Death Note, Vol 13: How To Read
Death Note #13
Tsugumi Ohba
Takeshi Obata

270 pages

this is pretty much an encyclopedia of everything in the Deathnote series. Character bios, explanations of who did what and why, etc, etc. Even had the original “Deathnote” pilot chapter that Ohba wrote. A bit of a hard read, since there was just SO much info. Not really a manga, in the traditional sense. Definitely including this in my “number of books I read this year” as a “real” book 🙂

a satisfying conclusion. Melo dies, but Near is Triumphant over Light/Kira/NewL. Light was simply over the edge, a psycho mass murderer. But in the end, I was hoping that Kira would win, to create a better world. I REALLY liked this series. Confusing, and forcing you to read VERY carefully, but oh so worth it in the end. This series is one that I am looking forward to enjoying reading again. And quite possibly again 🙂

Near and Light are both positioning for the final Showdown. Near is flying to Japan to meet “L” aka Light. Next volume or the next will be the end. Looking forward to see how it all wraps up. Some of the “Rules” could make things really interesting, since they involve the shinigami.
