  • Iryna *Book and Sword*
    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...

    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!
  • Mir
    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)])
  • Evelina | AvalinahsBooks
    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...

    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.
  • Victoria ♡
    If I’m not careful this could be another series i just completely binge read. Such a strong first volume!
  • Reem Ghabbany
    This was more enjoyable than I thought it would be
  • Mehsi
    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...

    i need volume 2 asap!!
  • James DeSantis
    I just watched Made In Abyss and really enjoyed it. The Promised Neverland gives the same vibe. Kids in a anime being in danger is nothing new, but the sharp turn from happy and go lucky to darkness is jarring but both Made in Abyss and Promised Neverland feel earned. So a bunch of kids at a orphanage are trying to enjoy their young childhood lives. One day Conny, one of the kids gets chosen to be adopted. YAY! Except when two of her fellow frien...

    wow, what can i say? this was so so so good, definitely the best story i’ve read in a while, it makes everything pale in comparison. i’ll write a full review once i recover from this.
  • Aleksandra
    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...
  • Jessica
    Loved this! So dark and intense.
  • Nelson
    Great set up! Let's see where this goes
  • Amber
    Definitely not what I expected at all! Interested in seeing what will happen next.

    Don't eat meat, kids. Cows have feelings too. Here, maybe this metaphor will help you understand. It's a bit on the nose.
  • Justin
    I stumbled across the anime adaptation of this a month or two ago, and it immediately became one of my favorite shows in recent years. I binged the entire show in a single sitting--which is something I almost never do--and this series is actually one of the things that pushed me to getting a subscription to Shonen Jump (because who knows how long it'll be until season two?). The show follows the manga pretty closely, so far, with only a few minor...
  • maya
    I'm actually kinda freaked outlike genuinely scared god help me ....*shivers*
  • Aleksandra
    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.
  • Karen
    omg! I'm loving this manga!
  • Jinn
    4.5/5Unexpectedly good.
  • Alex
    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...
  • Wing Kee
    Wow, this book...wow.World: The art is beautiful and detailed, normally when you read manga there are some great characters art and then fairly basic backgrounds until the splash pages, not the case here, reminds me of comic books and that’s awesome. The art is not very mangay and the style really shines through and it feels a thing all it’s own. The world building is strong, it is done through the eyes of the children and so it’s so much m...
  • Ashley Rose
    4 StarsDefinitely not the manga for everyone but DAMN is it good. I keep trying to think of theories in my head but I'm just driving myself insane. Going to read this series like crazy over the next month considering my library has all physical copies. Personal theory (Spoilers, but I have no idea if this is right or not); Considering Isabelle has a number on her neck as well, implies she was a student (as well as Krone). Also, it was mentioned i...
  • Doc
    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...
  • Derek Royal
    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.
