A shinigami who is the god of death, can kill anyone, as long as he knows the face of his victim and writes his name in a notebook called “Death Note”. One day, Ryuk, bored by the lifestyle of a shinigami and interested to see how a human would use the notebook, drops it into the human realm. High school prodigy Light Yagami is the one who stumbles upon the notebook and tests its capabilities by writing the name of a criminal on it. When the criminal dies immediately after his experiment, Light is shocked and quickly realizes how devastating the power he has now gained could be.
