The Promised Neverland

The Promised Neverland ...

Review: Another Manga that is rapidly growing in popularity, The Promised Neverland is set in an orphanage where the children are well treated and watched over by a loving mother figure. Of course, all is not as it seems, and the three smartest orphans figure out why: it’s really a factory farm, and the children who are “adopted” are actually sent off to be eaten by monsters. Their only hope for survival is to escape, but under her calm exterior, “Mom” is pretty canny, and pretty soon it’s hard to know whom to trust. Don’t be fooled by the pretty cover—this is a dark survival story in an attractive package. - School Library Journal

Review: Anime News Network's Rebecca Silverman enjoyed the first manga volume and gave it a A-, saying, "Tense pacing, interesting literary connections, art and story work well together, strong plot and foreshadowing."

Plot: Set in year 2045, Emma is an 11-year-old orphan living in Grace Field House, a small orphanage housing her and her 37 siblings. Life had never been better; with food that tasted gourmet, plush beds, snow-white uniforms, and the love of their "Mother" (the caretaker) Isabella, as well the litany of daily exams that Emma always aced with her two best friends Ray and Norman. The orphans are basically allowed to do whatever they want, except venture out of the compounds or the gate that connects the house to the outside world.
