Anime — Death Parade

 

One show that took me by surprise this season but I’ve been painfully enjoying is Madhouse’s Death Parade. Based on the title alone you can probably gather it’s not going to be a happy, fun ride but it is supremely entertaining. Tomoaki Maeno (Juichi Fukutomi from Yowamushi Pedal, Camus from Uta no Prince-sama) plays a perfect dead-pan Decim and I’m loving the powerful, blue-haired Nona.

I don’t want to describe too much since it was really fun going into the series completely blind. The first episode has an intriguing set-up and the second episode replays the events of the first from the perspective of different characters.

And the opening is delightful!

You can watch Death Parade on Funimation’s site or on Hulu.
