L and Light are back and still trying to solve the identity of Kira who is murdering criminals in his own vigilante justice. Light has given up his Death Note and his memory of being Kira and is now working full time with L in his bid to solve the mystery.

There is a new Kira in town. This time it is a organisation that is using Kira to kill people who increase their money. There is a small group working together in the company and no one knows which one of them has the link to Kira. It's a precautionary measure and it makes things more difficult for L and his team. They are now all working without the support of the police and one member takes it upon himself to do his own undercover snooping which puts the whole operation in jepody as well as his life.

The mystery keeps getting more and more complicated and there is still no resolution in sight. This felt more like a filler and the beginning of a new thread rather than really moving the main plot forwards. Hopefully Light will rediscover his Death Note and the Shinigami will become more involved in the story again.
