it’s the most talked-about scene in one of the most talked about anime ever made. But what makes it work so well?

Heh, this just confirms it.
Wish I were more like L, but I"m probably more like Light.

Harry Potter wizard chess is just chess where you dont have to physically touch the pieces, but other than that its just chess. Chess in Harry Potter is no more complicated than chess in our world.

i think the smartest thing light did in the scene was get caught reading a hentai on purpose. no teenager would ever willingly get caught doing that. and that's exactly what makes it so brilliant. doing it is such a stupid thing to do, that there's no way it could actually be happening, he must be unaware he is being watched. so it fools them into thinking he doesnt know. even in his insane head, its early enough he still recognizes that people would completely believe he keeps porn, something a god would be above. by getting caught, his alibi is now airtight. he doesnt do some bullshit like pretend to volunteer for charity. he gives himself the most believable aliby any teenager can have. "i was looking at pornography".

Maybe I'm looking too much into this but here's a thought; I find the use of potato chips specifically instead of any other snack as symbolic to Light's character in a way. When you look at a bag of potato chips from the outside it gives off the impression that it's generously or reasonably filled…only to open it and be disappointed to discover that there's little content inside and most of it is just air. Light as Kira is empty inside, devoid of empathy and any normal human emotion. But on the outside he is the perfect student/son/boyfriend etc. I just find that similarity very interesting although it seems like a very trivial detail.
