The final episode of Death Note

I just noticed that the cartoon version of Death Note has a somewhat different ending than the comics one. And yup I like this one more, especially the scene when Light ran along the path with the sunset in the background:
  • Light seemed to be running away to avoid being arrested. In fact, he knew that he couldn't escape. He was instead trying to run away from all the wrongdoings he committed. The days when he was still a good student came to his mind. However, everything was too late.
  • The industrial zone in the evening gave me a unspeakable feeling of loneliness and hopelessness. That background reflected the thoughts of Light at that moment very well.
So this ending actually adds a little bit of human touch to the evilness of Light. In the comics version, Light was a devil all the way till the end without any regret...

For some reason, I really like the feelings chimneys in an industrial zone give me. I guess I'm just weird :P
