The Promised Neverland

It was amazing getting to watch season one of The Promised Neverland. Admittedly it was a bit slow going at first, and many of the volumes seemed to run together for me. That was cleared up soon as I started watching the anime. It really does seem like Isabella is a horrible person. Whether she is or isn't is totally up to you. I see her as another unfortunate soul who is stuck trying to do what she has to survive.

I have to ask are you dying for season two of The Promised Neverland? Don't want to wait for the next season of the anime to come out? Defiantly check out the manga. I can't stress that enough, read the manga! Don't torture yourself by waiting and waiting for Season two to come out. I'm tickled that there will be a season two. It has been delayed due to the pandemic.

The is so much more that happens in the manga. Plus, by reading the manga, there aren't any of those cannon or filler type arks that tend to appear in really popular anime. Bleach and One Piece both come to mind with fillers. I'm not saying that filler arks are a terrible thing. Many of them were pretty enjoyable. Thankfully there is a season two coming of this fantastic story. It can't come soon enough.

So much happens with Emma, Ray, and Norman in so little time. It's hard for me to wrap my mind around it. Emma is a fantastic child. I wish I was as brave as she is at her age. If I had been in Emma's shoes. I would have been shipped out. I wouldn't have thought of even remotely trying to escape. The biggest thing with this manga is that everyone in it is merely trying to survive life with demons who see them as ready to be cooked steak.

The further you get into this manga, I swear, the better it becomes. How that is possible. I don't know. Soon as one question is answered, more pop up. Twists and turns a million. When one mission is completed, more show up. Emma's mission of merely wanting to live and free the farm children becomes more complicated. Further, you progress into the manga.

I can't believe I'm saying this, but when you get to where I'm at, you gain an understanding of the demons. I'm not saying I feel bad for them. Well, some of them I do, majority nope. You meet many great demons who aren't bad even though they are demons. Other's are the worst kind of evil you can imagine, in my opinion, that is.

I am both happy and sad that The Promised Neverland is completed. Sad because there will be no more volumes coming out. Happy because of how things turned out. It wasn't ideal, but it turned out way better than I had initially thought it would. Now that I have read all the chapters, part of me wants to cry, and the other wants to throw a party because I got to enjoy the entire story.

The Promised Neverland is an absolutely incredible story and one that everyone should read or watch. I couldn't wait for season two to come out, so that is the way I read the rest of it. This is one manga/ anime that I completely recommend. 100% without a doubt.
