Synopsis

Surrounded by a forest and a gated entrance, the Grace Field House is inhabited by orphans happily living together as one big family, looked after by their "Mama," Isabella. Although they are required to take tests daily, the children are free to spend their time as they see fit, usually playing outside, as long as they do not venture too far from the orphanage—a rule they are expected to follow no matter what. However, all good times must come to an end, as every few months, a child is adopted and sent to live with their new family, never to be heard from again.

However, the three oldest siblings have their suspicions about what is actually happening at the orphanage, and they are about to discover the cruel fate that awaits the children living at Grace Field, including the twisted nature of their beloved Mama.

*No spoilers*
This review is for Season 1 of The Promised Neverland anime.

Summary:
The Promised Neverland, or Yakusoku no Neverland, is an anime adaptation of its manga. Season 1 tells the story of orphan children raised on a farm from which they are sold as meat to demons, covering the first few arcs of the manga. If you are interested in the horror or thriller genre, this may be of interest to you. Please note that season 2 is a huge let down and dip in quality, regardless of whether or not you have read the manga.

Mixed Feelings
If I could describe a fall from grace, it would be Promise Neverland. I remember watching this anime when it first came out and described it as peak after the first couple episodes. It gave us a thrilling, original premise, with some very interesting child characters. I'm a sucker for a bleak world, with minimal margin for success in the stories which this show felt like it was taking to another level. After the first season, I thought there was nowhere to go but up, but after watching season 2, it felt like it completely lost it's way. It honestly felt like there was a ...

It kinda sucks.
I could write a whole essay on why that is the case but I really don't have to. My mom said so.
The 5 star rating is mainly for the visuals, which are high-quality and somewhat unique.
Unfortunately after the very first episode, the show takes a dump dive towards Yakusoku no-thanks Neverland.

Except for the visuals and initial idea, execution is horrendous. Truly everything else this anime has going for it is mediocre. Whoever thought it was a good plan to mix common shounen anime tropes, themes, and clichés with an incredibly dark, serious, and thought-provoking subject was smoking major crack.

Miyazaki was right.
