Synopsis

After the death of his parents, a young Mirai Kakehashi is left in the care of his abusive relatives. Since then, he has become gloomy and depressed, leading him to attempt suicide on the evening of his middle school graduation. Mirai, however, is saved by a pure white girl named Nasse who introduces herself as a guardian angel wishing to give him happiness—by granting him supernatural powers and a chance to become the new God.

In order to earn the position, he must defeat 12 other "God Candidates" within 999 days. Soon, Mirai begins a struggle to survive as a terrifying battle royale erupts between himself and the candidates looking to obtain the most power in the world.

Simply put, Platinum End is a story about a boy who commits suicide, but is saved by an angel so that he may participate in a battle royale to become God.

Disclaimer: Platinum End takes a very cynical view on the concept of God. If you love listening to Pastor Dave preach every Sunday, I would not recommend this to you.

Tl;dr
Platinum End is philosophical and presents interesting questions on the role of God, but suffers from a lack of character depth. However, I thought it was interesting and I think you should give it a chance and read with the ...

Mixed Feelings
With the philosophical themes involved, you read on, anticipating an ending that'll knock your socks off and leave you thinking about the character motivations and choices. Y'know, like Death Note. Because it's from the guys who made Death Note. That's probably the only reason anyone would go out of their way to read this.

The characters are a fairly dull lot. For the majority of the manga, they act like they're in a haze; devoid of emotion or ambition, they just kinda suffer along for the ride. The main characters always have this dead look in their eyes, too. They did kinda give up the ...

Platinum end is a bizarre manga, and an interesting failure.

Story (3/10): The plot of platinum end starts out as a death game/sentai parody. It's an exaggerated action manga that is played mostly serious. It has its moments but ultimately just feels over the top in its set pieces and gore, with a cast bizarre side characters who don't last very long. They aren't entertaining and some are just unpleasant to read about, namely the 'ugly' guy and the 'disease' girl.

However half way through there is a direction change, and the plot becomes more of a slow paced political thriller with some moral and philosophical arguments. ...
