Hi, i think it was friday or saturday i started to watch Death Note at like, 10 on the morning, and i watched untill 12 on the night, i was all into it, the day after, i completed it, second best Anime show ever, loved it(K-ON! still best ;))
I just wonder if there's any similar or recognizing Anime to Death Note, since it was great. :)

You should check out this anime called "one outs". Its basically like a baseball version of deathnote but without the killing. Its about a gambler/pitcher who goes to some crappy baseball team and turns their fortunes around by completely outwitting the opposition and staying 2-3 steps ahead of everybody. It has many of the same strategy and suspense elements that made deathnote so good. If you liked deathnote, I highly recommend this show, even if you dont particularly like baseball

There's this one anime called Hell Girl where if you type in the name of the person on this website they'll die. I think it's more of a girl's anime, though, but the way people die is very similar.

Code Geass is the closest anime to Death Note, but that still doesn't mean that they are very alike. Both are unique in their own ways, I prefer Death Note.

Although they arent similar i was quite satisfied watching bakuman after deathnote its a solid anime, give it a try if you have some spare time.

I agree with Val Pal, Jigoku Shōjo seems thesame as death note. Though there's no hysterical laughs. Just pure death. :3

On the manga side of things, Liar game is a suspense/sort of gambling manga. It's pretty good, and it has the opponents outwitting eachother all the time! C:

Hell Girl is similar because it has to to with killing bad people except it is on a hell website.....FYI, it has 3 seasons

I've shown Death Note to people who've said they hate all Anime, and they wound up loving it, but still hating every other Anime they've seen. Death Note is in a league of it's own, there will never be another one like it. You might want to look into the Anime, "Monster". It starts off kind of slow, but if you can maintain your attention it's pretty epic.

I'm going by genre rather than story plot here. If you want good vs evil in a general way, there's a ton of Anime out there for ya.
