Who is Light Yagami 101: Everything You Wanted to Know

By Matteo Drelli. Updated Sep 3, 2023

Light Yagami with the Death Note in his hands

Light Yagami is the focal character in the anime and manga series Death Note. He stumbles upon a mystical notebook called the Death Note. With it, he embarks on a mission to cleanse the world of wrongdoers. In Japan, his deeds earn him the nickname "Kira."

What is Light Yagami's appearance?

Light Yagami is a young guy who stands tall and has light-brown locks and brown peepers. In the series' early phase, you'll often see him in a tan school uniform with a red tie. Other times, he's in relaxed yet stylish attire, like a dress shirt under a jacket. In the series' later part, he mostly switches to suits.

His good looks catch the eye of many, including characters like Misa Amane and Kiyomi Takada.

What is Light Yagami's personality?

Light Yagami is a cocktail of talents and complexities. He's a hardworking genius with an incredible knack for solving problems. Popular in his circle and loved by family, he appears to have it all. But beware, his intelligence breeds a hubris that spirals out of control once he finds the Death Note.

Light shares his father Soichiro's deep sense of justice. But that changes after the Death Note corrupts him. Viewing the world as corrupt, Light takes it upon himself to cleanse it. His grand vision? A utopia filled only with good people, with him as its divine ruler. He’s unwavering in his convictions, seeing his dark acts as the ultimate "sacrifice" for humanity.

Light's relationship with the Death Note turns him cold and ruthless. He's a utilitarian, willing to use any means to reach his endgame. Despite putting his family at risk, his love for them remains. When his sister Sayu is in danger, he guides his father to keep her safe, even if it aids his enemies.

Light wasn't always the cold-hearted Kira we know. When he loses his Death Note memories, he becomes a different person—more compassionate and hesitant to harm others. Once the memories come back, so does his ruthless Kira persona, lasting until his final breath.

Different versions of Light exist across adaptations. The manga and anime show him as unwavering and decisive, even willing to kill an FBI agent who's not a criminal. Yet, in the last anime episode, a defeated Light does show regret. The drama and Netflix film adaptations paint him as less confident and even hesitant in his mission. But through all versions, one thing is consistent: Light is an idealist who will go to any length to defend his concept of justice.

💡 Did you know? 💡

In the final episode of the anime, a defeated Light imagines a life he could have lived without the Death Note. This poignant moment adds a layer of depth to his character, showing a flicker of regret that's absent in most other adaptations.

Light Yagami's Background

Light Yagami hails from Japan and is part of a close-knit family. His dad, Soichiro Yagami, is a key member of the Japanese Task Force, the team hell-bent on catching Kira. Light's mom is Sachiko Yagami, and he has a younger sister named Sayu.

When we first meet Light, he's a third-year high schooler at Daikoku Private Academy. He's also taking extra classes at Gamou Prep Academy. Later, he steps into the academic halls of To-Oh University.

Light Yagami and Death Note Plot: Part I

The Day the Death Note Appears

In 2003 (or 2006 in the anime), Light finds a peculiar notebook at his school. Its cover says "Death Note," and it comes with a shocking rule: write someone's name, and they die. At first, Light doubts it. But after testing it, he learns it's all too real.

Light decides he's the only one who can bear the weight of changing the world. He meets Ryuk, the Shinigami who dropped the Death Note. Ryuk says he will write Light's name in his notebook when it's his time. Undeterred, Light sets his sights on ridding the world of evil.

The Cat and Mouse Game with L Begins

Light's deeds escalate quickly, drawing the attention of a genius detective called L. Their first clash is a public spectacle. L uses a man named Lind L. Tailor as bait on TV, claiming the broadcast is global. Tailor calls Kira evil, and Light, enraged, kills him.

But wait, there's a twist. L interrupts the broadcast to reveal Tailor was a decoy, a criminal set to die anyway. L even narrows down Kira's location to the Kanto area in Japan. Both Light and L declare themselves as "justice" and vow to take the other down. The high-stakes game of cat and mouse is officially on.

The FBI Enters the Scene

The game heats up as L joins forces with the Japanese police, including Light's dad, Soichiro. They form a Task Force aimed at capturing Kira.

Sneaky as ever, Light hacks into his dad's computer. He learns that L suspects Kira might be a student. To throw them off, Light kills criminals at hourly intervals. Why? To show he's got police info and sow distrust between L and the police.

