Easily sliding itself to the top of the charts for the fall anime season is Platinum End with an interesting story of chosen candidates on who will be replacing God as he retires in almost a thousand days. As fans and viewers piqued a liking to the show, many are wondering whether the series would be dubbed in English and if so, when can the release date be expected for the dub?
The story of Platinum End follows Mirai Kakehashi who has been fed up living with abuse from his aunt and uncle after his parents died. A guardian angel, Nasse, saved him from taking his life and informed him that he got powers to get the justice she deserved from her aunt and uncle who were responsible for the death of his parents.
Nasse also revealed to Mirai that God will be retiring in 999 days and he was selected to be the replacement. It is a non-negotiable choice that she couldn’t say no to. Other competitors would kill to be the next God while Mirai forms an alliance to get the position without killing anyone.
Platinum End is based on the pages of the manga series of Tsugumi Oba with the illustrations of Takeshi Obata which started serialization in Shueisha Jump Square which spanned from 2015 until early this year which signifies the end of the manga.
