  • Melissa ♥ Dog/Wolf Lover ♥ Martin
    I am freaking loving this series and I'm only two books in and I'm in love with L. =)Look at my Funko of L =) I wanted to get Ryuk too but they messed his up. I don't like how it looks one bit and that makes me mad because he's so cool. Sigh.... OH My Lord! I want them to take down Light! I hate him! Okay, in the beginning when he was only killing evil people that wasn't so bad but now he's killing innocent people. And then when he killed someone...

    Okay, this is so amazing! I literally freaked out because I cannot take it how amazing it is. And this is my second time reading it!)Team Kira all the way and I feel no shame at all! And I want Ryuk! I would give him all of our apples! Btw, can I say that detective Raye Penber deserved what he got? I seriously disliked the way he talked to his fiancée, Naomi.

    OH THAT WAS SO GOOD. These books honestly remind me of like a Sherlock/Moriarty thing going on and I'm 10000% sure that's why I'm enjoying them so much. If, well, Moriarty was a Japanese teenager and Sherlock had manners. Ahem. Moving forward. I'm actually not sure how to review manga??? So I'm just going to list some things I particularly enjoyed in this volume.THINGS I LIKED: The art, as always, is A+ We get WAY more of "L" in this book...and h...

After verifying that the notebook works and initially being terrified...

    The plot development in this Manga series has far surpassed my expectations. I still find it phenomenal that so much has been packed into so little text! Tsugumi Ohba, you have me in awe!This is the second volume in the Death Note series and continues following the story of teenager, Light Yagami, who is the current owner of the Death Note - a magical notebook that can be used to kill all those whose names are written within the pages. He also in...
  • Kaylin (The Re-Read Queen)
    What this series lacks in overall believability it makes up for in plot twists and interesting characters. The portrayal of women is still odd and not my favorite, but at least there was ACTUALLY a female character this volume. Still raises some very interesting questions about morality and I'm curious to see where the plot goes.
  • Ashley *Hufflepuff Kitten*
    Quickly falling in love with the fast pace -- it's crazy how quickly L works. And there's only twelve books in the series! Onward to #3
  • Magdalen
    Typical Light being toooo smart. Unrealistic but who cares? And L
  • Katie.dorny
    This is getting so questionable on the part of Light now. And L .. I have so many questions.This is so well written and smart and I love it!!On to the next one
  • Patricija - ReadOff
    I still liked it, but thought L connected the dots way too fast.
  • Norah Una Sumner
    *That Geez tho*Just kidding.The story and the characters develop a lot and it's nice to see some cool supporting characters.There are a lot of twists and great lines which got me thinking a lot.Also,this is probably my favourite Death Note video because he sounds like a dying horse(also,the Spanish and Korean version just crack me up).Just thought you should know this.Bye.
  • Ruth Govaerts
    I want a shinigami as a home pet!
  • Kelly
    I'm really starting to get into this series but Light is starting to pee me off this how he just bloody knows everything!! He's 17 for God sake and he knows how to manipulate an intuitive FBI agent into giving her real name?? Please!! And instantly knowing he's being watched in his house due to all the booby traps he puts in place every time he leaves his room; you're telling me none of his family ever goes in his room or has never notice this ro...

