Format: Paperback
Death Note continues to get better with this installment. I am unsure why other reviewers' believe that Death Note is becoming predictable. In addition, I hope that more people exist who think that someone other than L is the best character. Just because characters die doesn't mean the author has become bored with them. It means their purpose in the story has been fulfilled. Oh well...on with the actual review.

The story is growing in complexity and I assure you will reach an amazing climax. As the back of the volume states, Light's maneuvers bring him closer to ultimate victory, but also bring Near and Mello closer to catching him. The ending is a bit of a cliff-hanger and for readers who side with my favorite character, you'll certainly have a plethora a great scenarios to consider until volume 10 is released. After reading this volume I couldn't wait to know how it ended so I labored through a friend's Japanese copies. Don't stop reading now! The plans of Light, man become God, will certainly keep you on the edge of your seat again (and for 3 more volumes).

I am not a manga fan. However, there this series sits on my bookshelf LOL It's well written, the characters are engaging and the artwork is very satisfying - I read every volume front-to-back in one go because I enjoyed it so much!

Death Note is getting more and more exciting. In this volume, Near ups the ante on Light and makes it apparent that he believes that Light is Kira. Light is determined to win and struggles with the fact he must maintain his cool and appear innocent while plotting the demise of Near and Mellow.

Bravely marching forward towards the end of the series... but not there yet! Spoilers for those who haven't read this far, of course, blah blah blah...

Another major turning point, not just for Light, but for Kira, Near, Mello, and the Japanese task force. The task force's last attempt to storm Mello and his mafia gang's hideout failed miserably, thanks to interference from shinigami Sidoh. But when Light's father, Soichiro, unexpectedly makes the deal with Ryuk for shinigami eyes, they're able to break into the hideout and corner Mello. But he isn't L's heir just because of his scary looks... Mello manages to escape, taking Soichiro out in the process. We discover that there's a spy for Mello in the SPK's midst (Near seems well aware of who it is). Mello and Near form a shaky partnership by sharing information and then separate to see who can catch Kira first and avenge L's death. The U.S. decides to take no action against Kira. Good old Demegawa of Sakura TV is proclaimed the spokesman of Kira, driving crowds into a frenzy as they hunt down those who would go against Kira (watch out SPK!). And Near sows seeds of mistrust (doesn't that sound fancy?) in the Japanese task force. WHEW!

This was actually a pretty cool volume. Like I said in my last review, I really enjoy watching Mello because he seems best at catching Light off-guard. It's nice to have some emotion register for these characters - and it was sad to see Soichiro pass on. Watching Light at his father's side as he dies, you really understand the depths he's sunk to as Kira. Soichiro's last moments are spent being pressured by Light to write Mello's name in the Death Note, and he refuses. We also see that Kira has been accepted by several world powers and is becoming more and more revered by the people.

Things get crazier still.

Light, running a fake investigation into himself has to deal with both Near and Mello, as well as the US government and the criminal overlords. Not to mention a not too bright Shinigami. Again, not everyone will get out of this one alive. This series continues to entertain as the more they find out, the more complex it seems to get.
