After death, there is no heaven or hell, only a bar that stands between reincarnation and oblivion. There the attendant will, one after another, challenge pairs of the recently deceased to a random game in which their fate of either ascending into reincarnation or falling into the void will be wagered. Whether it's bowling, darts, air hockey, or anything in between, each person's true nature will be revealed in a ghastly parade of death and memories, dancing to the whims of the bar's master. Welcome to Quindecim, where Decim, arbiter of the afterlife, awaits! Death Parade expands upon the original one-shot intended to train young animators. It follows yet more people receiving judgment—until a strange, black-haired guest causes Decim to begin questioning his own rulings.

A high-stakes twist on what happens after death. Your chance at reincarnation could be your reward for gambling in the afterlife.


Even though the characters being judged are generally there for one episode, I feel as though they are real people with real motivations.


A thought provoking anime that pokes holes in the human psyche, showcasing humanities worst traits when under pressure. Recommended.


What’s the best way of coming to terms with your death and before going to Heaven or Hell? Games of course. From Air hockey to Old maid.


A masterpiece show dealing with emotions and dark themes.


The first episode was the only good part of this series, other than that it isn’t as smart as it thinks it is nor is it worth watching


The looks of this anime very unique and pretty
