One of the anime shows that interested many in the instance of its announcement is Platinum End which follows the candidates of who would be replacing God. Here is what is expected to happen once the first season ends and whether there would be a Season 2 for it.
Platinum End is based on the pages of the manga series of Tsugimi Ohba 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.
Platinum End is the story that 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.
