Light Yagami had picked up that fallen black book,
but hadn't yet worked out precisely what it could do.
We hadn't even heard of L, let alone Mello and Near.
We'd barely glimpsed Ryuk. We had no idea that Rem, Sidoh and a whole shadow universe of Shinigami were watching our world so closely.
With the saga yet to play out, there was no indication that Death Note would go on to sell over 30 million copies of the manga world-wide, nor that it would be adapted into a 37 episode anime. The three live action movies probably weren't even in the dreams of its creators. They were too busy worrying about chapters two and three.
Funny how time flies, isn't it?
Plus this isn't the first record of my musings ever. I wrote regularly on MangaBullet before it disappeared into the cyber equivalent of Mu. I was a moderator on Guns & Games too. Thus I penned many of that MelloxMatt community group's editorials.
I plan to write here as the mood takes me, or news about Death Note permeates the mists. It probably won't be a regular event, hence I recommend subscribing to the RSS feed, if you require an alert.
Or, if you're just passing by, ohai! See you next time. Maybe. Bye.
