135 min


"Anyone whose name

is written in this notebook shall die."

A Death Note is the reaper's tool

to control mortals' life spans.

Years ago a man called Kira used one,

causing genocide in the name of justice.

Delighted by Kira's act,

King Death gave reapers an order.

"Find a human to succeed Kira.

Give that human a Death Note."

"How to use the Death Note."

"Anyone whose name

is written in this notebook shall die."

Bend your arm.

How do you feel?


Vassily, come on.

You'll be fine.

Let me die.


End this for me, Doctor.

I want to die.

"Rest in peace, Vassily Nikitovic."


Can you hear me?

It can't be...

It's impossible...

"How to use the Death Note."

"Anyone whose name

is written in this notebook shall die."

"But it's only effective

when the target's face is visualized."

"Write a cause of death

and modify the victim's prior behavior."

"Unless specified,

the target will die of a heart attack."

A series of puzzling deaths

is occurring in Russia and Europe

over the past several months,

and show no sign of abating,

the victims all shares his suicidal tendency

Criminals dead!

It echoes the Kira case 10 years ago.

Criminal suspects all over the world

are dying mysteriously.

A new task force suggests that

the Kira killer is back.

I'm Captain Sugawara.

As of today you're

on the Death Note Task Force.

We'll continue our Death Note investigation.

The ICPO is working on a lead.

One theory is that the new Kira killer is

the cyber-terrorist

who targets states sponsoring terrorism.

Interpol confirms this possibility.

We, the Interpol Executive Committee,

ask an investigator to join Japan's Death Note

Task Force to solve the new Kira homicide.

His called name is Ryusaki,

and he is successor to L,

the international renowned private detective

I am


I control the lives and deaths of all humans.

We are connected by blood and my intentions.

I appoint you.

Get the Death Note.

Live as Kira.

The Note is awesome!

What else, Beppo?

Watch me do better than Kira.

Code 3. Multiple casualties in Shibuya streets.

The Death Note Task Force was sent.

This is K141, 143 and 145.

En route to the crime scene.

Casualties line the street.

It's a rampage killing.

Excuse me.

Show me.

This is totally random.

The death toll's climbing.

It's the reaper's eyes! Hide your face.

Check it out.


A suspect was seen on surveillance camera.

160 cm, female, hoodie.

Nanase, stay behind!


Tailing a female wearing a hood in Zone 4.

At the East exit.

I'm also on a female in a hoodie.

In pursuit.

The death toll stands at 16.

Be cautious.

East exit.

I lost track of the suspect.

Mishima, do you copy?

Out of the way!

Damn it!

Another victim in Sakashita.

I'm on my way.

Are you OK?

Oh my God!

Murder! A murderer!

Suspect spotted. She has a Note.

"Akira Okawa"

A murderer!

Is it gas?




I'm awesome, huh, Beppo?

Evacuate now!

Get out of here!


We're not authorized to shoot!


Move it!

Let me through!

"Sakura Aoi, heart attack, 7:50PM, December 10"

Why did you shoot her, Ryuzaki?

To stop the casualties.

I'm above the law.

We're not authorized to kill!

It was a tranquilizer dart!

A dart...


Forensics say she died of heart failure.

- Heart failure?

- Told you it wasn't me!

You're jumpy, Mishima.

Surveillance cameras were hacked.

There are others who have Death Notes.

Let's begin.

The suspect Sakura Aoi,

20 was of no fixed address.

I speculate she had reaper's eyes.

We know from Misa Amane

who had a Death Note 10 years ago

that those with reaper's eyes

can identify people.

Was Sakura Aoi the new Kira?

I'm afraid not.

The new Kira imitates

Light Yagami, the original Kira.

He used the Death Note to persecute

felons all over the world.

It reduced crime by 70%.

Kira followers worship him as God.

Some god!

The new Kira also targets felons,

not innocent people.

Sakura Aoi is opposite to Kira.

What a worn notebook!

This is my Death Note notebook.

He's a Death Note fanboy.

- I'm not!

- Fanboy?

You can ask him anything about Death Note.

It's handy.

Just one notebook

caused so many deaths!


It's not just a notebook.

It belongs to a reaper.

To humans it's a lethal weapon.

We can learn from...

Don't touch it!

What's your name?


What's that?

Touch .

Touch a Death Note and you can see its reaper.

- Is it here?

- Yeah, brace yourself.

Come on.

Hold on.

Beppo, make a cute face.

Come on, guys.

Come on.

I haven't seen one for 10 years...


I have a question.

What is it?

How many Death Notes are in our world?


One is lethal enough!

Will they increase?

Only 6 Death Notes are

allowed in the human world.

Ryuzaki is chatting with a reaper!

He's Interpol's go-to guy. And the next L.


L stopped Kira 10 years ago.

He has a successor?

L stored his DNA while he was alive.

I'm the result.

Your nemesis. Say hi to a world-class P.I.

What do you want?

That's for you to find out.



What if there was a 7th Death Note?

Any Death Note after the 6th won't work.

Except the Death Notes that the reapers have.

I didn't know that...

How many Death Note rules are there?

Even reapers don't know that.

The suspected killer

was Sakura Aoi who had a Death Note.

It wasn't Ryuzaki who killed her.
