WARNING: The next accommodates spoilers for Platinum Finish Episode 15, “Diffused Power,” now streaming on Crunchyroll and Funimation.
For months, the highly effective God candidate Metropoliman/Uryu Kanade solid a protracted shadow over Platinum Finish‘s heavenly battle royale to resolve the world’s subsequent God. Throughout the earlier battle, nonetheless, Mukaido Nanato gunned him down — and perished within the course of. This left an enormous energy vacuum within the struggle, and now the younger Yuito Susumu seeks to fill it.
Susumu was the masked child who apparently stop Metropoliman’s group through the amusement park battle, however that had been a ruse. In Episode 15, the boy goes dwell on TV to clarify the battle royale to all of Tokyo and needs to get the general public concerned. For the younger Susumu, that is all a recreation — and he is prepared for the subsequent spherical of enjoyable.
Protagonist Kakehashi Mirai has lastly achieved short-term peace and after talking with Saki, he turns into satisfied that Nanato actually did die blissful. At first issues appear to get again to regular for Mirai and Saki, and the battle royale appears like a distant dream. Then a well-known face seems on the TV, and they watch because the youngest recognized God candidate makes his case to the world. This boy, Yuito Susumu, has a singular perspective on the complete God battle.
Susumu hadn’t been a mere lackey for Metropoliman. As an alternative, he was Metro’s boss and managed him with a crimson arrow, and now all of his sources are Susumu’s to command. In contrast to Metro, nonetheless, Susumu does not see match to straight problem Mirai and the opposite candidates on TV, nor does he threaten anybody’s life.
The boy sees all this as an thrilling recreation, and in contrast to the opposite God candidates, he wasn’t severely down on his life earlier than his patron angel, Penema, approached him. Susumu had merely lived a boring life the place nobody paid any consideration to him or performed with him, so this battle royale is his probability for some actual “playmates” eventually. All he desires is enjoyable — however that does not imply he is innocent.
Susumu’s second within the highlight is strictly what the distant, unknown God wants, whether or not or not the boy realizes it. Solely 800 days stay till the subsequent God should be chosen, and the six remaining candidates all refuse to combat any additional. They’re retaining their heads low and defending themselves, with considered one of them, an unnamed younger lady, taking a trip and distancing herself aggressively from the complete battle. No God could be chosen at that charge, however Susumu’s “game” could change issues up earlier than later.
After getting most people concerned within the battle by explaining all this on dwell TV, Susumu then encourages viewers to show the battle royale into an election. If he will get his approach, the subsequent God can be chosen in keeping with whomever society desires, and he even names Mirai, or “Red,” as his private favourite. It is clear that Susumu by no means meant for Metropoliman to win and grow to be God, and actually simply desires a peaceable however enjoyable decision to all this.
Fortuitously for Mirai, this implies nobody else has to get harm — however then once more, the Platinum Finish protagonist does not like changing into a goal like this, and he believes one thing horrible could quickly occur to him due to Susumu’s actions. The battle royale has grow to be a battle of wits, and Mirai and Saki is probably not prepared. They obtained outwitted by a sixth grader, and should quickly pay the value for it because the battle drastically adjustments course.
