Interesting Questions, Facts, and Information
Light wrote his name in the death note. When the police were heading to Higuchi's car, Higuchi pulled a gun out threatening to shoot himself in the head. However Watari managed to shoot the gun out of Higuchi's hands and the police arrested him. They found the death note in his car. By touching the death note, they were able to see Rem and they read the rules of the death note. They found out that this was the source of Kira's power. When Light touched the death note, all of his memories were restored and he knew his master plan was a success. When no one was looking at him, Light wrote Higuchi's name in the death note, thereby killing him, which was all part of his plan. After Higuchi's death, Light became the owner of the death note again.
The rest of the episode was Light narrating his plan. He planned on having both him and Misa relinquishing their death notes with the intent of getting them back. He buried his death note in the middle of the woods and he told Rem to give Misa's death note to an ambitious person, Higuchi. He planned on working with L to find this new Kira, and he would gain L's trust. When Light touched the death note again as planned, his memories were restored, however he could not keep this death note as the taskforce would use it as evidence. That is why the second death note was buried, Light could use that one to continue his role as Kira. He had Rem write in the death note before the following fake rules that were going to prove that Light and Misa were innocent under any accusations as being Kira, "If the owner of a Death Note does not use the notebook after 13 days time, he or she will die" and "If the Death Note is burned, torn up, or otherwise rendered useless, any people who have touched the Death Note will die". With Light and Misa having no contact with the death note for more than 13 days, since they were both confined, and neither of them had died, that would prove to L that neither of them were Kira. L agreed and he finally took the handcuffs off of Light.
Red. Even though the type of car was not revealed, it looked similar to a Porsche 911. L's plan to catch Higuchi trying to kill someone involved Sakura TV airing a three hour special television show where an eyewitness would reveal Kira's identity. With Reiji still willing to work with L, L told him to call Higuchi to watch this show. In order for him to believe that this anonymous person's claims were valid, L planned for the screen that blocked that person's face to "accidentally" fall, revealing his face, and that anonymous person would be Matsuda. Higuchi knew he had to kill him as he knew Matsuda saw him in his Kira meeting with the other executives. L had Wedy install cameras and wire taps in Higuchi's house and cars so that they could see how he reacted to this. Higuchi tried to call people to find out Matsuda's real name as he only knew his name as Matsui. He did not find out and he drives recklessly to the Sakura TV station to kill Matsuda with a gun. L's team already knew he was on his way and they had Matsuda and the rest of the Sakura TV workers leave the station setting up the trap to catch Higuchi. Higuchi managed to escape but he was finally caught when he was blocked on the highway by many police cars. From a helicopter, Watari shot Higuchi's tires and he finally surrendered.
Kyosuke Higuchi. After Misa showed L and the rest of the taskforce her cell phone conversation with Higuchi, L was confident enough to conclude that Higuchi was Kira. L did not want to apprehend him yet until he had proof of how Higuchi killed people. L decided to set up a trap for Higuchi to reveal himself. This plan would go into effect in the next episode, "Frenzy".
In the bathroom of the Yotsuba office. Rem was aware that Misa lost her memories so she tore a piece of the current Kira's death note, the same one that was owned by Misa before. When Misa touched the piece of the death note, her memories were restored even though she no longer owned that death note. Rem told Misa that she and Light were both Kira at one point but were no longer Kira. Rem then told Misa that when she goes back to see the Yotsuba executives, she would float behind the executive that was the current Kira. Misa then knew who that was and started flirting with him. She managed to have him admit that he was Kira with her cell phone. Misa was the first human to know who the current Kira was.
Light. Namikawa Reiji received the call. He was asked by L (Light) to delay the killings of the executives they were targeting by one month. He was also told that only Kira would be charged with all of these murders, the rest of the executives would be completely innocent despite their heavy involvement. With that in mind, Reiji cooperated with L (Light) and successfully delayed the killings.
Matsuda. Matsuda felt that he was looked down upon by the taskforce and he wanted to be more helpful to the group. Without telling anyone, he tried to spy on the Yotsuba Group on his own. The Yotsuba Group found out though and they were discussing if they should kill Matsuda or not. L told Matsuda that he would create a plan that would make the executives think he had died so they would not have to kill him. Matsuda pretended to jump off of an apartment building in front of the Yotsuba executives.
A con-artist and a thief. Aiba was a con-artist and Wedy was a thief. Aiba was used for communicating with Kira. He pretended that he was detective Geraldo Coil, one of L's many aliases. He was hired by the Yotsuba Group, the business that was suspected to be working with Kira, to investigate L. Wedy was hired to install cameras and wire taps so that the task force can watch and hear the Yotsuba executives from their building. Neither of these criminals had ever been convicted of a crime so they most likely would not be killed by Kira.
