Five of these chapters are self-contained one-shot outings. And the last one is a chapter on Yankoma.
The chapters of the outing include The C-Kira Story, The A-Kira story, Four-panel Scribbles on Death Note, L-One Day, L-The Wammy’s House, and The Taro Kagami Story. All these stories deal with different characters that got influenced by the actions of the original Kira.
