I highly recommend this series, people who don't usually read manga can be interested in this series as well as the usual manga readers becuase Death Note brings up the question: What would I do if I found a Death Note and had the power to kill whoever I wanted? Not only that but the main character and the bad guy are the same person! But you get to watch and wonder if he will really get away with this or will someone be able to stop him?

Bravely marching forward towards the end of the series... but not there yet! Spoilers for those who haven't read this far, of course, blah blah blah...Another major turning point, not just for Light, but for Kira, Near, Mello, and the Japanese task force. The task force's last attempt to storm Mello and his mafia gang's hideout failed miserably, thanks to interference from shinigami Sidoh. But when Light's father, Soichiro, unexpectedly makes the deal with Ryuk for shinigami eyes, they're able to break into the hideout and corner Mello. But he isn't L's heir just because of his scary looks... Mello manages to escape, taking Soichiro out in the process. We discover that there's a spy for Mello in the SPK's midst (Near seems well aware of who it is). Mello and Near form a shaky partnership by sharing information and then separate to see who can catch Kira first and avenge L's death. The U.S. decides to take no action against Kira. Good old Demegawa of Sakura TV is proclaimed the spokesman of Kira, driving crowds into a frenzy as they hunt down those who would go against Kira (watch out SPK!). And Near sows seeds of mistrust (doesn't that sound fancy?) in the Japanese task force. WHEW!This was actually a pretty cool volume. Like I said in my last review, I really enjoy watching Mello because he seems best at catching Light off-guard. It's nice to have some emotion register for these characters - and it was sad to see Soichiro pass on. Watching Light at his father's side as he dies, you really understand the depths he's sunk to as Kira. Soichiro's last moments are spent being pressured by Light to write Mello's name in the Death Note, and he refuses. We also see that Kira has been accepted by several world powers and is becoming more and more revered by the people. You have to wonder, though, if a man like Demegawa has been chosen to be the voice of Kira, what sort of corruption will he bring to Light's ideals. Are there other people out there who feel like Matsuda needs to be slapped a few times? He's so trusting, it would be sad if it weren't so annoying.

Still going at it. This volume was interesting. It's still not at par with the first few volumes but the story seems to be coming to a head. Kira is getting closer to being found out. The suspense is fairly good here, it's keeping me turning the pages. While this series is not my favorite it's intriguing. I'm glad I'm reading them.
