I was a little freaked out by this series at first. Seriously, how many other series dare to make the protagonist a psycho? But that's what's great about Deathnote. You never really know who the good guy is. This volume is the best so far. I loved Misa's character design, and while alot of people I know hated the dialogue between L and Raito, I found it really thought provoking. The Ohba-san is brilliant in that he can keep your attention, while at the same time using a medium that generally relies on illustrations. He and Obata together are a total dream team. I'm also in love with Misa's character design she pulls of goth where most other series merely have you looking at some cliched lolita girl. I reccommend this series to anyone who likes to think.

Four Love is THE BEST MANGA I EVER READ! Misa Amane and Light are great and the thrill keeps u're eyes glued to the page of manga! This is the best Deathnote yet! Misa Amane is a second kira with a Shinigami named Rem, and loves Light because he is kira and she adores him! The end is brillant with Miss getting captured and Light giving up his deathnote!

Once again, Death Note takes new twists and turns, but no prior volume has been this drastic; the plot re-shapes and characters are growing more complex, especially since volume 3. This is shaping up for massive drama. The art is near-impeccable as far as I've discovered manga, as related to the western graphic novels I've read much of previously.

The last volume ended with a bit of a cliffhanger... someone besides Light possesses a Death Note and has made the deal for shinigami eyes. This second Kira is eager to meet the original, and L and the task force hope to intercept copycat before Kira can. Of course, Light is still active on the task force. When the second Kira reveals herself (gasp!) to Light, he must decide how best to use her and her shinigami.Okay, so getting down to specifics, Misa (the second Kira) reveals herself to the police and then Light, confessing her love for him. She not quite what anyone expected. Compared to super geniuses (Wile E. Coyote-style) like Light and L, Misa isn't nearly as clever, but she's no dummy. She's unpredictable as well, being much more emotional than Light, and having the power of shinigami eyes. Her shinigami, Rem, is the complete opposite of Ryuk - forthcoming, patient, caring, and protective. Light isn't prepared to handle this curveball, and we see him acting more and more on the defensive.Still, you can't help but feel that L is also struggling with the investigation. There's an interesting exchange between L and Light, where they talk about being friends. While you know that Light is just playing a part, you do feel for L, who seems lonely. He also contemplates his own mortality, knowing that he should concentrate on what he can do instead of letting the fear of death control him. I think this volume's shift in focus - away from Light and Ryuk and on to L, Misa and Rem - was effective. While L has grown on me over the past three volumes, I liked Misa and Rem almost right away. Perhaps it's that they aren't as calculating as the other characters, but rather plain about their feelings. I'm looking forward to the next volume, especially after this new cliffhanger.

We are definitely back on track with this edition to the deathnote series after a rather lacklustre 3rd book. Misa is a great character to add to the series and the plot gets better and beter once Light and Misa meet. I found myself laughing out loud at some of Misa's crazy actions. I was dipping a little with my enthusiasm for this series but this one has definitely spurred me on to read number 5!

The Manga is great for the Nook, though it was put in the wrong way compared to the first few volumes making it go from left to right rather then from right to left.
