I forgot to comment on chapter 10-11, but yeah. These chapters allow us to settle down again after the dramatic conclusion of ch 8-9.
There’s some big changes for the Kira investigation: it’s clear that Kira will kill those who go after him, so a lot of people resign from the case. Those who remain are few, and they also demand answers from L (much as Light had hoped): how are they to trust in L when he had the Japanese investigators themselves investigated?
In the end, L acknowledges that they should meet. So, that’s the next big change: the investigation literally moving shop to the hotel room where L is staying.
Meanwhile, toward the end of ch 11 we see Light worrying about whether his actions and movements from disposing of the FBI in Japan, has left any big clues to his identity… dun dun dunつづく…
Finally we get to see Light sweat for real! XD Clearly, this woman should have stayed in the force! It’s fun to watch Light struggle against her precautions, while Ryuk is having fun at Light’s expense!
And with L more closely “in charge” of the Japanese police, they’re also doing the same: false names and badges. Light is up for a challenge moving forward.
Also, that misleading translation of the new rules for the chapter. XD If you didn’t have the Japanese text you’d be forgiven for thinking the Death Note itself will be rendered useless if you manage to misspell one person’s name 4 times.
I’ve been falling behind, but I think I will continue reading today and tomorrow. I’m not sure if I can catch up completely and I don’t know if I will continue with volume 3 (depends on how I like the rest of volume 2).
Okay, I’m all caught up! I don’t plan to continue with volume 3, though. It was nice to read some volumes of such a well-known manga and I liked the wordiness, but I’ve got too many other things I want to read (and if it continues for 12 volumes with all the twists and narrow escapes then it’s a bit too much for me).
Thank you for running the continuation club @polv !
Yeah, and she should have stayed in the story! (I assume she’s really gone…) It’s really sad that she fell for Light’s trick… I thought she was smarter than that.
Yeah, that was great
Yeah, I loved the 「子供の遊びじゃないんだ」because they really are acting as schoolchildren being all impressed and nervous about everything that L says
