-L change the world-
Synopsis from the press kit:
To solve the KIRA Case, L (Kenichi Matsuyama) leaves
Known as Kira, Light Yagami (Tatsuya Fujiwara) uses the Death Note to attempt to become God of a criminal-free new world. L tries to end the case by revealing Kira’s true identity. As the ferocious battle of wits between the two geniuses is about to reach the climax, a small village in
The KIRA case closes but L loses his mentor, Watari (Shunji Fujimura). Watari had established the Wammy’s House where L grew up and was L’s most trusted partner. His unpredicted death leaves L devastated. In the 23 days that he has left in the human world, L takes on the task of solving the cases left by Watari even though he was plagued by the enormous loss. As all the cases get solved, a ‘gift’ addressed to Watari arrives. This ‘gift’ turns out to be a little boy. From the SD card that the taciturn BOY (Narushi Fukuda) has in his possession, L learns that the child is the only survivor of the already exterminated Thai village. L also discovers the conspiracy behind the Thai village tragedy with the use of a man-made “God of Death”.
L has another visitor, this time, a girl. Her name is Maki (Mayuko Fukuda) and she tells L that her father had asked her to deliver something to Watari before he died a horrible death. As L realizes that the item brought in by the girl is indeed the “God of Death” in question, pursuers are closing in. In order to protect the 2 children, L has to take physical action. Physical? Yes, the realm that L is not known to operate nor excel in!My comments:
If you are a fan of L from the death note series, this is a must watch show. If you hadn't had much interest in the death note series, but thinks that the character L is amusing, different and sometimes weird. Then this show is a show for you. As the title shows, L is the main focus of the story. Although the English title is "L change the WorLd", If i am not mistaken the Japanese version is L and the last 23 days. Which i find the Japanese title more suiting to the show. As Death Note is a movie based on the famous manga, L change the WorLd is based on the last 23 days of L from Death Note 2 : The Last Name. This allowed the director and scriptwriter unlock huge amount of creativity without changing the main story, as long as its within 23 days.. and 23 days is a long time..
Movie rating= Worth the watch, more if you like the character L
