The world is rotting...The gods of death themselves have no further purpose, and have become mere shadows of their former selves. Humans have become even more wicked, crime sky-rocketing with every new venue opened....Both worlds are slowly decaying, toying with the human race for both enjoyment and fear for one's own death. But when one Shinigami decides to end his boredom once and for all, humanity is dealt it's greatest threat. The Death Note: a notebook shinigami's use to specify the deaths and their causes of human beings (outside natural causes), falls into human hands. Light Yagami's hands to be exact. Tired of watching humans hurt each other for their own selfish gain, he decides to become the enforcer of justice in the new age. The age of LIGHT! Will he truly become a god among men, or will Ryuk, the former owner of Light's Death Note, be his own undoing?
