Based on the manga series written by Tsugumi Ohba and illustrated by Takeshi Obata, the team behind Death Note and Bakuman, the Platinum End anime series has amassed a huge fanbase since premiering in October. A special stage event was held during Jump Festa on December 18, 2021.

 

The 40-minute stage performance was led by Miyu Irino (Mirai Kakehashi), Yui Ogura (Nasse), M.A.O. (Saki Hanakago), Natsuki Hanae (Revell), and Kaito Ishikawa (Kanade Uryu). Each of the actors and actresses share their favorite scenes and were asked some tough questions by the original authors of the series.

Comment from Vocalist Setsuko

“Will the candidates who were meant to die survive, and where will they end up? This is a heavy story, and as it moves towards its conclusion things get even more difficult to fathom. We wrote the song while remembering that this will be the final track fans of the series hear, so we wanted to capture those emotions. In writing the lyrics, I didn’t want to make them too blunt or defined, so each person will have their own interpretation.” 

 

Platinum End is getting more and more exciting as it hurdles towards the end, so be sure to tune in!

    17.January.2022 | ANIME&GAME

    Platinum End has been a smash hit. Based on the manga series written by Tsugumi Ohba and illustrated by Takeshi Obata, the team behind Death Note and Bakuman, the anime series will see its exciting conclusion in March 2022. Two new characters are being added to the cast before the big finale!

     

    Masaya Hoshi will be played by Hiroshi Tsuchida, known for dubbing Lee Byung-hun’s Front Man in Squid Game and Lightning McQueen in Cars.

     

    Manami Yumiki will be portrayed by Yui Ishikawa, known as the voice of Mikasa Ackerman in Attack on Titan and Violet Evergarden in Kyoto Animation’s Violet Evergarden.

     

    Comment from Hiroshi Tsuchida (Masaya Hoshi)

    “This role is so impressive that I can’t stand still while standing at the microphone. I’ve also noticed that our hairstyle and glasses seem to have become even more similar during recording…

    I’ll try to do my best to change my stupidity into intelligence so I can perform the role of Masaya Hoshi properly.” 

     

    Comment from Yui Ishikawa (Manami Yumiki)

    “Although this is a fantasy world, there are so many realistic characters. It makes you feel like this really could be happening somewhere. While reading the original story, I enjoyed it, but I also felt as though I was being questioned about something. 

     

    The character I play, Yumiki, is a detective at the Metropolitan Police Department. Please look forward to seeing how our new characters interact with the candidates for God!”

    Comment from Kobato Miku (BAND-MAID)

    “I read JUMP comics on a daily basis, so it feels like a dream come true that BAND-MAID could be involved in this project-po. Beyond that, I read Platinum End from start to finish, so I feel so honored and happy that we were chosen to perform the opening theme-po. I hope our song will energize the world of Platinum End-po.”

     

    Comment from Miyashita Yū

    The mystery of the original series, the transition from despair to hope, the core strength and courage of the protagonist’s heart and whatnot – I was conscious of each of these feelings as I performed my song. The song tells of the divine and yet powerful, of how even through pain, we can look towards the present, the future, and even the world. It was hard work blending in the superimposed voices throughout the track to suit the song and lyrics, so I would be greatly happy if you could pay attention to them.
