Fans of the first Death Note don’t have much longer to wait for its sequel, Death Note II: The Last Name (review), which picks up the events right after the first one and brings things to a long-overdue conclusion. Some official plot, if you will:
The story picks up with Light Yagami (Tatsuya Fujiwara) joining the investigation team in pursuit of the serial killer known as ‘Kira’. While L (Kenichi Matsuyama) still strongly suspects that Light is ‘Kira’, Light continues to seek out the real name of L so that he can kill him with his Death Note. Making things even more unpredictable are the ‘Eyes of Death’ that the second Kira possesses, enabling the owner to know the true identity and lifespan of any person. Light Yagami soon learns the identity of the other Kira and wants to join forces to get rid of L. Will L be able to catch ‘Kira’ before he gets killed? Who will be the last name written in the Death Note?
Viz Media announced that the DVD is hitting on February 10, 2009, and will come with both English dubbed (evil) and original Japanese language (good) soundtracks. There will be a “making of” featurette and the original Japanese trailer, but that’s about it for extras unfortunately.
Fans can hit up the official Viz Media site to take a couple of surveys and be entered to win one of two giveaway promotions.
