Netflix’s big-budget American adaption of the popular Japanese manga Death Note is filming in metro Vancouver this summer. Anime series Death Note, written by Tsugumi Ohba and illustrated by Takeshi Obata, is about a young student Light who finds a supernatural notebook abandoned by a God (Shinigami Ryuk) 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 famous model Misa Amane seeks him out and becomes the second Kira to create a world “cleansed of evil”. A detective known as L tries to stop them.
