>>120130720
He didn't understand that Machiko's speech at the end was a complete and utter lie to make Takashi focus his hatred from himself - for killing his wife and unborn child due to his paranoia - on her.
She cheated once, but that was after they got married, she didn't marry him for his money, she genuinely loved him and wanted to have a life with him.

Decim's screw up was taking everything she said at face value and basing his judgement on that. He completely misread the situation.

Whether the judgement was correct or not and which one deserved to go to the Void more is ultimately irrelevant, the thing that matters was that Decim based his judging on entirely wrong facts.
>>
>>120128987
She was after his money from the start. He made a proposal to her saying he wanted to make her happy. She was confounded, it was the first time she realized someone could love her. A little after she cheated on her husband. She felt incredibly guilty. She realized she was wrong and wanted to stay with her husband.

Husband hears talk of his potential gold digging wife. He realized he is in too far. During the honeymoon jealousy finally grips him and in state of anger accidentally got them killed. It was unfortunate and tragic, however it was by accident.

She is in the wrong. She cheated on him. Although she felt guilty the husband's only wrong was being not confronting the situation right. Their deaths was by accident.

No, their deaths were due to Takshi's stupidity of grabbing at his wife's phone while he was driving on a cliffside road. That's not a fucking accident.

He was always the one escalating things and being spiteful and trying to attack.
The wife cheated on her husband. The husband risked his wife's life when he suspected only one of them could survive (after they'd both agreed to not hit targets), killed his wife's fetus because he suspects it isn't his, and tried to kill her afterward.

>>
>>120131092
>No she wasn't, you idiot.
The friend's were talking about it. They said they machiko was after him because he was a well esteemed handsome doctor. And that she was lucky to snag him.

When the husband finally proposed she felt guilty as fuck. When she went to see her other man and fucked, she felt incredibly guilty afterwards.

>>120131092
He did not plan to drive off the cliff you idiot. It's manslaughter at most. It wasn't murder. He did not mean it.

He was trying to continue the game in order to win - when he thought whoever lost would die - before any of that. I'm judging him pretty harshly for that.

Even in your scenario, he, in a fit of disbelief over both being dead and what he had done, was accusing his wife of not loving him and of trying to pass someone else's baby off as his. She responds to this by trying to make him feel better (not that that made any sense, but I guess that's the canonical interpretation). He responds to the "revelation" that the child actually isn't his and that the woman he's been haranguing, has just killed by accident, and just intentionally tried to have killed (albeit indirectly) doesn't actually love him by attempting to murder her violently. He's not the ideal man of the house.

Why do people keep taking the wife's side?

Don't they understand that no matter what understanding of morality they're coming from (except consequentialism, but even then it's quite a stretch) they cannot reasonably defend the wife's actions.

There is no reasonable argument to be made to defend the wife.

no one is arguing that point, but he believed that she was someone who he put his trust in and betrayed him to the core, then walks away scot free. some people would not take that lightly. he was able to reign in his jealousy while alive because his trust/love was greater than his suspicion. that's why he never abused her or made accusations without evidence. with his suspicions confirmed by the words from her mouth, it tore his mind to shreds because the thought of the betrayal wounded him so deeply

Decim couldn't see Machiko's face just before she goes off on Takashi. The new girl is sitting on the opposite side of Mackiko just before she starts lying, so she was able to see her face and deduce that she was.

Takashi is said to have a soul incapable of trusting others, meaning that even in reincarnation it would be exceedingly difficult to live a happy life. This is later realized by the short white haired girl at the end of ep 2. This is why she starts out saying the new girl did pretty well at first, but after realizing the truth takes it back and says she still has a ways to go.

And even then, since she chose to hide it up until the very end, he had every reason to believe she cheated on him multiple times and thus it was not his son. In the end it's all her fault.

>Because she sacrificed herself for her husband.

No she didn't. She lied at the end to insure her husband won't feel like shit for sending them to the void.

Obviously if he knew the truth the outcome would be the same. She would still be sent to the void and he would screaming and crying that they should take him instead. But they won't.

Yet, she knew their lives were on the game. Even if she thought it'd be her demise or going to hell, she still sacrificed herself.