    Having the power to kill, even if done for "Greater Good" is still turn your soul to Darkness...And in this part... Light can't get more Dark...Specially with his encounter with "The Woman";Naomi Misora, a woman who wanted who killed her fiancée..A woman strong enough to Detect who can be Kira..Yet she just went to him... in a strange twist of fates..---------------This volume is even more dark , since Kira decided to eliminate the F...
  • Mansi
    The obsession is real at this point. Found Naomi quite annoying though. Quite enjoying L if ya catch my drift. If you haven't started on this series yet then what are you waiting on.
  • Marija
    I'm so addicted to this. It keeps getting more and more intense. Although I admire both boys for their intelligence I have to say that I'm team "L". He is weird, whereas Kira is more the antihero or something like that. I am eager to know what he will do next but I cannot approve his actions.
  • Gayatri
    Gods of death are addicted to APPLES? Haha. Great!
  • Gorab Jain
    Read this in a single sitting. Because its impossible to stop anywhere in between.The brain games got more intense! Characters are evolving better and churning more thrill!The paperback black edition is something to die for.Only grit is - why all the rules are not introduced in the beginning? Arrrgggh.P.S.: If you've committed any sin, remove your real pic and real name from all of social media. Kira is watching you!
  • Ferdy
    SpoilersPretty good but not quite as engrossing as volume 1. It was more slower paced and there didn't seem to be a whole lot of development - Light was still killing people, L was still trying to catch him out, people were still wondering WTF was going on. I didn't find Light as interesting either. I liked that he had an agenda and purpose in the first one he wanted to only kill criminals (for the supposed sake of justice and creating a better ...
  • Vanessa
    #JapaneseJune Book #6.The tension is really amped up in this volume, and it's only the second installment to the series! Light is treading on thin ice as L puts together a special investigation unit and ups his suspect surveillance. Not only that, but he has the girlfriend of a victim sticking her nose into his business at the same time. Sometimes I have to wonder how he manages to remain to calm and collected - I don't know if I like him as a pe...
  • Manisha
    This just got a whole lot interesting. I love the concept and I love the story. It's intelligent! I can already tell that this is my new favourite.
  • Ashley
    4/5 StarsIn this second installment, Light Yagami has continued his plight to rid the world of crime and criminals. However, now that the American FBI is working with his homeland government, what lengths will he go to in order to hide his identity? Is Light becoming even more out of control. Tag along as this story gets even darker and more twisted as Light and his Shinigami friend travel even further down the rabbit hole.Im really glad that I s...
  • Shinjini
    The cliffhanger at the end of the first volume was too much for me. So, I had to jump into the next one as soon as was possible. Off to volume 2!The story opens where the first volume left off. A failed bus-jacking leads to Raito getting to know the name of the FBI agent who was following him. That leads to him uncovering the identity of all the other agents posted in Japan. He puts this information to use and forwards it as a challenge for L.The...

  • Clarissa Emiria
    I am enjoying the story SO, so much! It is VERY compelling..! I will want the series for my own shelves, that's for sure! :-)It is highly readable, compulsively so, maybe even? Hmm.. I found myself so eager to know what happened next that I kept reading and kept forgetting to stop and look at the graphics T_TThis IS my first time with ANY kind of graphical media in I guess fifteen years? :-/ Even when watching movies and tv-shows, if there are su...
  • Amy (Other Amy)
    If I messed up even one time... If I left even one clue to my identity, I'm finished. Just one clue...Mass murder has rarely been so much fun. (This set of episodes really drives home the fact that Light really is a stone hearted killer.) The contest between Light and L is fantastic. Who am I cheering on? Do I even know? (Is it too much to put my hat in the ring for Naomi? Come on, Naomi!) Light's interactions with his family are exquisite, and h...
  • Rebecca (whymermaids)
    Volume 2 picks up right where Volume 1 left off, with Light testing his abilities with the Death Note and trying to cover his own butt. We get to see more L in this volume, including his face! and we start to understand more of his motives and character. Theres also a pretty cool female character introduced, which is always nice to see. Overall, the volume is basically Light trying to gather how much knowledge his adversaries have about Kira and ...

    The hunt for Kira continues and L has to change his ways as he struggles to keep up with the challenge. But Kira finds himself with new threats that he needs to cunningly take care of.Love the cat and mouse game, and even more the whole ethical dilemma behind Kira's mission.But the best line in this volume?JUSTICE WILL PREVAIL!Yours truly,Lashaan | Blogger and Book ReviewerOfficial blog:

    Ryuk is the main reason for 5 stars. Don't get me wrong, I love the series and I love watching these geniuses play a cat and mouse game. However, Ryuk is the best neutral character ever. He literally serves no purpose but to entertain us.
