How to Use It: XLIX

Six Death Notes are prominently used in the film Death Note: Light Up the NEW World and its novelization.

Overview[]

In the film and novelization, the Shinigami King says that whoever finds a new Kira can become king after him. According to the rules, only six Death Notes can be active in the Human World at once. As a result, six Shinigami bring six Death Notes to Earth, which are initially used by six different people.

Yuki Shien and the Japanese Task Force both try to collect all six Death Notes. If Shien collects all six, then the notebooks can only be used for Kira's purpose. If the Task Force collects all six, then the notebooks can be secured, preventing anyone else from using another a Death Note on Earth.

The six Death Notes' initial human owners and Shinigami in the new series:

Shien tracks down most of the Death Notes, which he passes to Mishima before his death. When Mishima is captured, all six Death Notes come into the possession of the Task Force.

The six notebooks are given to a group to contain. However, the unit transporting them to a secure location is attacked. Some of the Death Notes are destroyed, but at least one is in use again and people begin dying of heart attacks. Which of the six Death Notes were destroyed is not revealed.

The Shinigami who brought it to the Human World is Bepo. Sakura first uses it to kill Karin Kanatomo, and later to go on a killing spree.

The third Death Note revealed in the film is used by Yuki Shien to kill Sakura, but Shien is not the initial owner.

Ryuk brings the Death Note back to the Human World to give to Light's son Hikari Yagami. Hikari uses it with his guardian Teru Mikami as a new Kira. Hikari's first shown victim is Rokuro Natsugawa.

Mikami eventually kills Hikari and takes ownership, but he is immediately gunned down by Tsukuru Mishima and ownership falls to him. Mishima later has Ryuk pass the Death Note to Yuki Shien, who uses ƒit to help him track down the other Death Notes in use in the Human World. Shien later passes it to Misa Amane to gain her trust and cooperation. Upon Misa's death, ownership passes back to Shien, who passes it back to Mishima before Shien's death.

Ryuzaki's Death Note[]

Ryuzaki is shown to have one of the Death Notes, and the Shinigami is Arma. How Ryuzaki obtained the Death Note, such as if he tracked it down through a case, is unclear.
