Death Parade Summary:
So basically, in simple terms, when two people on earth die in the same time they are magically sent to bars with the bartenders who are arbiters; aka, they are literally judges who decide if you go to heaven/hell. They judge you by putting you in Death Games with your "life on the line". As the people play with their "life on line" secrets of the events that lead them to their death appear as flashbacks in their minds and will lead them to their fate after the game. The main character of anime is Decim a loner bartender of Quindecim. Who seems to have absolutely no emotions at all and has weird hobbies(like really werid, like creepy weird) until he meets a black - haired lady(who I am not allowed to speak of their name unless I want share a spoiler) who looks like she has no emotions, but probably has the most emotions out of everyone in this anime.
A LITTLE WARNING BEFORE YOU WANT THIS ANIME: Please don't be tricked by this Anime's opening, I came into this anime thinking it was some type of postive funny comedy cause of the opening...this anime is actually very heart breaking and will internally hurt you in the feels. If you've read beyond this point you have accepted the future pain to your feels and will not hold me responsible for your depression*sign imaginary contract* Now...moving on *cough, cough* You don't have to worry, at first, the story is very entertaining...in a scary aspect, especially as you see the contestants fight for their lives in Death games. Most of the anxiety comes from discovering the contestants pasts and how they may or may not be connected. Once I watched the first episode, I thought the whole story was gonna be like this, but no, this anime becomes even sadder and you start to discover the plot. The black hair lady, which I can not call by name for they are spoilers, also died, and that is why she remains their, but her case is rare, and sad. At the end this story gives a whole lot a feels, especially as the black haired lady changes Decim, and finds her true self. Now if you want me to review an anime or manga comment below the name; I will only review the Manga series/animes that I have read/seen, but I may watch a anime you request depending on the episode count. Also this may not be my finalized review, I slowly change, edit and reinforce my reviews every now and then.
