Chapter 5 is out with Nigga Mama!

What a misleading chapter title

I feel clickbaited

How in fuck's name are they going to escape on their own now?

They just keep running into even more walls

>>146745977
that's what's cool. normal children means more stakes, risks, suspense, drama. now, even if they escape, I don't care, because they're just strategy robots.
>>
>>146745074
i think the nigger mama is actually a demon in disguise, if so it gives us insight on how they took over the human world. Also it could mean that normal human society still exist and the demons are hiding amongst them by disguising themselves as human.
>>
Manga with elementary schooler protagonists usually get axed, right?
>>
>>146745829
by normal do you mean cookie-cutter shounen manga stereotypes? Cause that sounds awful

Also its obvious to me the mother was grooming them on purpose, like she wants them to escape and outsmart her

Sorry, this artist draws them really young, so I got confused.

I disagree, I always find emotional people cringeworthy at best or an excuse to stir up fake drama at worst.

It's possible some will be involved, because of FemMC's stubborness. I'd prefer not, thought, because that'd mean a more unrealistic plan.

But I'm not saying that needs to be overdramatic. But a bit of "heart" would be good to give humanity to those children.

You could see them crying over Mama being a enemy during the first 3 chapters

I think that's enough crying otherwise it would get annoying
>>
I don't think they will all escpe; blond guy will remain behind, presumed dead and come back as a villain after a timeskip.

of ocurse if this series doesn't get canned
>>
>>146746715
If you are a good writer, you finds a way.
>>146746764
In the last four chapters, 99% were they drawing plans, 1% was comic relief with the girl. When she thought about Mama in chapter 5 I thought "finally something more intimate", but no, it was, again, aiming the investigation.

After all, Neverland is more plot driven than character driven. In a weekly shonen magazine, this is not a good thing.
>>
>>146745074
>better to assume they're closer to the equator because 4 seasons
You can't be serious.
>>
>>146747093
This was told quickly through narration. The emotional connection is minimal.

You see, it is not necessary them to be crying all the time. That's not the point. But they act more humanely. The narrative is too didactic.
>>
>>146747743
If you were a good writer, you would have realize little children can't win without pure author fiat, so the story wouldn't even be written in the first place.
>>
>>146747743
It's way easier to write normal people, anon. He had to make them geniuses because the story needed it.
>>
>>146748617
>>146748726
Good writers like challenges. Only one character being a genius would be enough. But three? C'mon. My favorite chapter was the first precisely because they were still more naive.
>>
>>146749175
Normal kids would have been found out by now.

Its a psychological thriller. Its way more fun when both sides of the war can fight.

>>
>>146750834
I like the child geniuses approach. It's not like it's unheard of in reality, and the setting supports it pretty well -- the farms are specifically made for gifted children to grow. So why wouldn't the three who have nearly survived to complete brain maturity (I think this is erroneous but let's roll with it) be able to think their way out of these situations? They aren't inhuman either like some are suggesting, except Ray who hasn't had much panel time yet.

Plot Twist: His hands were shaking of excitement because he is a sadist.

>>146750305
It will become Darker Gash Bell. The fact Elites need their brains makes me think that kids are a source of energy to keep them stronger than the rest of the demons.

maybe some "imagination" related bullshit that allows demons to have all sorts of wacky shonen battle manga powers. they will end up befriending a demon that finds out that alive children grant them way more power than dead ones.
>>
>>146750305
The problem is the story to be focusing only on the "fight". For now, they are more tools than people. Then (at least for me) it's hard to care about characters who act in such a technical way.

it's probably stressful and tiring for demon to use their power for disguise.

>>146758399

The fact they can do that gives them the element of suprise even further. Unless every one dies or they escape the farm with asspull powers this is going nowhere.

I'm guessing that they lack the human factor for them to act like a mother or they can't control themselves by being close to humans for a long period of time

I really hope it doesn't, but I know it probably will. I'm thinking it'll probably just eventually turn into that in order to avoid being axed, then ultimately get axed a few weeks later.

My main issue is that the story's setting is perfect for a rushed, early ending, like "wow, we made it! Time to see what's out there... - fin".

I can already see it. The humans on the outside will have some superpowers to fight the demons and they will teach it to the MCs.

How the FUCK are they going to get around this shit? i mean if they get some free time somehow they can finally see what's beyond the wall and shit but what if the whole farm is high up and beyond the walls is just a huge fall all around and the only way to get out is through the gate that has a narrow slope going up towards the mountain like farm? if the farm isnt on top of a huge place like that then it could only be out in the open and forest is just beyond the wall but that shit would mean that all they need to do is get rid of the trackers and run for it and that would be just too easy of an objective. this is so fucking confusing.

With enough books, that kind of deduction shouldn't be out of reach to a kid of 12 years.

I remember reading about this kind of shit when i was 13, something about a science book was telling me that in order to have electromagnetic waves reach vertain devices there needed to be this and that or another and another time i also had to read a piece about transmitters to the class back in grade 9 which i did a lot of research in and turns out that back in 2002 the current year of my research we couldn't make one's that could last more than 12 months let alone small enough to slip into your body. or maybe i was just a retarded kid who did a limited amount of research in order to get a passing mark.

you forgot the scenario they are in, they are being taught basic logic and intelligence and there is nothing to do in that place other than play with your "siblings" and read books. So if someone is not interesting in playing around, like that dude, all he can do is read books.
>>
>>146761172
What I meant was that it would be much more interesting if their intelligence was not the only focus. In this case, a genius character would be better than 3. Stop assuming I want stereotypical things.
>>
>>146761913
This would only happen if you were a lousy writer. Good writers work with challenges, they find ways without ruin the consistency of the story.

I don't really understand some people here. I think they read a lot of bad manga and are traumatized because whenever less convenient ways are suggested, they automatically cogitate that the worst will happen. You can not suggest more drama because they think it will turn soap opera. You can not suggest only one character to be smart, because they think it will be the stereotypical genius. You can not suggest risks because they think that the manga would end in the first chapter.
>>
>>146770464
Because none of these suggestions really work for this manga? This set-up is pretty neat as it is, why change it?

The kids aren't emoting enough! Well, that's better, drama in WSJ tends to be over the top and cringeworthy.
Each kid being a different kind of genius gives more possibilities, why cut that off?


It's more like this story doesn't appeal to you, which is fine, so you should just move on.

>It's more like this story doesn't appeal to you, which is fine, so you should just move on.
Well, if the only goal is to be a logical game, great. But if it is to be a "survival" drama about children trying to save their friends in a cruel place, it is not working. The only thing we know about the characters so far is that they are good thinkers. They lack life.
>>
>>146771452
>They lack life.

Says you
>>
>>146771452
>The only thing we know about the characters so far is that they are good thinkers. They lack life.

That's like your opinion on it.

Granted, the story (so far) seems to be more plot driven that character driven, and I can understand if that doesn't appeals to you. Still, I believe it's a little early to be demanding compelling characterization from it.
>>

I'll follow it for a bit more, but I'll probably drop it eventually. None of the characters interest me, except Mother I guess. The three protagonists in particular seem to be standard cardboard cut-out shounen personalities. The setting might save it, but I doubt it'll end up being a compelling character-driven story.
