DEATH NOTE: RE-LIGHT 2: L’s Successors DVD Review

DEATH NOTE: RE-LIGHT 2: L’s Successors DVD Review

Synopsis: Four years have passed since Light claimed his victory at L’s grave. Light has joined the National Police Agency and taken on the identity of the “new L.” Kira’s judgments of the citizens of the world have intensified, and many nations have come to accept Kira, either from fear or adulation. Near, L’s successor, must ponder the question of how L was defeated if he is to succeed where his famed predecessor failed. At the headquarters of the anti-Kira organization the SPK, he proclaims that the new L is none other than Kira and calls upon the Japanese task force to declare war on Light. 

Review: Death Note has become a very popular animated series in the United States.  They even released the live action Death Note movie into theaters last year!   Death Note has been a force in Japan for some time and now its leaked its way into the US.

This Death Note Re-Light 2 series is all 37 episodes of the anime series condensed into two DVD sets.  This one is only 90 minutes long.  This is really a recipe for disaster for serious fans of the show.  Its not as bad as a lot of reviews have stated.  Basically it opens with new footage of L explaining some of the story.  A lot of characters and situations are cut out completely for time and there is a new ending put on it, as well.

Honestly, this is a good release for fans to check out.  Its a nice overview, especially if you already know the series very well and don’t need to go over every single detail, but want to watch the series again.   Its a great DVD release.
