And, you gotta admit...he is slick.

He may well be the smartest character in the series. And if he is not the smartest, than he is definitly the second smartest.

Before it's too late to state this for the record (I would have posted this earlier if my mouse hadn't broke), this query is fallacious/unfair since it's implied that these two questions are the same but rephrased (or at least, people will see it that way) when they're really two different questions. I would ajust for second question to "If he were, say, an ordinary character in an anime", because otherwise people will read it and think, "Oh, that's true, if he were ugly I'd probably have a bad opinion of him". People may be biased against repulsatory characters just as they're biased toward hot ones, so somewhere in between should be what's focused on. Anyway, that's my few cents.

Ok..... let's get a few things straight

1. I loved this episode, masterful

2. Naomi gave Light "i know it's you" looks, if you payed close attention to her facial expression, but he didn't give away anything too suspicious; example: HE ASKED HER FOR THE BUS INCIDENT DATE AND INFO........even though at the end she should've suspected that he should've known this BECAUSE HE WAS PART OF THE "TEAM"

3. When he came into Headquarters, HE WAS CONTRAGULATED FOR HELPING SOLVE PREVIOUS CASES by both guys at the front desk and NAOMI WAS THERE

4. TOO MANY LITTLE DETAILS THAT GAVE AWAY EVERYTHING

5. Good/Evil..... I won't even comment on this, ALL that posted on this topic should already know the concept.... yes that means you are NOT stupid

6. As stated earlier THERE IS NO PERFECT ANIME/MANGA.......... we are all human after all

I loved this episode - they did the "whole episode of nothing but talking" extremely well...and when Naomi went off to die, it made me so sad *_* Tragicness.

And now is the point when everyone can say that Light isn't 100% "good natured"...personally I thought once he
Spoiler for a previous episode:
, that he was done being the good guy. But...power ruins the best of minds...

Still, I can't wait for the next episode...I would watch it raw but my Japanese isn't 100% yet, although at this point I know the conversations...hmm...

But yeah, I am overall very pleased with the makers of this anime - they're doing a good job of keeping it close to the manga, and can pull off the endless talking well.

I don't see why you all are saying how he tricked Naomi isn't possible. He used her emotions to his advantage. You got to remember she was very emotional at this time her fiance just died and here comes a kid you is agreeing with everything she is saying, and then offers her to join the Team. Now, even if he was lying you got to remember if it is true this might be her only chance. With all her emotions flowing and then getting the only chance she will every have to join the team. The hope of it being true and the chance to get revenge was just overwhelming, and I assume most of you have experiences when your emotions have taken the better of you.

To tell you the truth, my fav character is Ryuk Seriously.

I think Raito is popular because he is such a badass jerk. And that kind of characters are trendy in animeverse, regardless of their physical appearance.

LOL Rheinhard. Regarding your question, I think I agree with myopius. I wouldn't like any of the characters I do if they were ugly. Would any of you like L if he was obese and bald man with diabetes?

He was just Evil Glee Boy when he wasted Naomi, no contrition, no conflicting emotions, he was so happy he could't help but mock her on her way to grave.
I think you fail to remember "L" is the BEST detective and would catch on if ONLY Ray Penbar was killed. He would've suspected Light off the back because Ray was following ONLY Light. Killing the other FBI Agents makes it possible that these other Agents could've came in contact with Kira. So thats why they haven't jumped to conclusions because they are not 100% sure.

I think a lot of you guys need to get off your peddastools. Just as they said in the manga and the anime, on the surface we try to act just, but from the moment we see someone's face, we judge them. Truth be told, I have no problem with what Light is doing, and most likely, I would do much worse things than he. This anime is wonderfully twisted and tasty. I can't way to see where it goes.

While that may be true, people generally just judge whether or not they like the person, not whether or not they deserve to live.

I would still like L. His character just intrigues me; physical appearance would not detract from my appreciation of his thinking process/actions. I'm not so sure about Light though.

Spoiler for later manga + pointless + unnecessarily long analysis:

I am very late in this discussion but i just have to get this off my chest before continuing with this series.
The episode was mostly great but even after reading only several chapters of the manga I can't help but feel that as hyped as it is, the storyline of the manga falls short of what Madhouse have achieved, namely the amazing atmosphere of the anime. I think that's the reason I got bored by the manga quickly and yet I am enthralled by the anime. Too bad they didn't choose to make a 20th Century Boys anime but Death Note... The moment when the snow started falling was a moment of genius and beauty, even though I was screaming at the one who came up with the plotline of the manga at the very same moment.
And yes, Naomi's death totally felt like a plot device. As said, you cannot be both smart enough to figure so many things about Kira on your own and stupid enough to spill the beans to a total stranger. And I already hate Light with a passion, if anything can make me stop this series at some point it will be his god-complex and general annoyingness (is that a word?).

I've been lurking for a while, and finally I've decided to come out of my little corner and discuss this anime =P.

This episode was priceless. My favorite episode so far. The scene at the end was just flawless. When she handed over her drivers license to Kira, I almost thought something would go wrong. And when that police officer walked by..my heart skipped a beat. XD.

Also, that exprsesion on her face when he said "That's because...I'm Kira." was so sad.

I personally feel kind of sorry for Misora, but it's not really her fault for trusting Kira. She probably let her feelings overcome her senses and trusted him like that.

Also, that whole ep I was thinking of the shinigami eye deal. I really thought Kira was gonna make the deal =P.

Are you talking about the BGM that plays when Naomi walks away?

If so, its track 22 on the anime OST - titled Dirge.

This is in fact the best episode. Seeing Light's true manipulation ability was awesome! He played it so well and was flawless. The ending was just as great, him saying " I am Kira," and seeing her face, be like 'owned' haha. Kira is god!

The "I am Kira" part was the absolute best IMO! The episode kept you on the edge of your seat wondering how Light would pull it off especially when Naomi starts to walk away from him. Although Light is evil, I still noticed myself hoping he'd make it past this obstacle. That's probably because I wanted the series to continue, though. Naomi is such a smart person but when she heard she could get to L through Light she made the biggest mistake you could make.
