Manga Mondays #179: Death Note vol. 6 by Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata

Manga Mondays Meme

I've been doing Manga Mondays every week since I started my blog almost 4 years ago. It started out as a personal feature, but I decided to turn it into a meme last year. There are quite a few people who do Manga Mondays. I don't claim by any means that I owned or created the idea of Manga Mondays - it's an obvious choice given the alliteration. I think a meme is a great way for everyone to publicize their own Manga Mondays and get a little more publicity.

The linky will be below my review.

Death Note vol. 6 by Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata


Light Yagami is an ace student with great prospects - and he's bored out of his mind. But all that changes when he finds the Death Note, a notebook dropped by a rogue Shinigami death god. Any human whose name is written in the notebook dies, and now Light has vowed to use the power of the Death Note to rid the world of evil. But when criminals begin dropping dead, the authorities send the legendary detective L to track down the killer. With L hot on his heels, will Light lose sight of his noble goal...or his life?

Although they've collected plenty of evidence tying the seven Yotsuba members to the newest Kira, Light, L and the rest of the taskforce are no closer to discovering which one actually possesses the Death Note. Desperate for some headway, L recruits Misa to infiltrate the group and feed them information calculated to bring Kira into the open. But the Shinigami Rem reveals to Misa who the Kiras really are, and, armed with this knowledge, Misa will do anything to help Light. But what will that mean for L...? (courtesy of Goodreads)


A stronger volume than the previous one, but it still suffers without Light consciously being Kira. His memory of being Kira is still wiped.

In this volume, Misa remembers that she is the second Kira. Actually, she doesn't remember but rather her shinigami tells her. I still hate Misa and kind of hope she dies soon, as heartless as that is. She's such a ditz and annoyingly refers to herself in the third person. On the other hand, she's calculating and intelligent - seemingly in spite of herself. She drives much of the plot of this volume.

It also appears that this volume concludes most of the third Kira - Yotsuba's involvement. The later portion of the volume is about trapping the person in charge of the notebook. It gets very exciting. Much in contrast to the earlier part of the volume which drags.

I'm really hoping that Light will return to his devious self in the next volume. I miss him.

**L = Sherlock? I see a lot of resemblance between L and the BBC's modern Sherlock. He's brilliant and also socially awkward. There are even similarities between L and Sherlock's unusual physical movements. In the first episode of Sherlock, Sherlock sits in a chair in the same odd squatting position with his feet on the chair itself. Exactly as L always does. I doubt it was a conscious choice by the makers of Sherlock (Death Note is older) but it's curious nonetheless.

  1. Yeah, I saw a lot of similarities with L and Sherlock too and thought that was cool. I just wish we got more of a back-story to L's character. Where did come from? What's his family like? How did he get to work with the police? While I didn't like Misa all that much, I also didn't appreciate how she's treated like a puppet either.
