Not going to promise anything, but maybe I’ll catch up! :eyes: I’ve been thinking about it. So, just maybe. Not promises though. I do think this is a series worth revisiting for sure!

Prosciutto

Oh look, it’s even in that wikipedia link!
And yeah, it seems like he just ate the melon, which makes sense for L honestly. I don’t know why he got that plate in the first place tho, maybe it is Watari trying to give him food that is not as sweet haha.

Yeah, the change in Lights attitude is pretty stark and even L is confused. Now that the killings have resumed let’s see what their plan is

How is he talking while tying cherry stems with his tongue hahaha

I love this expression, as if the thought og not being in the police force anymore cleared his mind and soul (and with good reason)

Everyone tense, meanwhile Misa chatting with friends

I gotta say, I am still intimidated by these walls of text Light and L generate haha
