FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (6)

    • Altered Scene: Higuchi's Call

      Before entering Yoshida Productions, the manga has Higuchi try to call Misa a second time, only to receive her voice mail once more.

    • Altered Scene: The Guard

      Before Higuchi enters the Yotsuba Security Room, the manga has him request permission from the building's guard first. The guard allows him access, but is confused as to why he would request such a thing in the first place.

    • Omitted Scene: Aizawa and Ide

      The anime cut out any parts from the manga that had either of these two talk.

      Once L and Light discover who was behind the police car barrier, the manga cuts to a short scene with Aizawa and Ide--the two policemen who decided against working with L in the Task Force. Aizawa thanks Ide for allowing him to lead all the men he recruited to secretly continue working on the Kira Case. However, Ide believes that he should be the one thanking Aizawa: for someone who learned so much about Kira through the Task Force, it was quite the feat for him to trust the other policemen and agree in leading them in the first place.

      The two continue, saying how excited they were when they saw the supposedly dead Matsuda on Sakura TV and how much more excited they became when L sent them the order to stay away from a certain driver in a speeding Porsche, who L has concluded to be Kira. Aizawa even admits to shedding a tear upon hearing the order and ends the scene, saying how regardless of what happens next, they can be proud that they have been pursuing Kira all this time.

      Later, After Watari shoots Higuchi's car tire, the manga has Aizawa radio the other police cars, ordering them to stand down until they receive L's orders, as this is as far as they can move on their own.

    • Altered Scene: Higuchi's Monologue

      Upon finally being cornered by both L and the police, Higuchi decides to take himself hostage. As he does this in the manga, he has one final inner monologue, wondering why he is even doing such a thing. He thinks to himself that his life is over as he begins to squeeze the trigger, only to be interrupted by Watari's rifle.

    • Look Closely: The police officer who pulls over Higuchi is named Yukita Shiraba. "Shiraba" is actually a play on the word "shirabai," meaning "motorcycle policeman."

    • Look Closely: The combination to the door on Yoshida productions is 4-4-5.

  • QUOTES (12)

    • Light: It's over...
      L: Yes... it's over.

    • Watari: (rifle aimed at Higuchi) Stop right there...

    • Higuchi: (thinking) Just like I thought. It was a trap! Police cars with tinted windows?! So all that stuff about the cops not going after Kira was a lie! They've been preparing for this..!
      Watari: What's happening? I thought we told the police not to get involved with the arrest.
      Light: The only one who would do this is--
      L: Yes, you must be right...
      (ex-Task Force member Aizawa and Ide are shown patiently waiting with the other police cars)

    • L: Watari, are you ready?
      Watari: (holding a rifle) Yes.
      L: (handing a gun to Light) Light, I think you should hold on to this for self defense. This is Kira we're after.
      Light: No thanks. Firearms aren't allowed in Japan.
      L: Y'know, I'm sure your father would say the exact same thing.

    • Light: I didn't realize you could pilot a helicopter. That's incredible!
      L: Well, you could figure it out with intuition...

    • (as the plans are finalized to capture Higuchi)
      L: So then, Light, what say we go and join the fun as well?

    • Mogi: That motorcycle cop just rear-ended that truck! He's dead!
      Light: He's dead?! By accident?!
      L: This is very bad...

    • L: Everyone! It's too dangerous to allow further action by Higuchi! Let's bring him in! I believe he has the same powers as the second Kira; he is able to kill just by looking at someone's face! Please keep this in mind when you move in to arrest him!

    • (monitoring Higuchi)
      Light: He's arrived at Yoshida Productions.
      L: The show is about to begin...

    • Wedy: (handing a gun to Soichiro) Aiber doesn't like guns so I'm the only one carrying one.
      Soichiro: I'm no longer a police officer. I could never forgive myself if I held one. You aren't supposed to have one in Japan either.
      Wedy: Stubborn as always, aren't you?

    • Higuchi: In that case, I'll settle for a short life… Rem, let's make the deal.

    • L: Now, how do you kill… show me!
