Death Note, Volume 6

Author: Tsugumi Ohba
Series: Death Note #6
Rating: 2.5 / 5 stars
Verdict: Borrow

We still seem stuck on this side plot of the eight business men, although we do finally get to know which of them is the new Kira.  In addition, Misa touches her old notebook, revealing her old buddy to her, even though she doesn't regain any of her lost memories which adds some more complexity to the plot.

I am still not sure where the plot is going though.  L and Light still seem to be working on the same team to track down Kira, even when the rest of the group splits up because they don't agree with L's methods.  And L is still pretty certain that Light is the original Kira, so even though Light seems to have planned all of this out, I am at a loss as to how any of this has benefited him at all.  Perhaps his plan just isn't going the way he expected it to?

Again, hopefully the battle of the wits between L and Light will return soon... as in, the next volume soon.
