@HirasawaLucky
These examples of other anime adaptations are irrelevant, adapting 35 chapters into 12 episodes is reasonable considering the contents of these chapters.
I could go in detail on why the pacing is terrible, but it'd be pointless if you've convinced yourself that it's not, instead I'll focus on the worst problem with the directing (which you ignored from my previous comment):
Removing all internal monologue!
The internal monologue was the center of all psychological battles and planning in this show, why the hell did they remove it?!
That lead to many problems, for example some things were only explained in internal monologue in the manga, so they had to find other ways to explain them.
Like sister Krone's motives, because they removed the internal monologue, they had her talking to a doll to explain her plans to us!
You can't tell me that's not a terrible decision on the director's part!


HirasawaLucky | Feb 27, 4:01 AM
@DiabloMask tensei shirata with 18 eps right now are included in middle of 37 chapters.

the few first eps isn't rushed, but its a must. and as I read promise neverland manga, the 1st arc end on chap 35 (when they escape the farm)

35 chap with a dense dialogues an so much detail would not be enought for 12 eps, and just like you said, 12 eps are more enough, thats why they do this and so thats why it should be like this. they did not waste the time. I can say they would waste the time if they do some filler, like princess principal. so the staff arrange all the element without without destroy the contents for 12 eps. and there is lot of example like this.

this case just like unpopular manga like made in abyss before it got adaptation, and the adaptation came so good. when it adaptation is so good, people started reading the manga and realized there is plenty part has been cut from the original source but adaptation was perfect because the director know what to do. Improvisation and make a good atmosphere of adaptation.
the adaptation of deathnote just like that too, but araki tetsuro did it good.

for me, the good adaptation is, Improvisation from original source with out making the adaptation bore/flat and have

kanbe keep the context of the genre and the atmosphere strong just like another good director, his style for mistery and thriller has delivered from how it should be. I read the manga and I love the adaptation. every each characters and plot has described in good way, if this series has 24 eps he could do more dense and intense output from each eps.

and yeah I get what you mean, manny people said that too and I love his style to make promise neverland like this. thankyou

@DisciMILF
Of course you wouldn't know what I'm talking about when you don't read my comment.
I explained exactly what's wrong with the directing.


DiscoMilf | Feb 24, 9:55 PM
I don't know what you guys are talking about when you claim his directing is bad. I didn't read the manga for Neverland but what's present in the anime is pretty good, especially direction-wise. The tone is eerie and unnerving with just the right about of camp to make it work, the pacing is superb, its use of silence is excellent, animation is smooth and fluid, and the performances are really good. If anything, it's the predictable story that's holding it back. It's very easy to predict its "twists."

Neverland has problems but I don't think many of them can be attributed to this guy.


DiabloMask | Feb 23, 1:26 PM
@HirasawaLucky @KagariShiinauwu
12 episodes are enough for the first arc, I wish people would stop using this lame excuse.
When the first few episodes were rushed and the latest two episodes had unimportant scenes dragging out and wasting time, you know they didn't use the time wisely.
Also removing all internal monologue was a terrible decision, so yeah it is badly directed.
Criticism is not the same as complaining, and being nice about it isn't helping anyone.


KagariShiinauwu | Feb 22, 7:38 PM
Why the fuck are you guys complaining? Not only did he do YnN justice but also managed to complement it with it's ambience, use of shots and character's facial expressions.

This guy is an excellent director. Any complains about pacing or removed stuff should go to the script writer if anything (And he's also done a good job anyways)


Wasshio | Feb 17, 1:15 AM
To be honest I dropped the manga and I kinda thought the adaptation from what I've seen is good... so he didn't exactly screwed anything, since he fixed stuff that I had multiple qualms with the source.


todd2580 | Feb 8, 2:59 PM
@HirasawaLucky you're right don't blame him guys


HirasawaLucky | Feb 8, 6:32 AM
for those who said he ruined yakusoku no neverland, he didn't do it. the adaptation is very solid with consistent quality. the anime just has 12 eps dude dont you know that? that's why not the whole chapter not being adaptated but this guy made it verry good direcred. I am the manga reader of original story btw..
so dont blame how he directed the promise neverland because he did a good job, blame the studio that only gave 12 eps, because in fact there is a lot of bad/fail example of anime adaptation.


Ocalino | Feb 7, 1:57 PM
Kinda ruined the promised neverland but come on, how could you hate him after seeing how innocent he looks
