Massive Death Note Collection Packs 2400 Pages

The “Death Note” epic is now available for eager readers in a package befitting the series’ three-year run. All 12 volumes of the world-renowned manga are now available in one tome that reportedly weighs 10 pounds and spans 2,400 pages.

The book was recently released in Japan by publisher Shueisha for 2,500 yen, or roughly $24. That’s a pretty steep discount compared to the “Death Note” box set, which retails for just under $70 on Amazon.

“Death Note” is the story of Light Yagami, a high school student given power over life and death when he discovers the Death Note, a book that has the power to kill any whose name is written upon its pages. Light uses the book liberally, attracting the attention of international policing agencies and the spirit world alike. The series was written by Tsugumi Ohba and illustrated by Takeshi Obata.

The series has won international acclaim since its first publication in 2003. As of April 2015, there are 30 million copies of “Death Note’s” 12 volumes in circulation worldwide. Madhouse Inc. developed an animated adaptation of the manga, directed by Tetsurō Araki, in 2006. The 37 episode-long series won Best TV Anime at the 2007 Tokyo International Anime Festival.
