Death Parade brings you a list of characters whom you will notice and possibly remember the whole show.

He is the one to decide if you will end up your stop in the gates of heaven or hell. However, there is another woman who follows Decim as well on his journey. The black-haired woman is quite an eye-candy throughout the whole show.

So is Decim a human being?

Um…no. Decim is possibly not a human being because there are a ton of instances throughout the entire anime you will get to understand his origin. But one thing for sure, Decim is here to help you judge the true character of a person.

Throughout the anime, you might end up feeling pity for some characters. You might think that they did not deserve the hell which was chosen for them. But, it is not what the audience decides after all.

There are some mini-episodes in Death Parade which are not all high success. In one part, you will see God playing billiard with a member of the bar. Oh, how amazing is that?
