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.

Meanwhile, Ayato incessantly assaults Shinohara as fragments of his childhood memories with his father flash before him. However, Shinohara overpowers him and before Ayato is completely killed by the CCG investigator, Kaneki intercepts and attacks the enemy using his new kakuja. His transformation makes him lose control of his sanity as he maniacally assails Shinohara with his incredible speed, enabling him to overwhelm the investigator. While the battle continues between Houji and Tatara, the ghoul facility center suddenly emits CRC gas as the alarm goes off. Tatara simply walks away as the whole area is clouded in smoke.

Koutarou Amon runs into the Yasuhisa twins while he is aiding Akira Mado who was bitten by Naki on the leg. Amon instantly recognizes the ghouls who used to be trainees in the CCG academy. But upon seeing him, Kurona quickly avoids him and runs away together with her injured sister. Amidst the haze, Amon notices Kaneki cannibalizing on what appears to be Shinohara’s Arata armor. The scene infuriates Amon, who first assumed that the “eyepatch” was different from the other ghouls. He attacks Kaneki and cuts off his kagune and kakuja. Amon’s words snap Kaneki back to his senses, and he sheds some tears as he tells the CCG investigator that he doesn’t want to eat anymore. That moment, the One-Eyed Owl appears and retrieves Ayato and Kaneki, leaving the CCG investigators in the ghoul detention center as it flies away.
