L main image

Secretive, meticulous and cunning, L's desire to win coupled with his intellect give him the reputation of being the best detective in the world. His disheveled and childish exterior masks his sharp and analytical mind, throwing off his adversaries. Reclusive and paranoid, L solves his cases by communicating with the outside world via his assistant Watari and a computer with voice scrambler. L has a sweet tooth, and can often be found crouching instead of sitting normally while snacking on cakes. He is adept at mind games and much like a child, is willing to do almost anything to win, aided by his mysterious, impassive expression and his monotonous voice, which make him impossible to read.

L was possibly one of my favorite characters of Death Note, hence one of my favorite characters of all time... but, I didn't really cry. I'm not the type that cries over these type of things. I mean, it wasn't that depressing of a death. He fell off his chair and died of a heart attack. Just like every other death in the anime. Well, not everyone fell off their chair... but most of the people died of heart attacks. Not really that depressing, and I saw it coming. Didn't you guys read the manga? Gawd.

This character is interesting, and the most important character other than Light, but...

I don't like him that much. To be honest, he can be quite creepy at times. He's a good character, but I don't know why people praise him. (And some actually think he's hot, what?)
