Well Testuo Araki is good director,I mean it is not that he writes his stuff and he was involved with Hiroyuki Yoshino(he really had no chance).
Yasuko Kobayashi on the other hand is experienced and was involved in some really good stuff I think she can make some good script Kyoji Asano also had some really interesting designs.
But the fact that they announced Yasuko Kobayashi only as in charge of series composition makes me think that this an adaptation of manga.

The title is misleading, him directing the death note anime has very little to do with why it was good, it was the source material. Look what happened when he did an original anime (Guilty Crown) which could have been awesome but then turned out... well how it was.

To be completely fair to him, he didn't exactly have the most competent writer to work with either...

This essentially sums up why I will be treating this with extreme caution.

This is true, but as director he really should have tried to do something about that before it became the anime optimisation of style over substance.

As someone who read the death note manga before watching the anime I really think that while the manga is indeed a great source material I preffer the anime notably because of how it's directed,the storyboarding wasn't just a copy and paste of the manga,the story was the same but visually it was told in a different way.
Also it had great pacing with a focus on the chapters that needed it and it went by quickly on the chapters that didn't (especially later in the series).

The show would have been good no matter who did it but I don't believe it'd have been that good with just any director.
