Reviews Death Note, Vol. 5 (Death Note, #5)

  • C.G. Drews
    Ohhhh this took a hugely different turn from the first 4 books. Not that I'm SAD or anything? Just surprised, really. Kira's power is in the hands of evil companies...and this just makes me a little less invested because I DON'T CARE ABOUT THE COMPANIES. When it was just completely Light vs "L" I was 100000% invested because I love them both.Don't get me wrong though. THERE WAS STILL SO MANY GOOD THINGS AND I'M STILL DEFINITELY ENJOYING THIS SERI...
  • Kaylin (The Re-Read Queen)
    Eh. This seemed to suddenly change directions and now nothing is like it was? The original premise and conflict that were so interesting seem to have been thrown to the side in exchange for these corrupt businessmen?And will Misa ever do anything that doesn't revolve around Light??What ever happened with the Police Chief's health? He had a heart attack like two issues ago, supposedly stress induced, and now all this goes down with his son but he ...

    αρκετα πεσμενοι ρυθμοι σε αυτο το μερος.δεν υπηρχε καποια jaw dropping στιγμη ,οπως στα 4 προηγουμενα αλλα βλεπω οτι χτιζεται η συνεχεια η οποια πιστευω θα ναι πολυ δυνατη...#StillTeamL 👊👊
  • Connor
    [4.5 Stars] Still really great. This one has a lot of build-up for what will be going down in the next volume. I am so pumped for it!
  • Magdalen
    densely written and less interesting than the previous volumes. saw it coming but nbd. It gets better.
  • Daniel
    Moram da priznam nisam ocekivao pravac u kom ce se prica razvijati i to je odlicno ali... sve je suvise zakompikovano. Pokusavaju ci da prikaze ove likove kao izuzetno pametne samo im je umanjio na vrednosti. Glavni razlog zbog kojeg citamo ovo jeste nadmudrivanje izmedju L i Lighta i toga trenutno nema. Si gurno ce mo dobiti u knjizici dve kako je sve ovo bio samo ogroman plan jednog ili drugog ali ostajem pri tome da je ovo pravac koji mi se ne...
  • Giota
    The plot, the character development, the execution are still perfect, but I have to admit I liked the original concept way better. I miss the Light-going-up-against-L-in-epic-fight-of-wits.I don't care for the new characters that have been introduced and consequently I'm nowhere near as invested as I was. It's also taking a very Hollywood turn which makes everything very predictable.Last, but not least, I'm disappointed by Misa's character develo...
  • Roya
    Another flawless instalment. The humour, though short-lived and rare, was scintillating as always.Ohba never fails to impress. Alas, it may be some time before I can return to the Kira Investigation. There seems to be an endless influx of trivial books that have taken a liking to butting themselves into my TBR list. If they were animate, you can be sure that I'd put them in my death note._____________________________Reread on 22/03/2015
  • Nərmin
    That twist... But hey, Light is cuter when not being Kira))))
  • Marianna Neal
    Almost halfway through the series, I feel like it's getting a bit too complicated. This volume did seem like a transition into something more important (hopefully), so perhaps the next one will bring the excitement back. Sure, I was still really into it, but the Shinigami-human interaction was missing for the most part and I wasn't happy about that.!!!! SPOILERS !!!!The whole memory loss situation really isn't working for me. I suspect there is g...

    light really did THAT
  • Manisha
    Actual review: 3.5The turn in the story made it lag a bit. Not to mention that Light was the driving force of the story all this time, and now...
  • Ashley (JaffaCaffa)
    3.5 stars?I definitely liked this one more than the last volume, but I really missed Light's personality. The event that took place just took away a big part of what I love about Death Note and I felt a bit disconnected from the story because of it.I have Volume 6 ready to read but I'm sad, the series is going downhill. :(
  • Nicole
    Only three stars for this volume because I think Light's voluntary memory wipe is a total cop-out...although to be honest, I didn't see many other ways to extend the plot without putting Light-as-Kira to rest for awhile and transferring the power to kill to another character.Otherwise, the series remains enjoyable, even though Misa drives me nuts.
  • Josiemaus85
    So viele Dinge, an die ich mich nicht mehr erinnern konnte ^^'
  • Anna
    Finalmente proseguo con questo manga! Ancora una volta la stupidità che provo nel leggere dei geniali ragionamenti di L e Light raggiungi elevati livelli. Cioè in confronto a questi due geniacci, mi sento davvero molto inutile. Adoro soprattutto questo di Death Note, la capacità di farti ragionare su grandi temi come la giustizia, cosa è bene e cosa è male, in modo per nulla semplicistico e scontato. Sono davvero curiosa di vedere come si sv...

