Part II is the second part of the Death Note anime and manga series. It revolves around a three-way feud between Near, Mello, and Kira after L's death.

During interviews, Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata refer to this part as the "Near and Mello arc". Many readers or viewers also use this name.

SummaryEdit

Chapters 60-74 (America arc) Edit

After L's death, Roger tells Near and Mello of L's death, with Mello getting angry and storming off, planning on beating Kira without Near's help.[2]

Five years later, the SPK is established, working under Near, Kira is killing criminals through the internet, more powerful than ever, and Mello teamed up with the mafia. Light is also currently the second L, meaning the Task Force must follow his orders.[3] Mello kidnaps Sayu Yagami for the notebook,[4] and manages to retrieve it. Light manages to learn Mello is the kidnapper through his conversations with Near, who was also worrying Light.[5]

At first, Light makes the president send troops to attack Mello's base, only for it to fail thanks to Sidoh, who is working under Mello and the mafia.[6] After this attempt, he sends the Task Force to attack Mello's base instead, with Ryuk's help and Soichiro's Shinigami Eyes. Light managed to kill all the mafia members, convinced Sidoh to not work for the mafia, and learned Mello's real name. However, Soichiro dies and Mello escapes, completely alone.[7]

Chapters 75-108 (SPK arc) Edit

After this, Near manages to get closer to deducing Kira's identity thanks to Mello's actions. Mello then busts in, asking for his photograph, and exchanging some information for Near during the Kira case.

Mello sends Mogi, a member of the Task Force, to America, telling Near to order Mogi to spill some information to Near, with Mello listening in on the conversation. Much to Mello's dismay, however, Mogi doesn't speak. Shortly after, Light sends Demegawa and hundreds of other Kira followers to attack the SPK, with that resulting in Near escaping unscathed.

Near manages to take advantage of Mogi's arrival by lying to the Task Force, saying that Mogi has died of a heart attack, making Aizawa tell some information to Near. This makes Near believe that Light Yagami is, in fact, Kira. After this, Light transfers ownership of the Death Note from Misa over to Mikami, who kills Demegawa and selects Kiyomi Takada as the new spokesperson. Luckily, Takada had a past relationship with Light, so Light has private meetings with Takada under the guise that it's to investigate her. In reality, he is communicating with Mikami through Takada.

Near deduces Mikami's identity as X-Kira and begins spying on him. Light is making Mikami use a fake notebook, while Takada does the real killings with the multiple pages of the book she has. This throws Near off, who switches this fake notebook with another fake one for the final plan, where he and Light agreed to meet at the Yellow Box warehouse, so Mikami can write down the names of everyone except Kira's.

Light is confident that he will succeed, as he thinks that what Mikami brought was real while Near switched the fake one, but when Mello had kidnapped Takada earlier on, this had made Mikami write down Takada's name in the real note, making Near aware of the real one, prompting him to switch the real one with a complete fake. Near honors Mello's sacrifice, as Light is exposed as Kira. Shortly after, Matsuda shoots Light, forcing him to run outside the warehouse, and Ryuk writes his name in his Death Note.
