Welcome to Shibuya-Cho

Well, it's a huge week for manga this time around and I wish I could get around to all of it for you. A bunch of our favorites are coming out, as well as plenty of new releases. Yet amidst all the books I would love to talk about I feel a responsibility to devote this week's article to Death Note volume 12.

This is it, the last issue! And even if you know how it's all going to end, you also know you're going to read it anyway. Now I'm not going to spoil anything for the readers out there, but let's reflect on why this book caused us all (even people who aren't so much into manga) to fall into rabid fandom. The key of it all, it seems, is that we don't know who to love and who to hate! While Light is cool and kinda cute (in that way that psychos tend to have), he also loses touch with his purpose and becomes a sort of villain.

And L! L who we hate for always getting so close to catching Light, we also love for his brilliant quirkiness. Now anyone who has gotten into the series knows that it has it's ups and downs, but when it gets intense, WOW does it get intense. I can only imagine what writer Tsugumi Ohba has in store for the finale. So get out there and finish the series, that way you can move on to any of the other awesome series coming out this week. Like D. Gray-Man or Claymore.

Ja ne!
