What's this manga about? Can you post an intro to the story?

Gold Knight

Death Note is about an ace student, Light (originally known as Raito in the old translation) getting ahold of the Death Note, a book in which if a human's name is written, that person will die.

It was purposely dropped to Earth by a Shinigami (death god) named Ryuuku, who's bored and wants to see what Light will do with it just to pass the time. Light becomes kind of a vigilante with the book, deciding to dish out death penalties to criminals who've done truly horrible things, and create a world of utopia that way. His reasoning is that people will become too scared to do anything bad.

But when the criminals begin dropping dead, the authorities send the legendary detective L to track down the killer. It's a battle of great wits all the way through and I highly recommend it.

MnK, you'll notice eventually that we now have a subforum dedicated to Death Note. Feel free to break out of this thread and start a number of threads about specific Death Note chapter discussions, topics, etc. As well as advertise your own scanlations if you like here.

I'm a little bit behind on Death Note right now, but I'm the one to PM if you have any trouble with anybody since I'm the most knowledgable on the mod team here as far as Death Note chapters go.

(You can find the translated versions of the rules that have been listed so far in the volumes here. (http://townl.mangahelpers.com/index.php?topic=189.0))

As you may or may not know, a small list of rules about how the Death Note works and how the Death Notes should be used appears in each volume of the manga in Japan. Each issue contains several new rules (of course, I'm pretty sure that the tokobans only list the new rules). As of Volume 9, there are 52 (LII) rules. Some of these rules have made appearences in and had effects on the manga thus far and others haven't.

Of the rules that haven't appeared yet, do you think they will? If they do, what effects will they have on the characters and the plot of the series? Which rules do you think are the most likely to make an appearence? Which ones do you think will be left out of the actual manga?

I'm interested in the rules about how they're can only be six usuable Death Notes in the human world at a time. I believe that most of the major people could end up with a Death Note. These could include Raito, Mello, Near/the SPK, the NPA, Teru/Takada, and Misa. I'm interested in these rules and think that they might have an effect on the series later on.

Well, what are your thoughts?

Meijin no Kori

Who are your favorite characters in Death Note? Mine are as follows:

1. Near
2. L
3. Raito
4. Ryuuku

Gold Knight
January 09, 2006, 04:25 PM
I love L, mostly for his design. He's one of the most quirky characters I've seen in any manga. And it's almost enthralling how it always seems like he's thinking about more than what he's revealing to us. You want to know what's going on in his brain almost all the time.

Ryuuku, for a character mostly destined to comedy relief in the series, also makes a great counterpart to Raito/Light - it's rather funny how Ryuuku brings out the humanity in Raito/Light when he's not human himself. Without Ryuuku, the series would be too dreary for my tastes. So I also really like Ryuuku as well.

Raito/Light, I can't help but appreciate his smarts. He's one step ahead of everybody it seems, but at the same time I also end up hating him from time to time for his cold-bloodness. Very dynamic character, too bad there's not much of a chance that we'll ever get the "good Raito" back.

I also somewhat like Misa, if only because her intelligence surprised me. One of the reasons I don't like Raito sometimes is because it's so painfully obvious that he's planning to do away with Misa when her usefulness expires.

Meijin no Kori
January 10, 2006, 01:10 AM
Who do you think is/was the smartest person in Death Note? As for me, Naiujiro summed up my opinion well when he posted this:

See to me, Near/Light/Ryuuzaki all are unmeasurable geniuses. The only difference is the mentality that they look at a game.

L to me, was an aggressive and savage player at the short term game. He took big gambles, and used intimidation to throw his enemies off. He would attack relentlessly until they showed any sort of weakness. Then he would rip them apart.

Light IMO, relies on his ability to perfectly analysis the situation while keeping a cool head. He has moments in which he's not thinking more then a couple of steps ahead, but when he is actually in need to plan ahead; he plans the end of the game before the first move is made. He does this by analysising his opponents mentality, that way he knows what their forethought limit would be. He would do this in conjuction with simulating in his own head how he would act. He basically has a rediculously defensive short game, and a supreme long game that is not rivaled.

Near on the other hand, has a good portion of Ryuuzaki's aggressive tactics. He is certainly not Ryuuzaki in that respect. But he does have something that Ryuuzaki lacked in some degree. He has great long game mentality, similar to Light, but not as much potencial as Light has. He's like a mixture of Light's and Ryuuzaki's strongest points.

And Ryuuzaki's death meant nothing as to who was more intelligent. If not for Rem's emotional out brust, Light would have had his butt handed to him in 13 days if not sooner. However, Light did plan for Rem's interuption. Light's rediciously long game mentality just seemed to be the winning factor in that instance.

Gold Knight
January 10, 2006, 01:17 AM
I think between L and Raito, L is definitely the smarter one. As Naiujiro said, L nearly had Raito if it had not been for certain circumstances. Raito's cooler under pressure, though, but that's a bit different.

I agree that Near is likely more of a genius at this point, but I would like to read more before finalizing my opinion on anything. Still, voting for Near for now.

I've read it, it's a pretty good chapter, although I'm confused about what hapenned. But I wouldn't want to spoil anything for anyone :amuse

January 18, 2006, 11:44 AM
I don't think tha'll happen. Too many death notes would make the purpose of getting one inexistant. Besides, everyone would end up dying :amuse.

I've never even noticed new rules somewhere :oh Care to tell me where I can find them?

Been meaning to comment here for some time, but I want to re-read these chapters again first.

EDIT: Never mind. I've reread them all, but I'm just not up to thinking about it to that extent. It's a lot of predictions, what if's and stuff like that. I'm just not Death Note obsessed enough I guess, and anyway, I think the author intends to stay with the original rules written by Ryuk for the most part throughout the series - until another reaper comes to surface, at least.

lol. Yes, I kind of copycatted... but it is hard to come up with original ideas for threads sometimes. But of course, alot of forum share threads in common (favorite character, ect.), so these threads are not too big of a deal. I just did that to get this forum started off.

Good chapter. I love Near's Christmas Tree:


January 22, 2006, 06:54 PM
first if you haven;t read to chapter 60 for some reason please stop reading...now.

anyways moving on, I really really got into death note a while back and read 60 chapters in a day or 2, something then distracted me and i didn't pick it up for a few days to carry on and then got to thinking that the story really wasn;t as interesting without 'L' in it and that the story had lost some of its intrigue since he was gone. That led to me putting off reading it again, and then again untill I wasn;t thinking about it and had started on some over manga.

so really I'd like to start reading again, but I thought I'd swing by and see if I could pick up some assurances as to whether or not it picks up in its intrigue back towards the early points of Raito (or light if you insist >.<) and L's battle of wits.

cheers, and if that didn;t make any sense...sorry :P

Meijin no Kori
January 22, 2006, 07:25 PM
I still think the series is going good. Things between Raito and Near are getting interesting in the latest chapters. But since they still haven't met each other in person, it's still niot quite as good as Raito and L's battle of wits.

