    A Peter Pan retelling like you've NEVER seen before!! Emma, Norman and Ray are the brightest kids at the Grace Field House orphanage. And under the care of the woman they refer to as Mom, all the kids have enjoyed a comfortable life. Good food, clean clothes and the perfect environment to learnwhat more could an orphan ask for? One day, though, Emma and Norman uncover the dark truth of the outside world they are forbidden from seeing.The PremiseThings in the redoubt come to an epic climax in The A Peter Pan retelling like you've NEVER seen before!! Emma, Norman and Ray are the brightest kids at the Grace Field House orphanage. And under the care of the woman they refer to as “Mom,” all the kids have enjoyed a comfortable life. Good food, clean clothes and the perfect environment to learn—what more could an orphan ask for? One day, though, Emma and Norman uncover the dark truth of the outside world they are forbidden from seeing.The PremiseThings in the redoubt come to an epic climax in The Promised Neverland vol 12!! We learn that Ray asked Hilda and Don to do some things for him before they left. The fruits of those efforts come into play. I really loved this because we aren't at the house anymore playing cat and mouse with Mother. The kids' enemies are at a much greater distance from them... So problems won't be happening day by day like they used to... no they will happen POW! unexpectedly. And that is just what happens!! They make a tiny bit of progress only to hit a wall of death...The BuzzLucas and Yugo were really essential in The Promised Neverland vol 12. We haven't really needed adults, any adults up to now. The kids wanted freedom. But they find themselves in a position against other humans... these aren't the monsters that will eat their brains if they aren't eradicated. I really loved that Kaiu Shirai went here. The kids reading this need to be empowered, but also know that there are times that adults have to step in. The FeelsWe check in with Phil!! YES!! Only he gets a visitor... and its NOT someone I want close to this smart little guy, especially in The Promised Neverland vol 12! I thought how the monsters dealt with Phil and the other young kids was smart. It will be harder to realize Emma's dream now. Rossi plays a big part in the kids surviving this setback at the redoubt and I loved that a "smaller" character got to take the limelight. He about runs his heart out and yet no different than Emma or Ray steps into the gap...The VisualsIn The Promised Neverland vol 12 we get to see a little bit of the monster world. And WOW! I loved the temple and Cuvitidala. The plan that the kids come up with in order to find what they need is outstanding!! You will be shocked and pleased and Posuka Demizu really needs an award at how nuanced the drawings of this part were done. There were clues while it was also believable what they got away with. And with a line drawing that is simply stunning! The art continues to give the best support to this sumptuous story.The Promised Neverland vol 12 expands on the mystery of the seven walls... and Emma gets to meet a dragon?! You won't want to miss the shocking events that hit the kids at their redoubt... and which the adults are essential to realizing Emma's dream!!⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Authenticity⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Tension⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Plot⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ ArtThis is a multi-volume series and there may be references to the plot of those volumes... SO READ WITH CARE! Here is my review of 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 | 11 | 12 |______________________Please like this review if you enjoyed it! *bow* *bow* It helps me out a ton!!

    I feel like the pacing for this current arc was a little odd, kind of fast for my liking compared to Grace Field Escape and Goldy Pond. I wish the author spent more time world-building and showing us Emma and the kids journey to Culvitidala. I dont mean a bunch of panels of the kids just killing wild demons in a forest but I wouldve like to see more exploration of the demon world. The scenes of the market place and temple were really beautiful.

I hope Shirai isn’t facing pressure from editors to ramp up the action in this arc because we’ve seen how Shōnen series can get ruined because of this. In chapter 100, (view spoiler)[ I’m glad we got an update of what happened after the fire at Grace Field House. My heart breaks for Phil. The guilt, loneliness and fear he carries is too much of a burden for a 4-year old. I think the new mom requested Andrew to come by. I’m really curious about what Phil told Andrew when he came to visit at his new home. (hide spoiler)]The last few chapters made up the rest of the volume for me. There are major death flags for two particular characters :(

    Well it seems that the "easy" times are over for the kids. Given all they been through with these monsters--the antagonists that actually do real damage is especially tragic. At the same time we are seeing preparations for what looks like the final third of this story. Though this is technically a "transition" volume, there is enough consequential events here to affect the rest of the story going forward and we still have another volume until the final operation really kicks-off.

