Light Yagami is a high school student who stumbles across a Death Note, or a diary of death. Whoever is written in this notebook will die and there are plenty of celebrities and annoyances that Light will gladly get rid of. He takes it upon himself to be the god of a new world, and maybe will make a fan club or two. Accompanied by a god of death or shinigami named Ryuk, and being chased by idiotic detectives, there's bound to be plenty of chaos and laughter by the end.

  • 1: Don't. Just Don't. Seriously.
  • 2: Death Notes are extremely flammable. Keep out of the reach of humans.
  • 3: It is perfectly fine for complete strangers to give orphans life lessons. It's not like their parents are going to complain. Visit your local orphanage today!
  • Pi: 3.1415926535....And don't forget the apples.
  • 4: Never make out with your girlfriend infront of your Shinigami. They get jealous.

  • 56: When you fly Southwest Shinigami, you're bags fly free! As long as there are none.
  • 57.2: It is ok for there to be a Kira Copycat, but if a copycat copies the Kira Copycat, then the Copycat is in direct violation of the Copycat Clause.
  • 67: If your snacks are talking to you, seek out your local Shinigami for immediate medical attention.
  • 69: Rule 96 was a lie! Ha ha ha!
  • 83: This rule must always follow Rule 82.
