Damn right! L had his own 'air' of awesomeness, he was such a brilliant, enigmatic creature. Love his weird habits too.

L is definately one of the best characters in the whole series. I wouldn't mind seeing some kind of background story about him, such as some of the other cases he worked on before the "Kira" case and maybe some more personal history. Not that this is likely to happen but it would be interesting to watch or read, a quality OVA would be good.

Have you read the BB Murder Cases yet? There is some information about L I'm there. It's really hard to find and costs alot. I imported mine from America.

No, is it a novel? Can you post the ISBN number and the full title on here or PM it to me please?

I'm ordering the Death Note Live movie boxset to watch now that I've finished the anime. And I've got the 1st volume of the manga to read still so I may get the rest depending on whether I enjoy it or not.

I admit that Near did cheat to win. I would have preferred Mello to win as he sacrificed himself for the Kira Case so did L.

Yes I was extremely dissapointed after L died and these two, rather lame replacements, turned up; it is the only dissapointment that the show caused me thus far. I also think that Near's decisions arent explained well enough and seem to have no basis in fact, this brings down the intelligent thriller aspect of the show. I don't hate Near, I just find him an inferior story-telling device to L.

I'd also have to choose L. Near was a not bad character but I also agree L could not be replaced. ^_^
I never really liked Mello though... idk I've only seen the anime but yeahh. xD

i agree near just seems too know things and make decisions with no explanation of how he knows them

Yes I agree, it felt empty when Near did it, sorta like he was taking the glory - a bit of a hollow victory. This made the ending slightly less enjoyable than I had hoped, even if I did know what was coming.

I do consider this (quote) a bit of a spoiler though

I agree some of Nears methods are bad especially when the incedent at the SPK headquarters Near didn't show any emotion.

I mean L is so funny and cool Cool

Near is so cute the way he plays with his toys and plays with his hair is so adorable Smile

Mello is such a badass thats its needed seriously if near wasn't a badass and L wasn't that much of a badass he was just really cool

And i do love matt he just the coolest sidekick ever.....Love him forever!

I was starting to like him, then he got killed why did they have to kill him. It could have been him who solved the Kira Case.

L was the better of the three it seemed like the others were low grade copycats.

The only thing I was expecting from Near was to see his clothes get dirty and him start freaking out, that's all I was expecting from that brat.

I prefer L, seeing as he is just so awesome and had all these quirks. However i did find that Near was pretty cool as well, however i didn't like how he just knew everything, it made the last few volumes seem rushed IMO at least...

I agree with you on that thy could have made the series a bit longer by not rushing those last few volumes.

Yes I'm sure I have said it earlier; that Near annoyed me almost as much as Mello. His apparently amazing intellect was just annoying.

...L...

I'm sorry! He was just so cool!
Although, Mello is definitely a close second. He had more of an attitude.

But I think I'd have liked Near better if he was more different to L, like Mello. He seemed to much of a carbon copy replacement for me.
