Ep 32 – “Selection” / “Sentaku” (選択)
Tragic events in Teru Mikami’s childhood convince him that God wants him to stand up to evil. As a result, when criminals everywhere begin to die, Mikami believes that this is God’s righteous judgment and becomes a frequent guest on “Kira’s Kingdom”. After Light gives him a Death Note, Mikami becomes ecstatic and passes judgment on criminals in Light’s stead. He chooses a new spokesperson for Kira: Kiyomi Takada, who happens to be one of Light’s girlfriends in college. Light realizes that he can use this connection to his advantage and sets up a meeting with Takada, presumably for the benefit of the investigation. While the two meet, Takada receives a call from Mikami and Light reveals himself to Mikami as Kira. They create a ploy to force the investigation team to remove all bugs from the room, after which Light tells Takada that he wants her to be his goddess in the new world. Light then tells the investigation team that he will be pretending to be Takada’s boyfriend to catch Kira. Elsewhere, Mello watches Misa, suspecting her to be the second Kira.
