It was really interesting.
I like how they're not making the Mama's fall to the kids much at all.
Things are actually fairly even for the most part, even more against the kids at times, which keeps the suspense just right.
Too much success and the kids would seem like mary sues. Too much failure and the idea of them making it out in the end seems like a copout.
So far it's been a good mix, so it seems possible, but difficult.
A Neverland anime will definitely benefit from strong, visual direction over good animation, unless it's going to be action-heavy from the escape on.
Ishihama would be my personal pick for the director since he excels at horror imagery.
That page just prompted that thought, that's all. People have been bringing up an anime adaption before Neverland even started to rank and discussed which studio rather than which core staff.
Good chapter and this is easily the most interesting panel we've seen so far.
Neverland omake from Jump X (Cross). Slowly dumping with translations.
>Right After the New Year

>(cough cough cough)

>Who did you hear that from?
>The book says here, "Idiots don't catch colds."
>Won't give up

>Then let me catch it.
>Then we'll get to be together!

>they will stall the escape day for a flashback of krone and mama
No, fucking retards, you will only slow me down
>All the siblings together
>And so they were restrained.
>Why are you so determined? We should do what Mama says......
>Plus, shouldn't you let Norman rest?
>But whenever Norman gets sick like that he's all by himself you know? He's lonely!

>(Waaa) (Oooo) (Yay)
>Is this really okay...

>(Uooo) (uu uu)
>Was he kidnapped?
>We found harbs* in the forest!

