"This is a story of a human and an angel."


This year's 44th issue of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine will reveal on Monday that manga creator duo Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata (Death Note, Bakuman.) will launch a new manga titled Platinum End in the December issue of Shueisha's Jump SQ. magazine on November 4.


From the makers of Death Note and Bakuman, I'm pretty excited about this one tbh.



So glad I have a subscription to Shonen Jump. Now I can keep track of this series!

First chapter and prologue are out now.

Got a lot of potential with this given the amount of context, supernatural themes (+ angels), artworks style, and storytelling. Mirai's ability to shoot those arrows is a deadly power but why do I have a feeling that he might be corrupted? Weird start but let's see how far this can go.

Well that was....generic.
Was expecting something more from the creators of Death note.
But hey, not going to judge everything on 1 chapter.

I don't think "generic" is the right word, since this series hasn't conformed to a particular genre yet.
My first though was:
This series is literally reverse Death Note. Swap the ugly shinigami with a cute angel. Swap the super genius MC with a perfect life for an average MC with a terrible life. Swap the supernatural entity's motivation of boredom and apples for a Mirai Nikki-style contest. Swap instant death for love.

Chapter 1

Oh my god....

First off, this chapter is a very, and I mean a VERY interesting start to this series. Second, the art....oh my god....no they didn't....the art is just amazing; holy-shit. So, the character designs are very similar to that of Death Note, but that's just a given due to obvious reasons, but just the details of it is what gets me. The amount of detail that was put in was just fantastic and I was entertained by it. The concept is similar to Death Note as well, but I believe there is more to it and perhaps there will be a twist to it later, which would be nice. I have to admit that I am a sucker for the Supernatural genre and that includes all things including spiritual and godly (I guess that's why I like Bleach and Yu Yu Hakusho so much), so seeing the mechanics of the powers in this series was really nice as well. Again, I believe there is a deeper meaning within the powers, but I could be wrong; who knows! The story seems interest enough to grab someone in and wanting more as I am wanting more myself. The same with the main character since he even gained development in this chapter, so I want to see what awaits him. Basically, this was a great start to a series that has potential and I am looking forward for more!!

Chapter 2 is out.

Seems there are 13 angels and more abilities related to arrows like one that can kill others using the arrow. One of them died as well. For some reason, the plot is starting to remind me of a bit of Mirai Nikki because of the endgame goal to achieve status of God.

MC even has an amoral female companion, to boot.

I stumble on to "Platinum End" manga. It's interesting so far & I haven't read or watch "Death Note" before.
