I wasn't too sure about it at first either, but I actually kind of like the fact that there are some differences to keep it interesting. Otherwise, I might just get bored if it were just a straight scene-for-scene remake of the anime.

I think making Light more of a normal person driven by circumstances is more interesting than a genius sociopath with a god complex. But that's just me.

Just watched it this afternoon and oh wow! Oh wow! Oh wow! I'm really loving it! Despite some of the differences in the storyline & character's personalities, it doesn't bother or phase me at all because it's still just as good and enjoyable as it's three live-action movies! Ryuk is amusing as ever as always and I'm totally loving the guy who plays L already

I watched this a few days ago and was slightly disappointed in the flow of things. It could have been the lack of subs but I feel that there was not enough detail / explanation. I knew what was happening from the anime, but If someone who has never seen Death Note watched this, they might've been a little slow. Could just be because it was the first episode, right?

I'm looking forward to how they further change up their storyline. Although a character I don't care for is getting a lead role, a character I do like also seems to be a main focus so I'm going to look past that.

I remain nothing but positive and open minded about this show, as I for one am already really loving it

I really loved the first episode a different take on Death Note who wants to watch the exact same thing over and over again it's good to do it differently.

The guy who plays L looks like he's gonna be so amazingly cool

I just can't quite work out if the person playing Near is actually a guy or a girl though, lol!

So a few thoughts on what I've seen so far.
I don't know if I like or dislike the New L. He's a different character than in the anime/manga: he's more emotional, doesn't eat sweets exclusively, is fastidious about dirt and apparently is all too willing to show his face to the cops. In the anime, he waited until most of the cops quit; what made this L decide he can show his face to Matsuda and the other guys? I'm not going to complain that he's a bad character because he's different to the original L; that's a stupid argument to make.

So thoughts on Episode 3
I'm not sure where they're going with Near and Puppet!Mello. Why the change? Is the person playing Near a boy or girl? I honestly can't tell! What's Near doing to investigate? Nothing's been shown except of him/her sitting on the stairs with a computer. L is shown using manpower, what about Near? How does Near expect to catch Kira just sitting on the stairs?

As for what L did in this episode


Did anyone else think of a different plan that Light could have used? I had hoped they wouldn't just reuse the walkie-talkie from the manga.

I personally think that Near is played by a girl, either that or a very feminine boy, lol!

Near is played by a girl, but I'm not sure if the character is supposed to be a girl or just a young boy. I'm more curious about Mello. Is he supposed to be some sort of demon like entity or is Near just deranged in this version?

It's certainly a very interesting and intriguing new twist indeed...I'm sure we'll find out soon enough
