** Late in the investigation, L asks Light "Tell me, Light--from the moment you were born, has there ever been a time where you've actually told the truth?"truth?" For just a moment, L stops playing the game between him and Kira, and straight asks Light if he really is just that terrible of a person. Even Light, who has aspirations of godhood, is unnerved.

A PsychologicalThriller manga with supernatural elements, ''Death Note''--written by Tsugumi Ohba and illustrated by Takeshi Obata--received an anime adaptation and inspired a series of AlternateContinuity live-action films which are all based on, but slightly different from, the original manga. In 2015, a [[Theatre/DeathNoteTheMusical stage musical adaptation]] of the manga opened at the Nissay Theatre in Tokyo, Japan; it features original songs written by famed Broadway composer Frank Wildhorn (of ''Bonnie and Clyde'' and ''Dracula the Musical'' fame), along with lyrics by Wildhorn's longtime lyricist Jack Murphy and a book by Ivan Menchell. A [[Series/DeathNote TV drama]] also premiered in 2015; it featured a different cast than the live-action films. An [[Film/DeathNote2017 American live-action film adaptation]] (set to be directed by Adam Wingard) is currently slated for a 2017 release.

* TruthInTelevision: Kira's idea of justice has him uncritically kill anyone wanted by the police, or arrested, unworried if they have been falsely accused or framed - without any second thoughts about "innocent until proven guilty" or "rights of the accused", to say nothing of rehabilitation. In real life, the Japanese legal system has a 99.8% conviction rate, mostly based on confessions, [[http://www.economist.com/news/leaders/21679472-suspects-japanese-police-cells-are-far-too-vulnerable-abuse-forced-confess many of which may be taken under duress]] as you can be imprisoned for up to 23 days without being charged (and the prisons themselves are [[http://www.economist.com/news/asia/21679483-why-you-might-prefer-bangkok-jail-one-chiba-silent-screams cruel psychological-torture chambers]].) Kira's really just a product of Japanese policing culture.
