* This troper thinks that Light is a perfect example of hating the person but loving the character. He's a monster, for sure, but he's fascinating to watch. In real life, I would absolutely despise him, but in the show, I found myself wanting him to win, even though I know he's the villain. I guess he's the kind of character that I love to hate.

*** Leaving aside the merits (or otherwise) of the ''Death Note'' dub, you are correct not to lump me in with fans who dislike it simply because it's not Japanese. Perhaps my question was not clear; I'm not interested in how the translators came up with that line (for all I know, the dubbers may simply have lifted it wholesale from the English version of the manga), but in why so many fans seem to prefer a line that, to put it bluntly, sounds quite a bit less BadAss than "Just as planned."

** This troper [[RootingForTheEmpire roots for Light because he is a fictional character and I find him to be the most interesting character in the show]] with the most developed personality. He's also smart, BadAss, [[DracoInLeatherPants pretty]], and has more substance than say [[EmotionlessGirl L and Near]] (just watch I'm going to get killed by the fangirls now)-not that it's NICE substance-Light is an awesome ''[[VillainProtagonist villain]]'' but since most of his crimes are either off-screen or people who "[[KickTheSonOfABitch have it coming]]" it's easier to like him. Of course I wouldn't want to ''live'' in that world. (In fact in real life I'm opposed to everything he stands for). [[WishFulfillment But I also might root for like...]] [[{{Spiderman}} Venom]] or [[Film/KillBill the Bride]], or Comicbook/ThePunisher or Series/{{Dexter}} or even your typical ActionHero that solves problems by punching people in the face, shooting things, and blowing shit up but I don't think you should go out and kill everyone who annoys you- so for those bringing politics into this [[MST3KMantra it's just a show, you should really just relax.]]

** I thought from the ending that Shinigami were [[spoiler: humans who used the Death note, judging from the shinigami Ryuk is telling the story to is apparently supposed to be Light himself, also the rule that humans who use the DN go to neither heaven nor hell]]

[[folder: L infected ]]

** Why was L not infected with that disease when he was on the plane in L: change the worLd ? everyone else was breaking out in blisters left and right but he directly touches two people who have it and nothing happends ! You could say he took a cure for himself before going on his rescue mission...but if he was going to die in a couple more days...why waste a valuable cure on himself ?

** One of the Rules of the Death Note states that the notebook has an infinite number of pages in it. It will never run now, no matter how much one uses it.

** There is no reason to call an ambulance (and why should he, specifically, be the one to call it anyway? As you say, there are 5 other officers there)- it's blatantly obvious that he is the victim of the Death Note, and they already have countless corpses that prove that if your name is in the note, you're dead. An ambulance would be useless. Besides, they already know who wrote L's name in the book, and they know it wasn't Light.

** L's logic was thus: a LOT of criminals, worldwide, suddenly die of heart attacks out of nowhere. The only thing these people had in common was that they were criminals. It's almost completely impossible for that to happen naturally, or that it happened due to negligence (as the above person noted), so that leaves that someone has deliberately murdered them. He does some research and concludes (in the movie) that secret underground organization would need ''at least'' 80 operatives in order to do that... which also is nearly impossible. Such a large organization would be ridiculously hard to keep completely secret, there's no paper trail, ''and'' autopsies have uncovered no evidence of poisoning or other covert methods of killing people. L then jumps to what he considered the next-most-likely explanation: a single person with a hitherto unknown and seemingly-impossible power is killing them. It's just an application of Sherlock Holmes's famous phrase: "When you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth."
