I think The Promised Neverland (Yakusoku no Neverland) is one of the most awaited anime of this season, considering that the manga is a HUGE success. Today it finally premiered and I went in blind, without having read the manga or even reviews about it.

What I can say is that the anime ROCKS and I will definitely be watching it. I watched the first episode with my wife and I don’t know if it fits her tastes, but for me, it is a must watch as I’m hooked up already.

Unfortunately it is a bit hard to talk about it without spoiling anything, but what I can say is: it’s a horror-suspense-drama kinda anime.

The art style fits the mood and the story, and the OST really adds up to it. I think the three friends (the three main characters?) are cool, and everyone will have fun cheering for them along their journey.

Status: Watching it – Priority

Trailer and Synopsis

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. (AniList)
