10 years have passed since two geniuses fought the battle of intelligence. Light Yagami aka Kira used the Death Note on fugitives to punish them until "L" stopped him at the cost of his own life. Havoc is created when Death puts his Death Note in the mortal world again. The Death Note Task Force, originally set up by police officer Soichiro Yagami, is reinstated. Their office is in the Tokyo Metropolitan Police Department. With Yagami dead, the Task Force is made up of 5 investigators including Mikami who is well versed on the Death Note incident, and Matsuda who is the only one from the original Task Force. Shibuya, Wall Street and Russia are on high alert with Death Note killings taking place. That's when a world renowned private investigator, Ryuzaki joins the Task Force. He is regarded as a successor to L and it is him who figures out that there are six Death Notes this time. As the investigation continues, a computer virus called "Kira virus" spreads across the world. The virus comes with a message, "Attention Death Note owners; turn your notebook in to me immediately." If all six Death Notes were possessed by one individual, the person would have the ability to rule the world. A fight ensues between those who wish for the second coming of Kira and those who oppose the evil plan.
