By the end, Light is definitely the antagonist.

I always thought Light was the Antagonist though whole time, once L was introduced.

As for New Dominion Tank Police, I've not seen it, but apparently it's good stuff, too, just maybe a tad worse than the prequel.

Anyways, so apparently Tomino, Creator of Gundam, has a new Mecha project in the works. This project, along with the adaption of Gundam: The Origin, are both set to release in 2014 or 2015, just in time for the 35th Aniversary of Gundam. I'm hoping both wind up being full-fledged series, because there's a lot from Gundam: The Origin that I'd like to see, and as for Tomino's project, he tends to work better with longer series. He's an idea man, and he needs the time to be able to impliment those ideas naturally (or as close as he can get at any rate). I think that's why he hasn't had a good release since Turn A Gundam - they were all too short!

With Gundam: The Origin, Broken Blade's new adaption, the finale of Gundam UC, the continuation of Code Geass: Akito the Exiled, and now Tomino's project, the next two years look like they may be very good to Mecha fans.

Oh yes, and speaking of Akito the Exiled, here's a nice song from it:

L is the antagonist. Light is the protagonist. The protagonist can be the worst human being on earth, the roles have nothing to do with good and evil. It's simply the central character, the protagonist, and the main opposing character, the antagonist.

Light is more of a lead character though, the series is more about him than it is L though. The show has things shown from Light's perspective more than it does L's perspective. The show introduces Light as the protagonist and then L as the antagonist and maintains that. I haven't seen L thought of as the protagonist before, just Light, even if they hate Light's guts and absolutely love L's.

The protagonist generally does "right."

Also L gets pretty equal time as @CanisWolfred said. I think they're both presented initially as two characters for the audience to side with depending on their individual views, however, by the end Light is clearly the villain.

@Rocko52 The protagonist normally does right, but that doesn't make someone a protagonist, it's just someone that usually happens, but has nothing to with being a protagonist. The protagonist can be the villian or hero. Light is the villian in Death Note, but that doesn't change his protagonist status. Getting as much attention for a bit in a story doesn't just change who the protagonist is either.

Yeah. You know, I love the fact that not one One Piece opening I've seen is bad. Usually I don't watch any openings other than the first in a series before I start watching and get to the next, as openings can be spoilers, but I just love One Piece's/

I wasn't a fan of Openings 9 and 12, IIRC. But they still weren't bad, so you're right.

I don't like Crazy Rainbow Star, The Straw Hats version of We Are!, or Opening 12.
I used to not be a fan of One Day, but it's grown on me.

Haven't heard those. Only 1,2,3,4,10,14, and 15. Love them. I also like the dubs.

Not True at all. Walter White is the main character of Breaking Bad he's a pretty horrible human being.

WAT!
