Trailer was actually kinda good except for the fact that they couldn't find a jap to play Light, nor L, nor Misa, but could find one to get punked by some thugs at the very beginning.

I guess it's to be expected from Hollywood, but at least now I can rest easy knowing Netflix isn't going to totally butcher one of my favorite manga.

You'd have to delete a substantial amount of threads to enforce that

Like it or not Hollywood seems really gung ho on adapting a lot of anime/manga for the west so why is it irrational to want to talk about with people who have actually read the source material?

I feel like they changed all the characters too much, at least from the trailer. L is kind of the same, but Misa and Light are very different.
>>
I think it *could* be good if they focus on the mental game between Light and L and it could be amazing if they make good use of Hollywood's inexplicable to need to fuck with source material to clean up the latter half a little bit. Not sure about most of the casting yet, except Dafoe is probably about as perfect of a western Ryuuk as you're going to get.

Unfortunately it wouldn't surprise me the least bit if they make it a shlocky hybrid of a western crime procedural and a mediocre action flick.

You should read it instead. The VN isn't that long, especially since the side routes are short, and does a better job of establishing tension. The phone is a neat mechanic too and you get to hear a lot of Okabe's internal thoughts that flesh him out better.

Can someone explain to me what is so different about Light based on 2 fucking minutes?
He can still be super similar to his animated/manga counterpart, just maybe different looking.

People are getting so butthurt about tiny little bullshit. Its an ADAPTATION. If it want to adapt to the west, or eve modern times, there's nothing wrong with changing up things.

Especially since you have to consider a weekly series in the form of comics or a tv show is a way different way of consuming media than a movie, they create tension differently, they also pace differently for obvious reasons I hope I don't have to explain to you nitpicking retards.

Making a 1:1 adaptation in a completely different medium and wanting it to be actually good is just thinking inside of your tiny bubble.

Light was popular, smart, and attractive. He was shown to be a model student. The first time he used the death note he thought it was just some joke and used it because he was bored.
And he was also good at manipulating people like Misa, and even members of the Police. He even tricked Naomi and Ray, two FBI agents, into giving him their names.


This live action Light looks like a lesbian, and got the shit kicked out of him, presumably standing up for the chick during the ally mugging. Making it look more like he'll use the note book out of pettyness towards being beat up.

Also the girl (presumably Misa) is the one who talks Light into using the note book more, which is out of character for him. As is his feeling of "not being the good guy anymore" because Light was shown to believe he was good and in the right no matter who he killed because it was all for a better world.

Being a cash in doesn't necessarily mean it will be bad.

The Lego movie had nothing but intentions of publicity and grabbing money from people's pockets, yet it was incredibly well received critically.

They're not changing for the better. Making it a big action movie with set pieces and a white knight Kira isn't going to be appealing to the west or the anime fans of the original. When changing things for adaptation, you should keep the spirit of the property in tact or improve where the creator faltered.
>>
>>159259357
Just you wait. Against the wishes of most of /a/, this will end up being huge for Netflix (because if Netflix makes it, it has to be good, right?) and a year from now they'll be announcing a live action adaptation of Code Geass where for some reason Japan is part of Britannia and it's the US that the newly occupied country that becomes Area 11.

It'd be fine if the premise of this movie was basically, "What if an American kid got the Death Note instead of a Japanese kid?" But no, they're trying to make this an adaptation of the original while retaining none of it.

watch it and read the vn if you have a vita. Maho is a character who only shows up in the sequel (which I think is supposed to get adapted in the next year or so as well) btw. the whole thing is arguably plebbit af (especially the anime) but it's still really enjoyable and well worth watching
