Synopsis

At Grace Field House, life couldn't be better for the orphans! Though they have no parents, together with the other kids and a kind "Mama" who cares for them, they form one big, happy family. No child is ever overlooked, especially since they are all adopted by the age of 12. Their daily lives involve rigorous tests, but afterwards, they are allowed to play outside.

There is only one rule they must obey: do not leave the orphanage. But one day, two top-scoring orphans, Emma and Norman, venture past the gate and unearth the harrowing secret behind their entire existence. Utilizing their quick-wittedness, the children must work together to somehow change their predetermined fate.

[Written by MAL Rewrite]

[Spoiler Warning]

The first arc of this story is one of the best self-contained stories I've ever read. You're always kept guessing, due to the unique setting and sheer drought of information that is present. The protagonists are fun and endearing, the antagonists are cool, sympathetic and very intimidating, all round great.

However, that's only a quarter of the story so far. After its' conclusion, the story begins to degenerate into a post-apocalypse story with so many genre-trappings, tropes and predictable story beats that, as a fairly genre-savvy person for this kind of story, things have only gotten less and less interesting as the mediocre storytelling is read more

This manga, albeit very new has gotten my attention well enough to prompt me to write a review. With the ending of popular series like Bleach and Naruto, myself and many other people have high expectations from the newer generation of authors. And I believe that the authors of Yakusoku no Neverland have great potential.

YnN starts off with Emma, a happy go lucky girl who spends the days of her life in pure bliss along with all the other orphans. All the kids there enjoy their carefree everyday activities like playing tag, eating delicious food, and taking an extensive IQ test with absolute focus... wait. read more

I've given it a 10. Based on 10 chapters. I rarely give 10. And to think I picked it up because I was searching for substitutes for Bleach!!!!

This manga has potential. Just as much potential as SnK had when it came out. Moreover, it has the potential to be everything that SnK was NOT. ( These days SnK is EXTREMEMLY slow paced )

The story is extremely fast paced. It developed in 10 chapters what SnK had taken nearly 1 years to. It revolves around a group of trio; Emma, Ray and Norman as they try to escape from their orphanage. Every chapter in this read more

Being a relatively new manga, I'll be basing this review off of the currently released chapters. I've never reviewed a series so soon after the original release, that's how good this manga is.

Story: 9/10
I'd honestly like to give it a higher score... but because I'm only going off of the few chapters that have been released, I have to give the story a 9 for now. The story is EXTREMELY original, well-paced, with just the right amounts of darkness and lightheartedness. I'll just be reading along, and all of the sudden, my stomach balls up, turns over, and shrivels with tension and real fear. Best read more
