Exactly as planned

Yeah, right.
Now go kill yourself.

Why did L have to die? I've already watched the anime, but in my opinion Near, Mello and Matt can't make up for the loss L has left. This all only feed my disgust of Light.

I've already started reading Death Note #8, because for some reason, I always end op reading just 2 or 3 books, and I want to finally finish this series. ( )

2014 Review:

Death Note #7-9 (Manga Monday)

Light and L's battle comes to a shattering end but Kira's dream to rule the world is still being opposed by geniuses who take up the fight.

My Thoughts
L was simply out maneuvered by Light/Kira. And pays the price. Contingency plans are brought into play and L's successors, Mello and Near, come on board as main characters.

Mello and Near are L divided into 2 people. Mello is passionate, willing to go to extreme ends to prove his point and he has a sweet tooth. Near is much more emotionless, taking a disinterested view of everything and he likes to play with toys.

These 3 volumes were an almost literal wall of text. I felt like I was reading a novel instead of manga.

A couple of things struck me. First off, guns. Or the lack there of. Watanari had a sniper rifle and you see the police force having hand guns, but they never get used. And Light's father preaches about it not being legal for him to carry a gun when he resigns from the force. Made me thankful for our 2nd Amendment.
Second, the whole right and wrong of what Kira is doing. Everybody takes the stance that popular opinion is what makes something right. So if Kira can convince enough people to support him, then he'll be in the right and his cause just. What a pack of bologna! That pissed me off.

Thirdly, Light is getting more and more willing to do whatever it takes to achieve his goals. He is willing to sacrifice his dad, his sister, his girlfriend, everyone in fact, to get what he wants. Selfish beyond belief.
I felt kind of burnt out after reading volume 6 and wasn't sure how I was going to react to more volumes. And when L dies and Light has won, and then successors to L show up, my first reaction was "Come on, get it over with". But with 2 volumes of Mello and Near, I am liking this. They "do" so much more than L. And this series needed an action villain.

2007 Review:

L dies, Light takes his name, but there is a whole orphanage filled with talented youngsters being trained as potential "L"s. The 2 front runners take over where L left off, in trying to uncover Kira. Another Shinigami enters the picture, but is dispatched quickly enough. The new two "L"s are young, and not truly "L"s, but one takes the name of "Near" and the other, who turns out to be a practical sociopath, goes by the name of "Mello". " ( )

I will be doing a series review of the full series on my blog soon.

I really enjoyed this installment of the Death Note series. Full of action and exciting twists, this volume kept me on my toes.

Although all my favorite characters in the series thus far have died (Rem and L), I really enjoyed the plot twist that this volume held. I cannot believe that Light is taking advantage of Misa like he is. I hate Light, but I love his character.

I cannot wait to read more of this series. ( )

Sometimes I get frustrated with this series. Sometimes I think there is far too much explaining of the plot lines and the different theories that all of the characters have which has a tendency to slow the action down. Then I read other manga books and remember that this series is far superior to anything else manga. It's as simple as that. If you want to try manga out try this. ( )
