Death Note Episode 26


Renewal (再生, Saisei) is the first episode of the Death Note anime series Second Season, twenty-sixth episode Overall. This episode begins with a recap of the all twenty-five episodes of the first Season.




Death Note Episode 26



Following the deaths of L and Watari, a man receives all the data which they gathered about the Kira case. Meanwhile, the Investigation Team learns that Watari was an inventor who used his wealth to create orphanages all over the world.


The first half of the episode is a recap from L about the events. The second half shows the Kira Task Force discussing what to do now that L is dead. They see in the newspaper that Watari was actually a rich inventor named Quillsh Wammy who founded orphanages. They suggest having Light as the new L. Light decides to rent an apartment, and asks Misa to move in with him. Later, on a rooftop overlooking the city, Light reassures Ryuk that his entertainment is not over as he can now begin to create his new world.


  • Meanwhile, L's computer monitor has automatically sent a timed message to a place called Wammy's House, with the simple statement "L is dead."This episode provides examples of: Antagonist in Mourning: Light seems very despondent now that L is dead. He even goes so far as to hallucinate L sitting next to him, speaking to him.

  • Back for the Dead: The Yotsuba board members, trying to atone for the past, are brutally murdered by Light. The con-man and the thief who worked closely with L and the team are just as viciously killed.

  • Dull Eyes of Unhappiness: Light

  • Evil Overlooker: Light stands on the roof of taskforce headquarters with Ryuk, overlooking his "New World."

  • Hired to Hunt Yourself: Light is made the new L.

  • Hollywood Hacking: Light deletes most of L's findings on the Kira case.

  • Morality Chain: Now that he's regained his memories and L is dead there is NOTHING holding Light back now and so he throws himself into his "work" like never before.

  • Posthumous Character: L

  • Recap Episode: The first half.

  • Thanatos Gambit: L had a deadman's switch set up to inform Wammy's House in the event of his death. Also L had previously suggested that in the event of his death Light be made the new L.

  • Time Skip: Five years.

  • Victory Is Boring: Light just doesn't know what to do with himself now that L is dead. There's no more challenging mind games to intrigue him and it's back to taking out the trash.



This episode should not have happened. I am laying my cards out pretty early, but I would like to be as unambiguous as possible when I say: this episode was an astonishing narrative mistake. I believe that this episode is largely responsible for why the final act of Death Note is so divisive among fans of the anime.


The episode would have worked better as a flashback. We should have seen a younger version of L training Near and Mello, one of whom would take his place. We also should have seen some explanation for why Quillish Wammy raised gifted children, but that is not necessary. This would have answered some important question; mainly, who were these two dweebs, and what was their relationship with L? Everything about them in the anime had to be inferred.


Like any anime, newcomers to the series want the most authentic and true experience of the story and a big part of that is weeding out any filler episodes. Longrunning anime series are often plagued with filler to buff their runtime and provide content while creators work on new manga stories to be adapted.


During the episode, Light initially leaves the Death Note before returning to pick it up due to curiosity. This does not happen in the manga, instead, he picks it up straight away. Also, there is no montage of Light learning how to kill criminals in the manga.


When finally being beaten and collapsing to his death L stares at Light without saying a word before dying. In the manga, this scene sees L let out one last whisper before his death acknowledging that Light had been Kira.


Light in the anime is shot and killed, however, in the manga, he begs Ryuk to help him kill Near and Matsuda but is ultimately betrayed as the Shinigami writes his name inside the notebook. Ryuk tells Light that he decided to take things into his own hands so that Light would not rot in prison.


So I guess there are no better ways to introduce the second arc other than a recap. I believe this will keep the viewers restless on the progression of the story. Although it is the second arc already, I still think that it only begins on the next episode since nothing much has progressed in this episode. So this episode with scene when L met his death, along with Watari and Rem. And here comes the recap.


When it comes to anime, "Death Note" is pretty mean and lean. Clocking in at just 37 episodes across two major story arcs, it's not a show that wastes a lot of time. That's just one of the many reasons it's considered to be one of the greatest anime shows of all time. But even the best anime shows often have some skippable episodes, and "Death Note" is no different.


If you are unfamiliar with the concept the show is based on, it can't hurt to watch the first episode of "Death Note." The premiere diverges from the first manga chapter in how it sets everything up and how many people Light kills upfront, but it performs the same function in that it sets up the basics. You learn about the main character and discover his motivations, which appear noble to begin with.


