Soon, the flames will fade. Even now, there are only embers.
I've read the posts that discuss the Shinigami's role of judging human souls through their cinematic records, and seeing who is worthy of being saved or spared. How exactly do they know who is worthy, and who is not? Do any of the Shinigami or their bosses/higher-ups have the power of future sight, or do they just make their own judgement calls? Are they making mistakes by doing that?
