The sequel to the phenomenal hit movie Death Note (directed by renowned filmmaker Shusuke Kaneko), Death Note II: The Last Name concludes the titanic battle between the two geniuses L and Light.
Light Yagami has joined the investigation team in pursuit of the serial killer known as “Kira.”  While L strongly suspects Light is “Kira,” Light continues to seek out L’s real name so he can kill him using the Death Note.  Things get more unpredictable with the appearance of a second “Kira” who possesses the “Eyes of the Death God,” which enable the owner to see the true identity and life span of any person.
Light soon learns the identity of the second “Kira” and wants to join forces to get rid of L.  Will L be able to unmask “Kira” before he gets killed?  Which name will be the last written in the Death Note?  [Synopsis © VIZ Pictures] (140 min.  Japanese with English subtitles)
