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?


Death Note! What can I say about this story except that I adore it? I came to the manga after having seen the anime, the Netflix film, and the musical. However, I still had such fun reading it, even though I was, by then, 100% familiar with the story. It's such a brilliant concept, well plotted, and with memorable characters. I am a complete Light fangirl. I love him so much. Though L is also great fun. I am still reasonably new to manga and anime, but of those I have seen/read so far, Death Note is my fave, without a doubt. I highly recommend it.
