2014 Review:
Death Note #10 & 11 (Manga Monday)

Synopsis
After Mello's spectacular failure in books 8 and 9, the story shifts over to Near as he tries to catch Light/Kira in a cerebral mastermind game of wits.

My Thoughts
After Mello's failed attempt at getting a hold of Kira, and the death of Light's father, things go from the action/gungho/blitz-a-rama to a much more "I know that you know that I know that you know that I know that you know" type of back and forth between Light/Kira and Near.

Sadly, Near isn't as likeable as L was and a lot of his motivation is proving that he is as good as L was. L had a hate/love camaradie with Light that was fun to read about. Near and Light just talk over the phone and we get to hear their thoughts about how they're going to outwit the other.

However, the end game is in sight. Both Near and Light/Kira are finalizing their plans to outwit the other. And just as Near and Light begin their plan, Mello shows up at the end of book 11 to throw a monkey wrench into both their plans.

In summary, I was going to throw in book 12, the final book as part of this review. But I thought it was worth it's own review next week. So next week will be the review for book 12, the final book in the Death Note series.

2007 Review:

Light has Misa pass her notebook onto another Kira worshipper. Light also begins to start a relationship with another woman to better control the "new kira" and in anticipation of getting rid of Misa. Shows just how cold hearted Light truly is. " ( )

I had completely deleted Mikami in my memory for some reason. Guess he deserved it.

The story is nearing its end, and you can feel it. Two more books to go. Brace yourself for the last and final battle... ( )

Excellent Deathnote hit a definite lull in some of the later volumes, but I'm happy to say that Vol. 10 is picking it back up. Light's back on his game, and excellent new character is introduced, and some of the supporting characters develop some backbone. ( )

This volume was better than I expected. When I heard that Light was giving the Death Note to another person I was worried that it would go even more downhill but I actually enjoyed reading about his successor, Teru Mikami. I am interested to see where this goes. It can either benefit Light or do the exact opposite and expose him. Because he can't talk to Teru, being under suspicion again, there are going to be some inconsistencies, which Near and Mello will be sure to pick up on. However, Light is brilliant so I not sure exactly how it will work out yet. I'm got two volumes left in the series so certainly something will happen and soon. Looking forward to seeing how this concludes. ( )
