This volume was full of surprises! L is definitely not as I expected…

Ryuuku and his apples, so so cute. And the main character agrees! ‘‘Thanks, Ryuuku. Unlike humans, you gods of death are rather cute.’’ Hahahahha!

I never thought Yagami could get like this, but I must admit that I’m very intrigued and can’t wait to know how long he’ll keep pulling everything off.

OH THAT WAS SO GOOD. These books honestly remind me of like a Sherlock/Moriarty thing going on and I'm 10000% sure that's why I'm enjoying them so much. If, well, Moriarty was a Japanese teenager and Sherlock had manners. Ahem. Moving forward.

I'm actually not sure how to review manga??? So I'm just going to list some things I particularly enjoyed in this volume.


• The art, as always, is A+
• We get WAY more of "L" in this book...and he's like this detective recluse who's a bit odd,

The plot development in this Manga series has far surpassed my expectations. I still find it phenomenal that so much has been packed into so little text! Tsugumi Ohba, you have me in awe!

This is the second volume in the Death Note series and continues following the story of teenager, Light Yagami, who is the current owner of the Death Note - a magical notebook that can be used to kill all those whose names are written within the pages. He also inherits a Shinigami death god as his accomplice unt

Manga okumamıştım daha önce, Karşıyaka'daki çizgi romancı kapalı olunca başka yerden manga alayım bari dedim. Eşek gibi 12 saat çalışmaktan vakit kalmadığı için bu tarz çabuk okunan şeyler okumak motive ediyor.

Hoştu tamam da Penny Dreadful'un 2. sezonundaki her bölüm gibi çok ani bitiyor sanki. Bir tane mantık hatası yakaladım ayrıca bu ikinci kitapta ama hatırlamıyorum şu an dasfdgfhg
Karakterleri sevmedim. Light'ın ilk başlarda düşüncesi güzeldi ama sonra yoldan şaştı. Töbeler olsun dedim.

Just kidding.The story and the characters develop a lot and it's nice to see some cool supporting characters.There are a lot of twists and great lines which got me thinking a lot.Also,this is probably my favourite Death Note video because he sounds like a dying horse(also,the Spanish and Korean version just crack me up).Just thought you should know this.Bye.

The obsession is real at this point. Found Naomi quite annoying though. Quite enjoying L if ya catch my drift. If you haven't started on this series yet then what are you waiting on.
I'm so addicted to this. It keeps getting more and more intense. Although I admire both boys for their intelligence I have to say that I'm team "L". He is weird, whereas Kira is more the antihero or something like that. I am eager to know what he will do next but I cannot approve his actions.

Aunque este tomo se me hizo algo lento, me mantuvo intrigado en la trama.

¿Para que leer Death Note Unión?

1. Por que la trama se enreda más y las muertes y juegos policíacos, se vuelven más drásticos y meticulosos que dejan con ganas de seguir leyendo.
2. Los lazos de unión que unen a los personajes son creíbles, familia, amigos, profesiones, romances.
3. L, tiene un papel principal en este tomo y nos revela algo impactante.
4. Conocemos más características de esta libreta de la muerte.

4/5 Stars

In this second installment, Light Yagami has continued his plight to rid the world of crime and criminals. However, now that the American FBI is working with his homeland government, what lengths will he go to in order to hide his identity? Is Light becoming even more out of control. Tag along as this story gets even darker and more twisted as Light and his Shinigami friend travel even further down the rabbit hole.

I’m really glad that I started this series. Although it’s not quite a 5-s
The cliffhanger at the end of the first volume was too much for me. So, I had to jump into the next one as soon as was possible. Off to volume 2!

The story opens where the first volume left off. A failed bus-jacking leads to Raito getting to know the name of the FBI agent who was following him. That leads to him uncovering the identity of all the other agents posted in Japan. He puts this information to use and forwards it as a challenge for L.

There’s the addition of a woman in the game. She is t

Tak to bylo něco! Nevím komu mám fandit víc.
Fast-paced and exciting! Only wish there were more female characters.. I mean, Naomi was good but she is gone now(( And I loved L! Such an eccentric guy))) Raito is becoming boring and hateful. I liked Ryuuku, however.

Pretty good but not quite as engrossing as volume 1. It was more slower paced and there didn't seem to be a whole lot of development - Light was still killing people, L was still trying to catch him out, people were still wondering WTF was going on.

I didn't find Light as interesting either. I liked that he had an agenda and purpose in the first one — he wanted to only kill criminals (for the supposed sake of justice and creating a better world) but in this one he was too high on power a

#JapaneseJune Book #6.

The tension is really amped up in this volume, and it's only the second installment to the series! Light is treading on thin ice as L puts together a special investigation unit and ups his suspect surveillance. Not only that, but he has the girlfriend of a victim sticking her nose into his business at the same time. Sometimes I have to wonder how he manages to remain to calm and collected - I don't know if I like him as a person but as a character he's incredibly intriguing

Ryuk is the main reason for 5 stars. Don't get me wrong, I love the series and I love watching these geniuses play a cat and mouse game. However, Ryuk is the best neutral character ever. He literally serves no purpose but to entertain us.

I really find the way that this story twists and turns so fascinating! I still can't quite figure out where it's going to go or who I want to succeed.

Things get even darker in this second volume, and it's so hard to decide whose side I'm really on! We get to actually meet L in this one - he's a bit strange (very young for a brilliant detective) but also incredibly intriguing. I loved seeing L and Light trying to outsmart each other - each thinking that they're getting the upper hand, but neither quite actually managing to do it. L is definitely getting closer to figuring out who Kira really is, though.

This volume also gives us a new adversary

Volume 2 picks up right where Volume 1 left off, with Light testing his abilities with the Death Note and trying to cover his own butt.

We get to see more L in this volume, including his face! and we start to understand more of his motives and character.

There’s also a pretty cool female character introduced, which is always nice to see.

Overall, the volume is basically Light trying to gather how much knowledge his adversaries have about Kira and an extenuation of the Battle of Intelligence betw

We really meet L. in volume two, and he's a very interesting character. Twitchy, brilliant, unnerving, commanding. Very much like Light himself. He makes a good foil for him. This volume also brings in the very cool Naomi. (view spoiler) The stakes are raised, and it seems like L. is closing in on Light. Pretty tense in places, it left me very eager to read the next volume.
Feb 17, 2014 Michael rated it it was amazing  ·  review of another edition
After the nail-biting end to volume one I launched straight into two! The book just doesn't let up, it's always fast, edgy, smart and great writing that is seriously addictive, coupled with the excellent drawings I think I may be a serious convert to manga. It's such a refreshing difference sometimes from full-length, 'heavy' fantasy novels I'm so use to reading.
L and Light, clever as can be! They play an interesting game.
The second volume was better than the first if I must say.
Light shows how smart he is. L deduces quicker. The intensity will have you on the edge of your chair!
I knew what was going to happen because I have seen the anime but this still had my heart racing!
So good!

So this is my second post for my reviews on the manga genre and I have to say that I am liking it. This is my first manga that I am reading and I am pretty excited of what I have been reading so far. Death Note is definitely personifying its name in the story and I am literally on my toes wanting to know what will happen next.

The story continues with Light in possession of the Death Note but now with FBI agents on the watch and L getting closer and closer, Light needs to do something that he nev
