You'd think that with the dragging that Iron Fist is getting for a white lead for an Asian character, you'd think Hollywood would learn its lesson but no :glare:

dragging cause of a poor writing and direction not cause of getting a white actor. 

 

So long as they don't call him Light Yagami I will be happy with the casting. (Seriously don't be that dumb)

Yeah this may just be an original story within the DN universe which I'm cool with. If he does end up being Light....well...someone needs to die

Just finished Yu-Gi-Oh on Netflix (Which only goes up to halfway through the Battle City Finals  :<_<: ) and decided that i'd rewatch Death Note next, since it popped up on my list of suggestions. Finished the first episode and I have to say i'd forgotten just how strong of a start this series has. You get an interesting premise from the jump. Typical teenage protagonist is intelligent, has a strong sense of justice, is bored with his life, and thinks the world around him is rotten. He gets an all powerful notebook that allows him to kill anyone he wants, thereby giving him the ability to take action against what he see's as the problems in the world. This really is a great break away from the typical shonen hero and high school settings in anime.

I can't force you to believe me that's your choice. People live their lives bound by what they accept as correct and true. That's how they define "reality". But what does it mean to be "correct" and "true?" Merely vague concepts...their reality may all be a mirage. Can we consider them to simply be living in their own world, shaped by their beliefs?-Itachi Uchiha

The brilliant twist is that the "protagonist" is actually the villain and the real protagonist is introduced later. You don't see many stories do that and was absolutely genius. In Bakuman, the authors described themselves as detective story tellers and were able to match the shonen genre by having two characters going at each other intellectually where finding the other's name and catching the killer in the act were simple rules and yet had an incredible amount of plays.

 

However, this manga is so messed up and depressive. L has probably one of the best character designs and I love his personality.

I'd say Light remains the protagonist, meaning the main character, throughout the entire work. He's just not the hero at any point during the story, which is what separates him from the traditional shonen protagonist like Naruto, who is both the main character and the hero. And while this becomes clear over time, it's definitely not clear within the first episode.

 

L and Light were perfect character creations though, in terms of design, personality, and in how they complemented each other. They're so perfect for one another in fact that the story suffers once one of them, L, isn't around anymore, because the entire conflict is their conflict.

This boy Light though! I'd honestly forgetten just how ruthless this scene really is. Excellent example of his ability to think quickly on his feet, to improvise, and to manipulate people all rolled up into one. This is by far one of the coldest moments in the show! Dude looks Ray Penbder's fiance right in her eyes as he reveals who he is, knowing she can't do anything about it because he just wrote her name in the Death Note, forcing her to go commit suicide. Cold as ice!

"Ass Pull": Often the first term people use to show how dissatisfied they are with something before it can be explained.

 

"Bull shit": often the first term used when a person expresses their dissatisfaction with something and they don't like the explaination.

Looks like it's being put into a single book.

 

The questions though is this an early April Fool's joke or legit....

You could effectively use that as a Death Note by dropping it on someones head from some height.

Did they do that categorically or because they didn't like any of them?

They just told this one guy that auditioned for Light that they weren't casting an Asian to play that character

I find it ironic how there arent that much people are complaining that the real best character in this series isn't Asian
