    Default The Promised Neverland thread: The darker side of Shonen Jump returns!

    What happens when demons have taken over the world and harvest human children in a solitary farm for the sake of eating them? This manga happens.

    Very different from typical Shonen Jump, which is neat. *Praying its dark tone doesn't get it axed*

    Discuss here.

    Me, weeks ago: What the hell, Bleach got axed to make room for this?

    Me, now: *wipes tears with Bleach volumes* Beautiful, truly, truly beautiful.

    Just caught up to see what all the hub was about. I like it, it's very different from usual Shonen which isn't a bad thing.

    Normally I'd hate the type of optimism Emma has, but taking into account that she's only 11 and as such doesn't get those kids are beyond ****ed I'll let it slide.

    Lots of good potential here.

    Glad to see Ray finally mattering in the story.

    So is this like a hybrid lovechild between Hollow Fields and Attack on Titan while Pan's Labyrinth watched its conception? Am I understanding that right?

    ...you have my interest.

    This manga is very reminiscent od Death Note with the psychological warfare.

    The pacing will be the downfall of this manga if this keeps up, this new character did not need to be. I want to see the world already.

    So now it's basically war from all sort of sides? I actually like the idea of sister being on neither side honestly.

    Also demons! Finally! Jesus Christ...

    Ray could definitely live with killing, everyone else not so much.

    Love the color spread.

    So if mama knows who the targets are, why isn't she taking more precautions? Why not nab them now instead of letting them plan? She must have some crazy smart plan for sure.

    And for the snitch, glasses girl has been real shady for like the past 4 chapters.

    Don and Gilda were the traitors. Disappointed with Don, but Gilda was pretty damn obvious.

    I'm kind of with Ray on this, it's better to just be up front with everyone as aposed to making up some daring rescue for a long since dead kid. Although with Don being the snitch I can see where Norman was coming from.

    The again the truth is a rather silly explaination.

    Am I the only who thinks that it was not Don or Gilda who gave the note to Mama?

    The only people who had those notes were those two, but I don't think it was Gilda. She's with Kyrone apparently.

    So it was Ray all along?! Wut?

    I know people speculated he might be one of them, but I thought that was too silly to be true. So Gilda is clean but Don and Ray are traitors?

    I love and hate this series lmao.

    I thought there'd be hope for edgy characters.

    I'm disappointed.

    Norman is on the one way trip to getting himself murdered. All these flags lol. Not convinced about Ray.
    To right the countless wrongs of our day, we shine this light of true redemption, that this place may become as paradise. What a wonderful world such would be...

    So Ray's been the mastermind from pretty much the very beginning then. That's a rather interesting way to go about the situation.

    I can already half predict what his motive for all this will be too.
