Shinigami no Ballad Anime Episode 1 Screen Caps

I hadn't had a chance to watch this anime before this last week, but with the live action series due to debut I finally got around to seeing it. C1 fan subs finished it way back in April of last year. All in all I enjoyed the series, it is episodic which I usually don't care for but in such a short series only six episodes it worked really well. That being said my favorite episodes were 1 and 6 and they were linked by a common character. It's a slow slice of life anime that really isn't horror even though it's about a Death God, but Momo and Daniel are so cute they couldn't be scary. I look forward to the light novel when it's released. Later I'll post the first chapter of the manga for you to see as well. Neither the manga not the anime have yet to be licensed in the US but hopefully someone will.

I've posted screen caps of the first episode below, and just past those a 1024 x 768 Shinigami no Ballad Wallpaper is available to download.

You can download the C1 anime fan subs here, Screen caps and bit torrent links for the live action series are here.

The opening and Episode 1 videos are posted at the end, thanks to YouTube for the video.