    I love this series but the pacing was very odd in this volume. The first few chapters were very confusing with timejumps that didnt make sense. I feel like Im missing some important information about how they got to where they are now, and what theyve been doing all of this time. One of the rare instances where I wouldve wanted a bit of filler, or an extra few chapters. And how did the demons not at the very least smell them as they were walking around, masks or not?

Why wouldn’t they just do that all the time? I’m also a bit nervous, after the greatness of the grace field arc and godly pond arcs, to see where they’re going to take things. I’d like to see some more Norman soon.

    Honestly, say what you will, but YakuNeba continues to wow me, especially as we dive deeper into the world and build towards this arc's distant climax. It's going to be a long wait until January since I'm reading the series by the volume instead of on Viz's Shonen Jump App, but this series is well worth the wait.

I for one am super worried about what happened with Phil. I wish I didn’t have to wait for more volumes! Ugh! Summary:(view spoiler)[ Chapter 98: Starting Sound – The chapter starts with a scene involving the Peter Ratri, the brother of the human family that made the deal with the demons and upholds it. He has rooted out members of his family who he believes are traitors and has them executed. Meanwhile, a man states that he has found the hideout of the escaped children. We go back in time a bit to see the everyday life of the children who live in the safehouse shelter; they are keeping someone in the secret room to stay beside the phone, where they await the call from someone who can help. It’s been seven days since they attempted to use the phone to contact supporters. But it’s been 15 years since Minerva’s recording was made, so they can’t even be sure someone will get their signal. They do get a message in morse code that says they can’t meet with them now but to wait to hear back; they tell the kids not to move. We then go back forward in time to the man sent by Peter, Andrew, who has just arrived at the shelter with a group of armed men. He receives the order to slaughter all the children. Chapter 99: Cuvitidala – The leaders of the children discuss the supporters and go over the knowledge they have collected so far. The children have been working on deciphering ancient books from the library of the shelter. One of the phrases they interpret is about a “dragon of Cuvitidala,” which they believe is a location. Emma, Ray, Don, and Gilda (and Zack and Violet from the Goldy Pond group, since one is a medic and the other can see well in the dark) form a small group to set out to find this location. Chapter 100: Arrival – The chapter starts with a scene following Phil, the oldest of the young children left behind on the farm. Mom has been moved from the shelter and a new one has replaced her. Phil has an understanding of the situation and tries to be strong for the other children, who do not know. Phil has to watch children be sent off and pretend he doesn’t know what is happening, but he is a small child and gets emotional. He tries to pretend he is alright, but the Mom seems to suspect. Suddenly, a man named Andrew (yup, same guy) arrives, with questions for Phil. The expedition group fights through mindless demons and arrives at the location they believe to be Cuvitidala.Chapter 101: Come – The group investigates Cuvitidala. Emma finds an engraving of an eye on one of the mysterious stones standing around and has a vision. She sees a great dragon, a demon ritual, and speaks with what appears to be a demon child. The child tells her she needs to “come properly. Next time, from the entrance.” She tells the group about the vision. She also has a pendant shaped like an eye that she got from Mujika and Sonju, the demons who helped them back when they first traveled through the forest after escaping the farm. She saw a temple in her vision, so the group decides they need to head back to the shelter to investigate where the temple is. Her goal is to meet with the demon child being, who is supposedly the one who came up with the original “promise,” so she can make a new promise that doesn’t involve farming children as demon food. Chapter 102: Found It & Chapter 103: One More Move – In a demon marketplace, demons gossip about bandits who have attacked a mass production farm to steal children. By this point, it has been a year since the Goldy Pond incident. The children have been living in the shelter and every so often Emma’s group goes out on expeditions to find the temple. In the marketplace, Emma’s group passes through disguised as demons. In this town they find the correct temple and once confirmed, they head back to the shelter to regroup. As they are discussing their next move back at the shelter, they are attacked. Chapter 104: Abandon -- The children all hide in the armory room as Andrew’s group searches the shelter. They start to travel through a secret escape tunnel leading out; they have to abandon their shelter. Lucas and another child are hiding in the secret room, meanwhile. Lucas attacks a guard just outside who is using the cameras, which will give away the children when they emerge from the tunnels. He takes out the guard and discovers Andrew knows about the secret exits; he sends the small child to warn the rest of them. Chapter 105: Illusion – The children reach the secret exit, but as two unnamed children go up to open the door they are shot and killed. Andrew tells them they have all the exits secured and they are there to kill them all. Emma tries to talk with Andrew, telling him she is trying to make a new promise, but Andrew says that just means they need to kill the children even more. The children retreat behind a blast door as gas bombs are thrown their way. Chapter 106: The Way Out – The child Lucas sent, Rossi, finally catches up with the group. He tells them Lucas will break all the camera monitors. The children strategize about which hallway to travel and exit to use. They head for an exit while Lucas begins to attack more of the soldiers. They all regroup outside the shelter; Lucas and Yugo decide to stay behind while the rest of the children escape, so that they can take out as many of the soldiers as possible. They don’t want the kids to have to kill other humans. They tell Emma they will catch up soon, but they don’t seem to believe they will survive the skirmish. (hide spoiler)]

