Takeshi Obata and Tsugumi Ohba created Death Note and Bakuman, and both were successful manga that went on to land an anime adaption.
The partnership’s Platinum End will now receive the same treatment, and Pony Canyon and Signal.MD will adapt the series into an anime.
Viz Media have been publishing an English translation of the manga. You can pick up a copy at Comixlogy, with the latest being volume 12.
Viz describe Platinum End;
As his classmates celebrates their middle school graduation, one student’s mind seems to be elsewhere. His name is Mirai and he has a dark secret. All humans deserve to find happiness, but Mirai may need some salvation from above in the form of an angel.
The anime is due out on TV in Japan this winter, and we’re still to see whether a platform will pick it up for a Western audience.
