You are not Kira. That is, it will be a problem if you were Kira. Because… I feel you are the first friend that I've ever had.

L to Light Yagami

Friend (友達, Tomodachi) is the fourteenth episode of the Death Note anime series.


Light gains Misa's trust and decides he can use her eyes to eliminate L. When she accepts on the condition that Light date her, he threatens to kill her if she does not obey his orders. In return, Rem threatens to write Light's name in her Death Note if any harm comes to Misa, even though saving Misa will kill her. Light is stuck in the position of having to protect Misa and see her regularly. To make matters more complicated, he discovers that she is a famous model.

An audiotape being broadcast from the Second Kira announces loyalty to Kira, and L suspects that Kira and the Second Kira have met and are working together. This heightens suspicion on Light, as the tape did not demand L show his face, and Light knows L's face. Light counters this claim, but discussion comparing Light to Kira upsets Soichiro. L calls Light his first friend, but he quietly tasks Mogi with tracking Light's whereabouts.

Misa visits Light again, angering him and drawing Mogi's suspicion. In private, Light questions Rem's devotion to Misa, and because it will make Misa happy and keep her safe without killing Rem, Rem agrees to kill L.

Rules Learned[]

  • How to Use: X #1 - "Suicide" is a valid cause of death. Basically, all humans are thought to possess the possibility to commit suicide. It is, therefore, not something "unbelievable to think of."
  • How to Use: X #2 - Whether the cause of the individual's death is either a suicide or accident, if the death leads to the death of more than the intended, the person will simply die of a heart attack. This is to ensure that other lives are not influenced.
