Words can not describe the's best to say that it was unexpected and perfectly assembled. I'm just sad it's over. SPOILER: Light becomes the kind of person Kira would bring justice to, he did prove many truths in his speech, however. I am also sad that Mello died, and did not get to work with Near as L, since only together they can surpass L, but then there would be no element of self-sacrifice. I like Near, but I really wish Mello inherited L's title WITH him. He sincerely deserved what L left him, since he is equal to Near. I appreciate that Near mentions that the SPK and Japanese Task Force's lives were saved and Kira was caught successfully because of Mello.

The ending was VERY disappointing. I loved the series but it was runied when they killed off the best character in the end! I HOPE YOU DIE RYUK!!!
Overall, one of the best manga I ever read. XD
