A high school student named Light Turner discovers a mysterious notebook that has the power to kill anyone whose name is written within its pages, and launches a secret crusade to rid the world of criminals.
Producer Masi Oka makes a cameo as a Japanese police detective.
Rule one: The human whose name is written in this note shall die.
Ryuk says that nobody has been able to write his name in the Death Note, several times says that previous owners have only been able to write two of the four letters that make up his name, but when Ligth is reading the rules, the phrase "Ryuk is not to be trusted" is clearly seen.
Correction - Ryuk is referring to someone writing his name to be killed, since what we saw was just a warning this is why the writer wasn't killed before he/she could finish.
The closing credits are written in the same style as the Death Note instructions.
