To give him one final chance at redemption, Light took out a paper from a note of death that was in his watch.
He then attempts to write the name of Near on the paper.
To stop this, the Matsuda shot Light. But, Light was not giving up. This time, Light tries to write Near’s name onto the page with his blood.
This got Matsuda extremely angry and he fired Light numerous times. In the same moment, Light was not giving up.
Mikami chooses a pen and cuts Light’s wrist by using it. However, this didn’t stop Light from getting off.
Then Light was dying slowly and exhausted from all the shootings. Ryuk who was watching the entire scene from a distant tower wrote Light’s name on the death note and, within the span of 40 Seconds, Light died of heart attacks. This is the end of the storyline.
