    Default The fate of one who uses the death note

    I didn't really care for what Ryuuku said about what happens to a person when they die at the end of the series, to me what he said at the beginning was good enough, to paraphrase, someone who uses the death not will not meet the same fate as a normal human in death. It was good enough of a twist that it could get you to think about what he meant without giving too much away. To me the end ruined that train thought while at the same time trying to be depressing on the part of the reader.

    So tell me, as far as ideals go, what would you have preferred to happen to a death note user when they die? Under the grounds that something different indeed would happen.

    For me allot of the cover art got too many ideas in my head on just what might happen to a death note user in death for me to ignore them, especially the one with Light carrying a scythe,
    with Ryuuku and other Shinigami following behind.

    I've heard too many people already say things like "Light should have become a shinigami." If a human could become a shinigami it would present a lot of problems. The shinigami are completely detached, bored even, and so they don't have personal agendas. They just kill to survive. If Light became a shinigami he'd exact his revenge with his unlimited power. Death Note would be a pretty boring story if Kira was a supernatural being with no fear of being stopped.

    Personally I think the reality of death in Death Note worked out perfectly. It's like saying that no matter what you did in life, everybody dies, and then none of it matters anymore.

    I agree...

    well what if Light would just become a shinigami only if all of his memory, when he was living as a human being would erased.

    Then in almost all ways imaginable, he wouldn't be Light anymore.

    .

    what are you talking about? maybe i didn't gat your point here...
    but i am quite sure ryuuk said that someone who uses the death note will meet the exact same fate as any other human after death.
