You know how in that shitty mango called naruto pretty much no one ever dies? This mango is almost like the exact opposite of that. I was constantly like "Oh, hey. This guy is pretty fucking cool...," and then a couple pages later he'd step on a landmine or get fucking liquified by a barrage of gunfire or some shit.
FUCK YEAH. This was pretty much the first thing that popped into my head when I started reading this thread. Loved that manga. Kenji = <3
Battle Royale -Seinen (Koushun Takami)
Based off a novel, it's a manga about a modern gladiator-like game thing, where they take classes of kids, give em weapons and have them all fight each other to the death. While it's happening they record it and then broadcast it as a show. And if you're wondering I don't think they're trying to play it off as a fake or anything. It seems that the government is completely alright with the whole thing since it brings in a lot of money.
Also, prepare to lol when you see the artwork of the spin off manga "Battle Royale 2: Blitz Royale."
Also, read Gantz.
Edit: Also, about the Death Note thing. Yeah, he was a genius, but his ego got in his way. He wanted to show the world that he is a god not to be fucked with, and L showed the world that he couldn't kill anyone he wanted. And because of that Light put himself at risk to get closer to L so he could take the fucker down. So there was a reason to make sense of, though it may not have been the smartest, I'm sure Light knew that as well (or rather the authors). Humans can't be all logic and shit because we are bound by passions and emotions. Not to mention if he let L get away, then others might not be as ready to obey his rule.
