A wild and untamed thing

Also, I really didn't care for the women in this one - someone needs to send women's lib over to Japan.

Uh oh. That doesn't sound good. The thing with Misa Misa is the part I find most disturbing, I think. Also, Ray Pendbar is a tool in the anime. I think Light does tend to use women...probably part of his god complex.

I still want to see it but I know they can't possibly cram 37 episodes of anime into two movies. I still heartily recommend watching it though. I'm sure the ultimate fates are the same but it's so much more fleshed out (and there's such a slashy scene between L and Light in one of them...I think it's ep 24....*dies*). And there's a teeny little thing after the credits of the last ep that I like a lot.

Yeah, Rem is cool. We like Rem. I think her relationship with Misa Misa is an interesting contrast to Light's relationship with Ryuk.

Rem is female? The voice was male in the movie and the character looked male. Anyway, yes I'd definitely get the movie if you're into the anime. The first part was great.

Yep, she's a girl as far as I know. Boo for them making her male. She definitly seems feminine in the anime.

*blinks* Ok, I just read a summary of the second movie. Wow they changed a lot. L ends up a bit differently in the manga/anime for sure. Where did you manage to find it? Amazon only has the first movie as coming out in Sept I think and no word on the second other than the Japanese import which is region 3.

My daughter had a friend in her Japanese class who had them in Japanese with subtitles. Didn't know they were a rare item. LOL.
