Ep 12 – “Love” / “Koigokoro” (恋心)

Light meets with L and the detectives. Meaning to test Light’s analytical skills, L has him listen to the recordings confiscated by the team to determine if there are any clues in the reader’s voice. In this way, L concludes that Light cannot be Kira. The team then broadcasts a recording made by L and Light to trick the second Kira, Misa Amane, into replying. Misa unwittingly reveals important details about the properties of the Death Note and shinigami when she responds and Light begins to panic. In her reply, Misa demands that the first Kira meet her in person. Shocked and wanting to pursue this lead, the investigation team formulates a plan, while Light decides what to do.
