The Importance of the Kira Task Force in Death Note

Some say that Death Note is a battle between L and Light. A game of cat and mouse between the world’s greatest detective and Kira. That interpretation of Death Note can be correct, but it undermines the importance of the Kira Task Force. L and Light’s fight was often decided around the loyalty, trust, and compliance of characters like Soichiro Yagami, Matsuda, and Aizawa.
