That actually wouldn't have been the worst casting.

Though the guy they have playing L is someone I've never seen before, for all I know he fits the roles well.

For this whole time I thought it was going to be a series. You know its going to be shit when an entire series, movie or manga, is going to be stuffed into a movie. It might have had a chance if it was a series.
>>
>>154928830
Calm down fag. Just like in case of Edge~, they seem to be using just the most vital parts of the story. In Netflix movie the MC seems to be pretty average guy unlike genius level Yagami. Whole movie might be focused more on him trying to get away from nigger L instead of creating a perfect world.

I'm not saying it will be good. But if they are not going to force original story into a single movie it has chance of being decent.

Has anyone seen it yet? episodes? trailer?
But most importantly, does the guy playing light give off that crazy "I think I'm god" aura/vibe? Thats almost as important as L's skin color if you ask me.

Can't have some candy ass playing light.

More of a futile angsty teenager "I AM the best, stop laughing!" sort of way. He looks like the kind of kid that'd brag about how awesome he is when he couldn't even fold his own laundry and then burst into futile cuckold tears if you accidentally bumped past him on the street. It's like the polar opposite of Light's complex, but also done very deliberately to pander to some vogue school shooter stereotype

And yet making L white would have still been less jarring than making him black. It just feels forced in todays climate and you know it.

Honestly, It wouldn't have been as bad i they made him fucking anything BUT black. white, Asian, mandarin, British(I rather like this one), mexican, Italian, Eskimo, fucking Brazilian. But NO he is black.

As we all know, the only way to diversify something is to cram as many black people as possible into it.

>>154929418

I'm actually okay with this, maybe they'll try to do a different spin on the story than just try to adapt it straight.
>>154929519
Your right about this but then again, it's the United States. Black people aren't exactly a minority even if they get called that in some contexts.
Has it been done because of "muh diversity"? Yeah possibly. But it's not jarring setting-wise.

Which is more likely
They chose the best person based on their acting abilities to be L or some kike wanted to shill niggers even harder so picked a black guy to be progressive?

Schwarzeneggers a little too beefy to play star platinum if you ask me. More fitting for the world.

But who's physique would be a good fit for SP?
>>
>>154929764
Its not so much his race as his appearance, same with Light.

It tells you a lot about the characters instantly that one is pale, lanky, awkward, dishevelled, bags under the eyes, while the other is well proportioned, handsome, and groomed.

You aren't going to get that by casting a good looking black fella and a weeny little nerd.

They could have avoided this whole shitstorm by just adapting the premise and going with their own characters and story. Its not like the actual plot of Death Note is that great.

It's being directed by the same person who did the new Blair Witch and both V/H/S/ shitshows.

You can convay the same kind of thing with mannerisms and costume. One dresses normally, the other covers his face up and wears a hoodie. Anime is heavily expressionist so it feels the need to beat you over the head with these things sometimes.

Anon is lying. Adam Wingard (the director) only did one segment on each V/H/S, in the first one he did Tape 56 and in the second one he did Phase I Clinical Trials,

He also directed The Guest
>>
>>154930377
But it is, they make sequels and reboots because of a thing called brand recognition. Even kids know what these things are because of constant pop media references and spinoff media.

Why do you think all the attempts to reboot a bunch of the things that never really survived being more than quotes did well? Why do you think marvel movies are currently the biggest things known to man?

It's not because "omg so geeky", it's kids.

I actually don't have a problem with L being black. They're just doing an American version of Death Note, so they're adding races you can find in the US, mainly white and black.

However, I don't get why people are complaining about the actors not being Asian. There's nothing strictly Asian about Death Note. The characters have Japanese names, and that's it. The story could take place anywhere and with any race.

(Not to mention no one's complaining about the live actions of FMA and AOT being all japanese... )

>>
>>154930649
The movie it was based on was a liberal indy movie made by a self hating white man to tell the story of poor oppressed black people they actually know nothing about

Ironically the movie came off more that reverse racism aka black culture fucked up black people more than anything white people can do since the black lead had to constantly dumb herself down to get along with her fellow black friends since they hated intelligence and attributed it to white people. When this was pointed out to the creator he threw an autistic shitfit and said people misinterpreted his message.

Light clearly wasn't a god but he was most certainly the best human being shown in the series, not a delusional, pathetic teenage emo. That's the whole fucking point and appeal of the character, for fuck's sake.

Light is THE smooth operator.

You don't know what a God complex is do you? And you are talking about Yagami Light, the guy who ended the first episode by saying he shall become God of the new world.
>A god complex is an unshakable belief characterized by consistently inflated feelings of personal ability, privilege, or infallibility.