January 22, 2006, 09:51 PM
I second that, After L died i felt the series going down a little ( seems he was everybody's fav :P ), but the latest five chapters or so are getting more and more exciting, with Near coming far closer to the kira's then L has ever been, so whe're all interested in how raito/light will react.

January 22, 2006, 11:31 PM
cheers guys, I think I shall get down to catching up on things tomorrow :D

January 24, 2006, 07:20 PM
hmm i've thought about this before and theres something that i think everyone usually overlooks... you have to keep in mind its very difficult to tell "who is smarter" because they arent really even playing the same game... L is (was) trying to discover who Kira is while Raito is trying to keep his tracks covered so they dont lead back to him... given the circumstances i think Raito's game (so to speak) is much harder making it even more crazy he pulled it off (umm im not sure how whats the spoiler rulling in this forum but since the original post includes N & M i asume everyones at least to them sorry if not, but maybe you shouldnt be looking up information in forums if you dont want anything spoiled ;P)

...and then its hard to tell Near vs. L because tho Near has (probably) figured out Raito is Kira much earlier than L did tho the situations were much different and Near is working basicly from where L left off making it still very hard to judge Near's Ability

As for Mello... frankly im surpised hes not dead yet >< hes not a complete idiot (as i had once thought) but i think its rather obvious that hes not up to the ability that others are at IMO

but Near and Mello's full ability hasnt been shown yet and i think the author still has a use for Mello seeing how he's still alive ><

so untill Near proves hes smarter than L and Raito... Raito is still the smartest IMO!

January 25, 2006, 09:19 PM
I kinda like L ( and after that, Near, since he resembles him a little in looks and personality ), and i like Matsuda and Misa-misa, since they give it that little dose of humor when it's needed, lol. Never really liked Light himself though, he just seems a little to 'perfect' to me if you know what i mean...

1. L
2. Amane "misa-misa" Misa
3. Matsuda
4. Near

January 25, 2006, 09:22 PM
do i see a gameboy hanging in the tree up there? :) either way, it's a cool chapter, there just much more things happening those latest chapters, can't see a way out for light yet :P (apart from killing Near and Mello both obviously)

February 01, 2006, 09:53 PM
Not really that exciting of a chapter. I'm glad Aizawa is finally convinced that Light is Kira, but Near's overcautious investigation is kind of frustrating. I understand why he has to approach Light in this manner, but it just makes me anxious to see him actually gain some evidence on Light and close on in him. Speaking of which, it'll be really interesting to see how Giovanni approaches his mission of touching Mikami's notebook; maybe Giovanni'll just follow him around until he takes it out again, and then simply bump into him.

In any case, okay chapter, sets up the next few very well.

February 01, 2006, 10:01 PM
Ryuuzaki. Quirky and entertaining while being ridiculously intelligent and exceedingly clever, he made every chapter he was in instantly worth reading. The page where he, Light and Misa were dancing around in Misa's apartment is easily my favorite part of the series thus far, if only because I laugh out loud every time I read it.


I was really shocked and disappointed when he was killed off, because I was convinced that he would eventually take Light down (not knowing, of course, that Near and Mello would take his place).

Spoiler tags please XD - GK

Well, what are your views on this. Is L dead or is he actually alive? Do you wish that he was alive and in the manga again?
My view on this is that he is really dead. However, of course, I do wish that he was alive and in the plot.

Well, I figured I might as well make this thread. However, be warned. Any flaming and such will be deleted. So, which set of name's do you like better? The author's or the fans? What names do you think should be used in scanlations?

Authors name for the cast:
Light Yagami
Misa Amane


Fan Names:
Raito Yagami
Amane Misa

I, personally, like the fan names better. Well, have at it, you guys.

February 05, 2006, 03:12 AM
L was my favorite character before he died. I think he's dead, since he was killed when Remu used the death note. And I'm sure that Raito made sure that he was 100% dead since it was at that moment when L was 100% sure that Raito was Kira.

February 05, 2006, 03:15 AM
Wow, these covers are awesome! I haven't seen any of them until now.

February 05, 2006, 03:17 AM
I prefer the fan names over the author's name for them, but I guess we should be going by what the author calls them since it's his story, but some of the names like Linder just sound really weird.

February 06, 2006, 03:57 PM
is it impossible to add the files on mangahelpers database ? i can't log anymore townl forum, still, there r problem with my cookie wich i don't understand at all T___T i'm freezed at chap 92

February 06, 2006, 07:35 PM
i have the same problem here, my cookie settings are fine, but the site still blocks me, i let some friends dl them for my by loggin in my account and mailing them to me... want me to mail the last 2 to you then? 93/94? so you can see Near's new christmas tree  :smile-big !!

On another note: TOWNL Rocks!!

And now for something ontopic  ;): Story's going to get very interesting at this point, the only thing Near still misses ( apart from the Naruto Action Figures to be introduced in chapter 102  :eyeroll ) is some more evidence that Light is Kira, since he knows the complete story etc and has enough on Mikamo(?) whats-his-name ( i mean X-Kira ) and is driving Light further and further into a corner where i cannot see any way out of, and what has happened to Mello?? I havn't seen him in a while, will we see him anytime soon again when we never expected it  :amuse?

There's this small chance that if they want to stop the series, Light will be caught on page 100, but i don't think they will let it end so soon, as it's just getting the attantion at the moment ( live action movie etc.. )

And i don't think they will upload it at the mangahelpers server, as techniqually it allready is, notice something about the site www.townl.mangahelpers.com  :eyeroll

EDIT:"no thanks"

All the waiting, townl decided to do some older page's ( 73/74? or something around there ) before they did 95 and 96, waiting waiting...
*forces himself not to look at the raws* ... must...not...spoil....

February 10, 2006, 04:10 PM
yeah, the fan names sounds much better for all of them, but if the creator calls them different, then that's just the way they're called i guess... well, in the scanlations so far townl have been using the translated names right? like ridner and all up till now, so let's just continue that way then,

February 10, 2006, 04:36 PM
Yeah...the fan names are somehow better. They have a better feel for me. Raito Yagami sounds much better than Light Yagami for example.

February 10, 2006, 04:39 PM
I love L, mostly for his design. He's one of the most quirky characters I've seen in any manga. And it's almost enthralling how it always seems like he's thinking about more than what he's revealing to us. You want to know what's going on in his brain almost all the time.

You somehow speak out of my heart, GK! :amuse
I like L the best. Alone his looks are too great - these froggy eyes!

Gold Knight
February 11, 2006, 04:42 AM
Froggy eyes? XD Good way of describing them.

Gold Knight
February 11, 2006, 04:52 AM
I also prefer the fan names as well. Though these names were how I was introduced to the series to start with (Raito instead of Light) so I became more acquainted with the fan names as a result. It took me a while to get used to Light, but I did get used to it.

However I agree on liking Lester better, I'm not sure why Tsugumi Ohba felt like Rester was better, it just reminds me of the Japanese's infamous way of mispronouncing 'L.'

