[Death Note] L’s Birthday

October 31st

L is the ultimate anti-hero in the anime, manga, and novel series Death Note. He is an entirely original character to the franchise starting with the first chapter of the manga on December 1, 2003.

The name L was given to him by the Kira Task Force because it is identical in pronunciation with the letter that he has on his clothing which he gave them when asked about what they should call him.

The only people allowed to call him by his real name are Misa Amane, Ryuk, Watari, and Wammy’s House orphans who had been part of the Kira Investigation Companions. He is named after a famous musician of the past due to musical notes being associated with the letter L in Western culture.
