old man reminded me of netero from hunter x hunter especially with that smile at the end in the elevator.
also their are multiple exceptions to where they end up and based on the possible hints and clues.
The young guy went to heaven and the old guy got an extra life. Old man technically won the game of pool based on pool rules(which could possibly be something the 2 guys were whispering about) and he also never showed hate for the young guy's reaction. The young guy realized what he has done and regretted it.
Old man wanted to taste the pickles/beer combo so only way that would be possible is if it was brought back to life again. The young guy went to heaven because the butler guy told him to rest in peace which i doubt going to hell would be "peaceful".
I think the masks are their to trick people seeing as this looks to be an anime where you have to account for every detail and the fact that where they ended up wasn't obvious based on what you see or else the chick would at least know where they would end up because she works there.

What i think everyone is forgetting is that, we are never told that 1 has to go one way an the other the other. I watched death Parade before i watched this one, and there is no heaven there is void and reincarnation. I believe they both deserve reincarnate, none of them deserve to go to the void. Unless in a later chapter, they let us know that for them to both go to the same place they both have to be in the same elevator, i believe they both got reincarnated. I f not ill go with the old guy going to the void.

I didn't expect that the old man was the one going to hell, I thought it will be the young dude because he was trying to kill the old man. Dat twist.
Awesome movie, and i'm enjoying the series right now.

Man the movie is awesome. The atmosphere was amazing, the characters interesting, the story interpretable.
One thing I dislike though was the idea of getting killed because you cheat. Not only that, but going to hell because of that without having much an opportunity to repent. Kind of hate Otoko's girlfriend/wife for that. But I guess that's what the game was for. To fight fate and prove you don't belong in hell, even though the character did the exact opposite and pretty much assured his place in hell by killing the old man.
That being said, he could have still ended up in heaven if the old man traded places while speaking with Decim.
The thing though, the whole thing seemed rigged. The game was predetermined to be billiard for Otoko to loose (so initially one would assume he was predisposed to go to hell from the beginning), and then he won, but the only way he could win was by killing the old man (which also kind of targets him for a place in hell). Feels like "damned if you do, damned if you don't".

It is pretty well confirmed that the masks match up. They are not always the same in the anime followup, and Decim has stated where some participants have gone, and it matches up with the masks. The masks can also change, as there was one episode with two white masks, or "reincarnation" masks.

That was boring. I lost interest completely the moment the old man fought. I also feel that it's "pretentious".
I guess it's still good for what it is, that is to train the young animators.

Just finished Death Parade, and this is better. I wish I was one of these guys who are being trained to be animators T^T
You guys here keeps on saying "hell" and "heaven", when Decim just said that there is no heaven and hell. Looks like the boy got reincarnated, and the badass Grandpa decided to become more badass. In Death Parade, his wife is a nice lady, maybe he got soft as time went by.
Well, a season 2 would be cool. With more of this, though. Thank you ^^ Posts: 4299

Such an excellent movie.
That was so thrilling and intense *.*
I mean, the premise is amazing as it is and then the art is outstanding as well; there's no way this could go wrong.
I haven't watched Death Parade yet, but it seems that this is a hell of an awesome prologue.
So..., I'm guessing the old man went straight to hell uh?
The last dialogue between the young guy and the bartender was pretty intense as well, althought it felt a bit out of place...
Oh, and what about those pool bals the Bartender was holding? They had the picture of their hearts, does that means they are both alive? But, wasn't the young guy the only one who got reincarnated? This is a bit confusing.... But well, I guess things are gonna get clearer when I start watching Death Parade.
Anyway, that was awesome.
These were made by my awesomely cool friend illmadz :

Death Parade + Death Billiards =
a. You die so cherish it and love others
b. If you've done some bad things but want to change for the better,you will be reincarnated to "restore your debt."
c. If you know you've done horrible things but don't regret it, you will be sent to the void because you've caused pain to other people.
d. It is wrong to save yourself for the cost of another.
e. Simply following logic and reasoning will not help you understand other people and yourself. Must develop feelings.
f. Everyone deserves a chance to go to heaven. All you need to do is change your perspective and look at the good of life. (After all, without bad, there's no term for "good")
g. If you're going to kill someone for revenge, be prepared that you may be killed as well.
h. You choose whether to believe in god or not. Just believe in yourself...because you're the only one that controls you.
i. Humans believe that to consider something "real", there must be scientific or logical reasoning. False, humans created explanations to understand life, therefore, any "reasoning" is possible, and anything, can be real.
j. Don't fear death
k. Don't try to lie in order for people to think you're honest.
l. Give everyone a shot if someone asks to go on a date with you.

[quote=Hentai4theplot]This was an interesting watch it was like Kaiji meets Jigoku Shoujo! I know it's a training project but i really hope they continue this a bit further someday.
Death parade is the full version that this spin off was taken from. I would also recommend the dubbed version if your going to watch it. :)
