I know this sounds kinda goofy but I was wondering if any one had any idea of the approximate size of the death note note book or even a good size for it? I been looking at pics from the anime and the manga but it's kinda different. I figure around the size of those composition notebooks. I was just going to buy an official death note note book but I don't have the time for it, so I'm just going to buy a black hard bound journal from hobby lobby and paint death note onto it. But the ones I looked at online are kinda small. My bf says that they look small to him because of how Kira snaps it shut in one hand. I don't mind if it's a bit small but I don't want it to be too small.

And I didn't really know where to post this, I'm making my own death note so I stuck it in cosplay construction even though I'm only really painting death note on it. lol

According to this site- http://www.399animeshop.com/anime/death-note/death-note-book-replica-size.php

The death note is roughly 10.3" by 7.3".
And this replica is 8" by 5.5" - http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B000MZQY4Y/ref=aw_d_detail?pd=1

Its sounds like, going by the merchandise at least, that the "live" version is a very different size than the manga version.
Hope that helps

The movie version is giant compaired to the manga. But if all I can find is the smaller black hard cover journals then I may have to go on the small side. Funnily enough I wanted to buy the death note from that site but it's going to take a month or so to get here and I don't have that kind of time. But thanks for the help.

That's pretty small, 8 by 5.5.
