There is a hype on this unnecessary sequel?

Besides the fact that Death Note has been literally force fucked for more adaptations, I just have some random question. You know how in anime, a lot of characters have unnatural hair colors? Well if a studio is making a live action version, why do they not feel it is necessary to make the actor/actress playing said characters dye their hair? Like does this not bother anybody else? Misa Amane is Blonde yet they give her black hair. Do you know how annoying it was watching Higurashi Live Action with the Sonozaki Twins, Satako and Rika with natural hair colors? I don't know why this bothers me so much. If your going to portray a character, portray them correctly at least.

Or with the "Attack on Titan" movie, where not only did Armin not have blond hair, he didn't even have the same haircut as he did in the manga.

Honestly, I'm a little more optimistic about this movie. I always felt like the story of "Death Note" could expand. I've always been curious about how other people would use the Death Note. It's kind of like with "The Crow" franchise, where instead of continuing the story of Eric Draven, they'd have sequels and side-stories centering around a different person resurrected by the Crow. I feel like it works because of the possibilities.

Another note (no pun intended), I like how Ryuk looks in this one. The effects are a lot better than they were ten years ago.

How does the character, Sakura Aoi being "the most terrible Death Note user ever, an indiscriminate murderer," make her "the complete opposite of Light Yagami?"

That aside, what's interesting about these movies is that they're not more interesting. I just can't wrap my head around doing semi-faithful adaptations. Either do a spot-on retelling of the story, or do something completely different with the universe. This series is so ripe with mythology/possibilities it's unbelievable they've stuck with the same story this whole time.

Considering the popularity of the original, how has Madhouse not produced multiple anime based in the Death Note universe? Why not follow a different character in a new series, and leave Light where he is? His story is over, let's see someone else's. Also, expand on the Shinigami realm. We get a taste of their crazy, diverse-looking universe, filled with interesting characters, and they just leave it at that. It's an amazing, broad concept and they're doing so little with it.

Maybe because Sakura Aoi kills for fun and wants to destroy the world while Light wants to create a new world?
