A dark tale with moments of lightheartedness in between. This story of orphans trapped in an orphanage with sinister designs is something to look forward to.
It's not often that you get anime with such a visually striking style as The Promised Neverland. The primary season for the anime was released in January 2019, and continued until March 2019, based on a manga of the same name. Animated by CloverWorks (Darling in the FranXX, Persona 5), the style is unique and draws you in, while the story keeps you begging for more. While no official announcements had followed the end of anime in March 2019, all of its fans were sure it was going to return, and the decision was just a matter of course. The manga itself was very popular, and the anime has bolstered its popularity in both Japanese and American audiences. As the manga comes to an end, though, anime watches are clamoring to see what the second season of the anime has in store for them.
The Grace Field House orphanage plays host to several gifted kids, including Ray, Emma, and Norman, the brightest of the bunch. This tale isn't a story of orphan abuse however - the kids are treated well, and they are given enough to eat and go to school, just like regular kids. This story isn't Matilda, after all. However, you quickly realize that there's something "wrong" with this place, and everything at Grace Field House is not quite as straightforward as it first seemed. One of their members, Connie, is adopted but leaves her stuffed rabbit behind. In a show of generosity and cunning, Norman and Emma sneak out of the orphanage to return the rabbit to Connie, breaking one of the vital rules of the orphanage - never stray too far from the grounds. It's by breaking this rule that the secret that surrounds the orphanage starts to unravel.
Little by little, Emma, Norman, and Ray try to plot their way out of the sinister orphanage and keep one step ahead of "Mama Isabel." Each episode leaves you on the edge of your seat as you wonder how the kids are going to fulfill their goals. You consider if there's anything they can do to save themselves in the long run, and what each action they take may lead to. The twists and turns contained with the first season are what makes you wonder, as the end of the twelfth episode wraps up if the second season can match anything that the first has served up.
There's a bit of hesitation on behalf of fans of season 1 of The Promised Neverland, especially since director Mamoru Kanbe ('Elfen Lied,' 'Baccano') has noted the second season will change things up drastically. At the end of the first season, we see a daring escape, alongside hastily made promises, and we're left wondering if the character that got away will risk coming back to keep their promise. The first season was heavily centered on the escape of those main characters, but the second season will have us follow another strand of the story. Fans of season one will be wondering what's behind the closed walls of the orphanage? Then there are mysteries regarding the demons, who they are, what they want, and where they come from. There are just so many questions that we need answers for that this second season just can't drop fast enough!
The studio has announced that fans can look forward to the second season to drop in October 2020. That's quite a way away, but luckily, we have both the first season to rewatch and the manga to read until it comes out.Disclaimer : The views expressed in this article belong to the writer and are not necessarily shared by trinikid.com