February 11, 2006, 09:38 AM
:D Haha..isn't it? That's the first impression I had of him?...Huh...this dude has froggy eyes. Xd

February 11, 2006, 09:40 AM
I also think that he's dead. And sendomedo, I agree: Raito isn't that the type to be cursory so he would have made sure that the death note worked.
But I wish he would be alive as he was my fav character :crying.

Gold Knight
February 11, 2006, 10:50 AM
I think he's likely dead as well. Hate to say it but it's one of the reasons I kind of lost interest in Death Note. Up to that chapter I absolutely loved it.

Made for good water cooler talk, though.

What's there to guess about alive or not? He's dead right? Are there any other theories about how he could 'a survived? Yeah, my fav character too, but the only way we'll be seeing him again would be if the amazing 'resurection (sp?) erasers' from the pilot chapter ( if you've read it ) will be introduced in the story... but guess that'll never happen, too dragonball z, and there's a reason why they were erased ( pun intended ) in the final incarnation of the story, and faster then you can say "plotholes". And btw, we have Near now, don't we? He is like L in many ways, apart from those freaky eyes  :ninja

Well can someone pm me if he shows up again? Near isn't nearly(ouch!) as good a rival, and so I won't be following Death Note (very closely) the way things stand. The only way I can see him coming back though, iis if one of the rules of the Death Notes state that the shinigami dies after one murder,
(being that of the butler assistant guy) and Ryuuzaki faked his own death.

Just a thought...

Death Note Page 99 Goodies! (http://mangahelpers.com/forum/index.php?topic=2817.msg38078#msg38078)

Ah, 99, which will forever stand in history as one of the larger 'death' chapters, starting with Matt, then Mello (!) then even Takada!!

Discuss away!

March 02, 2006, 06:32 PM
Thanks for the info...there seems to be qan spoiler about 99 on TWONL but still not scanlation regardin 98....we will have to wait

March 02, 2006, 06:36 PM
DeathNote is much harder to scanlate, not only because of the huge amounts of text but also due to the art, which is not as easy to clean as Naruto etc. Therefor TOWNL has to work hard to even be 2/3 chapters from the current one... Thanks a lot to to people that want to translate DN!!

I'm not touching the raw or translation until it has been scanlated to not spoil anything... So i cannot check myself whether

Mello really kidnaps Takada :wtf

Mello will die in 99 :wtf

March 04, 2006, 05:17 PM
L > all. :D I love everything about the dude.

Next, Light. Always cunning and ruthless. :tem

I also like Matsuda, always providing comedic relief in a tense situation, but still strives to prove himself.

Near gets bonus points for being like L, but he is too arrogant about his cleverness.

March 04, 2006, 05:23 PM
I like the fan names better, except for Raito, because when his name is "Light", it gives it another meaning.

March 04, 2006, 06:23 PM
i'm just wondering whether it was alright to use the translation in the TOWNL forums to scanalate?

March 04, 2006, 06:50 PM
Sorry, but i believe it isn't...

March 04, 2006, 07:09 PM
alright :P just wondering, cos i use them to fill the raws to read :P Guess it aint for public use :D

March 05, 2006, 03:06 PM
And I almost forgot that I like Mogi too I dont know why i just like him. And I know it has nothing to do with the topic but i must say that I hate Raito and Misa that stupid bitch.

Gold Knight
March 05, 2006, 11:25 PM
I'm currently on page 92 now (haven't seen any further scanlations). This one was Misa's dinner with Takada - that was pretty dumb of Misa to try to make Takada angry like that. Ridner's also probably wondering now if Misa really does have a connection with Kira.

I'm not sure what's all going to happen, but I enjoyed the twist at the end that seems to have revealed Mikami as the X-Kira to Near's crew.

EDIT: Ah, I saw MnK's threads here pointing out to latter chapters, so I registered at TOWNL and got everything up to page 97. Don't worry about helping me out.

Gold Knight
March 06, 2006, 04:07 AM
Mogi is a pretty cool character, but he's an "under-the-radar" type of character. But you can't deny he's one of the guys you feel like you can really rely on for assistance in the series, he's so reliable and dedicated.

As for hating Raito and Misa, they have their moments where I hate them too. Lately, I've somewhat been tempted to take Misa off my favorites list too. Raito hit it on the head when he said that Misa wasn't a proud girl (unlike Takada ) and I think that's what bugs me. Misa lets Raito control her WAY too easily.

Gold Knight
March 06, 2006, 04:09 AM
Yes, I think that's why I was able to get used to it. Light's an interesting name for a protagonist of a series like this.

Gold Knight
March 06, 2006, 04:14 AM
Agreed at least on Near's intelligence compared to L - Near did have a LOT of help from what L had already discovered. Raito also grew overconfident with L out of the picture. Given what L had to go through just having to start from square one as to WHERE exactly the murderer was, he did an amazing job finding the exact area, narrowing down the list of suspects to just one (and the correct choice at that), and so on. If L hadn't been dealing with an incredibly prepared guy like Raito, this case would have been over a long long time ago. That's why I said I'd like to wait until reading more before finalizing a decision on Near.

As for Raito vs. L in terms of smarts, it's a thin line. Yeah, certainly Raito out-witted L in the end, but Raito still to depend on "unknowns" to throw L off balance - L had no knowledge of shinigami and the notebook for a long time, what they can do, etc. In a normal world without shinigami, L likely would have fished out Raito a long time ago.

It just happens Raito had supernatural help on his end, so I'm not convinced he's smarter than L. He was just able to take advantage of L's ignorance about such matters.

I've caught up to the latest chapter (or page) of Death Note, so feel free to ask any questions pertaining to where events took place in the Death Note series. I and a few mods here will do our best to help out.

Bear in mind that if you are looking to get answers for events that you are confused about (instead of not knowing where they happened), it's best to just start a thread about it here. Thanks!

Gold Knight
March 06, 2006, 04:26 AM
Agreed with the others - Near is closing rapidly on Light, and it looks like Light has some serious problems in the recent chapters.

But I also agree that for me the series took a major shot when L died. He was my fav as well. But Near's doing a good job of being L's successor so far.

Gold Knight
March 06, 2006, 04:31 AM
I think Death Note has one of the most original premises out there.

It has the protagonist walking the line between darkness and light more than any central character in any other manga I've seen before - where he has the power of life and death, literally, in his hands. It all depends on your personal judgment whether Light is a good or bad guy ( in my personal opinion, Light is a bad guy since he manipulates people at any cost - even kills innocents ). Still, it's a nice metaphor to how some leaders in real life act and it's a lot of food for thought.

We also have an incredible battle of wits going on - instead of the typical Shonen battle of powers, it's mind against mind, whether it's Light against L, Light against Near, and so on. Sure there's some moments where Light and L did actually have a fistfight, but for the most part...

So to get to the point, I was wondering if you guys would like to see more stories like Death Note. What appeals to you about Death Note? Is it dreary to you, or is it interesting? Do you like that it concentrates on story instead of action? Do you think it keeps you in suspense more than any other story you've read?

