    Ill give it a 9/10 becuase its strong beginning makes up for the abysmal end. ALso, it even managed to make a tennis game look exciting/tense! Something PoT has been unable to achieve. Furthermore, "L" is the 2nd best char made. Ever. 1st goes to Hiruma though ^^

    The ending was upsetting for me, though realistic. I was surprised, and, being a die hard Kira fan, a bit dissapointed.
    Yes.
    DN was a manga with only two important characters: L and Light.
    When L died the balance was broken. Near & Mello were just L wannabes.
    I really didn't care for the rest of the characters so after L death I continued reading DN because of Light. I hoped some kind of character development, but I saw none. I was really disappointed. And the story itself became repetitive.
    The ending was very common and kinda stupid (Light writing Near's name in front of everyone was foolish). It was a letdown.

    I'd probably give it a 4/5 too. Indeed after L died, it was repetitive and because of that, most of the middle of the second half was boring. I'm pretty much glad it ended, it kept going back and forth, back and forth. In the end, I didn't care which side won anymore. At first I rooted for L (because he's just one of the best characters ever), but he died.... And Near and Mello were just kind of... 'eh'.. Mm.. and that's my ten cents.

    He died. How much more did you want to see?


    Misa. How is it that people aren't getting that?

    And for my ratings...

    First Arc: 9/10
    First half of Second Arc: 6/10
    Second half of second Arc: 8/10
    Bout chapters 103-107: 9/10
    Final chapter: 5/10

    Overall, though, an awesome manga. Love it.

    Uhm Misa lost her memories of the Death Note, unless they announced that Raito was Kira she would have never made the connection that Kira was Raito of whom she loved. She also liked Kira we can not deny this fact but she loved Raito more. They did not give us enough information at the end to conclude that was Misa or not.

    If they did state that Kira was killed and that it was the young man Raito then the whole world, which saw Kira as a god, would have gone crazy, just like Raito had said. Near knew this and would not make that mistake. More people would have died as a result of that and that is not what he wanted.

    So they just let things go on with out Kira's judgements and eventually the world realized that Kira A. Must have died or B. Kira is on a vacation.

    Misa lost her memories of who Kira is and the Death Note. Unless she had a piece of it left she would not gain those memories back. She loved Kira yes, but she said that she loved Raito more. You would think that Misa would believe that Kira had judged Raito... and of course that would make her angry and not like Kira anymore so there would be no reason to start a cult about Kira, but we don't have enough information from that last chapter to conclude this or that she is Misa. That is why she is mysterious.

    If you're on chapter 20 you REALLY shouldn't be reading this.

    I really think the ending could have been a lot better. The plot was great but I dont believe I can believe in what Raito (Light) was doing. He really was "Just a murderer." If anyone reading this knows about Nietzche, you'd agree he failed as an overman. He created his own values to transcend "nihilism" driven by "will to power" yet failed because his resolve weakened and his methods weren't right. He showed no compassion. He didn't want everyone else to realize what he had realized, he wanted to control them for himself. Someone as selfish as that cannot deserve respect. Sorry Raito, I really did admire you in the beginning that you were doing what you believed in, but then you really, really messed up.

    Utopia isn't possible, and to try to realize it is to kill the free thinkers and drive us deeper into a prejudiced and uninformed existence. Besides you had absolutely no right to impose your insane values on others who possessed the same ability as you, free will. You insane bastard, you deserved a far worse end.

    Obata wanted to entertain an idea and he did it perfectly, but I think we're better off philosophising about life with other literature like "Crime and Punishment" (better story btw, even more exciting and sadder). Fantastic art. I highly recommend "Yakitate! Japan" and "Hana Kimi" for art and humor.
