Death Note Vol 6, by Tsugumi Ohba

Death Note Vol 6, by Tsugumi Ohbathe supreme team of Light and L has put their brilliance together narrowing down to the seven members of the Yotsuba company. Yet still it seems impossible for the taskforce to target the actual Kira considering how all 7 members have the act of Kira. With the tension rising L gives Misa a part in this case to collect any information she can as the model of their company. If dangerous situations are depended on Misa then that means trusty Rem will surely give her a hand. But how will Rem come back to Misa who has not one speck memory of the Death Note.

Even though I very much like the serious intensity that goes on in this magnificent story, I am not very much fond of this Yotsuba situation. Mostly because of its lengthy duration and lack of climax. Another major factor is how the story just bounces back and forth between the task force and the Yotsuba building with no side situation to make the event a bit more dynamic. But at same time it’s interesting to see how Light responds to the Kira case as his usual self while helping Ryuzaki by trying to remember whether he was ever in the position of Kira
