‘Death Note’ creators reunite for new manga ‘Platinum End’

Death Note and Bakuman creators Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata are reuniting for Platinum End, a new manga described as “a story of a human and an angel.”

According to Anime News Network, the official announcement will be made Monday in Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump. The manga is set to launch Nov. 4 in Jump SQ, following a special preview in Weekly Shonen Jump on Oct. 5.

Ohba and Obata first teamed in 2003 on Death Note, a supernatural thriller that became a worldwide phenomenon, inspiring a hit anime series, three live-action films and a live-action television series; another film is in development. Ending in 2006, the manga has more than 30 million copies in circulation.

The duo reteamed in 2008 for Bakuman, a slice-of-life story that follows two ninth-graders who aspire to become manga artists. Concluding in 2008, the manga sold more than 15 million copies and inspired three anime series and a live-action movie, which premieres next week in Japan. The conclusion of a two-chapter prequel to Bakuman will appear Monday in Weekly Shonen Jump.