While heading home one day, Ryuk warns Light he's being followed. Light's gears turn; he must find out who this stalker is and eliminate him.

Understanding the Death Note's Power

Ryuk spills some Shinigami secrets. They gain extra life when they use the Death Note to kill humans. They also have special eyes that reveal a person's name and lifespan. Ryuk offers these "Shinigami Eyes" to Light in exchange for half of Light's remaining life. Light says no. He needs a long life to rule his new world.

Then, a light bulb moment for Light: he'll use petty criminals to test how detailed a Death Note entry must be. This will help him uncover the name of the FBI agent following him. And so, the mind games continue.

Masterstroke: The Bus Incident

Light's ready with a plan. He's on a bus with his date, Yuri. His FBI tail, sitting just behind them, has no idea what's about to happen.

Before the bus ride, Light had already scripted the actions of a soon-to-be busjacker, Kiichiro Osoreda, using the Death Note. Right on cue, Osoreda hijacks the bus. Light uses this drama to coax his FBI follower into revealing his identity. The man shows his ID: Raye Penber.

Light has rigged it so Osoreda sees Ryuk and panics. Freaked out, Osoreda rushes off the bus and meets his pre-ordained, accidental end.

The Trap Unfolds

Back home, Ryuk is curious. Will Light kill Raye Penber now? Light's patient. Killing him immediately would be too obvious. Instead, he wants Penber to reveal the names of all FBI agents investigating the Japanese police.

Deadly Showdown

Days later, Light meets Penber at Shinjuku Station. Donning a hood, Light plays his final card. He instructs Penber via an earpiece to request names of all the FBI agents in Japan from a lower-ranking agent. Penber complies.

Inside a folder, Light had prepared envelopes with special sections for the agents' names. When Penber writes them down, he unwittingly seals their fates. At 4:42 PM, Penber dies of a heart attack, turning just in time to see Light.

Light goes home, unwraps the Death Note pages from the envelopes, and confirms the preset times for each agent's demise. One by one, they will all meet their end. The chess match between Light and L escalates.

Naomi Misora: The Unseen Foe

Naomi Misora steps into the Kira case after Raye Penber, her fiancé, dies. Smart and resourceful, she quickly zeroes in on a bus incident that Raye mentioned. Her instincts tell her Kira was on that bus. That's when she bumps into Light Yagami.

Light plays it cool. Using his father's position on the Task Force, he gains Naomi's trust bit by bit. Naomi, cautious, uses a fake name, Shoko Maki, to protect herself until she can reach L.

The Fatal Mistake

When Ryuk chuckles, Light senses Naomi's alias. He convinces her to reveal her true identity. Posing as a Task Force insider, he suggests that she could help catch her fiancé's killer. All he needs is her ID for confirmation.

Naomi shows her driver's license. Light wastes no time. He scribbles her name on a piece of the Death Note. She dies by suicide, exactly as he specifies. Her body is never found. Another player exits the game, and Light's path to his vision of justice is clear once again.

The Camera Trap

Light notices odd details at home: his doorknob position, a broken pencil lead, and a shifted piece of paper. He's sure L has bugged his room. To find the cameras, Light bribes Ryuk with apples.

He takes out scandalous magazines, pretending that's his big secret. At dinner, L announces on TV that 1500 investigators will join the Kira hunt. Light isn't fooled.

Studying for exams, Light uses a genius trick. He hides a mini-TV and a Death Note snippet inside a potato chip bag. While studying, he grabs names from the mini-TV and writes them down. From L's viewpoint, Light is just studying while criminals mysteriously die.

Light continues his secret killings. L removes the cameras, still puzzled. Light, now free from prying eyes, turns his focus on finding L through his dad. It's a match of wits, and both players are still in the game.

Face-to-Face with L

Light aces his exams and joins To-Oh University. There, he meets a strange student named Hideki Ryuga. He later reveals himself to be L, and Light's mind goes into overdrive.

At home, Light analyzes L's strategy. If he writes L's alias and the real Hideki Ryuga dies, Light becomes a suspect. He's eager for this mental showdown with L.

They play tennis, almost tied. Light realizes this game sets the stage for more "tests" from L. Light also plans to confirm L's identity through the Task Force.

After the game, L hints he suspects Light is Kira. They chat at a café, dodging psychological traps. L wants Light on the Task Force, adding another layer to their intricate game.

