It is gonna be a really long week for the last episode. Light has already declared himself the winner so I'm gonna guess N has one last trick and will end up on top.

Just a fore note; I don't think any of this needs a spoiler tag because I'm only discussing and speculating based on what was given in this episode (including the preview). If you don't want to hear about the preview, skip this post now.

My only complaint about this is how obvious they're making the outcome seem. The second to last episode, and they have set it up to seem like Light has won no matter what. The fact that the cliffhanger is at a part where Light declares his victory, would mean that something obviously happens right after that which is bigger than Light winning (aka him losing); if that's not the case, then whoever is doing the anime needs to learn what a cliffhanger is about. Having everyone die in the first five minutes of the next episode, and then having Light do a victory dance for 15 minutes obviously wouldn't work. The entire thing screams that Light is going to lose. I swear to the Gods, every scene in the preview is pointing at Light losing. I mean, lets go over them:
  • Near holding up what is assumeably the list of names Mikami was writing.
  • A gun being fired.
  • Mikami with what looks to be a worried/shocked look on his face.
  • Light being forced to use the piece of the Death Note he keeps in his watch.
  • The Near and Mello dolls being shown together like they were (which would suggest that Mello did something important).
  • Mikami in custody (being held by some guy).
  • Light being up against the wall all alone; with everyone staring at him from a distance (previous preview scene) while admitting he is Kira.


My only hope is that this episode and the preview is them setting it up to make people believe that it's too obvious for Light to win, and then have him win. If he ends up losing, I'm going to be extremely disappointed in the way this has been handled.

This reminds me of those stupid reality TV shows which try to make you think one person is being voted out, when it's clearly someone else.

I agree with the above, the placement of the ending and preview gave away just about everything.

Spoiler for 37 Preview:


However, there is still one huge twist (which had spoiled for me way before L's death) to go, something many of you won't be able to guess. Just make sure you stay away from the 2nd movie (and forums...) until 37 gets subbed!

There's a simple solution to this: don't watch the preview. :P

So yeah...I think we can all agree that Death Note is basically a perfect series all the way through. Hopefully people actually WATCHING the second arc will stop the huge amount of bias against it. Death Note is 100% awesome. Nuff said. And the ending rocks. I don't care what all you nay sayers say. You will be surprised! That's all I am going to say.

At one point when Mikami was freaking out he looked like Alucard from Hellsing, same eyes, teeth, hair, all of it.

Wow, so many posted so fast! This episode was a big O.o
And I think I too agree that it was the best or one of the best.
*Shaking* all the freaken tension and suspense! That was an amazing episode!!
The setting, the colour, the music and all that didn’t help with the suspense either
lol!

Spoiler for ep 24 and 36 scenes:


Spoiler for Show:


One more episode I can't wait to see what happens but then when its all over - what are we gonna do?!? I dont think there are many shows like Death Note out there *cries*
Oh well, as someone said better to finish good then continue and get bad.
But then we can look forward to getting the boxset and movies – yayness! It'll be fun watching it again.

~~Death Note's been brilliant, absolute brillant.~~

DAmn it what's wrong with Light? Why cant he just wait for the 40 sec to finish? He is virtually declaring he is kira which is what near wants. Why does he recklessly put his neck out like that? Shouldnt light have even thought of what will happen if something goes wrong?

Please let there be no twist. I am sick of morally and politically correct endings already. Let kira win!

The episode was awsome , but seriosuly, almost every one hinting at the ending. Pelli you should make a Sticky " anime watchers stay away from episode 36 discussion Thread " .

And why? Discussing episode 37 preview is part of episode 36 discussion.

I just wouldn't like to read unrelated comments or speculations on facts and events we didn't get to see in the actual episode 36, or in the preview for 37.

As I said before. Less than one week is left. Then everybody will be entitled to discuss the series on its full form.

OMFG. BEST EPISODE EVER.

Never has an episode of any anime made me feel as this one just did. My heart was beating with excitement when Mikami started the whole Eliminate thing. Its been like 20 mins since i finished watching and i'm still all excited. I think this episode made Death Note my No.1 Anime of all time.

Perfect episode if i ever saw one.
Can't wait for the ending.

Well made episode!

This episode will go down as one of the best anime eps in 2007 in my list,along with the upcoming stage 24 and 25 of code geass and maybe some eps from the upcoming higurashi kai.

Ep37 is going to be a make or break episode.

It would be nice to warn people the huge possibility of getting spoiled . Well denial is a good thing sometimes. When i was told L is going to die, i went in denial and didnt accept it so it didnt reduce my enjoyment of the show .

This episode was really good but i didnt think it was one of the best episodes ever made.
P.S. About making a Thread to warn people of spoiler hints in this thread, i was semi-joking .
P.S.2. Also was i hinting the ending myself ?. I didnt notice at all. I think most of the people who read the manga ,unconsciously hinting the ending. Not really on purpose.

I wish they would make it a dual ending to satisfy both sides
