The Promised Neverland Vol. 1 (Review)

  11 year old kids Emma, Ray, and Norman live in an orphanage where they are surrounded by other kids and a woman they call Mom. They live happy lives with only two simple rules, do not cross the barrier in the forest and do not cross the gate. Sometimes if a child is lucky, they leave the orphanage to start a new life with their new family. One day, a young girl gets sent away to start her new life but she leaves her favorite toy behind. Emma and Norman break a rule to return her toy and they discover what their true purpose is.
  I’d been meaning to get into this series for quite some time but the cover art made the series look like a fantasy, slice of life instead of the psychological fantasy horror it really is. The story is interesting to say the least as the world around the orphans is shrouded in so much mystery to be uncovered combined with an art style that’s consistently appealing as the chapters progress. It’s no surprise that there’s an anime adaptation of the series coming soon as the horror genre has been on the pretty low side this year in the anime world.
  Volume 1 of The Promised Neverland does its job at giving readers a story to get lost in, plot twists, and characters readers will care about enough to see what happens next.