March 06, 2006, 04:53 AM
I agree to you, GK. Death Note has a very appealing, interesting and original story.
I like about DN that it doesn't deal to much with physical violence but (as you already said) with intellectual mind fights.
Plus there is this difficulty to determine which is good and which is bad. In most mangas the protagonist is the good guy and the others are the bad ones so you have to defeat them.
Here you can say that Light might be a bad guy but still you follow him through the story.
In the means of character development and lack of physical violence it resembles perhaps a shojou manga which I find good.
So, all in all I just have to repeat what you already said.

March 06, 2006, 07:53 AM
You mean to ask would we like to see some Death Note clones out on the market?
There can only be one Death Note.

March 06, 2006, 08:48 AM
As for hating Raito and Misa, they have their moments where I hate them too.  Lately, I've somewhat been tempted to take Misa off my favorites list too.  Raito hit it on the head when he said that Misa wasn't a proud girl (unlike Takada ) and I think that's what bugs me.  Misa lets Raito control her WAY too easily.

Well of that thing with Miso lets herself control very easily  I hate her because of that too  I just dont like her.

And as for L's Dead  I feel pretty the same thing I miss him  and I am starting to lose interest in Death Note too. L was the requisite  spice in the series.
i've added the spoilertag, please be careful for spoilers, especially this one ;) - K

Yes but I like his facial expression too. His always serious and when he had to pose himself as misa's manager it was pretty funny too.

March 06, 2006, 01:12 PM
Of course but I think that's not what GK wanted to say.
He wanted to ask if we like that kind of story and plot and if we want to see something similar but not the same.

March 06, 2006, 03:07 PM
What i like about DeathNote is the way they think, and how it seems to be on an entirely different level to your own thinking, but you'll be perfectly able to follow their thought, and how the story is woven so ingenuisly, that when everything comes together, you really go 'wow...', some events where just so unpredictable that it keeps the suspense all the time... if i'm not making sense at the moment, here's an example:

When light touches the DeathNote again, regains his memories, and it is explained how he proved himself innocent, made someone else get caught as the 'kira', gets his powers back, and later, in chapter 58, is able to finally kill the most-loved character in the manga in such a brilliant and smart way... wow...

So yes, i would really like to see more stories like DeathNote, that do not focus on fighting but on 'thinking', wel that doesn't sound right, but imagine the difference between an action movie and a thriller... that's how i would compare naruto or bleach with deathnote...

March 06, 2006, 07:14 PM
too bad that nobody is releasing the scanlation yet and the raws for 99 and translations are already out there..

Thanks a lot for the update miso :eyeroll

March 06, 2006, 07:26 PM
thats cool, i might tried that as well...

March 06, 2006, 07:35 PM
Hmmz, this is better then just looking at the raw with
eyes and thinking things like: "noooo, Mello.... what happened...?! Do not want .....!!!"

Wait a minute, if mello dies, the chocolate distributor will lose a lot of orders, and then the price will drop.... yeaaaaaaaaaah!!!

March 06, 2006, 08:44 PM

I think you hit the nail on the head with your comparison between thriller and action movie. Although action movies are appealing and great for a nice entertainment thrillers can be so intriguing with their suspense that you can't lift your butt from the sofa. :p
So - more suspense/thriller mangas for us! yay :occa
The good thing about DN is how it evolves around Rei's power with the Death Note - his intentions, his moral, what he does, what others do to stop him etc.
That's what I like about it and I hope to see something like that in another (but yet different) manga series.

March 06, 2006, 09:03 PM
Rei? Don't you mean Light/Raito?

March 07, 2006, 04:54 AM
mistyping - yes, I meant Raito/Light.

Gold Knight
March 07, 2006, 06:11 AM

Yeah, I know, shinwei :p

As Miso said and as Khaludh so nicely explained, I didn't mean Death Note clones but rather mangas that focused on thinking and battle of wits and thrillers instead of physical action and slobberknockers (sorry, football term there).

However one appealing thing about Death Note is also its beautiful art, that makes you want to follow the characters. Now, normally, in comics it's very hard for detailed art to co-exist with a LOT of dialogue. But Death Note pulls it off quite nicely.

Gold Knight
March 07, 2006, 06:14 AM
Yeah, that was a funny scene when Mogi had to pose as Misa's manager. How he grinned and bowed and encouraged Misa - it kind of reminded me of what Arnold Schwarzenegger did in Terminator 2 ( the extended version ) when John asked him to smile.

I know what's going to happen, because my little sister is kinda spoilertag-resistant :crying - so there's not much to predict for me... suffice to say: you are garanteed to be moved by chapter 99. you either love it or hate it...

And if i didn't know anything yet, i'd predict the following: Near and Light meet, and Light freaks out after being driven in a corner by Near's conversation skills :sweatdrop to the point where he asks Ryuk for the Shinigami's eyes and does him in... though i wouldn't like to see any 'main' ( read: light, misa, near, mello ) character die again :crying *remembers poor little L... with his froggy ( copyright: Miso ) eyes...*

I feel like we didn't see a lot of him. It was mostly Raito/Light vs. Near, and Mello was randomly there.

OMG This was such a good chapter!

March 18, 2006, 06:55 AM
yeah, the only way that he would be alive is if rem died killing watari, and ryuuzaki faked it after watari died... but i don't think so. i think that ryuuzaki is really dead... :( he was my favorite character too... near is cool, but... doesn't match up to ryuuzaki.

March 19, 2006, 12:26 PM

i prefer these:
light yagami (whole new meanings)
don't care about misa, its the same either way to me.

so... kinda wavering in between the fan names and the author names... O.o

March 19, 2006, 12:58 PM
personally, i think that light (raito) is the smartest, because he has INSANE foresight and strategic skills. i mean, he perfectly planned out the whole thing w/ higuchi (although it didn't hafta be higuchi) from like 3 months before the whole thing actually happened, and everything went EXACTLY according to his plan, aside from a few insignificant details. he perfectly manipulated ryuuzaki and rem and forced rem into killing watari and ryuuzaki. his ability to plan extremely far ahead is pretty much unrivaled. he had to play the harder game of covering his tracks, remaining undiscovered, and killing ryuuzaki, and still won because of his skills

however, ryuuzaki would hav won eventually if rem was not there. his goal wasn't much easier than light's. light's goal was harder to reach, but when the last thing was reached, easier to accomplish (hard to try and find out L's name without slipping up, but after that, relatively easy to kill L.) while ryuuzaki's goal was relatively easy to build up to the last thing, but impossibly hard to accomplish the last thing (getting on the right track to be suspicious of light was easier, but getting concrete evidence that light is kira was almost impossible).

so for light:
long term --> kill ryuuzaki
short term --> cover tracks

is easier than for ryuuzaki
long term --> catch light in the act or force a confession
short term --> deepen suspicion and get some circumstantial evidence, or catch light off guard and catch him

especially since light is a master at long-term strategies. ryuuzaki had to rely on being able to catch light off guard, which he was able to do, but not to the point where he won.

as for near, he's obviously very very smart, but he's also a few added bonuses:
he has all of ryuuzaki's stuff to work off of, he can start from where ryuuzaki died.
he caught light off guard, light was not expecting to hafta face another opponent of around L's caliber.

with those 2 bonuses, near is doing insanely well. he pretty much knows everything, while light only knows that he used to go to that institute and wat he looked like 4 years ago.

and mello is smart, but he moves too rashly. he was able to do some important things, like establish the fake rules and all that, but in the end, ppl know his name, its weird how he's still alive.

