    The show will begin July 5th, and be available for legal streaming on Crunchyroll.

    I find the recent amount of Death Note related stuff pretty interested. There's the musical going on in Japan and Korea, and they're still a tiny bit of hope for an American film adaptation. This new TV series is no exception either.

    They're really trying to promote it being a "new story", especially with the addition of Near so early on in the series (it seems). I feel that there are going to be parallels between this and the anime for the first three episodes, simply to establish the rules of this world, and then try to go off on their own. I'm pretty interested to see what they can come up with.

    Sounds Interesting. Both the anime and manga were good with interesting plot. I am quite curious to see how the TV series will turn out. Also since Near is getting introduced earlier I guess that we might get to find out a bit more about his character.

    Still not a fan about L wearing a button down shirt, but it's really just a nitpick in the grand scheme of things I guess.
