Death Note - Ica ~ the World though my Glasses
Death Note
After the musical I wanted to check the new remakes.
There is a jdrama from 2015 with 11 episodes where Light's strange interpretation of justice comes after her mothers murder was not punished due to law regulations and agreement of police and prosecution. At first he feels the crimes one by one, with the appearence of the name Kira he can separate himself from the ideal of Kira, but then slowly comes into the role. This might be the only remake that I saw where Light isn't as pathetic in his death. The series strangely made me remember Breaking Bad, and Walter's character-transformation.
Another great part: Matsushige Yukata plays Light's father.

Then I realized there is also a 2016 remake... or does that count as sequel? Heregoal of Yuki Shien, a cyber-terrorist introduced in the first episode is to make Kira's legend revive again. Two other characters, Ryuzaki, L's true successor and Tsukuru Mishima, leader of the Death Note Task Force are also showed.
Goal of the 3-episode series is to make a bridge between the happenings of the previous films and the Death Note: Light Up the NEW World movie (that I couldn't put my hands on yet).

What? Wait, what? Death Note has a remake? Seriously?
Is Death Note already so old that we get a remake? O______O

Well, Sailor Moon got the remake after 25 (actually 26) years; Arslan Senki after 24; Ushio to Tora after 23, Arashi no Yoru Ni after just 7...
By Death Note it looks more like remakes didn't stop since the start of the manga. I didn't list those, but between 2006 and 2015 there were lots of novels and games. It looks like they harvest as long as there is a need for it.