Fifty. Even though Light was confined having no knowledge of new criminals being charged, criminals were still being killed through heart attacks. The rest of the taskforce told L that with this still happening that there was no need to keep Light confined and that he was not Kira. L only released Light and Misa after he tested them. He had Souchiro Yagami, Light's father, drive Misa and Light and he told them that both of them would be executed and claiming that they had enough proof that both of them were Kira. By putting on this act, L was trying to see if either of them were Kira. If they were, one of them would have tried to kill Souichiro once they heard about their execution. Neither of them tried and L agreed to release them. L was still suspicious of Light and decided to handcuff himself to him. L would only release Light from the handcuffs once they caught Kira.
"Get rid of it". Even though it was not fully revealed at this point, Light had created a plan that would prove to L that he and Misa were innocent on any accusations that either one of them were Kira. By doing this, all of Light's memories of the death note would have disappeared. However, if he would ever touch the same death note again, his memories would be fully restored.
She had hair on the tape of the envelopes that contained the videos. Light was planning to use Misa and her shinigami eyes in order to kill L. He just needed Misa to see L's face, and she would know his real name. However, L apprehended her before she could tell Light his real name. Misa was held captive by L who was using intense interrogation tactics, she was tied to a wall and was blindfolded. Misa promised Light that she would never tell anyone that either of them were Kira. She couldn't handle the confinement and forfeited her ownership of her death note. Her memories of the death note had disappeared and she was no longer as scared as she no longer remembered why she was apprehended. She now believed that she was caught by a stalker. Even though her memories of the death note had disappeared, her feelings for Light had remained the same.
Rem would kill him first. While Light was trying to explain to Misa that they can not be seen in public he got frustrated and told her that if she did not cooperate that he could easily kill her. Rem then told Light that she would not allow it. Usually shinigami do not care about what happened to humans but since Rem inherited Gelus's love for Misa, Rem would do anything to protect Misa- even kill herself. Rem told Light that if Misa died before her expected life span that she would suspect that Light was involved some how and she would kill him. By doing this, Rem would be taking her own life as well.
Aoyama. Using her shinigami eyes, she spotted Light in a crowd, she noticed that he did not have a life span when she saw his name. She then knew that she found the original Kira. She contacted him later in the day to tell him that she was the second Kira. She proved it to him by showing her notebook and shinigami to him.
Falling in love with a human. Misa's shinigami, Rem, told her this. Rem explained how Misa found her death note. Shinigami can observe the human realm from their own realm. Gelus was the shinigami that fell in love with Misa. When he saw Misa in a dangerous situation, she was being confronted by a drunk man with a knife, he decided to kill the man to save Misa's life. Misa was originally supposed to be killed by that man but with Gelus protecting her, Misa's lifespan was extended. Shinigami were only allowed to take away human lives, not extend them. Extending their life would result in the death of the shinigami that extended it. Rem, witnessing Gelus's death, inherited his love for Misa. Rem was now willing to protect Misa under any circumstances, and that was very rare for a shinigami to do.
Ukita. One of the major Japanese television stations, Sakura TV, was broadcasting videos supposedly created by Kira. However, Light did not make these videos but someone else did who had another death note. This second Kira had the power of the shinigami eyes, something that Light did not have. That was how the second Kira was able to immediately kill Ukita when he arrived at Sakura TV. The second Kira was later revealed to be a teenage model named Misa Amane who falls in love with Light. She made these videos hoping that she would be able to meet the original Kira.
Tennis. Both of them were avid tennis players. Light had even won the junior high championship in Japan. When L was younger, he even won a junior tennis championship in England. Light won the set they played in six games to four.
Ryuga. L, still being suspicious of Light, decides to meet him face to face. He enrolled in the same university as Light, To-Oh University. The name he enrolled himself as was Hideki Ryuga, that was also the same name of a Japanese pop singer. When L first talks to Light, he immediately told Light that he was L. Both Light and L act like they were friends but they were actually investigating each other. L was trying to see if Light was Kira and Light was trying to find out L's real name in order to kill him.
Apples. Even though shinigami do not need to eat to survive, Ryuk had an addiction to apples found in the human realm. He says they were much tastier and juicier than apples in the shinigami realm. When Ryuk does not eat apples he does experience withdrawal symptoms. He gets irritable towards Light and he twists his body around in strange ways.
