Due to its similarity to L it is not known very much if the Another Note work is about Beyond Birthday or the L. Some believe that it is the L because it does not have red eyes because the fans began to connect with the eyes of Shinigami. More in the manga is it impossible for a human to see another human with Shinigami eyes or not making them look normal.

Others also find it improbable that there are two protagonists opposing another protagonist since this role is for the antagonist.
