So the time has come for Death Note to become a live action movie. This could be good. Giving the track record with Netflix this can actually be the closest we get to the source material. The original Death Note anime is a cult classic that should be handled with care. Fans of the series would lay waste to it if they divert to far from the anime. For example “L” is a black guy. Which is no problem for me but many fans may cry wolf. Then “Light” is a bit on the American side. I understand this particular version is catered for more of the western media so we can expect a bit of dumbing down so to speak. Hopefully we have a seamless transition and a movie that isn’t rushed. Seeing how the original Death Note anime had 37 episodes. Cramming all that awesomeness into one movie will be a task.
