Forget manga characters and actresses, this was the real thing.
Tomomi brought more than mere costume could convey. Star quality, of the kind that could never be bought nor faked, wrapped around Death Note's own starlet.
A Japanese idol worthy of Misa Misa's own public appeal. Dressed as Misa. Standing next to Kira.
Hayato Kakizawa - one of two actors playing Light Yagami - was on hand to meet and greet at the Singapore convention, which ran from December 5th-7th 2014.
He might be Kira personified, yet even that couldn't make him the star attraction for many in the AFA2014 convention crowd. All eyes there were upon his companion.
HoriPro pulled a blinder when it came to publicity for Death Note's first theatrical outing. The ace up its sleeve was Japanese pop idol Tomomi Kasai, erstwhile member of mega selling hit girl group AKB48. While nothing personally to do with the staging of Death Note the Musical, the singer was brought in to make certain that everyone's attention was drawn in that direction.
And while she did it, Tomomi Kasai cosplayed Misa Amane.

Fortunately, Unicorn (@BYS0007 on Twitter) was there to witness the phenomena and take fabulous photographs for prosperity. Then graciously allowed Death Note News to feature them here for the enjoyment of all our readers. What can I say? Enjoy!
