I would say it is ingenious, because a transgender would have two names. And no one but a Deathgod would be able to know which one is official for the purpose of the Death Note.

No, mexifag here, it was released in Mexico for some reason, but the movie its really shitty, here is a quick rundown:
In the future a NEW rule for the Death Note appears, only 7 death notes are allowed in the human world
shinigami king is bored and dying so he orders the other shinigami to give their death notes to humans and the one who's owner is the best will be the new shinigami king (this shit goes nowhere so its pointless to get into it)
Many Kira imitators are around but one claims that he can return kira to life but is just bullshit, the creepy guy in the trailers is L's son, and wants to get the new Kira, he is also in love with a shinigami who as you might expect, dies trying to save him
The MC is an investigator who in the end is revealed to be just another Kira who wiped his own memory in order to get into possession of the 7 death notes, because if he owns the 7, any other death note that falls into human hands will be useless because of the new rule
For some reason Light ALSO has a child who gets killed because he was too edgy and evil, shit was hilariously bad, also Misa does nothing relevant to the movie
In the end, the investigator is taken to jail but somehow L is such a bigshot that he can take Kira's place in the prison and rename Kira to be the new L AND Kira to catch brand new death note users, L kills himself and the movie ends
Its a hilarious shitfest
>>
>>154895517
>Whitewashing
Yeah because L looks so white, and besides the whole cast is shit except Dafoe.
Sad because American DN could actually work and they fucked it up.

>>
>>154894587
Light is supposed to be unironically perfect in terms of looks, personality, and brains to make him a less likely suspect for being kira
this one gives me instead the vibe of a high school loser getting his first machine gun about to go on his school shooting

also it looks like people might commit suicde instead of coincidental accidents happen to kill them, I kinda wish if they just write a name with no details of how they died that it would just be heart failure or heart attack, something about the suicide makes it kinda dumb
like "the book made me do it" sounds kinda dumb to me

>>154896634
It's real m8, sounds awful doesn't it?
It seem they took the plot of Platinum End (which is pretty much Mirai Nikki) and made a Death Note movie out of it.
Also When its revealed Light has a son is the most cringe worthy scene in the movie, they show us this little japanese kid who is evil and has this evil grin, but for some reason out of nowhere he and his mom gets killed for no reason, also its never explained who the mother was, just some random slut it seems

Light was supposed to be the best looking guy in school with constant female attention, why does he look like a narco with that weird blonde hair? Why isnt he brown haired?
What are the action sequences, its mostly light sitting down, and detectives sitting down and looking at papers/monitors.

The live-action Death Note trilogy was so good. The fact that...

... do I spoiler this? Ah, what the hell, just in case.

... L survives the second movie... for a little while longer anyhow... and goes on to be in his own spinoff for the final movie was the best. Felt almost like a Doctor Who episode only without aliens. Yeah, L was still gonna die but it was a better sendoff than in the manga/anime.

I guess the latter. Probably because of the abundance of white people in roles. Of course, Hollywood's been putting a bunch of black people as well, but people focus more on the white stuff. Personally I'd like to see more Asian actors for once, but I guess they haven't been vocal enough against that.

Either way, the real issue is American culture in Japanese plots. Not a whole lot of crossover.

I understand casting an asian actor for an asian role, but I can also understand there being difficulties in casting an entire cast of asians if the movie is being made in the US.

I mean, no one complained about the Attack on Titan movie being all-Japanese. And there's already a lot of Japanese Death Note movies, so I don't see the problem with making an American version with white/black people.

It's just that Japan is really Japanese, while America has a lot of minorities. You can certainly find an Asian actor out there, it's just that they aren't too prominent in Hollywood. It's way harder to find a good-looking fluent speaking Caucasian person in Japan, and that's why it's fine when Japan casts Japanese people.

If they were going to make a shitty netflix exclusive movie, rewriting it to be set and filmed in an american city is probably their best option. They aren't going to film in Japan, and having a full Japanese cast in an American setting would be weird.

The dumbest complaint I've seen was "This is just an excuse to not hire PoC actors" "but L is black" "That's racist too because he dies!"

Can someone explain the decision for L's being black? If it's for sjw pandering, isn't that really counterintuitive because the evil genius privileged white man kills him? (also, I don't like Light being white either. But I think there is smaller difference in aesthetics in Asian ->white
than White/japanese -> Black.)

>>154906298
Yeah me neither. Hopefully that's at least a progression shot, where it showed him after he regressions into madness
>>154906339
It does later in the series, but early on he was quite literally perfect looking, perfect conduct, grades, etc. I'm trying not to dog them too much, I'm just skeptical of them possibly making another AoT live action
>>
>>154906339
Not at all. The whole point was that Light was a person who could have been anything. He was handsome, well-groomed, knew how to excel at everything he ever touched and so on. He wasn't some sad bullied kid; he was borderline inhuman, which contributed to his inability to relate to others except in the most abstract sense.
>>
>>154895795
It's a cheap Netflix gig, not Disney's James Cameron's Death Note, written by Michael Bay and featuring Tom Cruise as Light's dad with Emma Stone as Light's imouto
>>
>>154906262
They probably just said fuck it and let's just make it an American version of the story. But when you make it an American story, people want diversity because America is diverse. It's smarter to just do that so people don't get pissed. Honestly, race swapping doesn't really matter to me unless the character becomes solely about being that race. Personally, I just think sticking to the original is better.

In all fairness, ethnicity and race are entirely irrelevant to L's character. Light is arguably an indictment of the Japanese school and family system (he seems numb and almost depressed at the beginning of the series, yet his mother only cares how great his grades are), but L could be Mongolian and it wouldn't make any difference.

the nigger that plays L plays Light instead, and vice versa. How much does it improve?

