Do you love the thrilling world of The Promised Neverland? The psychological-horror series is this season’s biggest anime and has fans on edge every single week.
While not exact copies, these series have similar themes and premises that are bound to entertain The Promised Neverland fans.
1. Made in Abyss
Do you love seeing orphans suffering in a cruel world? Both series follow a group of children attempting to survive while being used by adults, but Made in Abyss focuses more on Riko’s personal journey. Still, fans of The Promised Neverland‘s atmosphere or mature storylines will love Made in Abyss.
2. Seraph of the End
Seraph of the End shares a similar premise to The Promised Neverland, but with the action cranked to 11. Children are raised as livestock for flesh-eating monsters and the youth will rebel against the system. However, don’t expect to be scared by Seraph of the End and embrace the stellar action scenes.
3. From the New World
Love mind games, world-building, and naivety being burned to the ground? From the New World moves at a slower pace, but the cast and the psychological plot will pull in most fans of The Promised Neverland.
4. Puella Magi Madoka Magica
Being magical girls isn’t all fun and games. Sometimes, you have to do really messed up stuff after putting on a frilly dress. Puella Magi Madoka Magica features more action as the cast fights to survive in a cruel world as they attempt to out-maneuver their enemy.
5. Mujin Wakusei Survive
There’s more than meet’s the eye in this forgotten series. Mujin Wakusei Survive follows a group of kids who are accidentally sent to an uninhabited planet — or are they? Like in The Promised Neverland, the cast must uncover the truth of their situation while surviving against the elements. However, with 52 episodes, Mujin Wakusei Survive is allowed to take its time dolling out the twists.
Both series share so many similarities that it’s scary. Godspeed takes place after a war between demons and angels. To protect humanity, the angels build a city so that children can live under heavenly guidance. After their 14th birthday, the children are sent to paradise — and we’re calling fraud here. Godspeed is only 10 chapters, so you can make a quick comparison yourself.
