Former AKB48 Member Joins 2016 Death Note Film

The upcoming 2016 Death Note film features six separate Death Notes, and one of them will belong to former AKB48 member Rina Kawaei. The official website posted a picture of Kawaei in costume, describing her as an “indiscriminate murderer” who is the “most terrible Death Note user.”

Kawaei joins the previously-revealed cast members, which include Sōsuke Ikematsu as L’s successor Ryūzaki, Masahiro Higashide as Death Note investigator Tsukuru Mishima, and Masaki Suda as Kira-worshipping cyber-terrorist Yūgi Shion.

Here’s how the latest addition looks in costume:
