L: Change the World

My Last Hurrah?

In the last quarter of 2006, the twin combo movies of Death Note and Death Note: The Last Name made quite an impact in Asia, with its story dwelling on power to the common man to either do "good", or tote the ambiguous line proving whether absolute power corrupts absolutely.

Along the way, the character of L proved to be immensely popular, but more so for the actor playing him, Ken'ichi Matsuyama, who solidified his position as a teenage heartthrob (you can hear the squeals each time he sucks on a lollipop). And even though the inevitable happened at the end of the second installment, what's there to stop a good man from being featured in a movie to milk what's worth from whatever is left?