RIP cute neesans. Maybe they're studying to become Mamas now.
>The Next Day

>Here, this is for you.
>Come on, Emma!!
>I can't take my eyes off you for even one second.
>Talk to you later, Norman.
>Now we can talk to you from outside!
Too bad I never leave my house other than to buy groceries.
Another wasted skill.
post your face when you realize some of the kids in omake are not in the manga because they were already shipped off and eaten
Assumptions based on direct information presented to us by the manga, yeah. But is it really "assumption" at that point? I assume the sky is blue, because all information available to me says it's blue. Only technically is it an assumption.
"Their side of the world"
So does this imply that humans and demons each control an equal portion of the world?
Perhaps human society is living in peace with the demons, but still letting them farm children "for the greater good".
In which case I can see Emma not putting up with that shit, and roping the Norman/Ray into bringing down both the humans and the demons.
how to write a neverland chapter
>we need to do X
>discuss keikaku to do X over multiple pages
>world lore unlocked! [4% total completion]
>"heh, good job kids... but what about Y!"
>not always attractive
God, I hope it won't end like Doubt or else I'll cry
Wewlad, almost got shipped off to (((THEM))).
>The kids are all half-demons which is why they're so smart and have to be harvested/put in stasis before they transform
>Oh and the MC is the specialist because their dad is the demon king
>he thought they were actually demons
I don't think demons would live in houses made out of pipes and drive trucks around. But i don't think they're aliens either, my bet is that it's the far future and they are some form of superhumans gone wrong.
>tfw emma and friends will join the resistance lead by the minerva guy
>tfw the minerva guy is planning to genocide the complying humans as well prompting emma fight him as well and established "The Promised Neverland" rebel group
They appeared in a flashback of all the departed kids and now in the omake, considering they were 12 when they left and were raised by Isabella supposedly the "best mama" there's a chance they're alive and training to become mama's
This is the first male we've seen. However, the way that Krone talked about it implies that this isn't the first adult male she's ever seen. Can boys in the farm survive for special jobs too?
What's the meaning of "That's right! In the beginning, we also..." that Isabella is thinking?
She's reminiscing when she was a kid and she tried to escape too, and she's expecting her kids to do the same moves she did with her group
before they were all slaughtered?
Yeah. She actually looked nice in the first chapter she was introduced in, turned into a caricature for the next few chapters and recently she's been ok-looking. Maybe an editor asked to tone it down a bit?
>Promised Neverland becomes a sequential-style manga, hopping from death trap to death trap
>Emma is the only survivor each time, maintaining her optimism as each time she declares THIS is the time she'll save everyone
>Becomes increasingly hollow and despondent as the series goes on
>The lives lost for her sake wearing on her more and more
Would not be the worst twist imaginable.
Krone says "their side" because that's what it is to her. The only world she has ever known is the one where demons rule, she doesn't know how big it is or where it is (or at least that's what she claims). The demons control part of the world, but I doubt it's an "equal" portion.
Something very odd here, it's the same word as the name of the demon boss, BUT it's rotated 180°
Wow, nice catch anon.
At first I assumed that the name was unpronounceable to humans, but this chapter seemed to proved that humans can pronounce it, but for some reason they say it backwards.
Was Krone lying about Isabella being born in a farm in 2014?
This implies something to me. What if the existence of these farms is kept secret from most of humanity? The farms are in a hidden place that only a few select allies of the demons know about.
Keep in mind that MS rotated it anyway to fit the text orientation so it's possible that they messed up (unless someone has confirmation that it's also backwards in the raw).
I'm more skeptical of the dates.
The kids have just been assuming that the dates in the books are accurate representations of a rough timeline for the state of humanity versus the evident appearance of demons, alongside what year they have been told it is.
But in actuality, there's no reason to assume that these presumptions are anywhere near remotely accurate, and that the date they've grown up believing may be entirely false.
I think the dates are accurate since I don't see what benefit there is for the demons in using fake dates, especially since we've seen these dates in Mom's official documentation. What I believe this chapter implies is that the demons have co-existed with humanity for a long time (whether or not most of humanity knows about this is another story).
>Your goal should be to blend in to their society
And now we know how the keikaku shenanigans are going to continue once they escape. They're going to have to pretend to pretend to be normal children in a world they barely know, with agents of the demons constantly looking for them.
They're going to have to cover their neck tattoos at all times.
I've said it before and I'll say it again.
The demons remind me of the 456 from Torchwood: Miracle of the Earth, who also consumed children and had humans collaborating with them.
Humans co-existing with the demons might explain the tracking devices too. Humans have continued to develop ,and tech that was impossible in 2015 is now achievable in 2045.
>this chapter implies is that the demons have co-existed with humanity for a long time
It wouldn't surprise me if the Mythology book that William Minerva put no message in contains information on the demons.
You speed read the the chapter didn't you.
Apparently There's a group of humans that are on equal ground with the "demons" a completely different society than the one Krone and Isabella are a part of.
He is from said society, he's free, while she and the other mama's are technically nothing but slaves raising livestock.
You misunderstood my comment. I'm perfectly aware that there are humans on equal grounds with the demons, what I meant was that I was wondering if there are any adult males inside of Krone and Isabella's slave society, as inf if there are any boys that survive the farm.
Could just be a japanese approxamation of welsh.
>I was wondering if there are any adult males inside of Krone
I'm guessing about the nature of the demons / how the world ended up like that.
She answered pretty quickly that she has no idea at all but that's a little bit suspicious. She's been around a whole lot longer and in multiple places. She could possibly have some ideas.
Guess I'm the leader of this operation.
I manually dug out the correct answers, so compare:
how did Krone become a mama candidate, acing the tests until age 12, when so far she's been shown to be significantly less smart than ray or norman?
I guess it's as big a flaw as Emma being slow and imperceptive.
>when so far she's been shown to be significantly less smart than ray or norman
Not really. She underestimated them at first, but it's clear she's still very smart and has more experience. In this chapter she tricked them into revealing that they already knew about the trackers in the ear.
>to become a Mama you must fight other candidates
I now think we'll likely have an arc with Emma in the training to become a Mama. maybe because everyone died or as a plan to infiltrate the place or simply that she got separated from the rets while escaping and it was that or be food.
Either way, there's definately interest in seeing Emma goign through such a selection; of all the kids she's the most family oriented so a place where she has to protect herself not just from adults but from other girls trying to backstab her would be interesting as it would be a challenge for her positive and caring outlook.
I'm cofnused as to why Krone needs them to verbally say they want to escape. The way it is, even fi they tell her she'll have no proof but her own word if she tells the higher ups. In that case, she could just as well say so now.
Better find someone smarter than me.
Hey, please take me with ya.
Mama's gotta eat something.
Mama selection process is literally dividing an entire school of wannabes into one mama and a full pantry.
and the escape is going to fail and Emma is going to have to survive such a school
That Demon is a Wu-Tang fan
Idk how some of your retards score so low