Light wants proof of L's identity through the Task Force. To his surprise, L agrees. Light confirms through his hospitalized dad, Soichiro, that this L is the real deal. The mental chess game escalates.

The Rise of the Second Kira

April 22, 2004, marks a pivotal moment. A new "Kira" appears on Sakura TV, demanding extreme actions from the police. This "Kira" even threatens to kill police officers and poses an ultimatum: the Director's or L's life.

Light sees the broadcast and realizes another Death Note holder is in play, likely one with Shinigami Eyes. This could muddy Kira's reputation, and Light decides he needs to be on the Task Force to manage both L and this new Kira.

Soon after, L invites Light to join the Task Force. At the meeting, Light is surprised by its small size. L informs him that only one outsider has a direct line to the investigation. Light strategizes, thinking if all but one Task Force member dies, the killer is revealed. He is keen to find out who this key outsider is. After viewing the investigation tapes, Light suggests another person may have Kira's abilities.

💡 Did you know? 💡

In the Death Note series, the "Shinigami Eyes" can see people's names and lifespans. This is a crucial element that differentiates the Second Kira from Light.

Light's Double-Edged Sword

Light realizes L's plan was foolproof. No matter what he said about the Second Kira, it would either bolster L's case or make him look suspicious. L proposes a unique role for Light: to pretend to be Kira and draft a speech. This results in an exchange of cryptic videos with the Second Kira.

Eventually, Light meets the Second Kira—Misa Amane. She's a fan, crediting Kira for avenging her parents' deaths. Despite her apparent loyalty, Misa comes with baggage, mainly her Shinigami, Rem. Rem vows to protect Misa at all costs, even if it means killing Light.

Light decides to date multiple women to mask his relationship with Misa. But Misa is unpredictable. She disobeys Light and meets him just two days after their first meeting, rather than the agreed-upon two weeks. Light convinces Rem to kill L for Misa's sake, setting a cautious plan in motion.

At campus, L snatches Misa's phone from her. He finds evidence linking Misa to the Second Kira, putting Light in a precarious position. Now, not only is Misa at risk, but her capture could also lead to Light's identity as the original Kira.

L Trap and Light Yagami Imprisoned

Trapped by L, Light initiates his complex plan. He switches ownership of the Death Notes, linking Rem to his notebook and Ryuk to Misa's. He also adds fake rules to the notebook, including a 13-day death rule. Light orchestrates Kyosuke Higuchi as the new Death Note owner and convinces L to imprison him.

While Light is confined, no criminals die. This seems to confirm his identity as Kira. On the seventh day, Light relinquishes his Death Note, erasing his Kira memories. After 15 days, criminals start dying again. On day 50, L frees both Light and Misa.

Soichiro takes a bold step by staging a fake execution. He shoots Light and Misa with blank rounds. This act convinces L to release them, closing a tense chapter in Light's strategic war against L.

Unlikely Partnerships and Yotsuba

Light takes on a new alias, "Light Asahi," to join L's investigation of Yotsuba and the new Kira—Higuchi. Misa isn't thrilled about the new alliance, especially when L handcuffs himself to Light.

Light refuses to manipulate Misa's feelings for information. Meanwhile, L grows gloomy, making Light question his commitment to the case.

After months of stalemate, Light links Kira's killings to Yotsuba's growth. He even poses as L to postpone further deaths. Thanks to this, they home in on Higuchi as the prime suspect.

Misa uncovers crucial evidence against Higuchi. During Higuchi's arrest, Light touches the discovered Death Note, regaining his memories. He takes ownership by killing Higuchi.

The Task Force finds the 13-day rule in the Death Note, clearing Light and Misa of suspicion. But L remains skeptical, keeping the tension high in this ongoing battle of wits.

Outsmarting L

Light directs Misa to find her hidden Death Note and regain her memories. Misa fails to recall L's real name, so she takes the Shinigami Eye deal again. This move sets Rem on a path she can't avoid: saving Misa by killing L and Watari.

After outwitting L, Light takes on his identity and gains control of the Kira task force. Now, he's both hunter and hunted, creating a perfect cover.

Over the next five years, Light uses L's database to expand Kira's reign. The world plunges into a new dark era where Kira's law is the only law that matters.

