Actually supposed to, despite the drama. Narrative does say 焦らず.


I love unspoken actless ominous atmosphere, in this new chapter, and a little later on.

Page 32:

毎日 朝次(45) is a weird name, unless I misunderstand something?

Ohh I didn’t even read their names honestly, I guess it would be something like “Every day there is a next morning” or something, I don’t know if it’s a pun by the author or something honestly.

朝次 is a given name it seems, and can be spelled as ちょうじ or あさじ, however I can’t find 毎日 or even how you’d spell it (まいにち sounds super weird). Honestly quite the conundrum

Chapter 19 gems

This chapter had many gems

image

L fangirling (because why not)

Epic moment

I’m not sure if the Idol is supposed to lookj like Light or if that’s just the standard “hot guy” look the author makes. Either way the comparison between the even more stylized Light and the frogfage L is hilarious

image

Most emoion we’ve gotten from Light so far

And also from Ryuk (poor dude was only trying to help)

And finally the eternal maniacal laughter that will forever haunt my dreams (and also iconic in the What’s up people opening)

Great chapter honestly, a bit of a tipping point for the series

The same guy as on TV from NKK (what’s that?) just before ICPO quick news . I believe there was a glimpse in vol 2 as well.

This should easily be caught by a camera, as he is in his seat; or at least, wiretapping. (He most probably didn’t whisper.)


I also have just recently noticed that Light took an entrance examination into 東大 (but not that 東大).


About Ch. 20, reading Furigana’d Katakana is fun.

I think they removed the wiretapping, right? I think Ryuk made that comment at some point.

That’s what happens when you’re a mc, the extras just show up to the scene hahaha

I read it pretty early this time, I think I’ve got a better schedule now, death note is a better read for the weekends.

I can’t believe they took a picture of me reading death note

Also, I just realized death note is basically Among us

Looks like we are down to 3 people. But that’s enough to keep me going and actually get around to read it so I can click the poll that I’m reading along when next chapter drops :grin:

I like how he is snaking his way into the investigation

I don’t come up with what actually happened myself. Maybe considering reading better, through the earlier chapters, for clues and hypotheses?
