A scan of the upcoming 44th issue of Weekly Shounen Jump magazine, to be released on Monday, revealed that manga authors Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata, known for their work on Death Note and Bakuman., will start a new manga series titled Platinum End. The series will debut in the December issue of shounen magazine Jump SQ, officially releasing on November 4. A special feature will premiere the beginning of the story in the 45th issue of Weekly Shounen Jump magazine on October 5.

Obata has been publishing manga under Shueisha's Shounen Jump label since 1998, debuting with his first major title Hikaru no Go. The pairs' most notable works are Death Note, which ran from December 2003 to May 2005, and Bakuman., which ran from August 2008 to April 2012. Both series received TV anime adaptations in 2006 and 2010, respectively.

Awesome. I like Obata sensei art more than his story.
So? Romantic comedy or Psychological?

Death Note and Bakuman both got a lot worse halfway through. Nevertheless, it's something to look forward to.

"This is a story of a human and an angel".
Can't really make any comments on the synopsis, but stick to anything the label of Death Note creators and I'll be hyped af no matter what. Can't wait, the genres inspire me already.
5 main aspects I base my ratings on:
1. Did DramaEnthusiast make a thread about it?
2. Is it better than Breaking Bad?
3. Did MellowJello recommend the shit out of it?
4. Has it caused a (very entertaining) shitstorm on MAL?
5. Is it actually good?

Scratch the fifth point, it's not very relevant...

Well he is pretty much only an artist and doesn't write stories :P Unless you mean you like Obata's art more that Ohba's stories, which in that case, my misunderstanding.

Interesting news, I'll be on the look out for this new series then.

Yea I've been waiting for those two to get together again on some new show.

Both DN and Bakuman were goats, so I'm hoping they deliver some good stuff again to the table.

Haha it's alright, everyone makes mistakes. I actually had to check Obata's MAL page just to make sure that he really hasn't done any stories, save for apparently something in an anthology.

Oh that's great! Was waiting for it for a while thinking they might never make another manga together. I guess it will be more like Death Note than Bakuman. (or maybe Reversi).

Yes! Yes! Yes! I've been waiting for another work from both of them. Glad it's come to fruition. I love Death Note and Bakuman; both in my Top 10 favourite anime and manga. I'm sure this will be just as good. Don't even mind it being published in a monthly magazine instead of weekly. So excited for it!

I'm very much excited :D

I wonder what the genre of the new series is. I can't tell based on the image. It would be interesting if a female was the main character, but that wouldn't really fit the targeted audience...

The synopsis consists solely of the sentence "This is a story of a human and an angel." Extremely vague, but intriguing nonetheless. If I had to guess at the genre, I would say Supernatural and Drama.
