7 TV Shows That Taught Us Something Incredibly Violent
6. How To Successfully Plot Numerous Murders Without Getting Caught By The Top 3 Detectives In The World - Death Note
As much as the show might be 90% talking (and 73 and a half percent talking in statistics), Death Note is a pretty violent anime. Here, we have an incredibly intelligent high school student find a note book that grants him the ability to kill anyone, so long as he knows their name. There are also about fifty pages (no exaggeration) of rules that took 37 episodes to explain, so I won't explain it here. With this power, Light Yagami pretty much desires to build his version of the master race... Your protagonist for the series, ladies and gentlemen. When I said the show was 90% talking, that doesn't mean it's boring. It's actually one of the most interesting monologue-ridden shows you'll ever see. Especially since most of it entails painting your characters into incredibly tight corners only to have them burst out as if they were never there (much like another show we'll see later on in this list). With this show, you really do get to exercise your detective skills to their maximum potential.
