I just want to say that it was the first time they used a cheap trick to stitch up the plot. I am talking about that moment when Near was looking through the videos with Kiyomi Takada and suddenly found out that Teru Mikami is the X Kira, as Near named him. That was so unrealistic that I felt that I have to point that out.
There is a lot of other unrealistic stuff about Near. I know that a detective in this show has to have some obsessive hobby. But when L was eating sweats all the time it was ok. In fact sweats do help your thinking process, so, why not. But this boy is playing with toys. That is just so off. The whole point of playing with toys is to immerge into a fantasy world. Try to play with a toy while thinking about your schedule for the next week. You will see that it doesn’t go well together. In fact, if you are a grown up person, playing with toys is kind of hard, because your attention is attracted by the real world. And if you are not a grown up person, I don’t see how you can be of any help in a real investigation. Let’s be honest, investigation is not a chess play, you need to have a lot of knowledge about the world to do that sort of thing. How can a kid that spend all his time playing be of any use there?
Ok, ranting is done. I am still planning on writing a post about detectives in the Death Note and my reaction on the series in general. Hopefully I’ll do it soon. See you then (^_^)/
