How is there no thread about this manga?

For those who don't know what it is, it's a new manga from Shonen jump that has some similarities to Death Note in how the characters behave and try to solve various situations.

    Didn't expect this to get it's own thread.

    Might as well, the fucks in the anime & manga thread only talk about like 4 shows at a time and probably don't even know how to read.


    Yeah this manga is GOAT tier already.

    Speaking of Krone...
    What's the purpose of that Pen that she gave to Norman? It's obvious that he discovered something once he left.

    It's purpose is to either be a magical plot point that solves all of their problems, or more than likely, a magical plot point that look like it would solve all of their problems but actually backfires or does nothing and causes them to have to rethink their strategies.

    I'm fine with either, this geniuses vs geniuses theme is always fun when it's this well written.

    Phil is pretty smart for a 4 year old. I'm really wondering how they would ever get back to them 2 years later because it seems almost impossible to escape.

    The Promised Neverland is the greatest new manga of 2017, holy crap.

    or some reason when I saw the thread title I thought this was going to be a sequel to Holyland.
    It's not the end of the world, but you can see it from here.

    I kinda love how the manga's all about going against one's expectations. The big escape is on! Everything's on lockdown! Huge demon monsters chasing them down! The pen must be a secret weapon! But nope. Different plan altogether.

    In ch. 30, Norman sincerely thought he was gonna die when he was sent off. So why did they bullshit "Everything is according to Norman's plans!" like he knew he would survive? Fuck that, he didn't have a plan in the first place. But I guess we needed more keikaku.
    I might be misunderstanding something but this is bugging me way too much. I'm gonna be reading this just for the dope demons from now on.

    The kids don't know that/if Norman's alive. This was his "legacy", so to speak - the Norman we see in the latest chapter is just a memory.

    Damn this series is fiah; thanks for the recommendation :tup: ! I just reached the part where the helper was introduced.

    Norman definitely saw something when he was sent off though. So he could very well end up being alive or maybe they offered him some type of "duty"
  • NinetiesArcadeNinetiesArcade Joined: Posts: 1,316
    Finished em; is Norman alive or not? That was some stuff. Enjoyed the build up to the escape plan.
    Are there any other manga like this? Tried getting into DeathNote but meh, just didn't hold enough interest.

    We don't know if Norman's alive or not. But he was not sent off in the normal fashion.

    I guess I'm not really surprised that Mama reacted that way in the end. I can empathize with her. To think that it only took one chapter to make me feel differently about her. Great chapter.

    Damn good first arc. Has kind of the same feel you get from the first half of Death Note.

    Author must've taken some lessons from Oda... to feel bad for the "antagonist". :f
    Isabella was/is one of my favorite characters in recent history and the way she's drawn is just top notch.

    This series is dope, was pleasantly surprised by it. The art, especially the cover stuff, is some top tier shit.

    Decent couple of chapters, though it's now reading more like an adventure comic (though with more vulnerable protagonists).

    Considering the brutality of the first arc, I'm wondering how long it'll be until one of the redshirt kids gets eaten.

    Right now the demons are only really onto ONE of them. So how this plays out is up to him.
  • NinetiesArcadeNinetiesArcade Joined: Posts: 1,316
    I can only imagine the other 'short stories'/parables in that old book they are carrying; its literally a life saver for them kids.

    So we finally meet another (possible) human. Even if this one is a demon of some sort, with Emma down, the kids don't really have any choice but to follow her.
