How to contribute to this vocab sheet
The more people contribute to the vocab sheet the more helpful it is for everyone, so please don't feel shy about adding to it!
Please read these guidelines carefully before you get stuck in, so...
Please read the editing guidelines in the first sheet before adding any words! There might not be many new vocabularies later on, so feel free to see former chapters’ vocabularies.
We are going at the pace of 1 week per chapter. Each week starts on Saturday. There are roughly 20 pages per chapter.
Please blur out major events in the current week’s pages, and
any content from later in the book/series, like this: texthere

I am reading along

I am no longer reading this series
There will also be participation polls throughout this discussion thread as we reach each chapter
I choose to believe you mean this
Light is lucky that the helicopter window isn’t reflecting his extreme smug smile
I think this was one of the easiest chapters to read so far
That definitely was one of the easier chapters, it was a nice start!
I’ve been trying to catch up, but technically still about half way through volume 1 (I’ve read/watched with English subs many times so know the story). Hopefully I can stay up to date here and also work my way through the previous volumes.
Light is always lucky with his expression.
keikaku means plan.
Rem is everyone reading this part here
“Trust me bro, this is all for Misa’s sake” - He said with a straight face
I don’t get what is supposed to be written on this death note
The most suspicious small talk ever hahaha
Ohhh I forgot that scene was the one, it all makes sense now
@bellacarr Great! I admire your effort, it’s already a bit of a hassle to read 1 chapter of death note per week, I can’t imagine having to read more to catch up haha
I’m reading this week’s chapter at the moment and realised there isn’t any vocab for this volume in the google sheets - shall I add some of the vocabulary I look up whilst reading, or would you guys prefer to leave it?
Feel free to add. I created a new sheet for each volume, just in case.
I’m a little confused at the use of とも on page 30
At first I thought it was particle と + も, but now I’m not sure if it’s conditional と?
The first one is just
共 = together. ( とも )
The second one is like
と (conditional) + も (even) = even if, continuing from the earlier ～なく.
Chapter and story comments
It’s curious how Misa’s reaction to recovering her memories was so much different from Light’s. Does this maybe show the difference in personalities that acquiring the death note caused in each one of them? Maybe Misa being the least affected. Could also be that her memories of the death note are mostly positive, spending them with Light, as she says on the next panel.
Maybe Light’s scream was the no-deathnote personality reacting to what the deathnote Light did, in its last moments of consciousness. Or maybe I’m just looking too deep into this hahaha
Ahh yes, handwritten with no furigana, my favourite
Ok this might be my favourite panel
Ok this might be my favourite L pose
I love this phrase from Ryuk “She’s all hugs”
Pretty fun chapter, and easy to read (maybe due to all the misa monologue)
I’m glad Ryuk is back, I missed his antics and eerie moments
My mind just refused on that handwritten page XD
The English version in case anyone else needs it:
Yeah, I missed the duo with Light
God these two panels are funny knowing smirk into “fuckin kira”
Poor Watari, didn’t stand a chance
Future story spoilers:
I know it’s coming soon, but I don’t know if my heart can handle it a second time, look how they massacred my boy
