Ryuk’s original concept art. Takeshi Obata wanted to design Ryuk as an “attractive rock star”, but scrapped the idea at the thought that Ryuk shouldn’t be more attractive than the main character, Light. In How to Read 13, Obata states that Ryuk’s current grotesque face could be a mask to hide his “real” face, and therefore Ryuk may still technically look like this in canon.
the faces made in death note are my favorite thing
YO SHOUT OUT TO MY BOY LIGHT YAGAMI
I BELIEVED IN UR CAUSE
I WANTED YOU TO WIN
MISS YOU FOREVER
RIP U 1/28/2013
how long have you been waiting for this
It’s annoying to wait, your life is already over… You die here. It was good while it lasted. We killed some boredom, didn’t we?
Just a reminder that Yagami Light dies on 01/28/2013 in the anime.