>A person with a god complex may refuse to admit the possibility of their error or failure, even in the face of irrefutable evidence, intractable problems or difficult or impossible tasks. The person is also highly dogmatic in their views, meaning the person speaks of their personal opinions as though they are unquestionably correct. Someone with a god complex may exhibit no regard for the conventions and demands of society, and may request special consideration or privileges.

You simply have shit taste.
>>
>>154931401
Yeah, that's a big part of what this adaptation is inevitably going to miss.
Light had a massive, world-eclipsing ego, but he was justified in thinking highly of himself. He was pretty much an extreme of over-achieving technical genius on top of being attractive and socially capable. He had everything and knew exactly how much he had.

The point was that even when you're someone like that, the lengths he went to and the decisions he made were still difficult to justify. He was the closest a person is capable of getting to someone that should decide who lives and dies, which is what made the drama interesting. There was an uncomfortable moral ambiguity to his actions being disgusting and his justification being intellectual. He thought he was infallible because he was damn close to being infallible, which made his falliblity all the more interesting.

If you strip all that away and leave him as just some angsty, insecure teenager desperate to justify his mountain of flaws and glaring lack of social aptitude with unwarranted pride, then it just becomes pathetic and morally unambiguous. It raises no interesting questions except "why do we let mentally ill losers free in society?"

Did we watch the same show. Light constantly lost his shit over petty bullshit and acted bat shit insane because of his god complex. The whole reason he gets caught in the first place is because he just *had* to fight L and the police despite them having no way to track him down.
Only difference we can tell so far is that anime Light is more handsome.

Light didn't kill criminals just for the sake of it, he didn't plan to stop, he wanted to mold a new society. He couldn't have done all that if he didn't fight L.

This is L in costume. He looks like a more realistic version of L than what the series had. Not like Death Note was supposed to be realistic, but you can't cry about L being an attractive black guy when he looks more suspicious than Light. L is still emo, race doesn't matter.

I'm pretty sure this is L, because white using a black guy a proxy would just unleash twitter and tumblr upon Netflix.

Unless he turns out to be a latino.

This showed that Hollywood anime adaptations don't work, but is old enough that people have forgotten it, and so they're trying again.
Too bad anime isn't obscure enough anymore for GitS and this Death Note series to be flops. The premises are more accessible than Dragon Ball, so even if they're not great successes they will at the very least break even.

I don't know, he's giving me a weird vibe. He doesn't look like the type to be a school shooter - he looks like a kid whose parents didn't give him enough attention, so he gave himself a faggy haircut to make them notice him. But on the other hand, look closer. He's either a frequent user of drugs, or has mental problems. They probably wanted to make allusions to him being a potential school shooter - but the shinigami dropped the note at the right time, and saved a school from being shot in favour of criminals.
I'm not going to watch that video and make their video viral, fuck that.

This is NOT Light. This is some drugged-out weakling who kills because he hates, not because he's desensitized to the modern world.

Whats better than coming up with an original idea for a "thriller" or whatever the fuck you call death note?

Stealing someone another person's idea and putting your own shitty creative vision into it. This has been time and time again, and it isn't all too surprising it happened to death note. I don't really know why they needed [Jama]L though, I prefered to think of L as some super pale dude who didn't go outside much and thats easier to show on a white person or a Nip.

Exhibit A.

The influx of anime/manga adaptations is just some faggots with money who cannot afford known super heroes to jump on that bandwagon, tossing their money what they think is 'the next best thing' and totally fucking up the entirety of it for everyone.

This is where video games started to decline. Everyone was looking to make a buck from it, normies that previously had no interest in it start to take notice, they flood the market, some of them start getting ideas and having opinions that specific works should be done one way or another, feminist and SJW fucks start throwing their opinions and ideas in the mix, and soon the whole is just even more shit than before with the literal garbage being the most hyped up, expensive, and disappointing shit.

>>154942189
Funny, this looks like the type of adaption that caters to those edgy people you described.

Light looks like he straight up uses the Death Note to take care of some school bullies, the edgiest of edge moves. Then there's action shit for almost no reason, like hanging out of a helicopter.

Netflix shows usually have phenomenal direction (House of Cards, Narcos) so you would think they would hire someone who understood the themes and atmosphere to make a western adaptation.

But nope instead we get one of the most themactic and atmospheric animes reduced some ugly western thriller adaptation with terrible casting and marketed to the people who like Transformers or the Hunger Games.

The casting for this movie is the best 4D chess in cinema I've seen for a long time.

The same people bitching about white washing are at a loss because then they'd have to complain about L being played as a black guy and not a white guy like in the series.