But the creators do a good job presenting events such that the pacing doesnt get bogged down. Then its back to action and thrills when the Ratri Clan invades the shelter!The ReviewThe Goldy Pond arc went out with a literal bang, with bullets flying and the whole place blowing up. Now that the kids plus two adults are safely at the B06-32 In SummaryFans of the clue-tracking aspect of this series will enjoy the kids’ search for the Seven Walls. It’s a long investigation–over a year and a half! But the creators do a good job presenting events such that the pacing doesn’t get bogged down. Then it’s back to action and thrills when the Ratri Clan invades the shelter!The ReviewThe Goldy Pond arc went out with a literal bang, with bullets flying and the whole place blowing up. Now that the kids plus two adults are safely at the B06-32 shelter, the gears switch away from action to sleuthing and intrigue.The mystery is twofold. First is the situation between the Minerva group and the Ratri Clan members that shut them down. The kids have extremely limited access to information on the human world, so they’re stuck making conjectures on what the actual situation is. Thing is, the Ratri Clan is also conjecturing about the escapees and their whereabouts. The creators do an excellent job keeping readers on the edge of their seats as Peter Ratri and his terrifying minion Andrew strive to sniff them out.The second mystery is the Seven Walls, which they must locate if they want to attempt a new promise regarding the humans in the demon world. This starts off a lot like the trail of clues at Grace Field House, but then it takes a great leap in scope. The search involves distances that require months to cover. What this does is force a rapid progression of time; the events of Volume 12 span over a year and a half. As a result, the kids are pushed right up against their deadline to return for Phil and the remaining Grace Field kids by the end of the volume.Another leap is that the Seven Walls investigation takes on a mystical aspect. Whereas before they obtained clues from those they encountered or gleaned them from books and objects, this time Emma gets overtaken by a vision. I wasn’t expecting the series to take a turn for the supernatural. Then again, elevators supposedly connect human and demon worlds, so why not?After several chapters of furtive investigations, things get charged up again when Peter Ratri’s thugs invade the B06-32 shelter! It’s a compressed, more intense version of the battle at Goldy Pond. Once more, the kids get pushed to the brink, except this time their pursuers are other humans.Extras include side scenes and the creators’ notes.For more manga and book reviews, drop by my blog Keeping It In Canon!

    Reviewing volumes 10-12The "Goldy Pond" arc had me a little down on this series for a while (and unfortunately I suspect it will make up the bulk of the next season of the anime) - not because it's bad but because of the shift in tone.

