Light Yagami & L – Death Note
Light Yagami (Japanese: 夜神月 Hepburn: Yagami Raito) is a fictional character and the protagonist of the manga series Death Note, created by Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata. He is a bored young genius who finds the Death Note dropped by the Shinigami Ryuk by pure chance. Using the notebook, which allows its owner to kill anyone simply by knowing their name and face, Light becomes a serial-murderer known as Kira (キラ?) in an attempt to create and rule a utopia cleansed of criminals, with him at the helm as a “god”.
L Lawliet (Japanese: エル・ローライト Hepburn: Eru Rōraito), exclusively known by the mononym L, is a fictional character in the manga series Death Note, created by Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata. He is an eccentric genius and international private detective, reputed to be the world’s greatest, who takes on cases that have stymied national governments and Interpol. He opposes the series’ main character Light Yagami by trying to prove his (correct) suspicion that Light is the mass-murderer called “Kira” who is attempting to create and rule a world “cleansed of evil” as its “God”.
