>BASED ON THE INTERNATIONAL PHENOMENON
why don't they just say anime/manga?
>we're about to see a wave of children being arrested for making their own Death Notes AGAIN
what a time to be alive
>Its a normies post how'd they death note Trump episode
>give a bullied, loner guy a death note
>guys who use to bully him are the first to die
>L figures out who KIRA is in 2 days
Why would you make Light into the one stereotype that would probably shoot up a school. The point of Light was to make no one suspect him, because he was handsome, popular, had good grades, and a loving family.
Can't say anime, those people are huge nerds that masturbate things that aren't porn stars swearing everywhere. Anime is inferior to American culture, who in their right mind wants to see all that violence and partial nudity in a cartoon, cartoons are supposed to be for children. Unless they're written by adult comedians, those are acceptable.
Casuals that are vaguely interested in things because they heard it in a passing conversation, but never looked into it because it's some dumb anime that hasn't been improved to meet western standards.
>Worst case scenario: It's total shit, meme material for years
Memes are the only good thing that can possibly come out of this shitshow, I'm expecting great things from /a/ and /tv/
>rich white boy decides to extrajudicially execute criminals in America
Because pic related would happen.
Death note has a premise that could work for a mass audience beyond weeb if done right. However best case scenario you're looking at is edge of tomorrow.
One plus of all this is that it can't look worse than Japan's
A pale malnourished nerd turns into a black guy.
I'm watching for the chaos of:
>are they gonna let Kira win?
>if yes, how are they gonna handle Near?
>if no, imagine the riot.
Just like Breaking Bad:
>Find Meth with very high purity
>Discover that the meth cook has access to the school supply room
>remember that your brother-in-law was trained as a chemist and is also a teacher at said school
I assumed that would be cringey and it was but still that actually is a fair point
inb4 all the criminals he kills with it are white despite or they go out of their way to have a scene where he doesn't kill a black person because he dindu nuffin and waito understands that to appeal to sjw
Knowing the state of Hollywood/Netflix he'll only target investment bankers, racist politicians, and online trolls
I wonder if they plan to keep the manga/anime's conclusion of the crime rate disappearing because of Light's new regime. In order to make a convincingly peaceful America they'd have to show some pretty disturbing slaughter of everyday criminals.
They'd like to reach the millennial audience, so they are remaking a story that has been successful with other segments of the millennial audience in the past.
L doesn't die at the end of this one so that there's the possibility of a sequel if it does well
Willem Dafoe Ryuk is the only good thing.
Light being a loner school shooter type makes no sense.
They probably aren't even clever enough for the black guy to be the equivalent of Lind L. Taylor, he's probably just L.
Edge of tomorrow was a movie that did poorly but was done much better than expected, and turned out pretty good. They don't know how to market weeb adaptions well, just look at the shitshow of GitS
If you say normie instead of normalfag, you are without a doubt a filthy off-boarder that needs to get the fuck out or kill yourself. I second his sentiment. Either fuck off back to /r9k/ or lurk more.
Fuck white-washing, but making the protagonist white in a story about a middle-class sociopathic murderer is extremely appropriate, so it works out, I guess.
They changed the setting, so a shifted racial makeup would be expected.
If the remake took place in Nigeria, wouldn't it be appropriate to use Nigerian actors? In the same token, wouldn't it be strange if the main cast were entirely Japanese?
If they decided to keep it set in Tokyo but used exclusively American actors that would be really weird. Of course, being of one particular race isn't critical to any of the characters, so none of it really matters anyway.
It was good for a laugh. Some 2d properties just shouldn't be translated into live action
>half of all anime feature ridiculous attempts to depict western people
>half of all anime awkwardly borrow from either Christianity or European mythology
>Western adaptation of anime is "white washing"
Because the way L acts wouldn't appeal to mainstream america, so they have his character toned way down and washed out until he's just the standard eccentric genius you've see a million times before. It's sort of like the Sherlock Holmes character that's gotten so popular again recently. There's sex appeal to it that draws in female viewers, but the new rule in america is that you can't promote caucasian sex appeal so they just went down the list to the next colour.