The people solely angry about L being black are at a loss because then they would have to complain about 99% of the rest of the cast being race swapped to white.

The people angry that there are no Asians can just be told to fuck off and just watch the first live action movie.

I think Berserk or Claymore would be easy conversions from anime to live action western cinema. With all the attention Berserk is getting now I wouldn't be surprised if something was made in the next 5 years.

most anime/manga designs only work in anime/manga. they only look good on the page. most of the time when stuff transitions to live action, unless there are serious redesigns, it's gonna look shit and cartoony and it will stick out like a sore thumb.

L in the live action japanese films looked fucking lame. because when someone tries to look like L in real life they look like a fucking cosplayer.

i don't understand why you are so desperate that the actors should look like the fucking 2D characters. you reduce characters down to a hairstyle and an outfit basically. i'd much rather have them cast actors who could actually bring something to the role.

Remember all those black African Gaelics who lives in Rome?

I think worse than L being black, is he looks like some underground hacker based from Seattle. So it just feels forced as hell

Roland can't be black. That's Susannah's thing.

No he's not ((((they)))) tried to take the parenthesis but gave up when they realized they were playing into our hands.

Another example of exemplary casting for a well received movie. Remember, they chose the best man for the job.

Susannah is going to be white and get blacked. There's no ulterior agenda and it's all just crazy cooky conspiracy theorists. Don't follow the money, that has never ever worked in history.

But... that doesn't make any sense.

Well if you're going to ground the show in american west then it kinda works for the character's aesthetic to change to suit that, and looking like some inner city techno delinquent sells the supergenius angle better than looking like a teen autist. Plus the hacker look works the whole 'assisting the police' angle since that's basically what every good hacker eventually graduates to.

If he was a slave then why wasn't he picking cotton in America, the only country in the world to ever have slaves?

Light looks like a fucking drug addict and the trailer looked awful. I hope this is Dragonball Evolution levels of bad. Netflix is for retarded normies anyways.

I would've given it chance and the benefit of the doubt if it was an episodic series, but they're cramming tons of plot points into a 2 hour movie, so it's probably going to be shit.
>>
Oh that's disappointing. I love You're Next and The Guest. The V/H/S have some high points too, but not sure if any of his shorts were them.

Blair Witch was garbage from the start with Borderlands to the bullshit ending.

I think I wrote about this before when the show was just announced, but L being black is actually a genius part on the writers

Light being white and L being black works on multiple symbolic levels

1. Light represents the current justice system where white people get to deem final judgement on those they deem criminals. L represents those who wish to fix the twisted justice system and restore it to what it's supposed to be

2. Light represents how white people in general, get put, undeserving, into positions of power and get to make huge decisions compared to the actual competent people like, L, an actual detective, who have to go through so many hoops and bureaucratic red tape just to do their jobs.

3. Light represents how white criminals have such a huge advantage (The "deathnote") that they make life so difficult for black members of law enforcement

It's a really well done symbolism that poetically works on so many levels, if you only think about it

This is one case where "blackwashing" is actually good as it gives the story more depth.

No-name look-alikes with a history of classical acting.
It'd be set in New York but not in the city, and the story would make Ray Penber a bigger part of the plot since it wouldn't be able to get very far past that point + exposition. It would include many of the bigger schemes and tricks from later in the series and condense them into the regeared plot, but not enough that it makes the pacing feel awkward.
Light would not be the main focus of it, and for the first quarter of the movie we wouldn't even see who it was or how the killings were happening. Advertising would not show any indication of the actual death note, L, or Light and would focus on Penber instead.
Light's actions would be set up to seem closer to that of the mannerisms of the Zodiac killer. There would be very subtle hints to shinigami but they would be a story hidden beneath the story for more intelligent audience members to notice and head nods to fans of the series.

It wouldn't show him killing any real major politicians or real life counterparts, at first only criminals and then outspoken police officers and later in the movie every-day citizens from news and media who say anything bad about Light.

What did he mean by this?
>>
>>154932275

He's out in the open when he goes to chat with Light at his university, exams etc. Though he doesn't address an audience with a 'I am L' thing. Granted he uses fake names and stuff, but he's still putting his face out there.

Why didn't light just go look up the records of that years entrance ceremony and have watch a recording or look at a photo.

The word Kira is derived from 'Kyrie' meaning God.
>>
Question for the mangafriends that read it weekly before it ended. Did Madhouse/Araki really ask Ohba to change the ending of the series so Light loses or is that a rumor anime fans made up?
>>
>>154956162
I don't know about that but it's clear from just how most of the other death note users ended that Light wouldn't make it. There's some kind of paranormal quality to it that causes it's user to die in misfortune compared to what their goals were.
