Death Note was one of the manga series I used to enjoy reading a long time back. So, when the 2006-07 anime adaptation of this series landed on my Netflix recommendation about a week ago, I decided not only to watch it but also amigurumi-fy one of its main characters, L Lawliet.
Death Note follows the story of Light Yagami, a teen genius who is given the power to end people’s lives just by writing their names in a black notebook called ‘Death Note’. When Light realizes the enormous power contained within the pages of this notebook, he turns into ‘Kira’, a god-like vigilante who decides to create a crime-free society by killing criminals [and later even those who come close to figuring out his identity!].
L Lawliet, known simply as “L”, is a renowned detective who takes on the challenge of catching the mass murderer known as Kira. And it is this eccentric, slovenly and barefooted detective that I decided to turn into an amigurumi.
L always sits like this. 👇🏼
And here he explains why.
Sometimes he waxes philosophical— 😏
—while on most days, he is just focused on eating deserts. 🍰
And he is never ever wrong! 🙀
Death Note is a manga series written by Tsugumi Ohba and illustrated by Takeshi Obata. If anime is more your cup of tea, a 37-episode anime adaptation of the series is available on Netflix. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got to catch the remaining Episodes 20-37 now. 🤓
