L or Light?

I liked the anime. IT WAS AMAZIN! It's sad what happened. They could've been such good friends. So L or Kira?

I think L is a more interesting character, but only by a small margin. It's mostly the battle of wits between the two that makes Death Note great. Light is evil in a very entertaining way, and he's also kind of the scrappy underdog in the story, often surprised by L's deductions and struggling to keep up.

Although I like L more overall, Light does have my favorite scene in the whole series: the part where he reveals that he's Kira to Naomi Misora, and she has like 5 seconds to soberly reflect on what just happened before the DN kicks in. The way he allows himself to savor his victory is what makes Light such a great villain.

I like Light. Something about L I don't like. He finds things out too fast like how he knew Kira was a student and all.

I also LOVE that scene that Elsewhere described. Definitely my favorite scene ever in DN!

And I also agree with ThomasPaine... I don't think L was 'smart', I think the writers just flung information at him that he shouldn't have found out so quickly. It would've been nice to see L struggle for once. Would've been more realistic. Not to mention L may have been the best detective at the time, but I'm sure he hasn't dealt with fantasy like situations like the death note... D: If he had thought it through logically, and was stuck on the fact that death Gods didn't exist, that would've led the story somewhere far more interesting... *cough* Sorry! Ranting!

I choose Light! I love him so much, and I can see where he was going with his logic. He was trying to help the world in his own way. D:

One L : Two Light

You're guy' answers are good. I can't decide anymore. X.x

I never noticed this. This makes me appreciate Light more.

L, because his actions are more moral (on death) than Light's

At first I liked Kira and what he stood for, ya know that whole "only killing the murders and rapist for JUSTICE!" but then he went all power hungry and evil

Well when I watched the first episode I thought he could be kinda cool but then at the end of the episode he was all bent on becoming god and that turned me off of him completely.
So L was the one I liked more.
I just love how awkward he can be even though he's like the world's greatest detective. It's cute. X3
Also he was the first anime character I even cosplayed as (Though I think I'll probably redo him in the future since I had the worst hair day ever that day).

Though surprisingly I've kinda been wanting to cosplay as Light for some reason.

Otherwise I guess I like L more than Light. -^^-

I gotta give it to Kira to have such a brilliant mind and what his beliefs were....

but I choose L for being such a really an interesting character, for someone to be the world's greatest detective to look and act that way he is, is just something very unique! I just think he's just one of those character that is pretty interesting to pay attention to!

There's somthing about Light that I really like. L is adorable but i guess i really like how smart and manipulative Light is. I think I really like how he's the main charater but the villain at the same time, too.
