With the upcoming Death Note: Light Up the NEW World premiering in October, the movie is gearing up to promote itself with the help of cosplayers. In fact, the movie has teamed up with part-time job search database Baito Is An, to look for Cosplayers. These hired cosplayers will dress up as the Shinigami, Ryuk, to help with the movie’s PR campaign.


To help promote the movie, Ryuk cosplayers will be needed in four different locations, namely Sapporo on 6th October, Fukuoka on 10th October, Nagoya on 12th October, and finally, Tokyo on 20th October.

Cosplayers who are accepted will earn up to 60,000 yen, and their travel expenses will be covered. And did we mention that they can also eat all the apples they can get?! A pretty sweet deal!

Those who are interested must apply before 11:59 pm on 25th September.  To apply, applicants should follow @weban on Twitter, retweet the below tweet, and fill out this application form (Japanese only)
