  1. Hi there, I’ve watched this movie. This movie was really good, so you have watched too, yeah.? Though, I didn’t really like the plot of the story, but I have to admit that the ending of the story was really good. It seems Tatsuya Fujiwara still keeping his great character after played his movie named Death Note.

    By the way, I’ve watched Death note too. There’re three series movies in total, which the two movies tell about the fight between Light Yagami and detective mysterious L. And the final movie tells about the last life of detective mysterious L. So, I am guessing, you’ve known of this, right.? 🙂
