3In 2007 a LightNovel was published in Japan based on the movie ''Film/LChangeTheWorld'', which was itself a SpinOff of the popular ''Franchise/DeathNote'' franchise. The novel in itself is pretty short, with only a total of 188 pages.
4
5It's an {{alternative continuity}} to both the main ''Manga/DeathNote'' series and the film it was based on. The story centers around L and his last 23 days on earth and twenty-two days to save the world from a terrorist group called Blue Ship whose main goal is to purify the world by killing off most of humanity with a deadly virus.

8!!Tropes:
9
10* AlternativeContinuity: Basically it is a continuity similar to the manga, but with the alternate ending of "The Last Name" film.
11* BigBrotherInstinct: L to Maki. See PapaWolf below.
12* BondVillainStupidity: [[spoiler:Both K and Matoba]]
13* ChildrenRaiseYou
14* EcoTerrorist: Has the most extreme version, with a group called Blue Ship who want to kill off most of humanity with a supervirus in order to save the environment.
15* ForegoneConclusion: L will die in the very end.
16* GambitPileup: At one time, there are at least four people with different agendas, with L, Blueship, Surega, Kujo, [[spoiler:Maki]], etc.
17* GambitRoulette: [[spoiler:Misa accidentally writing the wrong date for Rod Ross's death]] and L using this to his advantage.
18* LikeBrotherAndSister: The novel stated that L and Maki's close [[IntergenerationalFriendship friendship]] is not just any type of friendship; they are like siblings.
19* MythologyGag: There are a few references to the original work and the movie:
20** L revisits the Yellow Box Warehouse, where he meets Blue Ship for the first time.
21** Rod Ross gets a passing reference, whose name is written down by [[spoiler: L himself. However, considering that Rod Ross isn't his real name according to the [[AllThereInTheManual manual]], a reader might actually figure out [[TheUntwist that L didn't really kill him]].]]
22** Matsuda does the [[FakingTheDead fake falling death]] he did [[spoiler:in the Yotsuba Arc]] in a similar way, except [[spoiler: in a gambit where he is pretending to be Surega, Surega posing as L, and with a fake Death Note.]]
23** L hides things inside potato chip bags and even lampshades "Nobody would think that anything important would be inside a bag of potato chips" when Maki comments on it. He also mentions that he doesn't eat Consumme flavor chips.
24* PapaWolf: Played straight with L.
25** [[spoiler: When Maki went missing and got kidnapped,]] L went into full blown Papa Wolf mode and is ready to [[spoiler: kick some Blue Ship ass.]]
26** Towards the end of the novel L addressed to the president [[spoiler: that if he doesn't promise to make a better world for the children technically "he" will not hesitate to use the Death Note.]]
27** And L for the first time completely loses his composure and calm attitude: when Maki is kidnapped by Blue Ship, L breaks down and screams toward the sky .
28* PetTheDog: Misa genuinely cares for Maki like a sister.
29* ShipTease: L is (more or less) ship teased with both Light and Misa. Much to the delight of the shippers....
30* StalkerWithACrush: L to Misa. His fanboy crush is pretty cute at first but then it slowly starts to get creepy.
31* TheDitz: Subverted. When Kujo first meets Surega, she acts like she didn't know about the FBI. [[spoiler:Zig-Zagged when it is revealed that Kujo is K.]]
32* TheManBehindTheMan: [[spoiler:Kujo hijacks Mosuba's plan.]]
33* TheWarOnStraw: [[AuthorTract No, this is not the argument of the Green movement... Nor is this why anyone supported]] [[RootingForTheEmpire Kira.]]
34* WellIntentionedExtremist: Blue Ship's goal is to kill off most of humanity in order to save the environment. [[spoiler:Kujo takes advantage of this]].