March 21, 2006, 03:10 AM
I'm not sure about Ryuuzaki and Light. Ryuuzaki was smart enough to know the truth and catch Light off guard. He was good at pressing pressure upon Light, causing Light to be off guard once a while. Unfortunately he was not smart enough to prevent Rem from killing him. He might be focusing too much about Light. On the other hand, we can't really say that Ryuuzaki doesn't doesn't devise a plan ahead of time, keep in mind that he could not possibly do that. He was still pretty much ignorant about the notebook and all the death gods and everything.
As for Yagami Light, he is just extraordinarily smart and lucky too. He knew how to use his opportunity of having Rem on his side. He was a mastermind at thinking WAYYYY ahead of everyone. I still don't know whether he is smarter than Ryuuzaki though.
As for Near, I think he is even smarter than both of the other two. He was never caught out of guard like the old Ryuuzaki. He knew how to play his game and leave space for flexibility of his plan, like Light. Additionally, he also keeps on attacking Light continuously, looking for his opponent's weakness. But can he think far enough to beat Yagami?

ps. forget Mello, he knows what he's doing but he doesn't really think of the outcome of his actions. He's simply too impatient and rushy.

March 24, 2006, 11:44 AM
Well I'm keeping my eye on death note, checking every latest chapter (tho not really reading them)
I dont care about spoilers at this moment anymore, I just want it to get back to the level of intrigue it had before the timeskip.
Sure its getting back to some excitement right now, with the climax. But the wait has been too damn long; and the series is probably ending with the current set of chapters of this volume.

Funny how Light keeps saying that Near is no worthy rival compared to L. Like he's saying what the fans are thinking ^^;
And the worst part is, Near will probably beat Light because he was underestimated in the end.

March 24, 2006, 12:47 PM
Prediction: Mikami will kill everyone in the building, including Light.

TOWNL (http://www.townl.com/index.php?topic=660.0l)

We're left waiting for another chapter....Mikami loots crazy in those pictures though

Miso here: Death Note 102 Goodies! (http://mangahelpers.com/forum/index.php?topic=2822.0)

March 24, 2006, 02:18 PM
Mikami is gonna kill Light.

I really cant see this going any other way; Near beating Light is just too... bleh; Maybe because Light underestimated him
But can you really see this ending with the good guy winning? A Good guy who's lesser than L?
Well, L's disadvantage was that he came across Light too soon I guess.
And seeing Light win? Nah... dont tell me Ohba is gonna stretch this shit again

Altho going on with this manga with Mikami? Hmmm... Even tho I said it I doubt that too
Only one left will probably be Ryuk XD

March 24, 2006, 10:47 PM
Hmmm i think you can't guess what is going to happen in the next chapter, the author will come up with something else i think.
You can think that Mikami is going to kill everyone including Light, but near seems to have a plan ( if that was his plan Mikami would now be kira and continue to kill, so he has no reason to smile ) , maybe when they tailed Mikami Near exchanged the notes and nobody is going to die in the next chapter...

March 25, 2006, 08:08 AM
I believe it will turn out that Mikami's death note is fake and none of the persons mentioned in his last writing will die =/

March 25, 2006, 02:46 PM
Thats too predictable. If that happens I'm disappointed.

March 25, 2006, 03:38 PM
If Near does die.....

thats L, M, N..........than maybe someone whos name starts with "O".......than for "R", Ryuk maybe will become bored again and kill Light.

Eh, Who knows. I want Light to win.....but.....it seems to easy.

March 26, 2006, 04:20 AM
toooo easy, even...

near knows something, wait and see.

March 26, 2006, 04:32 PM
Yeah, i don't think Mikami will kill Light. There's a great chance, but i don't think that will happen. I don't even think anyone will die.

March 26, 2006, 11:40 PM
well, Light winning might not be too easy, look at how he beats L. . . he didn't really do anything, it was that simple

however, i think there's a great chance that Near thought about the fake note. i mean, he would have been careful, right?? but if N really beat Light, that would be the end, and that's not going to happen, yet. It's too easy

March 27, 2006, 08:07 AM
It doesnt have to be the end necessarily. I mean think about it, as long as there are gonna be Shinigami's, there are gonna be death notes...

March 27, 2006, 10:54 PM
I'm still mad at raito for getting L killed. I hate him. I hope he dies.

I bet Near lives and proves to the world Raito's Kira, mikami dies...but Kira's followers support Raito. So Raito is in the open now but he continues with the kira stuff and he's safe because he has enough support now. Near has to escape another mob of kira followers and somehow he'll get a group of people to go against Kira and maybe it'll turn into some big world war in the end. Kira followers vs. Kira haters.
something like that anyways.

March 29, 2006, 05:02 AM
I like your idea reticentness ^^
It's really hard to think of a good end and to guess what's goin to happen in the next chapter...
Light can't die anyway, it would be the end (can u really see DN goin on without light ??). If near wins maybe light can come up with something in jail :s
And if Light wins.... maybe he can start building his Kira world freely :eyeroll ( and maybe another guy will chase after him... )

March 29, 2006, 09:44 AM

Well , haven't read it yet , was wondering if it's any good , and what's about....

March 29, 2006, 05:17 PM
damn, Light looks worried and surprised as hell. Never really seen him like that.

March 29, 2006, 06:05 PM
Some rough translations says things like that :

Light : "Near, I win"
Mikami : "I... I just did what you said ..."
Ryuk : "Hi, I'm Ryuk" (...)
Near : "You're nothing next to L" (...)

Then he is going all mad because they didn't die, and Near act like "I fu**** you up, now I won, and you're a dead man"

Cant' wait for Raw.

March 29, 2006, 06:32 PM

Thanks for the pics and the rough translation.
And I agree to kaze950: Raito really looks surprised in some of the panels.

More spoiler pics with a translation can be found at TOWNL forums (http://www.townl.com/index.php?topic=698.msg14294#msg14294).

PS: I made a post above yours, pwned hokage so that it can be modified with raws and so on later.

March 29, 2006, 06:52 PM
To think that this would be the end of Light is kind of easy tho ^^;
But who knows, this manga needed to be shaken up.

March 30, 2006, 03:16 AM
I think that's would be the end of this manga. I can't think of anything that would bring him back, or anyone.
Yeah, i agree that it's kind of easy, but how else can it turn out??

