Around The Year in 52 Books Challenge #36 - A book about a different culture/religion/sexuality
As before this is a densely written thriller with continuous twists and turns that you need to focus on in order to keep apace with all of them. As before it eschews the action and violence for a far more ethereal and thoughtful experience.
The bravery of th ...more
The ending of this one was so good, (especially Volume 6), but I found I missed Light being Kira a lot? like I definitely liked the plot of him giving up his deathnote to escape the police ...more
Light and Misa lose their whole memories regarding the Death Notes after being taken into custody by L. But was this all part of Light's plan? Meanwhile, an entire company seems to have gained the powers Light and Misa once had. L tries to plan Light's innocence so he can put him on the case to finding out who this next person with the powers is. Light coo ...more
In this installment, Light gives up ownership of the Death Note in order to forget everything about it, and be truly honest in his attempts at convincing "L" that he is not Kira. In the meantime, the shinnigami that hunted Misa-Misa gives her Death note to a corrupt & ambitious businessman in order to deflect suspicion away from Misa-Misa. "L" ends up believing that both Light and Misa-Misa are innocent of being Kira & Kira 2, though he suspects that ...more
Death Note is without a doubt one of those mangas that practically everyone has at least heard about. No wonder too, the story is interesting and attention-catching. The plot is centered on Light Yagami, who finds a notebook with which he can kill people by writing their names on it, and the police investigation that attempts to put an end to his criminal killing and bring him to justice. It is deep, interesting, with a well-developed plot, and absolutely memorab ...more
Another thing that is brilliant about this arc is the fact that though intelli ...more
La mayor parte de la historia es un poco más lenta en comparación con los tomos anteriores puesto que en esta parte trata del arco de la Yotsuba y este nuevo Kira.
Se me ha hecho muy larga y algo extensa ya que el ritmo es diferente, todo se centra en investigar, observar y sacar algunas conclusiones pero sin duda hay momentos interesantes entre L, Light y Misa.
En ningún momento L deja de sospechar de Light, las deducciones y lo sumamente observador que es para todos los detalles es genial.
El pró ...more
En mi opinión este volumen decae un poco en cuanto al anterior ya que es más monótono y hay partes bastante lentas aunque con un final súper impactante y que te mantiene en vilo durante las últimas páginas. Sigue teniendo una trama muy afilada e inteligente a la que me enganché en seguida y me mantuvo interesada todo el rato. Los personas siguen siendo para mí un punto fuerte. Ya no sólo por Light y L, quienes tienen un ingenio y agudeza impresionant ...more
Wow! 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 ...more
The previous book ended with a rather shocking and mysterious (and with that I mean it isn't explained) plot-twist. Naturally, I opened the next book burning with the desire to find out what the heck just happened. I read. And read. And fucking read.
Now the last page is turned, and you know what? I STILL DON'T KNOW WHAT THE FUCK HAPPENED.
It does not create suspense. It does not make me especially eager to read the next book. What it makes me do is plug my laptop in, ...more
Okay, so, most of this book was boring to me, if we're gonna be honest, but all was solved in the end and it was all redeemed. I have the rest of the series, now, so I'm able to hop right into Volume IV.
HOWEVER, I need to read more Crown of Midnight. I just need to. So Death Note IV must wait!
There is speculation th ...more
