We see in Death Note that the pages of the Death Note are not self-healing, and pages torn out do not seem to be restored. At least some owners possess a Death Note for multiple years, and pages remain filled out with names written in the past (at least by the current owner). Still, the notebook is always depicted as a slim notebook.

light's little black book

so many dead people

If the owner manages to fill out all the pages, or tears out enough pages to need more, does the book somehow add pages, or is the owner no longer to write more names?

No the pages will never run out, as seen on the imageimage:

edit: While i know some don't trust wikia sources, i don't have my deathnote manga's on me right now. i can confirm this however when i get home. for now, here is a link to the wikia page where i got this info. additionally here is a reddit thread talking about this issue aswell

  • Without a source, this is meaningless. One can easily make a picture that says "Pages do run out" or worse

  • Personally I think the link is good enough. This isn't a philosophy assignment where people complain about wiki, it's just that you posted a mostly black picture with some text on it that might have been from some fanfic facebook page
