I’ve been meaning to cover this Anime for a long time now, and the fact that it isn’t on any major streaming platforms makes it really hard to find nowadays. I’m referring to the Anime that came out in 2006 and has been very popular ever since. (A cool side-note is that the voice actor who plays the main character, also is the voice actor for Rock from Black Lagoon).

Anyway, the Anime follows Light Yagami, who is a normal, undistinguished college student — that is, until he discovers an odd notebook lying on the ground. He soon discovers that the notebook has magic powers: If someone’s name is written on it while the writer imagines that person’s face, he or she will die. Intoxicated with his new godlike power, Light kills those he deems unworthy of life.

The two meet when Tsuneo finds Josee’s grandmother taking her out for a morning walk. This Anime came out in 2020 and was certainly a good movie to watch during the lockdown. It’s a good Sad Anime and we suggest you give it a go.
