The Promised Neverland (Yakusoku no Neverland) is now one of Shonen Jump’s most popular series and its anime debut made it even more popular. If you are here then you are probably waiting for the next season just like all of us before we get into the details of The Promised Neverland season 2, let’s recall how the first season started and what made us got into this incredible anime.
The Promised Neverland Plot:
The anime starts with cute little children playing around in an orphanage, leading happy lives together with Isabella whom they call ‘Mama’. They are required to takes tests daily but other than that they are free to do whatever they want as long as they follow one rule and that is to not venture too far into the forest (there was a limit to how far they can go).
All of the children live together as a big happy family. Every few months one of them is adopted by a foster family and nobody ever hears from them again, the children presume that it may be because they are just having so much fun that they forgot all about them…
In the first episode, one of the children named Conny is about to leave to live with a foster family. After the farewell, when she leaves. The main character Emma who is one of the three eldest siblings realizes that Conny forgot her stuffed bunny which she always used to keep by her side.
She and Norman (Also one of the three eldest siblings) make a dash toward the gates they figured she wouldn’t have left yet.
To get to her they have to go through a gate which they aren’t supposed to enter no matter what. They do it thinking they would both apologize later, and what they saw next was nothing short of a nightmare, they found out that everything they thought they knew was a big lie!
What happened next got us hooked on the anime.
Season 1 was perfect but it ended and it ended at a cliffhanger, leaving all of our fans hungry for more.
