I haven't watched the anime in a while, but I recently saw the Deathnote movie in Netflix (US adaptation) and it really can't compare with the anime. I was hoping for a good adaptation, but it's just a testament to how the anime really did a good job selling the concept and the relationship between Kira and L.
I really like Strike Witches, that's probably my favorite. If you haven't seen it before and you like anime I'd highly recommend it. I also like Full Metal Alchemist, my husband is a big fan so that's what got me into that series.
