A land war in Asia

June 21, 2007

Remember that scene between Cary Elwes and Wallace Shawn in The Princess Bride? Imagine that stretched out to about 200 pages, and you’ll have some sense of what awaits you in the concluding volume of Death Note (Viz).

I loved the series, but darn it, that was the head-talkingest tankoubon I’ve ever seen IN MY LIFE.

(And if you don’t remember that scene from The Princess Bride, and it’s because you’ve never seen it, you really should. Or you should read the book. Or both. It’s one of those rare instances where they’re equally good.)
