Death Note:the abridged series (often abbreviated to DNA or DN:tas) is a group project within the small voice acting group TAC Productions, uploaded to the account AwesomeChroniclesUK .

The series has had a shaky upload schedule, having over a year gap between episode 7 and episode 8 (with an episode 1 remake in between). It was effectively cancelled in early 2013 and revived in mid 2014 where it continues to air.

On December 31st 2012, the group's original account, 'tehawesomechronicles', was allegedly hacked. While the channel and videos remain untouched, the password and recovery email was changed, rendering it useless. This is supposedly one of the reasons why episode 8 took so long.

Season 2 seemed to have been originally planned to focus around Bane, Mogi and 'Kira' as seen in Episode 13, but was retconned by the release of Episode 13(2) in which the second half of the episode was replaced by more traditional DN:tas material.

The opening used for episode 1 (and the episode 1 remake) came from a short AMV of different clips of the show put together - the remake intro was very similar with minor details being changed - to the song of 'Dear Agony' by Breaking Benjamin. When the intro was quickly deemed too long and somewhat of a downer, is was changed to another, faster paced, AMV to the song of 'Shut Me Up' by Mindless Self Indulgence. While the opening itself has changed visually from AMV styled to featuring exclusively clips from the original show's opening and ending sequences, the song has remained the same.

The opening for the second season of DN:tas went through several different forms - originally, the song 'Dance With The Devil' by Breaking Benjamin was to be used but, with the scrapping of the original opening, it was changed to 'Stupid Mother F***er' by Mindless Self Indulgence. Since what editor Rellik deemed to be a 'decent looking intro' couldn't be formed from that song, the current season 2 opening of DN:tas is another sequence of clips from the shows openings and endings to the song 'Labyrinth' by Oomph!.
