Anime: Death Parade
Voiced By: Tomoaki Maeno
Occupation: Arbiter, Bartender
Background: Decim is the bartender of Quindecim and an acting arbiter for the dead.
Reason for CotM: I thought I would choose someone from my list of “preferred anime couples” or “unofficial anime couples”, but I decided to go for something different this month. Decim isn’t anyone extravagant, in fact he seems rather stone faced. However, over the past couple episodes of Death Parade you begin to see that behind that cold stare he does have a heart. He cares for the people around him, and for the ones he has to judge. Despite working for years he still has a sense of loyalty and compassion for humans. Although he may not be a lover, or even an interest in anyone’s eyes I wanted to choose him for the February character of the month. Who knows, maybe he’ll end up surprising us all in the end.