Naomi Misora. When Naomi noticed that her fiancee died after he revealed his name to someone he was investigating, she suspected that Kira killed him and she wanted to tell the taskforce that. When she met Light and told him about it, Light knew that if she revealed her thoughts to the taskforce that it would not take long for the police to find out that he was Kira. Light wanted to kill her but he needed her name. She gave him an alias, Shoku Maki. When Light wrote that name down in his death note nothing happened and he figured out that she gave him a fake name. In order to get her real name Light lied and told her that he was part of the taskforce as well and he would like her to join. Naomi then admitted that she gave him a fake name and told him her real name. Before she died, Light told her that he was Kira. Light does eventually join the taskforce but at this point he was not in it yet.
Ryuzaki. The police and Ryuzaki met every week in a hotel room. In order to remain discrete, the hotel location switched every week. Ryuzaki demanded that there would be no records of any of their meetings and that included written notes. Ryuzaki said "everything must be recorded by memory".
|How many members of the Japanese police remained part of the investigation after the deaths of the twelve F.B.I. agents that were hired by L to investigate Kira?||"Death Note" (US) Episodes 1-25
Six. Originally there were one hundred forty one members of the police that were investigating Kira, many were scared that their lives would be in danger if they continue to investigate him so they resigned from the Kira case. The members that stayed in the Kira case were Chief Souchiro Yagami, Matsuda, Aizawa, Mogi, Ukita, and Ide, Ide however leaves the task force soon after everyone else because he did not trust L not because of the deaths of the F.B.I agents. Chief Yagami did report to L telling him that there were six members of the police that chose to stay in the Kira investigation. L then told Yagami that everyone must be able to trust him in order to remain in the Kira Investigation, when the six discussed Ide said that he could not trust L and chose to leave the taskforce from there.
Raye Penber. L hired twelve F.B.I. agents to investigate all immediate family members of the Japanese police investigating Kira. Kira started to kill criminals whose names were not broadcasted from the media, L suspected that Kira had obtained information from the police so he hired his own team to investigate the families of the Japanese police.
Half of their life span. With the power of the shinigami eyes, that person can see any person's real name and life span by just looking at their face. However a person with the shinigami eyes can not see their own life span or any life span from someone else with a death note. This power makes using the death note much easier, however it comes at a heavy cost, half of their own life span.
L. L went by many different names such as Ryuzaki, Hideki Ryuga, and Geraldo Coil and his true name was never revealed. L was considered to be the best detective in the world and he rarely reveals his face to anyone and will only work on cases that interest him. L had some unique tendencies such as he was always seen eating sweets and drinking tea. L was willing to risk his life in order to capture Kira.
Ryuk. Light Yagami first saw the death note fall from the sky while he was in class. He picked up the notebook after class and thought it was a joke that it had powers that could kill people. He was curious to see if it actually worked. He saw a criminal's face and name on the news and wrote his name in the death note. The death note worked and Light realized that with this power, he could make the world a better place by killing more criminals. People have been noticing the pattern of recent criminal deaths, most of them died from heart attacks, and people have concluded that this was done by one person. They gave that person a name, Kira, which was Japanese for the word killer. Many were thankful for Kira while others are in fear of him.
|Near the beginning, where does Kira hide the TV from the cameras?||"Death Note"
In a bag of chips. Light hides a TV in a bag of chips. It looks like he is just writing down schoolwork in a notebook while enjoying a snack while he is actually writing down the names of criminals that appear on TV.
L walks up and introduces himself to Kira. L is a codename. The owner of a Death Note must know the person's whole name and have that person's face in mind when they write down the name in the Death Note. L decides the best way to discover if Light is Kira is to study him, and what better way than to become friends?
Ryuk. At the end, Light runs and hides from the police. Light is shot and loses blood fast. Ryuk kills Light with the Death Note. Ryuk told Light at the beginning that it was Ryuk who would kill Light. He was right.
Kira's Death Note is switched with a fake one. N has Kira's Death Note switched with a fake one. Kira's right-hand man writes down N's name into the fake Death Note (with the help of his Shinigami eyes). Light counts down the time it takes for someone to be killed by the Death Note. When the remaining time hits zero, Light tells N he lost. Little did Light know, it was vice-versa.
Rem. Rem, Misa's Shinigami, comes to love Misa. Light forces Rem into a corner by making it decide between Misa's life and it's own. Rem decides to kill L to prolong Misa's life, but because Rem killed a human to help another human, it died. And Light used to be such a nice guy....
Light. Perfect student Light is the killing machine known as Kira. Light's alliance with the police and L is a huge cover-up, at least until N joins the Kira case.
Show humans' addresses. Shinigami eyes show everything needed to kill a human with a Death Note. The owner of a Death Note can trade half of his remaining lifespan to get Shinigami eyes. Light doesn't make the trade, but Misa does.
