His keikaku's are probably more elaborate than anything I can concoct, but seriously, the ENTIRE series I was just like "this would not have happened if you didn't kill that guy".

He was baited so easily. He knew how the death note worked, why didn't he second guess the fact that L appeared on TV showing his name and face. Even if L didn't know abuot the death note why would Light assume no one else did?

Again arrogance and pride. With all that intelligence your pond to have arrogance and pride in spades

It's not.

I think the author was just like "shit, I can't have him win, that's a terrible ending". So he made a "new L" and had Light lose.

It's so sad. He literally had the cure to the cancer killing the Earth, and he threw it all away because he's an idiot.

>>101866301
Light's justification was that he wanted to send a message to the world that anyone who tried to find him would be swiftly executed, and doing it during a live conference on every channel is a good way of saying "this isn't a trick. You'll die the moment you speak against me."

The logic seemed right at the time.

what you should do is use the death note to create plausible but unlikely situations happen repeatedly for people who are already suffering terminal illnesses

for example, have them win the lottery repeatedly, or if they're educated enough have them work and solve academic problems

with that you can more directly do good in the world rather then some stupid round about bullshit about divine punishment

If she was less clingy to Light I would have liked her a lot more. It's one thing to respect him for killing her parents killer, but to go all out fangirl for him was just too much and was not fun to listen to/ watch. Her character had some really good potential that I think was underused.

The death note only allows you to manipulate the circumstances of death.

You would only be allowed to say "buy the winning lottery ticket, get excited, run into the road and get hit by a car" or something to that effect.

If it's not directly related to the death of a person it won't come true, or if it's just absurd they'll just die of a heart attack.

But this is wrong, shueisha killed Death Note's ending. The mangaka are constantly pressured to continue popular series and not end them prematurely. Hell, they practically apologized for this mistake in Bakuman.
>>
>>101869664
The original person to reply to you here.

You specifically stated "win the lottery repeatedly" with strong implications of that being per person, since you never identified it otherwise.
also, the death note can't give someone a lottery win, and if they don't play to begin with they would just die. If they did play it's unsure if they'd just live until they died from another cause, just die, or eventually get lucky and die.
The note can not give them the win just to kill them.

>>101869805
I am not the person who posted the question, stop implying things.
Regardless of any method it did not state a size for the note, it states there is enough room for one name. It is very clear in that fact. It did not state college ruled sized piece for a single name, now did it?
Stop playing games of intellect and go back to sleep.

>>101866301

I saw more or less where his plans where going till he killed L but seriously that was absolutely unnecessary.

He had the power of a god and Kira got recognition pretty fast so his 2 objectives where already doable with no need whatsoever to relpy "no you wont" to a simple detective that said "i´m gonna catch you".

His 2 objectives being "to kill every criminal in existence" and "to be acknowledged for that task as a god".
By playing L´s game he essentially said "okay L you are at my level" and "fuck it, i´ll kill any faggot that tries to get me not only criminals" but it´s alright because he is an straight AAA student...

>>101873349
Nowhere could be interpreted as the Shinigami world. The whole point Ryuuk dropped the Notebook was because he was bored and saw his world as nothing. Ryuuk wrote the rules in the Death Note, perhaps he wanted to warn the individual that picked it up they would suffer the same fate he did, which is sitting in the Shinigami world all day doing and not doing a thing.

In hindsight was Death Note a good anime?
All I remember from it is how edgy it was.

I sided with Light. He had the nerve to change the world, even if it was through dubious methods.

Death Note fans, Ladies and Gentleman.

Light was basically the personification of being wrong, both on a morally and rational level. This show was probably the most pretentious shit I've watched (inb4 but I HAVE watched it). Both Light and L made so many obvious mistakes, yet were portrayed as so intelligent it was both cringewothy and hilarious.

