From the creators of Death Note comes another tale of moral ambiguity and complex philosophical conundrums that truly captures the horrific side of human nature in its entirety. Written by Shin’ichi Inozume, Platinum End is one of the rare supernatural thrillers that keep viewers on the edge of their seats and challenge them with unexpected twists and turns in each episode. If the mind boggling show with all its suspense and drama has got your attention as well, and you wish to watch other somewhat similar shows, then you have come to the right place. Here are a few anime that every Platinum End fan must watch.

Death Note

Death Note is arguably one of the best psychological thriller series ever created, so it’s tough to recommend a show for Platinum End fans without mentioning it- knowing that it is also based on a manga written by Tsugumi Ohba. The show revolves around a now immortalized mind game between two of the smartest characters from the anime world. While Light Yagami, a young adult who gets a Death Note, wants to create a world free of criminals, his arch-enemy L is a legendary detective who will stop at nothing from preventing Light from becoming a God-like figure who runs the world as per his whims and fancies.

The Promised Neverland

Based on a Japanese manga series written by Kaiu Shirai and illustrated by Posuka Demizu, The Promised Neverland is a dark fantasy thriller that, like Platinum End, pushes its viewers to expect the unexpected. The show follows orphans living in Grace Field House, who are taken care of by their caretaker- Isabella. While the innocent kids call her “mom,” Emma, Norman, and Ray, the three most brilliant kids of the bunch, learn the harsh reality that they are just being raised to be fed to the monsters who pay a handsome sum of money for their brains.

It marks the beginning of an epic struggle between the twisted self-centered goals of their so-called mother and their desire to be simply free. If the psychological drama between the God candidate intrigued you, then The Promised Neverland will surely get you hooked.

Attack on Titan

Now, Attack on Titan may not strictly focus on the psychological warfare between its characters like other anime on the list, but the story still has jaw-dropping twists and turns that can leave the viewers awe-struck. Inspired by Hajime Isayama’s eponymous manga series, the dark fantasy anime centers upon a post-apocalyptic world in which humans have built giant walls to protect themselves from colossal humanoid flesh-eating Titans. While the people have learned to fight back, the giant monsters are still a frightening force that easily dominates them in a one-on-one confrontation.

A young boy named Eren Jaeger is one of the thousands of people who have lost their loved ones to the Titans, but unlike others, the hot-headed and determined protagonist vows to bring an end to the continuous war by killing every single flesh eating monster that he confronts. Unfortunately, his mission soon takes a dark turn when he learns the harsh reality of the cruel world that he inhabits.
