Now that I am no longer in the realm of the living, I have found it useful to have this blog in order to answer some questions and clear up any confusion about my life, personal or otherwise. Everyone is welcome, whether they be enemies or followers of Kira, or are simply curious about me. Thank you.
heralice asked: What would be the most terrible way to use Death Note in your opinion?
The worst way someone lucky enough (or not, depending on their mentality) to find a Death Note could use it would be by abusing its power for short-term personal gain, by hurting those around him/her and not thinking about benefiting the world. Someone who does not care about what he/she leaves behind once they die, as long as their lives were satisfactory enough. Like most of my victims. In reality, however, they were their own victims.
Anonymous asked: What your thought were about Mikami killing people who were lazy or didn't do work or weren't useful enough for society. I want to be useful for society someday but right now I'm not able to because I have serious depression. Would I deserve to die because of that...? I'll work hard trying to cure and be able to do stuff.
Mikami, of course, had his own views about how a perfect world could have been obtained. While one of the benefits of eliminating criminals was that it inflicted fear into the hearts of those who possessed immoral thoughts, the fear that Mikami was trying to build was on a lower level that was unnecessary, since order would have taken over the world in time with or without those measures.
Controlling every human being’s behavior and mental state would have been impossible, therefore I would have taken care of more inclusive circles, such as politics, economy and medicine. By ensuring their well-functioning, people would have willingly given up on their lethargy and realize that their actions could, in fact, lead to greater achievements.
heralice asked: This may be stupid question but... Is there something you miss about human world? And I don't mean people this time. I mean things, experiences or something like that?
Asking me to remember experiences that involved a certain amount of feelings and sensations from me is becoming an increasingly hard question. Not only because of the time I have spent here, into this unproductive environment, but also because of the sudden annihilation of any kind of sensation for the one that ends up here. Simply trying to remember how to feel or how that process took place is a time and energy consuming action, in which, unfortunately for me, I still cannot avoid engaging.
A simple answer would be that, frankly speaking, I miss simply existing in the human realm. Compared to this place, it is unimaginably more attractive for someone that cannot experience life in MU. I miss the opportunities life used to offer me through the people that cared for me and to whom I’ve never meant any harm, through my abilities and my work.
Now, I sometimes think that I should have enjoyed my life more, appreciate every breath and simple, apparently insignificant thing. But you can never do that before you realize life’s true importance, more specifically before you can no longer apply this knowledge.
askllawli asked: Hello, Light-kun. It's been a while, yes? How have you been? I've been quite entertained by toying with matsuda, playing small tricks on him. It's quite handy he can no longer see me, especially when I put food coloring in his shampoo. The world beyond is much more entertaining than I first had believed it to be.
L… I do envy the freedom of movement your state of existence, whichever that may be, provides you with, however I had never though you would enjoy investing time into such ephemeral actions. Thus, I apologize, but I must doubt your identity as being the one of the L I know.
As hard as it is to choose a specific favorite from the list of books that captivated me, philosophy comes to ease the difficulty of this choice.
”Beyond Good and Evil” by the German philosopher, Friedrich Nietzsche, was a book whose base principles managed to intrigue me. The approach it has towards moral consciousness and human beliefs is nothing less than interesting and I recommend it to anyone who wishes to gain time and add another grain of value to his life - knowledge is priceless, immortal.
futuremangaka asked: Light, what would you have done if it was L who found the Death Note and not you?
If L would have been the one to find the Death Note, my life would have, most likely, remained unchanged, since I would have never found out about the notebook’s existence. Perhaps, if I had ever got the chance to work alongside L and win his trust, he would have decided to show me a very dangerous object that he had found and which he had been keeping under strict surveillance, known as the Death Note. From that point, I don’t believe that anything could have changed in my life, even if the same revolutionary thoughts would have started to run through my mind. I would not have chosen to risk my career and life for such a seemingly impossible dream.
Anonymous asked: Would you consider yourself to be a sociopath?
Should I make the presumption that you are a bit quick at judging others’ actions? I do agree with you that I had a firm determination of seeing my goal completed and, indeed, maybe my actions would seem inhuman to most people, but then again, you’re making the common mistake of ignoring the circumstances that forced me into killing innocent people. Even so, I had, still have, pure ideals and a very sane mind.
Anonymous asked: Let's say the world is perfect now. You have made it perfect. Would you then go to the public and say that you're Kira? Then you would be more or less become a dictator. Or do you say very clearly that people shouldn't know who you really are. Hands it to you, if you secretly Kira stay and your real existence, Light Yagami, remains secret?
Revealing my real identity would not have helped me in any way, it would have, in fact, become a disadvantage in certain situations. Remaining incognito in public would have been the best choice, considering any eventual maneuvers that I might have had to make.
As for the world, revealing myself would’ve been pointless, since there would have been no need for them to know who Kira actually was, nor would I have had to gain their trust by exposing myself, since I would have already won their ultimate respect or, at least, obedience, as their one and only savior.
I was never in search of fame, as the mere thought of holding such a great, life-changing power, able to create an utopia by my hands gave me enough satisfaction.
theworldsgreatestminds asked: Light Yagami... dead? This is impossible. I am certain that Kira is currently alive. Unless... I suppose you must be some kind of alternate version... knowing what I now know of the supernatural, it would not surprise me. At least it is satisfying to know I defeated you in another reality. Rest in peace, Light-kun. -L
Well then, I shall not choose to spoil the surprise of the course of events, in case our alternate realities turn out to be more similar than expected, if they truly exist and you are, indeed, who you claim to be.
Yes, you could say that your efforts resulted in my downfall, however I’d have to say that I was expecting more from you, L. I will not say more, since my time and reality connected to that period have met their end, but I would like to ask you to keep me informed with the way your case is unraveling, not as a defeated enemy, but as a curious entity, waiting for its bounds to the human world to be untied.
I don’t see how I could possibly be reborn if my soul is captive in this timeless realm called MU. If there truly are other dimensions, then that though might hold some truth to it, although I’m not sure how much of it exactly. The chances that a human would reincarnate as a shinigami seem rather low, but it would not impossible…
Anonymous asked: WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE INANIMATE OBJECT
I would have to say that my watch was one of my personal belongings of which I was quite fond. Not only had it always worked perfectly, but it was a gift from my father as an acknowledgement of my hard work. Seeing my family proud, therefore happy as a result of my efforts would always make me happy. That watch reminded me that I could and would bring more happiness not only to my family, but to as many people as possible through hard work.
I would doubt that affirmation if I were you… However, if I were you, I’d consider taking the time to better understand my past experiences which, if unknown to you, I could gladly disclose for further clarification. This time, though, I’ll analyze this issue.
A narcissist would never admit that he is wrong. Not even to himself, mind you. How could that possibly ever put someone in the position that his points of view would not affect his judgement of events and, in the end, his goals? I have always been as sincere as my plan would allow me to, however that does not mean that the lies I had to tell brought me any less pain.
Me, a narcissist? The one who agreed to live at the mercy of a bored, rather irritating shinigami just for the good of others? The one who would always choose the path most favorable for the ones close to me? No, anon, it does not work that way…
