Obviously L. Why? Because Light made to many mistakes in the beginning that he didn't know about. For example, killing Ray Penbar was one mistake.

did anyone else notice how much L changed between volume one and two ??

when he was first introduced in volume one, he looked like he might be an adult almost, that and he didnt do any of those weird habits of his

but in volume 2 when the task force met him, he really changed a lot, started his habits right then

might not be that important but its something
I thought L had the advantage from the start, but the strange habits kinda made him look a like he could care less

Light seems to have the advantage at the begining.

although L has numerous people under him, millions of dollars, and that huge brain of his, Light is just some high school kid no one would usually suspect, and since its not a direct murder, L has nothing to track him down with. He's to hard to catch with no trace.

thats the impression I got at first.

but by the end you realize... L can still solve a crime, without anything to work off of O_O

L won. He might not have made it to the end but his justice (still present being represented by Near) won over Light's view of justice. So L lives on in Near, while Light has nobody to continue for him.

That's not entirely accurate, his actions spawned a cult following after his demise.

Light obviously has the upper hand.

Both Light and L's downfall was trusting and using other people.

I just started watching DN. Though I know the ending already (but haven't seen the entire series), it looks at first that both Light and L are equally strong in their skills.

I'd say Raito and L were pretty equal. I mean, Raito did have his victories and I'd say that L, also had his equal share.

too bad misa ruin everything, and light has to cover for her, thus laying ground for his demise at the end.

Well, besides Light being able to kill without being seen/detected, he had the help of Ryuk during the incident with the planted cameras. Ryuk was able to tell him which way the cameras were facing, which enabled him to use the chip bag to hide the portable TV. If he hadn't of known what direction the cameras were facing in, he would have been forced to carry out the killings from another location, and that would have only made L suspect him more. If he tried to deactivate the cameras himself, that would have seriously put him under suspection. And if he just stopped writing names altogether, he would have been caught.

Rem also helped Light by giving the Death Note to Higuchi so that the killings would continue while he was in confinement.

These advantages gave Light the upperhand over L.

I believe that Light (Kira) had always had the upper hand in this series to an extent
