but am sooooo reluctant to fork out the money for it...

Obata Takeshi is finally releasing a Death Note artbook (blanc et noir), but more importantly, a
is being released in May, with the pre-order (obligatory) deadline on February 21!!! That's just 16 DAYS away!

As for what's in it...
blanc et noir special version
A diorama with Light, L and Misa
Scaled shinigami figures
A pendant
A sticker set(?)
but most importantly
SIX B4-size colour illustrations
SIX B4-size monochrome illustrations!!!

The cost...18,900 yen...

It's available in Singapore through Kinokuniya for $400, and will probably be availble through the Australian store as well...at any rate, I don't have enough time to place an order at the Singapore store anymore (maybe that's why I didn't look at it online until this morning)...could I ever justify the cost?

Oh yes, and my computer won't be ready for another 2 weeks...which means I'll have to hope someone will be heading to Melbourne and beg him/her to carry it for me...*sighs*

I stopped following Death Note about...half a year ago, but I'll be catching up on it soon (if I can be bothered flipping between scans and translations). Nevertheless, I really love the art - Obata Takeshi has really improved since the early days of Hikaru no Go. XD

At this point, it seems that there are going to be two Death Note movies... I'm not entirely sure what to think of live-action DN - it was disconcerting enough that some children in China (I think it was) bought replicas and actually wrote names in them and stuff...

>_<...wait wait Death note is written by the same person who did Hikaru no go XD...^_^; typical of me not to know coz I don't follow manga very closely...

Currently only got into D.Gray XD..and I wish there were more scanlations ....damn licensing of the manga Grrr...

...okay ppl in China do wierd things....you have heard they banned Memoirs of a Geshia XD I don't know why XD coz I missed it on the news...had to work that nite

Not exactly - only the artist is the same. Hikago's story/dialogue writer is currently working on another manga (called Yuuto, which is about young kids speed-skating) and Ooba Tsugumi is responsible for DN's plot etc.

Same here...I have to learn to stop picking up stuff which isn't finished. >.< But the group working on it should hopefully be back soon...otherwise I'll just switch to relying on raws and translations for yet another series...

Might have something to do with the warped political system...not that capitalism doesn't give us problems as well, but that's another problem. Apparently, it's banned because of 'negative social response', and for fear that it would revive memories of how the Japanese treated Chinese women in previous generations. Go figure...
