    Perfection!!I watched the anime and now I'm starting to read the manga - both are spectacular! Anime is atmospheric and beautifully done, with amazing production value and great soundtrack (that's been stuck in my head for days now).Manga is detailed, beautiful and fast paced. Also - the whole thing is pretty Dark. In the best of ways. You can do either one, but honestly, for something this good I have no regrets for spending my time doing both. ...

    Check out more reviews @ Perspective of a Writer...A Peter Pan retelling like you've NEVER seen before!! Emma, Norman and Ray are the brightest kids at the Grace Field House orphanage. And under the care of the woman they refer to as “Mom,” all the kids have enjoyed a comfortable life. Good food, clean clothes and the perfect environment to learn—what more could an orphan ask for? One day, though, Emma and Norman uncover the dark truth of t...

    This is a solid, creepy sci-fi horror that I think is suitable for children as well as adults.(Er, at least as far as graphic content goes; maybe not if you think your kids will have nightmares after reading about orphans whose surrogate mother is actually (view spoiler)[raising them to be fed to demons. (hide spoiler)])

    Kids, demons, a dystopian world. Sure sounded like an interesting premise, but... Maybe it's just not for me. The storytelling is incredibly repetitive, survival is presented like some Hercule Poirot mystery, and it's all just a bit drab. I might have liked this as a child - but it didn't keep me interested enough now. I felt like DNFing quite a few times, and even while being manga, what with a page taking me no longer than 10 seconds, if even t...

    Woooooow what a PROMISING start! So far this manga has already surpassed my expectations. The prison escape mystery horror kind of story is definitely what I need in my life right now! The dynamic between Emma, Norman and Ray is my favorite thing about this series. The art is quite simplistic yet expressive and aesthetically pleasing, the plot is captivating, the pacing is just right. I’m hooked fam!

    Yeessss I was hoping this would take a turn for the worse after they showed how the kids had numbers tattooed on their necks. Very dark, just how I've been liking my fantasy lately.

    A lovely house in the middle of nowhere, surrounded by a wall with a gate, happy kids playing around... but are they really happy? And why can't they leave?I will try to skirt around most of the details as possible. :PFrom the start of the manga I just knew something was up, but what? Well, we don't find out until Conny leaves. After that, and the shocking revelation that came with it (and gruesomeness), our MC and her friends are going to do eve...

    Don't eat meat, kids. Cows have feelings too. Here, maybe this metaphor will help you understand. It's a bit on the nose.

    So good. Totally didn’t expected this to be so dark, but I love it. The world is so interesting and the art is stunning. I like Emma so far, but her character feels a bit flat. (Side note: I don’t know if it’s just me, but it’s so hard to find an interesting and complex female protagonist in manga/anime. It’s my mission to find a favourite female character.) Ray is my favourite type of character in manga/anime; quiet, calculating, cleve...

    The Promised Neverland is widely popular ongoing manga and its anime adaptation is airing this winter season, I got so invested into the story after watching the first episode so I decided to read the manga alongside the anime run so when s1 ends I can seamlessly keep on following the story via manga format.Why am I providing all of the personal info when I could talk about vol.1 itself? I really don't to give anything away. I believe it's best g...

    I'd give this a three and a half if Goodreads would let me.Simple series with some dark undertones. There are a couple of twists that I enjoyed that will keep me around for Volume 2. I wanna see where things go. Definite potential.With the release of the anime today I figured I should tear through this first volume.I'm glad I did.

    I haven’t read manga in years. After watching the Death Note anime, I downloaded the Shonen Jump app to check out their free previews and see what manga were out there in 2019. Nothing really grabbed me, mostly because I wasn’t the target audience. In truth, I’m not a big fan of the shonen genre outside of some very specific examples like One-Punch Man. I guess I need self-awareness in my stories about power levels and characters self-monol...

    This book is...surprisingly rated Older Teen so I am going to imagine this automatically happens with human death scenes though you never know how graphic this series will become. The themes certainly get darker as the volume is read so if murder and monsters bother you or Soylent Green is not your idea of a good time you might want to avoid this title.Grace Field House orphanage is home to many children (all of which have numbers tattooed on the...

    Demizu's art is standout in this work. I also appreciate the narrative's premise, a kind of strange twist on horror and what might be the post-apocalyptic. But some of the mystery is dispelled toward the end of this first volume when the focalization shifts from the orphans to the caretakers. I'm hoping that in future installments, this shift will prove necessary.

    This manga was like no other manga I’ve read before. It messed with my mind and how the main characters are not the typical shounen protagonists. They are using brains over brawn, something I really don’t see in shounen manga too often. It was amazing

    What an incredible start into a new series.I already enjoy reading about Emma, Ray and Norman.While some aspects were a but unrealistic considering their age, I cannot say it doenst make the plot more interesting.

    I love this story so far. The artwork is stunning and goes from charming and cute one moment to creepy the next. I can’t wait to see where this story goes and how Emma, Ray, and Norman proceed to plan their escape.

    The Promise to Neverland is such a great Manga. The story line takes a dark turn and is kind of horrifying to think about, yet the art work manages to keep it cute and friendly. I am completely hoked on this manga and may have ordered the next volume halfway through this one. 😉

    HOLY SHIT.This is so so so so creepy. I love it. Can't wait to watch the anime!(I was going to read only the first volume tonight, but I NEED to know more).

    Despite its cute character designs, The Promised Neverland is one of the most suspenseful manga I’ve read since Death Note. With amazing writing and artwork, The latest manga from Shonen Jump could possibly be this generation’s Death Note.
