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. 7 – “Alcohol Poison” (Summary)

The black-haired woman is surprised to find a story book entitled Chavvot, which is the one that she has seen in her dreams. Upon seeing it, fragments of her memories flash before her, and she remembers that she is already dead. She asks Decim about it, but he replies that the book probably belongs to the former arbiter of Quindecim which he succeeded.

Years ago, when both Decim and Ginti were assigned to their respective floors, Nona brought the two to observe Quin in her final judgment as an arbiter before she quit to work in the information bureau. Nona gave the men a remote-like device that they could switch on to alter the game, but Decim did not press it. When asked, he said that he forgot to do it because he was distracted during the game by what the guests were thinking. He again emphasized his respect for people who had lived full lives. It is also revealed that Decim, just like the others, is only a dummy , but he has human emotions, which makes Nona more interested with how he arbitrates. As a parting advice, Quin told Decim to find something that he treasures, and the black-haired woman asks him what he cherishes the most.

Oculus: “One. Arbiters cannot quit making judgments for that is the reason why they exist. Two. Arbiters cannot experience death, for that would make them too close to being human. Three. Arbiters cannot feel emotions, for they are dummies.” ©Madhouse

Decim shows her his collection of dummies and how he assembles the mannequins to impersonate the guests that he has judged so that he will not forget them. He claims the dummies which are about to be thrown away because he doesn’t want those people to end up like that as if they never lived a full life.

Towards the end of the episode, it is shown that Nona asks Castra to arrange two special guests for Decim, as if trying to further test the bartender’s skills in judging the departed.
