Good morning my loyal Painkillers, anime fans, and newbies to the site. Welcome to the latest edition of Saturday Morning Cinema.
On Sunday.. Thank you Chairman..
Today I have a short, but really cool movie for you today, and when I mean short, its the lenght of an episode. Question for you guys, how good are you at Billiards/Pool? Are you good enough that you would be willing to play a game that would decide if you end up in Heaven or Hell? Well then, let’s see how it play out in the movie Death Billiards.
The movie opens up with a mysterious bar called Quindecim. Inside the bar a woman with dark hair greets the “guest”, and the bartender convinces the “guest” to play a Death Game. The game is chosen by spinning a roulette wheel, landing on Billiards. Its a game of 8-ball, but it is not a regular game. The players find this out the hard way. Who wins, you have to watch and find out.
This short is really good, and it leads to a cool anime series known as Death Parade. I plan on telling you about that anime, coming up on the next Anime Wednesday. I couldn’t find a streaming service that carried Death Billiards, but you can find a good copy of it on YouTube. Check it out, and let me know what you think. Until next time everyone!