Light Yagami and Death Note Plot: Part II

Mello's Kidnappings and Near Involvement

Five years in, Takimura, the NPA chief, is kidnapped for the Death Note. FBI's John McEnroe enters the scene, asking for the Death Note and Task Force support. Feeling the heat, Light kills Takimura, stripping the kidnappers of their leverage. But they kidnap Sayu Yagami, pushing Light into a corner.

Light talks to Near for the first time. Near, who goes by N, is already on Light's trail after L's death. Light kills many of Near's team using the Death Note, forcing Near to divulge information on the kidnapper, Mello.

Multiple attempts to nab Mello fall apart, thanks to Shinigami Sidoh. Light has Misa send a message, saying Kira has given up the Death Note to a Task Force member. Light expects Matsuda to take the bait but is caught off-guard when his father, Soichiro, does.

Soichiro retrieves the Death Note but refuses to kill Mello. He's severely injured in the mission and later dies in the hospital. Before passing, he confirms that Light isn't Kira, sealing his trust in his son even in death.

Light Yagami vs Near and Mello's Pressure

Light brings in Demegawa to be Kira's mouthpiece. The goal? To outwit Near and Mello. The U.S. bows down to Kira, and Near's SPK disbands. Near keeps digging though, casting doubt on Light's innocence within the Task Force.

Mello lures Mogi to New York and SPK headquarters, putting Light in a bind. Will Mogi spill secrets? If Light kills him, he's suspect. But luck's on his side: Mogi keeps quiet. Light sends Kira followers to attack Near, who narrowly escapes.

Near deceives the Task Force, saying Mogi died. This heats up suspicions against Light. Aizawa spills info to Near, further confirming Light as Kira. Enter Teru Mikami, Misa's notebook successor, who proves loyalty by eliminating Demegawa.

Mikami picks Kiyomi Takada as Kira's new voice. Light and Takada, old flames, reignite their alliance. Covert chats confirm Mikami as Light's proxy. Light ensures surveillance is minimized, revealing his Kira identity to Takada. Both the Task Force and SPK set up base in Japan, setting the stage for the final battle.

The End of Light Yagami

Light and Takada keep communicating through written notes. He instructs her to feed Mikami fake names while he sends real ones. The idea? Outwit Near with a fake Death Note. Near tells Light he's investigating Takada. Light's still a step ahead—or so he thinks.

Days before the showdown, Mello kidnaps Takada. She kills him, but Light also kills her to erase traces. They all meet at Yellow Box Warehouse, just as Light expected. Mikami starts writing names. Only one name is missing, and that should be Kira's. But surprise—Near had swapped the real notebook.

Mikami had unknowingly exposed the real Death Note when he wrote Takada's name. Near catches on, and Light's unmasked as Kira. His laugh and arguments don't help him. Near states everyone has the right to their own morals; Kira's vision isn't universal.

Light tries one last trick, using a note scrap to kill Near. Matsuda fires at him. Light uses his own blood to finish writing, but Matsuda shoots again. Light is left severely injured. The team disarms Matsuda and seizes the note scrap, ending Light's reign as Kira.

Light Yagami's Final Moments

Manga Ending

In a heart-wrenching conclusion, Light faces a crumbling reality. He shouts at Mikami to write names, only to hear the notebook is fake. Mikami loses faith in him. Then, Light calls for Misa and Takada, but both are absent. Out of options, Light begs Ryuk for help. Ryuk, staying neutral, writes "Light Yagami" in his Death Note. Light's final thoughts scream, "I don't want to die," but the Death Note does its job. Light dies, closing the saga.

💡 Did you know? 💡

In the manga, the creator wanted to portray Light's end as tragic, emphasizing the futility of his god complex. The scene where he pleads with Ryuk highlights how far he had fallen, going from a "God of the New World" to a desperate man begging for his life.

Anime Ending

The anime takes a different turn. Mikami's dramatic suicide creates a diversion. Light, though wounded, manages to escape. Near tells the Task Force to let him go, but Aizawa isn't having it. They follow Light. In a poetic twist, Ryuk writes Light's name in another hidden warehouse. Just as Light breathes his last, an illusion of L shows up, completing a full circle from episode 25.

In a special follow-up, "Death Note Relight 2: L's Successors," Aizawa and Matsuda find the warehouse. Their faces say it all—they've found Light's lifeless body.

