>finish reading the newest chapter

>it ends with Emma falling asleep and waking up to this

I can officially say that I have no idea what's going on in this manga anymore.


I haven't been super excited about where the manga was going since they left the plantation, but this intrigues me. There's a lot of directions the story can go from here.

>That curve ball

What the HELL? How can this manga keep pulling this shit so effectively?! We should be used to thing sort of thing by now, but we're somehow NOT!

Also, considering Mister's name was deliberately scratched out of the flashback (as if bleeped), I'm going to start calling him Kiddo. You can't stop me. It was pretty adorable how Emma was even starting to mother him, but, well... that obviously got a little sidetracked. Who the fuck knows what is going to happen now.


Emma got poached is my call.


That town is way too fairytale looking. Some bad shit is gonna be going down here.


New chapter is up!

Goldy Pound is a poaching free-range area



It's a dream. She's in nightmareland having her vital energies sucked in reality.

This trope has been overused to death.

What i don't get is why Minerva would send them to Goldy Pond.


So we went from a prison escape to the most dangerous game.

this fucking manga, man



Latest chapter has Emma posit that he must have left something there. Of course, who knows what it is.

Then again, the fact that there are kids there who have been taken from the farms raises the extremely remote possibility that Norman is still alive. After all, we never saw his dead body...



Should I force myself to read this? After the first chapter ended it turned into some of the most awful, boring shit I have ever read, but if it gets any better I'll try.



This shit is the most plot-twist-dense thrill ride that I've ever read. Keep going. Once you get to the wack-ass mindgames in a death orphanage, you'll know whether you like it or not.

Keep going. The initial surprise of the dead kid isn't really all that engaging compared to the rest of the shit that starts happening. You didn't even get to meet Sister Giganigga, after all.

Post rare Krones, to remember the good ol' days







Norman is still alive in the village!

But Emma shows up ten seconds too late to save him from being brutally eviscerated, and tearfully has to say goodbye to him a second time. Then, suddenly, just before dying, Norman asks her "Do I know you?", revealing that it's actually just a clone, so Norman is still alive! ...in some other village.


I'll be fucking surprised if Norman isn't alive. Off screen insinuation of death is always a fucking setup that a character is still alive.



five arcs later



If Norman doesn't show up here, he's gonna be a villain. There's no way in hell he isn't alive, but said living has to be a result of literally dealing with the devil.





I'm following the rule of, "No body, no death." Until there's 100% confirmation that he's dead and gone, then the hope of Norman lives on.

This is getting really exciting, they actually introduced a named villain and I don't feel like it detracts from what the series has done so far at all, I love it.

I have to say these demons have some really awesome designs.




I don't think this secret safari park was there when Minerva hid whatever he wanted the kids to find. The demons just so happened to build their hunting ground right on top of the place Minerva had hidden his surprise.

What I'm really wondering about is who wrote "check your pen" on Emma's hand? The poachers, to troll her?


Something's up with Norman, he looked genuinely surprised before he "died", like more so than he would have been if demons had just showed up to kill him. It makes me think that he, Emma and Ray are needed alive for whatever ritual Unpronounceable wants to use them for.



>he looked genuinely surprised before he "died"

I noticed this, too.




It wasn't exactly subtle. Anyone who thinks Norman died there to become food has to be really naive. It's not like they were trying to hide this information either, quite the opposite, they showed Norman's face like that to keep people guessing what really happened there. It's not impossible that he really died there, but it's not the most likely outcome.


File: d27e69f5580be4e⋯.png (34.45 KB, 289x165, 289:165, yes.png)


>mfw I think he really done croaked he did


So now Emma has inherited an entirely new group of kids to save (~50). Fucking Hell,even the number she had before was unwieldy, and then there's all of the little kids that were left back at the orphanage, and at this rate she'll probably want to save all the kids at the OTHER ones at Grace Field...

Ray is gonna flip his shit when Emma shows back up at the underground hideout with a goddamn battalion of new mouths to feed.



Emma's army will get stronger and stronger. No wonder they showed off the armoury, those kids are gonna get geared up. Though, I do hope Emma takes a loss soon, can't have her winning non-stop.


Im guessing the plot twist is that the main man is actually a demon trying to fuck with everyone else.




I think kids are going to have to start dying off soon. This series opened with one edgy death of a little girl and then did a 180 and hasn't revisited that yet, but hopefully the author's just lulled us into a false sense of security, and those ~50 kids mostly end up dead. Which would solve both the problem of too many kids as well as breaking Emma's winning streak. The family of kids Emma and the rest escaped with might have plot armor but hopefully the rest of these kids do not. Alternatively Emma might just escape from Goldy Pond with Ray and the adult dude, leaving most of the other kids behind.




