We all know the anime Death Note . It has been famous for as long as it can be remembered. However did you know that expect the anime and movie adaption there exist 2 books not related to the anime itself?
The Los Angeles BB Murder Cases is a death note novel that happens before the story of death note unfolds. There’s a serial killer loose in Los Angeles and the local authorities need help fast. For some reason the killer has been leaving a string of maddeningly arcane clues at each crime scene. Each of these clues, it seems, is an indecipherable roadmap to the next murder. Onto the scene comes L, the mysterious super-sleuth. Despite his peculiar working habits, he’s never shown his face in public—but this time, he needs help. Enlisting the services of an FBI agent named Naomi Misora, L starts snooping around the City of Angels. It soon becomes apparent that the killing spree is a psychotic riddle designed to specifically engage L in a battle of wits. Stuck in the middle between killer and investigator, it’s up to Misora to navigate both the dead bodies and the egos to solve the Los Angeles Murder Cases.
Mello narrates the book with the intention that Near and Kira will read it. He attempts to write about the case in the beginning in a simple and speculative manner, as if he were writing a true crime report. Shortly into the story, he adopts a novelist’s style as he begins to record the thoughts and feelings of the characters. He rarely catches himself and switches back to the other style. When Mello has anything to add, he will even occasionally interrupt the narrative. He provides information about Watari’s orphanage, Wammy’s House, and the methodology used to raise geniuses like L, Mello, and Near. In addition to Naomi’s persona, the narrative focuses on L’s operations,and was written primarily to point out to Near Mello’s superior knowledge of L, and to Kira, his inferiority to L.
Naomi Misora is also the main character of the book . The story happens before her death in the anime Death Note
Beyond Birthday the antagonist
The story itself is so marvelous and special it has a gripping plot and it keeps you always in suspense. If you miss the feeling of Death Note then i recommend you to read this masterpiece.