    Misa annoys me a lot and I don't like this eight businessman at all...This is the worse volume so far because things became so unrelated to what we started with. Light has become someone different, he is not present as much as he was brain wise. L takes more parts this time but I liked how they were fighting reason, what made them special was their weird relationship.These 8 men are so boring to read, the action is not needed if it's going to be ...
  • Lastik
    un buen giro de trama pero con un ritmo monótono en la investigación de búsqueda del nuevo Kira. Me ha parecido bastante de relleno ya que no hay mucha coherencia con la historia del comienzo. Aunque sabes que el verdadero fin de toda esta historia está escondida en al mente perversa de Light y no lo sabremos hasta más adelante. Por ello, me parece un poco de relleno estos capítulosMás sobre mi opinión en la reseña del bloghttp://almalec...
  • Shakira
    3.25This volume has been the least thrilling (I'm using that word very lightly) so far... there was a lot of strategy and build up in this though therefore I'm expecting big things from volume 6.
  • Madison
    This one kind of annoyed me but i get why this chunk of the story was written.
  • Mike
    This is my main review for the entire series. It doesn't really apply to this book, but it's far more intelligent than anything I have to say here, so just read that. Also, unmarked spoilers for previous books follow. You've been warned.Some background, in case you're too lazy to click the link. I have loved Death Note up until now. I loved the artwork. I loved the characters. I loved the moral complexity. I loved the suspense. At this point in t...
  • Gabriella Small
    Não entendi, um pouco direito.QUE DOIDOnossa mais que rumo que essa historia esta tomando.
  • Claudia Verónica
    Mucho mejor que el tomo anterior. Al principio estuve un poco perdida ya que no me acordaba muy bien que había pasado antes de estos eventos. Sigo sin soportar a Misa (personajes insufribles si los hay!) pero el rumbo que está tomando la historia hizo que me olvidara un poco de ella. Esto se está poniendo cada vez mejor!!
  • Michelle (In Libris Veritas)
    A filler volume. It's super slow and much of things you enjoy Death Note for take somewhat of a back seat.
  • Andrew
    In this new installment, the pattern changes dramatically. After the events of the last volume, with Light imprisoned, a new Kira makes his appearance, more inclined to use the diary to acquire power that punish the villains. Besides, having the basic elements of the series been altered, the investigative part is much more evident here. Some supporting characters have been introduced, but they seem taken from a television series (view spoiler)[th...
  • Kerry
    With volume 4 having reached a tense conclusion, I was both excited for this follow up volume, and at the same time apprehensive for what direction the story would take. Had I not already known there were 12 volumes in the Death Note series, I would have been convinced that the story would have been about to have complete its arc in ‘Whiteout’. (My guess is that the writer may have planned for this as well, however been encouraged to write mo...
  • Mikael Kuoppala
    The fifth volume of Death Note “Whiteout” finally takes the story to another level. The series so far has been compelling but a bit too repetitive and tedious with its tendency to circulate the same core setup. But now we get a true shift in the status quo and that shift brings some fresh storytelling with it.“Whiteout” is a balanced, thrilling ride from beginning ‘til end and it isn’t afraid to take risks or expand the scope of this ...
  • Sesana
    Quite an interesting turn of events set up here. Light's personality change after getting rid of (and thus, forgetting) the Death Note makes me wonder just how much of what we'd previously saw of him was because of the influence of the Note itself, and possibly Ryuk.
