| Death Note New Generation: Watchable accompaniment to Light Up the New World
This three episode mini series is an accompaniment to the Light Up A New World movie, it provides backgrounds on the three main characters in the lead up to the film.

Ideally watched first these are nice little introductions but visually not in the same league as the film, they are more like webisodes.

They bring little new material to the franchise but are perfectly watchable all the same and bring some interesting balance to Yûki Shien especially.

The Good:

They go well with the movie

The Bad:

One is far far weaker than the other two

Things I Learnt From This Series:

These kind of accompaniments should perhaps become more common