In setting up a world where he, and only he, was the supreme judge. Do away with courts, due process, liberty, because one 20 year old psychopath wants to play god and knows the way the entire world should work. Light committed crimes, he had to be punished for them. He showed that he didn't care about collateral, and even if you never hurt someone, even if you just SPOKE against him, he'd kill you. That's big brother Orwellian shit right there, and indefensible.
Light was a bad guy. There were other bad guys, sure, but he was one of them.

OK. Since a shinigami dies if it kills to prolong a life, shouldn't watori's death had killed Rem?

No it doesn't. Magna cum laude is a phrase taken word for word, meaning for meaning from latin and then ritualized. It still means the same thing.

I'll grant that if you want to get deep into it, it's a more nebulous concept (it can be used in special circumstance as roughly "when" for example) but the basic, common meaning is "with" and it was that way when used in original latin.

Morally:
What "morally right" means is highly subjective. That is why there isn't any general model of it that is accepted by the majority of people. So I can only argue from my own point of view here, which is mostly based on the consequences of certain actions. Now what consequences would Lights actions realistically cause? A world without any crimes? No, that's bullshit. People who commit major crimes like murder, or rape don't do this because they think "Oh well, if I get caught I only get like 10 years in prison so it's ok". They do it because they either think that they won't be caught, or because they didn't think about the consequences in the first place. That is also why the USA, despite having the death penalty have no lower crime rate than most european nations. The only crimes that probably would be prevented significantly are minor crimes like thievery. Now you can ask yourself if you want to achieve this by killing hundreds and thousands of people, as I said before even innocent ones. If you really won't this I can't argue with you anymore.

>Why are you on /a/?

I'm glad you've thought this out, and I mostly agree with you. That being said, I still sida with Light, because he's far more enrertaining as a character. Would I follow his footsteps?

Why does society always make evil people to be so intelligent? It's like JRPG and anime has this social indocrination agenda where intelligence and logic is frowned upon, and every logical thing would be considered edgy such as getting rid of the oldfags, criminals, and the undesirable even though they are a drain on society.

It has tradition, and under historic circumstances it is a sound decision. Not all societies can afford to feed and guard their criminals/elderly.

I'd like to see the death note in the hands of somebody who's intelligent, but lacks moral purpose. i.e. they're just doing it for the fun of competing with whatever detective's chasing them (probably near).

No, I just don't get why it's considered a bad thing even if it makes sense logically. Humans advocate being educated and intelligent for the populace but when it's proven through science and statistic that say oldfags are bad to society humans revert back to their primitive ways of muh feelings.

That's Light's fault, Light's a sociopath. Ryuk has to follow these rules and Light never made an attempt.

Ryuk was bored and wanted entertainment, so he sought it from Light, even willing to include him so long as fun was had. Light wanted a tool to use and only engaged with Ryuk to shut him up or answer his questions.

Ryuk was bro-tier, Light was that faggot friend that bums a ride to the store with you and drops an energy drink in your cart expecting you to buy it for him. Fucking prick.

I always laugh when people spout muh feelings like liberty because if you think about it there is no such thing as liberty or freedom, or free will. The minute you're born you're indoctrinated and forced to do the bidding of the people around you, and if you want to kill yourself you get locked up in a crazy house.

Defeating the entire point of free will and "freedom".

>He just doesn't seem like some one that would be bros with a human.
Ryuk's defining phrase is "humans are so interesting". He was very entertained by L and their group, and if you recall, when he was stuck with them having touched the Death Note, he STILL acted like a bro to them. Making snarky comments and the like. He was fun.

Couldn't Light have gotten away with the hole thing in the end by telling them that no jury would convict him and explaining that if they took justice into their own hands and killed him then they'd be just the same as Kira?

It seems to me that for such a smooth talker he really missed an opportunity. Or perhaps the point is that he wasn't thinking straight after being wrong.
>>
>>101880276
He was entertained by them but if anything that would make him less likely to actually be real friends with a human. Making snarky comments and doing nothing while someone has a problem isn't being a bro. You're confusing a character being fun to him actually being a bro.
