Light manages to get himself appointed to the team investigating the identity of Kira. He also gains an ally when pigtailed TV cooking show host Misa Amane (Erika Toda) finds her own Death Note. She's completely smitten with Kira, and having lost her own family to a hideous crime, she's eager to join in his cause. Unlike Light, Misa is even willing to trade half of her remaining lifetime to her Death Note's demon owner, Rem (voiced by Peter), for the power to see the names of others, so that she can essentially kill anyone she can see. Once he learns the identity of this second "Kira," Light is naturally eager for her to find out L's real name, so that he can be killed before he captures Light. Misa is more interested in being Light's girlfriend. L, perhaps unsurprisingly with his diet, turns out to be Misa's biggest fan, and manages to temporarily foil Light's efforts to determine his true name. As the authorities close in, taking both Light and Misa into custody (over the objections of Light's father [Takeshi Kaga]) and putting them under constant observation, Light is forced to come up with and extremely clever plan to avoid being captured, even if it means giving up the Death Note. Death Note: The Last Name had its New York premiere at Subway Cinema's 2007 New York Asian Film Festival with director Kaneko in attendance.
