Death Note, Volume 9

Author: Tsugumi Ohba

Series: Death Note #9
Rating: 3 / 5 stars
Verdict: Borrow
Can I start by saying that I’m still not convinced Mello is a guy?  He most definitely looks like a girl.
The focus of this volume shifts away from Light a good deal to focus on the rivalry between Near and Mello as both try to stop Kira first.  And while I loved the back and forth between Light and L, the battle between Light/Near/Mello just isn’t quite as exciting as it was between Light and L.
The noose finds itself tightening around Light a little, and for the first time he might be outmatched.  So the suspense is still there, it’s just not quite as intense.
