DEATH NOTE 1
Popular manga series Death Note first appeared in Weekly Shonen Jump in December 2003. With its anti-hero protagonist, dark psychological themes, innovative premise, and unpredictable plot twists, Death Note was an instant hit, amassing an avid readership in its three years of serialization. It was later published in a 12-volume set in multiple languages, selling 18 million copies worldwide. In summer 2006, the film version of Death Note, starring Fujiwara Tatsuya and Matsuyama Kenichi became a blockbuster success throughout Asia.
Death god Ryuk has attracted much attention in the film. Nakamura Shidou's (Be with You) voice convincingly attributes a personality to this CG-generated character. Ryuk leaves his killing weapon, the Death Note, in the mortal world, just to see what will happen. As the instructions within the notebook clearly state, the human whose name is written in the notebook dies.
Bright and restless student Light (Fujiwara Tatsuya) picks up the notebook, and soon realizes the power that has been bestowed upon him. He adopts the name Kira (Killer) and sets about ridding the world of criminals. His callous renegade justice, however, is not tolerated by the authorities. Faced with so many unexplained deaths, the police enlist the assistance of the young genius L, whose eccentricity is aptly portrayed by Matsuyama Kenichi. And so begins a dangerous battle of wits between the mysterious L and the increasingly calculating Light.
DEATH NOTE 2 - THE LAST NAME
After sweeping through Japan and Hong Kong in the summer of 2006, manga-turned-blockbuster Death Note presents its thrilling conclusion in the highly anticipated sequel, Death Note: The Last Name. Topping the Japanese box office for four straight weeks, Death Note: The Last Name decides the fates of anti-hero protagonist Yagami Light and quirky, sweets-consuming detective L. Fujiwara Tatsuya and Matsuyama Kenichi, who will also be starring in an L spin-off film scheduled for release in 2007, reprise their signature roles, alongside new cast member Toda Erika and not one, but two CGI Death Gods. Full of unpredictable twists, probing mind games, and gallows humor, the film is as enthralling as it is challenging, bringing a new level of wit and tension to popcorn entertainment. Featuring a shocking new ending especially crafted for the film, Death Note: The Last Name will leave a lasting impression on viewers.
Death Note owner Light (Fujiwara Tatsuya) joins the police team in order to square off against his rival L (Matsuyama Kenichi), who rightly suspects Light of being Kira. Both Light and L are thrown off, however, when another Kira appears. A second Death Note has fallen to earth, and this time it gets picked up by idol Amane Misa (Toda Erika), who acquires the power to kill with "the eyes". An ardent Kira fan, Misa eagerly teams up with Light to outwit L in an elaborate plan, but L has more than a few schemes up his sleeve as well. Who will be the last man standing? Who will be the last name in the Death Note?
DEATH NOTE 3 - L CHANGE THE WORLD
L: Change the WorLd (also known as Death Note: L, change the WorLd or Death Note III), directed by Hideo Nakata, is a spin-off film and a sequel to the Death Note film series. The series is based on the manga Death Note by Tsugumi Ohba and illustrated by Takeshi Obata, but follows an original storyline. The film was released in Japan on February 9, 2008, Hong Kong on February 7, 2008, Singapore on February 21, 2008, and the United Kingdom on December 29, 2008.
Ken'ichi Matsuyama reprises his role as L from the previous Death Note films. The film chronicles the final 23 days of L's life, as he solves one final case involving a bio-terrorist group that aims to wipe out much of humanity with a virus with one-hundred times the virulence of Ebola. He takes a boy he names Near, the sole survivor of its use in a village in Thailand, and an elementary schooler named Maki Nikaido under his wing.
Dr. Nikaido, a research doctor, has received news and a sample of a deadly virus which affected a now destroyed village in Thailand. He discovers that the virus is one-hundred times stronger than Ebola. His seemingly trustworthy assistant outs herself to be the leader of the organization that created the virus, which is still incomplete due to the lack of an antidote. Dr. Nikaido, who had managed to create an antidote, refused to give her the antidote and preferred to be dead rather than endanger the world. Realizing that she could not get the antidote from the doctor, the assistant kills him, now convinced that his daughter Maki has a deciphered formula for the antidote.
Maki, who had witnessed the murder, runs away in fear, eventually finding L's headquarters. Soon after she finds him, the bio-terrorist group tracks Maki down, forcing L, accompanied by Maki and Near, to runaway to a high-tech truck concealed as a sweets delivery truck dubbed "Angel Crepe" with the help of a Japanese-American FBI agent. L seeks the help of Dr. Nikaido's research partner to create a antidote for the virus. Eventually finding that Near contains the secret to the antidote, L manages to acquire a quantity of the antidote just as the bio-terrorist group is about to take an infected Maki to Washington in America to try to spread the virus. L manages to stop the plane before departing Thailand and giving all infected passenger, including the bio-terrorist, the antidote. The movie conclude with L leaving Near at Whammys House and giving him his "real name" to Near and his toy robot which is shown in the main Death Note series.
Shunji Fujimura also reprises his role as Watari, though the character dies early in the film as prior the events of The Last Name. The major characters of the main plot such as Light Yagami (Kira), Misa Amane, and Shinigami Ryuk all have brief cameos in the film.
