Original title : Desu nôto: Light Up the New World
The Death Note, much more dangerous than the UKIP manifesto, kills everyone who’s name is inscribed in its pages. Ten years ago an epic confrontation took place between Kira, the owner of the Death Note, and the genius eccentric L. After the latter put an end to the menace, nothing more was heard from the cursed note book. But that was only the quiet before the next storm. Shinigami, the God of Death, is bored stiff with his falling statistics and decides to up the ante by releasing not one but six Death Note’s on Earth. A Russian doctor begins to practice euthanasia in black ink, a New York trader starts to eliminate the competition and a sociopath teenager randomly scribbles names in his new notebook. And where are the 3 other Death Note’s? A world massacre is taking place on an unprecedented scale.
Death Note, The mythical manga of Tsugumi Oba and Takeshi Obata, was an unprecedented success with more than 20 million copies sold before getting adapted into a series of films. You know the two directed by Shusuke Kaneko, presented at the BIFFF, and Hideo Nakata’s spin-off, L: Change the World. This time, it’s the best of the best who directs this epic finale: Shinsuke Sato, responsible for The Princess Blade, Gantz and especially our Golden Raven 2016, I am a Hero. Adam Wyngard is already wondering how he’s going to surpass this, as he prepares the American remake.
