Half the blog entries that I'm writing right now name-check readers giving me the heads up on something or the other!
This one is a little different.
Death Note News reader Bill Samyin has a question for us. A big chance to put our collective detail obsessed heads together, and see if we can answer it for him!
I'll admit straight off that I haven't got a clue. Which should tip you off on the level of obscure knowledge required to meet his query. Good luck geniuses of the Death Note fandom!
Bill noticed that not all Death Note anime is created equally. There are little tweaks in the visuals, which may alter from version to version. Different releases reveal these minute changes, which only the most keenly observant Death Note fan will ever notice.
His example concerns the Death Note itself. There are adaptations where the camera zooms in to show Japanese names with their English translations right alongside them.
- What other visual changes exist between different Death Note anime releases?
- Do we know which box sets have which visual differences?
Can we help him?
To help in recalling all the different box sets for the Death Note anime, here's a link to the relevant category in our store. I knew it was worth those hours collating them thus far! Though it's not yet an exhaustive list in there.
I'll do my best in the quest by prioritizing getting that completed and up to date. So much to do, so little time...
