Platinum End Episode 2 Spoilers
In episode 1, Mirai looks back at some memorable moments of his past life when his parents were alive, and he wasn’t yet living with his abusive relatives. The happiness of those times is now replaced with depression and despair. With no hopes of a better future, Mirai heads to the top of a high-rise building and jumps without any regrets wishing he could have been happy. Luckily, just a few feet above the ground, an angel named Nasse catches him and saves his life.
Although Mirai just wants to be left alone and put an end to his miserable existence, his guardian angel promises to help him find a purpose in life so that he can finally be happy. She grants him the supernatural powers to fly anywhere and make people fall in love with him. After a brief tour of the planet, Nasse reveals the dark truth that Mirai’s uncle and aunty killed his parents for insurance money, and they did not die accidentally.
Shocked by the unexpected revelation, the protagonist heads immediately to his home, where he questions his aunt about his parent’s sudden death using his power of persuasion. Regretting her part in the heinous crime, she confesses that his uncle killed them for his greed. Unable to think clearly, Mirai tells her aunty to die, not realizing that she will take his words as an order and really kill herself.
Three days after the tragic incident, the protagonist is still struggling to process what happened with his aunt. When he opens up to Nesse about his financial woes, she advises the teenager to kill his uncle and his children to get their property. The guardian angel also reveals that he is now competing to become the next god, and in 999 days, he must defeat other God candidates to rule the world.
In episode 2, Mirai will begin to confidently use his supernatural abilities after finally getting over the unfortunate death of his aunt. He may meet another God candidate and begin to realize the true extent of the danger that lurks around him.
