Death Note: Tokubetsu-hen - Obata, Takeshi Ohba, Tsugumi


It has been three years since the "Kira Killings" came to a halt, but the world has not forgotten that godlike figure. While rumors circulate that Kira was killed, others claim that Kira is merely taking a break and that their rebirth is inevitable. Although this is nothing but gossip, soon enough, Japan falls under the Death Note's spell once again.

When a spike in elderly deaths occurs, many believe that Kira is making a comeback. This time, however, those dying are publicly wishing for Kira to kill them, inspiring many other suicidal individuals to call upon Kira's powers. With both publicity and the number of deaths ramping up, the Japanese police and the anonymous detective L are drawn in to tackle the return of the Death Note.
