Hmm, they took there time with this episode --- i pretty much thought that the material used for this episode would only taken up half of an episode, though they did a wonderful job at explaining L's plan, and ending the episode at the perfect time. Also, i'd like to point out that the preview for next episode was also well-done. :3

Really? When I went through the manga, I got the feeling that it would have taken longer than an entire episode to include all the stuff in it. I thought that they made good use of cuts to fit it perfectly.

Hmm, its pretty much what i thought while watching the episode --- though the pacing made perfect scene with how they ended the episode.

Thank god, it looks like Death Note is finally getting back on track.

Ep 22 seemed to be going at quite a slow pace, not sure how many manga chapters it used. I didn't mind too much really, I'm more happy about the plot becoming interesting again than annoyed by anything else.

Next episode looks like it's going to be the best episode we've had for a long time. I can't wait to find out how Light plans to regain his memories, it's going to have to be brilliant to become Kira again under the nose of the ever suspicious L.

The revival of Death Note is near?

The direction is awesome. The camera work is some of the best I've seen in any anime, creating a fantastic atmosphere. Madhouse is always love.

8/10

Going on the title of the next episode supposedly being 'Rebirth', it's safe to assume the revival of the anime is very near.

The preview showed Weby (whatever her bloody name is) pulling out her gun, hopefully resulting in her getting shot and killed. The dull characters must all vanish!

Death Note has always been Death Note to me, each and every episode. Sure the atmosphere changes but then again it's going back to how it started off - dark. Recently bought ten volumes of the manga and I've nearly read them all except the two I've yet to own - now I just don't feel like watching the anime But like Shiroth said, I also expected it to only take half an episode...

seen the eyes and facial expressions during _the one_ Question? Looks like this has triggered his memorys back or convinced him he WAS Kira.

Not neccessarily. He could just be deep thinking just like when he was Kira, and thus the same expression. And indeed, plans were meant to be failed, especially with deliberate plan like this. It also raises ethical problems when deception (one of the great sins) is used to get some "understandings".

I noticed that too, but think a bit more closely. Giving up your Death Note doesn't just cause some patchy amnesia; you completely forget about everything that happened regarding said note. My guess is that:

Spoiler for Future episodes:


In terms of the episode, this was KyoAni-level quality. I'm not even kidding! I seriously hope Death Note stays this good for future episodes, because Madhouse has now proven they can produce a very much epic series, and I greatly look forward to them doing so.

Issei Futamata's acting as Higuchi was excellent.
You could literally feel his desparation, and losing control.

Those unfamiliar with the VA's name might recognize him as Godai, protagonist of Maison Ikkoku.
He truely shows what a true veteran voice actor can pull off.

I love the camera work in this episode, and the previous one as well. The scenes with the Higuchi's car on the streets are just so well done they almost look real.

Great job to Madhouse for carrying out the intense atmosphere of Higuchi's desperation (and his expected downfall next episode). The scene was already quite gripping in the manga, to be able to replicate that sensation (and even heighten it) on to the screen is no easy feat.

He has not the memorys back, but maybe he is now SURE that he was Kira? The death Note dont change your personality (much ) One can predict what he will done when he has the note (he thought about that 1 or 2 episodes earlier) and Light will know what he will do when he is a suspect.

One of the better episodes death note has had for a long time. THe prevoius few episodes have been really boring, but seeing the two actually do some thinking made the episode very good.
