So is that unlikeable little freak the protagonist?
Good bit though.
Protagonist doesn't mean Hero. Light is certainly the protagonist, but L is the Hero.
If he kicks this kid's ass all over Tokyo I might watch this show again for that specific scene.
One rule of writing is that you can't write characters smarter than yourself. So yeah pretty much the whole series is them telling us this kid is a brilliant genius chick magnet while he performs not brilliant things, which kind of unhinges the whole crux of a crime show.
I still think the whole premise would have been better off as a Twilight Zone episode. There's maybe 60 minute of actual story in the whole series, the rest is typical anime time filler.
oops, BHWW already summed it up better.

Five stars for this scene and the scene where he kills this guy's girlfriend (Naomi, it's in the related videos) making me drop the series shortly after. The characters, barring the police and L, are all infuriating in one way or another.

He made a plan.

This show sucked long before it was on adult swim.
I love the anime version of a crowded subway: NO ONE MOVES. I kind of know how TinManic feels watching people 5-star cat video after cat video. This is just relentlessly boring and lacking in any redeeming quality.

To be fair, animating that many moving elements is extremely expensive. That's the reason why you ordinarily only see two moving things onscreen in anime.

Getting all anime-dork elitist up in here; it works better as a manga than it does an anime.

I honestly don't get the appeal of the show. I'm sure it works better on the page but the show seems to consist of the main characters doing "He never has a second cup of coffee at home!" type thinking bits where they contemplate how clever they are and how their latest scheme to outfox their opponent is oh so clever but they must be careful.
On another tangent: whenever I go to a bookstore and see sadsacks "browsing" manga while planting their butts on the floor in the middle of the aisles between shelves, never moving for anybody and being as rude as can be, they're almost always reading Death Note or Naruto.
