Light is a third year high school student who attends Daikoku Gakuen and attends supplemental classes at Gamou Prep Academy. His life changes completely when he happens to find the Death Note, a shinigami's notebook that has the power to kill the human's name written in its pages.
Having been fed up with the crime and corruption in the world, Light uses Death Note in order to become the God of the New World, killing criminals without laying a finger on them.
Pretty impressive Light! I've still yet to watch this anime, but I do remember I have the live action movie DVD somewhere. Great cosplaying!
