To escape the stress, he later enrols himself in an agricultural high school but soon realises that life in an agricultural school isn’t easy as he believed it to be.

Death Note will give viewers another otherworldly experience just like Fullmetal Alchemist but in a quirky way. The premise of the show revolves around the life of Light Yagami, a genius teen who stumbles across a mysterious notebook which grants the user a supernatural ability to kill anyone whose name gets written in its pages. The thriller series centres how Light uses the Death Note to kill those whom he deems morally unworthy to change the world into a place without crime.
