Death Note

If you ever watched or read the Death Note series, you’ll know that it’s a chilling story of cat and mouse between Light Yagami and L. The battle of wits is ever-shifting and highly addictive. The Death Note may be a dangerous weapon in the wrong hands, but it’s also a powerful tool for someone like Light who has immense intellect. If you’re looking for something new to read, or are simply keen on watching Netflix and falling asleep with your laptop balanced on your knees, you should check out the Death Note series. It won’t be easy to put down once you start reading it.

What is the plot of the story ?

Light Yagami is an intelligent, if not a bit reckless high school student with a bright future ahead of him. He wants to change his boring life and start a new life in America, but his father insists that he must stay in Japan. Light grows restless and wishes to escape his dull life and is eager to start a new adventure, which lands him in the midst of the mysterious Kira case that leaves the authorities baffled as to who is behind it all.

Who is in the cast ? What role did each character portray ?

The cast include L ,Light Yagami , Misa Amane , Ryuk , Watari , Teru Mikami , and many others. L is the main villain of the series. He takes up residence in Light’s apartment, but he’s a master schemer, always looking for ways to outsmart Light and his associates, who he calls “losers”. For example, during a meeting between the first Kira suspect (Takeshi Natsume) and two police officers (Kenzo Tenma and Ruka Urushibara), L changes his appearance to look like one of them. His goal is to control all of humanity with his Death Note. L also considers himself God and thinks that it should be him who rules the world as opposed to Light Yagami.

What are the difficulties they face ?

The difficulty is that Light has the Death Note and with L posing as himself, the situation worsens for Light. The Death Note can be used for black and white deeds, but it can also be used to achieve any other deed. If you believe that crime should not be punished with death, you could always get rid of a troublesome enemy like via disappearing them. This will ruin all their plans to rule the world. So as L pretends to be a part of the Kira organization or another force, he would kill anyone who exposes him while getting rid of those who are too close to Light Yagami and his friends who know how to use the Death Note.

What are the themes ?

The themes are about choice in the sense of being able to choose between doing good or evil. The theory that states that the human race would be better off if there weren’t any laws, is sensible to those who believe it. But there are other people who think of this theory as a dangerous one and even though they may be on the fringe, they definitely won’t want to see it come true.

Who is the antagonist ? What are its motives ?

The antagonist is L , who pretends to be part of the Kira organization. His motive is to become God and rule the world . The first volume ends on one of the most shocking moments in the series and it has a very strong impact on many readers. One of the two leads has been killed by L. The police, who took him into custody, thought that he was Kira when he was posing as a member of the NPA and as an officer from different law enforcement agencies .

Who is the most loved character ?

The most loved character is L by many readers. As mentioned earlier, he’s a master manipulator; he changes his appearance, he’s devious and has much confidence in himself. He doesn’t get angry easily, but when he does explode, it’s like the world implodes around him. You can also say that he’s the most hated character, who uses the Death Note to kill people as a hobby.

Who is the most loved character ?

The most beloved character is Watari Yagami, Light’s assistant who works as his personal secretary. Watari is a kind soul who always takes care of his boss, Light Yagami. While the male leads seem to be fighting with each other, the female ones all seem to support one another. This is because they’re family! As if searching for something or someone to kill is not bad enough, they also have families whom they have to leave behind, but they obviously stay strong. After finding out that L has been posing as a member of the NPA and an officer from different law enforcement agencies, L then kills him in the first volume of Death Note .
