About Ryuk from Death Note

Ryuk was an excellent shinigami Japanese series character in the manga series. After robbing Sidoh of a second Death Notebook, he acquired two. Furthermore, Ryuk was pursuing a particularly selfish objective.

As a result, he can engage in anything for his amusement. Ryuk is quite tired in the shinigami world. As a result, he abandoned the Death Notebook in the world of humans and met Light Yagami.

A talented high school kid named Light Yagami takes it. He uses it to try to establish and control a utopia that has been freed from evil, with him serving as the God in charge.

Ryuk utilized Light figuratively. Everything seemed like fun to Ryuk. He didn’t like or dislike Light. He handed the Death Notebook to Light and relished his adventures with it.

What is the most famous quote from Ryuk?

1. “Same Old Thing, Day After Day.”

2. “I Can Understand Because You Can Buy Apples With That Money.”

3. “I Twist My Body Up Like A Pretzel And Do Handstands.”

4. “Give Me Half Of Your Remaining Lifetime, And You Can Have A Shinigami’s Eyes.”

5. “Humans Are A Riot!”
