Death Note : v. 10, Paperback
4 out of 5 (4 ratings)


With Near openly suspecting the new L of being Kira and sowing doubt in the hearts of the taskforce members, Light is once again forced to pass the Death Note on to another to take the heat off himself.

But this time, Kira chooses a disciple from among his true believers.

With no way to contact his successor directly, Light must rely on his faithful follower's adherence to Kira's goals.

Will this newest move bring Light's ideal world closer to reality? Or will losing control of the Death Note spell Light's doom?

Complexity, thy name is Death Note, volume 10. In this one, things go even more haywire for Light as Near and Mello join forces somewhat. Multinational doings and really, really deep thinking on who's who turns this volume cerebral, together with near-all bowing down to Kira. Also, what's happening with Kira?Unnecessary addition: I must say I really like Mello's new-found glam.

This volume was better than I expected. When I heard that Light was giving the Death Note to another person I was worried that it would go even more downhill but I actually enjoyed reading about his successor, Teru Mikami. I am interested to see where this goes. It can either benefit Light or do the exact opposite and expose him. Because he can't talk to Teru, being under suspicion again, there are going to be some inconsistencies, which Near and Mello will be sure to pick up on. However, Light is brilliant so I not sure exactly how it will work out yet. I'm got two volumes left in the series so certainly something will happen and soon. Looking forward to seeing how this concludes.

Excellent Deathnote hit a definite lull in some of the later volumes, but I'm happy to say that Vol. 10 is picking it back up. Light's back on his game, and excellent new character is introduced, and some of the supporting characters develop some backbone.

READ IN ENGLISH<br/><br/>I had completely deleted Mikami in my memory for some reason. Guess he deserved it. <br/><br/>The story is nearing its end, and you can feel it. Two more books to go. Brace yourself for the last and final battle...
