Okay, unless you’ve been living in a sock in a hamper for the last few years, you’ve heard of Deathnote, either via the fantastic manga comic, or 2006’s Desu Noto the very popuar anime series based on the manga ( I think there’s already been a Japanese film released based on the Manga as well, but I’ve had a hard time finding it ).
DeathNote (Death Note) is about Light Yagami, a teenage student ( I think he’s 17 or 18 but I can’t remember ) who finds a notebook that claims to hold the power to kill anyone who’s name is written in it. Of course Light can’t resist becoming The God of the New World and taking justice into his own hands – it’s really brilliant stuff, very compelling.
Well, now I’m hearing that we’re set to get our own film about Deathnote on May 20th released to a nationwide audience, and I *have* to go see it. Or I will die. Yes, die, lol.
