Great manga! Neat story, good art.

An over-achieving college-bound student named Light Yagami picks up a supernatural book used by Shinigami to kill people. Plots unfold and as the action begins, a mysterious character going by the alias 'L' pursues Light on his goal to rid the world of criminals. Consider it the extremist objective of sociopaths, but whether or not the main character is a psycho, the story has beautiful artwork and a catching storyline.

I was expecting more with all the raves about this book but it wasn't that impressive. Just wildly popular. The story is about Light who finds a notebook left by a god of death. If you write a name in the book the person will die. Light decides to use this book to kill all the "bad" people and make the world a better place. I was surprised how quickly a 17 year old decides its a good idea to kill a bunch of people. Pretty bad characterization and translation/writing. Cool idea that was badly executed.
