Death Parade: The Long March

Funimation has brought us yet another nugget of goodness.

Death Parade is a psychological, supernatural suspense thriller, that leaves you on the edge of your seat the entire time. It also has a wide variety of colorful characters. First off, one of the central characters is named Dekham. He also turns out to be the most interesting. But, I’m getting ahead of myself. Specifically about what kind of story this is. For you see, the whole anime is about life after death, or what happens when we, as human beings die. Where do we go? Who is in charge of determining this? And further more, are we as human beings AWARE of our own deaths? Now, back to the plot. The setting for this story is a bar called Quinn-Dekham. And believe it or not, this is where judgements of the soul are carried out. Now, I know what you’re thinking: What does a bar have to do with life or death? Well, people always need somebody to talk to. Who better than a bartender? Except..as I stated before, it’s not just a bar. And the bartender is not a bartender… Wanna know more? You’ll just have to watch for yourselves. By the way, you’ll never think of elevators the same way again.

Now, for a list of characters:

 

Dekham

Nona

Ginti
