To tell the story of Death Note, its creators made 37 episodes, 12 manga volumes, multiple live-action adaptations, and a few light novels. With all this content flying around, it makes sense that Death Note obsessives have come up with all sorts of clever fan theories. An anime that involves mind games, mystery, and the concept of morality, Death Note practically creates its own conspiracies from the get-go. That's why so many people consider it their favorite anime of all time, and turn to more shows like Death Note.
Death Note fan theories help make sense of the anime's deep questions and the loose ends it fails to close. Like Attack on Titan fan theories, Death Note theories add new layers to the series while also offering conclusions to its open endings.
