I agree with this, but where the movies are an AU, I figured it was an AU where L was Japanese and more conventionally attractive and adapted to societal norms because it worked better for the story being told.
Canonically, L is a generally unattractive grey-skinned bug-eyed mostly white man (I don’t mean to imply that his being white and his being unattractive are related in case it is read that way) who no one would feel comfortable around in real life, and while I did love how this movie mixed it up, I still want to see a more accurate “official” live-action L.
I think this fits your image of the perfect live-action L, then.
Hi, I'm Robby, and I'm 23. I like lots of things. You'll probably be able to tell what things I like because I'll probably post and/or reblog things about them. I like going to anime conventions and hanging out with my friends. (Wait, really? I've had this thing for almost a year, and I am just now realizing how dumb it is to say that I like hanging out with my friends? Who the hell doesn't like doing that?) Anyway, I'm also going to be a bestselling author someday. I'll stop talking now.
