I actually disliked the show first, but it gradually grew on me the more it developed. It's difficult for me to compare with Shirobako because that show holds a special place in my heart (l loved the last episode) and they're pretty much apples and oranges, but after watching the most recent episode of Death Parade I had the strong urge to recommend it above all else.
You implicitly calling it better than Shirobako certainly gained my attention. So I made a point to download and watch the first episode of Death Parade earlier today.
The first episode flowed well, the dart game was both horrific and a stroke of creativity genius, and the whole scenario in the first episode was pretty engaging.
I still would put Shirobako first out of the anime shows I'm watching right now, but Death Parade's 1st episode was a very strong start. I'll probably check out more episodes throughout the days to come.
If you're talking about the currently airing Exodus specifically, I'm not actually watching it since it's apparently a direct sequel to the 2004 TV series and 2010 film which I haven't seen. I did watch the first episode of the 2004 TV series a while back just before Exodus starting airing and I thought it was pretty good if a little overly dramatic to the point of narm at times (in direct contrast to Majestic Prince), but I ultimately never bothered to fully take it up. I do remember there being a fair bit of this. You have to see it to understand.
