Death Note = <3. Math =/= <3.

I watched the live action Death Note movie for the first time, since I saw it in theatres in Japan. But with subtitles this time, hurray for fansubbing ^o^! There were a few things I missed and generally didn't understand without the subtitles at the theatre, but I get it now. And I still love the hell out of that movie. SO GOOD. Sexy/Psychotic Light (although I pretended he wore pleather pants, and made the squeaky sound effects, which got old for Noa who was watching it with me after awhile XD; ), pretty L, and OMG Sota as Matsuda! Did anyone other than me notice that they made Light even more evil than in the manga XDD;? That was horrible, but it's still one of my favorite movies XD;.

Math is once again becoming like a game to me this semester-- not because it's easy, because it's STUPIDLY HARD! but because I'm vaguely empowered by the attempt to pick up as many points as possible. I kicked those quizzes to the curb, although it took me forever to learn how to use the calculator to do them. You like... punch in 2nd + STAT, and then type in the x and y things, and hit graph, and then hit CALC, and then type in the LinR thing which looks like (xSTAT, ySTAT, y1), and then it spits out a LinReg equation thingy, and then you hit graph again, and go to the y=? screen, and it tells you the equationsomethingsomething. OMG, WHY DID I DO ALL THAT, AGAIN? I hate graphing calculators... although they're fun for plotting points and drawing pictures on the graph XD;. *gets bored sometimes, and graphs pictures of kitties during class* I could've screamed though, because my teacher managed to insert his snide comment about his stupid TI-89 calculator into the online notes he made for the TI-86 calculator. At some random step, it was all "too bad you didn't get the silver TI-89, like I'd told you." *STAB!* It's getting reaaaally annoying now, teach ^^;. Maybe I'll write him a tasteful e-mail of what I think of his calculator... after the semester. And scratch the tasteful part. *nodnod*

Yaaaay for rambly'ness, which is just about all I'm capable of after too much math homework, and seeing pretty Death Note actors. *THE END!*

Was it Death Note: The Last Name or the first movie? The first time I watched the 1st one, I got stuck with the lousiest subtitles ever known to man. I mean, one would expect a little literal translation here and there but mixing Bahasa Malaysia, English and really, really bad literal translation? =___= Only caught the storyline through fangirl japanese and understanding of basic human gestures and stuff.

And I'm pretty sure I've never seen a graphing calculator now, from your description of it, OTL *LOSES*

I watched the first one with subtitles. I have yet to see the second Death Note movie at all, but I'm so watching it as soon as someone subtitles it ^.^V.

The subtitles on the one I watched was really good. Go here if you want to download the same version I did. It's all English subtitles, I promise XD;.

NO! YOU DON'T LOSE! STAY AS FAR AWAY FROM GRAPHING CALCULATORS AS YOU CAN! NEVER GROW UP! They're so confusing, I swear ^^;.

I probably didn't notice because I was busy yelling "OMG THAT SO DIDN'T HAPPEN IN THE MANGA OMG WHY IS THIS HAPPENING OMG WHAT'S WITH THE DONUTS AND WHUT LIGHT'S GIRLFRIEND???"

After the semester, tell his calculator to burn in hell. BURN DAMNIT BURN PEOPLE DON'T HAVE MONEY TO WASTE ON SOME STUPID SILVER EDITION CALCULATOR.

Ahem. Your teacher is annoying. Can't you report him. X3 Here, see partially naked Sota's torso as a distraction.

I knew the movie would probably be a lot different than the manga, because the manga is so intricate, that a lot would have to be hacked out to make it manageable for audiences to watch. So I was prepared for random changes, and I ended up liking them ^^. It's like the same story, branched off in two different directions, but both are still are really interesting anyway. I suppose we can't exactly expect the movie makers to create 12 Death Note movies, so I'll accept the cut-down version XD;.

And Light did have a girlfriend! Kind of! That really smart girl in his high school that he went on the bus with-- she gets important again in the manga, which is probably why they chose to stick Light with a girlfriend in the movie. And you can't say you didn't enjoy L eating 5 doughnuts on a stick, and sharing some with the Iron Chef XD;. I giggle insanely everytime I see that scene XDD. *<3's L*

YEAH! EFF YOU AND YOUR CALCULATOR, TEACHER MAN! I'm making peace with him in my mind... as long as I pass the class ^^;. I'M DOING MY BEST! But why oh why do graphing calculators have to be so difficult o.O;??? Do you have to use one for your math classes?

Mmmmmm, partially naked Sota's torso... it makes me want to watch my creepy DVD's of him XD;.

I know i shouldn't have been too surprised by the changes, because heck lots of movies have changes! Musicals too! Sorta. But I was still.. surprised. XD AND I WANT 12 DEATH NOTE MOVIES O.O Think of all the money they'd make... after using all that money to make the movies. Um. XD

I thought he randomly called up a bunch of girls and picked the first that said yes. XD But ooh she gets important again? *can't wait for the next volume, which might be out but hasn't been to the bookstore to check yet* And L... just pwned me. You know he did. XD

I used one before... but it was a long time ago. XD I don't think I even remember how to use them anymore.

It's not creepy! Not really. Just vaguely mortifying. Or... something.

But imagine if they made 12 Death Note movies... they'd have the same problem they're having for the Harry Potter movies XD;. The L and Light actors would be like 40 or something before they all got finished XD.