What winning streak? She managed to escape the farm, reach the shelter, and convince the big guy to take them to Goldy Pond, but for all she knows Norman is fucking dead and she has no reason to believe otherwise, and she even had to make a compromise for her escape plan to work (leave some kids behind). Isabella broke her leg too while in the farm and that's not exactly a very positive thing either.

Emma and Ray do manage to get things done but it's never smooth. I do hope The Most Dangerous Game fucks with her a little. If she manages to save every kid it's going to be pretty lame. And the worst part is, I could see her doing it. Cooking up some plan to hit every demon in the eye to get rid of all of them.



The one aristocratic demon is a great opportunity to introduce a character that is just plain smarter than Emma. Someone that sees through all her traps, all her plans, all her machinations, and unlike Kiddo, is "evil" enough to not be affected by her personality. She could end up completely defeated because he's better than her in every single way, and he won't even bother killing her at that point because he only gains satisfaction from the contest, not the result.

As an aside, Mama Izabella looks like she'd be a great lay with how fit she is. I've never seen word of any doujins featuring her though.

Kill them Emma. Kill them all.


So the Most Dangerous Game demon's name is "Lewis". That's most definitely NOT a demon name, from what we've seen before. That's a human name.

Curious. Very curious...

Humans are the real monsters




>Norman has become demonified



Now that would be an interesting twist. However, because nothing predicted ever happens, it won't happen.


How many months before we find out why adults are always surprised that the kids call demons demons?

"John we are the demons" seems like an idiotic subtext to all these exchanges. I know it's probably not that but it's getting annoying that this secret is still dangling and now we've reset into another plantation escape arc.

Well Emma finally did it, she failed to save some lives. And those lives got devoured by demons at one of their fancy upscale parties. Good to see the steaks have been raised, we get to wonder which of Emma's new friends will be next to meat his demise. This establishes these demons, and especially Lewis as credible threats. I assume Emma is going to train the kids and try to turn them into hunters, which hopefully won't so as smoothly as she thinks it will. Then Ray and what's his name eventually show up to aid them, saving the day. But hopefully Lewis doesn't get killed yet, he's a pretty cool antagonist to have around.



>That image

>Steaks have been raised



Goddamn, everyone knows that the meat of stressed animals tastes like fucking garbage. That's why you always kill livestock as quickly as possible. The demons are doing it wrong.



Maybe the taste of stressed children is really appealing to demons.



Maybe the demons are chinese?

New chapter is out, by the way.


File: bdbca70c3ff5354⋯.png (317.63 KB, 889x1300, 889:1300, we tried so hard.png)

>we tried every possible way to kill them but we didn't know that their EYES WERE THEIR WEAK POINT



It's not just any eye, only one specific eye has any weak point at all, and it doesn't have a single distinct feature on the surface that would let you deduce the fact.

Good fucking luck figuring this out in the middle of a fight with a rapidly moving nigger hunting your shit while you barely understand what is even happening



True, they are in a of running away most of the times, especially for the new children. But for those who survived for months and years, they should have figured something out or made an elaborate plan to kill at least one monster. Especially their leader who's been 13 years alive since the escape now.



It's honestly not that obvious or easy. The demons are fast, strong and keep their weak spots covered, but they also wear clothes so they wouldn't have any way of knowing the reason they're covering their eyes is because that's their weak point. They probably think it's just how they dress, standard demon fashion.

Plus even if throughout the years they got lucky and hit a demon in the eye, what are the chances of even noticing the demon died because he got shot in the eye? But they're going to gain that information now and that's going to increase their fighting chances by a lot.


File: c21c017b392291d⋯.png (193.79 KB, 845x309, 845:309, Bro.png)


They aren't superhuman geniuses like Ray and Emma are. They're merely high-quality humans. Considering Lewis and Friends ate the "meat" of the last kids who were killed, and not their brains, it means the ones coming from Grand Valley are not specifically raised for their brains as the ones from Grace Field are. Even among them, Ray and Emma are once- (well, thrice)-in-a-generation standouts.

Anyway, it seems we now know the reason why Kiddo conspired to send Emma to Goldy Pond in the first place. It was because one of his buddies is stuck there, and he didn't have a way to rescue the guy on his own (as only kids get "poached"). Presumably, he and Ray will secure the way back for when Emma gets everyone out of there.

Or people will die and she'll BSOD for a while again. This tends to happen to her unless/until someone snaps her out of it. Thus far, it's the only real negative trait she has: she's a sore fucking loser.



