Interesting concept, feels like basically the flipside of death note. Angels instead of of Shinigami, and the ability to make people love you instead of murdering by use of a name. Considering who's writing it, it has high potential.
I'm already hating waiting for chapters though. The cliffhanger at the end of the last chapter has me wanting more.
He has the chance to become god after manipulating peoples' wills, forcing them to fall in love with him, and killing people with the same power as him. Any non-idiot would see something about that sounds off.
Nevermind the fact that psychologically, he's beaten down and he doesn't want to ask for much because he doesn't think he deserves much. He tried to kill himself in the first chapter, you think someone like that wants to participate in the game?
>>135883747 I just don't want to be dissapointed again. Death Notes second half and Bakumans "hurr the internet is evul!" arc made me drop both of these series, and it feels like spending the time reading the previous chapters was a waste of time.
>>135884305 It's not about being a Mirai Nikki rip off or anything, it doesn't matter if Mirai Nikki was the first or not. But you can't expect people to not compare edgy shit with similar topics. Same way you can't expect people to go into one of their new manga and expect it to be Death Note tier.
I can't really like it. I'm not sure where exactly it crosses the line, but it feels like any other "give some guy an artificially arbitrary powerset" fiction. I think Death Note did not feel that way because a) it focused on the psychological angle, with Light already being susceptible, and b) L existed, and was one of the stronger points of the story.
Platinum's MC is just a mannequin without very much personality to build upon, so whatever happens feels like it's there because of what the writer wanted, rather than a natural extension of what a character would do.
>>135884543 I feel like how he's nice in an relatively relatable way.
Usually when someone is "kindhearted" in manga it's telegraphed in incredibly dramatic ways like the person saving a girl from a group of bullies or rescuing a puppy from the rain but here it's shown by him having the opportunity to do a bunch of heinous shit and abstaining.
>>135884168 >maybe i'll give it a shot in a year or so after they decide what they want to do with the story so you do get it. and yet you judge it as bad when it's just starting. i'd say in 2-3 chapters we'll be able to tell wether this really has potential or not
>>135883854 Cant you, you know, just enjoy it while it lasts and is good and then drop it when it's stop being good? Can't you like things while they last and not be a depressed piece of shit that needs to look everything from the worst possible angle and dislike things because there is a possibility that in the far future it won't be as good as it is?
>stop liking what I don't like >stop saying that you don't like what I like I've only now realized that it's pointless for either side of the argument to care about the other let's discuss thins like how refreshing it is for an angel character to encourage murder and rape
>>135885738 In think so too and prefer the style of Death Note, but he himself considers it an improvement (he told the interviewer that he constantly "strives to get better" at a convention I went to).
>>135887335 But it does have a Mirai, that's the protagonist name.
Honestly I was surprised on how everyone missed the "Hurr, I'm God, I need to find a substitute, let's find some God candidates and pick one" subplot.
Anyway it felt very unoriginal, but also not extremely trash, the angel trying to make him happy by doing things that are completely evil by human moral standards like "Hurr kill your uncle and your cousins and get their money" or "Hurr just force that girl to love you for 33 days, that will surely make her love you for reals"
