Deathnote Volume 5 by Tsugumi Ohba

Title: Whiteout

Author: Tsugumi Ohba

Illustrator: Takeshi Obata

Series: Volume 5, Deathnote

Summary: May Contain Spoilers! After a week locked up with no one but Ryuk for company, Light is ready to give up his Death Note and all memories of it. Freed from his past actions, Light is convinced he's innocent. But L is ready to keep Light under lock and key forever, especially since the killings stopped once Light was incarcerated. Then a new wave of Kira crimes hits Japan. Someone else has gotten their hands on a Death Note, and these new deaths aren't focused on making the world a better place, they're focused on making money. Big business can be murder, and Kira has gone corporate!

Review: I'm really loving the Deathnote series but this one I have to say, wasn't the best.  I still liked it but it wasn't my complete favourite of the series.

There was a lot of patches where I got a little bored.  There were a couple of interesting parts but overall it wasn't as exciting or suspensful as I would've liked.

Still I will continue to read the Deathnote series because overall it is pretty good.  Part of the story line at the moment is very interesting.  I'm curious to know what's going to happen in the future.

  1. Just gonna tell you one thing...
    A couple of columes ahead, something major happens and, honestly, the story should've ended there.
    The "second half" is awful and most fans consider it not to be REALLY part of the manga...


Comments are always awesome!
