Yeah. I knew about that. I think what happened was we see a cult starts to form. I think the reason it was even there was in case the author wanted to make a sequel. I'm not 100% sure on this either though.
sigh I will not watch the movie. The whole description given by the director just shows what the he's focused on.http://www.slashfilm.com/death-note-tone/
I tried watching it, and kind of gave up. The story failed to captivate me within 3-5 episodes, and it was really difficult for me to take interest in it. I just found the characters confusing and underdeveloped.