She clearly deeply regretted it. Though I guess you ignored it since you're just baiting.

>But he didn't murder her.
He killed her child, was willing to sacrifice her life for his own after persuading her to not try to hurt him more (during the game, I mean), and then he ran at her, knocked her over, and jumped at her with weapons in his hand.

There is no evidence to suggest that she did know about a demise.

You don't know to what degree she regretted it. Besides, that's irrelevant. Actions speak louder than words. If she did regret it, she would have told the truth during the years.

>>120132153
It was only not murder because he was tricked about the loser dying and because a bartender used magic to stop him when he jumped on her.

Even if you refuse to concede murder, let's say a woman cheated and her husband beat her, making her lose the child, and then attempted to stab her - quite possibly fatally - before she escaped. Same question.

He didn't trust his wife after hearing her friend's talk. Whether the friends were right or wrong, it's understanble that anyone would have thought that it was evidence for the wife's cheating.

That's it. The doctor didn't show any signs of not trusting other people.

That's fucking bullshit and just goes to show how poorly this show is actually written. There's nothing indicating he couldn't trust people, he merely held onto a suspicion after overhearing a conversation between two of his wife's friends in a situation they had no reason to lie that seemed to paint their situation perfectly. He didn't even really act on it until after she fucking cheated and began acting suspicious, if she hadn't already been cheating to begin with.

He's right, though. The show is clearly saying the guy couldn't trust people, and given that his first reaction to hearing his wife's friends use a nickname that might be hers was to hide, that he sat there stewing about it for ages, and that he flew into blind rage about it and then went borderline delusional refusing to believe that it was his child, I'd say that's a reasonable claim for the show to make, especially when voiced by a character who literally knows all of the couple's memories.

What I want to know is what exactly is the void? I feel like there's more to it then just eternal darkness. Why do souls have to go there? They pick two random ones who died at the same time and they are required to put each in one elevator? Could they place two in reincarnation or two in the void? Is this how the universe maintains balance? Should I really be taking a show with this kind of OP seriously? I mean, they're all dancing around. It kind of kills the serious mood Death Billiards set up.

she cheated on him while they were both alive, shortly after their marriage, and pretended she never did anything wrong.
as for him, despite his paranoia, he kept it in check, never abusing her or accusing her without evidence because he loved her more than he suspected her.

in the game, she says things to provoke him, confirming his deepest fears, all the time he had to wrestle with his paranoia turned into torturous memories of betrayal

how much torture did he put her though again? how many memories of his flaws caused her doubt and fear? none, all of her pain was from her own actions

No. A character from the show is saying that.

They were suspicions. It wasn't strong evidence. And that's reasonable.

If he had brought them up to his wife, whether they were true or not, it's not unreasonable to think his wife would have called him paranoid.

>>120132792
>The show is clearly saying the guy couldn't trust people
By saying he had problems trusting his wife because of a conversation he heard and because she was acting suspicious after she cheated. There's nothing indicating he couldn't trust others.

>went borderline delusional refusing to believe that it was his child
Because he was about to go over the edge after learning they were dead. Jesus, people, it's like you've never heard of the stages of grief or something. Denying it was his kid was a defense mechanism to help him cope with the situation.

>I'd say that's a reasonable claim for the show to make
Claiming a person could never trust others based on what little information they had when she did cheat on him is fucking stupid. You might as well have said the wife would always cheat on her husband because souls can never change and if she cheated once, she'll cheat again.

>especially when voiced by a character who literally knows all of the couple's memories.
She doesn't, she only knows memories of pertaining to their death and it comes to them like a kaleidoscope. She has no idea what the rest of their lives were like. If she did, it'd make the fact that the wife lied even more retarded than it actually is when you have someone that knows everything she ever did not questioning the fact she only cheated on him once and that the baby is for sure Takahashi's when he can just look through her memories and see that she's fucking lying.
>>
>>120132941
>how much torture did he put her though again? how many memories of his flaws caused her doubt and fear? none, all of her pain was from her own actions
You can really easily turn this around and say that his own paranoia caused him his problems.