Light Yagami in Other Media

Film "Death Note"

The movie gives Light a fresh look. Here, he's a law student at a university, not a high-school genius. His drive isn't boredom but a deep frustration with Japan's flawed justice system. Before finding the Death Note, Light hacks into the government database and discovers they've given up on prosecuting many criminals. One rainy night changes everything—he finds the Death Note after a rage-filled encounter with Takuo Shibuimaru. Light meets Ryuk post-killing Shibuimaru.

He also has a girlfriend, Shiori Akino. Light ups the stakes, killing Shiori to manipulate L. Naomi Misora, another character, becomes a pawn in this deadly game and also meets her end.

Death Note: The Last Name

The second movie, "Death Note: The Last Name," continues the suspense. After Rem takes down L and Watari, Light takes an extreme step: trying to kill his own father by writing his name. But it fails. In a high-tension finale, Light urges Ryuk to write the Task Force members' names. Cops shoot Ryuk but he's unfazed and keeps writing. The twist? Light sees his own name in the Death Note.

As he dies, he pleads with his dad. "I did it for justice, Dad—the justice you taught me." The film fast-forwards to one year later, on Light's birthday. His sister Sayu admits that Kira did cut down crime but can't support him, as her brother was "killed by Kira." Tatsuya Fujiwara, famous for "Battle Royale," shines as Light.

Light Yagami's Film Transformation

In the films, director Shusuke Kaneko took special care in shaping Light's character. He made Light relatable at the start, tweaking the scene where Light first gets the Death Note. Why? To make it easier for viewers to feel connected to him. As Light dives deeper into darkness, Kaneko shows him as "enthralled," making audiences think, "Could I do something terrible like that?"

Kaneko went to great lengths to reveal Light's personality through his room—neat, filled with legal and academic books. Say goodbye to the stereo from the manga; in comes a vacuum cleaner to show Light's obsessive cleanliness.

Tatsuya Fujiwara, who plays Light, faced a unique challenge. Light doesn't have any distinct quirks, so it's all in the face! It's tricky to convey Light's genius without appearing too simplistic. Fujiwara even pushed for Light to cry in a scene, despite Kaneko's initial reluctance. Ultimately, Fujiwara said he could understand Light's twisted sense of justice.

💡 Did you know? 💡

Tatsuya Fujiwara had an emotional moment while filming. He insisted on a scene where Light cries, diverging from the director's vision that "Light doesn’t cry." The director found it so honest, he used the take in the final cut.

Light Yagami in TV Drama: A Different Take

Light takes on a very different vibe in the Japanese TV drama. Forget the cunning genius we know from the manga; here, Light is more of an everyman. A 20-year-old college student with a part-time pub job, his dreams are simple: become a civil servant and live a quiet life. And guess what? This Light is more emotional, even breaking into tears when he feels trapped by L. Quite the departure, isn't it?

Light Yagami and the Musical

Imagine Light Yagami breaking into song. Yep, you heard right. In the musical adaptation of Death Note, Light is pretty much the guy we know from the manga. Except this time, he's got pipes! The story sticks close to canon until Misa's confinement. After that, things move quickly towards the final face-off with L. And guess what? Ryuk, not content with Light's victories, ends Light's life in the final scene.

Various talented actors have brought Light to life on stage. Kenji Urai and Hayato Kakizawa starred in the 2015 Japanese production, and they're back for 2017. Hong Kwang-Ho and Han Ji-Sang took turns in the Korean versions. In the States, Jeremy Jordan lent his voice for the 2014 New York demo.

Light’s musical journey is peppered with several songs. From questioning justice in "Where is the Justice" to embracing his role as Kira and even engaging in a lyrical duel with L. It's the same Light, just more... musical.

Light Turner: The American Rendition

The 2017 Netflix film introduces us to Light Turner, played by Nat Wolff. He's not the genius you remember from the manga; he's an average student who makes money doing homework for others. However, this version of Light is less willing to go to extremes like his Japanese counterpart. He's reluctant to target law enforcement and even aims to impress his love interest, Mia Sutton, by using the Death Note.

Unlike manga Light, Turner lacks the ruthless streak that makes him so compelling. This cold-blooded edge is instead taken on by Mia, who is willing to kill cops to protect their identities. Light ends up killing Mia, but this action lands him in a coma. Once he wakes up, his father confronts him, having figured out that he is Kira. The film leaves us hanging, with Light's fate a mystery.

