When I was watching episodes 9 and 10 I thought that I knew where the series were going. I thought that L will continue to tighten the rope around Lights neck for ten episodes or so, and then he will catch him. I didn’t believe that the entire series could possible be about Light and L playing with each other. I still don’t. But anyway, the series got me with the introduction of the second Kira. I was very surprised. And the reason was that I came to expect the show to be realistic, except for the part about the Death Note. So, this fantasy-like plot twist was quite a sudden one.
I can’t say that I like the story of the second Kira, it is a little bit too cheap. But, at the same time, if generalize the situation, that was exactly what should have happen. I mean that Kira should started getting help from his followers. The true power of the leader is the people whom he leads. And Kira is a leader, of a sort. He is a like a revolutionary and that attracts people. So, that only part that I would complain of is the fact that there happens to be two death Notes in the human world at the same time, and both in Japan.
I am very interested to see what happens next. Let me make a wild prediction (and give you a reason to laugh at me). First of all, I think that the identity of the true Kira will be revealed during the first half of the series. I actually think that Light will die or get caught at the episode 18 or 19, maybe a little later. I think so, because that is the middle of the show, and I think that they will make it go different from that point. I wouldn’t be such a popular series, if it wasn’t very well done. And that is why I believe that they will change the show somewhat after the first half passes. Also, I think that Light’s Death Note will go to L. That is logical and that would make a decent plot twist, so I hope they will do it. Also, I think that Light will obtain shinigami’s eyes before the end.
Now, I don’t really know what will happen, and if my predictions are wrong you may say so to me, but please, try not to spoil the series for me. See you (^_^)/
