‘Platinum End’ is a supernatural thriller manga written and illustrated by Tsugumi Ohba. Its original run started in November 2015 and ran through January 2021. It was picked up by the Japanese animation studio Signal.MD for an anime adaption that kicked off in October 2021. Originally, Crunchyroll began running the English dub, but Funimation recently announced that the show would run on their streaming service.
“If you’ve been waiting to jump into the thrilling suspense of Platinum End, we’re excited to announce that the series English dub is officially headed to Funimation on November 18 as part of the Fall 2021 anime season lineup,” they said on their website. “We’re just a few episodes into the Platinum End simulcast, and things are already getting intense for Mirai, Saki and their angel protectors as they duke it out with the other God Candidates in the latest anime from the creators of ‘Death Note.'”
They continued, “The English voice cast for the series include Alejandro Saab (Horimiya, The Irregular at Magic High School) as Mirai Kakehashi, Michaela Murphy as Nasse, Daman Mills (Dragon Ball Super, SK8 the Infinity) as Revel and Laura Post (Great Pretender, JUJUTSU KAISEN) as Saki Hanakago. The series voice-over is directed by David Walsh.”

Wikipedia describes the synopsis, “Mirai Kakehashi is a young orphaned high school student who lives with his abusive aunt and uncle after the death of his parents. One day, Mirai decides he cannot take it anymore and attempts suicide, but is saved by a Guardian Angel called Nasse, who also gives Mirai special powers. Upon learning from Nasse that his aunt and uncle were responsible for the deaths of his father and mother, Mirai uses the powers that she bestowed to him in order to enact justice upon them.”
They added, “This is only the beginning of Mirai’s story, however, as Nasse soon after informs him that God will retire in 999 days and thirteen candidates to replace him were selected, one of which is Mirai. To make matters worse, not only is Mirai forced to take part in the contest to decide the next God, but some of the other candidates will do anything to win, including killing all of the other candidates as soon as possible. To combat these ruthless killers, Mirai forms an alliance with several candidates who share his goal: to win the contest without killing any other competitors.”
