FIND THESE ANIMATES ON THE SITES OF ADN, WAKANIM & CRUNCHYROLL.
PLATINUM END (ADN, CRUNCHYROLL, WAKANIM)
Mirai is a melancholy high school student who, after years of loneliness, decides to end his life. As he prepares to throw himself from the top of a building, he is miraculously saved by Nasse, an angel.
This one has a very particular mission to entrust to him: to face 12 other competitors in the title of God whose reign will end 999 days later.
Note first of all that Platinum End is not just any manga adaptation. Taken from the work of the legendary duo of Death Note and Bakuman, Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata, the work was already convincing on paper. On the animation side, there is also the expertise of director Hideya Takahashi (JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure Golden Wind) and Kazuchika Kise (Ghost in the Shell Arise).
While scriptwriterally speaking, Platinum End is not as powerful as Death Note, it possesses its darkness and violence, as well as its subversive dimension. Indeed, by tackling the delicate subjects of depression and suicide in adolescents, he puts his feet in the dish by pointing out problems often overlooked and which can lead to terrible tragedies.
The anime adaptation faithfully embraces the narrative of its authors and brilliantly transposes the darkened aspect of its story. The hero inherits the power to kill whoever he wants with a single arrow. From there, the authors make us reflect on our own existence and our free will. An anime with a very adult tone that will shake up your certainties.
TAKT.OP DESTINY (CRUNCHYROLL)
It all starts when a black meteorite falls on Earth. Monsters named D2 then emerge to annihilate us. As these creatures seem attracted to melodies, music becomes taboo. But opponents appear.
The Musicarts are girls who derive their power from music and can defeat the D2s. At their side, the conductors direct and guide them. It is 2047. The United States has been devastated by the fight against the D2. Takt, the conductor, and Destiny, the musician, travel to New York together.
Initiated by Bandai Namco Arts, Takt Op. Destiny was created by Ôji Hiroi (Sakura Wars) and can boast splendid animation, produced in Mappa (Jujutsu Kaisen, The God of High School) and Madhouse (One Punch Man, Overlord).
Between SF, action and fantasy, this original creation skilfully mixes combat and music, all in a very unique and hypnotic atmosphere. The first episodes give off a flying start to this anime which promises to be one of the great nuggets of this fall.
Atypical and refreshing, you just have to let yourself be carried away by this high quality visual and sound experience!
MUSHOKU TENSEI: JOBLESS REINCARNATION (WAKANIM)
A 34-year-old bachelor, lonely and unemployed, is chased away from his parents. With low morale, he plans to kill himself … until the day when, with a heroic gesture, he saves a former classmate who is on the verge of being knocked down.
The young man dies instantly, then finds himself reincarnated in the body of a child, the son of a swordsman and a former adventurer in a fantasy world. Determined to do something with his new life, he then tries to become the greatest magician in history.
Mushoku Tensei is an excellent isekai! Endowed with a superb animation and a remarkable staging, the work does not lack humor, playing with intelligence on its small side ecchi. In some ways, the anime is reminiscent of The Rising of the Shield Hero, another popular and high-quality anime of its kind.
The series will delight fans of fantasy in the first place but will also appeal to novices, eager to rub shoulders with this world filled with magic, tinged with psychology and romance. From the literary webseries Mushoku Tensei: Isekai Ittara Honki Dasu de Rifujin na Magonote, the work is also adapted in manga to the Doki Doki editions.
And after a first part praised by the public, a new round of episodes is currently being broadcast on Wakanim. This is the perfect time to embark on the adventure!
