    I have just one simple rule for movie adaptations of anime:

    Don't do 'em. They suck 99.9% of the time.

    They just never live up to animation and comic art, where the media itself it half the fun.

    And launch a trend of stupid kids writing names of other kids in a Death Note replica.
    Oh wait, its already happening.

    Ghost in The Shell live action starring 'Stealth Jew' Scarlett Johansson would like a word with you.

    Say what you will about the GitS adaptation, but anything that gets ScarJo in skin-tight leather clothing again is okay with me. Besides, I have no high hopes for the GitS movie being good. Live-action adaptations of anime all suck.

    That's exactly what Hollywood does to 'put asses in seats' at the expense of tarnishing the series.

    Whitewashing at its finest. But alas, horny neckbeards will have no issue as long as they have something to fap to

    For the love of fuck, why can't they just leave Death Note alone? Why do they have to shit all over the franchise by making a million inferior versions?

    And why must Hollywood ruin everything I love?

    To be fair though, Death Note took a shit all over itself after L died.

    Rather have Hollywood than any producer from Japan. Japanese actors are the worst actors in world when it comes to live action performance.

    I never bought into the idea that shitty reboots or sequels in some shape or form affect the original.

    But they do. The originals will be harder to find and talk about. You can't just say the name and expect everyone to be on the same page. You also have to add "the original". Or even worse, "the version from that specific year". Because nobody you talk to even knows which is the original anymore, because there are like 60 different versions of it.

    For example

    A: "Hey have you seen 'The Great Gatsby'?"
    B: "Yeah, I really liked Leonardo DiCaprio."
    A: "What are you talking about, that guy was born the year Robert Redford starred in it..?"
    C: "Huh? Robert Redford was just a boy when I saw this back in 1949."
    D: "You guys and all your shitty reboots, don't you even remember the original from 1926?"

    But do you believe the number of people who saw the orivaginal of 1926 would in some shape increase without them reboots?

    In mein opinion even terrible movies like Clash of the Titans get people interested in reading actual Greem mythology.
    At worst, it doesn't and the status quo is preserved, no harm done to the original.

    They don't affect the original source material per se, but they do affect the perspectives of both generations young and old.

    bro, chill. they're adapting death note and not merely rehashing everything. Furthermore, it's Netflix, not Hollywood slather, producing it. let's see where they'll take this before we bring out pitchforks.

    Personally, I don't think ANY of the casting fit their respective roles. The black guy was just the most obvious. But I wouldn't single him all--none of these people fit their characters.

    But... all movies must have at least one black guy, and the whitest guy turning black is exactly the kind of affirmative action needed for a colorblind society.

    You're not supposed to notice that the white guy is black, if you do, shame on you.

    You're also not supposed to notice the tranny playing Mia either.

    I see no reason to spew hatred towards Jews. I'm sure some anime fans equally disappointed about this movie are Jewish.

    I'd target Hollywood's ultra-liberals more than merely Jews. Ever-PC super-liberals ruin everything--and come in all colors.

    Samuel L. Jackson is always the exception. I'd pay to see him play any role. lol

    Hell, he can play Jesus and I'd go see it. That's actually be kinda awesome.

    Is this a joke? Who are these people? I've never heard of or seen any of them before. Took me a while to figure out who the fuck "James Turner" is supposed to be.

    Not being racist or anything, but it already looks like another poor attempt at pandering to "diversity".

    This cast is a bad joke, neither of them fit any of the roles, in the anime.
    This is typical Netflix Cashgrab tactics at work here!

    A good part of the anime is the characters thoughts which they just ignored on the japanese version. I assume this will be the same.

    Yeah, it's funny. Folks are losing their shit over the black guy, when I'm like, "NONE of these fuckers fit their roles!"
