Synopsis

It has been three years since the "Kira Killings" came to a halt, but the world has not forgotten that godlike figure. While rumors circulate that Kira was killed, others claim that Kira is merely taking a break and that their rebirth is inevitable. Although this is nothing but gossip, soon enough, Japan falls under the Death Note's spell once again.

When a spike in elderly deaths occurs, many believe that Kira is making a comeback. This time, however, those dying are publicly wishing for Kira to kill them, inspiring many other suicidal individuals to call upon Kira's powers. With both publicity and the number of deaths ramping up, the Japanese police and the anonymous detective L are drawn in to tackle the return of the Death Note.

[Written by MAL Rewrite]

First of all, I want any readers to keep this in mind while reading my (short) review of this single "oneshot" (pun) chapter.

1) I rated a 10 for story because I thought the story of Death Note as a whole was magnificent, and truly original.
2) I rated character mediocre, because there was no N/A option.

Now, onwards!

This is going to be extremely brief since the chapter is, well, brief. Some fans would go to say that this chapter is completely unnecessary as any addition to the Death Note story. I, however, think it poses a purpose separate from the story itself, and is meant to emphasize ...

Mixed Feelings
Ah, well, I seriously just finished reading this, so this is what I have to say about it:

I saw this and I had never known that it was created, so of course I was going to jump straight into it. Now, let me just tell you now, ever since the second arc of the actual Death Note, I've hated Near with a burning passion. And I mean HATE. I've rooted for Mello since the beginning. So when I saw that this was based around Near, I got a little nervous. But I went ahead and read it. So, this is my opinion on it:

Story: 7
I think it was good but they should have made it a little longer.

The art was great because it was very detailed. (Card towers, Shinigami world and the Japanese streets)

Characters: 9
Some Originals, so it was great to see what happened to them after the original.

Enjoyment: 9
