Death Note, Vol. 7: Zero - Tsugumi Ohba, Takeshi Obata

Yeah, right.
Now go kill yourself.

Why did L have to die? I've already watched the anime, but in my opinion Near, Mello and Matt can't make up for the loss L has left. This all only feed my disgust of Light.

I've already started reading Death Note #8, because for some reason, I always end op reading just 2 or 3 books, and I want to finally finish this series.
