Death Note Lore /Information:
In Tokyo, an intelligent yet disaffected high-school student named Light Yagami finds the “Death Note”, a mysterious black notebook which can kill anyone as long as the user knows both the target’s name and face. After verifying that the notebook works and initially being terrified of its god-like abilities, Light begins to consider the possibilities of the Death Note’s abilities and sets out to create a utopian world without crime, killing numerous high-profile Japanese criminals, before eventually targeting international criminals and felons around the world. Five days after discovering the notebook, Light is visited by Ryuk, a “Shinigami,” beings inspired by the Japanese god of death and the Death Note’s previous owner. Ryuk, who is invisible to anyone who has not touched the Death Note, reveals that he dropped the notebook into the human world out of boredom and is amused by Light’s actions.
Writer Tsugumi Ohba had no particular themes in mind for Death Note. When pushed, he suggested: “Humans will all eventually die and never come back to life, so let’s give it our all while we’re alive”.He went on to say that “no human has the right to pass judgment on another’s actions. No one should play God”. He said that Near’s climactic speech about good and evil was rooted in his own beliefs.
