If you haven’t heard about it yet, Netflix is currently working on a live-action adaptation of the anime super-hit Death Note. A lot of the cast has just been announced as well! As for me, I’m quite excited to see how this will turn out since I’m a huge fan of the series. I’d love to know what you guys think as well!

ANIME NEW SEASON RECOMMENDATIONS
The new Summer anime season is upon us! So much new anime! Endless possibilities! Not sure on which one to watch? Here are some suggestions our very own execs are looking forward to!
Jean: I’m especially expecting good animation and art. As for the story, it’s far darker than your typical Shonen as each character has a lot of depth and I’d say is the strongest point of the series. One thing I’m looking forward to is how they properly follow the main storyline in just 13 episodes, whereas the last anime adaption had 103 episodes and included too many fillers but was nice as comic relief.
Del: Returning to highschool after having already left quite a few years before is by no means a new concept. That said I’m interested to see how ReLIFE is going to turn out. Is there going to be some big realization that he can fix his life as a 27 year old? Or is “restarting” what will fix his life? Or it could all just be meaningless.
Phill: Finally after almost 20 years a sequel is finally here! If you’re into some of the best action packed dark fantasy out there, look forward to this. If you haven’t seen Berserkyet and want to catch up, I highly recommend watching the original series and the third movie!
Tales of Zestiria the X
Matt: I’ve been in love with the Tales series ever since I first played it, and Zestiria has been no exception. Great plot, great characters and animation from Ufotable and their famously huge budgets – what’s not to like?
That’s it for this month folks,
Thanks for reading!
