As i have watched the series so far, and reading certain post, yes i do think Light will become a shinigami however you spell it. It states if i can remember that (don't know if right) Once a human uses the deathnote, he or she will become a shinigami once they die. Supposeably thats what i think. Though the chances of him becoming one is very suitable, though i think he will soon lose his human interest and become like the rest. Bored and eat apples lol. Though the anime plot is so very well done. Makes me sometimes feel dumb watching it. Also this series is basically about who will win? Light or L.
This anime has become my favorite. I'm looking forward to next episode.
P.S. Eh i really don't care for the voice acting.
