Death Note – Episode 37

新世界

New World

Mikami’s Death Note fails to work and Near confesses that he knew about the fake notebook and had actually tampered with the real one. Mikami is restrained and, faced with Near’s undeniable evidence, Light breaks down and laughs like a madman. He confesses that he is Kira and attempts to kill Near by writing his name on a piece of the Death Note hidden in his watch. Matsuda keeps him from doing so by shooting him down. Seeing Light writhe on the floor in agony, Mikami loses faith in his God and kills himself. Wounded, Light escapes in the middle of the commotion. He goes over everything that has happened in a series of flashbacks. As he had promised in the beginning of the series, Ryuk writes down Light’s name in his notebook, thinking that this whole experience has been quite fun. Misa is shown standing on top of a skyscraper, implying she is going to commit suicide, before Light finally dies of cardiac arrest on a set of stairs (possibly symbolic of his place in limbo, between heaven and hell), seeing L’s figure in front of him.

Each having developed a strategy to bring the other down for good, Light and Near finally meet face to face in an abandoned warehouse.

All they need do now is check whose name was not written to find out who the real Kira is. Light struggles to mask his glee as he thinks of how he already knew of Near’s actions and that that had been why he had Takada keep the real Death Note while switching Mikami’s with a false one.

The end of the year is drawing close, and that means Christmas is right around the corner. They get on the topic of how sometimes when they get sleepy on a bus, they sometimes tend to lean on the person next to them. Whenever Konata gets on her bus, she gets sleepy and falls asleep a few times on the shoulder of the person next to her. She realizes that she got off the stop before, but whenever she tries to go back to her seat, someone took it and Konata is forced to stand up. At school, Kagami is annoyed that she didn’t get much studying done, but Konata is proud about how many hours she studied. Whenever Miyuki asks how many hours they studied, it turns out that both studied for four hours.
