Instead of a Death Note, we get Angel waifus.

I tend to say it's quite a generic, boring anime. Nothing compared to komi or ranking of kings.

avatar

Can't believe this is a work of Ohba Tsugumi, writer of Death Note. It was very disappointing. This anime was entertaining up to Metropoliman's arc but after that the entire plot felt like an unnecessary stretch. Even the ending was stupid. It started off with all that negativity that the second half almost felt like a "Slice of Life". I'll only recommend this to someone if they've nothing better to watch.

By the creator of Death Note, Platinum End is a series that is like his predecessor, a series of a philosophical genre before being a series of a psychological thriller genre. I admit I had a hard time with the first 10 episodes of the series, I'm not saying it was bad, but there was nothing original in its setting. I started to be surprised and intrigued by the show during [spoiler]the fight between Metropolitan and the other candidates (the last fight with him)[/spoiler]. After that, the series started to be really captivating, especially when Doctor Yoneda appeared. The philosophical debate about [spoiler]god and his role was extremely interesting, if it turns out to be true, it calls into question many things[/spoiler]. For me the ending is perfect, [spoiler]it brings a lot of answers and also brings a lot of questioning, which in my opinion should not be answered[/spoiler]. If there would be a season 2 (unless it is really excellent) I would be really disappointed. I really like this kind of series where we focus more on the essence behind the reason to fight, rather than on the fight itself. If you liked Death Note and Code Geass, this show has a great chance to please you.

For me, the first and the last epis were the best. The episodes between those are relatively slow and full of talks. The last 5 or 6 epis are filled with discussions that could be removed...

I am Sophie and this is my website.

A little about me πŸ‘‹ I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter πŸ™ˆ

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.

Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
