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.

Have you ever thought about escape?

The Promised Neverland starts with Emma, ​​a happy lucky girl who spends her days in pure happiness along with all the other orphans. All the children there enjoy their daily activities that are not as burdensome as playing, eating delicious food, and taking extensive tests with full focus ... but wait. This is when you realize that this is not an ordinary orphanage, but the children who grew up there completely forgot about it. It was only after Emma witnessed the terrible truth about the purpose of the orphanage surrounded by walls that she and several other orphans began to read more

The Promised Neverland is one of the most hauntingly brilliant anime I’ve seen in the last decade, and it definitely deserves the hype it’s receiving at the moment.

Horror is a genre that anime has always struggled with, as when you try to mash conventional horror tropes such as gore and disturbing imagery with eyes that take up half of a character's head, it usually isn’t horrific in the slightest bit. Because of this, horror in anime commonly strays away from the horror conventions of horror films in the western world, and instead revolves around psychological horror. This is the approach that The Promised Neverland has read more

Damn... Its been quite a long time since Ive given an anime a solid 10/10. I really want to critisize Yakusoku no Neverland but its just way too damn perfect! This anime actually nailed absolutly everything! There is just no other way to put it...
The story is phenomenal! I personally love the "escape" and "mind game" theme of the anime, and I would really love to see more animes with this theme. The way everything plays out is just so bloody brilliant! I love it!
The Art is one of the best I have every seen! Every second of this anime I could feel my read more

Apart from Dororo, this is my anime of the season! It's a flawed masterpiece and has earned a 9 from every single category I judge an anime on which is both a great thing but shows that it could've been executed slightly better overall and been a true masterpiece!

Cloverworks is not a studio I particularly like at all, however I must give them their props, apart from a couple of budget limitations in some occasional backgrounds or distant characters- the animation is mainly crisp and fluid with fantastic emotion being portrayed in the way each character is presented! Furthermore, I must praise the stylistic direction read more
