    ISABELLA. 😪👏🏼 I knew she wasn’t a total bitch. The moment when she realizes something about Ray. Heartbreaking. I’ll be rooting for her.So apparently, the outside world is full of danger. No shit. The kids are proving themselves to be surprisingly competent so far. I’m VERY proud. Anyways, tell me more about that girl now. 👀🔍

    Just when you think you're nearing the end or the story can't get any better than that Kaiu Shirai surprises you. Reading this manga thus far has been very pleasant and has been keeping on my toes.

    Holy hell this just got 1000 times better!The kids escaped!But instead of a lovely world full of butterflies and sunshine, they were greeted by a forest even more creepy than their own and HORRIBLE monsters, and they have to run to ensure their own survival!I'm really enjoying how the story is progressing and how the world is expanding bit by bit. (view spoiler)[WHAT ON EARTH WAS THAT HOODED FIGURE THAT RESCUED RAY IN THE END????????? (hide spoiler)]

    Death can wait. I will escape with these siblings of mine. Actual rating: 3.75☆Huge character development for Ray in this volume -have I already said Ray is my favourite character?We also get to see a Isabella's back story, which was kind of bittersweet to read.

    Wow, what a series! After watching the anime I decided to start the manga from where it ends. The anime covers four-and-a-half volumes of the (at this date) 13 volume manga. The kids are out of the soyent farm, but not out of the clutches of their captors. It is interesting to see the inner dialogue of Isabella here compared to the silent context in the anime. I can't wait to read the next volume and keep up with this remarkable series.

    I don’t normally do long reviews but I have so many thoughts about this book! When getting into this volume, a part of me was a little worried about how the author would keep up the suspense and excitement after the kids escape Grace Field House. I thought of the show Prison Break and how the story went down hill after the second season. I don’t want TPN to suffer the same fate and I must say so far I have nothing to worry about. First off, the escape plan was executed awesomely. I love the conf I don’t normally do long reviews but I have so many thoughts about this book!

I thought of the show Prison Break and how the story went down hill after the second season. I don’t want TPN to suffer the same fate and I must say so far I have nothing to worry about. First off, the escape plan was executed awesomely. I love the confidence and faith these kids have in each other to pursue freedom even though they aren’t 100% certain what lies in the outside world. It was great to finally see Ray (view spoiler)[ discard his deathwish and exchange it for a will to live and protect his family at all costs. I love that Norman/Emma’s seemingly impossible plan to rescue everyone proved Ray wrong (honestly my heart was in my throat as they glided over the cliff with really strong COAT HANGERS). He was so amazed with the progress the other kids made. The two month training definitely paid off. (hide spoiler)]. I want to commend Shirai’s portrayal of Isabella as more of a complex human being rather than a purely evil person who enjoys/is apathetic about seeing her children die. I like that we got to see more about her personal history. Of course, It doesn’t justify her willingly supplying the demons with the “shipments” but I believe all Isabella wanted was to survive (view spoiler)[ which is why she gave up escaping the farm as a child and returned to become a Mother rather than demon food and got rid of Sister Krone to prevent her from usurping her position. (hide spoiler)] And I believe she loves the children in her own way: (view spoiler)[Keeps all the deceased children’s toys in her secret room rather than disposing them, saw her younger self in Emma and suggested become a Mom to live a longer life, extended the kids lives as long as she could before they were shipped off, and finally hid the ropes the escaped kids used to cross the cliff. Isabella accepted a long time ago that life on the farm would never change and made it as enjoyable and loving as she could. In Chapter 37 she says “I just wish I could’ve loved them normally” which made me so sad. It was also revealed that Ray is her biological son! It was spoiled for me but I had my suspicions. (hide spoiler)]The outside world is mystery to both the children and the audience. We don’t know what other beings reside there except (view spoiler)[ for the demons of lower intelligence, blood-sucking plants and a mysterious hooded person who may or may not be trusted. (hide spoiler)]So far I’m really enjoying the adventure angle and how the encounters in the forest parallel with William Minerva’s book. The twists and cliffhangers in this series are so well done, I don’t get the impression that Shirai is losing any steam. Questions that need answers: (view spoiler)[1) Where is Norman? I don’t believe he’s dead but I think he’s been assigned a special position. Sister Krone had mentioned to Norman and Emma that there are humans from outside the farm who supply food and clothing. I’ve read theories from Reddit that allude to Norman being trained as a scientist of sorts (like the man who Sister Krone saw conversing with a demon and dropped that pen) or perhaps a sperm donor to increase production of high quality goods *shudders* He’s my favourite character so I’m itching to know what happened to him. 2) What will happen to Isabella now? Will she be demoted or killed and replaced by a new mom? 3) Who is William Minerva and is he a real person who is on the protagonists’ side or could he be working for the demons?4) Who is the hooded person and are they friend or foe?

