Well, its based on the premise of heaven and hell. If someone goes to heaven it means that their soul will be reincarnated, and if they go to hell, their soul will be sent to void. Some people who die, however, arrive at the Quindecim after their death without being aware of the fact that they are dead. The bartender at Quindecim, named as Decim challenges those people with deadly games. He reveals their true nature so that he can judge whether they should go in void or be reincarnated.
Its pretty psychological and short. Its pretty much based on the concept of death like how its name suggests. There are flaws, no doubt, but its still enjoyable. I would definitely rank it above Death Note. Not as high as Code Geass though.
If you're going to watch it, be ready to watch one of the best openings (=
