But as Ryuk foretells, Light's actions will not go unchallenged...
These anime are essentially the same, Code:Breaker is just more action-oriented where as Death Note is more logic and thinking. They both deal with a teenage boy who kills any criminal not being judged (or not being judged well enough) by the law. Ogami and Light are also very similar characters in that they can be nice and charismatic, but also cold and calculating. There's also an irritating female main character in both of them, though Sakura is significantly more annoying than Misa. Both of these anime explore the morals of a death penalty and who has the right to pass judgement on criminals and who doesn't; as well as despite killing people being evil, does killing criminals actually make the world a better place?
Both of these anime develop their plot around the exploration of the meaning and limits of justice, asking tough questions about who has the right to judge and kill criminals.
Both animes are Awesome but in Code Breaker characters do not afraid of anything.In Death note he must hide himself from the police.
I love both series a lot, thought it's a shame that code breaker is so short. It really asks for a series 2!

But when the youthful detective becomes the target of a sinister duo can he get to the bottom of their scheme before he is dragged into a world of darkness and hatred?
I think Code:Breaker and Shinrei Tantei Yakumo are alike because both have the following in common. First they both have main male characters with a special power. Second they both have a female character who doesn't give up or quit after main male character is rude, cold hearted, and generally tsundere against her. Third they are alike because both characters use their power to do what they have to do but aren't thrilled to have to do the task at hand. Fourth, I think the characters are kind of similar in appearance.
I think if you liked the supernatural aspect of Code:Breaker you would enjoy Shinrei Tantei Yakumo.
Code Breaker is alot like The Unlimited they both have this dark and twisted world where ppl with out power use ppl with power for their own ambitions. Both main characters have a similar way of acting cold towards others even though they actually care more than they want ppl to know. Both main characters are also very cool and powerfull.
