Light’s new successor is interesting with a unique characteristic just like Light. But I honestly think that Near is wasting time questioning and pestering the taskforce members like Aizawa and Mogi when he could be going a lot more deeper with the case. Though mostly throughout this volume of the series we just read about Near and Mello trying to get closer to the end of this case while making no progress at all. Death Note volume 10, by Tsugumi Ohba, has a lot of intensity only stirs up during the parts involved with Kira’s chosen successor and how he gets another woman to fall for him with his irresistible romantic act. I do dislike how he feels that women are too easy to get and merely has any respect for them while using them only for his needs and trashing them afterwards.
