A romantic movie, an action movie, a comedy movie, you played all of them with a good performance. Not every one could be a professional like that. That the reason why I Love you so much :3

hell666sinki I never thought i would become so much obsessed with a Japanese actor; but i have to admit, Kenichi did such a great job as L that i was left awestruck. I also took a liking to Japanese language and am trying to catch up with the drama Zeni Geba.

Cat =] ~ * ~ Ken'ichi Matsuyama ~ * ~ A lot of people say that you should answer mails when you have the chance and I agree I suppose feedback is great but I also think if you have spare time you should rest and relax. It's always nice to after all =] I think you are a great guy and I love the films you've starred in thank you for giving me hours of enjoyable entertainment. I don't know whether you will ever read this but I wanted to write in case you do because you give the world your films and I wanted to thank you for that.

Tiffany Hello Kenichi,

I'm probably one of the younest here saying this (I'm 13) and personally I'm shy but ever since I saw Death Note and heard of L like 3 yrs ago, I fell in love but after that I wanted to see the Death Note films (I'm from the U.S.) and I watched it and noticed how much you personally look like L it was really adorable and then I saw L change the world....... OMG I just cried when I saw you as the character walking out on the end but I cried even more when I saw your interview and you saying that you were fond of kids in some way and that L was like a part of you..... plus I just what you think your ideal woman is and personally even though I dont know much about you because the media from Japan is barely brought here I think that your a really sweet loving person and that your ideal woman will find you and fall in love with you with an honest heart like you said.And if the rumors are true your going out with someone I hope you have a wonderful relationship with her, shes super lucky to have ever met you:-) and I´m soo happy to know that your b-day is nine days before mine, I´m born on the 14th:-) And theres three things I want to say before I log out.

1)Please dont let fame come into your head and become a crazy person that parties constantly and forgets who he or she is.Be humble,sweet and taske good care of yourself 2)Look at this website and see your comments,you have alot of girls that like you and reply back if your not busy,these girls would be soo happy if you did 3) I know this is what every girl says and it kind of gets annoying but if your not busy can you please reply back, I would seriously faint if you did, wel I hope I can see you in Japan in two yrs when I visit for my 15th birthday:-D well goodbye Kenichi and please stay your true sweet honest self lovely

Evra i dont really think he reads all the comments on this website. because there are so many and their are more websites made for ken'ichi matsuyama fans. im a huge fan of his but there a lot of fans (duh!), also, he is so kawaai! ^_^

Rittoru kenichi i know my message is just like every other fan but i take u as a romodle and as a great person. in ur movie death note the character L inspired me. because L didn't give up when he knew Light was kira. and that made me more comitted to my art. even though my pictures aren't great i'll keep trying.instead of anime i'm drawing ppl it's a big step up for me. and i hav picked u to draw hope u don't mind. but anyways even though i can't see u in real life just sendind u this note and looking at ur pictures is enough for me. but then again i would love not to draw u not from pics but you yourself in person. well any ways thats all i got to say.

hope your doing well and eating right :)

Rachael im in love with kenichi, i really am, i would do anything to meet you :(

Kuuki Hi Ken'ichi I know you probably don't read this but on the offchance that you do, I wanted to say "Great Job" on your success in all of your movies and tv series. I can't wait to see Gantz when it comes out here in the U.S.

shayla I am a fan of kenichi matsuyama, and i dont watch too much about him. but i like death note because of him. but there is nothinhg wrong with him. :) im from canada) and im really into japanese things. :) sayounara!

shayna hi ken'ichi i like all your movies specialy death note your are the best but the end of L : change the word is litle sad because L is dead!!!!!!!!! so your are the best actor in death note and anata ga daisuki desu ken'ichi (L)

Livyn Hello I am a Brazilian fan and I admire his work, in addition to its beauty. I watched death note and fell in love with you, then detroid metal city, but here in Brazil is difficult to translate things, then watch it in Japanese. As an example, do not laugh my love, the next is Ultra Miracle Love Story. I watch all, because in my my opinion you are the best Asian actor. Te amo muito beijos.

こんにちは私はブラジルのファンになっていると私は、その美しさに加えて、彼の作品に感心する。 Euのイワシモノ素イpensarモノ想ので、outra x女性土居田、のmas mesmo assim ... 私は死に注意を見て、君と恋に落ち、その後detroid金属の都市が、ここブラジルで物事を翻訳する場合、日本語でそれを見ることは難しい。例として、次の私の愛笑いをしないでください ウルトラミラクルラブストーリー。私は、アジア最高の俳優が、私の私の意見のために監視します。

Elise I want L Lawliet back!

Danielle My name is Danielle. kenichi will you e-mail me?? I loved you in death note and i hated that show at first!! peez e-mail me.

Elise To be honest, I don't really like Kenichi Matsuyama. (I hope he's reading this) and I love Death Note, it's just that I don't like Kenichi BUT! -smirks- I prefer L Lawliet, the fictional character at the Death Note than the neat freak Kenichi. (whoa.. I'm attracted to guys with weird, pale and messy do') -hell yeah!- And the homo sapien that impersonates Kenichi... it's obviously not him because of course he will not say anything that will ruin his career. Bad for you! Bye people!

