    Default Death Note Anime ending [spoiler?]

    what did people think of the anime ending ? i thought it was pretty well-done.. they kept all the explanation to a minimum. mikami killing himself with a pen was kinda... random though. but i guess they needed to wrap up mikami's and misa's deaths.

    i'm sorta glad they didn't let Light die in pitiful way (like in the manga)

    The ending is bad.
    I really hate it and if i only can, i would kill it's creator with no mercy.
    The author of manga/anime made Light lose the final battle, because:

    1) Both Light and Tanaka had the secret piece of DN. Why didn't Mikami gain it? It's absolutely illogical. And what is more, it were 24 days for Light to make an "extra shot" to his plan, just in case. Even little boy'll do it.

    2) Both Light and Mikami knew, that they had been watched by Near. How could Mikami be so dumb and naive to leave real DN at the bank, even without taking any piece of it, after his "emergency sally"?

    3) Why didn't Mikami check DN on his way to the warehouse? It's the first rule of every important deed! I'm sure, Light must tell Tanaka about this in his instructions.

    Short summary of 3 points: Mikami and Light are brainless FAKES in the last 3-2 episodes.
    So, the real ending must be next:
    Mikami writes down the names both in "false" DN and secret piece of real DN without any conditions, except for Near - he must die after 5-10 minutes. Mass heart attacks, Light's fiendish laugh, nice "chat" with stunned Nate River (about plans), N's pathetic death and total victory of Kira!!! Happy end.

    He bled like that with a PEN!? Jesus Christ. That makes it even more random than I thought.

    Anyway, I loved how the episode was animated, and the visual abstraction felt much less vestigial than when L died. I didn't like the alternate ending, though; while it was much more entertaining than having Light crawl around and scream for 10 minutes, I felt like he got off easy by dying so peacefully. The fact that Light's death was so pathetic was the only redeeming point of the original ending, and their taking that part out vastly diminished it's impact.

    I mean, seriously. Light had probably caused the deaths of thousands of people by the end of the series, and he wasn't remorseful about 99.9% of them. So it makes no fucking sense that his very last moments were as peaceful as L's. I'm sure they changed it because Light fans thought it was a slap in the face, due to how terribly the ending was set up, but if the original ending had been like that then I would've hated the entire series.

    did you see the fake manga ending? you can find it on google, just type in "death note fake ending" and you'll find it. Anyways, in the fake one light goes to the shinigami world and makes a deal with the shinigami King.

    I would have liked that fake one SO much better than the originial one. the ORIGINAL ending i had several problems with because it was obviously the biggest editorial tampering ever, and Light and Mikami were portrayed very pathetically without any plan B. It was totally OOC of how smart Light was in the beginning.


    ANYWAAAAAYS, back to the anime...much to my surprise, it ended differently from the manga!! well, he did die, but not as pathetically. I was surprised by that, because usually the anime sticks to the manga like no other.
    i liked how it ended in the anime. better than manga.

    the way Light died....reminiscent of how L died?

    Is the Fake ending the original author wrote or was it fan-made?

    So much things to comment on in this thread already, I should start right away with that, but first i'll give my thoughts on the final ep.

    My first reaction was, "WTF?!". Light's death wasn't as pathetic as it was in the manga, and that was the high point of the great ending. But in looking back, the final few minutes of the anime had a kind of weird, serene beauty to them, with a "heavenly" light beaming down on Light and Mikami, and Light being confronted by L's ghost. I don't like Light's character at all, but way back at the beginning when he first got the DN you could say that he honestly had good, if naive intentions of making the world a better place, and perhaps the anime ending better reflected that. By the end though, he was utterly evil, and I wouldn't have been angry in the least if the original ending made it into the anime. But all in all, I did rather like those final few minutes of the anime.



    As far as the other aspects of the final ep, I really like the work Light's voice actor put in, making him sound equal parts menacing and pathetic-like. The animation was nice as well, and though this probably didn't register for anyone else, I didn't like how in the manga Near seemingly disrespected Aizawa as far as not really including the Japanese team in his plan, but near the end of the final ep Near tells Aizawa not to follow Light, but Aizawa flat out refuses. It's minor, but I liked that. However, I must take issue with the exclusion of the final chapter of the manga from the anime, where Matsuda gave his all but true theory about Near writing Mikami's name in the DN to ensure that his plan to prove Light was Kira worked. Without that, Mikami looks like an unhinged psycho for no apparent reason, as well as appearing to be uncharacteristically careless as far as not testing the DN before he went to the warehouse. This kinda makes the anime seem incomplete; I hope that an OVA or something could be made to rectify this.

    1)Light could not fathom that his plan would fail, provided Mikami didnt make any unneccessary moves, him being the methodical person he was. And only really Light had something like a hidden piece of DN on him; Takada only had DN pages at Light's behest.

    2)The DN was safe at the bank up until Mikami made the error of going to the bank 2 straight days, extremely out of character for someone like him. Remember, Near himself said that up until that point, Mikami had him fooled with the fake DN he was carrying.

    3)Like I said before, in the final chapter of the manga Matsuda tells his theory of Near writing Mikami's name in the DN in order to make sure Mikami didn't test the DN, or to ensure that he would show up and write the names as per Near's plan.

    Mikami writes down the names both in "false" DN and secret piece of real DN without any conditions, except for Near - he must die after 5-10 minutes. Mass heart attacks, Light's fiendish laugh, nice "chat" with stunned Nate River (about plans), N's pathetic death and total victory of Kira!!! Happy end.
    No, utterly lame crap end.

    I did like the second movie's ending, but something you should know: NEAR IS GOD. Mello is cool as well.

    LOL, I thought the same thing, He must've hit an artery or something.

    I totally feel you on Light deserving the pathetic end he got in the manga, but I very much liked how the anime ended. I mean, in the end Light did die, and he more or less suffered just like he did in the manga (in a way, Light came off as more pathetic in the anime, as after Matsuda shoots him and he writhes around on the floor he thinks to himself, "What do I do? It hurts..."). Though if push came to shove, i'd take the manga ending over the anime.

    That's speculation at best. Yeah, some editor was quoted saying something about having DN end with Light getting what he deserved, but if the issue you have with the ending is that the ending was crappy, that's an issue you ought to take up the writer of DN. Just because they might have been under some editorial mandate to make the ending Light's comeuppance, doesn't mean the ending had to be the crap you perceived it to be. The ending was great btw. And as far as Light and Mikami acting out of character, Light is so not the person he was at the beginning of the series; he is utterly evil and suffering from a major god complex. His plan at the end would have 100% worked, Near said it himself if not for Mikami's screw up Light would have won. As for Mikami's behavior, clearly Matsuda's theory about Near writing Mikami's name into the DN had to be true; only way to explain Mikami's behavior and the fact that he didn't check the DN before he left for the warehouse.
