Manga Mondays #180: Death Note vol. 7 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?


After a high-speed chase, Light and the taskforce apprehend the newest Kira. Light regains his Death Note and his memories, and the depths of his cunning are revealed as the plans he carefully put in place before going into confinement are slowly unveiled. His masterful manipulation of both humans and Shinigami lead him to the strongest position he's yet enjoyed. But the glow of his victory is marred when a new threat appears. Can Light withstand a surprise attack on two fronts? (courtesy of Goodreads)


Finally! Death Note regains its footing. There's so much going on in this volume. Not just multiple plot lines, but multiple important plot lines.

I figured that Light regaining his memories of being Kira would be the most significant part of the volume. And it certainly was important. It's refreshing to have our old scheming Light back. I like his arrogant intelligence far more than his creative innocence.

We also get a big flashback on how Light devised his plan to lose his memories but ensure that he could regain them. True to form, it was elaborate and virtually fail-safe. My only complaint is that the transition from present time to flashback was abrupt. It took me a page or so to realize that the time-frame had changed.

Like I mentioned, Light regaining his memories was only one of the significant plot lines. There was another development that shocked me. I really expected to see that it was a big ruse by the end of the volume, but it doesn't appear to be. I hope that it does turn out to be a ruse though after a few volumes.

Can't wait to read on and so happy that Death Note is exciting again.
