'Death Note' is a much better drama that one may think at first. Manga and anime fans will probably dislike the first episode and the fact that L's character has been changed too much, but I decided to stop comparing this to anime and manga and ended up enjoying it immensely. Masataka Kubota is perfect as Light, he portrays Kira's crazyness the way it should be, and I also liked Mikami Teru and Mello (if I remember correctly, they were not in the pervious live action films). Maybe I'll even watch this drama again... even though I didn't understand L's final video. Did he really believe that Light understands what justice truly means, gives up his Death Note and becomes a police officer like his father? If that's how it is, I'm really sad about the way L died... not knowing that his only friend is beyond saving.

sweet lord, why. it really is dissapointing. acting, Ryuk, lack of emotions and... lack of creepiness. dissapointing.

I watched the trailer for this remake and got very disappointed with how L was interpreted. Matsuyama Kenichi did an amazing job interpreting him, since L is 'weird', but in this version, Yamazaki Kento seems to make L a 'sexy weirdo'. Kubota Masaka doesn't seem to have the same 'appeal' as Fujiwara Tatsuya when interpreting Light as well. Now I'm reconsidering if I give this remake a try or not...

Really impressive performance by Kubota Masataka. He really knocked it out of the park. I haven't read the manga, but as far as the anime goes, he embodied Light through and through. The drama was much more enjoyable than the movies for me, even though L's quirks were toned down and he wasn't as nuanced. Matsuyama Kenichi pretty much owns this character at this point, so it made sense to give him a different feel in the drama.

I wouldn't say it's an amazing drama, but it's definitely worth the watch if you're a fan of the story, provided you are able to stomach some tweaks to the original plot and characters. I'd say Kubota's performance alone makes this worth it.

i think it was okay! entertaining, at least. the changes they made didn't really bother me, and kubota was amazing as usual.

hahaha, I feel you :P. Sometimes I watch things from back when I was younger and I'm like "omg how could have I even liked that......"

I know but in the manga it somehow still made more sense to me for some reason. I think I find it easier to accept something in a manga and not so much in a TV drama with actual actors. Or maybe it really just was the fact that I was like 16 when I read it.
