Light is trying to rescue his sister, who has been kidnapped by Mello, but his sister’s safety is the last thing on his mind, as he truly wants the Death Notes. Will he kill his family in order to get it?
This was a decent manga, the plot is still an enjoyable read, but I don’t like it as much now that my favorite character is absent, it also seems to be painting Light in a worse light, ironically, and I already dislike him as a character.
The plot is still good, but without L, it’s not nearly as good as it was. Near and Mello just aren’t as interesting as well. It’s all right, but I don’t really like the characters as much as I did before.
The artwork is still stellar and character designs are still nice to look at and Taekashi Obata is still a great manga artist. Tekashi Obata is a great artist and the artwork looks really good.
As a not to parents, Death Note is rated T+, and contains fantasy violence, blood and language, along with adult situations. It’s recommended for ages 16 and up because of those reasons. Read it yourself before deciding if you want your younger teen to read it.
And Now that one of the good characters is gone, should you continue buying this manga series? Well, if you really like Death Note, you’ll want this in your manga collection. I enjoy the series, but for me, it’s not a must-have or must-buy. It is definitely an enjoyable read if you like both supernatural and detective stories. It’s worth your time, but you’ll have to decide if you want to spend money on it, because it’s been out awhile and you can get it from the library.
