Things are getting insane, and I LOVE IT! I have no clue where this story is going to go, and I can't wait to see where it takes me :)

"كيرا شيطان..لاجدال في ذلك..ولكني مؤخرا بدأت أري بوضوح أن الشيطان الحقيقي هو القدرة علي قتل البشر.. الشخص الذي يمتلك تلك القدرة هو ملعونا بها
مهما استخدمها هذا الشخص لا يمكن بقتل البشر تحقيق اي سعادة حقيقية"

لقد حذره ملك الموت 'الشيجامي' المرافق له أن من يرافقه شيجامي هو شخص سيئ الحظ من قبل

Final rating: 3.5/3.75 stars

I think I liked it less than volume 1. I mean, Light and L's rivarly is really pure gold, but this one has some flaws.

First: it's sexist. Yes, even volume 1 was, but in this case we reached whole new levels. In my review of Vol.1 - which contains the first 2 volumes actually - I complained because there wasn't a good female character. Nor an important one. Well, it seems like my wish was answered and destroyed at the same time. Misa is the silliest character ever. All

"I've never once considered finding that notebook and gaining this power a misfortune. In fact, it's made me happier than I've ever been. And I'm going to create a perfect world."
Death Note is a rollercoaster ride. Seeing as the foundations for the story's world had already been made in the first volume, in the second volume many complex details and properties of the Death Note and the Shinigami are brought to light (there's a very intentional pun in here :p).

Oh how I love these books and this story. The logic gets more and more twisted and convoluted but I just think its so funny. These two "boys" (Light and L) making things more and more complicated for no other reason than their own weird logic. Things certainly get moving a lot more in this volume and again the anime has pretty much followed word for word, which I think is great. I look forward to continuing with the series.

The plot thickens! Although the introduction of a new villain is an old trick in the manga world, Misa is so different a villain that we can't help but wonder about her. And her relationship with Rem is bizarrely intimate compared to the bond between Light and Ryuk.
Is it bad that I found Light's manipulation of Misa... kind of cool? I know! I know! It's a horrible thing to do to a girl, but it's so true to his character, that I couldn't help but admire it.
That's one thing

Also this part hurt a little.

It's not your fault your first friend is a manipulative murdering asshole babe. Hold on there.
These are just so amazing. They keep getting better and better!!

This series just gets better and better. Still wonderfully drawn (even if it does play on the quirkiness of L a little too much for my liking) and still with a plot which is far more ethereal and intricate than you would anticipate. There is very little action in here but lots and lots of exposition and even more micro manoeuvring with detailed consideration of the most minor comments and actions.

It shouldn't work, especially not in comic form, and yet it does. The twists and turns are great and

Wow! This one was crazy! It was so much more intense than the first book. I found it unusual just how easily Kira lost his calm and control when Pembro's fiancé came into the picture and was close to exposing him. It shows just how obsessed he has become with killing.
Jan 25, 2015 Lamar rated it it was amazing  ·  review of another edition
The plot just keeps getting thicker and thicker, I love it.
I'm absolutely on Light's side, I just love how he's so determined and undaunted. And I sure hope that's not the end of Misa, I mean she's stupid but bright enough.
Things lulled for a bit in this volume but still five stars.

There's no doubt about it, this book was just as good as the first one! I just couldn't stop reading it! Whenever I had to stop I just wanted to pick it up again - so exited to find out what's going to happen next...
The new character, Misa is such a great little character :)
3.5 out of 5
The story is as good as in the previous volume, but the sexist portrayal of female characters bothered me a little.

The story is really good but this volume let me down. Hard.

You have no idea how much I wanted to give this 5 stars. This was a lot more interesting than the first volume and kept me a lot more interested, however, I had a huge issue with the main female character in this one.
Misa (the main female character) literally said "use me". She was there only to promote Kira's/Light's storyline and nothing more. She was portrayed as this stupid little girl who makes all these mistakes and all she cares

De los mejores momentos de este tomo son sin duda cuando L y Light se conocen y cuando cada uno empieza a hacer sus jugadas para irse midiendo. Cada uno de esos momentos son increíbles.
Los dos son personajes muy geniales y aunque Light pudiese tener algunos puntos de ventaja es increíble la manera en que L en ningún momento deja que él tome distancia y tome la ventaja. Cuando parece que las cosas están a favor de alguien, el otro hace su jugada y vuelven a quedar a la par. Sin duda este estira y

I think it's pretty safe to conclude that the main character -- anti-hero protagonist Light Yagami -- is an absolute arsehole. Whether I should like Light or not no longer appears to be ambiguous and it has become quite clear that Light is the true villain of his own story. I am passionately hoping he gets his comeuppance. He is an arrogant, selfish, pompous, sexist womanising bastard. Any noble purpose he might have had when he first laid hands on the Death Note have now evaporated as he desper ...more

As the story continues, we get deeper into the mastermind hiding behind Light/Kira.
Things get crazy and so complicated that nothing can be predicted.

Whoever thought of this story, is a genius himself. I mean, it's so well written and so greatly put together that it seems like you're really into the story.

I know the ending, but still, i get that heartache for both Kira and L. The illustrations, even black and white, are so cool!

I thought things were ''going down'' in the first two volumes. But I never knew that in this book (volumes 3&4) things could get any more serious than they already were. And the cliffhanger at the end of volume 4 is a killer, Tsugumi Ohba - why do you do this? WHY!?

Goshdangit, I was so determined to finish before Maggie. Ah well, I procrastinated. For 3 months.
Every time I crack open a volume of Death Note, it blows my mind. I'm pretty sure it'll always be in my Top 10 manga.
