if no one comes up with anything… is a great place to look for fonts—I’m sure they have something like that. I did a quick scan of some fonts there, but it could take some time to find it.

or if you feel really adventurous you could try and make your own!

Check What the Font – you can upload a JPEG & isolate each letter for comparison. Straighten out that book cover in Photoshop first.

I tried what the font after rotating foolaholic’s picture – it is a really great idea. i did not however find a good font that matched deathnote’s. do you have a sample that does not need to be rotated?

Just for kicks, I rotated, cropped, and reversed out the text. What the Font found no good matches. It could be handlettered.

I found this after some googling. It has most of the fonts used in the manga including the one your looking for.

@dr hat: I just googled death note for that picture, and I’m sure there are better images, it was just the first to spring to my attention.

@batman: many thanks for this find!
