Death Note Anime Character Designs:




I'm not a fan of the first image, but I am fairly happy with the character sketches, especially for L. Looks pretty true to the manga. :D Raito looks slightly off and reminds me of how Misa drew him when she was explaining the shinigami eyes, haha. Otherwise, can't complain. Someone is going to have a lot of fun animating Raito's million layer hair..

Looking forward to the sexiness! :D

Light's hair alone will use 70% of the show's budget. D:

Oooh these are rad.
They probably have a team for Raito's hair.... what a pain.
I'm glad that this is really close to the manga, I was scared for a bit that they would kill it. Hooray!

Haha Yeah, same. I'm pretty impressed with how close they are to Obata's style. :D

This looks exciting! I can't wait to see it in action!

They kept it closer to the manga better than I expected!

O_O; It must've taken them hours to get Raito's hair right.....let's hope it doesn't kill a few animators during the making of the anime....

It'll be worth it.. >D

Oh wow, it's like perfect. O_O

I can't wait to see L in animation~~~!!! They better have good quality to the motion! >^_^<

*goes off to be fangirly*

Ahhh, yes, that's always the problem with anime; beautiful images and somewhat lacking movement. Hopefully they'll try and keep a good balance. X3

Mm, the art looks good. :D Just hope the animation quality matches it, hm.

Well i suppose they need something to keep everyone entertained visually while the talking heads happens but i don't think everyone playing "99 animators on Light's hair" was the intention ^^o

99 animators on Light's hair, 99 animators on Light
He does a head flick, one gets sick
98 animators on Light's hair...

haha, I'd feel pretty badly for his hairdresser too.

I am... so happy with this... :D

please let the animation studio be kyoto animation please let the animation studio be kyoto animation please let the animation studio be kyoto animation please let the animation studio be kyoto animation please let the animation studio be kyoto animation please let the animation studio be kyoto animation please let the animation studio be kyoto animation please let the animation studio be kyoto animation please let the animation studio be kyoto animation please let the animation studio be kyoto animation please let the animation studio be kyoto animation please let the animation studio be kyoto animation please let the animation studio be kyoto animation please let the animation studio be kyoto animation please let the animation studio be kyoto animation

xD

Well, apparently the studio is Madhouse...

i was hoping for gonzo

That is really staying true to the manga style *__* I was worried it'll be more off...but whooo~~

And yes, ahah, they need like 50+ staff to animate his hair XD;;

Even tho i'm thinking ahead...I wonder how near would look in anime...his appearance kept changing constantly in the manga.

Now to see it animated!

Yeah, that's a good question. I wonder if they'll stay with normal!Near or marshmellow!Near. o.o

that looks really awesome! I can't wait for it. 8D

You know, I wonder if they're going to do any face faults or such in this... Now that would be interesting.

Chibi!Raito and Ryuk OMGWTFYAYZ would so pay to see that

Hahahaha Oh, dear, I hope not. XD

Yay!

Is it just me, or does the colored illustration in the first page look like they tried to make Light's face look a little bit more like the live action movie actor's? It's something about his nose and chin. I don't recall him looking that much like him in the manga!

I wonder if those rumors about voice actors (Romi Paku as L for example) are true or not?

I just hope Madhouse does a good job ... usually they do well, but I didn't like their adaptation of Paradise Kiss (wtf was up with the SD style)?

Yeah, Raito does look a bit off in the coloured version. But that's just a promo pic and now in the character design, so, hopefully, it'll get fixed. XD;

Wasn't Romu Paku confirmed..? o.o

Yeah, Paradise Kiss was a disappointment, but Nana was very well done, so I think they learned their lesson. ;)

This makes me a happy fangirl.

Ooh, it's looking really good so far. Hope that holds up. XD; I agree though, Raito does look a little off..

His jeans look...I mean there's tight, and then there's "painful".

I wonder how they'll work with each characters er.. logic sequences. Sometimes they think alot and it'd be difficult to watch say, Raito thinking how the hell to get rid of L for like 5 uninterrupted minutes. Hah xD

Haha Anime is pretty good about thought sequences, I think. Like, they can show flashbacks and shit so you're not just staring at Raito's eyes for a half hour, haha.

Looking good! Raito's arms and legs seem really, really skinny, though. o_o

Ergo = God doesn't eat :(

^^

I was wondering when they'd start an anime series. XD Lol Maybe they'll get the cast from the movie to do the voices. ^^ That would be almost too good to be true though.

Thanks for posting these, no one can ever get enough Death Note. I also love your icon. XD Lmao

Re: ^^

Haha That WOULD be good. I mean, the movie actors are probably too busy to do voice over work, but it'd be pretty awesome if they could. XD

Hehe Thanks. :3

Re: ^^ - (Anonymous)   Expand  

I'm putting all my trust in Madhouse right now, cause they won my heart with their treatment of Monster. Death Note has a similar tone, and both require excellent animation quality to match the storylines. I'm so excited for this, though I have to say that the art felt slightly cheapend on first glance, because it doesn't have the pure richness of the manga art by principle alone.

But, oh man...I think it'll be good.

*dies happy*

Blau approves *thumbs up / dorky wink*

Ahaha. I hope they don't take out TOO much dialogue. >_o

It looks better than I expected, actually. : D I was afraid they would screw up since the artwork of DN is so detailed, but this looks good! Hopefully they'll keep it up.

Squeee~

oh, but I like his million layer hair. xDDDDD

Sorry for commenting on a month old post but.... I'm so ecstatic to see how the animators did Light/Raito, L and Ryuk. I can't wait to see the anime!

(Light's hair seems difficult to animate, but it will probably work out!)
