Death Note, Volume 5

Author: Tsugumi Ohba
Series: Death Note #5
Rating: 2 / 5 stars
Verdict: Borrow

Well, I can only say that I hope things get back on track in the next volume or two.  The greatest part about Death Note is the battle of wits between L and Light.  Now, Light has given up the Death Note, and lost all of his memories of being Kira.  Instead, one of the two Death Notes has fallen into the hands of a corporate big wig, who - along with another seven elite, high status members of his company - is using the Death Note to kill off key players at other companies in order to up their own company profile.

Basically, Death Note lost a lot of its charm in this novel.  Misa is dim and obnoxious, Kira is giving heart attacks to corporate officials, and Light can't remember ever being Kira and is helping L willingly instead of with duplicity now.  Don't really like the new direction the series is taking in this volume.  Hopefully, Light when remember somehow, and we can get things back on track.
