Looks like we only have one more God Candidate unaccounted for. Whoever this missing piece is, he or she will be the one to mess everything up for everyone.
It wouldn’t even be surprised if that last Candidate is under Susumu’s control. Mirai got a little friendly with Susumu there which I feel was a big mistake. We’ll see if their plan of getting all the God Candidates together would even work.

About Platinum End
Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata created the manga series Platinum End. It was serialised in Shueisha’s Jump Square monthly magazine from November 2015 to January 2021.
It is a series about a student named Mirai Kakehashi who attempts suicide but is saved by his guardian angel, Nasse, who not only promises to protect him but also bestows special powers upon him because he is one of 13 candidates chosen by various angels to take on the role of God, who will retire in 999 days.
Recap of Platinum End Episode 17
Platinum End Episode 17 manages to delve into some intriguing philosophical area without dragging the audience down with excessively long or dull discourse. The episode demonstrates how the series can both entertain and terrify audiences with its occasionally cerebral storytelling and dramatic confrontations.
The majority of this week’s plot revolves around Mirai and Saki’s interactions with the newest god candidate they’ve identified. While not a direct threat like Metropoliman, this contender may cause our protagonists some philosophical headaches. The individual’s distinctive pro-suicide views are the source of this intellectual conflict.
It’s amazing how original and well-thought-out their arguments are. The point of view provides some compelling logical arguments about humanity and how we interact with and judge others through the lens of our own interests. Platinum End Episode 17’s plot is dominated by this conversation, which makes the episode as entertaining as a much more action-oriented adventure. The discussion serves as a reminder of how much of morality is based only on our perspectives. Even if you are fully opposed to them, it is always interesting to see new perspectives on moral matters.
After the moral argument has died down, Mirai and Saki focus their efforts on assembling the other God Candidates in the hopes of reaching an amicable agreement on who will be the next God. The duo sets out to make contact with two other prospects who are already known to them.
Meanwhile, the quest for the final candidate, who is still unknown to everyone, continues. Given the show’s few glances of this final contender and how they appear to feel about the competition, it’s unclear how the show will manage to bring her into contact with the rest of the competitors.
Platinum End Episode 17’s graphic approach expertly conveys this dialogue-driven tale to the audience. While it never achieves anything spectacular, it conveys each moment to the spectator in such a way that the back-and-forth talks, as well as brief location scouting, are always apparent and easy to follow.
After all is said and done, Platinum End Episode 17 manages to go into some intriguing philosophical area without dragging the audience down with too long or dull conversation. The episode demonstrates how the series can both entertain and terrify audiences with its occasionally cerebral storytelling and dramatic confrontations.
