Having noped my way out of the manga quite some time ago, I’m definitely curious to see how an anime adaptation of Platinum End can work out, especially if it can smooth the edges a bit. The manga from Takeshi Obata and Tsugumi Ohba, creators behind Death Note and Bakuman, began the series in the fall of 2015 and have thirteen volumes out to date. Viz Media simulpublishes the series monthly and has twelve volumes out of the manga as of the first week of January 2021.
The anime adaptation, slotted for a fall 2021 season, debuted a promo below to tease it. Hideya Takahashi is directing the series based on the series composition by Shinichi Inotsume. Koji Odate is adapting the character designs with Signal.MD set to handle animation production.
