Yagami Light is an unusually bright high school student who has found himself disillusioned and bored with both life and the world. When he stumbles upon a strange book entitled Death Note, however, this all changes. In an attempt to purge the world of evil, he uses the book's powers to claim the lives of criminals and establish himself as a god. Not long after his quest begins, though, he finds himself confronted by a man calling himself "L" who vows to put an end to Light's reign of tyranny before it can begin. With two genius intellects at odds, a deadly game of cat and mouse ensues, and with it can be only one winner - who will prevail?
