🍎DEATH NOTE 2017🍎

♬DEATH NOTE Series Makes Musical Tour♬



The manga series DEATH NOTE is popular worldwide!
Originally first published in 2003,
it later was made into an anime series,
video games, live-action movies,
TV dramas, and now in recent years, musicals!
International adaptions have been made as well.
In 2015 Korea held a DEATH NOTE musical using Korean cast
and within the last month, Netflix released an American version.

The American DEATH NOTE movie
has created some controversy and debate
mostly due to the cast and story being different from the original.
However, that's not what we're here to discuss.
The point is that DEATH NOTE
really has became an international phenomenon!!! 


Something for DEATH NOTE fans to get excited about though,
is the new 2017 DEATH NOTE THE MUSICAL

The plot to DEATH NOTE THE MUSICAL
is similar to the original manga series. 
For those who aren't too familiar, 
it's about a high school student name Light Yagami
 who receives a supernatural notebook from a Shinigami (death god) named Ryuk.
The notebook, called DEATH NOTE, 
grants its owner the ability to kill anyone whose name is written down.
The only thing is you have to know their full name and face,
or else it won't work.  
The series centers around Light's attempts to create
 and rule a world cleansed of evil by killing criminalsand becoming a "God" by using the DEATH NOTE.
Eventually an awkward yet brilliant detective known as L

along with Light's father who is also a detective,
tries to catch and arrest him.

It's really a cool story line!
