  • Mysterious and amazing
    Before you read on, know that the below text contains some spoilers. If you don't want those, here's the short version: Great art, amazing voice acting, incredible story, lots of little hints and easter eggs that will tell you more about the characters, especially those you will only meet once. If you don't watch this, you'll regret it in your soul.

  • Deceiving; But Very Good
    It's not the type of anime I was expecting it to be; particularly with that opening. But I was hooked immediately. While it's a shorter anime, I wanted so much more. The concept itself is unique; and I enjoyed seeing it realized. My only gripe with the story is that we don't get near as much background to the whole operation as I would have liked.

    That aside: very good animation, great ...

    An Ambiguous Masterwork
    Death Parade is an art piece that I hesitate to write a review on. This is not a review so much as my experience watching the anime. I fear that a review will objectify the anime, which was directed to be left open to interpretation.

    The following is me trivially musing over what the anime meant to me:

    Anime dealing with loss and death of a beloved character tend to rank high on the ...

  • SUCH a Hidden Gem PLS WATCH
    Very emotional, slow at the beginning as far as the underlying story goes, but makes up for it with action-packed episodes every time. Picks up sooooo much at the end its hard to keep yourself together tbh, but it's really so good. The main characters, Decim and who we later learn Chiyuki, grow and develop so much especially Decim who I absolutely fall in love with. My only complaint is that I ...

  • A love letter to life itself
    I imagine anyone picking up a title with the word "death" in it is reasonably expecting a hurricane of gratuitous violence or an existential rollercoaster. This would fall into the latter, an in doing so it encompasses a remarkably wide breadth of what humanity is capable of, respectfully questioning the meaning of life itself. This is a tear-jerkingly beautiful show, and even for someone with a ...

  • Impressive anime! Must watch :)
    It's been awhile since I've watched an anime that was so eye catching and well written. The story was well paced considering the episode count and the character development was so interesting to see. Every character was mysterious and entertaining, but not lacking in depth, if that makes sense. Everything was on point and there wasn't a single thing I was disappointed with. The animation was ...

    Death Parade - An Exercise in Emotion
    I would have given this a 9/10, but since rating only allows out of 5, I give it 5. Death Parade is an incredible work. The characters, dialogue, plot, and details serve to make it truly unique out of anything I have seen. The opening, which can be jarring at first, I think serves to give insight into Decim himself, and his values. Not only does its jaunty tune go in the face of the grim subject ...
