Give” hope to live ”
The boy met an angel, then he got a power to kill human.
Beginning a battle that stake human’s world and life following the “Death Note” !!
Mirai Kakehashi, who lost his family in an accident, lived with his aunt’s family.
Losing the energy to live due to the terrible abuse of his aunt’s family, he jumped off the rooftop of his condominium and committed suicide on the day he graduated from junior high school.
However, on the verge of crashing into the ground, the angel Nasse saved his life and gave him the power of an angel.
Nasse also tells him, “There are 12 other people who have been given similar powers. From among them, we will select candidates for new God within the deadline of 999 days.”
At the final part of Ohba and Obata’s previous work “Bakuman。” , there are keywords similar to this work such as “Angel” and “Wings”.
It is speculated that Ohba had ideas for “Platinum End” work from this time.
In this work, it is a story of human and angels, and an angel ring also appears, but it is drawn with a simple geometric motif rather than a ring with finely decorated Gothic style.
This is a dark fantasy like Ohba and Obata’s first work “DEATH NOTE“, but “DEATH NOTE” had the theme of “evil” and “death”, whereas the theme of “Platinum End” is expected to be “happy”.
Also, “DEATH NOTE” and “Bakuman。” Was serialized in the weekly magazine, but “Platinum End” is serialized in the monthly magazine and is well worth reading each episode, and it is the development of the story following the next month’s magazine.