I love death note . . . don't want it to end yet

March 30, 2006, 05:01 AM
hi,guys,i'm new here,,just read page 101,,what's wrong with Light and Near???why are they both smiling???arrrgggghh...can't predict what will happen next... :darn

March 30, 2006, 06:27 AM
This isnt a manga you can drag out forever. And the fact that its so text-heavy and alternative for a shounen, I think that 12 volumes will be quite enough. To be honest the whole second arc after the timeskip was just dragging the story out in more than one way.

TOWNL has published their translation :)

I've found a translation by Hanabi posted in TOWNL forums. And another one by Rikki-Tikki-Tavi :)
I've msg them ... waiting for reply ... hope they got no problem providing a translation for scanlation :)

I can't understand these politics ... They do the best scanlations i've read ... it's obvious it needs lots of time for'm to be that perfect ... So why do they have problem when whoever shows up with a poor scanlation compared to theirs ... It's obvious everyone will download their scans and reread the manga and keep'm for their archive ...

I know, i know it's understandable ... they do great work ... but at least i would be happy if they released a LQ scanlation quickly and then take their time for a HQ one. I'd have no problem then ...

Can't wait for page 104 ... DNote it's awesome :)

March 30, 2006, 09:45 PM
I can't believe it that arrogant little puke Near actually won :mad.... and he outwitted Kira by far..... I actually thought that Kira was gonna win!

March 30, 2006, 10:05 PM
yeah me too...
Light looked so scared we've never seen him like this, not even with L...
But i don't think it's the end yet, i hope light kill near asap !!! After all near showed him the note with his name written on it and light allways have a piece of note with him :D
There is no way Near could end DN !!! Kill this arrogant brat Kira !! lol

March 31, 2006, 12:28 AM
Light will definitely think of something although i don't think it will get him to the peak he used to be at.

March 31, 2006, 01:35 AM
I'm hoping that Light had a page of the Death Note with him, and writes down Near's name.

Meijin no Kori
March 31, 2006, 01:55 AM
Light doesn't know Near's name; only Mikami does. Light might know that one of them is named Nate River but he doesn't know which. He doesn't know what name goes with what face (if he even remembered all the names that Mikami wrote down). So I really don't think so. And it's not like they'd give Light a chance to write on the note anyways. All in all, in looks like Light is pretty screwed, IMO.

March 31, 2006, 02:05 PM
This was the best chapter ever. Never seen Raito so cornered before. I bet he forfeits the noteboke in the next page. Then Misa will be in the picture again.

March 31, 2006, 05:14 PM
Is there a scanlation out for this yet.

March 31, 2006, 07:16 PM
I don't know how much of this I can take!! Now I don't mind Light finally being out-smarted but why does it have to be Near?? A snot-nosed 12 yr old of all people?? :mad I don't care how much of a prodigy this kid is, there's something that one can not know without experience in life...why not just have Light kill off this little nappy hair punk and introduce his 3yr old successor already.

The first part of DN was pure masterpiece...Mello and especially Near have completely ruined this manga. I guess something that burned so brightly can't sustain for too long :crying

March 31, 2006, 10:07 PM
thinking about the end of DN, do you really think Raito could win at the end ?
I mean he killed a lot of people, he killed L, he killed his father, he killed Takda etc...
How can someone like this be the winner at the end ? it wouldn't be very moral for a shonen...
( i hope he win anyway xD )

March 31, 2006, 10:12 PM
No - otherwise a link would be posted here.

TOWNL hasn't done it yet and our own members here at MH (like gto0o) do not constantly scanlate - I think it depends if they can get a hand on a translation. (Townl translations are not for use for other groups.)

March 31, 2006, 10:43 PM
From my point of view, Light was doing good :)

I hope he wins. I want to know what the next chapter will be. Most likely, just Near explaining or Light explaining (since Near said he's smart enough to understand) the thing with Mello

April 01, 2006, 08:46 AM
Light doesn't know Near's name; only Mikami does. Light might know that one of them is named Nate River but he doesn't know which. He doesn't know what name goes with what face (if he even remembered all the names that Mikami wrote down). So I really don't think so. And it's not like they'd give Light a chance to write on the note anyways. All in all, in looks like Light is pretty screwed, IMO.

I believe Light knows that Nate River is Near. Because he must have instructed Mikami to write Near's name first. And Mikami writes from left to right. Light knows that. So he can figure that the name at the far left must be Near's. But I dont know how this info can be useful to Light :P

I also thought about how Mello's death could be of any help. Now I guess Near already knows that one cannot use the note to manipulate a victim into killing someone else. Therefore he concluded that Mello couldnt have died in the explosion Takada caused (it is not hard to guess that Takada was killed by the note, it only makes sense). Then the only possible reason for Mello's death is Takada. So either Takada has the original note or it is possible to kill with the scraps of paper from the note. Near realized this, and concluded that Mikami has been using a fake note, and Takada has been judging. So he was able to see into Light's plan.

Since Near said to Light: "I lost, you won" and then explained Light's plan, and then said "its all thanks to Mello" this means that without Mello's death Near could not have foreseen Light's plan... When kidnapping Takada, Mello said to himself:"...this is the only way..." Mello must have guessed that Takada was gonna kill him, so he thought that his own death is the only way to beat Near... so he threw away his life to surpass Near... and he succeeded! Hats off to him. So far everything makes sense with the above theory... But if this is the case, then for my theory to be true, the SPK must have confiscated the real notebook during the last 3 days... In this case, Near saying "...but Lester said he can copy the notebook in time" makes more sense. OK. Good. But for how many days has Mikami been carrying a fake notebook? 2 ? That is a little too careless... Light underestimated Near... He didnt think that Near would reach the notebook so early I guess. The only point this theory fails is about when SPK replaced Mikami's real notebook... it must be within the last 3 days... Did they already tell us in the manga since when Mikami carried a fake? I dont remember the old chapters very well, now I'll go read them all over again.

Edit: I did read the old chapters. OK, now I've got it. In chapter 99 when Takada calls Mikami and says: "please judge as much as you can", Mikami leaves the office because Takada was going to die, and he should judge for two more days. This is happening on the 25th, and SPK & NPA meeting is on 28th. He goes home to get the real notebook. In those two days he must have gone to the gym or something, giving SPK a chance to replace the real notebook with its fake (handwritten by Lester). Hmm, actually Mikami goes to the gym every thursday and sunday. 25th was monday, which is also the day Takada died. So 28th is thursday. SPK cannot have replaced the real notebook on 26th or 27th, otherwise the criminals judged on those days would not die. So they must have done it on 28th morning (the meeting was at 1:00 pm).

Edit 2: According to 104 spoilers at TOWNL, Mikami goes to a safe deposit box in a bank to write in the death note. Later Lester sneaks in there and gets the note from the bank (how does that happen???)