I think Shelter Dude only brought them to Goldy Pond because he knew they'd likely get captured and killed.

The worst part is while this manga is an imaginative metaphor of our world, it's no more accurate than the biblical interpretation, or any other interpretation.

That part terrifies me the most, the unknown of our universe.

All we have is the wisdom manifest as a consequence of reality carrying out it's way... nothing more for the whole shebang.

But that helpful demon is a qt.


Two parts I liked this chapter: Page 12 with Lucas pissed off and saying he'll destroy the park and talking about him training kids to do it, and the last panel, as always. Close to every chapter in this has a good last panel.


I'm getting really curious why they keep censoring Kiddo's name like this. What's the payoff? What could his name possibly be that justifies all this secrecy and build-up?? He's not fucking Minerva; we know that already.

Oh, goody, we get to see Minerva's secret behind the door that won't budge unless you have a key! I bet it'll be something completely worthless.

That struck me too, aw yeah shit's about to go down, Poachers and a bunch of humans about to get wrecked.



This, it probably adds flavor or something. Plus, we know Lewis is involved with one of the farms so he probably gets enough of the standard premium stuff as things stand.

>Greet Isabella

>"We're sorry we ran away, mama. Here's 40 new kids we picked up, to make up for it!"



They showed Grace Field in the color pages before the chapter and it looks like Isabella is out of the picture.

Also it just hit me, aren't the elevator and the weird water around it basically magical? Were there other instances of things that looked like magic before?



The plant life and fauna have all been pretty wacky, but outright magic, no not until now it appears.



The water was something unexplained, sure, but the elevator could be just an elevator. Maybe the human world is underground; and even if the elevator is a teleporter, it's more sci-fi than magic.

So I guess William Minerva probably aten't ded yet.

What makes you believe that?



Not much point in having the people sent to eliminate him state they haven't found his body unless it is a red herring.



As far as I understood, Minerva being stabbed in the back was quite some time ago.



15 years, new chapter has timestamps.

Flashback where they talk of Minerva's supposed death is in September 2031.

Current date is given as January 2046, fifteen years after the betrayal.

You're right, I might just be retarded and blind. Only noticed the second time stamp and thought nothing of it.


The number Adam repeats is Norman's.



He kinda looks like him, too.



I didn't notice the first timestamp either, I went back to look for it when I realized the things they were showing looked recent.

And again, another fucking cliffhanger ending. Every fucking chapter. The writer has some talent, ending so many chapters like this.



couldn't be norman, unless they removed the number tattoo from his neck. More likely, I'd wager that Norman helped him or something, but Adam didn't get his name




Maybe its some sort of steroid pumped norman clone?


File: f4baad1a14d28f7⋯.jpg (79.83 KB, 600x348, 50:29, Picard-YES.jpg)

NORMAN'S BACK!! He's still alive! The twists keep coming and they don't stop coming.


Looks like that's about the size of it. Maybe the Ratri's are trying to make a stable breeding line of mindless clone humans that nonetheless have very tasty brains, so as to eliminate the need for orphanages. If so, it would kinda throw a wrench into all that if Norman were to, I dunno, run away or something?


Damn great update, our boy Norman is alive and kicking.

If it wasn't for the fact that ratri et al is evil I would think they were trying to make humans who can fight demons. I think they are trying to make mutant humans who are more fun to eat/hunt for special occasions.



>norman being alive


Nigger, if fucking ANYBODY thought Norman was dead after the way he exited from the story they should go get themselves sterilized. I don't think a single character that has had significant character development has been killed in this story. The girl from the beginning doesn't count because at that point we didn't give a fuck about anyone, the kids Emma tried to save in Goldy Pond don't count because they existed solely to die to raise tension, and Kiddo's friends don't count.

I like Promised Neverland a lot and I'm looking forward to seeing where the story goes but I'm expecting all punches to be pulled until the end.

>if fucking ANYBODY thought Norman was dead after the way he exited from the story they should go get themselves sterilized.

Hard to disagree with you there. Looking at the pages of him leaving I don't think they were even trying to hide it, it was never really a question of if he was alive or not, but why they let him live, and what happened is more or less what I expected. The interesting part is how they're still keeping him in the dark about demons though.

Also, we're back to being a jailbreak manga, and I'm fucking okay with that. I like everything in promised neverland so far but the planning and execution of the Grace Field house were my favorite part.



