The Manga Murder (Dutch: Mangamoord) is a solved, Belgian murder case possibly involving a serial killer, referred to as the Manga Killer. The name of the case was coined by the Belgian media and has to do with the notes that were found near the victim. The notes carried a sentence in capital letters and in different colours, originating from the manga series, Death Note: "Watashi wa Kira dess", a mis-transliteration of "I am Kira" (私はキラです, Watashi wa Kira desu?). Light Yagami, also known as Kira, is the protagonist of the series. In Death Note, Kira goes on a killing spree assisted by his supernatural notebook, trying to cleanse the world of criminals.
The case received much attention from the Japanese media.
