Yonkoma (4コマ, lit: "four-cell"), or a four-panel comic, is a short comic consisting of four panels. They are generally gag comic strips.

List of Death Note yonkoma[]

The Death Note manga series had several yonkoma. Most were published in issues of Akamaru Jump, and one was published in Shonen Jump Gag Special 2005 "Jump Heroes Super 4-Panel Competition!"

Most were later reprinted in Death Note 13: How to Read, pgs. 216-224:

  • Pages 216-217 show the yonkoma that were published in Akamaru Jump 2004 Spring.
  • Pages 218-219 show the yonkoma that were published in Akamaru Jump 2004 Summer.
  • Pages 220-221 show the yonkoma that were published in Akamaru Jump 2005 Winter.
  • Pages 222-223 show the yonkoma that were published in Akamaru Jump 2005 Spring.
  • Page 224 shows the yonkoma that was published in the Shonen Jump Gag Special 2005.

These thirteen yonkoma were republished in Death Note: Short Stories as a single chapter. Another was published in Weekly Shonen Jump No.4-5, 2004. Light, dressed as Santa, asks "Ryukie" what he wants for Christmas. Ryuk asks for a Gameboy Advanced SP, which is more money than Light wants to spend.

An additional yonkoma - collaborating with one of Ohba's other series, Platinum End - was released in Weekly Shonen Jump #2344 - No. 3-4, 2016.

Characters[]

The characters are given an introduction in Death Note: How to Read 13 because they are slightly different from their counterparts in the series. Since the yonkoma are for comical reasons, even their introductions are semi-humorous.

  • Light: "The chosen brainiac with a knack for funny comments. His serious demeanor makes him the butt of jokes."
  • L: "Holder of the world's greatest mind and the powerful ability to act like a fool. It's like he was born to be mocked."
  • Misa: "Along with Sayu, one of the two heroines of our story. Check out her sexiness, which has received a power boost compared to the main series."
  • Ryuk: "A weird guy with a passion for apples. He may be the character that's least different from his series version."
