Both Brad and Mamoru did an excellent job voicing Light. They went all out and beyond. Not every voice actor can do that you know. It takes a certain level of talent and experience.

Honestly, I feel as if Brad Swaile did a better job than Mamoru Miyano in this role.

Light is such a tragic character: his original intention is only to use the Death Note to make criminals pay for all the crimes they committed against innocent people, but gradually, with power he goes crazy, and views himself as a literal God, and it's at that point he loses his humanity and becomes the very villain he wanted to eradicate altogether.

Oh, and Brad Swaile is just as good as Mamoru Miyano is in the role, if not even better.

@WrightWay I thought of Light as a tragic "hero" but not like this; your view on him was elaborately put.

Watch death note to completion until the second to last episode ending and stop there. Perfect ending
