The short film was phenomenal, so I too am very much looking forward to it as a series, it was the gem among the short films for me.

Solid stuff indeed. Sold me on the series instantly. Hopefully they can keep it up for a full season.

After having finally seen Death Billiards I most definitely agree, that was great. Still, I am in some doubt concerning your second statement. Death Billiards was so good because it was quick and to the point. While the setting and idea behind it are very interesting as well, I can't really see it working quite as well over the course of an entire season. It really depends on the characters they introduce. If those fail to be fresh and interesting I think this might get really boring really fast.
Still, this is most definitely one of the things I am looking forward to the most this season, probably number three on my list. Also, this is Madhouse at work, can't remember the last bad show I have seen coming from them, they normally do not disappoint.

The first episode is now up after a delay.

Episode 1

That opening song is so great. The first players are a doctor and wife who died when the doctor tried to grab the cell phone while behind the wheel and the car is sent flying off the cliff. They engage in a game of darts where depending on where the dart lands, they feel the pain. The wife wins with a bull's eye on the last dart, but despite winning she is the one sent to hell as she has a secret: she's pregnant and she didn't really love him and instead the marriage was meant to take advantage of his fortune. That was just brilliant.

Episode 1


Love the music, although the OP animation feels kind of ironically out of place...

I'm loving it so far, and i'm interested to see what other types of bar games they'll play.

A solid first episode to this highly anticipated series.The way that relationship between the couple just unfolded before our eyes was both awesome and terrifying to watch! I can see the tragedy's becoming increasingly gruesome as the series continues. What I'm curious to see is how the story is going to work. From the episode 2 preview it looks like it is going to be a blend of individual episodic stories and a over-arching story involving the Arbiter. That OP was something else too, it kinda reminded me of the Gugure! Kokkuri-san OP.

Wow that OP is amazing. As for the episode, it was a pretty solid start. Can't wait to see the other games.

That OP

Okay, so that was exactly what I expected this show to be. Let's see if they can keep it from being repetitive. That over arching story they seem to be planning could go both ways, it could spice up the games or it could just be a boring waste of time, it all depends on how strong the characters surrounding the arbiter are. I also expected them to start off with a more normal pair of contestants for the first game, those contestants are obviously the key factor to this show, so I'm anxious to see how they keep surprising us with them. Still skeptical in a few places, but that definitely was a strong start.

Solid start, very reminiscent of Hell Girl. Will be interesting to see how big of a role the new girl plays in the story.

Episode 1


Wonderful, one of my favorite episodes from this season and if it keeps it this up, an easy contender for anime of the season.

The first episode was well crafted imo from start to finish with the mind game. I call it more of a mind game rather than just darts since they are playing with their lives on the line. More importantly is how they react to each other after learning the truth. And wow, that OP song was quite refreshing. ED is good too and I think after the credits, we see two other main characters.

Great show so far. Keep it up Madhouse.

I'm glad they choose to tell us where their souls were sent instead of leaving it up to imagination. I don't think I would have liked it if i didn't know every single episode. However I at least wish they would explain why one person goes to one and the other person goes to the other. Maybe they will in later episodes.

Overall I enjoyed the episode. I like the OVA more but I think its mostly because this episode was more of the same where as I expect future episodes will really start to expand on the world more.

It looks like I've just come across yet another gem. First episode left me speechless. I'm calling it right now, this will be the best psychological anime of the year.
