Synopsis from Goodreads:
Light Yagami is an ace student with great prospects - and he's bored out of his mind. But all that changes when he finds the Death Note, a notebook dropped by a rogue Shinigami death god. Any human whose name is written in the notebook dies, and now Light has vowed to use the power of the Death Note to rid the world of evil. But when criminals begin dropping dead, the authorities send the legendary detective L to track down the killer. With L hot on his heels, will Light lose sight of his noble goal...or his life?

Love
With two Kiras on the loose, L asks Light to join the taskforce and pose as the real Kira in order to catch the copycat. L still suspects Light, and figures that this is the perfect excuse to get closer to his quarry. Light agrees to the plan in order to have free access to the taskforce resources. But when Light manages to contact the new Kira, he discovers that his rival is anything but as expected. Will Light escape from love unscathed?
My Rating★★★★★

My Thoughts:
Ratio is smart and I couldn't believe who the second Kira was. This new character, Misa, seems too submissive to Ratio and a bit strange. She needs to act like more like a killer and not a girl in love. She's like a psycho stalker who wants to force him to love her. Just crazy. 

Finding out that a God of Death can die was very interesting. The part where L calls Ratio his friend almost made me shed a tear. Definitely did not expect the ending to happen like that. Ratio definitely plans things out thoroughly. 

Totally enjoying this manga!
