Finally got around to reading this since so many people say it's their favorite and recommend it highly. I am not impressed.
Light would sacrifice his own family just for his plans. He manipulated many women and killed many people. He really doesn't care about justice, he care about being the god of the new world. He doesn't deserve a better end. So no fuck your logic and fuck your fanboyism.
I read this years ago in school.

Well, the MC messed up pretty bad, but then it was a teenager, and honestly I didn't really think about politics back then.

Good manga. :-)
Ending was a total disaster...it ruined the whole story. Actually story lost it charm from midwards,with repeated plotlines. I dont care what others says,Light Yagami sure deserved a better end and well he is mine favourite character from the series.
Akio u shouldnt look too much into what he writes. He just writes what he doenst like about the manga. Not that theres anything bad about doing that.
I didn't like it much. I didn't find a lot in terms of actual plot holes per se, as in like things that couldn't have happened that way. There may have been one or two cases where someone missed a tactical option or made a deductive leap that didn't seem plausible, but that stuff happens and it all got so convoluted it was hard to remember just who had what information anyway.
But broadly, the manga took an interesting premise (the power to kill people unstoppably and tracelessly; can it be used as a force for good?), gave it to a guy who was theoretically a genius, and had him use it in a way that was amazingly trivial, morally myopic, and strategically stupid. Spoilerizing long rant.
@Trepur: what plot holes did you find?
both the anime and manga were overrated imo.

I found multiple plot holes and the people who idolize L piss me off.
@Laurens D I'm pretty sure it's not important because Tsugumi Ohba is trying to show from the cult is that people have already idolized Kira as God rather than a person. The girl was just there to confuse you from the his point of view.
A excellent question. Who would you kill? Would it make the world better? Is it right to kill?
Still, nothing can beat the manga. also i wonder who that girl was in the end!
The anime was insane just like the manga. Definetely recommended.
