Didn't hold a reread

The beginning is great but the MC ends up being lackluster after certain events ...
I mean there I've tried rereading various times but I end up dropping it. after having read other series with villanous or fugitive MCs this one just feels like the emo equivalent of an edgy MC.

Was expecting something good considering the rating, but out of the roughly 500 manga I’ve read by now, this was by far the biggest disappointment in terms of expectation vs reality.

There are a few decent scenes, but 95% of it is just a bunch of edgelords trying to look cool while sitting around talking and speculating about whether this person or that person might or might not do this or that. On the rare occasion something actually does happen, it wraps up in just a couple of chapters, and then it’s back to endless monologues and whatnot for a dozen-or-so chapters until the next point of progression. Rinse and repeat.

I can't remember the last time I got so bored from a manga.

Love the battle of wits. Only gripe was I felt it started to drag a tiny bit when they introduced M and N

The anime is inferior to the manga, it doesn't emphasize the good points and blur out the intelligence of the characters

Waste of a great potential

I have mix feeling about this manga. When it came out for the first time, I love it. Why? Because I know it will become some crazy psychological story on it and I love psychological stuff. I love Raito's and Ryukk's interaction and L. OMG! L is the best. He's so sharp, but Raito is no stupid either and they battling each other with brains instead of sword fight or gun fight.

Everything seems good, then what I feared is coming: Misa. Dear Lord. she's so noisy!!!!! Why every serious and good series always get ruined by STUPID NOISY USELESS brat?? How can she be SOOO idiotic?? It's clear that Raito didn't like her and only use her, yet she served him delightfully. How can a woman be so stupid?? It makes me SO angry! It feels like Misa was there just to be a fanservice, see how she dressed??

Misa is not only one who is stupid, that woman whom I forget her name is because she's the stupidest and be there just only for the manga ran longer. Well, but at least that woman didn't wear such a fanservice clothes.

The woman died anyway since she's an unimportant character


L is beloved by many many people including me.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
but when he died, I feel OK. Sad and hatred, but OK. By I mean is: it's for a better story. And what do I get? A mess up story without any direction and new characters introduction with something similar to L. I really don't mind L died, even though L and Raito's rivalry is what makes Death Note great. But to introduce new characters like L's duplicate, it's insulting, man... Let's be honest, L is what makes Death Note good. Maybe Raito and Ryukk were the one we root before, but after we know that Raito became cray cray, we started to question ourselves, which side we should choose? Many chose L's side (beside because how adorable he was) as we believe he's the GOOD side.


The (early) story is the charm point of this series. The story feels like it interact with us. The art is another charm that makes people love it. The character development was good, only for the main characters, like THE MAIN characters. The story goes from great to a great downhill and disappointment. Especially with the ending

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Raito died after so many battles. That's great. I don't hate him or dislike him, this is what makes him so great as a character, he has the most character development in this manga. From nice and naive young man to a crazy soul with the ambition of more power. He's a great character, but I keep wondering, who is the MC right now? This man absolutely a villain now. So we are following a crazy villain now? Ok then!


I eventually drop the manga for some reasons, but I can't help to say this: this manga is TOO long. For a battle between minds, it is too long. We know what direction the mangaka wants to give us, but crumbling several times after the mangaka wanted to make it longer (maybe for the sake of money, Death Note was such a hype back then.) Again, great manga ruined by the creator itself just because the creator didn't have a firm direction.
