Listen for the voice of God then follow it, and know that in time you will find your salvation.

— English teacher ("Rebirth")

Light's unnamed English teacher is a minor character appearing early on in the series.


English teacher

The teacher has fair skin and slightly curly, light-brown hair. He wears a dull, gray suit with a black tie, and black-framed glasses with lenses that appear white, blocking out his eyes.


At the start of the series, Light is in his English class, zoning out, and his teacher is reading a passage. Noticing that Light is not paying attention, he calls on him to translate the following sentence in the reading into English, which Light does with ease.


While the teacher's role is fairly minor, it plays a large role in foreshadowing events of the series, as the passages he reads always seem to be ones that unintentionally reflect the series.


  • Yagami, are you still with us?” (Episode 1)
  • He found himself overwhelmed with happiness and satisfaction, knowing that at long last his dream had finally come true.” (Episode 2)
