Platinum End Episode 5 Spoilers
In episode 4, Metropoliman arrives at the Jinbo stadium right on time. He does not have to wait long for other God candidates to appear as Metro Blue and Yellow show up just moments later. They do not waste any time and shoot the Red arrow to make Metropoliman fall in love with them so that he can be controlled. However, to their surprise, their supernatural power does not work, and they realize that it is only possible if their adversary is already under someone else’s influence. While they try to figure out what he may be thinking, Metropoliman suddenly appears on the jumbotron and argues that the God candidate duo is too weak and the person wearing the suit in the middle of the stadium is just an ordinary man.
However, since they are standing with their backs to each other, there is no line of attack that would surprise them, which in turn makes the whole idea of going after them obsolete. So Metropoliman asks them to leave, but while they are contemplating their choices, a God candidate with no arrows suddenly appears and requests the duo to take her with them as she is afraid of getting murdered. When she tries to reach them, Metropoliman suddenly shows up and shoots a Red arrow right through her heart.
Metro Blue and Yellow realize that they need to do something and, in their desperation, ask other God candidates in the stadium to show themselves and join them. To their surprise, Metro Pink and Green surrender and are immediately shot by Red arrows by the duo. However, in this commotion, they don’t realize that the real Metropoliman has replaced the fake one in the stadium. As soon as he finds an opening, the God candidates shoot Metro Blue with a White arrow and Metro Yellow with the Red arrow.
While the former dies on the spot, he then ties the girl he kidnapped earlier with the latter and begins to torture them. He then kills Metro Yellow as well and forces the girl to beg for his life as Mikai and Saki stare at the horrific situation. In episode 5, before he can kill the girl, Mikai will take a stand and try to save her. However, he will find himself in a spot as his adversary is far more powerful than him.
