A powerful necromancer known as the Corpse God dies during a legendary battle, only to be reborn as Polka Shinoyama, a young boy in modern-day Tokyo. In the process of trying to adapt to his new physical body, he gets targeted by various groups that deal with the supernatural. Among them is Misaki Sakimiya, a high school girl who can see spirits and is out for his blood from the very moment they meet.

Attempting to make sense of this situation where unknown parties want him dead, Polka eventually meets Takumi Kuruya, a contractor skilled in surveillance and hacking, and Lisa Kuraki, a crime boss operating out of Shinjuku. Alongside these—and other unexpected—allies, Polka braves danger to reveal the truth of his reincarnation and the fate awaiting the world he now lives in.

At first, I watched all nine episodes, but then took a long break because I lost interest. However, I enjoyed the suspense and the twists at the end. It's a perfect combination of isekai, supernatural, shounen, and crime, which I really like. The background music is also very good, especially "Kagome Kagome" which is from a Japanese game. I recommend watching it, but episodes 9, 10, and 11 are a bit boring. However, the ending is really good. Part 2 is now available, so you don't have to wait. Start watching!

Character design is so good, I'm obsessed with it. At first, it's kinda slow, ...

The anime started off great in the first two episodes.
And after that she went in very boring directions.

I really liked the first episode and it made me expect a really good series, but as the episodes progressed, the extent of the disappointment became clear.

Generic characters with no background story, slow and boring pace of plot development.

Usually I deal with anime like this and manage to watch and finish. I had a hard time with this anime.

The design of the anime itself looks good and the battle scenes are reasonable.

"Dead Mount Death Play" is a hybrid anime that combines various genres, including isekai, action, mystery, and supernatural, offering a refreshing break from traditional isekai formulas.

However, the anime has significant drawbacks, such as poor animation quality, inconsistent action scenes, slow pacing in some episodes, underdeveloped supporting characters, and unresolved plot threads. Despite its unique concept and potential, these issues hinder its overall quality. While it ...