Light Yagami in the Gaming World

Light Yagami joins the action in Jump Force as a non-playable character, but his role is still crucial. When the real world blends with the "Jump" universes, his Death Note loses its lethal touch. Not deterred, Light helps the J-Force, a heroic alliance from various Jump worlds, to save the day. In a twist, he grabs an Umbra Cube at the end, a tool used by the game's villains. And yes, Light plans to use it "to make the world a better place." Gamer or not, you'll want to see how this plays out!

How was Light Yagami conceived?

According to Ohba, the creator, Light started off as a compassionate young man. If Ryuk hadn't dropped the Death Note, Light could have been a stellar police leader, fighting crime alongside L. But getting the Death Note changed everything. It warped his good intentions and boosted his already big ego. Now, he had god-like ambitions. Still, he loved his family and wanted a better world. Is he good or evil? Ohba says that's not the point; Light is a complex character with both light and dark sides.

When it comes to Misa Amane, Light is calculating. He sees her as a "bad person," using her while remaining emotionally distant. Even after erasing her Kira memories, he keeps her alive. Why? Perhaps it's just another layer in his complex personality.

Ohba didn't put much thought into Light's last name, Yagami, at first. But after the final scene in the manga, he saw a "deeper significance" in it. The name, which means "night god," gains extra layers as Light's journey unfolds.

💡 Did you know? 💡

The kanji for Yagami—"night" and "god"—add a poetic touch to Light's god-like ambitions and dark actions.

Light Yagami Design

Light's design was smooth sailing for Obata, the illustrator. The character was well-defined from the get-go: a smart but edgy honors student. As the series evolved, so did Light. Obata fine-tuned his drawing, removing extra lines to make Light appear more streamlined. When Light lost his memories in Chapter 35, Obata had to reboot. He returned to the drawing style of Chapter 1, rekindling Light's innocent look.

Clothing Light posed a challenge for Obata. He had to figure out what a genius would wear. After digging through fashion magazines, he decided on formal shirts. Light's clothes are well-fitted—no jeans for this guy. Why? Light's a "smart and formal guy," and his wardrobe had to reflect that.

For book covers, Obata used colors to set the mood. Light's color? Clear or almost colorless. It adds to the complex aura around him.

When asked who they most resembled, Ohba said maybe Light, because he was good in school. Obata mentioned Light as his second favorite human character. Was it because he "liked" Light or because it was thrilling to draw such a complicated character for young readers? He couldn't say for sure.

Light Yagami with a skeptical look

Debunked Myths of Light Yagami

"Light is purely evil"Light starts off wanting to make the world a better place, albeit through dark means. The character is morally complex, not just a one-dimensional villain.
"He feels no emotion"Light is shown to care for his family, and in some adaptations, he even has emotional outbursts. He's not a robot.
"Light never loses"Light faces many setbacks and challenges, especially from L and Near. He's not invincible.
"Light would have always been a criminal"According to Ohba, if Light had never found the Death Note, he could have been one of the world's greatest police leaders.
"He manipulates Misa just for his plan"While Light does manipulate Misa, he also keeps her alive even after she loses her memories of being Kira. There's a complex relationship there.

Frequently Asked Questions About Light Yagami

Why does Light Yagami call himself Kira?

Light adopts the name "Kira" as a cover. It's a clever trick. The name sounds like "killer," which fits his role as a death-bringer. But there's more. By using a name that sounds Japanese, he aims to mislead law enforcement. He wants them to think he's Japanese, hiding his true identity. So, "Kira" is both a disguise and a statement. It allows him to carry out his plan while staying in the shadows.

Why was Light Yagami wrong?

Light Yagami thought he was making the world better by killing criminals. He saw himself as a hero, a bringer of justice. But here's the catch: He took the law into his own hands. That's not justice; it's playing god. Light made judgments without due process, no trials or evidence. He thought his way was the only right way. This mindset led him down a dark path, hurting innocent people and those he loved. So while his goal might have seemed noble, his methods were flawed and unethical. Light was wrong because he broke the basic rules of justice and humanity.

Why did the police chase Light Yagami?

Light Yagami became a prime suspect in a series of killings known as the "Kira case." Law enforcement agencies from around the world teamed up to catch him. They believed Light was Kira, a vigilante who could kill people by writing their names in a supernatural notebook called the Death Note. This made him a target for the police, who wanted to stop the killings and bring him to justice.
