Despite this need for caution, many anime characters still seem to choose the wrong option. Their bad decisions caused a lot of trouble and yet they never learned from their mistakes. Instead, they kept making bad decisions, either because no one ever tried to stop them or because they just didn’t pay attention when people did.

Light felt no remorse for his actions and, in fact, his small victories kept him going. Light’s first big mistake was killing the fake L, which appeared on TV.
