Platinum End is a supernatural drama manga written by Tsugumi Ohba and illustrated by Takeshi Obata. The series ran from 2015 till January this year under Shueisha’s Jump Square magazine, for a total of 13 volumes. The 14th and final volume is scheduled to release in Japan on February 4th. Ohba and Obata are a well-known mangaka pair, who both created the Death Note and Bakuman manga, in 2003 and 2008 respectively. Both series were well received and adapted into TV anime in the subsequent years.
Here is the series synopsis from MAL:
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.
A TV anime adaptation of Platinum End is in production and is scheduled to premiere this Fall, which generally begins in October.