>>
>>154906599
>>154906848
Agreed, It doesn't really matter what race L is.
Although I do think sticking to the original is better if you can... but then if you have an all Japnese cast you'd probably want to film in Japan... and so on and so on. It's easier to say it's an American adaption and go from there. Honestly if you don't see a problem with Light being white, you really shouldn't see a problem with L being black.

Why does it not matter what race L, or any of the characters are? Anime/ this movie are both visual mediums. And whether we all like it or not, race definitely changes how we perceive a character. I like black characters, I just don't like changing from the source material. ( and that goes for all mediums if it can be avoided.)

>they are jsut making it more palatable for western audiences
It was already extremely popular in western countries as is. Making L black was clearly done for no other reason than to appeal to SJWs. The rest of the characters have just been made into stock teenage characters from every movie ever. Light has been made into a troubled youth who probably gets bullied, Misa is an edgy cheerleader, and many filler characters have been made into high school jocks by the looks of it.
>>
Casting thread? Fine.

Here's my pick for Light. Pretty, charismatic and already has ample experience exploding entire timelines in his mad pursuit of justice.
>>
>>154908786
too ugly

They want the nu-male narcos to project themselves onto Light after seeing how he's somehow the most popular guy in school.

Compared to "School shooter" Light, I'd rather have this instead. At least it looks like he's president of some club at this school instead of sitting alone in the cafeteria while watching lets plays on his phone.

So is his name still gonna be "Light Yagami" even though he's white?

Also if this isn't set in Japan then how does the name "Kira" work if it's not a Japanese bastardization of "killer"?

Might be that he starts by killing criminals from Japan first, so the Japanese media still give him that name.

Not sure how L homes in on him so quickly if that's the case.

Honestly outside of a complete and total rewrite, the pacing on this movie is going to be completely fucked.

Which is kind of weird, considering that the "perfect rich kid is actually a dangerous sociopath" thing is an ubiquitous cliché even in American pop culture. Hell, you could take Light, put him in a highschool movie/supernatural series/crime show, and there's a good chance the audience would say "yep, he's totally a villain" the moment they see him, just because he's too perfect. I guess that kind of character can't be the protagonist in Writerland?
>>
>>154912792
>L is a pale shut in who looks and acts awkwardly
Since when is being pale part of caracterization? It's not even a plot point.
> L is a shut in who looks and acts awkwardly
He hides his face, wears only black and looks like a Chuuni. You don't think that's ankward? I do.
> Light is a perfect student who is confident and attractive
You don't think this guy is attractive? You have some serious shit in your eyes.
And it's too early to tell whether the guy is confident or not. Light shat his pants hard the first time Ryuku appeared if you'll remember.
>They've switched everything and made L cool and confident, and made Light a crackhead loser loner
Light was always a crackhead loser loner. He just hid it well. While L, though he might have been ankward, was also cool and confident, arrogant too, read the fucking manga again.

Not really. He challenged Light to a tennis match, and proved to be fairly skilled. Also in anothe scene he nonchalantly stole Misa's cellphone, as if that was normal to him. His behaviour in general is not awkward at all, sitting and standing poses aside.

I don't really know how I feel about Light, but I actually kinda like Nigga L.

I especailly like the fact that he's actively hiding himself with the hood and scarf.
It's not just some weirdo that you can't find any information on despite sitting with and talking to him, it's a black guy who's keeping his face from the public and the killer so it can't just be looked up in any way.

I'm kinda scared of what they'll do to Ryuk but overall this looks worth a shot.

It really does. He's got such a weird face and he's so good at over-emoting that Green Goblin would have been so much better just letting him overact in green facepaint instead of that idiotic mask.

We both know they don't have the balls to pull off something like this.

Because they're realizing how big anime stream sites like crunchyroll are and are finally realizing that it's a viable market to target.
However, they seem to have no fucking clue how to adapt anime the same way they had no fucking clue when they started adapting video games.

It may get better, but it will take a long time.

Okay, can someone please explain to me how L made the assumption that something involving the supernatural was going on so early in the investigation and how this was perfectly reasonable to him?

If the exact same events were unfolding in real life, no one would be retarded enough to seriously entertain the idea that there was some magical power causing criminals to die.

When the double for L is on tv and is killed, why is the immediate assumption that Kira is able to kill anyone anywhere with some power and not that they have a leak, or that the killer (or team of killers) already know his identity and have been following him around?

it just seems so retarded to me.

When L stole Misa's phone, why didn't he put in on silent and took Light's call? Maybe Light would have asked Misa if she saw L's name without first checking her identity. It would've been instant win for L if it did happen.

Because Kira wasnt't able to kill the real L right there and then even though he dared him to.

How would a mole cause someone to have a heart attack at that precise moment, exactly?

Hundreds of people all around the world died from heart attacks. First they didn't exclude the possibility of an elaborate plot, but when Lind L Tailor died there was no room left for doubt.

How would a mole know about the whole setup but NOT that Taylor was a fake?

The police investigated the connections between the victims and found out that all of them were wanted for some crime. After that they found out that all of them had their names broadcast in the media. That made them suspicious that they're killed by some organization and not by a virus. But because there were so many people dead, it would have to be an enormous organization that couldn't hide. That made them suspect someone has something that can kill from the distance without contact. So L prepared the broadcast and found out that the first victim wasn't globaly known and was known just in a small area. So he targeted the broadcast there first. The broadcast was arranged by L with people he trusts so he was confident there wasn't a leak.
