I thought the spoilers mentioned that a couple was indeed waiting for Norman?
There is no way he's really dead though, otherwise the author would've drawn him clearly dead like every other character who has been killed thus far.
Artfag, must post NE because they're cute as fuck to the point where I can't ignore it anymore.
Norman you fucking moron, she starts showing signs you have a chance and you just go off to die.
As I expected we doesn't see his death".
He's 99% alive for me.
Romance isn't the theme here either (even if it's a pretty big part of Norman's character) and it's working out pretty well, feels natural. Most mangakas just seem to get lost there for some reason.
The difference is that TPN is a thriller and you can mix a lot of things in it. In a fighting shonen whose only goal is to show characters beating up each other just putting a romance in there out of nowhere is nothing but fanservice.
>Good morning, N...
This is not okay. Fuck me.
>yep, for the most part, at least
what is this madman bringing with him
>thinking he's actually gonna die
>Just one-sided feelings the other party is completely oblivious to that's not really the focus of anything
I'm feeling this in the pit of my stomach, god damn is this series good. The last time any manga or anime got this kind of response from me was when the Third Hokage died, and that was when I was eleven and didn't know any better, and after 100 episodes of buildup.
The twist to what the deal is with these demons and everything better be fucking good, I cannot handle this all having a disappointing payoff.
We're not going to see Norman for awhile but I know he won't be dead.
Or at least that's what I tell myself to avoid heavy heartache.
Don't worry guys. Emma is secretly a witch and will save everyone.
>Ginger genki girls love edgy guys.
The fuck is happening in this comic.
Please don't be sad, anons.
They need the three geniuses for Tifari, the special ceremony. Since Norman probably already reached peak potential, they are probably separating him and keeping him in a holding cell until the exact moment they need them for the ritual.
Assuming Mama is still evil that is. I get the feeling there is a little bit more to her than her being just another cog in the machine.
I was waiting for this thread the whole day.
>Emma was willing to shatter her bone even more for him
I can only think of a few that projects they nabbed after groups that were deep into the series went down, and those groups (Casanova, Imperial) went down because their raw providers get caught and I know for certain in Imperial's case that most of their scanlaters and redrawers went over to niggastream.
They all deserve to survive. They're a great trio.
Day 1 at the orphanage
>I WILL KILL ALL THE DEMONS
>ALL OF THEM
I tried to google translate and it's something about baseball and wanting to marry Emma.
I can't remember what I've already posted, I need to sort my folders out.
>Neverland getting more popular
>Will start getting threads on non-chapter days
>Eventual anime will be announced
>It'll become the hit 'MUH FEELS' anime of reddit
Considering Isabella has a keepsake of every child in her secret room, might she actually be honest about being happy that she met norman? There was no reason to keep up the facade at that point
Its simple really. Mama wants to break the spirits of the other two, but she also wants to mature norman for optimal harvest, so shes just going to trap him there until his birthday.
>yfw it's even more fucked up than the demons
BUT WHAT WAS PEN
This is cute.
Full log (20 pics):
The better argument is that WE LITERALLY SAW THE SCIENTISTS TALKING TO A DEMON
What kind of fucking theory is "the scientists are hidden"
They're doing a shitty job then.
>Uhg, the cattle are acting like they have human emotions again
delete this, Emma is pure and loyal.
That would be pretty cool. Methinks it's probably some kind of ritual sacrifice in front of all the head demons. Everyone feasts on the extra smart kids, everybody has a good time.
Ray x Mama is the superior ship.
I'll be pretty annoyed if Ray dies though. Emma's cute and Norman's nuce but Ray, Mama and when she was around Krone are what has been carrying the story so far I feel.
After this chapter I'd take any Emma x Norman. I hope he makes it and claims her as his waifu. Part of me is starting to think that this series is going to go the Shin Sekai Yori route with Emma and Ray, and if that happens I'll probably drop the manga.
All memes and jokes aside, I doubt it and I'm not even a shipper. I think the author is actually handling this love thing quite well and Norman's clearly not dying anytime soon. That he started developing stuff early gives me a good impression that he plans to go somewhere with it.
So anons, you think Norman would be okay as a breeder if didn't actually have to fuck anyone? I mean, he could just imagine what he actually wants, right? So would he accept the offer if it was made to him?
But then who makes more babies? Unless in this world they've managed to eliminate the need for males to conduct breeding or for sperm samples, it wouldn't do to have them become demons. We already saw what looked like a male scientist talking with a demon so as far was we know, Norman could be groomed to become
A) A scientist (the tests may be structured in a way that should they need more scientists, their prey will be mentally equipped for the task)
B) Breeding stock. He's smart, and if he's high quality and there haven't been many good "plants" in recent times, he could be used for that purpose.
D) Some undisclosed thing we're not privy to yet.
