What the hell was that.
the main characters have these big strange angel/demon things that follow them around...but then theres this very annoying chick in a lot episodes which is usually when I change the channel
What is going on in this scene, then?
The main character's "death angel" really likes apples. He considers them a treat.
More than a treat. He actually becomes physically addicted to them, and goes into weird convulsions without them.
Why apples? Because Japan is drunk on biblical symbolism.
Baldr im pretty sure the "angel" is all CG...pretty impressive too
Klint, I wasn't referring to the CGI character, but the real people they use for the Light and L characters. They're both frizzy-haired, skinny-arm guys, with pale completions, and giant eyes.
When the US decides to do comic book adaptations, they ask, "Can we find a person who would look like that hero, if they were real human being." In Japan, they ask, "Can we find someone that actually looks like they belong in a comic book."
j lzrd / swift idiot
Although, I have to ask; does Ryuk end up doing handstands and twisting his body up like a pretzal in the movie adaptation? :D

This is from one of the two movies. The movies are pretty damn impressive. In any case, the movies cut out a lot of unnecesarry bullshit and wrap up the story in two films.

Man, if I had my own pet psychopomp, I'd be nicer to him. He can kill me! It's his job!

Christian allegory is used in the East the same way that Eastern spirituality is used in the West. Haphazardly, yet hilarious.

There is little doubt in my mind that he said that just to get that exact reaction.
