Chapter 2 translations are out.

Looks like The Promised Neverland is going to be a mystery manga more than a battle manga.

(and a slow as fuck one if it keeps up this pacing)

Enjoy it while you can, mystery mangas rarely last super long in WSJ.

So what do you think it's gonna be like outside? Urotsukidojin style demonic hellscape? cyber/biopunk post-human thing? Alien space ship?
>>
>>145384423

Enjoying it so far, the last chapter seemed pretty smart.

They can still see the sky, so everything seems fine. I'm going to argue it's a normal human world with Demons in the background.

The absolute madmen.
>>
>>145385021
That's one of the motives this manga is annoying me.
Main character is a female, but has no sex appeal at all. It feels like something is off.
>>
>>145385021
I am really enjoying the dynamic between her and Norman, we know Norman is the most intelligent one but he still asks for Emma's Pov on things which is pretty neat

Also Ray probably knows already but has been keeping quiet about it. Watch as he already has a plan or some shit that he has been preparing for years beforehand. Considering all the books he constantly reads I feel like he is going to be like a guide once they get outside

Sorry, femanon. Can i lick you pussy?

Yes, because what this manga about demons farming children for food clearly needs is an eleven-year old with enormous jugs.

>mystery manga more than a battle manga.
>(and a slow as fuck one if it keeps up this pacing)

IDK, as it stands they have only two weeks to find a way over the wall and evade recapture, since their goal is to get out before the next kid gets harvested.

I have no idea how things are going to progress, since the kids are probably gonna find in a chapter or two that the farm is like on an island or in space or something.
>>
>>145385570
>>145385101
What the fucking hell, you sicko. She is 11 year old, FUCKING 11 YEAR OLD.
>hurrr but this is fiction
Yeah, that's how it starts. If you support these shits, you support people sexualizing children, and then ends up supporting rape because people will start seeing this as normal.
Get your shit together or get out of here.
>>
>>145385962
Isn't it two months?

The pacing felt really good in this chapter definitely didn't feel slow.
>>
>>145385962
I prefer this phase desu

It's showing good strategy skills for the main characters while developing their characters

>>145385101

I am pretty sure there's going to be a time skip at some point of at least 2-3 years

>Isn't it two months?

you're right, they said "at least two months away".
which makes a lot more sense with an orphanage population of 40-50.
but then again it really raises questions about what the demons want so badly about eating smart kids that they'd have a gigantic farm that only yields maybe 5 or 6 a year.
>>
>>145386847
They're delicacies
>>
>>145386942
fucking demons are retarded at animal husbandry.

they're harvesting the most brilliant kids at like 11 or 12 rather than selectively breeding them to get even smarter kids next generation.
they wouldn't even have to wait more than like 30% longer.

I swear demons, do you even keikaku?

I think I have a theory on what the tests are for, that they probably don't "harvest" the smart kids for meat but use them for something else and the kids with the lowest scores are sent to be eaten. If you noticed there are only 5 kids that are 10+ years old and these 5 have the highest scores, growing up every other orphan their age was sent to be eaten while they remained due to having high scores which explains why the majority of kids are like 6 or younger. The younger kids have the lowest scores and at most only get half the questions right, not only that but Conny says that she didn't understand anything in the quiz earlier on and was sent to be harvested for meat and the demon talks about finally getting high quality goods and maybe don't harvest the smart scorers for whatever reason until they're older.
>>
>>145387846
I think they still do harvest them.
It's just a matter of pricing, probably.
There is no point to wait for dumb stock to grow up but the ones that constantly show good results are higher priced.
>>
>>145387846

This is what I was thinking too

I don't think they actually eat the smart ones but use them for something else. Even this whole thing of mama actually giving them a hint about the transmitters, feels like another test that they are giving them
>>
>>145387919
It still makes no sense

