Series : #4 Death Note
Format : Manga
Reason for Reading : Manga Challenge, to continue with the series

L is still trying to figure out the identity of killer Kira when what looks to be a second fake Kira shows up. They also have a death note and a Shinigami and are causing havoc as they have taken the deal of using the Shinigami eyes to see people's names. Light (the real Kira) is also looking for the fake Kira and is trying to find them before L before they manage to reveal too much and let people know about the death notes and Shinigami.

The second Kira is Misa Amano who loves Kira for bringing justice to her parents murderer. When she was younger both of her parents were killed in front of her and the case kep getting delayed. The murderer was one of the criminals Kira brought "justice" to and he has become her hero and knight in shining armour. She was also saved by a Shinigami who had fallen in love with her from his world and by prolonging her life he fortit his own.

She uses her eyes to figure out Kira's real identity and demands Light become her boyfriend. He is not too pleased at this as he is dating a string of girls, but relents to use her eyes to find out L's real name. Can they kill L or is he still somehow another step ahead of them both. It's quite a complicated installment but still very gripping. I was a little annoyed by Misa. I felt sorry for her, but she was still quite annoying and clingy. I loved that L now sees Light as his friend, it makes the tension between them even greater. I can't wait to read the next volume...!

God to hear the series is still going strong. I'm hoping to get to the first two next month.
