If it only had judgement episodes, it would have been great (though not as good as other anime this season).
However, they keep having meta episodes or comedy episodes that I personally didn't find very funny so its actually shaping up to be disappointment of the season.

You have to admit, Death Parade really is a masterpiece.

I haven't seen a show as deep and philosophical as this for a long time.
>>
>>121511395
I believe you've missed the point of the show. It's not supposed to be dramatic; making light of life & death is a product of artistic finesse. Madhouse have done it again.

Death Parade is basically using Sharia law to judge souls. One judge with no jury is able to sentence harsh punishments with little fairness. We've already observed the wrong people being sent to 'Hell', just because of a mistake.

A gag anime can't beat the artistic integrity Death Parade has. Gintama doesn't have deep themes, just stupid jokes.

It's more enjoyable to watch. I didn't say it had a better story, just watching it every week to see how much the writers can do an ass pull to fix a plot hole, or how more stupid characters can get makes it worth watching

A shitty ending, one so tasteless it devalues the entire experience. You can't refute this.

The intro of Death parade was so good that i thought it would be a good show, but i was very wrong about that.

That was begining of first season, it all went downhill from there.

You can't be this delusional. It's not only that nips hate it, it's fuckin winter and a madhouse show to boot.

It might as well have even worse numbers.

If Death Parade was made by KyoAni or I.G. would you be more willing to watch it? Big name companies have an effect on the market. Educate yourself.
>>
>>121514943
And how that matter? It's just retarded /a/ "meme" that Madhouse's shows don't sell. DN, NGNL, Mahouka were succesful. Galaxy Angel had 3 sequels, Oda Nobuna had decent sales.
>>
>>121515012
I watch nearly everthing per season most likely I would.
So Madhouse isn't a big name?
>>
>>121515016
Yes, it's so retarded that it's true.

Don't get angry that your shitty western pandering show is not selling at all.
>>
>>121510701
Sunrise has taken AOTY for several years in a row and this year will be no different.
>>
>>121514952
okay, then why doesn't death parade have any hype? the only hype ive seen for this show was at the beginning where the United Slut Defense were looking for an explanation in the second ep.
>>
>>121515095
Who decides if show is western pandering? Nips or autistic faggots on boards for basement dwellers?
>>121515147
Term AOTY on /a/ is worth shit and only causes retarded shitposting. It shoul've been blacklisted like "shota" and cause thread to autosage.
>>121515178
Why does hype matter? Mushishi Zoku threads were mostly dead, does it make show bad?
>>
>>121515061
If you watch everything you say you watch then you would know Madhouse is declining in popularity.
Sunrise has always taken the lead and probably stay that way for a couple more years. See >>121515147
>>
>>121510701
It's to straight forward for japan, what they should have done is not explain shit, make the bartender a teenager dealing with overblown emotions about judging the way people lived despite never having lived himself, you could make it so he gets emotionally attached to people he knows will disappear from him life in a few hours. It's always vague and emotional shit that wins awards.
>>
>>121512165
Nips are never right when it comes to anime...

>Sunrise has always taken the lead and probably stay that way for a couple more years.
Not even studio matters these days without marketing like Sonyjews from Aniplex.
Good night.
>>
>>121515256
hype is what makes people more inclined to watch something. unlike you, who probably sticks around until the end, other people have wavering interest levels similar to a rat with adhd. most people wouldnt want to spend time or money (if you live in nip land) to watch something that isnt worthwhile

basic economics 101 yo

Nips already said they hate it.

And the sells number proved enough. I don't know what else to tell you.

I love mech and scifi in general, I only go a few episodes into A/Z I really did like the idea of somewhat realistic mechs beating the crap out of beam sword wielding tossers but it still managed to make me lose interest. DP just looks better and hard to predict.

>>121515016
Those were the hits.

Now tell me how much Btooom! and everything else from 2014 sold?
>>
>>121514561
It's flopping retard, and it doesn't have the noitaminA excuse where it can live off ratings instead of sales.
>>
>>121515016
NGNL didn't even mean double G's, Mahouka only pulled a simple 11k and that's pathetic since people were insisting it was going to be the next SAO, and DN is their only really successful show both Japan and America ever.

***PASTA FOR PEOPLE TOO STUPID TO UNDERSTAND THE SHOW***

The void/reincarnation system is based off of how the pair act once they reach Quindecim. Their life memories have no influence on this except to provide context. To wit:

Death Billiards: Going from the game, the young man was going to get voided, but the based old guy stepped in and asked to be voided in his place.
EP 1-2: The husband was pretty nasty during the game and there was some arguing, but the woman's outburst at the end gets her voided because Decim was too autistic to understand that she was faking. This is why Nona is so mad at him and appoints Onna as his assistant.
EP 3: Both of them are civil and kind during the game. Neither of them did anything wrong, thus they both get reincarnated.
EP 4: The woman loses it during the game and physically assaults the otaku. In addition to this, she's clearly ungrateful when her special attack involving her kids doesn't do enough damage. The otaku does defend himself by getting back up and trying to win, but whether or not you consider that wrong he was still the more civil and kinder during the game. Hence, the woman is voided. This is probably the single greatest evidence for the "only the game matters" system.
Ep 5: ---
Ep 6: We don't know what happens to Mayu and the idol yet, stop fucking asking. Given her place in the OP though, she's probably here to stay.

Also, for the last fucking time, the system has little to do with Buddism, if anything at all. The void is not Nirvana, it's explicitly stated in promotional material that it is a bad place.

Gintama is one of, if not the most overrated anime ever made based on the MyAnimeList ratings. It relies way too heavily on referencial humor, and the writing repeats itself to the point of sheer tedium.

You're just making shit up.
It could be argued that the women with all the kids doesn't get voided.
That is what is nice about the series, that they keep it ambiguous (excluding episode 1). Knowing exactly what happens to the players is unimportant.