Let’s break it down.Emma and Ray have been so strong, Emma especially. Not only did she continue her own sneaky planning while injured, but now she’s taken quite a few leads during the escape. Her knowledge of the two strange books have helped her get out everyone out of a tough bind with some vampiric plants... and no, that’s not the beginning of a joke. Ray... holy crap, I mean, I had a hunch about the twist, but getting it confirmed was still shocking. As for the end, I don’t know how I feel about this plan of his - especially with Emma down for the count.Don and Gilda have really stepped up after what happened to Norman. They have become great leaders in their own right, and the children respect the two of them a lot. It’s great to see them shine in their own ways - although they still have a lot to learn.Isabella and her backstory are extremely sad... we all had a hunch that the girl from a flashback last volume was her, and it was confirmed. She, too, watched friends sent of to die. She, too, tried to escape, but lost all hope at the sight of the cliff... and so she adapted and became something cold and closed off, the only path left to her besides death. It adds quite a bit to her character. And that was great.William Minerva is someone I am greatly curious about. How has he managed to sneak in so many clues? How did he have the access to do so? Is he really still around? Could it all be an elaborate trap? I need to know!The outside world is scary and a huge unknown, but I enjoyed what we did get to learn - about the trees, the plants that hold water inside... there’s so much to learn! 4 stars out of 5.

I had worried the series would be about constantly scheming to get out but never actually leave the orphanage. Fortunately, with this Volume 5 they are finding new clues in a whole different world unlike anything for which their books have prepared them.Story: Ray and Emma have planned for months and now the escape is happening. Mother watches helplessly as the orphanage goes up in flames and the demons demand answers. But she is also resigned to the machinations put into place by the children. Can Emma, Ray, and 15 kids survive the horrors of the outside world if they do actually manage to escape?It would have beggared belief that a bunch of smart kids could survive a whole different world than expected. Fortunately, they were left clues by William Minerva that they are now just beginning to recognize. It broadens the picture nicely and builds the tension and plot quite neatly to the point where you want to eagerly turn the page to read what is going to happen next. Of course, there is quite a cliffhanger in this volume.In all, I am greatly enjoying The Promised Neverland. Each volume has been engrossing, the story and plot quite well thought out and nuanced, and the characters interesting. There's more than enough mystery to keep this going for quite awhile. Reviewed from an advance reader copy provided by the publisher.

    The problem here is character inconsistency. Suddenly Emma is extremely smart. Basically, we've combined her character with Norman's. Yes, the change in her determination is accurate, but there has been almost too many strides in such a short time of two months.

    Solid 4 stars, this volume is a bit slower in pacing due to the fact that the kids are barely escaping. But I liked seeing the kids working together and stepping up when needed. Being outside is terrifying because of all the threats they know and down know about. This may sound weird, but I miss the hovering tension Mama gave being the main villain. So, the second chapter is where the anime ended. Just saying, that reveal of Ray being Isabella’s son, was pretty chilling.

This may sound weird, but I miss the hovering tension Mama gave being the main villain. So, the second chapter is where the anime ended. Just saying, that reveal of Ray being Isabella’s son, was pretty chilling. Now, here’s the thing about Isabella. Yeah she’s the villain but, she’s a captivating villain whose view I can understand. She’s really just as captive to the demons as the kids are. She became a Mama for the wish to live just a little longer, because she is afraid of the demons. She wanted to have at least a touch of power over them. She is the one providing them their food. She admitted defeat seeing the kids leave, she also bid the kids a farewell and genuinely hoped them well. She wished she could’ve done better to make the kids live a peaceful life without any knowledge of the demons and their fates. She got rid of all evidence of where they escaped. And she knows that Phil knows. But she doesn’t seem like she’ll make a move against him.Oh, here we go, into uncharted territory. From here on out I have no idea, like the kids, what the hell is out there. Okay, can we talk about how soft it was of Ray to apologize to Emma and Anna for what they did and Anna just responded with happy birthday. Bitch I’m emo. And Ray promising to protect the others no matter what, HIS DEVELOPMENT guys!So, the kids ended up in this layer of earth hidden under the forest. It’s beautiful down there but they run into an odd plant that feeds off animals. They soon realize that everything, not just demons are dangerous. But Emma realizes that Minerva’s books are actually a guide to help whoever escaped survive the outside world. They run into a rogue demon and can I say how proud I am of Don and Gilda leading the kids away from the demon. I am loving the trust that Emma and Ray are sharing, as well as the trust they’re placing on the other kids. Just when we think that everything’s going to go better, guess who shows up? The evil demons, love that for me. Luckily or unluckily depending on how you look at it, Ray is left alone. He has no noice but to run in the opposite direction to stray the demons away from his family. Which leaves him separated from the other kids until they get to Minerva’s. While this is happening Emma falls ill and someone mysterious appears to help. I just want to know where Norman is because damn it I stand by my theory that he’s still alive. Also, can I just say Phil is like the brightest kid. Fight me on this, he knew the whole time and he’s one of the youngest kids. Nevertheless I’m still excited to see what else is out there, if Minerva is truly trustworthy. If Norman is alive, somewhere.