At the end of the sixth episode, it's pretty easy to figure out what Light's next move is going to be. He knows he needs to kill Raye Penber's fiancée, Naomi Misora, so the information she has on Kira doesn't get to the police. Aside from the iconic final shot of Misora walking towards the symbol of her impending death, there's nothing memorable about "Overcast," the seventh episode.


Misora is an ex-FBI agent who is on to Light, so she gives him a fake name. He spends the rest of the episode trying to figure out how to get her real name. It's admittedly fun to see Light in a sticky situation, but "Overcast" really drags this tension out to the point where Light's internal monologue becomes annoying. Eventually, he lies to her about working for L, and Misora inexplicably buys it, giving Light her real name and sealing her fate. The entire episode is interspersed with scenes of L and the detectives, which don't do a whole lot besides setting up the episodes that follow.


Redditor u/energeeon cited Episode 7 as the one that made them want to stop watching "Death Note," writing that they found it unbelievable that Naomi could be so easily outsmarted by Light. Most of the fans in the comments admitted that this was a moment where Light simply got lucky, and sometimes that has to happen for the story to move forward. Like the first episode, "Overcast" isn't 100% filler, but all you need to know is that Light kills Raye Penber's fiancée in questionable circumstances. Armed with that info, you can go ahead and skip right to Episode 8, in which L starts to close in on Light.


One of the most popular characters from "Death Note" is Misa Amane. The bubbly girl obsessed with Kira comes off as annoying at first, but she becomes one of the most tragic characters of the show by the end. That being said, spending a whole episode with just her and the Yotsuba Group is a waste of everyone's time. Fans agree (via Reddit) that "Performance" is one of the few episodes you can definitely skip without worrying about missing anything important.


Misa, who wound up being the second Kira, relinquished her Death Note and has no memory of these actions. Now, she has been set up to infiltrate the Yotsuba Group of powerful elites by L. After her meeting with the Yotsuba Group, she is confronted by her Shinigami Rem, who fills her in on what she's done. In essence, the episode consists of one character telling another character about things we're already aware of.


After Episode 25 puts an end to L's story and brings a sense of finality to the show, there is a quick reset before "Death Note" moves forward. Episode 26 of the series, "Renewal," is the biggest filler episode in the whole series. It spends half of its runtime with a recap of everything that has happened so far. This part is narrated by L for any fans who were missing him already. But seriously, if you've been paying attention up until this point, you can totally skip this episode. It's so rough that some viewers even found themselves wanting to drop the show after watching it (per Reddit).


Just a handful of episodes before its fiery ending, "Death Note" decides to take one last diversion. Despite it being so close to the end of the series, nothing meaningful happens in "Scorn," the 33rd episode of the anime.


The Simpsons executive producer Matt Selman revealed in a podcast interview with Four Finger Discount last Friday that South Korean animation studio DR Movie will animate the Death Note parody in the upcoming "Treehouse of Horror XXXIII" Halloween episode on Sunday.


In July, Selman revealed that this year's "Treehouse of Horror" episodes will parody Stephen King's horror novel IT and the anime adaptation of Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata's Death Note manga. The show's Twitter account revealed a poster visual for the segment in September, featuring Lisa Simpson drawn in anime style and the iconic Death Note shinigami Ryuk.


The Simpsons is no stranger to anime and Japanese pop culture parodies. In 2014, the annual Treehouse of Horrors special episodes imagined a world where multiple incarnations of the Simpsons family were created by an evil marketing entity, including versions of themselves that were obvious parodies of Attack on Titan, Naruto, Pokémon, Bleach, One Piece, and Spirited Away. The series has also parodied Godzilla and Pokémon Go.


Death Note is a Japanese anime television series based on the manga series of the same name written by Tsugumi Ohba and illustrated by Takeshi Obata. It was directed by Tetsurō Araki at Madhouse and originally aired in Japan on Nippon TV every Tuesday shortly past midnight, effectively from October 4, 2006, to June 27, 2007.[1][2] The plot of the series primarily revolves around high school student Light Yagami, who decides to rid the world of evil with the help of a supernatural notebook called a Death Note. This book causes the death of anyone whose name is written in it and is passed on to Light by the Shinigami Ryuk after he becomes bored within the Shinigami world. 041b061a72