And unless we're going utilitarian, none of that matters, considering that she didn't know he'd overheard anything, and if we are going utilitarian, then his justifications for attacking her become irrelevant.

There's nothing indicating that was on purpose. If you're going to argue that, the wife hitting him in the eyes and lung on purpose are both equally as likely.

because the memories don't determine someone's character. They can't read the soul, so they have the two souls compete.

You can't say that because there was no paranoia. Paranoia is essentially irrational fear. Like it was already argue over and fucking over again, his suspicions were reasonable.

>So you'd send the wife who cheated to hell or prison or whatever
Yes, she fucking did something wrong.

>but not this husband
For what? Suspecting his wife might have been cheating and being right which lead to a car accident? None of those are as intentionally malicious as cheating. Hell, even her confession was cruel as hell, pushing a guy already almost over the edge way over. If she wanted to redeem herself, she would have just straight told the truth, assuming she was lying about everything, and accepted the natural consequences of her actions. Instead she muddled the issue and practically destroyed her husband in the process.

You can definitely argue this, but my take is that that was supposed to be given as true. I don't think we're supposed to be doubting the head arbiter (or whatever she is) on that judgment.

>given that his first reaction to hearing his wife's friends use a nickname that might be hers was to hide
I think you meant to quote the bit after that, because that makes more sense with your post. I'm not saying that I'd look at those actions and declare that he couldn't trust anyone, but a guy stewed in his suspicions for ten weeks+, so I'm willing to buy that he had difficulty trusting others if that's what we're told as viewers.

He was shaking her and beginning to break down and intending to continue playing past the end before she remembered that.

I thought the memories the people got back were death-related, but the arbiters got a spectrum of all of them? Not sure, though. I sort of thought the whole lying thing was stupid, though, for the reasons you described.

He held suspicion because of the conversation with her fiends, but didn't act on it, merely put it aside. When the wife cheated and began actually acting suspicious, then it became more of a prevalent issue and would not have been paranoia.

I'm getting worried every episode is going to end with someone acting silly and drooling everywhere after death darts and death billiards.

What are they really going to do if someone says "I refuse to play this gay-me"? How do they handle the guy who says he'd rather take a shit for the next 3 hours in that clean as fuck bathroom and wait out the time limit?

What it boils down to is that we have two souls.
One that struggles with itself to remain true to others, and another that does not trust others and is violently angry when others fail to be perfect.

Two can play at bullshit.

just because she says he cannot find happiness doesn't mean he cannot do good for others, even while he suspected his wife he never did anything to her until he learned a colored truth he would be a good engineer or detective or something. betrayal on the other hand is guaranteed to cause harm especially if hiding the truth is the answer to a mistake

>>120133302
>He was shaking her and beginning to break down
The situation was stressing him out, which only further shows how poorly he was handling the situation. That lie was devastating to him considering how poorly he was handling everything before, couple that with him learning they died in an accident and that he potentially killed his child, the dude was practically broken. His wife's lie hurdled him over the edge.

>I thought the memories the people got back were death-related, but the arbiters got a spectrum of all of them?
There are too many memories for them to sift through, so they only take away the memories pertaining to their death and give them to the arbiters so that they wouldn't remember they died and the arbiter can use it to sort of gauge their character and how they may act. Over the course of the game, those memories they took come back to them.

Well your take on it is wrong.

>I don't think we're supposed to be doubting the head arbiter (or whatever she is) on that judgment.

What the fuck are you trying to say? That people can't think on their own and reach their own conclusion?

I sure can criticize a character or the show, especially when it's been already shown that arbiters are biased and flawed.

>but a guy stewed in his suspicions for ten weeks+, so I'm willing to buy that he had difficulty trusting others if that's what we're told as viewers.

Who wouldn't be suspicious for weeks? He had no idea that she stopped cheating. For all he knows, she could still be cheating. Especially when she was being secretive about who called her.

Your argument is basically circular: "It's true because someone in the show said so or it's true because that's what viewers were told".

Just stop arguing that, it's cringe-worthy.

No, they only judge them, you stupid faggot. The arbiters just send them off to be reincarnated/destroyed. They don't actually do it themselves.

