Anyone else reading Death Note? This manga is shoooo good!!
It's one of my favorite manga at the moment, along with Tsubasa:Reservoir Chronicle, there isn't much "action scenes", it's mostly about how Raito and L uses their oversized brains which makes the whole thing very intense, though Raito is getting annoying with his "I'm smart, handsome, rich and I'll rule the world" attitude.. I prefer L XD he's so cute =3
For those who doesn't know about it: the story is about Raito, a guy who finds the Death Note. The Death Note is some kind of note book that if u write down the name of a person in it, that person will die. Sooo Raito has this wonderfull idea of killing off all the criminals so that he can create a perfect world in which he'd be a god. Isn't that nice? Of course, the police can't let someone kill all those ppl, even if they are criminals, so they ask the famous detective known as "L" for help....

An overachieving 12th grader, Yagami Light is an aspiring young man who seems destined for success. Unfortunately, his daily habits bore his incredible intelligence--So when a strange black notebook falls from the heavens during his class, it isn't long before he takes it for himself. In his room, he finds, to his horror/fascination, that the Death Note is real, and owned by Ryuk, a Shinigami (Death God).
Any person's name written in the Death Note will die in 40 seconds as long as the person's name is not the same as some one else. But if the name is unique, the person will die.... without fail.
With this supposed gift of God, Light swears upon his grave that he will 'cleanse' the world of the evil and needless people that inhabit it, thus creating a utopia for all. With the world's greatest detective, L, hot on his tail, will Light's ideals prove too fantastic to realize, or will he succeed bringing justice?
