This has got to be the best manga that I've ever read ^^ SYNOPSIS: Yagami Light is a young but bright high school student who has until recently led a boring and uneventful life. That changed very quickly when he found a strange notebook with the title "Death Note" lying on the ground one day. It wasn't until later that he realized that this "Death Note" was the tool of a shinigami (god of death in Japanese) from another world named Ryuk, and that it had the power to kill whoever's name was written on its pages, so long as the writer knew the victim's face as well. Light realises his ability to kill whomever he wishes, and he uses it to begin a "cleansing" of the world from evil. It does not take the police long to realise that somebody is responsible for the mysterious deaths of criminals, and he is then soon hunted by the Japanese police force and a mysterious detective known as "L". So as Light works towards his "perfect" world, devoid of crime and injustice (and with him as leader), L works to catch the mysterious murderer, dubbed "Kira" by the press and end the increasingly senseless deaths of criminals and anyone who gets too close to the truth. L and Light soon begin a cat and mouse chase to see who will be the first to have their personalities exposed...

Oh by the way, it's already out in the bookstore. :mellow:

I actually only read a few chapters, but it was really interesting. That blue guy (I forgot his name) looks kinda freaky, but whatever.

[edit]

Yeah, I got this book when I went to Borders. They had a buy 4 get 1 free deal on manga, so I chose this as my free one cuz my friend kept bugging me to read it.

But yeah, it's really good, and I've only read one volume so far =/
