  • Dang... Light is evil! Did you see the look on his face at the end? Wow!

    9.5
    The plot's moving along steadily, and with Misa in the picture, things will start to get more interesting.



    Seems like things are advancing in Light's favour. Now Light has Misa as his own personal puppet and he gets to use the Shinigami eyes without having to give up half of his life.



    Unfortunately, Misa pledged complete loyalty to Light to such an extreme that she gave up her Death Note to him. She exposed her vulnerabilities to him, and therefore is going to get herself manipulated by him. But I guess if two people have power, they would eventually destroy each other. So Light's domination over Misa is necessary in order for their relationship to work.moreless
  • Just reassuring the main character's pure evil.

    8.7
    Kira and the Second Kira meet in this episode, teaming up in the fight for Light's justice. Light has gained a valuable asset that will be utilized many times in the future and get him out of sticky situations with ease, however, every power has its drawbacks. Just what these are will be revealed with time.



    The American voice actor for Misa made her seem what the fans stereotype her as: blonde. When compared to other episodes, she sounds extremely childish and thoughtless in this episode. It was rather disappointing, as she is in truth a brilliant character. Hopefully this won't continue in the future.



    I give this episode an 8.7/10.moreless

    The two Kiras meet

    i thought that things were rushed for the second Kira meeting up with Kira. but it turned out good. This storyline now means that its possible that L will die.

    i know light is useing her but i thing he will fall in love with misa.



    this is how they met:

    The task force receives another reply from the second Kira; with this one is enclosed a diary hinting that the two Kiras should meet in Aoyama. Matsuda and Light go undercover to Aoyama,but nothing happens the second Kira, also in disguise, is watching him. After finding out his name and looking up his address, she goes to meet with him herself.She knew Light was Kira since she has the shinigami eyes: she can see the name and lifespan of every human she sees, but if the person also has a Death Note she cannot see their lifespan.This epic story is only getting more and more interesting with each new episode hope you like the episode i did!moreless
  • Not my favourite because we now know that L is most likely going to die...

    6.8
    This has been the slowest and most boring for me :-/ although i spose it had to be... i just thought that things were rushed for the second Kira meeting up with Kira. This storyline now means that its possible that L will die. I want to know if he will eventually become to love the fake Kira? It is possible but then again he may just her as a pawn for his own doings. This episode also involves the new shingami who Kira will now be able to speak to and find out information about the death note and other things that his own shingami wont be able to. SO this episode has a few flaws in my eyes and has ruined Ls part in it all as i was looking forward for seeing if Kira would be caught soon but obviously not. Enjoy the episode.. i didnt how ever.moreless
  • The two Kiras meet.

    9.6
    The task force receives another reply from the second Kira; with this one is enclosed a diary hinting that the two Kiras should meet in Aoyama. Matsuda and Light go undercover to Aoyama, but nothing suspicious happens. Unbeknownst to Light, the second Kira, also in disguise, is watching him. After finding out his name and looking up his address, she goes to meet with him herself. Yes, that's right, Misa Amane is a little stalker. She definitely looked the part.

    She knew Light was Kira since she has the shinigami eyes: she can see the name and lifespan of every human she sees, but if the person also has a Death Note she cannot see their lifespan.

    She meets with Light and asks to help him in any way possible; since she has the shinigami eyes she would be of great use to him. She explains that her parents were killed by robbers one year ago; at the trial they were declared innocent, but Kira judged them later. Thus, she felt the need to find Kira and thank him.

    I guess it's just Amane's good luck that Kira is an attractive teenage boy.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (4)

    • Altered Scene: During L's meeting with the Task Force, after he addresses the issue with what action to take with the diary entry, the manga also mentions how he wishes to further strengthen their security by having each member destroy any picture of themselves, including those from home and school (as he has done) as a precaution. He also asks them to avoid going out in public as police officers as much as possible.

    • Look Closely: When the investigation team receives the Journal entry from the second Kira, the entry of May 28th, 2006 says "The PS3, which is supposed to be better than the PS2 is coming out. Reminder!"

    • Death Note Rule Revealed: A person with Death God eyes can see the name and life span of any human, unless they possess a death note.

    • Listen Closely: In the scene when the second Kira is looking up Light on her computer, you can hear Alumina (the ED theme) in the background.

  • QUOTES (8)

    • Light: (about Matsuda) This is my cousin, Taro. It's his first time ever in Tokyo and he wants to see Aoyama and Roppongi. So I figured the least we could do is show him a good time. I'm count on you guys! Oh yeah, he also told me he's looking for a girlfriend. So, does anyone wanna volunteer?
      Matsuda: Hey, I never said that!

    • Misa: (seeing Light) Moon Yagami, is it? You're the only one whose lifespan I can't see. He is Kira! I can't believe it! And never thought it would be this easy to find him.

    • Misa: Ok, Rem, time to go.
      Rem: You finally found him and now you just want to leave?
      Misa: Well I can't go up to him and say "Hi, Kira! Nice to meet you. I'm the one who sent you the messages" with all these people around. I know his name now, so I can easily find about all about him. After all, it's such a unique name.

    • L: Anyway, someone like Asahi-san, whose eyes radiate with justice and valor, should definitely not go.
      Chief Yagami: Hmm...

    • Rem: Where are you going?
      Misa: To turn myself in!
      (She rings the doorbell at Light's house)
      Rem: Oh. Here...

    • Light: Why are you going so far for me?
      Misa: One year ago, my parents were killed by robbers right before my eyes. I never forgave them. The trial lasted a long time, but in the end they were declared innocent. And then...it was Kira who passed judgment upon those criminals. For me, Kira definitely exists. That's why, more than anything, I wanted to meet you. I wanted to thank you!

    • Light: (talking to Misa) I understand even though I can't force my feelings. I'll try my best to be your boyfriend. To meet me, to become my power, you sacrificed half your life to get the eyes. You will be a powerful weapon.

    • Misa: (talking to Light) By any means... By any means I wanted to meet you. Please hold me tightly!!

  • NOTES (3)

  • ALLUSIONS (1)

    • Look Closely: The search engine Light uses to look up the Blue Notebook is called "Gentle," a play on the actual search engine "Google" especially when considering the similarity between its search results page and logo's color scheme. The Gentle search engine is used in later episodes as well, but this is its first appearance.
