platinum end anime

The anime adaptation of Platinum End, based on the manga by the creators of Death Note, debuts on Japanese TV October 7. Ahead of this a trailer has been released that lets us hear the opening theme song “Sense,” which is performed by BAND-MAID. We also learn in this trailer that the ending theme song will be called “Kōfuku-Ron” (translated as “Theory of Surrender”) and performed by singer Yuu Miyashita. However, we don’t get a chance yet to hear that song.

VIZ Media licensed the original manga by Takeshi Obata and Tsugumi Ohba and gave this description of its setup:

“As his classmates celebrate their middle school graduation, troubled Mirai is mired in darkness. But his battle is just beginning when he receives some salvation from above in the form of an angel. Now Mirai is pitted against 12 other chosen humans in a battle in which the winner becomes the next god of the world. Mirai has an angel in his corner, but he may need to become a devil to survive.”

In the anime, Miyu Irino plays Mirai Kakehashi, Yui Ogura plays Nasse, Natsuki Hanae plays Revel, M.A.O plays Saki Hanakago, Toshiyuki Morikawa plays Nanato Mukaidō, Ai Kayano plays Baret, Kaito Ishikawa plays Kanade Uryū, Kikuko Inoue plays Meyza, Tomoaki Maeno plays Hajime Sokotani, Hikaru Midorikawa plays Balta, Kaori Maeda plays Mimi Yamada, and Shōya Chiba plays Mizukiyo Minamikawa.

The anime is being directed by Hideya Takahashi (first series) and Kazuchika Kise (second series). The music is being composed by Masahiro Tokuda, who recently worked on Cestvs: The Roman Fighter.

Takeshi Obata and Tsugumi Ohba previously worked together on Death Note and Bakuman. Artist Takeshi Obata is about to launch a new manga series called Shōha Shōten!, which is being done with novelist Akinari Asakura.
