20-Year-Old Hinako Sano Cast as Misa in "Death Note" TV Drama

New adaptation features Light as an ordinary university student

Following Masataka Kubota as Light Yagami, Kento Yamazaki as L, and Mio Yuuki as Near, more cast for the upcoming live-action TV drama adaptation of the Death Note manga series created by Tsugumi Ohba (story) and Takeshi Obata (art) have been revealed to Japanese media. 20-year-old fashion model/gravure idol Hinako Sano is set to play popular idol character Misa Amane.

 

The TV drama adaptation will feature the protagonist Light Yagami as an ordinary university student, instead of the genius high school student as he was illustrated in the beginning of the manga story. It is set to begin on Nihon TV and its affiliates at every Sunday night from this July.
