Must watch. "Each episode surprised me with the careful observation of humanity and human life. It expresses our desires, our beliefs, and who we value most. Death parade is more about humanity and what we did during our life. The show is very beautiful in a way in which human nature is defined." - smithnoah54, IMDb


Really nice anime, and very different from the usual scenarios.


Beautifully designed and masterfully shot. With every frame animated to perfection. Plays around the concept of death, the afterlife in a very interesting and meaningful way that ultimately helps it convey various memorable characters in its episodic nature.

About Me

I am Sophie and this is my website.

A little about me 👋 I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter 🙈

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.

Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
