Right now, Zac Efron is over in Japan promoting his new movie 17 Again. In this interview with Elle Girl (lol manly), he talks about how he was like when he was 17 (as if it were so long ago) and casually claims that he likes manga. I dunno if he just dropped that as a “I’m in Japan, lemme be cultural” quip, but I have to say that I’m surprised that someone like him would give manga the time of day. Either it’s a sign of anime/manga breaking past its “geek” notoriety or one of his friends told him that half the internet thinks he looks like an animated character. Admittedly, he’s mostly just into popular Shonen Jump series, but maybe he’s just naming off the popular titles so non-weeaboos can follow his dialogue? And yes, Zac Efron is weeaboo. His little “Desu~ Note” comment solidifies that. Anyhow, I’m sure thousands of fans, male and female, either had one of two reactions to his love of Death Note: FUUUUUUUUUUUUUU or AIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIEEEEEEEEE. Personally, I’d love to see Zac take a crack at it. A Hollywood remake is going to be lulzy anyhow, so why not have someone who looks like an IRL clone of Light? And who knows, maybe Zac could break his campy musical stride with Death Note and finally get recognized for something dramatic.
