    Default Death Note to Return with One-Shot

The announcement was made in the current issue of Weekly Shonen Jump, which was released on Monday. The 44-page story with color insert will describe an event after the end of the original series specifically, the case of a new Kira. The return of the Death Note manga will mark the February 9 opening of L change the WorLd, the spinoff based on the two Death Note live-action films. The original run of the manga lasted from December of 2003 to May of 2006 in Japan, and Viz Media has released all twelve volumes in North America.

    I saw that too on MU. I'm not sure whether to be hopeful or disgusted by the announcement. I think more Death Note would be cool, whatever the form it is in. But, the release's relation to the live-action films makes me a little suspicious it will turn out like that half chapter in Bleach that ended up being pure promotion for the movie.

    ^ I dont think the two will have much to do with eachother, the live action movie is something about L isnt it? That would mean it would have to take place before or durring death-note. The oneshot has to do with after the manga ends. Unless they're talking about Near in the live action movie? idk i'm not really too informed on the subject...

    Is it just a coincidence, or does he look a good bit older?