April 02, 2006, 11:11 AM
I love Near, and i think this is the end of DN

If the series continues, there won't be much to add... it's close to perfect as is :p - and about the current happenings, either Light is a very good actor, and he wants to get rid of Mikami here too, or he really is panicing (sp?) now... What do you think Near meant with the 'it's thanks to Mello'? Did it form a distraction so he could steal Mikami's notebook or something? Probably something smarter, more unexpected then that...

The only person that can save light is Misa, but doubtful.

This should be a proper place to end the manga, or else there will never have an ending! *cough, hikaro no go

He will definately talk himself out somehow although everyone already knew he is Kira (I don't know how that's gonna happen) but Light is Kira, the god, god can't be hopeless, right? I still believe that he will figure something out. He's not really panicing, he just got mad because his plan didn't go as he predicted. Light is like that he kinda turn "insane" for a moment and then start laughing and come up with some plans with his hot evil smile and then he would do the super evil laugh. . .

Light won't write on his death note. no one would let him do that. Besides, it would be a lame ending if he does.

Thanks for the RAW! =)

So does anybody have any idea why Raito smiled at the end?

April 07, 2006, 08:53 PM
Raito's text on the last panel: -> "Yes. I Am Kira!"

April 08, 2006, 12:39 AM
I hope he has something up his sleeve. It would be too sad for Death Note if he goes without a bang. ^_^

April 08, 2006, 12:20 PM
Two possibilities :
_ He's become insane
_ He's got a trump card. But, what would that be ? Will he sacrifice his lifespawn in order to get the name of everybody and write it down in the notebook ? I think he still has a sheet of paper of his note, right ? (In his watch)

But, if this is his trump card, he got to write them down quite fast.

April 08, 2006, 01:56 PM
I don't think he's going to use the note from his watch, at least not for the moment, everyone would kill him before he even gets the chance to pull it out or grab a pen.

April 09, 2006, 01:27 PM
I don't think either. This was the most obvious trump card he had, however, in this manga, whatever happens is NEVER obvious, so...

April 09, 2006, 11:26 PM
Anyone know where to DL Death Note(other than stoptazmo...sooo slow)? I only have the first 43 chaps and I'm dying to read more. Direct downloads preferred.

My school blocks IRC so that's no good. Mangatraders is down so boo.

If not I'll just trudge through stoptazmo.

Like Hermie said, the best way to get chapters of part 2 ( 60 - present ) would be TOWNL, best quality out there, but they do not have some of the older chapters... I would suggest downloading from them and filling the holes with stoptazmo or something :). As for part one... i don't know, i got them from stoptazmo, but there has got to be loads of better sites for that...

April 10, 2006, 08:08 PM
any places anyone knows there are downloads of each volume?

id rather not organize all the crap by hand >_>

April 10, 2006, 08:15 PM
Perhaps MangaTraders?

April 10, 2006, 08:48 PM
My only guess I can offer is that when they take Light to their car he's going to find a moment to pop the watch and bust out his scrap piece of deathnote paper.

I mean who'd think of hiding scrap paper in his watch? Near also showed Light all of the names in the notebook. I'm hoping for something like, Light saying "Thank you a lot Near." And PRICK write write write.

40 seconds later everyone in the 2 or 3 cars start clutching their chest and gasping saying WHAT? HOW?

And Light calmly makes the driver stop the car, unlocks the door and walks over to Near. He will then wave the scrap note piece in front of him saying something like "Thanks for sharing all of your names, I'll take the notebook from here."

Bam, Light wins, they find the bodies of SPK and the Japanese Anti-Kira Squad (whatever they call themselves). That's the last straw for the Kira worshippers and news breaks saying "ZOMG THE HERETICS WERE PWNT LOLOLOL!!!1!!!"

Kira wins and Death Note ends until someone else comes up to fight him.

For all I know maybe a L clone or a twin brother because L is pretty leet like that.

What do you guys think? Other then probably thinking that I'm nuts.

April 10, 2006, 09:39 PM
It seems realistic...but a little too simple for Death Note. Since I don't have a better hypothesis, I'll stick with yours however.

Only thing to figure out now. What will happen when Kira/Light's enemies are dead ?

Another L ? Frankly speaking, that would be REALLY lame.
A trio composed of O, P and Q ? It would be quite disappointing.

Who could be his future enemy if this is the end for Near ?
A shinigami ?

April 11, 2006, 03:59 AM
Well, now that I start to think of plausible scenarios...at the beginning of the manga Ryukie (or whatever the hell his name is) mentioned that those who have used the Death Note won’t see heaven or Hell, what if they were to become shinigamis? And what if Light has already foreseen this as his very last ace in the hole? After all, I wouldn’t be very hard for a cleaver and hard working Light to take over the Shinigami World and extend his kingdom to the Human world.
But for that to work, Light will have to commit suicide or make Near kill/execute him, and that would be a very cheap and far fetched ending, and not a likely move for Light

April 11, 2006, 09:30 AM
Ryuk: "When you die... i'll be writing your name in my notebook, but... "
Ryuk: "Don't think that a human who uses the DeathNote can go to heaven or hell."

Yes, Light becoming a shinigami sounds very likely now that you mention it, but only at the end of the series, and i do not think he will kill the one to catch him ( Near? ) after that, more likely he will repent, if that's the right word...

April 11, 2006, 10:44 AM
Hmm...maybye he somehow got a bunch of folowers to hide and surround the building...?? Afterall he got many followers right..?? So he can like bring an entire army out to support him?? Then near has no choice but to give up..or use the book in some way... O.o

April 11, 2006, 10:12 PM
Man, this is why Death Note rocks. you never know whats gonna happen next. Perhaps he'll do the trade for the eyes and use a backup sheet of paper to kill them all, but that seems too desparate for him. Maybe it is almost the end of the series, but if it is, I don't see Light repenting.

April 11, 2006, 10:22 PM
yeah, this IS one of the best mangas ever. great art, great story, and honestly, once you start reading its hard to stop. every chapter has you anxious to find out what happens next.

April 11, 2006, 10:26 PM
I think he's likely dead as well.  Hate to say it but it's one of the reasons I kind of lost interest in Death Note.  Up to that chapter I absolutely loved it.

Made for good water cooler talk, though.

Yeah, after L died i kinda lost interest in the series... but just a few weeks ago I decided to read through again up to the latest chapters. Damn, it was worth it.

April 11, 2006, 10:33 PM
Well, kira’s followers might be the key to Light’s triumph. The governments of Japan and the US are supporters of kira, the evidence Near has means close to nothing if Light is not considered a criminal by the governments and people of the world, so I don’t think Near will submit Light to any authority other than his own. Been that the case, there are two options:
Confinement (which we have seen not been enough for Light)
Execution (which is unlikely for many reasons)

But who knows…

April 12, 2006, 09:03 AM
Found page 105 spoiler pictures.. :amuse



April 12, 2006, 05:18 PM
WTF? Light got fooled? And now he's either gone off the bat, or come up with an engenious plan....

So, MH, which is it? Has Light figured out a way to escape, or has he just lost it?



