Okay, I found out something today about the DeathNote movie that I didn’t realize before. It looks like it may be the Japanese version! Although, I don’t recognize the actors ( and a lot of Japanese-style films come out of Korea these days ), I’m fairly sure it’s Japanese and when it comes out in select theaters ( May 20 and 21st ) it’ll have English dubbing, which honestly I’m not a fan of. I’d rather read subtitles and hear the original language ( I’m a big fan of Asian and African languages, it comes with being slightly obsessive, lol. ).
As I’ve previously stated in my gushing over Deathnote, it’s about a teenager who finds a notebook that has the power to kill anyone – as long as you’ve written their name in the book and, of course, being a fallable human being, Light takes on the role of God and begins judgement and punishment as he sees fit. If you haven’t seen the insanely popular anime series or read the amazing manga, you’re missing out, and I strongly suggest making DeathNote the movie your introduction into this genre.
