I just finished watching the first two episodes of the anime and I AM SCREAMING I NEED IT NOW. Bought the first three volumes. Fingers crossed y'all. Shit went from 100-1,000,000 REAL QUICK .

If you spoil anything me, I will literally explode and be so sad so please....no

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. I cannot wait to read the next volumes!

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))
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 that, I still couldn't read fast enough. Not going ...more

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 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 the outside world they are forbidden from seeing.

Reseña completa: http://elcaosliterario.blogspot.com/2...

Este manga se disfruta más desde el desconocimiento, de ahí que su sinopsis sea un poco escueta y no avance demasiado lo que nos vamos a encontrar. Por tanto, si la sinopsis avanza poco, ya sabéis que no diré mucho más en cuanto a su argumento para no romper el misterio.

El primer capítulo sorprende al lector con un lugar de ensueño en el que todo es maravilloso, un lugar feliz y sin preocupaciones. Pero esto no es más que un espejismo y po

If I’m not careful this could be another series i just completely binge read. Such a strong first volume!

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. :P

From 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 everything they can to get the hell out of this place

5/5

No me esperaba para nada la trama de este manga y me ha dejado completamente encandilada. Prefiero no contar nada porque es mejor descubrirlo por uno mismo, así que simplemente diré que lo recomiendo mucho. Es mi primer manga, pero parece que he empezado bien.

Voy a ver si compro el segundo tomo.

C’était mon premier manga donc je n’ai pas beaucoup de points de comparaison mais j’ai vraiment aimé ! L’histoire est originale et vraiment entraînante. Les personnages sont attachants et je suis vraiment curieuse de découvrir la suite !

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.

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.

Páni, mě bavila manga. Na úvod dobrý (mám rád inteligentní hrdiny), zápletka slušná, postavy spíš mapují terén než aby dělaly něco úplně zajímavého (Death Note měl větší drajv). Trochu mám strach z přešlapování na místě.
MadameMelli
Band 1 von "The promised neverland" bietet eine gute und straffe Handlung. Das Konzept bietet einen guten Ansatz, ich hätte mir jedoch ein oder zwei Antworten mehr gewünscht.
Die Zeichnungen gefallen mir außerordentlich gut und ich bin auf weitere Werke der Künstler(Innen?) gespannt!

Un premier tome intéressant, qui au début me rappelait "Miss Peregrine et les enfants particuliers", pour s'avérer plus différent et complexe, divergeant vers la dystopie.
Le mystère est entier suite à la grande révélation du "pourquoi cet orphelinat", et on a hâte de connaître la suite.

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, clever and so on.

And Norman... he gives me creeps. He reminds me

Ce manga est une bombe !
Avec la couverture toute mignonne et les premières pages, qui pourrait s'attendre à l'atroce révélation qui nous surprend au début de ce tome 1 ?! Certainement pas Emma et Norman, qui vont découvrir à leur grande horreur que leur si charmant orphelinat et leur si aimante directrice qu'ils appellent Maman ne sont pas du tout ce qu'ils semblent être ...

[Sebbene in questa recensione nomini anche il secondo volume, non riporta assolutamente nessuno spoiler.]


Quando ho cominciato a leggere Promised Neverland, mi aspettavo una cosa completamente diversa, sicuramente inquietante, ma diversa.
E invece questo manga mi ha sorpreso dall'inizio alla fine, sia nel primo che nel secondo volume.
Mi sono trovata catapultata in un orfanotrofio, all'interno del quale tutto viene gestito da una Mamma; solo un adulto con 37 ubbidienti bambini, la cui unica regola

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-monologuing while in the middle of a fight.

Wow, ich bin ja immer um den Manga bzw. die Reihe herumgeschlichen, aber war schon so gespoilert, dass ich ihn nicht lesen wollte. Nun habe ich ihn doch noch selbst gelesen und bin genauso begeistert, wie so viele andere Leser.
Die Handlung ist richtig gut. Spannend und trotzdem emotional. Die Charaktere bekommen für einen Manga genug Tiefe, um wirklich mitzufiebern. Das wird mich später sicher noch die ein oder andere Träne kosten. Inhaltlich sage ich hier mal nichts, außer, dass es um Kinder ge

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 going into the story completely blind.
