    Unfair that they killed him at the end, you can't change the rules and then enforce them after the fact. I like how even though the protagonist dies, he made a positive impact on people's lives, and so this time around the Death Note brought some good to the world.

    Was an fun read overall! Normally I'd be skeptical of this kind of thing (should just let original stories end where they do instead of milking them), but it made the commentary that it did in a short and enjoyable way.

      I'll just mark the whole thread as a spoiler.

      It was very petty to change the rules on the new kid, but it worked in that Shinigami are petty, and the purpose of dropping a Death Note into the world is for people to die, so by making all of the chaos around selling it off, they could have seen that as a perversion of it's intended use. Least that's what I got out of it.

    I'm really not sure what to do with this one (~books, ~anime, ~misc?) , but I figured if any of you want to know what a follow up to Death Note would be like years later, there was a one off made and it's scratches an itch for me.

      I think ~anime is definitely better (for example, the recurring thread there is for both anime and manga), I'll move it there.

    It was definitely an interesting one shot, I found most interesting the characters design change of L. I also enjoyed that prominent characters from the first series have received recognition for their feats. My only gripe is I’m left wondering what a Shinigami King looks like.
