Ryuk: It's been five days. Now then. I'd better get going.
Shinigami A: You're heading somewhere, Ryuk?
Shinigami B: Hate to tell you, but a whole world looks like this.
Ryuk: That's true but I've dropped my Death Note.
Shinigami: Haha, you really messed things up, didn't you?
Shinigami: Hold on a sec, didn't you already trick the old man to get a second book?
Don't tell me you dropped both.
Shinigami: You must have some idea where you dropped the thing?
Ryuk: Yeah. The human world.
Mom: What a nice surprise. I wasn't expecting you home so early.
Light: Yeah. Hi, Mom, it's because...oh... the results of the nationwide exams.
Mom: I've be waiting all day.
Mom: Goodness! No.1 again!
These are the highest scores you've had.
Light: Yeah, I guess.
I'm going to study in my room, so please don't interrupt me, OK?
Mom: As you wish.
Oh, Light. Do you want anything at all, dear?
You can ask whatever you like.
Light: No, I'm fine, Mom. Thanks, though.
Light: I've already got what I want.
Ryuk: You've taken quite a liking to that.
Ryuk: No reason to act surprised.
I am the Shinigami Ryuk.
That used to be my own book.
Judging by your laughter, you've already figured out what you have is no ordinary notebook.
Light: Shinigami. A God of Death, huh.
No, I'm not surprised. In fact, Ryuk, I've been waiting for you.
Light: I've already figured out that the Death Note I found is real.
It didn't take me long.
And now I've witnessed the proof of its power.
I only feel more confident for what I'm going to do.
Ryuk: That's interesting. I certainly wasn't expecting this.
Several Death Notes have made their way into the human's world and passed, but you are the first to have written this many names.
Look at how many people you've killed in only five days.
Most are reluctant to write this much.
Light: I've already prepared myself, Ryuk.
I used the notebook even though I knew it belonged to Shinigami.
And now that Shinigami has come, so what'll happen to me? You are here to take my soul, right?
Ryuk: Hm? What do you mean?
Is that some fantasy you humans came up with?
I'm not gonna do anything to you.
Ryuk: The notebook becomes part of human realm from the very moment it touches the earth.
In other words, the notebook is now yours.
Light: This is mine?
Ryuk: If you don't want it, just give it to someone else, but if you give it away, I'll have no choice but to erace your memories of the notebook.
Light: So then you are saying I can use the Death note all I want and won't be punished?
Ryuk: Let's just say this: you will feel the fear and pain known only to humans who've used the notebook.
And when it's your time to die, it will fall on me to write your name in my Death Note.
Be warned any human who used the Death Note can neither go to heaven nor hell for eternity.
Now you have something to look forward to after you die.
Ryuk: It will be all right. Answer it.
Light: What is it?
Mom: I thought you'd like some apples.
The neighbor's brought them over for us.
Wow, why on earth is it so dark in your room?
It's ruining your eyesight.
Light: What's going on? Mom can't see him?
Ryuk: That's the notebook you found, originally belonged to me.
And since you're now using it, you are the only one who is able to see me.
And of course my voice can only be heard by you.
In other words, the Death Note is the bond between Light the human and Ryuk the Shinigami.
Light: Yeah, I just have one more question I wanna ask you.
Why was I chosen for this?
Hey, are you even listening?
Ryuk: Apples in the human world are worth the trip.
What's the best way to describe these? Juicy?
Light: Just answer my question.
Ryuk: Ha, I didn't choose you.
Don't you see this is all just an accident.
You actually thought you were chosen because you were so smart or something?
Don't be so vain.
It just happened to fall around here and you just happened to pick it up.
And that's all there is to it.
That's why I wrote instructions in English, the most popular language in the human world.
Light: Then why did you drop it in the first place?
You even wrote down the specific instructions.
So don't try to tell me this was an accident.
Ryuk: You are asking why?
I did it because I was bored.
Light: You were bored?
Ryuk: The truth is Shinigami haven't got much to do these days.
Most of the time rather taking naps, gambling.
If you take the time to write names in your Death Note, the others will just laugh at you working so hard.
Even if you wrote the name of another Shinigami, it would be poinless because they wouldn't die.
And since we live in the Shinigami realm, it brings us no amusement to kill those in the human world either.
So I figured out the most fun is I came down here myself.
Anyway I am surprised that so many names you've written.
But I want to know why you only wrote the cause of death for that guy who was hit by the truck.
Light: If you don't write down the cause of death, the victim dies of a heart attack.
And that's probably the best thing about the Death Note.
Light: You see, I've already exhausted the list of the world major criminals.
And eventually I'm getting rid of them all.
Ryuk: What's the point in doing that?
Light: It's only a matter of time before people figure out that these criminals
are being eliminated by someone.
I want the world to know of my existence; that someone out there passing righteous judgement on the wicked.
Ryuk: Why even bother? What are you trying to achieve by passing judgement on them?
I mean why do you care?
Light: Because I've been bored, too.
