I was watching the Director's Cut of Death Note, and I see that I lot of people think that Light became a shinigami in the end of the series. I agree with them.

There is no heaven or hell, so maybe people who used the Death Note go to the shinigami realm instead.

I understand that it said that people go to MU, or nothingness, when they die, but maybe the SHINIGAMI REALM is MU. Think about it - it's just a barren wasteland with nothing to do and nowhere to go.

Ryuk was possibly talking to Light at the end of the director's cut. It's only implied, though.

If you look closely at the nameless shinigami when he's walking away at the end, you see that he is wearing the same suit and tie that Light was wearing that he died.

Sure, Death Note; How to Read didn't mention Light. But maybe, just maybe, Light is the new shinigami king? I heard that in the manga, Light went to discuss something with the shinigami king. Maybe somehow he persuaded the shinigami king into letting him take his place? Who knows.

A lot of people say that Ryuk was just rambling on like old people do (since he's old now), then he looked up and realized that the shinigami wasn't there anymore. Maye he wasn't talking to the shinigami at all. This is possible.

But people also think that Ryuk looked up at the sky as if he saw Light up there. Uh, hello, Light couldn't go to heaven! So he's not up there! xD

These are just my thoughts. I could never find a definite answer online. Does anyone disagree with me?

(I hope I did this correctly... this is my first debate!)

If all you say is true then i would have to ask why he didn't continue his plans to be god of the new world?
Light would have never given that up, even after death, clearly if he had become a creature like Ryuk he would have gotten revenge from Near and the police and continued his spree of killing criminals?

If all you say is true Death Note never ended and the series would still being going on, however thats not the case.

Well, I wasn't able to continue this debate due to classified reasons.

It doesn't matter though.

And I'm not a 'he', by the way.

From experience I must say that there are too many rounds, change it to 3.