You don't get anything out of eating a smarter cow than you would eating a dumb cow
>>
>>145387846
> they probably don't "harvest" the smart kids for meat
> (posts pic of demon pointing to three smartest kids and says HARVEST some high quality GOODS)

anon, what are you even doing?
"goods" refers to cheap, non-durable and often consumable/disposable merchandise, not like something valuable.
>>
>>145388164
No, it just means something tangible, in contrast with servicies
>>
>>145388162
>you don't
Well, maybe they do gain something out of eating well developed human brains.
Maybe their memories or something and that's why it's a delicacy
>>
Where is WSJ anon?
>>
How do you guys think the direction is going to go

I highly doubt the entire series will be about these little turds playing intense hide and seek against these monsters, as much as I'd like that to happen

they're obviously going to get bullshit powers or weaponry
>>
>>145388640
It will all depend on what is actually outside the wall. I say they escape in about 4 chapters top
>>
>>145388640
The outside world will be either a Mad Max-style wasteland or completely ruled by the monsters. It's inevitable.

There is a lot of foreshadowing that indicates the monsters are the ruling species in Earth.
>>
>>145388780
>Mad Max-style wasteland

I hope this is the case. The robes the demons were wearing and the vehicle they were using makes me think that
>>
>>145388640
the escaped orphans makes a team name for themselves and call themselves the lost boys

they later end up meeting someone who has escaped long before they did and his name is peter pan, he can fly

"Mama" is actually evil as fuck, and one of her hands gets chopped off as punishment for letting valuable meat get away. She replaces her hand with a hook

My theory is that they will first destroy the watch, but fail on the first attempt to escape a bunch of kids will die and they will be forced to come back

On the second attempt they will most likely kill her for sure

It's to demonstrate that the kids are geniuses and to further deepen the mystery of why the demons would educate children if they're just going to end up as food.

It's called setting up the plot.

How is this padding? Because they don't immediately start throwing fireballs at the demons? This might not be the manga for you (or Jump, sadly).

>>145394041

For the moment they just need to get the two of them over the wall to see what the rest of the world is like, from there they'll make a final decision whether to build say a paid of ladders to get over the walls en mass or figure out some way to open the gate and get the rest of the kids out that way instead.

True, it's still very uncommon for shounen to do the whole "constant tragic deaths" thing though, which is part of why AoT was such a phenomenom

>>145384423
I feel like the little kids won't believe them and end up telling mama and foiling the escape plans.
>>
>>145398834
That's possible yeah, though I was wondering if they were even going to tell them much about why they want to escape, to avoid frightening them.
>>
>>145398834

This is kind of my fear with the pacing - there's going to be an issue or two getting mama's watch, an issue getting some rope, an issue bringing the third of their trio into their fold, an issue of them trying to convince the other kids they need to escape, a couple of issues setting up the elements of their plan, with maybe a few issues of them going over the wall to sort stuff out.

Great in a tankobon but it'll be torture in a weekly format.

I'm calling it now Emma and Norman are going to fuck up, Ray already figured out their intent or has known about the farm business for a while and he'll be the only reason they can escape.
Norman has deathflags all over his fuckin face.

Theory I'm ehhhh about:
One of the kids is intended to replace Mama.
i.e. one of them is a traitorous dick
If any of the trio gets 'left behind to die' that'd be the one.

>>145407715
it's potentially date related, since the third column went from 1s to 2s with increasing age on the monster's list, and the only other kid with a visible number had a 3 and looked a bit younger than the main trio.

for a farm of this size, a year code and up to 100 kids of any birth year seems adequate for labeling.
>>
>>145408388
this is frankly along the lines of the best plan.

> attack and detain Mama
> torture for intel about outside world
> kill her for being a collaborator at the end anyway

they're going to waste too much time trying to just avoid her scrutiny while learning nothing whatsoever about their future challenges.

Just look at how the artist is representing him as a really nice and gentle fellow. There's 3 paths to go from here, first is he dies and becomes a driving force for the MC, 2nd is he sacrifices the other kids so the trio can escape and at the same time sparing MC of making that tough choice and the 3rd one is all the kids enter a bboy dance-off competition with the ayyliums for their freedom

How are nips reacting to this chapter?

