Storyline

The movie begins with a short narration by the late L who breaks the fourth wall by reviewing what had happened in the previous Relight movie. The very next scene depicts the familiar scene of Near and Mello learning of L's death and Mello proclaiming his emancipation, followed by a scene four years later where Near is just about to leave the Wammy's House. This scene contains a flashback that partially adapted from the special Death Note One-Shot Special manga chapter, where L speaks, without a voice scrambler, to the children of the orphanage before he investigates the Kira case.

L: There are many types of monsters in this world. Monsters who will not show themselves, and who cause trouble. Monsters who abduct children. Monsters who devour dreams. Monsters who suck blood. And monsters who always tell lies. Lying monsters are a real nuisance, they are much more conning than other monsters. They pose as humans even though they have no understanding of the human heart. They eat even though they've never experienced hunger. They study even though they have no interested in ...

Decent retelling of the second half of Death Note
28 January 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Honestly, I liked the second half of Death Note a lot more because there were more characters, and we see Light turn more and more evil. I think the only issue with the movie was the amount of content that needed to be scrapped for it to stay under 3 hours. Several plot elements like Mello being the main villain in the beginning, and almost dying in an explosion, giving him a burn that was left unexplained in the movie.

But let's switch gears and talk about what the movie got right. Several scenes were changed to have the plot make more sense in a smaller time, like Kiomi already knowing about Mikami, and having several of the SPK members killed.

Overall, the movie was not quite as good as the first re-light "Visions of a God" but I did enjoy "L's Successors", and I to anyone who wants to revisit the series.
