Reason for Reading: Next in the seriesWow! This series just keeps getting better and better! The best volume so far. In this omnibus edition volumes 5 and 6 go together so well as they contain a mini story-arc. Both Light and Misa have temporarily given up their notebooks and had their memories erased all as part of Light's master plan to throw L.'s suspicion off of him, while at the same time Misa's book has been turned over to someone else and a group of 8 individuals at a Japanese corporation, knowing one of them, but not which one, is Kira, are using the power to kill off competitors and make their company's stocks and profits rise. That's all I'm going to say about the plot! These two volumes are really heavy on the mind games between L. and Light as they try to capture Kira. L. still believes Light is Kira. Even though Light no longer knows that he is, he has the intelligence to wonder if maybe he might have been and would he behave that way. Light without his power though is more able to ethically make decisions based on right and wrong. A spectacular story with an adrenaline-high race to the end. I could not put this volume down! I can't believe I'm half done the series now.
