It was a heart attack.

Did someone write her name in a Death Note?

There must be another Death Note around...

Only 6 Death Notes are

allowed in the human world.

If I can trust Beppo,

there's only 6 Death Notes.

So 5 more people have the Notes?

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

Once all the Death Notes are in vaults...

Even if reapers circulate more Death Notes

they couldn't kill anyone.

What's going on?

What's that?

Try to restart it.

I am...

Who's that?


I control the lives and deaths of all humans.

I will

purify this world of vices.

Kira will make a peaceful new world.

I am


The Kira video

is a computer virus that's spread worldwide.

It hijacked computer terminals and smartphones.

The hacker's method

is like the so-called Pacifist Hacker

who cyber-attacks states sponsoring terrorism.

Kira, the man in the video

might be behind the cyber-terrorism.

This is the video.

I am


I control the lives and deaths of all humans.

I have the power.

And to bring peace to the world

I eliminated fools.

Kira is needed in the new world.

I am




Isn't Light Yagami dead?

He is.

I was there when he died 10 years ago.

Any ideas?

It might be digitally manipulated.

The focus should be

on who'd have Light's image.

Only a few officers knew his true identity.

The power means the Death Note.

You doubt us?

That's my job.

We don't trust you either.

We don't need your cooperation.

Suits me! If I need you,

I might put you to use.

That's enough!

I'm more concerned that only I can see Ryuk.

Why's that?

You touched Ryuk's Death Note 10 years ago.

It means that the new Kira

has Ryuk's Death Note.

Light Yagami might be the new Kira.

Impossible. He's dead.

Yeah? How about the Death Notes and reapers?