The first arc of this book was a tense thriller centered on the characters escaping from their prison on the human farm. The second arc, while beginning to reveal important parts of the history of their world, also eventually fell into the "weaker heroes have to come up with clever way to defeat stronger enemies" plot that is the bread and butter of shounen manga. It wasn't done poorly, but it was much more generic than the previous material had been.The end of volume 11 and into volume 12, fortunately, sees the start of a new arc that is centered more on the uncovering of mysteries, gives us some insight into "demon" society, and pits us against a new villain for the children - fellow humans, who are willing to sacrifice them to keep the peace. The brief section that revealed what is happening to Phil and the other children back at the farm also raised the stakes for this series, especially with the clock ticking on their two-year commitment to rescuing the freeing the rest of the children. I guess it's actually season 3 of the anime that I'm going to wind up looking forward to...

Them crying of joy... I screamed. I want more of them and I’m getting it, a girl is happy. That chapter of Phil just waiting for Emma and the others. Please reunite this baby with his family, asap. Also his scores are going up... we know what that means. Phil reveals that the kids were all split up into the four different houses. Mama is nowhere to be seen. Phil has new family, a new Mama. And he has to watch kids go knowing their fates, just like Ray did for all those years. It was heartbreaking. He has to keep this facade and act like things are fine. Poor Phil is so alone, but he has to plan ahead. If Emma never returns, he’ll have to scheme himself a way to get the kids out. This guy, Andrew, who we saw earlier really just walked up to Phil and said he wants to... talk. Listen bitch, if you touch my son- I will personally choke-slam you into the floor. Emma is a straight up badass, we been knew, but she killing these demons like a walk in the park. Emma has these “visions of the past” she talks to the dragon rumored to be in Khavitidala. What’s up with that time skip??? It really fast forwarded to 1 year and 8 months since the kids escaped Grace Field. We have two months left. Guys. Two months... The kids kept doing research and they’re exploring the east and western sides. Emma and the others successfully found the Temple and The Golden Water. Their excitement was so pure and I love my kids. But they figured it out, they found the place Emma had seen in her visions and a way to get in. Things are looking up considering they have two months to get the rest of the kids and yeet the hell out of there...Or so we thought, because Andrew... he had the audacity to show up AND ambush their escape route? He has some nerve. This guy really out here sniping- HE SNIPPED CRISTY- I’m- I love Yuugo and Lucas working together, not letting the kids take the burden of killing other humans. I want to see them live. Please. It’d be much appreciated, thank you. While I felt the time skip was very sudden, I was legitimately taken aback. But I was a little emo because I could see the little details showing Emma and Ray and the others were one year older. Don’s hair is messier, and Gilda looks more serious with her hair half-up half down, Ray’s hair (let’s be honest he rocks that emo look) and Emma’s hair is also longer (I think) which- ugh. Will we see a slightly older Norman? If so, I’m ready to cry. This volume had some downs and some ups, but I’m still hella engaged to this story.

    I am so happy that I continued with this series because this book was really really great. I was completely interested in what was going on and there were several clues that were dropped that kept me riveted. It ended on a cliffhanger and I need to know what is going to happen next. Sadly, this is the last book my library currently has so I am going to be waiting impatiently until more arrive.

    Though not the strongest in the series, this one is clearly queuing up a lot of things to come. It seems like they're getting ready to amp up the stakes again, and after the bold choice to accelerate the timeline, I'm curious to see how things will shake out. Also curious to know how long the series will actually be after some of these developments. We'll see!

    I thought this volume started strong and ended even stronger, but in the middle, I got a little confused when the narrative started jumping around in time. The story skipped ahead nearly two years overall, and while it jumped ahead bit by bit, there were also flashback scenes interspersed, and I found it a little hard to follow at times and not as compelling. The end was very exciting though, but that last line of dialogue makes me nervous 😬

    This volume was absolutely amazing. I was on the edge of my seat all the time! There was no way I could put it down 'cause every time I told myself this would be the last chapter something exciting would happen that would not only add to the suspense but also compel me to keep on reading! It was a fun exciting read and so far the best volume I've read in this series.
