Shinigami-kun (Ohno Satoshi), alias grim reaper #413, is a rookie, who pronounces the death of those scheduled to die and brings souls to the nether world. He would appear with the signature phrase “Congratulations! I’m here to call on you”, although it is hard to say how this can be a happy occasion, and watch over the dying. To a grim reaper, persuading people attempting to commit suicide and preventing unforeseen deaths is also an important task. But because #413 is new to this grim reaper work, he has a tendency to lean towards humans in his judgments, break the rules of the nether world and get reprimanded by his superior.

Finished watching Shinigami Kun recently. Personally, I felt that the story was interesting with unexpected twist in each episode. The plot was somewhat similar to death note but this drama emphasis more on the weakness of a human while facing difficulties in life.

In each episode, there will be different scenarios of a person who is going to passed on few days later. Then, Shinigami-kun will be there to assist and grant any last wishes the person might have while Akuma will appear later on to distract the entire situation attacking a human's weaknesses. I was rather amazed by the smart plot in certain episode with unexpected twist which I never thought of.
