Volume 5 of the hit Death Note manga keeps up the pace in a fantastic way.
Now Light (Kira) is at the edge of his plans the police and L have to use all of there wits to out beat Light in someway. But this proves harder than they think as Light has one ace up this sleve.

As always the fantastic manga hits it right on the spot.

For all you death note readers just keep on going.

Having loved the previous i have to say i am slightly dissapointed with reading this.

*Spoiler alert*

i know that light cant kill people 24 seven and i suppose it is a nice break, but maybe too long of a break? i thought that although it was (obviously) a good book, it didnt live up to the other 4 books so far. i wanted more killing!! come on kira live up to your name! but i do understand this is all part of lights plan... im sure it will become an amazing story once again... obviously this is a must read if you love deathnote and are reading the series but dont expect any of the gripping and trilling "OMG whats going to happen now?!" moments. hopefully there will be something in book 6 to pick this one up.

The fifth volume of the brilliant Death Note manga opens with Light in jail under suspicion of being Kira. In order to get out of this predicament he gives up the Death Note and all memories associated with it and when the murders continue while Light is in prison L decides that Light can be released but must remain under his constant surveillance. As the murders continue it becomes apparent that Kira seems to have changed tact as rather than make the world a better place they seem to be targeted at the world of big business.

Death Note continues to fascinate and entertain and the addition of a more self motivated Kira is a nice if not terribly original addition to the story. Also another good thing about this volume is that rather than reveal the identity of the new Kira right away as they did with Misa the story keeps you guessing as to their identity throughout. If there is a problem with this volume of the story it is that, despite the addition of the new Kira, it has the feel that it is mainly setting things up for the future rather than telling the story itself. In spite of this small matter I can definitely see why so many people are raving about this excellent manga.

This is an awesome manga series and I have loved reading every volume. The story really starts heating up now and there are many twists and turns in the book. I don't want to give any details as to what happens just in case you read the review before you buy the volume. But if you buy this you will not be disappointed.

Meh... This is the first book in this series that has been disappointing. It just doesn't have the same 'feel' as the others. And I think its because Light is now oblivious to his former self and what/who he was before all memories of the death note were carried out. He was such an interesting character when he and L were playing their game of wits. But in this one he is now one of the good guys and I just didn't like it. It was a little boring and slow and not much happened for most of the book.

But... the only thing that has left me optomistic for future volumes is that the last chapter was really really good! The pace picks up the plot gets 'interesting' again. So I'm hoping this continues into volume 6 so that I can get back to loving this series again. Still recommend the series overall but not a huge fan of this volume.

The series continues with the introduction of a third Kira and the shadowy, evil corporation of Yatsuba.

I felt like this fifth volume was slower, it exists to bridge the gap and set the future plot for the rest of the series...I guess a book like this was necessary to inject new life into it. There wasn't much focus on Light, the first Kira, but I still enjoyed it enough to want to continue.

I started out with the paperbacks, but changed to the ebooks for this volume.
This instalment of the series is my favourite so far, it is getting better and better! I won't reveal any plot points, but if you have enjoyed the series so far, then this is definitely with getting. Up until this volume I had enjoyed, but not necessarily loved the series, but that has changed instantly! I couldn't put it down, it was that good!

Still brilliant! I can't stop reading! I much prefer reading books instead of a screen but having it on the kindle is easier and for only £3.32 it's definitely worth it! Can't wait to get started on book six! :)
