The Promised Neverland, Vol. 1 (1)

The children of the Grace Field House orphanage must escape a macabre fate before it's too late.

Life at Grace Field House is good for Emma and her fellow orphans. While the daily studying and exams they have to take are tough, their loving caretaker provides them with delicious food and plenty of playtime. But perhaps not everything is as it seems…

Emma, Norman and Ray are the brightest kids at the Grace Field House orphanage. And under the care of the woman they refer to as "Mom," 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 truth of the outside world they are forbidden from seeing.

This manga has only been going for a little over a year, but it’s already one of my favorite manga. I’m currently reading the weekly chapters on Viz’s official website, but I got the physical copy of the book to look at the extra stuff and to support the authors. It’s been a blast re-reading it, as I’ve noticed a lot of things I didn’t before. This also very suspenseful, gaining the nickname by fans, ‘The promised cliffhanger’. From chapter one and onward this manga always keeps me at the edge of my seat. This manga is a must read. It’s got beautiful art, great characters, unique story, kinda creepy atmosphere, and very suspenseful.

The Promised Neverland has a fantastic, tense and dramatic story but it's got very odd editing and spelling issues that kind of get in the way. I have a few friends in the comic industry and even they've admitted to things like missing out on typos despite reading the page 30+ times, but this is just a smidge egregious. Though, if you don't mind the errors and poor editing, the story is REALLY GOOD and the art is SUPERB though it really isn't for little kids, more like teenagers and up. It's got some death of small children.
Having read all of The Promised Neverland it is fun to return to where it all began. The amount of small clues that are scattered throughout Volume 1 that I picked up on this time around blew my mind. It is clear from the start Neverland had a clear story in mind and a detailed plot laid out from the very beginning. And it's definitely worth a second read through to pick up on the smaller details. The Promised Neverland is an unusual shonen series as it it is far more horror and psychological orintatined then what is typical of a the Shonen Jump magazine. I won't spoil anything but I say that the series earns it's older teen rating and is not for those who are easily frightened. The protagonist Emma, Ray and Norman have a very fun dynamic to their friendship with each having very distinct personalities. Personally Emma is my favorite as she is so true to her core values despite the scrappy hand of cards life had dealt her. If you're looking for a change of pace for a shonen series, check out The Promised Neverland, it's one crazy journey. - MickManga
I started reading this online without any interest to it to begin with, and now let me say that this is one of my favorite manga so far. I will definitely be buying all volumes as they come out. Talk about continuous suspense that keeps you reading! As for the copy itself, it came in immaculate and I'm very happy.
