Death Note is a Japanese manga series written by Tsugumi Ohba and illustrated by Takeshi Archived from the original (PDF) on November 6, Retrieved .
However, after deducing Light's girlfriend: Mia Sutton's connection with the serial-murders, L finds a hidden page of the Death Note within her home and out of a thirst for vengeance, contemplates writing Light's name in it, while elsewhere, Light is visited by Ryuk: the Death Note's original owner, who smilingly comments to Light in his hospital bed: "You humans are so interesting", possibly hinting that L may or may not have written down his name in the Death Note page.
L's background and past is also briefly explored in this adaptation, with his childhood originating from a secluded and currently abandoned orphanage named the St. Martin's Orphanage, where he was subjected to a series of tests and experiments, as part of a clandestine government project, which involved the rearing of intellectually-gifted orphans into skilled black ops agents, who would secretly operate on behalf of the government.
As a result of these tests and experiments, his mental psyche was severely affected, which explains his unusual quirks, awkward behavior, along with his more unstable, irrational and repressed side of his personality, which is displayed by the film's second half.
While the story includes several phone discussions with him from Misora's perspective, he only appears in person at the end of the novel, when he goes by the name "Ryuzaki" - an alias he appropriates from the novel's serial murderer, Beyond Birthday , who masquerades as L under the alias "Rue Ryuzaki". The light novel also says that L won the aliases Eraldo Coil and Deneuve in a "detective war" with the real Coil and Deneuve. A few differences with different attitude has made to this character.
White shirt and white trouser is his all-time outfit. While capturing Higuchi, Light saves L's life from Higuchi's gunshot.
Later, while confessing Light, with a fake death note, Mikami kills him. Then Near takes L's place and follows the videos left by L.
L's funeral is shown at the end of the series. Reception[ edit ] Alessandro Juliani 's work as L's English voice actor has received praise. Publications from manga and anime have commented on L's character. Tom S. Pepirium of IGN describes L as "the coolest, most well developed character in anime today". The overall winner from the poll was L, who also ranked first in the women's poll and second in the men's poll.
Can a cartoon hero really die, and what kind of death is it? In other words, within war manga itself, questions emerge precisely because of the basic contrast between drawing styles—or we might say, due to a fundamental incommensurability between plastic line and structural line.
This contrast becomes especially evident in panels and sequences in which military weaponry appears. Two prime examples occur in volume 7. On page 55, as Gen reads about the Enola Gay which dropped the atomic bomb on Hiroshima , the airplane is drawn above his head in illustration fig. Nakazawa , The structurally precise and mechanically dense lines of vol. Similarly, on page , where a Japanese-American oficer defends the American use of the atomic bomb by evoking Pearl Harbor, an illustration of the Japanese attack on American warships at Pearl Harbor appears in the panel alongside him fig.
Such a contrast is common throughout the manga: Nakazawa vol. In sum, the contrast between cartoon form and 7, p. The mecha style is also used for apparently neutral depictions, as with the presentation of the temple Kiyomizudera.
The children travel to Kyoto with their mother and visit Kiyomizudera, which the mother visited on her honeymoon with her now dead husband. Here the contrast between characters and mecha style of the temple is striking ig.
In other words, a dialectical struggle between forces of life and death Fig. The association of death with architectures goes even deeper: It is precisely because, under conditions of war, houses can transform into mecha-like weaponry of destruction that the contrast between plastic line and structural line takes on new urgency. And a series of quasi-dialectical questions arise through this formal contrast. Is a synthesis of these polarized tendencies possible? Or will one force triumph over the other?
Can life and peace triumph over death and war? Or will there be only an eternal oscillation without hope of reconciliation, let alone hope of actual movement beyond cycles of destruction?
Posing questions in this manner might encourage us to pull a deinitive message out of the manga, to decide what Barefoot Gen tells us about the atomic bomb.
But to read manga is not to extract a content or message. There are of course a whole series of statements in Barefoot Gen—about the evils of war; about the complicity of armies, politicians, and proiteers; about the will to survive; about self-reliance; about friendship and family; about the struggle for peace, to name a few.
Such statements do not attain or even strive for discursive regularity, however. Nor do comics need to strive for discursive regularity, or to impart a coherent and consistent message. Let me turn to another image in volume 7 that expands the panel form across two pages to provide panoramic view of the horrors of August 8 ig. Striking about this image is its insistence on the structural line and structures. It is not a scene of wild disorder. Although the image spreads across two pages, the form of the panel is retained, with neat lines around the image.
The image is also organized with a sense of one-point perspective, an almost iconic one-point perspective view down the railroad tracks, with horizon and vanishing point.
Structural lines abound: The emphasis on structure also serves to highlight the disappearance of houses along the tracks. Oddly, however, the collapsed houses remain orderly.
This overall insistence on structure and structural lines ultimately serves to foreground what is horribly out of place: The image is horrifying because it depicts an actual event. Still, the force of the image does not and cannot derive wholly from its ability to represent actual suffering. The horror of this image derives from its meticulous use of structural lines. The echoes of one-point perspective, in conjunction with the mecha style, transform the world into an exploded projection, showing how the atomic bomb does not only destroy the physical dwellings of humans but also digs deeper in the nature of things, threatening to explode existence itself.
In addition, the mecha style serves to foreground human igures, and what makes these forms especially terrifying in the context of manga is the absence of plasticity. These forms are melting, liquefying, and the result is elasticity without any springiness, as if the very possibility of rebounding or springing back had been driven from existence. And this belief in comics takes the concrete form of a belief in the plastic line. Clearly it would not be enough for Nakazawa to embrace plasticity by covering the entire surface of the manga with plastic igures, expelling the structural line altogether.
