An early abridged series, pre-dating LittleKuriboh's original ban from Youtube. It originally ran for 5 Episodes, went on hiatus, then came back for two further episodes when interest in Death Note increased due to the dub airing on [adult swim], and then finally stopped all together despite the creator's plans to start back up.
