Vigilance is an anime episode of Death Note that was released on 06/05/2007

After Giovanni's report, Near decides that they must get close to Mikami, but carefully so that the Shinigami trailing Mikami will not warn him of their actions. Wanting to know whether Light is communicating with Takada through written notes, Aizawa marks several notepads before Light meets with Takada, to see whether or not they are used. Takada tells Light of her meeting with Misa. Annoyed at the trouble that both women cause him, Light writes down a note telling Takada that Misa was doing the killings before Mikami and assuring her that she is the only one for him. Takada believes Light, but threatens him against lying as she can tell Kira about his actions. Light writes a script for Takada that makes it sound to those in the listening area that she has agreed to help them capture Kira. After Takada's and Light's meeting, Aizawa discovers that two notepads had been used, indicating that Light and Takada are communicating in secret. He goes to the SPK and presents his findings, only to be told they are already known. Near then invites Aizawa to witness the end of the so-called God. Hal and Lester pick up Misa and Mogi as the Music Festival begins. Light contacts Near, telling him that they have lost track of Mogi and Misa, and Near lets him know that they are with him. To himself, Near comments that Light should know the meaning of this move. Meanwhile, Giovanni searches Mikami's locker while he is busy working out in a local gym, having determined that Mikami follows a strict daily routine. Giovanni touches the notebook and notices that there is no Shinigami in sight. Once he reports back to headquarters, Near asks Mogi how long one can be manipulated by the notebook: 23 days, as proven by the Yotsuba group. Near decides that he will make his move in 24 days if Giovanni is still alive. On January 3rd, Light meets with Takada after the Music Festival. He passes her a note telling her to have Mikami contact her once he has confirmed everything, and then for her to contact Light with the message “I want to see you as soon as possible”. On January 6th, Giovanni is sent back to the locker to take photographs of the names written in the notebook, to determine whether there is a specific pattern to the deaths. Near determines the handwriting in the notebook is Mikami's by comparing it to his prosecution reports. With everything he needs, Near closes the episode saying, “if that's the case, it can be done.”
