Written by Tsugumi Ohba and illustrated by Takeshi Obata, the Japanese Death Note is about a young student Light who finds a supernatural notebook abandoned by the God of Death that allows him to kill people by writing their names in it. Light decides to use it as a force of good by compiling a list of evil people and so he becomes known as Kira, the Japanese word for Killer. A young woman seeks him out and becomes the second Kira to create a world “cleansed of evil”. A detective known as L tries to stop them.

Nat Wolff (The Fault in Our Stars) is Light Turner and Margaret Qualley (The Leftovers) is Mia Sutton in the set-in-Seattle live-action movie.
