Yagami is getting darker and creepier by the second. L makes a good contrast to this latter with his endearing personality and appearance. This volume was VERY slow, but, as the previous ones, quite well thought of.

And we are briefly introduced to a new intriguing character. Volume four, here I come!

4.5 stars - Spoilers

-Liked this more than Volume 2. It was more engrossing and the battle of wits between L and Light was immensely entertaining.

-I didn't expect L to reveal himself to Light, it was a cool twist. I loved seeing them both trying to stay one step ahead of each other.

-The twist at the end was great. I was wondering how Kira/Light was killing off people without knowing their names - I really didn't see the second Kira thing coming at all.

-I'm glad the second Kira was a girl but I
I just finished it and I need time to comprehend what I've just read. This plot twist/cliff-hanger blew my mind.


Let's not forget the other plot twist that happened earlier in the volume. I just can not..


And L and Kira are going to...


Need to read the next volume ASAP

I really enjoy the battle of wit and will between Light and L., now pumped up a little with the two of them meeting face to face. A new character, another human with a Death Note, is introduced towards the end, somebody who did accept the shinigami eyes. Interested to see where this is going, especially since Light is starting to show some cracks around the edges.
With great power comes great… Evil?!

The second volume ends with Raito finding out that he was under surveillance due to L’s orders. Which meant he couldn’t directly write in the Death Note as he was sure to be seen by one of the 64(!) cameras placed in his room. L is pulling the net around Raito but there is a lot more to come. Raito doesn’t give up easily. He devises a brilliant plan to fool L and his own father. And Kira strikes again. But there is no suspicious activity that can connect Raito

L is actually a giant puppy and I want to cuddle with him.

İkinci yarı bu kadar iyi olmasaydı puanım 1,5 veya 2 olacaktı. O kadar -nasıl desem- tahminler üzerine kurulmuş olay örgüsü ve isterik karakterler barındırıyor ki sinirime dokunuyor. Tenis maçı yaparak Kira olup olmadığını anlamak? ananıskmdfşdgkfhglj

Wow! This is the third time I've read Death Note, and I still find the dynamic between L and Light completely exhilarating! They are like a perfect match set, two sides of the same coin, and their minds work in such perfect tandem. I was particularly enthralled during the tennis match, even though it was nothing but a back and forth, it was like they were reading each others minds, or operating on a higher mental plane than the rest of the world. I think a big part of the intensity of Death Note ...more
un tercer tomo con mucho juego mental entre los dos protagonistas en su juego de tira y afloja. Pero que en el último momento todo su juego se ve trastocado por alguien que no esperaban ninguno de los dos. Lo que le vuelve a dar un poco de vida a la historia

Más sobre mi opinión en la reseña del blog
Light da L de müthiş zeki ve okurken zekalarına hayran kaldım. Ancak birbirleri hakkında yürüttükleri fikirleri anlamakta zorlandım bazen ve bu biraz yorucu oldu benim için. Şimdilik en sevdiğim cilt 2. cilt oldu bakalım fikrim değişecek mi.
Elimde tek cilt kaldı ve cidden okumayı çok istiyorum ama bitsin istemiyorum da çünkü 2 ay kadar başka cilt alamayacağım sanırım :(

I was kinda hoping I would only get a few books into this series and get I do with pretty much all series books, since most sequels are totally worthless compared to the originals in my mind. This volume was AMAZING. L starts to really shine in this volume and Ryuk's character gets fleshed out in such a subtle way (wait can he even get "fleshed out" since he's a death demon?) So smart, so surprisingly funny at points, and with such an ending! My jaw was on the floor for like twenty mi ...more
Me encanta la guerra entre L y Kira, superan su capacidad intelectual con cada acción. Y no me acordaba del poder de Misa, tan tonta que parece; se pone cada vez mejor.
Neden elimde 4. 5. 6. 7....13. ciltler yok ki benim?

Crap! that plot twist!
Morgan Randall
This story is about a boy named Light Yagami who obtains the Death note of a God of Death (a Shinigami)named Ryuk. Writing the name of a person in the Death note causes that person to die, and Light decides to take advantage of this fact.

"The HUMAN whose name is written in this note shall die," but who will Light choose?

And can L, the infamous detective, stop him?

The thing that I really love about this story is that the main point of view is from the "bad guy," Light. This isn't a perspective th
This was was pretty intense! Quite a bit happens with L and Light and a new character is introduced. . . .

Complexity goes to a higher level again. Each volume increases the complexity of the story and it gets more interesting. I loved the part when L reveals himself to Light and also the tennis game. It makes me feel “Whoa” when I was reading it. I liked this volume compared to the previous one. A lot of twists and unexpected things happen in this story. What I loved most about this story is that the mangaka has added more complexity to an already complicated

I really enjoyed this third installment of the series. Seeing the battle of wits between Light and L was fun. Some of what Light is thinking as he tries to avoid capture is too complicated for my simple mind, but I can't deny that he is smart. Watching Light get transformed by the power is really interesting to watch, and a little scary.
L is an odd detective, but I like him.
The ending has me really interested for the next installment.
Overall, I really like this manga series and can't wait to see
Overall Rating: A++
Synopsis: A psychological/supernatural thriller created by writer Tsugumi Ohba and illustrator Takeshi Obata, Death Note follows a high school student, Light Yagami, who discovers the notebook of a shinigami that allows him to kill anyone by writing the victim's name while picturing his or her face. Light's goal is to create and lead a world cleansed of evil using the book, but where is the line between an honorable goal, and mass murder?

The note book has a series of instructi
My actual (read: intelligent) review of the entire series can be found here. This review will be mostly fangirling and hyperbole.

Oh, dear lord how I love this manga. The artwork was a little sub-par, but it's just so suspenseful! I still love that you can understand both Light and L's viewpoints, and sympathize with them both. That's not an easy thing to pull off, but man, Ohba is really good at it. And the characters are really, really interesting. Particularly L. Have I mentioned how much I lo

Pretty entertaining stuff. One of the most popular manga series of all time. Light/Kira and L have a battle of wits as Light uses his death notebook to kill more (bad?) people, but things turn darker with each volume. A twist at the end… is that a second? or fake? Kira, who emerges killing people… The dialogue is good, actually. Sharp exchanges. The complications of having a death god hanging around near the death notebook adds a crazy fantasy element.
4.5 stars.

Oh man. This is the best volume of the Death Note series so far! The plot was incredibly fast-paced from the get go, some very exciting events took place, and that ending. The plot and reasoning is so cleverly thought out, I commend Tsugumi Ohba for his incredible imagination!

I'll definitely be digging into the fourth instalment very soon.

"Death Note" ist so spannend, dass man es wirklich in null Komma nichts gelesen hat Obwohl Ryuk noch immer mein Liebling ist, finde ich L mittlerweile auch echt cool. Bin gespannt wie das Katz und Maus Spiel zwischen ihm und Light weitergeht :) ...more

“Kira is evil ... There's no denying that ... But lately I've been starting to think of it more like this ... The real evil is the power to kill people. Someone who finds himself with that power is cursed. No matter how you use it, anything obtained by killing people can never bring true happiness.” 17 likes
