Platinum End #MANGA


Review from me :

The first thing you must know about Platinum End is the creator. It’s come from the best duo-mangaka who make Death Note and Bakuman which is Takeshi Obata and Tsugumi Ohba. You guys should already know I’m a big fan of Bakuman, and Death Note is one of the most popular manga in history. This is one of the reason why this manga is worth to try. Platinum end is about a boy who attempt suicide on the evening of his middle school graduation but an angel help him from suicide, give him ‘magical’ power and make him her god candidate. The story start from there.


  • Art, for me, this is the best that Obata can give between all of his series, and also one of the best manga art I’ve ever seen.
  • Story, background of story is interesting, like survival game, mind-battle against others, and also has a few of drama element which make the story better and enjoy to read.

  • Lacks of excitement, this is one of the most important element in Ohba’s work. Platinum End need genius rival-character like L or Niizuma Eiji to make this series more interesting and exciting.
  • Character, all of character in this series is too mediocre, and not interesting at all.


Too bad in this series, Ohba’s quality can’t follow Obata’s amazing art quality. I always have a ‘very big’ expectation from Ohba because he’s one of my most favorite story-writer, even though Platinum End’s story is somehow good, but it’s a downgrade from Death Note and Bakuman. I’m not saying the story is really bad, but it’s not brilliant like his usual work. I hope Platinum End will be more interesting in the future because it has potential.

Score :

  • Story : 6/10 
  • Art : 10/10
  • Character : 6/10
  • Enjoyment : 7/10
  • Overall : 7.25/10
