That's Science Fiction presents: Death Note anime

This group meets on the first Tuesday of each month to view SF and other genre related films.

Death Note (2006, anime):

Outside the grounds of his high school, Light Yagami discovers a notebook that claims to be able to kill anyone whose name and face is known to its owner. He initially dismisses the so-called "Death Note" as a hoax, but, after testing its powers, he discovers that these claims are indeed real.

What Light doesn't know is that the original owner, a shinigami (death demon) named Ryuk, was bored in his own dimension and decided to play a game in the human world. He approaches Light and explains that the notebook now belongs to him. Since Light is the new owner, he is the only one who can see and interact with Ryuk. The shinigami also says that when Light's time to die comes, Ryuk will be the one to write down his name in his book. Ryuk's game, Ryuk's rules.

Light decides to use the Death Note's power to rid the world of evil and become the God of a new, peaceful world.

But we all know what happens when man plays at being god...

We will air episode 1, Rebirth and follow that with documentary extras on the making of Death Note and other behind the scenes details. If time allows we watch a few more episodes.

Dining follows the movie.
