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.

He is a genius and a masterpiece character. Never will I ever find any anime character like L. This  a genius game of winning and losing while trying to save the world in their own contradiciting ways with reasons enough to think that they can be both right too. But I am always at L's side. Thank you :)

I don't like the whole concept surrounding light and L's relationship. The whole win/loss thing seemed tossed in to form some "greater" point than it actually is. On the bright side, this guy was the coolest in this anime; he was an awesome character! I must say, he certainly brings something of interest to the table and a fairly cool character design as well.

Errm, I guess I can't form many more thoughts on him. I didn't find him as interesting as other people, but he was very entertainting. I liked being able to listen to what he thought up. At times he did seem stumped by pretty trivial obstacles though. Admittedly, I probably would be too if I only had a dim light in a dark room. 

I'd love to know his name though.
