Connection Between Texts

The aim of this assignment is to convey to the different concepts of Justice. They have existed for many years and have been shaping all sorts of ideals followed by many societies, since the beginning of human culture. The concepts tend to define what is morally, divinely and politically right or wrong. Therefore I have chosen four different texts to illustrate my opinion and draw a few conclusions. The texts I used were Death Note, a Japanese manga series created by Tsugumi Ohba, Kill Bill Vol. II and I, written and directed by Tarantino, V of Vendetta, filmed and directed by James McTeigue and written by Wachowsky Brothers, and Pulp Fiction, also written and directed by Tarantino. I feel that those texts have enough manifestations of concepts of justice and hold plenty information for the reader to reflect, not only what it means, but if Justice itself can be judged simply by stating it as right or wrong.

The first example of Justice comes from the text Death Note. By analysing Death Note, by Tsugumi Ohba, we can see how the concept of justice is used to describe the feelings of two different characters that directly confront each other. Both characters have a very strong of what we call “sense of justice”, equally acknowledging the idea of Justice, but looking at it from different perspectives. The series Death Note, mainly concentrates on the cat-and-mouse game between the two main characters, Kira and L.

Kira is a teenager, whose since a very young age has been bombarded by the media with news of horrifying cases involving murderer, rape, crimes and many other types of violence. Being of a higher than average IQ, Kira is badly affected and therefore felt responsible to achieve justice when the opportunity arose- a book capable of killing any person just by writing their name on it. By accident Kira finds the book and tests it out to see if it really works. Once he has realized that the power he possesses is real, he starts using the notebook dedicating his whole life into creating a criminal-free utopia. For him, the only way to eliminate world’s injustice is by killing the people responsible for it. His attitude is directly related to his beliefs, what he believes to be right and wrong, and his feelings reflect on the situation in which he finds himself.

On the other side, there is L, the world’s greatest detective who is determined to catch the world’s biggest mass murderer. He, in contradiction with Kira, believes that he is doing Justice by catching the most dangerous serial killer the world has ever seen. Opposing L, Kira strongly believes that he is the one doing justice by eliminating what he considers people of bad nature, in order to make the world a “better place”. The contrast between these two characters shows how an ideal is fundamentally a reflex of one’s character based upon its morals.

At the same time, by looking at this example, we can see that because an idea is something intangible there...
