Platinum End Season 1 Plot: What Can It Be About?
‘Platinum End’ is the third collaborative work published by Ohba and Obata after ‘Death Note’ and ‘Bakuman.’ The inaugural season will likely depict Mirai losing his parents and being forced to live with his abusive uncle and aunt. He might gradually succumb to depression and try to kill himself. This is when Nasse will probably make her first appearance to reveal to Miral that she has chosen him to be one of the 13 candidates to replace God in 999 days. She might bestow upon him several tools, including angel wings, with which he can travel to anywhere at an astounding speed; a red arrow, which can make a person fall in love with the wielder for 33 days; and a White Arrow, which causes instantaneous death.
If Mirai uses the Red Arrow on his aunt, he will learn that she and her husband were behind his parents’ deaths. He might also figure out how potentially dangerous these tools can be. As the series progresses, he might discover that he can’t refuse to be a competitor and will be forced to fight against the other chosen individuals, many of whom will probably have no moral issue about killing other people.
One by one, the other 12 angels and their god candidates will probably be revealed in the first season. Mirai might develop romantic feelings for fellow candidate Saki Hanakago. Mirai and Nasse might ally with Saki and her angel Revel to fend off more ruthless and deranged candidates, including Kanade Uryu.
