Higuchi Kyosuke (Shuji Kashiwabara) dies immediately after his arrest as the Third Kira. A rule in Higuchi's black Death Note, which reads 'If the person using the Note fails to consecutively write names of people to be killed within 13 days of each other, then the user will die' forces L (Kento Yamazaki) to admit that Light (Masataka Kubota) must be innocent. He then asks that Light continue investigating the Kira with him as a friend.
Death Note is a Japanese television drama series based on the manga series of the same name by Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata.
Light Yagami is a genius high school student who discovers the 'Death Note', a notebook that kills anyone whose name is written in it, as long as the writer has seen that person's face. After experimenting with the notebook, Light meets the Shinigami Ryuk, the notebook's original owner, who dropped the notebook to the human world out of boredom.
