** The American adaptation was hit by this before production even began: apart from a couple of [[AdaptationalNameChange name changes]], many were upset over the [[RaceLift white-washing]] of the Asian characters into White ones. [[UnfortunateImplications Ironically]], they became even ''more'' upset when they found out the actor playing L was neither White ''nor'' Asian.[[note]][[ButNotTooForeign Not that he was all of either to begin with...]][[/note]] [[http://www.thebitbag.com/racism-death-note-film-casting/176399 There have been reports]] that these whitewashing accusations have even reached the crew of the film itself.

** Many a fan's reaction to the liberties taken by [[Series/DeathNote the TV drama]]. Especially Light's transformation from a resident MagnificentBastard to a much more [[TheEveryman average individual]], with a habit of [[TookALevelInDumbass catching idiot balls every chance he gets]]. Then there is L, who's quirks have been completely changed from his manga/anime version, and his Jerkass tendencies were arguably magnified, or more focused on.

** Interesting enough, both the Live Action Film and TV adaptations have also followed this sentiment, choosing to end it at the first arc. even the creators eventually acknowledge this in their next series, ''Manga/{{Bakuman}}'', where they more or less admit that it should have ended after the first arc.

** Interesting enough, both the Live Action Film and TV adaptations Films have also followed this sentiment, choosing to end it at the first arc. even The TV adaptation is...complicated. It foregoes the creators eventually acknowledge this in their next series, ''Manga/{{Bakuman}}'', where they more or less admit that it should have ended after TimeSkip, but keeps most of the first events and characters from the second arc.

** Apparently, Hideki Taniuchi is a big fan of IDM scene. ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VhU8tOypxac Taikutsu]]'' borrows the main riff from ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mAkgUeJDgQ8 Turquoise Hexagon Sun]]'' by Music/BoardsOfCanada, ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yXOCFn9jtx4 Near's Theme]]'' is pretty much an instrumental rendition of Music/AphexTwin's ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A-Pkx37kYf4 Nannou]], and [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bRKtdYfpYI0 Suiri]]'' sounds suspiciously like [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i524g6JMkwI Cliffs]], another track by Richard D. James.

** Mikami is highly revered by fans for being arguably the most [[LargeHam over the top]] user of the death note and for having a genuinely sympathetic back story. He's one of the few aspects of Part Two that's not a BaseBreaker. It helps that he's also [[{{Bishounen}} very pretty]].

* ArcFatigue: It depends from reader to reader, but many feel this around the second arc (see EndingFatigue) and some even as early as the first arc. This is a series that prides itself on being a "[[ReverseWhodunnit howtocatchem]]" GambitPileup war between two MagnificentBastard characters... and obviously those with low tolerance for endless mind games are going to rage.