    I've been reading TPN since it was barely leaving the initial GF arc. It's not just good, it's about the best shonen manga I've read, ever. Excellent characters & development, interesting & tight, well-executed plots, near no boring filler whatsoever, just enough horrible situations to raise stakes without turning it into some grimdark tragedy where you think the best outcome would be for someone to just end the entire cast. I don't think a single chapter has disappointed me so far.One o I've been reading TPN since it was barely leaving the initial GF arc.

I don't think a single chapter has disappointed me so far.One of my favorite things is hope and love and sparkles!! winning out, but also those not being framed as stupid - our protagonist Emma is a fantastic representation of this. She's idealistic and trustful and kind and wonderful, while smart and resourceful and realistic when it matters. Just about the best protagonist a manga could have. When the whole plot is about surviving and having a better life, about helping their kin, about making a better world than it is now, about living because others couldn't, you /need/ someone like Emma leading the way. You just can't help but cheer on her and hope she'll get the results she wants.Aside from that, I'll say the artwork is /incredible/, madly detailed, with amazing intricate backgrounds and a cast of hundreds of people who don't look alike and don't suffer from same-face syndrome. It's a shame this edition doesn't include the color pages, because the artist's work is beyond amazing and it should be fully appreciated.

    The Promised Neverland Volume 5 picks up where volume 4 ended and the perfect place to start reading after the conclusion of the first Season of the anime if you don't want to read the Jailbreak arc from the beginning which you should because it is a great manga. We pick off for a new tone of the series that not everyone will be a fan of because since they are outside the farm now gone is the dynamic of the battle of the wits between the kids, Isabella, and Krone.

Which kinda sucks but it's understandable given the fact its a new area so with it ts going to bring a new tone, but it won't be everyone's cup of tea. As the secrets of the world are starting to get revealed in the Promised Neverland which will most likely be apart of the next volume. In conclusion, promised neverland volume 5 sets a new tone and the series in a different direction. For now it's too early to tell if that's a good or bad thing but the final of the JailBreak arc is still great in the Manga as it was in the anime although the anime did it better. Regardless volume 5 escape is worth a read and I can't wait to see what happens next as the mystery is slowly being solved.

    What I think this series does better then the Walking Dead and other post apocalyptic stories is that there is a end goal. It isn’t just survivors surviving a shitty situation. Of course it makes it better that there is interesting events that happen between the start and end. But it doesn’t feel like the plot is wandering around aimlessly. Some of my favorite series like Berserk or at times I Am A Hero felt like it wasn’t sure where to go to next. Everything in this Manga feels very fleshed out What I think this series does better then the Walking Dead and other post apocalyptic stories is that there is a end goal.

However it does have that similar element of surviving against all odds which is why I keep comparing it to that series.

    The cliffhangers are why I continue reading, but I hate that I do. Some things are just so convenient. Either this is super intricately planned out, or the author is just writing loop holes so they can be like "we've been preparing for a long time" or pull out a secret item that is conveniently useful and exactly what they need. Its enjoyable, but I'm also hate reading it a bit. I also dont like how Mom is portrayed as a good person some times.

    It's amazing how much of a difference a clear mind can make.Observe. Analyze. Read the enemy.I finished the anime adaptation last week, IN A DAY. And since I can't wait for a whole year for season 2 I decided to read the manga. So if you want to continue the story, this is where the anime left it.By the way, they should put some TRIGGER WARNING in the cover so people +15 years old doesn't end up feeling like garbage after finding out that an 11 year old kid is more intelligent than you.

    IT KEEPS GETTING SMARTER AND BETTER! It’s actually scary, in a psychological “bigger picture”, almost lovecraftian way, which is so nice to see. I haven’t seen a lot of good horror manga that don’t rely solely on body horror and gore to be “scary”. You can really feel the tension of these characters and the world that they live in. As pieces start to unravel, new questions are always posed. And this manga easily has the best executed plot twists I have ever seen. They fail to disappoint me.

    2.5We have finally [i]finally[/i] made it to the kids' escape. This volume gets points for taking on a new story, but the art is distracting. The pencils are rough, sketchy, and under-inked, like they were rushed to meet a deadline. And that's not all that feels rushed. Revelations about Mother and Minerva aren't 'Wow' but 'What?" moments because hints that should (and could) have been laid out well before now are just dumped in your lap like big, fat deus ex machinas.
