Top 15 quotes of Light Yagami from anime Death Note

Light Yagami is observant, charming, and astute. Light appears to be your standard overachieving, hyper-responsible kid at first glance – and he is, for the most part. Underneath this charming appearance, however, is a more complex personality, one whose conflicted high principles and cynical hate force him to take drastic actions. Throughout the series, Light shows signs of having two personas, and he even reconsiders his decision to kill L as Light. But he keeps coming back to Kira, telling himself there are no good reasons not to.
