Keep L in tha story

Death Note writers: *first drake meme template*

Death Note writers: *second drake meme template*

i feel like this character was just super unoriginal... he is a copy of L,,, like if yall wanted L to end light why not just keep him alive? but i also do see the value of killing off L but still!!! near discovering light was kira is really unsatisfying

Near as a character himself is actually not that bad in my perspective.  If this was under a different scenario, I think i would like him.

The reason why i don't like him is because he is cleary a rip off from L, they literally killed off one of the best characters in the whole anime verse and replaced him with a freaking dollar store version.  This makes L's death useless then it is which angrifies me.  Just keep the better one, there was no need for Near to have existed.  I wanted L and Light to have the epic show down, not some randomo who comes halfway and takes all of L's hard work.  

That being said, no hate to the creators.  Although i don't agree with their choice on this character, i will not critisize them bc they were the ones who made this amazing anime

I feel bad Near gets all this hate because the character itself, is geniunely okay but he was added in so it looks like a cheap try to replace L.  L was one in a kind.  Nothing can replace him.

He's a shallow, shoddy clone of L. It's like the author was on a roll and then had a stroke, took L out of the picture and then brought in a cheap replacement. After L was no longer in the picture the quality of the series dropped. The intensity that had been built up whistled out like a deflated balloon. Near honestly shouldn't have existed, because he acts almost exactly like L, but isn't L -- I really don't know what the author was thinking.
