The Promised Neverland (Japanese: 約束のネバーランド Hepburn: Yakusoku no Nebārando is a Japanese manga series written by Kaiu Shirai and illustrated by Posuka Demizu. It has been serialized in Weekly Shōnen Jump since August 1, 2016, with the individual chapters collected and published by Shueisha into sixteen tankōbon volumes as of October 2019. The story follows a group of orphaned children in their escape plan from an orphanage. The Promised Neverland anime ends with Chapter 37 of the manga, so you’ll want to read Chapter 38 in volume 5 to see what happens next. Though that’s a place where you can start, I highly recommend going back and reading from Chapter 1. The Promised Neverland anime’s production team took some liberties with their adaptation to make it a more exciting (and tense) viewing experience. The manga features quite a few monologues and other great moments that were ultimately cut or trimmed for the anime. The tone of the manga can be different at times too. I guarantee you’ll have a better sense of the world of The Promised Neverland if you start with the beginning.
Norman, Emma, and Ray are the brightest kids at the Grace Field House orphanage. And under the care of the woman they refer to as “Mama,” 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 and twisted truth of the outside world they are forbidden from seeing. Soon, the children of Grace Field House must escape a macabre fate before it’s too late. !
