Because a lot of people LOVED L and was rooting for him.
Not to sound like a total as$ for those L lovers, but he saw it coming...so i agree with you that is WAS predictable.
It was also predictable that Light was obviously going to die because he just had to! All bad guys die in the end, right?
But but but HEY!!!
Have a look at this page from Death Note: http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Death_Note_-_How_to_Swim1.jpg
YOU WILL LOVE IT. If you like spoofs :P
His death became a TOTAL twist, and i loved it, even though he died.
I knew he died BEFORE the whole crowd knew, because I read the manga first. So when everyone was like "NO L IS DEAD!" when they watched the anime, it really didn't have a huge impact on me the 2nd time round.
Plus, because of the manga, i knew that N came about, so why not just continue watching the anime?
And plus, Death Note IS about Light trying to avoid getting caught by playing around with the world...that what makes it so thrilling and psychologically awesome about this anime/manga!!!
read/seen/played Death Note :D