The Revulvas The greatest girl-band of all time times infinity, the Revulvas, would like to formally announce their intention to pursue Ken'ichi Matsuyama to the ends of the earth until he agrees to play a show with them. He may pretend to play any instrument of his choosing, if need be.

kenzi hi Kenichi , i love ur all movie !!!

Getting hold of his work here in South Africa is not easy seeing that there isnt a big demand for japanese movies!!!aaaah im getting Kenichi withdrawal here...i really need more stuff!!

Albert Martini "Matsuyama-san ruLes!". G0Od wOrX Matsuyama-san!,The 'Johnny Depp(Jack of all rOLes that RuLes)' of Japan!.. yeaahhh!.. (:

Jamie-Louise I'm a welsh girl from Wales in the UK....I'm really love Jappanese cultureand this is how a came to find out about Ken'ichi Matsuyama

A lot of people are saying "I love you" here...I wonder if he gets creeped out by that.

Any ways I can't hide the fact that I'm a huge fan of Matsuyama Ken'ichi....I really am. I'm like anyother fan I have dvds of him and photo's but seeing as I'm from the Uk its really hard to find anything which is Asian. But I have scowered the internet looking, watching and following his work.

I love the characters he plays...after I saw him in DN I was amazed to find out more and so I watched more movies including Nana, The taste of tea, Linda Linda Linda...I think my favorite character he has played must be Robo out of Sexy voice and robo...that really made me laugh because i think it showed how nieve the character was. Another character I enjoyed watching you as was Shin from Nana there is one particular scene which remember where the group was on about Nana annd Ren and Shin says a little comment that he already knows and that really made me giggle. My favorite film with him in is Shindo I love the story to it.

Good luck with the future. Cant wait to see him in more movies.

Jamie Hello I am just a Texas girl from America. I have seen most of the movies that you have been in even though it is very hard to find foreign films here...Yes I know I sound like another fan girl...I just want to say is, take it eazy I know it must be hard on you, but take some time to your self or with someone...You look tierd and worn out... Just don't let the pressure of being a star beat you down. I wish you luck and happiness plus all your dreams to come true. Good luck in your next movie. ~*Texas Girl*~P.S. happy late birthday ^_^;

khinsandar win Hi L (I am from Myanmar ) I like your style in Dead note I watched this the whole night and watched from 1 to 3 You act so good and I like u and love u one day I will see and find u in Japan I love u Kenichi Mat su ya ma

Ajeng i drool everytime i see him :D

i had to calm myself down when i was watching 'don't laugh at my romance' trailer, especially in the kissing part... because if i didn't, i'll destroy something

i cried for hours after watching 'L change the world'...

LOVE YOU, KEN'ICHI!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

kob i love kenichi

Rumi Oh, it's too bad that he doesn't have a girlfriend...I had hoped he had someone to be with especially now that Valentine's Day is around the corner. I don't want him to be lonely =(

Aiko annie! kenichi Matsuyama is really good at english!!!

rumi! no kenichi Matsuyama does not have a girlfriend!

kenichi matsuyama english is really good! but he does not speak english that much!

Kenichi Matsuyama is 23 now but in March 5 he will be turning 24!!!

Annie Sorry for my bad grammar. I didn't pay attention. Guess I will have to learn a lot :)

Annie Well in "L change the world" Kenichi did speak English so it's really strange that he don't know English at all...It seems confusing to me...I guess he had to work very hard to pronounce a word if he didn't know anything about it. So admire him :)!

nIKI.sIXX heheh that ´s isn ´t Kenichi ´s comment!!!! because in japanese language sayonara (さよなら) means absolutelly good bye tellings often enemies!

Ken'ichi arigato for your kind comments. chokuritsu! sayonara.

p.s. I'm really short they make me wear stilts

I have two girlfriends cause I am ladies man

have a nice day :)

Grimm Hi.... does anyone know ware he lives?... like does he live in Tokyo.....? TT-TT i might be going to japan and i wanna meet him so bad.....

Rumi Thanks Raku, that was really helpful!

Raku Rumi, 5 minutes into this interview on youtube from the Detroit Metal City screening at TIFF he says (though his translator) that he can't speak English.

Rumi Guess no one around here knows either...

Rumi Actually now i wonder whether he knows English or not :/

Rumi I was wondering whether he had a girlfriend too XDDD But I guess we'll never know since his private life is under wraps.

reg. dududududu~~ i love kenichi matsuyama!! he's hot. *wink wink* hahaha. yea, does anyone wether he has a girlfriend? im juz curious, he's old for me tho, =( is he coming to brunei??

Koumiki Kyaaaaa >-< Matsuken is so awesome ! (Sry for bad english, I'm vietnamese) I like him and his roles verry much! He plays L so good and Robo so funny!

Awesome *-*

faust umm i am a big fan of your work loved u in deathnote as was a great movie they couldnt picked a better person for L

Rumi Does anyone know whether Kenichi has a girlfriend?

CINDY hi..kenichi. my name cindy (Jakarta, Indonesia). I've seen your acting in Death Note as L, and i admire your acting is almost 100 % good same with L in Manga series.. Weel done!!!! Ban zai !!!! ^0^
