that those with reaper's eyes

can identify people.

Was Sakura Aoi the new Kira?

I'm afraid not.

The new Kira imitates

Light Yagami, the original Kira.

He used the Death Note to persecute

felons all over the world.

It reduced crime by 70%.

Kira followers worship him as God.

Some god!

The new Kira also targets felons,

not innocent people.

Sakura Aoi is opposite to Kira.

What a worn notebook!

This is my Death Note notebook.

He's a Death Note fanboy.

- I'm not!

- Fanboy?

You can ask him anything about Death Note.

It's handy.

Just one notebook

caused so many deaths!


It's not just a notebook.

It belongs to a reaper.

To humans it's a lethal weapon.

We can learn from...

Don't touch it!

What's your name?


What's that?

Touch .

Touch a Death Note and you can see its reaper.

- Is it here?

- Yeah, brace yourself.

Come on.

Hold on.

Beppo, make a cute face.

Come on, guys.

Come on.

I haven't seen one for 10 years...


I have a question.

What is it?

How many Death Notes are in our world?


One is lethal enough!

Will they increase?

Only 6 Death Notes are

allowed in the human world.

Ryuzaki is chatting with a reaper!

He's Interpol's go-to guy. And the next L.


L stopped Kira 10 years ago.

He has a successor?

L stored his DNA while he was alive.

I'm the result.

Your nemesis. Say hi to a world-class P.I.

What do you want?

That's for you to find out.



What if there was a 7th Death Note?

Any Death Note after the 6th won't work.

Except the Death Notes that the reapers have.

I didn't know that...

How many Death Note rules are there?

Even reapers don't know that.

The suspected killer

was Sakura Aoi who had a Death Note.

It wasn't Ryuzaki who killed her.