No, please, anything, but not this.
Norman sees clones of a bunch of him and other children
Each human farm is the same kinds of children being cultivated at different rates to find the most optimized upbringing for each kid
"Demons" are actually just humans
Sorry, I'll post cuter things then.
Yeah, pretty sure.
Yeah but that means the demons are basically eating their own kids which seems counterproductive. Not saying I'd put it past them morally but realistically it's not a sustainable method.
No, I know, that's what I figured. Norman's still pretty young though so they may have to wait a year or so before using him for the same purpose.
Nope, artfriend, post everything you want, TPN was literally created for angsty fanart, I like it and would probably draw something in a similar mood if I tried.
Despite everything, I'm simply afraid Norman will become the victim of subversion of readers' expectations.
Norman is my favorite character and I worry sometimes for him but I don't think the mangaka will disappoint us. Have faith, fellow Normanfag.
You've got me pegged, Sherlock.
Damn, there's just not enough fanart of Emma
That fanart hurts. I have it saved and I think the tweet said something like "don't go". It's definitely about Norman.
This one is mildly terrifying for some reason.
>tfw this fanart ended up being prophetic
This one's by far my favorite artist.
Can I be a faggot and ask for the source on that one? It's one of the few I've never seen before.
I'll help you out my EOP friend.
>What do you want to do once we get out here?
>I'm going to marry Emma
>A lively family life would be nice
>And I want enough kids for a whole baseball tea-
>You're going to play baseball?
>I want to play too!
>But then again we'd need 18 people
>It wouldn't be fun if you can't field two teams!
>Is that so? I'll give it my all then.
>Give it your all at what?
>Donny, "Unreadable name" Let's play baseball!
He didn't say that. He just said that normies are going to ruin being a fan of PNV because then you get associated with all those fucks who just jumped on the band wagon like with AoT and OPM, etc.
Based anon, thank you so much.
>And I want enough kids for a whole baseball tea
You're the best, artfriend. Thank you.
This may have been brought up in a previous thread but I'm a late comer to this series and this has been kind of bugging me.
So there are about 30 kids in the orphanage, give or take.
One adult to watch all of them.
What would happen if two kids were caught experimenting sexually or molesting a younger kid? Like, the girls are the only ones who change the babies diapers which is logical enough BUT girls aren't devoid of degenerate impulses, especially at young ages. Emma could have been finger banging an infant out of pure childish curiosity and none would be the wiser and that shit can fuck up a person mentally. So if a mama did stumble upon such a scene then what? Are both kids shipped out immediately because the meat is technically tainted?
For some reason I can't imagine sex ed being in the curriculum because they're not going to grow old enough to need to know how babies are made but shit can still happen naturally. Do you guys think a lot of sexual situations arise in these orphanages or what? Cause' I mean, it would be easy to sneak off into the forest and force a girl to suck your dick without mama finding out so I'm really trying to decide how I feel about it.
I'm asking a serious question. Sexual abuse is extremely prevalent in real orphanages and I'm trying to decide if the ones in series are sterile enough that the problem is nonexistent or not. Heres a small example.
>The report, conducted by the German Youth Institute, found that suspected cases of abuse were registered in 70 percent of all orphanages over the last three years. In 82 percent of cases, the alleged victims were female, news agency AFP reported. In half of all cases, the suspected culprits were under the age of 14. The findings, which were gathered from about 1,500 orphanages, as well as ordinary schools and boarding schools, sparked outrage from child protection agencies on Wednesday.
Thats 70% out of 1,500 institutes. Those numbers are staggering so I'm leaning towards some form of sexual abuse more than likely being present here.
Do you think mama is the one doing it?
I know the rates are high in real life but this is a manga where the kids are nice and love each other. Emma hasn't been fingering toddlers.
The resident waifufag never even tried anything so I severely doubt anything went down.
In a lot of cases, its not the caregivers that are responsible for the abuse - though they definitely do it too - but what I'm talking about are children doing it to other children. It doesn't have to be Emma, that was just an offhanded example. Phil could have been finger banging Conny in the woods during playtime before she was shipped off, it doesn't matter because its not the important part. I'm asking what you think would happen. Would both parties be shipped out with no questions asked or just the victim?
Do you think the brain of a sexual deviant tastes sour or sweet?
I don't think it will be such a big deal to begin with.
Even if some premature horny kid fingered some other kid or even penetrate them, I don't think demons will care. For what we have saw, demons are especially interested in the human brain more than the rest of the body. And isn't not like you care if chickens or cows were pregnant or they copulated before you ate them. You can tell the difference.
I predict that the true purpose of the orphanage is to groom a perfect host body to be possessed by a demon, The imperfect kids just happens to be sold as luxury food. Norman is surprised at the end because he is being ushered to an hospital operation block. He will come back as a villain.
