Death Note (R2) in July
4Digital Media have announced the UK Region 2 DVD release of Death Note on 28th July 2008 priced at £19.99. Directed by Shusuke Kaneko, the live-action film version of Death Note is based on the hit supernatural action mystery manga written by Tsugumi Ohba and illustrated by Takeshi Obata.
The film follows the manga story of Light Yagami, who is a brilliant but bored student with great prospects. Life changes dramtically when he finds the Death Note, a notebook dropped by a rogue Shinigami death god named Ryuk that gives the user the ability to kill anyone by simply writing a name in the Death Note while thinking of that person’s face.
The 2-Disc Limited Edition DVD includes a 24 page book with silver foiled logo and slipcase and extras: theatrical trailer, making of ‘Death Note’, production diary video, ‘Death Note’ press conference and original Japanese trailers and image gallery.
