Part of the 2013 Anime Mirai project, the Death Billiards short has now found itself being spun out into its own series in 2015 called Death Parade. With a new site open and a promotional video as well, the new production certainly stands out. The series is being produced at Madhouse with original creator Yuruzu Tachikawa set to direct. It’s unclear at this time whether others from the short will be returning for this project other than Tachikawa, who will be handling the scripts and storyboards for the project in addition to directing it.
Death Billiards Concept: An old and a young man find themselves in a mysterious bar where they have to play a game of billiard. The bet: their lives.
