The Neverland Promise: Anime will debut in January 2019

Exclusive promotion



The number 26 of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump announces that the television adaptation of The Promised Neverland manga (Yakusoku Neverland) by Kaiu Shirai and Posuka Demizu will be released in January 2019 in Fuji TV's noitaminA block. The magazine also shows the first sketches of the character designs of Emma, Norman and Ray.


Emma is an orphan who lives in Grace Field House with other foster children, including Norman and Ray, with whom Emma always gets the best scores in the daily exams they must do. Emma realizes that although they can do whatever they want, what they do not allow is to go beyond the door that connects the house with the outside world. One night Conny, one of the orphans, is sent away to be adopted and Emma realizes that the boy has left his beloved bunny Bernie. When Emma leaves with Norman and Ray to take the rabbit to the child, they discover that Conny has died and that the house is actually a farm where they are reared and then harvested and fed by demonic creatures. Also, the woman who takes care of them, Isabella, is the one who has the agreement with the demons. Now the children will have to warn the rest and draw a plan to escape from that place.

Shirai and Demizu launched the manga on the pages of the Weekly Shonen Jump in August 2016 and its eighth volume compilation went on sale on April 4. The work currently has 4.2 million copies.
