L: Change the World (also known as Death Note: L, Change the World or Death Note III), directed by Hideo Nakata, is a spin-off film and a sequel to the Death Note film series. The series is based on the manga Death Note by Tsugumi Ohba and illustrated by Takeshi Obata, but follows an original storyline. The film is set before the ending of Death Note II: The Last Name, which features the film version of L's death. The film was released in Japan on February 9, 2008, Hong Kong on February 7, 2008, Singapore on February 21, 2008, and the United Kingdom on December 29, 2008.

Two versions of the film were shown in the United States on April 29 and 30, 2009. The first version of the film shown was in Japanese with English subtitles and the second version shown was dubbed in English with the same voice actors from the English dubbed Death Note anime like the US release of its predecessors. The film was released on DVD in the US on August 18, 2009.

Plot

Kenichi Matsuyama reprises his role as L from the previous Death Note films. The film chronicles the final 23 days of L's life, as he solves one final case involving a bioterrorist group that aims to wipe out much of humanity with a virus with one hundred times the infection rate of Ebola. He takes a boy he names Near, the sole survivor of its use in a village in Thailand, and an elementary schooler named Maki Nikaido under his wing.[1]

Dr. Nikaido, a researcher, has received a sample of a deadly virus which destroyed a village in Thailand. His assistant, Dr. Kimiko Kujo who also goes by the initial of K, reveals herself to be the leader of the organization that created the virus. Dr. Nikaido, who has created an antidote, refuses to give it her. She kills him, convinced that his daughter Maki has the formula.

Maki runs away, eventually finding L's headquarters. But the group tracks Maki down, forcing L, accompanied by Maki and Near, to run away to a high-tech truck with the help of an FBI agent, Hideaki Suruga. L seeks the help of Nikaido's research partner to create a antidote. Using Near, L manages to acquire the antidote just as the terrorists are about to take an infected Maki to the US to spread the virus. L stops the plane and gives all the infected passengers, including the terrorist, the antidote. Maki then tries to kill Kujo for revenge, but L stops her. The film concludes with L leaving Near and giving him his "real name".

Shunji Fujimura also reprises his role as Watari, though the character dies early in the film as prior the events of The Last Name. The major characters of the main plot such as Light Yagami (Kira), Misa Amane, and Shinigami Ryuk all have brief cameos in the film.

Production

Hideo Nakata told The Daily Yomiuri that he wanted to reveal L's "human side," which had not been explored in the Death Note series.
Reception

As of March 5, 2008, there was a total of 2,200,000 for attendance, with a total of approximately 2,500,000,000 yen (approximately US$25 million) box office for this film.
Novel

The film was also adapted into a light novel with the same name, written by "M" and published in Japan on December 25, 2007. While the novel is similar to the film, there are many significant changes to the plot. (For example, Near is the same Near that appears in the manga, but not a Thai boy.) It also reveals more information about L and his past. Viz released it on October 20, 2009.
