Platinum End Episode 17 title

Platinum End comes to us by the writers and creators of Death Note and Bakuman, Takeshi Obata and Tsugami Ohba. As if that wasn’t enough reason to get excited about this show, it is being directed by two prominent people in the anime industry. As it is a two-cour series, its first part is being directed by Hideya Takahashi, who has previously directed JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure Part 5. The second part is directed by Kazuchika Kise, the animation director behind Your Name and Neon Genesis Evangelion.

The series is being produced by Studio Signal.MD, the studio behind several well-known anime such as Recovery of an MMO Junkie and Mars Red. If you’d like to catch up on our review of the sixteenth episode, you can do so right here!

Platinum End Episode 17 Review- This Was Great!

shizuo Platinum End Episode 17

From its bare beginnings, this show has been preaching to the audience about “Happiness” and how it perceives the abstract concept of the same through its protagonist, Mirai Kakehashi. Its attempts have been insipid at best and downright embarrassing at worst. Whenever Mirai uttered “Shiawase” (Happiness in Japanese) in his lame attempts at avoiding violence for his own good, you want to strangle him for being a useless and stupid character that was painful to watch.

The worst part of it all was nobody called him out on his nonsense, and everyone who met him somehow agreed with him and went along with the goofiness. That resulted in a storyline that was limp and felt uneventful despite not being that bad. If only someone had put an end to his thought process, we probably would have had to suffer quite a bit less than we did. This time was different, however. This time, someone did call him out and tell him that his philosophy wasn’t any good in the real world. Just for that, this episode gets top marks.

God Candidates Platinum End Episode 17

Platinum End Episode 17 spoke about suicide in a terrific manner, one which delivered a measured take on both it and its victims. It introduced a well-written and well-spoken character who serves as a counterpart to both Susumu and Mirai in different ways. He is a great character so far, with understandable motifs and a somewhat relatable philosophy. Some would call him obsessed with suicide, whereas he actually was a big proponent of not being a burden on anyone but yourself. Platinum End has some great child characters in its cast.

The current direction of the show is fascinating. Now that Metropoliman is gone, it appears as if no one really wanted violence in the first place, and that’s the way it should be. Violence doesn’t appear to be something the creators of the source material are very good at, and this is just them playing at their strengths. However, there is something very fishy about the police officer couple, and it wouldn’t surprise anyone if they turned out to be bad.

Something else that’s less than perfect about the story is that the Angels should know far more than what they’ve told the candidates so far. Their involvement in this situation is weird and hasn’t been explored properly. There is still some time to do that. However, if we trust the show to explain them properly is a whole other story. The animation looked somewhat iffy in Platinum End Episode 17, although the sound remains immaculate. This was a good outing for the show.

Verdict

Platinum End Episode 17 was great and another one in the show’s now increasing list of quality episodes. It seems like it has finally found its groove, and sticking to it will be the best thing for it.
