Freedom or be Eaten?

This is a rather interesting story, about these kids figuring out a way to escape from a place that is not an orphanage, but a farm for demons. You really route for these kids and I can’t wait till the next volume is released

This is a very tense book. I was excited this whole entire volume! I love how smart and strategic the characters, especially Emma. My volume arrived in perfect condition. Viz did an amazing job on this release. That ending was amazing, I cannot wait for February!
An Instant Classic

I don't know why it took me so long to finally pick this series up, but now I can't imagine not having it in my collection. From amazing characters like Emma to the unique art style, this story instantly draws you in with its innocent, charming appeal and keeps you coming back for more when you learn everyone has there own agenda in this dark, psychological mystery. The Promised Neverland should be on everyone's radar and I want to thank Rightstuf for delivering it to me in such amazing condition.
Really cool storyline and full of suspense. The entire series is fun to read. I 100% recommend if you're into a kinda dark and creepy read.
Whimsical, Tense, and Refreshing
So I picked this up on a whim and was pleasantly surprised. Like many others have been pointing out, it is a tense story. Not so much in a horror sense but a psychological-thriller sense. The art is nice, the characters are very likable, and the set up to the story is insanely interesting. If you like manga where the main characters battle with their wits while dealing with intensely dire moments (death note being one example) then you are gonna love this.
