One concern I have is that Amazon.com may not be a reliable source; it wasn't accepted as such during one of my GANs. However, alternatives can be difficult to find, so I'll leave it be. The grammar and wording was also questionable in some places, but I copyedited it.

That said, I do have another concern: The information on Mello in other media is extremely brief. What does he do in the games? In the special, how is Mello's role different from the original, if at all; how is the story retold? Tezero (talk) 16:45, 2 May 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for both the review and the copyedit. Hm, about the other media section, I really tried to find more about his role on the game, but I never played it. Per Death Note Wikia and this video the player characters are Light and L, and Mello's role is not clear. It's seems like he only appears reprising his role in the manga. The ANN review was useful to expand his role in the especial, though. Gabriel Yuji (talk) 17:41, 2 May 2014 (UTC)
You speak Japanese, right? I seem to remember that. You could try looking up YouTube videos of the games and adding information about Mello's role, citing it to game quotes using Template:Cite video game. Tezero (talk) 17:45, 2 May 2014 (UTC)
No, I can only read katana, hiragana and some kanji. But I can hardly understand Japanese. The above video explains the game, but I can't explain it; Mello is only a card, and the wikia says it's a board game and Mello can be a Kira, or Kira's accomplice. It's something like a card duel between Light and L where other characters are cards. Playing as Light, you must to find out who is L to kill him, and as L you must to find out who is Kira. Sorry, if I can't explain it better. Gabriel Yuji (talk) 19:33, 2 May 2014 (UTC)
With the Google search engine ([1], [2]), I could only find this one that mentions Mello in this game: [3]. Not useful, I guess. Gabriel Yuji (talk) 20:38, 2 May 2014 (UTC)
Meh, it's fine. You may need more if you want to take this to FAC, but for now I won't ask any more. Tezero (talk) 20:47, 2 May 2014 (UTC)
