Ep 36 – “1.28” / “1.28”
Each having developed a strategy to bring the other down for good, Light and Near finally meet face to face in an abandoned warehouse. Light brings out Mikami to have him write the names of everyone but Light on his Death Note. Meanwhile, Near is confident that the pages of the notebook Mikami is using are fake, confessing that he has tampered with them. All they need do now is check whose name was not written to find out who the real Kira is. Light struggles to mask his glee as he thinks of how he already knew of Near’s actions and that that had been why he had Takada keep the real Death Note while switching Mikami’s with a false one. As the seconds before the Death Note’s power takes effect count down, Light declares his victory to Near.
