Takeshi Obata and Tsugumi Ohba (Death Note, Bakuman) launched the Platinum End manga in Shueisha's Jump SQ. magazine in November 2015. Shueisha published the 13th volume in Japan on September 4.
Viz Media has been publishing the manga simultaneously in English digitally since the manga's launch. The company also publishes the manga in print and will publish the 12th volume on January 5. The company describes the first volume:
As his classmates celebrate their middle school graduation, troubled Mirai is mired in darkness. But his battle is just beginning when he receives some salvation from above in the form of an angel. Now Mirai is pitted against 12 other chosen humans in a battle in which the winner becomes the next god of the world. Mirai has an angel in his corner, but he may need to become a devil to survive.
The two creators serialized Death Note from 2003 to 2006 and Bakuman. from 2008 to 2012, both in Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine. Viz Media publishes both in North America. Both manga have inspired anime and live-action adaptations.
Update: The website for the Jump Festa '21 event is listing that the manga will have a stage presentation with a "news flash" as part of the "Jump Studio" stage events on December 19 at 2:40 p.m.
