Death Note Light up the NEW world

This week it was confirmed that Namie Amuro is providing the theme and insert songs for the upcoming live-action Death Note Light up the NEW world movie which coined as a ‘forbidden sequel’ to the Death Note and Death Note: The Last Name movies. It is not a sequel to the original manga or the 2015 live-action TV drama.

In the original manga by Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata, which ran from 2003 to 2006, a teen student named Light finds a notebook on the ground. Soon he finds out that he can kill people by writing their names in it. In a self-justified crusade, he starts killing criminals all over the world with his newfound power and gets involved in a cat-and-mouse game with the authorities and an ingenious detective named L.

The new movie, however, will play off in the present day, ten years after the events of the first two movies, where there are new characters that ‘inherited the DNA of Light Yagami and L’ and they will take part in a battle over six Death Notes on earth. In the original manga it was mentioned that up to six Death Notes and Shinigami can exist in our world, something not mentioned in the anime, live-action series, live-action movies and stage play! But now in the new movie, this becomes an important part of the plot.

Directing the movie is Shinsuke Sato (GANTZ, Library Wars) and Warner Brothers Japan will distribute it from October 29, 2016. The cast includes Masaki Suda (live-action Assassination Classroom), Sousuke Ikematsu (The Last Samurai), Masahiro Higashide (live-action Parasyte), Rina Kawaei (Azumi: Bakumatsu-hen stage play), Mina Fujii, and reprising their roles from the previous Death Note movies, Erika Toda as Misa Amane and Shidou Nakamura as Ryuk.

The movie’s newest trailer introduces ‘Dear Diary’, the theme song of the movie. The movie, released on October 29, will be just in time for Halloween. Death Note Light up the NEW world trailer with theme song

Apple Pie

If you know your Death Note anime you know that the Shinigami Ryuk is an apple junkie. We share with you a Japanese apple pie recipe that may just make any shinigami’s mouth water! The dough in the tutorial video is made from scratch and here are the ingredients for the dough: 120-130g chilled flour, salt (measure to taste), 100g of butter and 50-60 ml ice water. The pie filling ingredients are 2 apples (about 300g), 100g sugar and 2 tablespoons of lemon juice. You can add cinnamon to the recipe but since a lot of people are not fond of the spice, the choice is optional. Japanese Apple Pie
