In Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata's original supernatural suspense manga, a teenager named Light finds a notebook with which he can put people to death by writing their names. He begins a self-anointed crusade against the criminals of the world, and a cat-and-mouse game begins with the authorities and one idiosyncratic genius detective.
The live-action series will feature an original story not told in the anime or movies. The main cast of the new live-action version, which differs from the previous live-action adaptations, includes
Kento Yamazaki (Kyo, Koi wo Hajimemasu's Nishiki, Another's Koichi) as L, Masataka Kubota (live-action Rurouni Kenshin's Akira, Limit's Wataru, Kanojo wa Uso o Ai Shisugiteru's Shinya) as Light Yagami, and Mio Yuuki (live-action Assassination Classroom's Yukiko, As The Gods Will's Shoko) as Nea.
