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. [Written by MAL Rewrite]

Key visual looks interesting, I'll watch.

As other people mentioned, I've also thought of Mirai Nikki lol

The art and background music looks and sounds good so far. I'm going to keep on a lookout for more teasers/trailers and decide if this is worth the watch or not.

Read the manga cause Ohba/Obata like everyone else and I can only agree with a lot of the comments here. This isn't even remotely on the level of Death Note or even Bakuman.

I don't like the manga so far but maybe the anime will be a bit more entertaining, idk. It's not what I'd consider straight up bad but certainly not what I'd expect from Ohba and Obata.

How many chapters are there currently? I stopped reading it ages ago and I'm just curious how behind I actually am
57 and look like the ending is coming

Not that much then, I'm almost halfway through

I'm a little excited for the anime but the truth is that the last arc was kinda disapointing. So idk where this serie goes. Bakuman and Death Note are amazing, but I can't say the same about PE (yet).

I dropped it long ago. For me this was medicore and boring manga.

Dec 19, 2020 10:35 AM by Taito10

Back when this manga started I wanted to read it but kinda forgot, But now its getting an adaptation lol so yay!

Dec 19, 2020 9:28 AM by Biisoo

I'm genuinely surprised about how I've never even heard of this manga before, especially considering the team working behind it.

Dec 19, 2020 8:37 AM by TitanInsane

I'll probably give this a look, but compared to Bakuman and Death Note, this seems a little weak

Dec 19, 2020 7:50 AM by NG_Chloe

Defiantly didn't expect that.

The art in the manga is good to look at but unfortunately there is nothing else that is offered hence why i dropped it. The staff look decent but it's not enough to draw me in, i will keep an open mind tho.

Dec 19, 2020 5:54 AM by Itz_moneyez

Yep def one of the weakest works of the famous mangaka duo. Still happy for them and might check the anime if it comes to good review. For now I'll stick with the manga.
