The 12th and final episode of Yakusoku no Neverland (The Promised Neverland) aired on Friday ended with an announcement that a second season for the anime series is in production. The new season is planned for a 2020 premiere.

Yakusoku no Neverland adapts Kaiu Shirai and Posuka Demizu's fantasy thriller manga of the same title, which began its serialization in Weekly Shounen Jump in August 2016. Shueisha published the 13th volume on March 4. The manga has a cumulative 10 million copies of its compiled volumes in circulation worldwide.

VIZ Media released the first three chapters of the manga in English in their digital Weekly Shonen Jump magazine, at the same time as Japan, as a part its Jump Start initiative before adding the series to its regular lineup. The company's new Shounen Jump service now publishes the manga simultaneously with its Japanese release digitally. The eighth volume went on sale on February 5, with the ninth volume scheduled for an April 2 release.

Yakusoku no Neverland was nominated consecutively in the 10th and 11th editions of the annual Manga Taisho award, as well as the 22nd Tezuka Osamu Cultural Prize, and won the 63rd Shogakukan manga award for shounen manga last January. The series also placed first in male readers category in the 2018 Kono Manga ga Sugoi rankings.

Ooh, a two parts series for an adaptation...

How many books were covered with the first half-series, please?


I think the anime covered up to Volume 5: Chapter 37 "Escape". If anyone's planning to read the manga, I suggest reading from the very start since there are slight differences between the manga and the anime.

@chloudei 5whole tomes in only 13eps?! Years ago, it would have taken ~ 20eps out of a full-length series (with 6 made-for-TV épisodes).
Not hard to believe there are différences.

@Gorochu Indeed... So many TV slots consumed by more épisodes for on-going adaptations rather than original projects. It's sad to live in those days...

I drop it in episode 3. All his message revolves around generating empathy with a representation of livestock that has nothing to do with reality, this tries to be serious, but it seems to me more comedy that does not even become funny enough.


How do you find it funny?
The topic of the show is raising kids to be sold of to get eaten without them knowing. The only thing that even comes close to being funny is how high up their mouths are.
It's supposed to be a thriller and get your blood pumping, not generate empathy.
I have never thought of someone's opinion to be so bizarre in my life.


that same thing is a thriller about cat-and-mouse game it's a battle of wit between the children and the woman caretaker, but that's all because the whole background behind it is not even remotely intelligent or philosophical, it's like mirai nikki.

Oh, i'm so thankful for this. After the finale episode, i definitely need more!
Guess we're reading the manga until the second season is out!

Are the going to animate the part where they brutally murder Phil for ratting them out?! Cannot!
Wait!

Is this for real? Haven't read the manga,but you should at least put it into a spoiler tag..


Nope, definitely not a real spoiler. Just a very bad joke.

The wait may be long but its sure as Hell worth it.

Oh wow, I mean I'm not going to say you're wrong just because it's your opinion,but I guess it wasn't for you then. It has a bit of comedy in it because of the kids. They had lead a very happy life before discovering the truth after all.

I didn't like the first episode or so either and that was because the mouths irrated me and nothing really happened, if I recall correctly.
Now I'm debating on what to set as my Favorite anime of the season and Yakusoku no neverland comes pretty close

Didn't expect this to happen,but here we are! This went soo fast
Very excited for the next year already.
I'm looking forward to the 2nd season and the sequel to Tensei shitara Slime Datta Ken :) This is seriosly a blessing to me,2 of my favorites get a continuation :D
^^ Hoping it's gonna be a 2 cour anime though

Mar 28, 10:31 PM by Mikayashine

Hell yeah lets save phil and the other kids😁
