bookshelves: graphic-novel, read-2016

HEEEEELP MEEEEEE I HAVE LIKE 7 ANXIETIES ABOUT THIS SERIES. No wait. I have nine anxieties. Seriously I am so stressed out right now. AH. AH. AH.


So Vol #4 was filled with many new plot twists that TOTALLY threw me. I honestly cannot predict what is going to go down next. And is it bad that I'm kind of devastated that Light (view spoiler) My brain is spinning. Ahem.


• I liked that this one focused more on Light (which is fair because Vol #3 was more about "L".)
• I really didn't like the introduction of Misa, the second Kira. Like, ugh, it was just "here let's throw in a girl who has no motivations or life or anything except a CRUSH ON A BOY". It was really insulting for girls all over the universe actually.
• So while Misa was cute, she had no complex character development. CONFUSING. Because all the other characters are so epic.
• Hmph.
• And I was so stressed out in this one because AHHH the heat is really turned up high.
• Also "L" doesn't sleep.
• And he exists on donuts and tea, apparently. But dude, you need a nap eventually, right?
• Why is Light's hair so fantastic? IT JUST IS.
• (It's so hard to even semi-review these books without spoilers.)
• Basically this one leaves me craving the next book quite severely badly. I have NO IDEA WHAT'LL HAPPEN NEXT.
• I also am liking how we get to know more about the shinigami (god of death) and all the rules around the Death Note too. Things got a little more complicated here, and it's interesting to know the shinigami's weaknesses.
• Also I love the art and expressions. IT'S LIKE READING A MOVIE.
• Okay goodbye now. I need to go devour mooooore.

This one is definitely my least favourite because of the terrible introduction of a semi-love-interest, but is also STILL AMAZING because it's so compelling and the twisty.

Oh, I cannot WAIT to see how your thoughts end up.

I'mogén I'm glad you like it! This series is so intricate and intense and I can't wait to see what you think about the rest of the manga.

I'mogén oh, don't forget to check out the 2 light novels after; L changes the world and Another Note

C.G. Drews @Charley: I can't wait either. XD I just want to DEVOUR THEM ALL IN ONE SITTING.

@I'mogen: Ahhhh I can't wait to read them all! :D

message 5: by Darnia (new)

Darnia Avoid any review for this one before you finish the whole series. The twists would blow your mind even more. I can guaranteed :)

C.G. Drews @Darnia: Excellent advice. XD So far I'm not reading other's reviews, ehehh.

message 7: by Katie (new)

Katie  Hanna WHY THE POINTLESS LOVE INTEREST. WHY. Seriously, it's so annoying when authors do that. (SO glad you're enjoying the series as a whole so much, though :-) )

Unpopular opinion alert! I actually like Misa. That said, "L" is my favourite character. ;)

C.G. Drews @Jessica: I KNOW. ;_; It was so sexist how she was introduced and her character portrayal the whole time. The series is male-orientated, fine, but when they DO bring in a female it just sexualises them as shallow love-interests???? #no