Such a gesture would not be true to comics, nor would it address the challenge of the atomic bomb to comics, which challenge lies in the 15 Note that, in Barefoot Gen, injuries and scars due to the atomic bomb appear as structural lines robbing the face of its plastic appeal. This is why Barefoot Gen sticks so tenaciously to plasticity, wherever it appears.
This commitment to plasticity unfolds into a series of compositional tensions, formal contrasts, and quasi-dialectical struggles, which do not strive for discursive regularity. But this is not true to the manga Barefoot Gen. Before and beyond any expression of a belief in life, in humanity, in cosmological harmony, or in peace, Barefoot Gen enacts a belief in comics.
The image of Gen and friends striking happy and triumphant poses in front of the mushroom cloud now makes sense in a different way. As a counter-explosion, it comes with and after the bomb. This manga bomb explodes with and against the atomic bomb.
Still, even though it is not possible or desirable to impose discursive regularity upon Barefoot Gen, its proposition—believe in comics—does make for a speciic set of orientations toward the atomic bomb, which come from believing in the plastic line despite the reciprocal determinations that come with it. Manga becomes a way of orientating oneself historically and politically. By way of conclusion I would like to address this prolongation of the plastic line into a set of political orientations toward the atomic bomb and the politics of trauma.
Biopolitics and trauma Pheng Cheah argues persuasively that the concept of trauma derived from Freud implies a politics of sovereignty, of bounded subjectivity and bounded nationality Cheah There is, in other words, a constitutive closure or bounded sovereign space that is irreparably breached by the traumatic event, shattering the autonomy and integrity of the subject.
In effect, Cheah signals the tendency of trauma theory to posit national sovereignty prior to its invention, thus naturalizing nationality or national identity. To counter this tendency, he argues that we need to think in terms of the constitutive exposure of the subject, to address the artiiciality of national sovereignty and identity, which is a irst step in getting beyond the current tendency toward celebrating or pathologizing national sovereignty, rather than confronting its politics more pragmatically, particularly in the contemporary context of biopolitics.
First, they help us make sense of the ways in which the atomic bombs have entered into the formation of foundational narratives of Japanese sovereignty in the postwar era Igarashi A number of commentators have stressed the dynamics of nationalism in discourses and practices associated with the atomic bombs. There are discussions of the elimination of Korean victims of the atomic bomb from the Hiroshima Memorial Park Yoneyama Simply put, the trauma of the actual victims of Hiroshima and Nagasaki has frequently been treated as national trauma, which posits the constitutive closure of the nation prior to, and above and beyond, the traumatic event.
One might argue against the political eficacy of such gestures or question the terms for them: Nonetheless, the manga invites us to look at the effects of the atomic bomb in a framework other than that of trauma and national sovereignty. At this level, the identification of those responsible within Japan to some extent follows class lines: In this respect, Barefoot Gen recalls the political dynamics of proletarian literature, especially stories for children that dwelled on economic disparity and resistance to special police.
War is to some extent class war. Ultimately, however, Barefoot Gen does not offer a proletarian vision, in the sense of focusing on the industrial proletariat. The father is arrested and tortured, and the family is denied food by the military authorities.
See Fukuma Similarly, in the postwar era, the basic conlict is not between the bourgeoisie and the industrialized masses of proletarian workers. In addition, the general emphasis on torture and medical experimentation conirms the general gravitation toward scenes of biopolitical struggle. Barefoot Gen presents an overall political and historical orientation toward a sort of military-biopolitical complex rather the military-industrial complex.
Throughout his studies, he continued to address different kinds of power formations, different techniques or procedures for managing a multiplicity. Thus in his later work he spoke of three distinct apparatuses of power, which nonetheless can enter into mixtures: In the ostracism of atomic bomb survivors, we may detect a form of disciplinary power. Note that this is very different from Giorgio Agamben who sees biopolitics as the underlying quasi-metaphysical truth of sovereignty.
In the directly physical consequences of the circulation of money, and in the tendency to treat bomb victims experimentally in terms of probabilistic population tendencies, we see the biopolitical. The manga thus offers a different understanding of trauma, if we wish to retain that term.
Trauma here is not a breach in the boundaries of a pre-constituted subject nation or individual but the radical exposure of a multiplicity the real , which lends itself to different techniques of power simultaneously. In any event, in Barefoot Gen, it is the biopolitical that dominates, potentially folding other techniques of power in it. But the manga is not merely a representation of the biopolitical or a discourse on it. This is the manga bomb that explodes over the Hiroshima world.

Ohba believed that having Light's death be definitively known to the world would "cause problems",  and he also recalls discussing how "distasteful" it would be for the readers to see the Yagami family grave.
Ohba added that Aizawa was the best choice since he had connections to the NPA and Near and that Aizawa becoming the chief would have been "unimaginable" earlier in Death Note. Ohba explained that Mogi would have been too biased to Near.
The only definitive statement Ohba made about the theories is that Light ordered Mikami to not take the Death Note out until the end. Ohba explained that Yamamoto, a character who Matsuda teases, was added at the thumbnail stage and has no significance; Ohba added him to show Matsuda "bossing someone around".
While there may not be significance in his use, Yamamoto was first seen in volume 1 chapter 2 as Light's best friend. He was seen again in volume 2, when Light suggests he send him a New Years card, but he didn't appear until this chapter. Regarding the Kira worshipers, Ohba said that he would have been fine having Light simply die "in his pathetic state", but Ohba decided to "redeem" Light somewhat by illustrating that, despite the fact that Light is dead, he becomes a god for a group of people.
