Candidate For A New God – Platinum End Ep 1 Review

Mirai Kakehashi has been driven to his brink by society. A guardian angel named Nasse appears to tell Mirai he is now a candidate to become god of their world.

Platinum End is very divisive in the manga community.

While I would like to give the anime adaptation a fair chance, I fear the series will shape up to be as boring and uninspired as its source material.

Will Attack on Titan Have An Anime Original Ending? 

Will AoT have an anime original ending due to the anime taking place in a timeline different than the manga series? This is my last cope regarding this story.

Update for 01/13/2022 – Hey everyone, since this post consistently gets a lot of traffic I just wanted to mention that I’m pretty sure we are getting an Anime Orignal Ending, and I’m working on a huge theory post with evidence.

If you’re interested, you can check out my thoughts on Jean and Mikasa‘s OVAs to see my research process and where I’m going with all of this. ☺

Stop Idolizing These People

Just a friendly reminder that criticism is healthy for a fandom, and to stop idolizing these people you do not know.

So as usual, I was going to write this a few days ago. But then stopped myself because I felt that I was being too harsh.

Was Zeke Targeted by Tom Ksaver to Inherit the Beast Titan?

Was Zeke Yeager targeted to inherit the Beast Titan the same way Grisha Yeager was to inherit the Attack Titan from Eren Kruger?

This is an Attack on Titan theory that contains mild – moderate manga spoilers (from ch. 121 onward).

So for a few years now, there has been this persisting theory: The Owl and The Beast Titan Tom Xaver were working together the whole time.
