Death Note creators land anime order for new series, Platinum End
Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata have created a stimulating world in Death threat, the story of Light Yagami discovering the notebook with the ability to steal the lives of those who have deemed it worthy of death, and it looks like the pair of anime creators are testing their world-building skills again with their new Serie End Platinum. The series, which has a very different concept to its predecessor but looks just as breathtaking, will receive an animated adaptation based on the events of the manga that ended earlier this year.
If you are not familiar with End Platinum, the story revolves around a young man named Mirai who is dragged into a deep depression when his parents die and he is forced to care for his wicked parents. Saved from a suicide attempt by a being claiming to be his guardian angel, the protagonist embarks on a journey that will force him to fight twelve other candidates to become the new god of his world. Be hosted by animation studio Signal.MD, which had previously worked on series such as Progressive FLCL, it’s clear that End Platinum has big shoes to fill as a spiritual successor to Death threat.
Twitter user Manga Mogura shared details on when End Platinum the anime will arrive on the small screen, which will debut later this year, and adapt the entire series released via Shonen Jump:
The TV anime adaptation will air from October 2021 to March 2022 and will adapt the entire story of the manga. https://t.co/S0fQkXvWcX
