Synopsis

Ever since he lost his family in an explosion, Mirai Kakehashi has lived a life of pain and despair. Every day, he endures abuse at the hands of the relatives who took him in. As his anguish steadily chips away at his will to live, he is eventually pushed to the brink. Prepared to throw it all away, he stands on the edge of a precipice and takes the leap. However, instead of falling to his death, he enters a trance where he meets a winged being who claims to be his guardian angel. Named Nasse, the angel offers him two priceless abilities and convinces him to go on living.

When Mirai experiences the marvel of his new powers firsthand, he gets a taste of the freedom that was locked away from him for so long. Armed with Nasse's gifts, Mirai is flung into a showdown with 12 other individuals, one of which will be chosen to become the next God. In stark contrast to when he wanted to end his life, Mirai is now prepared to do whatever it takes to protect his bleak chance at happiness, lest it be wrenched from his grasp forever.

*spoilers in a marked section*

In my experience, anime fans have absolutely no conception of what good or bad directing looks like. To most of them, “directing” is just a buzzword they can throw around in forums as a compliment or an insult toward a show they have nothing intelligent to say about, hoping anyone who reads their post will be similarly ignorant and think they actually said something substantive. Indeed, when most people like or dislike a show specifically because it was well directed or poorly directed, they’ll often attribute their like or dislike to other factors. Two of the best anime films ever made, read more

To put it plainly, Platinum End is… misunderstood.

There’s a lot to say about Platinum End – its concept and execution, its characters and their quirks and intricacies, its art and animation, its social commentary and outlooks – yet, Platinum End’s biggest flaws are Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata.

The two authors – story and art, respectively – of Platinum End. Chances are that nearly everyone that has read or watched Platinum End did so knowing, or perhaps solely for the reason that these two are the authors of Death Note. Platinum End will inevitably always live in the shadow of Death Note, considering its masterly writing read more

It seemed interesting, that’s the attitude I had towards Platinum End when I decided to watch this show. Now that’s it’s done, I’m probably better off to be honest. This had some promise early on, but quickly that sentiment left. Despite having a comparatively stronger second half, the ending does not make it worth it. Unfortunately, there isn’t much good to say about this show, so we’ll briefly go over it.

By the way, were you expecting something as good as Death Note? Ha ha.

My grading criteria: Story: /25 Art: /10 Music: /10 Characters: /20 Enjoyment /15 Thematic Execution /20

STORY: 2.5/25

The narrative started out pretty interestingly, read more

Yes, somehow I managed to finish Platinum End without smashing my computer. Somehow within a span of 24 episodes, this show managed to make me question the logics how creators brainstorm their ideas when writing a story. I don't want to dive too much into the juicy details so let's leave it to our imaginations. But to say the least, let's just say there's a whole lot of wrong in Platinum End with little done right.

Now I must digress that Platinum End has some rather sensitive topics. These includes subjects related to suicide, abusive relationships, bullying, and transgressive matters. This isn't the a cherry story read more
