Fans have been buzzing with excitement since The Promised Neverland‘s anime adaptation has been announced, but no one is more excited than the creators. Author Kaiu Shirai and artist Posuka Demizu shared their thoughts about the upcoming adaptation.
“TV anime adaptation! Thank you! I read the script up the third episode, and while the story is the same as the manga, it shows it differently. With the original and the anime, you get twice the enjoyment. For me personally, there is a scene in the 2nd episode that I’m really looking forward to. I hope we can all enjoy it together!
“I’ve stepped into an amazing world!! Thanks for your support!“
Shueisha officially announced that The Promised Neverland is getting an anime on Sunday. Production details are slim, but it will air on Fuji TV’s prestigious Noitamina block this January.
The Promised Neverland follows orphans Emma, Norman, and Ray. They live at the Grace Field House with other foster siblings and are allowed to do pretty much anything. However, they are forbidden to leave the compound or go to the gate. The children think nothing of this simple rule until they discover the fate of one of their recently adopted sibling.
Kaiu Shirai and Posuka Demizu’s series is a massive hit with readers – having over 4.2 million copies in print since launching in August 2016.
