Death Parade Ep. 10 – “Story Teller” (Summary)

Decim starts to question his ability as an arbiter after what the black-haired woman told him in the previous game. He visits Nona and asks her, but Nona reminds him to judge the woman instead. Humans cannot stay in their place for too long or they will turn into dummies. Decim turns down Nona’s suggestion of sending him the woman’s memories, and proceeds to the judgment where another guest participates.

Sachiko Uemura, an illustrator, plays a card game called Old Maid with Decim and the black-haired woman. Upon seeing the designs on the cards, she realizes that she is already dead. As the game continues, the woman finally remembers her name after seeing an illustration of Chavvo. Sachiko tells them the story of Chavvot, and Chiyuki, the black-haired woman, regains a bit of her memory with her mom.

Oculus, on the other hand, summons Clavis and absorbs his memories where he learns about Decim who has human emotions, which is against one of their rules.

Chiyuki loses the game, and she sees Sachiko off to the elevator for reincarnation. She stays behind with Decim, and the bartender asks her to tell him everything about human emotions.

“There is a point to living. The same goes for judgment. Judgment must be performed hand in hand with both life and death. It is something that must be performed hand in hand with humans. And for that reason, human emotions…Would you please tell me everything?” ©Madhouse

Death Parade Ep. 5 – “Death March” (Summary)

The black haired woman wakes up from a recurring dream about a story of a boy and a girl. After she gets up, she immediately readies herself to assist Decim who, at that time, is changing the roulette per Nona’s instructions. She is surprised to see the panel with the picture of the girl in her dreams. Right then, the elevators open, and a man comes out first, followed by a young boy. The two take their seats, and Decim immediately asks the two if they remember anything before arriving at the bar. The man seems to have some memories of the place and Decim, while the boy has no clue at all. As the man takes a sip of his beer, he instantly remembers everything about the bartender and Quindecim. He takes hostage of the boy and threatens the arbiter, but Decim quickly binds the man. But the boy takes his chance when Decim is distracted and he puts the black haired woman to sleep.

Decim gets a clear idea of the situation as the boy transforms and reveals his original form. It turns out that he is also an arbiter named Ginty. He asks Decim why he hasn’t passed the judgment on the woman yet, and Decim informs him that he couldn’t do it the first time she appeared at the bar since she knew from the start that she was already dead. Ginty continues to lash out at the stone-faced arbiter, who admits that he finds the woman fascinating. Nona then appears, together with Clavis, after she played billiards with Oculus. Nona stops Ginty and reveals that the “guests” are part of Quin’s memory test for Decim, who failed to notice the peculiar situation with the guests. Clavis takes the body of the man which is actually just a dummy before leaving with Ginty. Nona also gives a brief lecture to Decim before returning to her abode. Once the three are gone, Decim carries the black haired woman back to her room, where she continues to dream about the boy and the girl. The boy’s name is revealed as Jimmy, and the girl is called Chavvot, and the two of them are shown on the cover of the book that Nona is reading.

Narrator: “His mom told him that the girl’s name was Chavvot. As Jimmy drank his hot cocoa, he kept repeating ‘Chavvot’ again and again. Someday, I’ll convey my feelings to her.” ©Madhouse
