Why does everyone hate him? He didnt do anything evil. He had a strong sense of justice and not to mention he looks adorable.

In support of Near!  He's a great character - I love autistic types - this guy's completely helpless at living life but he can get all up in Kira's business and make things very very difficult for Kira.  If he does so thanks to the participation of others, he acknowledges as much, and holds L and Mello in brotherly love and esteem.  He got all into Light's psychology cool as a cucumber.  Sure, Light had become too complacent by the time Near came along.  Near out-thinks Light, and he does so in the very interesting way of being bolder than L was - this guy isn't effing around.  I'm a big fan of L, but after I finished the series and mulled it for a while, I realized that Near had what it took to get Light that L didn't have - the willingness to not just push at the edge but to push over it.  After 4 years of Kira's Reign of Terror, maybe it was time for that.  I would love to see Near's future.

how come there's so much hate for this character? not nearly as good as L, not very likeable for sure, but why so much hate? don't get it... he has his moments and he gets Light in the end

The reason I hate Near so much is that he is a poor replacement for L. Clearly they are not suppose to be the same character, but you can't argue that Near doesnt take over L's role.

Once L was out of the picture I hoped that Light would triumph and kill Near, but I was sadly mistaken.

Aside from the awful ending I thought this was a great anime. I supposed Light had to be defeated somehow, but I would have much rather it been at the hands of L than of Near, who simply pales in comparison.
