* [[spoiler:BittersweetEnding: The ending could be looked at as this, or as a DownerEnding. [[BigBad Light is exposed as Kira]] and stopped, but at the cost of his, Watari's and Rem's lives, while L's lifespan is drastically shortened due to using the Death Note on himself. His decision to do so, instead of destroying the notebooks and removing Light's and Misa's memories, result in the collapse of his relationships with Erin and the task force. While Erin is shown moving on and keeping in touch with the task force, it's made clear that she completely regrets how she left L, and the oneshots show that few of the cast have yet to recover from the case. All in all, while Kira's reign of terror is over, no one's really won.]]
