Synopsis: There exists a world set apart from ours. It's filled with Shinigami - gods of death or perhaps they should be called demons. They have lived for a very long time and they are very bored. Each Shinigami possesses a notebook called a Death Note which has the power to kill any human whose name is written inside. If a Shinigami accidentally drops their Death Note in the human world then whichever human picks it up will become the owner and have the power to kill humans. The Shinigami named Ryuk manages to get his hands on a second Death Note and decides to drop it in the human world. This is the story of what happens afterwards.
|Ryuk in the Shinigami world|
Light doesn't know what to make of the notebook and considers the implications of it's 'rules'. What if it's real and how can writing someone's name in a notebook possibly kill them? He decides to test it out after seeing a news broadcast of a man has taken several children hostage and the police are trying to save them. The news broadcast shows the man's name and face so Light has exactly what the Death Note specified.
