I wonder what it'll be? I'm a fan of the original manga!

I hope it's something new by Takeshi Obata and Tsugumi Ohba, not another adaptation in another media.

What I really want is more insight into L's character but I highly doubt that'll happen /: Either way anything would be better than the live action films right? Can't wait!!

I suppose I'm going to be the partypooper then, because I think DN had a perfectly round cycle and I'd be worried if they pulled out a new story or something like that. I don't doubt that Ohba can come up with something new and interesting within the same universe (maybe something like the pilot chapter), but if they're just trying to milk an old cash cow I'd rather they just leave it alone

Let's hope not as Near was a complete punk who was irrelevant to the story's ultimate ending (since someone has broached the death of L already, nothing really changes in the story after L dies). However, if he were to meet with the agonizing, graphic demise to which he is most certainly "entitled" and, given the ending of the original series, inexorably destined then I might approve.

Same here, except that I do doubt what this Ohba can do as Bakuman, especially the anime version, was abhorrent and if not for the irony-a mangaabout guys wanting to make an exceptional manga turning out to be quite ordinary-it would have been unwatchable. Perhaps that irony was destined, since Ohba ultimately flubbed the Death Note manga when he broke from the "moral ambiguity" near its end-essential for its "Supernatural Sherlock Holmes" schtick-by making no bones about Kira being a "villain" in his mind, something he later copped to. Mercifully the anime's director rectified this.

So as much as I want this to be good, I will not get my hopes up.

Spoiler tags aren't a requirement, but they could be considered a courtesy. So be courteous, or don't say anything. Or, you can ruin the surprise and be labeled a dick.

Some of you might find this hard to believe, but not everyone has time to catch up on everything in the world.

I agree with you for the most part but really? I'm pretty sure you shouldn't be reading the comments for the 10th anniversary of a series if you haven't seen it it in the first place and care about spoilers.

If you don't have the time to catch up on it then don't read news articles about it.

I greatly disagree with your statement. Some may still find it interesting to read the news about this for various reasons including sharing with friends who HAVE seen it. Reading other people's theories is part of that.

I also wanted to add that this did not appear in my FEED for some reason. Very strange.

That's great news!

In the meanwhile I'll stock up some potato chips, so I'll be prepared when the times comes. Wink
