THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
That was awesome. The OP song is brilliant and quite fitting to the themes.

They didn't waste time with the mind games already so that's a good thing. And not only that, we get Decim who is quite content on making his intentions known. Kinda felt sorry for that woman this episode for what she's going through although she is equally guilty. Found the dart game and staking to be quite something though. The expressions and tone clearly crafts the pain of the duo.

Nice start for the show, looking forward to more.

Great start. Reminded me of the ova and how people can be very selfish when pushed into a corner. The op seemed pretty random 0_o

It was sad to see how that guy's suspicions ended up being correct.

This was great. I didn't read the description but i had a feeling i knew where they were.
At no point in the episode was I sure what was going to happen next.
Plot twisted so many times, i was on the edge of my seat.

The start felt almost identical to Death Billiards, I hope they can mix it up so it doesn't feel stale.

Followed the same structure of the OVA more or less. Seems next week is when the anime will go deeper into the universe and explore behind the curtain

Surprised though, the woman did end up going to hell because she was actually having an affair. The framing of her confession made it seem like she was faking it so her husband could be spared but nope she earned the ticket all by herself

yup... sent to hell, i think
she was the red side, he was on the blue side.

EDIT: the end part of this, basically the man sent for reincarnation, the woman into void... whatever that is

Sadly, this didn't grab me as much as the OAV (which I absolutely loved). The revelations about the 2 characters of this episode just felt kinda random...
I'm rather disappointed for now, let's see how it goes in the next episodes.

This is some strong psychological shit and I'm not disappointed.

OH BOYYYY, I can already smell the great stuff we could get from this. Fucking great start! Honestly, this could very well be the AOTS, great animation, very fluid with a nice art style fitting for the theme this treats about. The soundtrack isn't too flashy but sets the tone in a good way and is fine enough. Madhouse, you have done it again! Now, to see where they go with the settung and the plot.
The anime industry is dead, the otaku fanbase killed it.

Really enjoyed it - it felt real and gripping the entire way through.

Also, I love fun little OP's like this, I hope they develop all these new characters well though.

Her having a long lost friend invited to the marriage, who almost had the same name and was also married to a doctor would have been a little bit ridiculous if it didn't end up being a lie. :-D

That was okay I suppose. Still hope they mix it up a little cause this was a little too similar to the OVA.

OMG best anime of the season already. I just don't know what to say about it.
Its like NGNL expect for it has a darker tone to it.

The OP was awesome and so was the ED can't wait until Reserve comes on.

Great first episode. OP was pretty good if not a little odd considering the dark setting. Looks like it's not just going to be a new game every episode too as the bar characters will have their own stories going on (maybe).

Nice start anyway. ^^

The saddest part is when she realizes what she's done to her husband, how she completely made him monstrous making her forthcoming confession all the more tragic--a means to promptly end his suffering.

Also: What's the point of the game to ensure scenarios like what happened to the couple occur (in effect the result of the game doesn't matter) or does the game actually determine who goes to heaven or hell (read: the void) or both help?

Oh man that first episode! I love how it played out, I'm so keen to see more. I'm feeling that if this continues to be episodic like this, I'll actually really like that..

For once. (not true)

Sometimes I wonder why do I still watch anime, and an episode like this comes up. I hope the rest of the episodes are as good as this one. I remember how speechless I was left when I saw Death Billiards from Anime Mirai 2013

By the way, notice that the masks above the elevators are different when they leave. The man has a smiling mask (reincarnation) and the woman a demon (void). When they arrived it was reverse

Much better than I expected it to be! I think it did a good job of making me (us) hyped for the next one. I also like the op, it seems very out of place and a bit whacky but still kind of fits the mood and the ed is also pretty decent. Overall good episode, I'm curious about what's coming up next!

Could it be that she actually lied for him? When she said that she cheated, Dekim looked surprised.

Just amazing :O Based MH.

The way the emotions were depicted was perfect. Misunderstandings one after another showing how human can become when pushed into the corner.

Really didn't expect Machiko to really have been cheating O_O The way they showed it made it seem like she was just making it up so she pisses off Takashi after seeing him doubting her that much. To think I actually felt bad for her <_<

Animation, Music and ED were amazing! OP was awesome but unexpected lol

Sweet Jesus, that was so intense. It was only the first episode but so far was great. Their facial expressions was marvelous. I love these. It will be the best anime of this season I think. That opening fucked me up though. Can't wait to the next episode!

I'm honestly not totally convinced that she did cheat :/

The way Decim was surprised and how Machiko bit her lips seemed like she was forcing herself to lie.

If she really was a cheating bitch would she confess about what she did? wouldn't she just go to heaven...

basically an exact copy of the original OVA except with darts instead of billiards

not sure how the overarching story of this will actually play out though, we'll see
