Viz Gets ‘Death Note’ Live Action Features
Theatrical and DVD Rights

Viz Pictures has acquired the North American theatrical and DVD rights to the two live action Death Note features: Death Note and Death Note: The Last Name.

The first Viz screenings will be at Austin’s Fantastic Fest this weekend and at the Vancouver Asian Film Festival in November.

Ray’s take: hit me but I haven’t seen any Death Note at all. Just never got around to it. I did remember the movies did very well in when they came out here in Taiwan. From everything I’ve heard, it’s recommended.

  1. Jeremy–a huge Death Note fan–really dislikes the live action movies. Says they got the characters wrong, big time. I haven’t watched them myself, but I certainly highly recommend the anime.

  2. I like the Live Action movies. They did do things a bit different, but I thought it made a lot of sense, and as a story, stayed true to the basic characters.

    Now as far as the anime goes, I wish they would have quit at about episode 25, so since the anime doesn’t try to fit in the second anime arc, which I felt was vastly inferior to the first, that may have something to do with my like of the movies.

    My General thought would be

    First Anime Arc > Live Action Movies > Second Anime Arc.