>Thinking anything is predictable in a manga like this

>Saying that only the characters who aren't important enough can die, as if there's really a difference

>Being this much of a fucking asshole elitist nigger faggot

For the record, I didn't think he was dead, either. But Minerva is dead, Krone is dead, and Isabella might be dead. You can't sit there and tell me you saw those coming.



Not him but:

>Minerva is dead

Not wholly unexpected, to be honest, especially when they got to the bunker and saw the condition it was in. The last thing I was expecting was for Minerva to be an alive adult human man. I thought it could be a front for some sort of resistance, maybe a trick by the demons, maybe a name used by multiple people, maybe hints being dropped by Isabella... him being dead after being betrayed was completely inside my expectations. And I'm not saying this is a bad thing by any means. The manga got me thinking of all possible angles things could go and delivered a realistic and interesting scenario. Being right about what you think is going to happen in a series this unpredictable is fun, it's as fun as being surprised by something completely unexpected.

>Krone is dead

That one was a surprise, but not because she died, but because of when she died. She was a character type you'd expect to die but not that soon. High point in the series for me.

>and Isabella might be dead

We expected the kids to escape eventually, and she'd obviously be punished for it. At some point I was honestly expecting Emma or Ray to kill her though.

Anon, this series is unpredictable but not illogical, and you can infer a lot of things from clues.


File: 76b555a5b530564⋯.png (287.76 KB, 881x1300, 881:1300, ClipboardImage.png)


When I saw the bunker all fucked up I expected Minerva to be dead, but after we saw Minerva's recording?

I'll believe a death if I see it in frame. Minerva left that message in 2031, and it's only been 14 years since then where the current story is taking place. Shirai has made a huge point to twist expectations constantly so it wouldn't surprise me if the CALL chapter isn't just setting up expectations that Minerva ended up getting killed by his clan where as in reality he escaped. I mean come on, look at pic related.

As for Krone, I didn't start reading until after that point in the manga and I had spoilers. I don't really have a prediction on Isabella.

I'm an asshole cynical nigger faggot.



>As for Krone, I didn't start reading until after that point in the manga

Did you get attracted to the series by all the Krone memes were were posting?



Krone was the siren song of this series. Lulling in numerous anons unbeknownst to their own actions.


I hope the humans opt for an eradication of at least the man-eating demons.


There are way too many flags that Minerva is still alive. Dude keeps dropping hints on where to go next, and I fully expect an update by either his allies or another message once the gang gets to the next clue.



>Dude keeps dropping hints on where to go next

It's better if he's dead because of this. The fact that he can micromanage the protagonists to this extreme level, all planned out IN ADVANCE makes him more of a badass than he ever could be if made alive.

I wouldn't put it past this manga to have a clone of him show up later or something, though.



Needs to be carefully balanced. Him being a genius and leaving a breadcrumb trail is nice.. but him being a Death Note style ALL ACCORDING TO KEIKAKU Godlike strategist who can set elaborate schemes in motion decades after his death and have them still work out would really cheapen things.


Did jaimini purge all traces of their releases?

Did somebody order an extra helping of suspense?


Pretty funny that it's Emma's fault the demons showed up early, but too bad she probably won't learn that was the reason.



She'll definitely learn it and be wracked with guilt when a bunch of people die fighting.



It's not like their plans were any different just because they showed up a day early. Nothing really changed; it's the first time in the entire manga that I've ever felt there was some cheap and meaningless suspense.

Also, basically nothing happened in this chapter. Having a huge revelation or cliffhanger almost every time has spoiled us; now we expect to be thrilled. Though, really, it's pretty fucked up to reveal that Norman is alive and then immediately leave him behind again. I want to see what he's up to! I missed him!



NO huge twists this chapter. Just the beginning of war.



They better not dick us out of a victory by having some minor nobody demon suddenly turn the tables on the kids. I want the first panel of the next chapter to be the standing over his corpse and debating where to mobilize to next to help the other kids.

Fucking hell. I was a little worried when the chapter was just a drawn out recap of what we already knew. Thank fuck this is actually progressing somewhere.



Those giant boobs weren't so noticeable the other chapter were they? Maybe it's part of her battle tactics.

Doujins of her luring orphan boys in/orphan boys unleashing pent up, sexual fury on her when?

Speaking of sex, how have none of these kids managed to get accidentally knocked up?


You got your wish! That demon was some rich boy bitch, now he's dead.

When will the twists kick in!? Are we going for a third chapter with no twist? I don't know how to handle not being surprised at the end of every chapter.



The twist is that there's no twists this time! At least until they go to stage their escape and realize something else is going on at Goldy Pond at the last second




The real twist is those tiddies are venom glands



I would twist them either way.
