This is a short kinetic typography film that I created for an art college assignment during my third semester (second year). It is based on Light Yagami's dramatic speech in the final episode of the highly-acclaimed psychological thriller "Death Note."

For this kinetic typography film, I wanted to reflect and exaggerate the personalities of both speaking characters (i.e. Light Yagami and Nate "Near" River) through the effective use of typography, font and colour.

I hope you enjoy watching this short kinetic typography film as much as I enjoyed creating it! Plus, if you are a fan of Death Note yourself and you enjoyed watching the original series, I hope you like my own interpretation of Light Yagami's dramatic speech as much as the original version! Thank you!

-EDIT: Friday 17th December 10- Won Daily 5th Place again? Wow...Now I definitely know that my Flash animation skills are improving! Plus, this is my first ever Flash animation that received an average score of 4 out of 5, which is considerably a very high score! Thank you everyone for your support and feedback!

Kira for President?

For some reason, Light sounded as if he was running for president. His speech so motivating.... Nice flash btw.

If you don't fully understand this kinetic typography film, you might want to watch the actual series first.

I am a fan of the Death Note series and from this, I have to say, I thought that Light's voice was ACTUALLY from the series itself. N's voice also did a fantastic job, however, it was shorter than Light's. Kudos!

UnknownHedgehog responds:

Their voices ARE from the series.


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars


i always thought kira was crazy


Rated 5 / 5 stars


Light sounds absolutely bat-shit insane, especially during this part, when he's been caught and he knows he's on his last legs.

And Near's simple quashing of Light's self-justification was so sweet. I love how you represented that by squishing the word GOD between Near's words.

Nice animation. As a Death Note fan, you have my thanks for this cool flash video.

I'm glad that you like how I conveyed the atmosphere and dialogue of the original scene through the use of typography. Thank you for your thorough praise.


Rated 5 / 5 stars


I never really got a feel for how terrible the voice acting in the English Dub for this was until now.

10 ironic stars for you!

UnknownHedgehog responds:

10 ironic stars?? If so, then why not 5 out of 10?
