An exciting start to a promising series. The pace of the series is so fast that it's difficult to talk about plot developments (for me!), so I'll just say generally that I'm enjoying the art and the plot. I'm a sucker for police procedurals and morally ambiguous characters, and this series has them in spades. Light starts out using the Death Note for positive reasons, and has some qualms about killing initially, but it doesn't take him long to start intellectualizing the process. I'm sure his motives are going to get murkier as this series progresses.

Loving the fast pace. At this rate I'm going to blow through the whole twelve volumes in about a week. I hope the author keeps it up and doesn't get sidetracked by romance (Light is turning out to be a calculating dude, so this seems unlikely). With the number of corpses piling up, I'm sure vengeance will figure into the plot eventually. Hope it's sooner rather than later! I love me a good revenge plot.
