Netflix has issued a formal apology regarding the American adaptation of popular manga and anime series, Death Note. They are blaming the dead-on-arrival remake for an error made during production.
“During development, director Adam Wingard mistakenly wrote out all the best parts about the anime in a spare Death Note notebook on set, thus killing everything that made it great. The tense cat-and-mouse interplay, the playful banter, the likable qualities of the characters – all cut short before the camera could roll. We proceeded with production anyway, but – well, you saw what came of it.”
Netflix promised to utilize the Death Note more responsibly in the future. The next plan is to use it on everyone responsible for the lifeless adaptation of Ghost in the Shell.