Ray is supposedly a walking encyclopedia. Maybe he figured out that the world outside is fucked up from all the books he has read and he will reveal like this:

>>
>>145409708
>Norman will get caught they'll think he's dead until he gets revealed as Dad. Wew lads

he's already shown enough hints of being a deceptively ruthless fuck, but he was already slated for plucking.
his market value is simply too high to pass, and Mama is more easily replaceable if she gets killed in the escape or whatever

The thing is that we can only read impressions on Twitter and 2ch and neither are the mainstream audience of Jump.

He's not actively looking to sell anybody out, but it's clear he's only even bothering with Emma and Ray since he thinks they increase his own chance of survival.

He'll probably agree to take along some of the younger kids on the escape just so he can use them later as bait/distraction when he gets into a pinch.
>>
>>145409355
or staring off in the direction of escape - his schtick is spending all his time with his nose in books about the outside.

What I think fairly clearly rules him out as a traitor is that his serial number is on the Demon's list seen in chapter 1 >>145387846 (it's, interestingly enough, the second one down, not the perfect scoring one which is norman)

>>145408520

More likely the final 2 digits are referencing the farm they're on, as all the children's serial numbers end in 94. The next digit is not year of production neccesarily, because on the demon's list we see there's someone with -194 ending who's only 10, and then a 7 year old with a -294 ending. There's also a much younger kid with a -394 ending early on in the first chapter.

first 2 numbers are then either "batch type" or origin, or some other classification system as yet unexplained.

One thing this means though: There is likely at least 94 other "farms".

His character arch type is suspicious, plus it would be an obvious twist for easy conflict and drama. We suspect him because of genre conventions more than anything.

Personally, I hope he doesn't die or become manipulative / evil / selfish. That would be the biggest shock.

The numbers could indicate their breed (ethnicity) or gender.
Is a number consistent across all male characters vs female characters?

There is a distinctly Asian kid here (>>145392091) so clearly different ethnicities are a thing in this setting.

They straight up said so in the first chapter

Both Emma and Norman are clearly Caucasian but their numbers are nowhere similar and Ray seems more on the Asian side so that doesn't sound right
>>
>>145410971
there's no consistency among anything except ending in "94" at this point.

the middle digit could be something like an expected meat grade/harvest age, since in the score-sorted list, the top kids end with 194s and then 294s.

I didn't like so much the second chapter. They seemed too smart. I know they are geniuses, but that excess of calculation can end up ruining the dark tone and mysterious atmosphere. I rather they were normal kids.

It's a jump start so the english WSJ will drop it after next chapter, which means that only scanlations will exist of it unless english WSJ puts it into their main roster (which they could, with Nisekoi and Bleach and Toriko ending).

and it should be noted that no groups are currently scanlating it atm so next week could be the last english chapter.

I don't read much manga but I remember the mysteries of some proto-manga in Bakuman made me project if I was jap and could follow the publishing weekly, it would have been interesting... I actually can but it's not the same with scans.

Do you have recommendations of some lesser known but interesting mysteries published in Shounen Jump, and possibly interrupted quickly? I want to experience the waste of this magazine.

Also, good and finished ones would be nice too. (thanks and sorry)

No way Ray isn't in on this. Having all that knowledge and not noticing what Emma and Norman have. He's probably already got an escape route planned.

There is really no way 50-60 kids are getting out. Norman didn't even consider them escaping at first, only when Emma brought it up did he change his tune.

From a writing standpoint, it would just end up being a bitch to properly write about so many characters and have them survive in such a hostile world.
>>
>>145410202
>Aside from suggesting to escape with just his two closest friends he has not done anything suspicious

He's clearly being set up as the pragmatic one of the bunch. A guy who cares about his core of friends, and is willing to do whatever it needs to be keep them safe. It's pretty obvious he really doesn't want to save 50-60 kids and take care of them in a hostile environment, so something about that issue is going to have to be done.
>>
>>145412531
>They seemed too smart.
Not really. They thought getting a rope would enable them to make a flawless escape, without any consideration for other traps or variables. They can deduce, but they can't predict very well, which is what really matters in survival.
