6 death notes are falling from the sky. One of them falls to Russia when Russian physician Alexey Ivanov comes home. He grabs it and learns of some of its rules. Ivanov ends up using the Death Note on a terminally ill patient who whispered in his ear that he just wanted to die. So Ivanov writes his name down and soon realizes that the patient is dead, turning to see a Shinigami figure before him
