Okay time to talk to you about this!!Originally Posted by slocik
It wasnt stupid in fact it might have worked if it wasnt for mikami throwing a wrench into the works with that bank thing like someone has been saying. But then they couldnt convince everyone that yagami raito was kira, that and they wouldnt have any evidence to put him away for good or anything and they couldnt kill mikami either without good reason "He was writing down our names" isnt a good reason. and light said himself he wouldnt take the god of deaths eyes because he would want to see his version of the world to its entirety meaning he wouldnt lower his lifespan just because he wanted to get the names of 4-6 people.. hes clever enough to get their names... i mean think about it he killed L!!! why wouldnt he be able to do the same to Near? i mean sure he used someone to kill L but same deal. And raito would want to win by using the death note on near otherwise its the same as raito admitting defeat to near... he wouldnt use a gun to kill him nor would he want to. And the only god of death he had around was ryuuku and he never really cooperates at all... hes stubborn.... and seriously raito loves his life too much to end it so he wasnt going to kill himself if anything he would have dropped everyone in the room and left before he let anyone kill him.
He was in a corner man what did you expect? hes gone mentally insane from killing all those people and its obvious in the way he changed. Compare raito in high school to raito near the end and you'll see he lost that sharpness he once had. It because he wanted proof you idiot!!! dont you pay attention? he said he wanted mikami to do it so that would have solid proof against mikami and raito and that would go against raito because he is kira. and they got that evidence didnt they? and seriously dude he didnt have any out of character knowledge meaning all he could do was guess besides thats what being a detective is all about guessing something and hoping to be correct. Its sorta like a game of chess you have to be two moves ahead of the opponent. And near was kind of clueless at first as to who L thought kira was and all that but im pretty sure he had a way to find out about the kira thing perhaps L sent it in a report to them? knowing something bad may happen? its a possibility but its not impossible plus alot of places probably had information on kira cause hes killed criminals all over the world!! why wouldnt they know something? and mikami lost it!! insane + overconfidence = raitos loss
And so what if he was? if he killed near that would be the same as admitting defeat same deal with raito but with mello. and it was okay.... not genius but it would have worked....and it actually did so what says you? and? he knew from the start that would most likely happen and he had counted on it... doesnt seem to matter to him now does it? and they were more like aquintances or partners to him not anything like friends....maybe more like hired help... and mello is smarter then the average dumbass so im sure he found a way to escape i mean hes not as clever or smart as L, raito, or Near but hes smarter then the average person. and it wasnt stupid i liked the way it ended both plans were clever but near came out in the end. Raito was like that because he became too overconfident and thought too little of near... near was alot smarter then he let on and underestimating near was raitos biggest mistake and he payed for it. And no one became stupid they either became too confident or your just too stupid to understand just how smart the plans were
