This story all happens out mostly in a small town in Japan. A young man whose name is, 'Light Yagami' attends high school and makes straight A's. Light always thought the world was rotten and needed to be rid of criminals. Though, he had nothing to do about it. But one day during one of Light's classes, he caught sight of a book that fell from the sky and fell to the ground next to the window of that class. Curious, Light waited until the end of that period to go and look at it. Once he did, he read the rules, and thought of it as a fake, but where could it have come from? He was on the top floor. Light left it behind once and began walking off to his home before he curiosity caught up with him and he decided to test the note book out to see if it was a real. He came home and went into his room with the note and turned on the TV after reading the notes again and wrote a news caster's name in it. 40 seconds later that person died of a heart attack. After that, Ryuk showed himself to Light , calling himself a 'shinigami'. Or, a God Of Death. From that moment, Light has promised to use the note to execute criminals and make the wold a better place, while he does this, he has called himself, 'Kira' to keep from anyone finding out who he really was.
Meanwhile, a mysterious man named L who found out of Kira thought his brand of justice was wrong, and needed to be brought to justice. He himself and a few other detectives have also promised to help L in this journey to find and execute Kira; Though, they do not know how Kira kills so many people, without it being seen. Also, a young detective who calls herself, KH, has also sworn to find Kira and bring him to justice. The difference between both her and L is she does not care who dies in the process, she just wants to find, and kill Kira. Meanwhile, KH and L have met each other, they have both come together to find out who Kira is and bring him to justice. Although, they both have their doubts about each other, they cannot trust each other fully just yet, but for now they have to deal with it.
Although, KH has run into a Shinigami, who threatens to kill L if she does not use it's DeathNote; As she is on the run away from the Kira Investegation Headquarters, L has many more detectives on his side than ever still looking for the First & Second Kira.
Light: "Look around, there are plenty of things this world can do without. Sin, immorality, crime, It's time for a change."
The human who's name is written in this notebook shall Die.
Light: "I have the power, to make the world, to make people better. I'm not afraid to use it. I'm not afraid to kill. How and when it happens is entirely in my hands. All I need in a Name, a face, a pen, and this notebook."
If the cause of death is written within 40 seconds of writing the person's name, it will happen.
If the cause of death is not specified, the person will simply die of a heart attack.
Light: "No one can stop me."
L: "I'm chasing someone without a name or a face. Someone who believes he is on the righteous path, ridding the world of criminals, but his brand of justice is misaligned. By acting as a God, he himself has become the criminal."
The human who uses this note can neither go to heaven nor hell.
L: "It's my duty, no my calling, to find him, to show him what justice truly means. He'll hear me, but he'll never see me coming. When I find him, his capture will be the world's operation. I'll uncover Kira's real identity if it's the last thing I do."
Both: " I swear, I am justice!"
Light: "Kill me-------"
L: "-------if you can!"
