 Death Note's Symbolism & Why The Later Episodes Are Heretical

Death Note is more than just an Anime about Justice, being smarter than everyone and eating sweet treats; Death Note's symbolism draws a lot of inspiration directly from Japanese Traditional religions and Christianity. I argue that these symbols should act as a lense of which we as viewers of the Anime can interpret the show through. By Interpreting these symbols in death notes as markers of meaning, we can adopt a lens of interpretation which we should be watching the Anime through and thus the overall meaning of the show's story should change.
