Aka: Kira

Gender: Male
Hair Color: Brown
Rank #4
Rank #10

Armed with the power of Ryuk's Death Note, Light Yagami is cold, calculating and self-righteous to the extreme, believing that he alone is able to rid the world of corruption and evil. With precisely-calculated moves, Light strategically manipulates friends and foes alike, no matter who he hurts – or kills – along the way. Above all else, Light's supreme confidence fuels his ongoing obsession with defeating L, his intellectual equal and rival.

Always secretive as to his true identity, Light is known simply as 'Kira' to the rest of the society – including his father, a detective assigned to investigate the ongoing, high profile murders.

Okay, but legit he was our favorite waifu until the L incident.

I actually sided with him at first. He was right all along. It just became difficult to remain loyal because of his repetition, obsession with authority, and apathy towards everyone, but his intentions were pure at first. Nonetheless, his gradual descent into insanity was well-written and regaling. In a sense, he was a tragic portrayal of the human condition. Most people would go down the same route if in his shoes.

Top hate and Top Love XD

to all haters, Hey!!! what's wrong with you people?? I love Kira ♡ I know his way is not good but he have good intention. It's sad that death note power consume his soul, he loves the power that he cannot stop it.. but I agree with his ideals, his ways are not justifiable though. Still he's one of my favorite character ( ˘ ³˘)♥

Kira was someone I initially sided with-but soon found to be an increasingly unsympathetic figure the more the series went on.

Light Yagami, however is someone that I found to be a tragic figure who I believe would have been better off had he never found the Death Note.

Always respected L as a strong, competent rival, but i immediately sided with Light Yagami/Kira since day one. Still, would have preferred L surviving and arresting Kira himself, rather than... that "ending". Also, enjoyed the video edit in which Light kills near and wins. But as long as the plot is Light vs L, Death Note is one of the best anime of all time.
