Death Parade Ep. 12 – “Suicide Tour” (Summary)

“I…can’t press it. Everyone…has feelings for someone. I know that…but even if they have nothing to do with me, somewhere, there is definitely someone else who cherishes them.” ©Madhouse

After receiving the memories of Chiyuki that he requested, Decim takes her to the lowest level which is usually off-limits for the guests. There, he brings Chiyuki back to her house where she meets her mother who is still grieving for her loss. A surge of emotions overwhelms her, and Decim gives her the opportunity to be brought back to life in an instant in exchange for someone else’s life. As she is about to press the button, she suddenly remembers the people she met in Quindecim and she realizes how all of them cherish someone in their lives. She turns down his offer as she looks at her mom and apologizes to her even though her mother cannot see or hear her. That instance, Decim clutches his chest as he finally understands what sorrow is. As Chiyuki changes her mind and asks him to press the button himself, the background breaks into pieces and reveals the lowest floor of the tower where dummies are piled up. Decim apologizes to her and informs her that he just made up everything as part of his judgment as an arbiter.

The two of them have no idea that they are being watched by Nona and Oculus who are both surprised by how the situation turns out. Oculus insists that arbiters should not have emotions as this will only get in their way of judging. Nona thinks otherwise, but he doesn’t press on the matter any further.

Decim apologizes to Chiyuki once more and she embraces him as they both cry their hearts out. Before the elevator to Quindecim closes, Chiyuki sheds tears when Decim flashes her a genuine smile as he reminisces his memories of her. He bids farewell to her as she is sent to reincarnation.

As the episode concludes, two new guests arrive at Quindecim where they are welcomed by the bartender. Decim smiles at them as a dummy of Chiyuki is shown seated beside him.

Death Parade Ep. 11 – “Memento Mori” (Summary)

Chiyuki wears the skating dress and ice skates that she finds in her closet. Decim watches her as she skates gracefully, and with her every movement, fragments of her memories when she was still alive flash before her. She used to be a professional skater until an injury disabled her to pursue her career. She shut herself off from her family and friends, until her depression drove her to commit suicide.

Decim prepares some drinks for both of them at the bar, but right after Chiyuki takes a sip, she barely hears Decim’s apology before she passes out. Decim then asks Quin to send him her memories which Nona also requested earlier. Unbeknownst to Nona, Oculus already knows her secret about Decim.

Ginti, on the other hand, lets Mayu decide to choose another person’s soul in exchange for Harada’s which was sent to the void. However, Mayu offers her own soul to save Harada, but as the elevator closes, both of them are sent to the void as their bodies turn into dummies.

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
