Netflix describes the series:
Armed with a notebook that allows him to end lives, Light uses his newfound powers to levy vigilante justice while he evades world-renowned detective L.
In Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata's original supernatural suspense manga, a teenager named Light finds a notebook with which he can put people to death by writing their names. He begins a self-anointed crusade against the criminals of the world, and a cat-and-mouse game begins with the authorities and one idiosyncratic genius detective.
The manga ran in Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine from 2003 to 2006, and its 12 compiled book volumes have 30 million copies in print. The manga has inspired three live-action films and a 37-episode television anime series in Japan. Netflix is streaming the anime series in India. Viz Media released the Death Note manga in English.