Also, the whole afterlife thing isn't really the main point of the series. What the show is doing is giving you the story of the two dead people. It's a drama between them. That's why these threads are always filled with who was right and who was wrong instead of the logistics behind the afterlife. The death room thing is just there are a loose framework.
>>
The idea isn't to decide who is good and who is bad. It's to decide which soul is more worthy of reincarnation.

>The man tried to win against her in a game where he thought the loser died after making her think that no one would die.
There's about as much evidence for this as the woman trying to win the game, she hit his eyes and lungs and there's no way to prove these were on accident anymore than most of his hits.

>Upon finding out she'd cheated, he killed her fetus
This is entirely false. Disregarding the fact they're already dead and there was no way to know whether they were actually doing any damage to the other person's body to begin with since they merely felt the pain, he remembered she possible cheated after he threw that dart. Before throwing it, he still thought the child was his and there's no reason he would have intentionally tried to harm it.

>tormented her, grappled with her
He thought she cheated and was trying to get answers. He was also becoming increasingly stressed out from the situation and remembering that he had possibly cheated on him, these aren't exactly unforgivable actions given the circumstances.

>and tried to stab her in the face but was forcibly restrained at the last minute.
Because she fucking destroyed him. He was already wallowing around, blubbering and in denial about the whole thing, he was clearly not in a stable state of mind. She then told said individual, willing to accept practically anything to escape the reality of him potentially causing the death of his own child, that their relationship was entirely a lie and the child wasn't his. You might hold them responsible if he actually did do harm to her, which he didn't though might have intended to, but given the situation, it's really hard to blame him.

That being said, the wife intentionally broke their trust and intentionally lied and completely destroyed his already delicate psyche, intentionally or not. The show itself tries harder to paint the situation more black and white than it actually is and fails miserably.

>Also, how the fuck did Decim not know if the woman is lying?
It's stated in the show that they don't know what the people are thinking during the game they can only guess. He has her memories, but not her emotions, and he doesn't have the emotions that regular people do, he stated this in Death Billiards that he doesn't understand what it's like to be alive.

Everyone called the wife a bitch until eps 2 arrived, because they never considered she was lying about not loving him.

>He has her memories. If she knows whose baby it is, so does he.
Could you imagine that he knows what it felt like for her to be cummed inside with her memories? Or m-maybe he doesn't get all the memories of the person or maybe she wasn't even sure who's baby it was, but I think she more so got sent to the void because she said she didn't love her husband and only married him for money, and Decim doesn't have the emotional experience to see through that lie.

Initially yes; however I stand by it. I figured it wasn't exactly logical for her to turn 180 (anime/madhouse not be subtle at the faces) she wanted a confession.. that wasn't really it.

And this is when they both thought he was getting the void.

The staring/crying at the ring is laughable considering how much it seems to mean in that shot in ep2 but is meaningless in the flashback. She does regret it though but it was only after things went to shit and she got found out in limbo.

She was their undoing and had the most/entire control of the situation before the accident; as he couldn't force a confession.

This show is so stupid. Who the hell put these people in charge? They just willy nilly throw people into fucking eternal nothing by accident? That's a pretty huge fucking thing to fuck up. Not to mention you're letting a shit soul get reincarnated.
How can you even judge a person by putting them in a situation where they are told they'll die or have to kill someone. What the fuck? Obviously some people have the instinct to stay alive no matter what. What about all the good shit they did when they were alive? That just goes out the fuckin' window?

This is like shitty Saw if Jigsaw just picked people out at random.

They literally bring people into a room they have no memory of coming to.

Then they show them what looks like a significant amount of dead hanging bodies saying implying "This is what happens if you don't play the game".

They then pit two people against each other in a game ominous game that (at the very least) references references THEIR body parts.

I don't know about you but if I was in that situation I would assume the loser would die.
>>
>>120134849
But they specifically mention that that's the intended effect, they just go about it in a passive way so they can claim "But we never actually said that" after the fact. It's like waving a gun in front of a cashier and telling them they can't leave and when they hand you the money and you're caught, you try to claim you never told them that you were robbing them, you were just waving a gun around and making some sort of bullshit social commentary about the working class being stuck in their menial jobs and they just willingly gave you the money.
