A brand new DVD box set for Death Note is coming out on November 4th 2014.
There's no Viz press release accompanying it. It's just mysteriously appeared on Amazon, where it's currently available for pre-order.
This is possibly to tie in with the sudden flurry of interest in Takeshi Obata again, as he's the artist behind another recently released Viz title All You Need is Kill.
Plus, you know, he'll be at New York Comic Com and all, where a whole new cohort of potential Death Note fans are sure to discover him. Though you'd think that a November release date would be slightly missing the boat, if that was the reasoning behind it.
But who are we to quibble over speculations? There's something new in the Death Note world! Hurrah!
So how new precisely is this? Comparing this with the extant Viz Death Note Box Set 1, the answer is not a great deal.
