Episode Notes
This episode covers chapter 1 of the manga.

Episode Quotes
Light: (translating a passage in school) Follow the voice of God and he shall calm the waves and protect us from storms.

Light: (thinking to himself) Jeez...thinking about this really makes you realize just how many people the world would actually be better off without.

Light: So you're telling me that there's really no trade-off for using the Death Note?
Ryuk: Since you insist on knowing, there is the fear and suffering that is faced only by those humans that use Death Notes. And finally, when you die it falls on me to write your name in my Death Note. Don't assume that someone who's used the Death Note will be allowed to go to Heaven or Hell.

Light: This world is rotting. Those who are rotting deserve to die.

Ryuk: I knew it. Humans are....so much fun.

Episode Goofs
Light sees the DEATH NOTE land to the ground face down. But when he picks it up, the book is face up.

Cultural References
A large television on the side of a building in this episode has the brand name "Fanasonic" on it. This bears a striking resemblance to the brand "Panasonic".

A student in Light's class can be seen playing a portable video game device that looks very much like a Nintendo DS.
