    I read the last few chapters as a reminder because I already have the 9th volume. The only thing that stands out is that Light Yagami has become a pansy. That's right, I said it! Ever since what happened with L in the last volume, and the years that have passed, Light has gotten soft a...

    Girl, I hate Mello. I suffer misophonia and even seeing photos of that guy licking and chewing on chocolate bars nonstop makes me want to choke someone. Uggghhh. ...

    - I miss L. Things just aren't the same without him. - Mello looks like a girl! I thought it was a girl for a while. He is also pretty deranged and creepy. - Light is such an arrogant jerk! Why is he using everyone like this? Does he have no morals? - Misa is SO dumb! Can't sh...

    Mello! Look at him in his chocolate glory! Another character that you really just want to hug but know that he'd shoot your head off if you even got within a foot of his chocolate bar. The characters in these books are amazingly corny, all with their own odd habits. Whether that be eat...

    This book just isn't as interesting as the others. For one thing every single character (including the new shinigami) uses Light's circular reasoning, which is really confusing and delays progress. Despite the bulk of the volume no progress was made in the search, although I'm not quit...

    I'm enjoying this series, although at times the events can get a little hokey. You can tell, at times, that the creators may not know the larger context of certain aspects of their narrative world, such as behavior and customs in the U.S. Still, intriguing, and I want to go through to ...

    Another good one in the series. I suppose I think it could move a bit faster and have more action but that's a minor point. I enjoyed it. ...

    3.5 stars -Light was a stone cold bastard. He didn't have any loving or kind feelings whatsoever, at least early in the series he seemed to care for his family and genuinely wanted to make the world a better place. He was no longer like that, he was willing to kill Sayu, his dad, an...

    Another gripping instalment to this unique series. This one sees Light struggling to fight against two separate adversaries who both want the death note. And as both are L?s protgs and therefore, genius masterminds, it?s not easy for Light. Again, like volume 7, this series ...

    4.5 stars Right. So after everything that happened with L and my pitiful bawling I had to take a break from Death Note and just cool off a little. And picking it up again? Well ... First and foremost - lets talk about Mello. Why the hell is his name Mello? He's anything but fuc...

    Light is cold, man, cold. Especially to the ladies. There's poor misguided Misa (Hell no did Light just speak to her like that!) ? she really needs to get out of there. And then lil sis Sayu, whose brother is mercilessly contemplating killing her off, just so he can have an easier...

    So Rem's a female and Mellow's a male..?! There's some serious mismangement with this manga :p Anyway, Light's going universal, our ruthless Light. That Mellow is annoying >.< I MISS L SO MUCH!! T.T T.T T.T I hoped that Near would be anything like him, but so far, he isn't a ma...

    I've read nothing but this manga all week, I kid you not. Why bother reading anything else when these plot twists are giving me LIFE. I hate hate hate that L is gone, he was my favorite character in this entire series but I feel like he isn't really dead... after all it's pretty eas...

    And, at last, Death Note is good again. It'll sound weird to a lot of fans that I'm saying that. A lot of fans hate this arc - from this volume until volume 12, things went downhill for a lot of people. And I just don't get that, to be honest. Yes, I miss L, just like everybody else...

    And here my problems begin. I still like Kira but... Did you see Mello? How can you not be obsessed with him? I'm obsessed with him and his chocolate! And I think that if Mello was the one against Kira from the beginning, I would be supporting him. But now? Can I get both? And,...

    Death Note, #8 is written by Tsugumi Ohba and drawn by Takeshi Obata and is 200 pages long. The genre of the story is mystery and also realistic modern time science fiction. The book is based on a notebook, called the Death Note, that allows a person to "kill" another person just by...

    Is it just me or is Light just a little bit stupid in this volume? Normally I'm practically screaming at how intelligent he is, but here he just left me like meh. I feel like since L died, he's become too relaxed, and also Mello and Near aren't brilliant replacements for L. Don't get m...

    The story is a little all over the place at the moment, but I think it'll be really awesome as the different threads start to come back together or snipped off (the Greek Fates style). ...

    Actual rating- 2.5/5 stars The story is kind of really boring now. I don't really care much for the characters now. The story doesn't feel the same without L. Near and Mello (jeez I thought Mello was a girl..o.o Even though I know that he's a boy now, he looks too girly so it's stil...

    The story is quickly finding its footing after the huge plot twist in the previous volume. With Near and Mello now in the game, Light finds himself stuck between a rock and a hard place. He sometimes loses sight of his goals and gets lost in a lust for revenge after having his ego atta...

    This is more of a 3.5/5 because I found myself drifting off a few times and I didn't like how Light wasn't on top of his game the first half of this volume, because his always being a step ahead or at least knowing what is going on at all times is one of the reasons I fell in love with...
