Well, I have been watching Death Note some over the past couple of weeks and am about 12 episodes in. It is currently the second highest rated series on ANN and my friend seems to think it is the best thing since sliced bread, thus why I decided to give it a try. However, I have found that I absolutely hate the main character, Light. I mean, I am enjoying the series as a whole, especially L, but Light just gets on my nerves with his pompous belief in his divine right to kill everyone, criminal or not, and make himself a God on Earth. He touts himself as being so intelligent all the time that just makes this twisted logic of his all the more infuriating.

Aside from that though I do like the series and have found it to be rather intelligent given its rather base premise, a notebook that kills people. So I will be continuing on, but I was just wondering if anyone else has run across these same feelings with this series or is it just me? :(

Have you read the manga? I have not seen the anime but the manga was good for awhile. After a volume or two it starts getting old quick though.

I saw the series upto ep 17 I think it was...but I did finish the manga and I enjoyed it...though yes....I hate Light too....I started hating him [spoil]after he killed the ex-FBI woman...cause that made him look weak...and if he is so smart as he says...and a God who only kills criminals than why kill her?...just because she was onto him he killed her...guess he`s not so smart after all[/spoil]

Still its a fun series...

zero_chaos,

No, I haven't read any of the manga yet.

Fresnokila,

That is just about the spot at which I really started hating him as well. I mean I didn't like him ever, and it just kept growing more and more and once it hit that point I just hated him outright.

Well it's easy to hate Light, but then again, Light is meant to be hated and L is meant to be liked, which only makes things more tragic later on.

However, when I watched Death Note, I always got the feeling that the villain and the hero were never made clear. There is no clear distinction between good and evil.

Yeah, Light is and evil bastard. But with all honesty I starte disliking him when he went on about the bull shit (sorry for cussing) about being able to force people to obey the law. Also was just how blantently predictible the entire thing was. But I really really started to hate Light after he killed that FBI guy, the ex-FBI chicks betrothed. If he was so smart, or truly rightious as he claims over and over again he wouldn't have had to. Still I gotta respect his ability to manipulate people, for that I respect and absolutely despise him.

spazmaster666,

Usually the shows that involve a villain or some such person that is supposed to be hated I don't have any problem with it, they are an integral part to the story and without them most stories wouldn't have a point. However, something is extremely off putting about Light and it really makes me want him to die as soon as he starts talking. I will have to think about it, but I don't remember having such a hatred for a character before.

Is the fourth DVD's release date some sort of cheap joke from Viz?

The first two volumes were released on month apart, but volume 3 is due to be released on Feb 19, two months after the second volume.

I haven't seen the series, but in general I'd like to add that given such a note book I would burn it immediately because no one should hold such power. Who am I to decide whether someone deserves to die or not?

I think I will watch the series not despite the fact but because I would hate the main character.

I love Light. It's because I myself wouldn't mind witnessing some people die. My brain just works that way.

Any normal person would hate him though.

I personally have no hatred toward Light.
I know most people see him as sadistic, but for some reason I do not.
From what I've seen of the anime so far, it seems to be pretty good.
