Death Note season 1 episodes list:
Light Yagami is a high school genius bored with life in general. Ryuk, a shinigami, is also bored, so he decides to drop his Death Note (a notebook shinigami use to kill humans) on Earth. Light finds this mysterious book and decides to rid the world of all wicked people and rule a utopia as a god.
Light falls into the first of many of L's attempts to uncover him from his Kira alter ego.
Ryuk informs Light that he's being followed and asks Light if he wants to make a trade for his own Shinigami eyes. But at what cost?
Light creates a complex plan involving the Death Note and another criminal to try and expose his follower's name and identity.
After finding the true identity of his follower, Light uses him to deal a major blow to the rest of his enemies.
Furthering the Kira investigation, the remaining police force finally meets L.
Light meets Penber's fiance — an ex-officer who is determined to hunt down Kira.
Discovering that L has went so far as to tap his room with cameras, Light comes up with a plan to throw off his suspicions.
Still suspicious of Light's too-perfect behavior, L decides to take drastic measures and enters the same university to meet Light face to face.
L begins to profile Light through a game of tennis, and brings up some questions regarding the Kira case hoping to figure out the truth about him.
The Sakura TV station plans to air Kira's home-made videos. Little do they know that the videos will bring more than ratings.
After seeing the message "Kira" sent, the task force decide to make a reply and adds Light to the force. Yet while the task force and L try to find the fake "Kira" Light has to find her first or else the existence of the Death Note will be revealed!
The Task Force and Light continue to try and find the second Kira based on the evidence they keep receiving from him. Little do the other officers know that Light wants to find him for the sake of bettering his position as Kira.
Light furthers his plans as Kira after meeting with the very annoying second Kira.
Light tries using the second Kira to find out L's real name. However, L is well prepared for Kira's next move and is able to get one of the Kiras in his custody soon enough.
After renouncing ownership of both Death Notes, Light turns himself in to L and is imprisoned.
Getting nowhere fast, L thinks of a new plan to get Misa, Light, and Mr. Yagami out of confinement. Meanwhile, Rem finds a new person to play as Kira.
Tensions rise among the Task Force as the Kira investigation continues with the close surveillance of the Yotsuba corporation. But when the Force finds that the police are no longer supporting the case, the members are forced to choose between keeping their jobs or resigning to continue searching for Kira.
Matsuda makes the Kira investigation more difficult for the Task Force when he gets himself captured by the Yotsuba corporation.
L has bugged the secret meeting in the Yotsuba corporation and the task force is divided between those who want to stop the killing by arresting the 7 members of the Yotsuba corporation and those who want to wait to know who is actually Kira.
The Task Force uses Misa as a way to get closer to the Yotsuba corporation. But things get complicated when Rem tries to communicate with her.
Thanks to Misa, the Task Force now knows the identity of the new Kira and L plans an elaborate scheme to smoke him out of hiding.
L and the Task Force close in on Higuchi who continues to play into their hands. But as time before Kira's identity is revealed on Sakura TV gets closer, Higuchi gets desperate and makes the deal for shinigami eyes.
While Higuchi is finally captured, Light inadvertently regains his memories as Kira.
L continues to interrogate Rem, while Light manipulates Rem into killing off the greatest obstacles in his way.
A transmission intended for L's successor shows all of L's findings on the Kira case. Afterwards, Light furthers his plans for a utopia, dividing the world into those who support and those who fear Kira.
Five years later, two new enemies prepare themselves to challenge Kira. While one tries to find Kira with the help of the newly established group, the SPK, the other takes a more drastic measure by kidnapping someone very close to Soichiro and Light.
Near collaborates with Light in order to rescue Sayu, who is being held hostage in exchange for the Death Note.
Mortified over allowing the Death Note to fall into Mello's hands in order to save his daughter, Soichiro puts himself into harm's way in order to get it back.
Tensions heat up between Light and Near as Near collects more details on the Death Note. Information insults fly back and forth, and Light is forced to act, in fear that his identity as Kira and L will be exposed.
Kira's plan to kill Near backfires and suspicions arise in the Japan Headquarters concerning Kira’s true identity in Light. Kira realizes he must hand off the Death Note once again and finds a new follower.
Teru Mikami has always had a sense of justice and brought it upon himself to distinguish between good and evil. Now a grown adult, Teru serves under Kira and uses his newly acquired powers to choose a Kira spokesperson to replace Demegawa.
Near comes closer and closer to the truth about who is who. He lays traps for Kira as Kira does the same for Near, setting the stage for the mounting final battle.
It is confirmed within the task force that Light is up to something in his meetings with Kiyomi. After exhaustive research, Near decides he can move into the final stages of his plan to expose and humiliate Kira.
Light and Near agree upon a meeting place for the final confrontation. A key player is kidnapped and the end results are shocking.
The Japanese Task Force and the SPK finally meet at YellowBox Warehouse on January 28th. However, a third party has come to the warehouse as well, on Kira's orders to kill everyone else there.
The climactic battle between Light Yagami and L's successors finally comes to a close.
