The creators of Death Note are working on a new manga series called Platinum End. I'm a anime twitter personality so I try my best to stay up to date with any news I hear whether it's about anime, manga, or comics. Now, I don't know much about this one so far because the only information I've been able to get was a one line description.
"The story revolves around the relationship between a human and an angel."
This isn't much lol but here's a few predictions. It could be a similar story to Death Note where boy meets entity and all hell breaks loose from there. I'm sure the theme will be a dark one since the author usually tends to lean towards tragedy. Death Note interested me because that's probably something I would do if I had a death note, take justice into my own hands. I'm sure I'm not the only one.
If anyone knows me, they know I'm a huge fan of anything that has to do with angels. Supernatural season 4 is a personal favorite lol. Growing up in a Catholic Hispanic home, I've always viewed angels as protectors who watch over mortals. The manga's story could well be about an angel watching over the boy and protecting him from harm which I'd love to see. Throughout the years, I've done some reading in both fiction and non-fiction works and they usually portray angels as guardians who vanquish evil and do the work of God. I've even read some lore about a race called the Nephilim which are made by angels being intimate with humans. The result is a powerful being, usually more power than your average angel and of course stronger than a human. I've once read a series where a certain category of angel saw the Nephilim as an abomination and sought to wipe them out. This could also be an interesting outcome of Platinum End. It could be about a boy falling for an angel or vise versa and having to protect their offspring from the forces of evil or even their own kind.
Whatever they case may be, I'm excited. I enjoyed Death Note so much and though the anime was too short for my taste, I still had a great time watching. I'm sure this will be an awesome series and I can't wait to read it.
If you guys are interested in anime/manga/comics pics or any news related to it, feel free to follow me on Twitter. A fair warning to all new comers, I tweet a lot and will probably flood your feed with anime pics but I have almost 3000 followers so it can't be too bad lol. I've created tags such as #CosplayDoneRight which showcase a variety of cosplays and #PervsUnite which features hot anime chicks. I've even started a version for the ladies because they were jealous my male followers were having all the fun so I started #AnimeGuysForFangirls lol. Enjoy and thanks for reading.
