Do you guys know where 'Kira' came from?


Recommended Posts

A common misunderstanding of the name Kira is that it means "killer" in Japanese. This is not true. Kira does not mean "killer" in Japanese, but when a person is speaking Japanese tries to pronounce the word "killer" it comes out sounding like "Kira" because L's in Japanese are pronounced as r's.

Still, it's an incredibly common name.

It's actually Japanese people calling him "Killer", but because of their accent, it came out "Kira".

Funny huh?

Light explained this in like episode 3 or 2....
