The official website of the Death Parade anime has revealed the preview video, upcoming characters and the synopsis for the 5th episode of the series, set to air on Saturday the 7th of February at 1:58am JST on NTV.

Episode 5: Death March

It has been 6 months since Kurokami no Onna has been helping out Decim. Two new customers are coming into Queen Decim today. It is usually her to greet and meet the new customers, but Decim restrained her. A middle age man with a tired atmosphere named Fuji has appeared in the hall, with a young boy with no memorable feature named Jiro. As Decim begins to explain the nature of the death games, Fuji interrupts him saying that he is familiar with Decim and the Queen Decim. This reaction from a customer is very unprecedented, and Decim proceeds with extra caution…

The English listing of the anime revealed the synopsis for Death Parade:

Queen Dequim is a bar in a corner of the world where the souls of dead people gather. Gray-haired bartender Dequim is responsible for judging the souls.

“Welcome to Queen Dequim.”

With no idea that they have died, two souls walk into the bar. Dequim welcomes the customers, who are clueless as to what is going on. “I’m going to ask you to bet your life and play games,” he declares. The souls must put their best efforts into playing various games for a chance to get out of the bar. Judgment will be based on the outcome of the games. As the games unfold, the souls’ true colors are bared. At the end, Dequim finally reveals that he is the judge. What judgment will he hand down to the two?

Various views on life and a spectrum of sorrows surface from the judged souls, and as he experiences these emotions with Dark-haired woman, the usually emotionless Dequim begins to feel changes within himself.
What is life really all about? What is man’s true nature? The story unfolds as it poses these questions.

The Death Parade anime currently airs every Saturday at 1:58am JST on NTV. The anime will run for a total of 12 episodes.
