Death Parade Ep. 9 – “Death Counter” (Summary)

Shimada and Tatsumi continue to play air hockey as they both vow to seek revenge to those who harmed their loved ones. As they each garner a point, their memories become clearer, until Shimada realizes that the knife he found earlier in his bag was the one he used to kill the man who abused his sister. Tatsumi also remembers that he had already avenged his wife by killing her murderer. He urges Shimada to play better so that he can get out of the bar and find the other man who didn’t help his sister.

When Shimada wins the game, Tatsumi recovers his complete memory and he becomes aware of his death. Shimada finds out that it was actually him who stabbed and killed the detective, since he was the other man that his sister Sae referred to. Even though Tatsumi saw the man assaulting her, he just watched the whole scene and did not help her just so he could pass judgment on the criminal. Decim allows Shimada to inflict punishment to Tatsumi, but the black-haired woman stops him. She reproaches his method of ascertaining Shimada’s motives and drawing out the darkness of his soul, stating that he cannot judge people when he himself cannot comprehend their emotions.

She tries to convince Shimada not to kill Tatsumi so he can be reincarnated and see his sister again in another form. However, the detective continues to sway him with his cruel words and in the end, the young man eventually gives in to his anger, and his soul is sent to the void.

After Decim explains the situation to the two, Tatsumi, a detective, asks for the cooperation of Shimada, a young man in his 20s, to uncover the truth about their plight. They both agree to play air hockey, and as the game progresses, they regain bits of their memories. Tatsumi’s wife was murdered, and he is on the lookout to find the killer. Shimada, on the other hand, seeks revenge to the man who assaulted his younger sister.

The game becomes more intense since both of them want to get out of Quindecim as soon as possible. Decim decides to alter the game a bit and links the plucks to the players’ organs, which will cause pain to the affected body part. The black-haired woman asks Decim to show her the memories that were sent to him beforehand, and after he makes the request, the players’ memories are transmitted to her. After they are sent, her expression instantly changes as she realizes that both Tatsumi and Shimada are killers.
