There's a glitch now where whenever you upload a picture a rabdom $ will be added to the crimg code which you have to go and erase before the image becomes visible. And I don't see why you wouldn't expect it. There aren't very many children at the orphanage and there aren't many other orphanages so it's not a big shock to learn that only 2 kids at a single orphanage have reached their full potential as food currently.


I see.I'll edit the original post later.

I wasn't talking about the kids though. I was talking about the fact that right now only Isabella's plant can produce children. They way that she addresses it makes it seem like it isn't a regular issue, so I think it'll be interesting to see that point developed in the future.

Yeah, because like I said it's not really that much of a shock that only one plant at a time will have kids who's brains are at their peak. I mean these places have like, what, 50 kids each? I feel like even that is highballing it significantly

This series just continues to surprise me every week even Shirai commented that we have to re-read some chapters in Volume 3 to further understand what is going to happen after next week. More importantly what the hell is going on!? Total madness right there and i give props to Shirai and Demizu for making this amazing series

I can see what you mean, but I'd put a slightly wider angle on it for this reason - do brains need to be at peak for harvest?

I would argue they don't. Or at the very least it doesn't depend on age or intelligence, so it shouldn't take so much time. We saw that in the first chapter with the demise of a very young girl who basically called herself stupid. And in the second chapter we saw the demons talk about what a delicacy she was despite that she wasn't anywhere near the level of the main trio. If food is needed so badly, we know of no reason for which they shouldn't be able to retrieve some.

This makes me believe either:

1) Isabella is thinking about an issue of production rather than quality (or at the very leas, in addition to quality), which could lead to a bigger discussion on why she wanted Emma to become a mom in the first place.

2) Going along more with your train of thought, there is a necessity of only high quality for this particular event and we are finally about to get our first big development concerning our antagonists. (Which even if not surprising I think is worth pointing out and getting excited for. We saw the demon dinner table months ago, and it may finally be here )

So in short, earlobes. Good talk.

That latest chapter though. What was the pen for exactly? I still don't understand what it's use is on their escape plan.

On the other hand, Norman! That genius boy can still influence things even when he's not there. So awesome!


EDIT: Saw 35. Ah this manga!! Playing with my feelings like this!

Can someone give me a quick rundown on why I should read this? I saw quite a number of people get excited when it was licensed by Viz, but the descriptions given don't sell much.

Can't really give a quick rundown. This manga here is one of the best written I have read so far. Just read it from the beginning. Trust me.

Think of it as having the mind games of Death Note, the balance of childhood whimsy and darkness of Lewis Carrol's Alice books and the tension and fear of Attack on Titan. This is the kind of story that constantly evolves, bringing new twists at every turn and weaving a clever and complex narrative web that's as engrossing as those previous examples, if not more.

Once again this series adds yet another layer to its story and once again it works excellently. The introduction of fantasy elements to the series marks the arrival of even more unpredictability and it's all set up pretty well in hindsight. In the hands of a lesser author this addition would seem like a desperate attempt to maintain a series after having used up all one's ideas but in this story it feels properly set up, especially with how the reveal is in keeping with the rhythm of this series' perpetually increasing stakes. I keep being surprised at how tense I feel when reading The Promised Neverland, it's a thriller that should keep a large variety of people on the edges of their seats as they read.

I do feel as though the fantasy element addition was a little jarring but I think it adds a much-needed dynamic to the world. Now we know that the outside world is very different from our own world despite the year everything halted
and the technology present. I'm interested in seeing what's even further beyond the area they have made it too. I'm hoping this manga is a long one

I agree, the strength of this series is how consistently it keeps the reader and the characters on edge and the lack of familiarity brought by a fantasy setting is perfect for that.
