What were they thinking?
are you not a little girl? what on earth are you doing on this board
That actually looks uncanny valley horrifyingly jarring and thus great.
I get the felling that the people behind the TV show really hated Light
Watched the 1st episode of this. It was okay, I guess. Does it get any better?
I liked that series.
How far does episode 1 go again?
I don't remember it being particularly worse than the rest. If you like this Light and are interested in what cool plot changes they make I'd watch it.
It was about 1 hour and 10 minutes and covered up to the point where Light's father meets L and where it shows the Jap-American FBI Colin Farrell agent tailing Light.
I guess it does get better, it did for me at least
its an acquired taste, i remember when i watched kamen rider kuuga as my first tokusatsu series and thought to myself how hilariously stupid it looked
years later ive watched almost every KR series there is
>me new in Japan
>depressed because typhoon, jetlag, hunger and no contacts yet
>eat in restaurant alone and depressed
>flood in Ibaraki because of typhoon, live on TV
>restaurant owner switches to dorama shit to lighten up the mood
>seriously whished he would switch back to natural disaster because of the acting
It's that bad
I think cheese in tokusatsu and Kaiju stuff is perfectly fine. It's just embarrassing when you're watching something thats supposed to have a bit more dramatic weight. Do nips just prefer putting they're trendy idols in front of cameras instead of people who can actually emote? The same could be said for the west, but even the most shit-tier actor working on whatever ho-hum sitcom could run rings around these people. The last thing i really tried was Blue Blazes but even that was too much. I really wanted to get into that show.
Their culture embraces ridiculous sentimentality and flowery, emotional language. This is in stark contrast to the usual terse dialogue in western films and shows where good actors learn to make simple scripts powerful and impactful through tone and visible emotion.
