Since Light's father took the shinigami eyes, which reduce your lifespan by 1/2, and died the same day, does this mean he only had 2 days left to live?

  • Love the question, just think there is no definite answer to it.

1 Answer 1


How to Use: XLII (from Volume 08):

  1. The use of the DEATH NOTE in the human world sometimes affects other human’s lives or shortens their original life-span, even though their names are not actually written in the DEATH NOTE itself. In these cases, no matter the cause, the god of death sees only the original life-span and not the shortened life-span.

With this, I would say Soichiro had some time to live still, but the use of the death note made his death unnatural.
