wow now you have done it im a fan of both animes but you cant compare death note and naruto series at all here is my biggest reason:
naruto: over 500 eps and like 2 main & 2 side characters dead.
death-note: 37 eps and also 3 main characters dead & and a million others
,k 3 side characters.
who powns more at deads i guess its death note...
1 thing the "old laddy" in episode 3?
1st episode was for a diploma,2nd was with konohamaru,3rd a squad...
im questioning your way of explaining / you say something randomly because the first real dead was that of the 3rd hokage and the only old hag that dieds was chiho(or something like this) and that was in the shippuden eps.
