I don't know what to make of this. It's not like I had an emotional connection to any characters, but the highlight of this series, to me, was always the mind games between L and Light. With L being dead, that eliminates that altogether, just when I had been thinking that aspect of the show might return...

What? I didn't. Anime spoilers yeah but I presume people reading this thread, now that the episode is out, will be expecting to talk about it.

I pretty much agree. My favorite parts of the anime were the cat and mouse between L and Light, and just watching L generally. Without him there, I can't imagine it'll be nearly as interesting.

Yeah.

TBH it was a good episode but it's implications for the rest of the series are bad. 11 episodes without L? Come on.

L was the character that really made the show. At first Death Note was "Intriguing" but it wasn't "amazing" until we had L.

Sucks he had to die. I guess that's what happened in the manga, so it has to happen in the anime. I think when they make animes of stuff though, they should revise things like this. I don't think L dying this early on is integral to Death Note being Death Note. It would be much better if it didn't happen until towards the end if it had to at all.

Then in that case, Shiroth was merely giving away an anime spoiler, either. Which means you have no cause to be snarking on him.

BTW what do the kids have to do with anything at all? Are the scenes with the children flashbacks?

To go at Kittie's Rose doubt about L having no real name.
In the How to Read volume of Death note, it states the 66 rules on how using the Death Note.
One of them says that the shinigami eyes reveal the name that can be used to kill that person, even if that person was never given a name or have it registed.
So it makes me wonder how do people originally get their name? Does God give them? Is it different from the ones given by our parents?

OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG

Even though it happened.. I cannot believe it happened. While his eye's were closing, I was expecting them to pop open or something but!!! I am rather sad.. I knew at one point it would happen. I knew that some way or another, one of them would.. but... !!!

10/10

Why did they have to kill the old man.. what he ever do! He was so nice.. and sniper at that.

Spoiler for ep25:
This means that Rem should have done this before L had this plan ?

Not really -- the sub has been released, so spoilers to do with this weeks episode don't have to be in spoiler tags.

That could have worked, but then again Rem had no reason to kill L.

I didn't even watch the second movie after hearing the ending was changed --- that and i found the first movie to be a complete waste of time. :3

I really like how they handled this episode for the most part. I was a manga reader and really looked foward to seeing it, but there were a few scenes that seemed out of place to me.

On the postive side, I get that they were trying to throw in some foreshadowing and they did a really good job of showing how L knew he was defeted. Especially in that "gay" scene they added with Light and L.

Spoiler for not really a spoiler but a long biblical reference:


I also enjoyed the foreshadowing flashbacks to L's childhood. Given the deathly silence in the air (notice there was little background music), the loud, jarring church bell sound that only L could hear showed that he knew his time was coming. There's more foreshadowing in those scenes but mentioning them goes into manga spoiler territory. Never the less I really appreciated them.

And the way L died was perfect. There was no surprise in his eyes like Ray Penbar, or sadness like Penbar's fiance. He knew he was right all along, and he knew exactly how it was going to end.

One of my few complaints is the scene with Misa walking through Tokyo and singing. It just seemed completely out of place. I did however like the way she dressed and how the blank look on her face gave her the appearance of a doll. I guess thats just another good image, considering how she was used as a tool to indirectly kill L and Watari. Plus with Rem out of the way she's completely given herself up and is now a puppet for Light to control.

Anyways, all in all a real good episode. One of my favorites yet. But its also kind of a sad note for me cause IMO this is the point in the manga where it starts to go downhill.



Edit: Glad I'm not the only one who noticed the biblical reference.

I'll miss Rem though... it was nice to have a sane, balanced character, I guess.

L is DEAD. Period. If you name is written in the Deathnote you die, no way around it.

Please remember that any reference from the Death Note movie would be considered a spoiler, even if enclosed in spoiler tags.

The same warnng that applies to the manga applies to the movie, i.e.

Keep spoilers from the movie out of the anime thread, or face a BAN!
You may not even post movie spoilers in spoiler tags!
I suggest anyone who has just posted about the movie (that includes quotes that mentions the movie) had better edit their posts now, or face a ban!

I just watched ep 25.

I'm going to say this show just redeemed itself. What an awesome episode. Intense.
