Death Note will have a collection of short stories in February 2021
Shueisha publishers have listed a new book for the franchise based on the manga written by Tsugumi Ohba and illustrated by Takeshi Obata, Death Note, which will be titled “Death Note: Short Stories” and which will be published in Japan on February 4, 2021 As the title suggests, this volume will be a collection of short stories written by the creative duo, however they refer to a collection in novel format, not manga.
Ohba and Obata published the manga in Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine between December 2003 and May 2006, with a total of twelve compilation volumes published. A novel written by Nisio Isin, titled Death Note Another Note: The Los Angeles BB Murder Cases, was published in Japan in August 2006.
The play inspired a 37-episode anime adaptation produced by Madhouse Studios, directed by Tetsurou Araki and scripts written by Yoshiki Inoue, released in October 2006. Two compilation films titled Death Note: Rewrite were released on August 31, 2007 and August 22, 2008.
Death Note Synopsis
A shinigami, as the god of death, can kill anyone, as long as he knows the face of his victim and writes his name in a notebook called "Death Note". One day, Ryuk, bored by the lifestyle of a shinigami and interested in seeing how a human would use the notebook, drops it into the human realm. High school student prodigy Light Yagami is the one who stumbles upon the notebook and test your abilities by writing the name of a criminal on it. When the criminal dies immediately after his experiment, Light is shocked and quickly realizes how devastating the power he has now gained could be.
