No. Just, no. First of all I believe if you film an anime irl, use actors of the anime's origin instead of americans. Secod of all I've yet to see any anime that got filmed in irl that was actually good..
O damn I love death note but these characters are so wrong, nah Im not feeling this at all. Is watari supposed to be that Asian guy? Nah he's supposed to be an old man. Well lets hope its good but this wasn't needed, the original was good enough.
keith is an interesting choice for L lol. But i was a huge fan of deathnote. Probably one of the most intricate animes out there. Its just a shame that it was only a couple seasons, but i'd be open to a live action adaptation of it. I think there already has been a movie or something done on the show though
