Death Parade (デス・パレード Desu Parēdo) is an anime series created by Yuzuru Tachikawa, a producer from Madhouse. It is based off of the 2013 animated short film Death Billiards, also created by Yuzuru Tachikawa. It started airing on January 10, 2015. The series has 12 episodes in total.


After death, humans go to either heaven or hell. But for some, at the instant of their death, they arrive at the Quindecim, a bar attended by the mysterious white-haired Decim. He challenges them to a Death Game, where in they wager their lives and reveal their true natures. Decim himself is an arbitrator of who loses and who wins, who goes to the void and who is reincarnated.

Synopsis & Setting Edit

The series revolves around Decim, the bartender and Arbiter of Quindecim, and his assistant the black-haired woman. Quindecim serves as a holding area for souls of people who have died at the same time. Decim intimidates the recently deceased people to play a "life threatening game" so he can evaluate them and decide whether their souls will go to the void, or be reincarnated.

Decim receives his "guests" at the same time. They may have died together or at separate places. His guests memories have been erased and are programmed to be sent back during their Death Game. How they behave during their game affects how Decim will pass judgment on their souls.
