Saki Kakehashi (架橋咲, Kakehashi Saki?), or Saki Hanakago (花籠咲, Hanakago Saki?), was the deuteragonist of the Platinum End manga series. She was the chosen God candidate of the angel Revel in the God choosing process.

Appearance[]

Saki in her signature suit

Saki was a young girl of below-average height with ear-length brown hair that fell just above her shoulders in a choppy fringe. She often looked timid, supported by her rounded face and gentle big brown eyes. In school, she wore the traditional uniform that consisted of a clean white shirt underneath the beige school blazer, a plaid skirt, and a pair of calf-length socks in school shoes. A matching green bow in a plaid pattern was secured around her neck.

When she first met up with Metropoliman, she donned a predominantly yellow motorsport costume that had been personally tailored by Nanato Mukaido to conceal her identity. Her suit was customized after a cat with a stealth-shield headgear that formed a pair of cat ears and a long tail at the back. Saki also used to wear a mask to conceal her face.

Personality[]

Saki is a rather timid individual and kind to a fault. She felt so bad about being pressured into bullying Mirai Kakehashi in elementary school, the guilt would drive her to commit suicide in high school.

After becoming a god candidate and making amends with Mirai, she's empathetic towards his struggles and those of other characters. While she does not want to kill anyone, she is more willing to manipulate people with the red arrow than Mirai.

When asked what she would do if she became god, Saki said, "The world that I hope for is one of smiles, where everyone is full of warmth and gentleness."

History[]

Saki had been friends with Mirai Kakehashi since they were children. One day, while at a park with Mirai Kakehashi and his family, Mirai found a four-leaf clover, pushing Saki to find one. In the end, after unsuccessfully finding one, Mirai gave his to her, upon that time a yellow ladybug landed on it, showing that happy times would be in their future together. After Mirai's parents died, and he was adopted by his abusive uncle and aunt, the kids at school began to pick on him due to his poor hygiene (due to his guardians pouring alcohol on him), all the kids at school began to make fun of him and pinching their noses. A reluctant Saki began to do this too, believing she was bullying him.

Plot[]

1st Series[]

On Saki's first day of high school, Revel identified Mirai Kakehashi as a god candidate and Saki promptly shot him with a red arrow.

Abilities[]

  • Wings – The wings allow Saki the "freedom" to fly anywhere in the world.
  • Red arrow – The red arrow has the power to force anyone who is shot with it to fall in love with the user for 33 days.

Relationships[]

Mirai Kakehashi[]

Mirai and Saki are childhood friends. Saki laid off from Mirai at the beginning of the manga, but she later discloses to Mirai that she felt guilty due to how she treated him in the past and wanted to apologize ever since. Afterwards, Saki is no longer timid around Mirai, and they have a closer relationship. In the later chapters, when Saki is under the effect of a red arrow, she claims that she loved Mirai even before she got pierced with a red arrow. Mirai rejects her and chooses to wait until the effect has worn off.

Revel[]

Revel is Saki's angel.

Etymology[]

  • The name Saki means "blossom" (咲).
  • Saki's surname Hanakago means "flower, blossom" (花) (hana) and "basket, cage" (籠) (kago).
