(2021) List of Best Soundtracks in Death Note

Death Note is a psychological thriller series created by Takeshi Obata, which has come a long way since its introduction. What started as a simple story with a genius boy and his Shikigami partner soon turned into a war of minds between Light Yagami and L. Death Note has been often dubbed as one of the best thriller animes of all time and rightly so. The twists and turns in this anime have left the audience gasping and made them think time and time again what will be the next move of the characters. 

Death Note follows the story of Light Yagami, who is a brilliant student living in Tokyo. One sudden day he happens to stumble upon a Death Note that was dropped into the mortal world by the Shikigami, Ryuk. On discovering the hidden powers of the notebook, Light takes justice in his own hand and goes on a killing spree. He gets blindsided by his sense of justice and also becomes overconfident in his ability. A mysterious person by the name of L decides to put an end to this serial killing by going head-to-head against Light. The rivalry between Light Yagami and L has gone down as one of the most well-written rivalries in anime history.
