SynopsisThe story follows the mysterious "L" and others as they try to catch cool and brainy high school student Raito Yagami (Fujiwara), who has come into possession of a notebook that allows him to summon a murderous demon simply by writing the name of his intended victim. Although Raito is aware that killing is wrong, he strongly believes that the violent crimes he perpetrates are justified because "evildoers must die in order to create a better society."