Any discussion about the pics MUST be put in spoiler tags.

April 12, 2006, 05:30 PM
the chapter will start with Light panting heavily on his bed, "Fyuh, everything's just nightmare.." and his life goes on as normal before he got the death note... he's wondering how his life would be if everything's real...

if it'll be really like that, i would gather all my death note comics and burn them down..

April 12, 2006, 06:15 PM
Hum.. well i dont know maybe he'll use the old trick again? I really dont think they'll let him write anything... Let's wait and see. I'm really desperate to know what tha hell is gonna happen. I'm with Raito even if he's an evil MF.

One of my friends and i call him the Checkmate King, so he still got a chance to save his ass from the abyss of hell

April 12, 2006, 09:16 PM
Light : you got me cornered.. but.. you don't know... anything...
Near : what? (he's hidden something...)
Light : that...rarghh!!! I can turn to Super Saiyan!

*knock knock*
Akira Toriyama : s'cuse me... I believe my assistant delivered the wrong script?
Light : oh is that right? no wonder it sounds weird...

after some rehearsal...

Light : I am indeed kira...
Light : but, didn't you know...
Light : whenever ryuukyuu eats an apple...
Light : I ate 2....
Light : that gaves me the power!
Light : take this! APPURU APPURU HA!
Near : NOOO... CAN'T BE! ARGHH..
Light : HAHA! haven't you ever heard the saying "an apple a day keeps your doctor away!"
Near : ARGH! How could I not notice he was eating apple all this time..
Near : He must have been eating a lot of them, to be able to produce such power
Light : Hey, you're supposed to be dead by now..
Near : oh..right.. ARGHHH.....

April 12, 2006, 10:17 PM
Maybe Light will step over Near’s toys, effectively privating him of his powers and rendering him just an ordinary, albino, arched kid.

Dante Shamest
April 13, 2006, 09:50 AM
Light: Hahaha.
Near: (Why's he laughing?)
Light: You forgot the most important thing, Near.
Near: ?
Light: I have more fans than you.
Near: !

* Light's fans break into warehouse, kill Near and we all live happily ever after *

April 13, 2006, 10:31 AM
maybe light has already forseen all this (unlikely), and wrote down all the members of the police squad's name in advance

so now he only has to deal w/ nate and his goons

April 13, 2006, 10:37 AM
mm...but evan so...its 4 to one.....so things may not look so good for raito if he doesnt have an army behind him...O.o

April 13, 2006, 12:58 PM
Awesome, The Touch :D
This looks like a very interesting chapter again...

April 13, 2006, 03:48 PM
Two meanings: either he is waiting for them to drop dead and is stalling... or he is referring to the piece of note in his watch

April 13, 2006, 03:50 PM
addikt, If your translation is right I think I'm gonna cry from joy. Go Light !!! XD

April 13, 2006, 04:23 PM
Huh, he deleted his post? Now i have double-posted XD

April 13, 2006, 04:32 PM
That's wierd... Maybe he deleted it, because his translation wasn't right after all.... :(

April 13, 2006, 06:11 PM
ya sorry guys, my translation was off :blink

someone else translated this line as :

1) Light (thinking) Even though I tell them, they're uncomprehending fools...

2)Light (... only a fool who does not understand would say such things...)
The pillar sentence ' as for the hand which is left...! ? '

April 13, 2006, 11:47 PM

Near loses.

Light's looking at his watch. Look at the frames throughout the chapter; the watch is emphasized...

He's up to something, obviously. I'm thinking Near is about to die. That's why Light started explaining himself. He wrote when he fell down and grabbed his head.

The others...I'm thinking Light may have written down the names of his people ahead of time...I suspect they'll give him their guns and then die, and he'll blow Near's people away in the confusion...


I'm not really sure how it will play out. The one thing I'm basically certain of, though, is that Light is about to turn the situation around and Near is enjoying the last seconds of his short life.

Dante Shamest
April 14, 2006, 01:10 AM
Hmm, maybe he's still thinking of a plan on how to write their names, since the piece of death note is behind the watch.

April 14, 2006, 01:56 AM

Hope we'll have a free one soon...

April 14, 2006, 03:04 AM
Well since Mello died I don't see a reason why Near should be alive... XD
I hope that Light's plan is not about writing all of theirs names on the sheet of paper in his watch... It would be kind lame way to kill everybody. >< I belive he is more smart then that. GO Light !

PS. Sorry for my poor English. XP

April 14, 2006, 12:12 PM
Heh...or maybye after since its near's habits to break things after he builds em maybye he will be like....okay ...since i found the murderer ill let him go...thta kind of mood? But i dont think so right..??O.o..if thats the way then it would be really dissapointing...

April 15, 2006, 06:30 PM
Well i alredy read it... it's difficult to tell... Lame using the watch? Yeah it is, but if you are in THAT situation is a really consistent method, so far has a 100 % of success ^_^

Go Raito! (i hate calling him Light)

April 16, 2006, 08:51 PM
But even in THAT situation using a sheet of Death Note in watch would be pointless... They would kill him before he tries to do it. Maybe this time his watch has camera in it, which transmits everything to Misa XD At least she's the one who didn't screw up everything like Mikami did ;P His character had so much potential in the begining but in lastest chapters he become a really freak :P

BTW. I also think that "Raito" suits our Kira better but I can't find a reason why I still use the other name... XD
Come one Raito! You can do it :) "Belive it !" XD

April 17, 2006, 08:24 AM
this chapter make light looks like a dumb since he lost even if near says that he(light) won ....maybe it was just for pitty...ah poor light...

April 17, 2006, 08:49 AM
well, he said that he is kira so now what he will do?

April 17, 2006, 09:49 PM
He's looking at his watch, what could that mean? gah...I hate cliffhangers :darn

April 17, 2006, 10:30 PM
I hope Light uses the paper in his watch to kill Near. I hate Near and I hope he dies. I agree with Light and I believe that Near will never be as great as L. L > All.

I'm pretty sure he's dead, I mean at that time when Ryuzaki and Watari died, Rem did too, so yeah...he's dead

April 18, 2006, 10:15 AM
Well we all know that something seems to be coming to an end, but you can never tell for sure.

Although, ocean posted the following in the Weekly Jump Livejournal:

Death Note <- next title "Come to End" The title is my free-translation, but the word "幕" is used in the end of a play. I'm guessing 2 chapters from now (107) will be the end of Death Note!?

Not very unlikely, especially when you look at the surge of a lot of new series lately (Tsugihagi, Murasame, To Love, 2 others, and I'm probably forgetting a few others)

April 18, 2006, 10:35 AM
Yeah, my guess was that it would end here, and i think the series will be perfect if it ends here, i'm looking forward to a new series by the same mangaka's :)

( btw, i used to think that ending the series after the *everybody that read it knows event* would be best, but this whole 'succession' idea is much more interesting then i thought... i don't know what could be added to the series from this point to not make it something that just keeps repeating and dragging forward :s )
