Platinum End Episode 11 Review – But Why Tho? A community of geeks


Reading time: 2 minutes

End Platinum is a dark fancy anime shonen produced by Signal.MD. With Revel increasing his Angel level, Saki got his own set of wings and quickly set out to save Nanato and Mirai. Upon arriving at the scene, she shot Hajime with a red arrow, causing him to fall in love with her. Now Hajime must choose whether he will fight for her or remain loyal to Metropoliman in Platinum End Episode 11.

With the effects of Saki’s red arrow hitting him, Hajime receives an revelation about his life, his worth, and what he needs to do to preserve it. That moment surprised me and created an interesting character moment that didn’t have to exist. While Platinum End Episode 11 Hajime could have based his actions solely on the mind-altering “love” induced by the influence of the arrow, the series goes one step further to come up with a rational reason for acting the way he does. While this reasoning is always fueled by the influence of the arrow, it has made the particularly questionable act of subverting someone’s free will a little more acceptable.

As the situation begins to play out, Metropoliman is compelled to act. Here we see a little different angle of the antagonist of the series. Until now, Metropoliman has always been the one to act on others. Things happened at times of his choosing. For the first time, he is forced to react to the actions of others. If the character is known to be an excellent strategist, it will be interesting to see whether or not he can be so smart when he hasn’t had time to fully stack the deck in his favor.

As the ensuing confrontation between our heroes and their nemesis takes center stage in Platinum End Episode 11, there is a major moment that belongs purely to Saki. Before the fight begins, we get one final glimpse of what Saki sees as the reason she got caught up in the fight between the divine candidates. The emotional reveal is a painful moment that further cements the sympathetic nature of her character.

The visual side of this episode does a great job of capturing the tension of the showdown that occupies the majority of the story. The high emotional levels of each are well presented. This helps the characters on the show stay engaging despite the over-the-top nature of its story.

With its strong emotional display, Platinum End Episode 11 introduces new elements to the series that perfectly match the often-deranged state of mind of the villainous elements of the series.

As the episode rushes to its conclusion, it leaves the viewer on an unforeseen cliffhanger that is sure to carry the episode’s high level of tension into next week’s story. While this series has seen its ups and downs, it looks like this story is looking to reach the middle of its season on a high note.

Platinum End Episode 11 is streaming on Funimation and Crunchyroll.
