This year's 26th issue of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine revealed on Monday that Kaiu Shirai and Posuka Demizu's The Promised Neverland (Yakusoku no Neverland) manga will receive a television anime adaptation.
The previous issue of Weekly Shonen Jump hinted at an important announcement for the manga last week.
Viz Media is serializing the manga in its digital English edition of Shonen Jump, and is also publishing the volumes in print. The company shipped the third volume on April 3. Viz Media describes the story:
The children of the Grace Field House orphanage have their happy lives upended when they find out they're being raised to be fed to demons. Can they escape their fate before it's too late?
Shirai and Demizu launched the manga in Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine in August 2016, and Shueisha shipped the manga's eighth compiled volume on April 4. The manga has 4.2 million copies in print in Japan.
The manga won the Best Shōnen Manga award at the 63rd Shogakukan Manga Awards in January, was nominated for the 11th Manga Taisho awards in January, and was nominated for the 22nd Annual Tezuka Osamu Cultural Prize in February. The series also topped the 2018 edition of Takarajimasha's Kono Manga ga Sugoi! (This Manga Is Amazing!) guidebook's list of manga for male readers in December.
The manga's supervising editor previously stated in February that the manga had reached its "turnaround point."
The official Facebook page for Adult Swim's Toonami block announced on Thursday that the block will premiere The Promised Neverland anime on April 13.
The block will also run two episodes of Sword Art Online: Alicization on April 6 from 12:30 a.m. to 1:30 a.m.
The The Promised Neverland anime premiered on January 10, and ended this Friday in Japan. Aniplex of America streamed the anime on Crunchyroll, Hulu, Funimation, and HIDIVE as it aired in Japan. The anime will have a second season in 2020.
Mamoru Kanbe (Elfen Lied, The Perfect Insider) directed the anime at A-1 Pictures' CloverWorks studio (PERSONA 5 the Animation). Toshiya Ono (Gatchaman Crowds, The Perfect Insider) handled the series composition, Kazuaki Shimada (Mahou Shoujo Nante Mouiidesukara.) designed the characters for animation, and Takahiro Obata composed the music.
Shirai and Demizu launched The Promised Neverland manga in Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine in August 2016. Viz Media publishes the original manga in North America digitally and in print.
It's coming to Toonami and i'll most likely watch it again. The first season wraps tonight/tomorrow with the 12th episode and I highly recommend it for those who want to watch it. It is suspense done right
