just curious about the differences people noticed from anime to live action...
obviously they changed the ending quite a lot. i think there were good things about both endings. i think it was important for the anime to continue after L's death but I preferred Chief Yagami to be alive to see his son caught.
I wonder why, just a small change but made me curious, they change Ray Penbar (FBI agent following Light)'s name to Raye Iwamatsu? Doesn't make any difference, just curious.
I prefer the way Naomi M (forgotten her name...Misora?), Raye Penbars fiancee was dealt with in the anime. The movie made her seem like a bit of a baddie I think.
Either way, I loved both the anime and the live action (slightly less, but still loved!).
