She should've gone blond. But the live-action movie Misa didn't go blond, either.

Near looks hilariously awful. Bad wig, too old and obviously a girl. Laughing

I think Near is supposed to be female in this adaption, hence why he is being played by a girl.

I didn't know Misa worked at a host club in her spare time. Rolling Eyes

drama adaptations of manga/anime are hit or misses (the future diary one was terrible) so we'll have to see

I like how the title can be misinterpreted as Misa being Light's father with the picture being quite obviously a woman.

Wow, the Death Note franchise is not only still active but it actually gets a live-action show? And of course there is the musical as well. Hmm. It must have a high-powered producer if it can still get so much work after all these years.

Misa's actress is well cast. She isn't blonde, sure, but I reckon she still nails the look. The character of Misa was always less about her appearance and more about being batcrap insane.

Still nothing on Ryuk...

Does anyone know how to watch Japanese Dramas outside of Japan?
Anime series get streamed, but what about dramas?
