About Light Yagami From Death Note

The story was written by Tsugumi Ohba with illustrations from Takeshi Obabta. The series set itself apart from other popular anime franchises, with Light and L having an intriguing game of cat and mouse with the Death Note. In the beginning, Light is someone that’s a bit soft-spoken but is generally not a person looking to harm others. However, when he gains the Death Note early on in the series, he sees himself as someone that can impart his view of just the world.

Using the pages within the Death Note allows him to write people’s names inside and orchestrate how they will die during this phase of his life. When he gains the Death Note, Light becomes a narcissist who wants to outsmart detectives and make them feel like they can’t rival his genius. Conversely, Light acts the exact opposite to people he talks to in his daily life.
