‘Death Note’ Live-Action Series to Stream Internationally

The U.S. streaming site Crunchyroll will simulcast the new live-action “Death Note” television series for international audiences. Or at least those with a Crunchyroll membership.

Based on the bestselling manga by Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata, the drama kicks off Wednesday, July 8, at 7:30 p.m. PT, with a 90-minute episode.

Debuting in 2003, “Death Note” centers on Light Yagami, a high school student who discovers a supernatural notebook dropped by a rogue Shinigami (death god) that enables him to kill any human whose name is written in its pages. Light set outs to cleanse the world of evil, but as criminals beginning dropping like flies, authorities turn to the genius detective L to track down the killer.

Crunchyroll notes that Japan’s Nihon TV/Nippon TV has posted a synopsis for the first episode that indicate some changes to the setting and characters.

“Death Note” previously inspired a hit TV anime and a series of live-action films.
