Yeah, first to post !

I will say, after 37 episodes, Light and L are my favorite Death Note characters. Their mental showdown was just magnificent : Light is a demonic genius and L is a cute genius with very strange methods.

In the first part, I truly admired Light, but in the second part, I though he became a pure larva, a bastard corrupt by his power who no longer has the same noble ideals he had in the first part. But in the ending, he really realised that his perfect world collapsed and those noble ideals came back...

L was a very complex characters. He was fun, funny, adorable, kind of weird, but always heartwarming and fresh. But in the end, was made him so different from Near is that Near would follow a hypothetical way, while L wanted proofs and concreet facts. In other words, L was just... too intelligent Oo

+1 for A LOT of cult quotes from him :

"Even though I eat so much, my brain cells consume everything and I can keep a 50 kilos weight."

"When I sit properly, my reasoning capacities decrease by 50%."

I love him, simply.

I voted for L, he will always be my first choice, no question about it.
Aside from his stunning intelligence and deductive skills, he has an odd aura of charisma to him.

He's horrendously attractive, I scare myself even thinking about him. His peculiar habits are all too adorable. It is safe to say that I was awestruck the first time I heard him confront Kira.

I could go on and on, but I'm sure there's another topic where this is more suitable.

However, since this was multiple choice, I also opted to include Mikami. His sense of justice was very distinct, and seemed stronger and more pure than the ideals Light kept, at least before acquiring his Death Note.

He did stray from his path and enter a psychotic dementia after being appointed the duty of executioner, but that did not diminish my fondness for the character.

The look in his eyes when he was performing his lord's work reminded me of Alucard's bloodthirsty eyes, which also sold me over.

I could easily have added Light as well, as I do like, and even agree with, most of his actions. However, I just could not accept the way he treated Misa throughout the series.

She offered him nothing but absolute devotion and love, and he sought to end her life as soon as he lay eyes upon her. As I'm sure you all know how it turned out, you'll understand why I cannot include Light. Edit: The death of Naomi Misora was also one of pure evil, "go somewhere where your body won't be found and kill yourself."

Synopsis: I love L

L and Light because theyre pretty much awesome in the beginning when they are outwitting each other, and Mikami just cuz he was the definition of awesomeness from beginning to end.

Light is #1 without doubt. His choice to become Kira instead of having a long, prosperous normal life was enough to buy me out. But of course becoming the god is impossible for a human. He went quite far, though, was indeed able to change the world a little, and will be remembered for a long time even after his death. I doubt that Light regretted his choice even in his last moments.

Mikami's #2, he's simply awesome. He did everything with style and shares Light's zeal. The way he lost his death note was stupid though and that's the reason he's second to Light.

L is my favorite anime character of all time, so yeah he gets my vote. He has everything, he is unique, charismatic, intelligent, funny and despite his oddness and unrealistic and exaggerated character design, still comes off as a very human character, which is where Near failed.

I also really liked Light... never bothered to think about whether his actions and methods were morally and politically right or wrong, regardless of that, he is still a fascinating character.

Mello is awesome too, ambitious, reckless and hardcore, when he appeared you knew you were gonna get something good. Plus his fashion sense is the best in the show, god those were some awesome coats he had.

Those are my top 3 in the Death Note, but I still like some others... Ryuk is entretaining (which is funny, because all he wanted was to be entretained), Matsuda is mostly comic relief but still manages to make me root for him, plus he has that badass moment in the final episode, and Misa is a good character too, interesting contrast to have a dumb blonde (well she still has her smart moments though) in the middle of those two geniuses.

Biggest disappoint to me was Mikami, awesome when he first showed up, loved his backstory and his "Sakujo" and "Kami!", but in the last couple of episodes he went too psychotic for my taste.

Light. Reason being that this is the only anime I really like, since we actually have the evil guy as a main character.
Second is L for his personallity.

L - I like simple characters that does'nt have that much detail, but has THAT appeal and character development plus the way he acts is weird, but hey it's funny and stunning at the same time. 1st time I saw him was the Live Action then the manga then the anime. I really like his design and that even made me buy an L cap.

N(Neer) - one reason a silly little boy that is L's counter part. Ever since L died I hated DN for killing such a cool character, good thing L's replacement N was good enough of a character to be almost in his level.

She really doesn't. I mean, she's cute, but also where her list of favorable characteristics ends.

She's selfish, childish, and actually fairly evil.
