Surrounded by forests and fenced entrances, Grace Field House is inhabited by orphans who live happily together as a large family, guarded by their "Mama", Isabella. Although they are required to take the test every day, children are free to spend their time as they wish, usually playing outside, as long as they don't dare to be too far from the orphanage - the rules they must follow no matter what happens. However, all good times must end, because every few months, a child is adopted and sent to live with their new family ... never hear from again.

However, the three oldest siblings have their suspicions about what really happened at the orphanage, and they will find a cruel fate that awaits children who live in Grace Field, including the twisted nature of their beloved Mama.

Yakusoku no Neverland - The Promised Neverland Reviews: [01]





Hint
Yakusoku no Neverland is clearly one of the most anticipated 2019 series, thrilling experience, and a new touch on the common shonen template. The first episode hit the anime community by storm and strengthened its place in the height of winter with the sequel to Mob Psycho 100, and Dororo. Through a combination of evocative directions, unpleasant sound designs, and very tense steps, the disclosure of the big secret events that stretch along the road is very frightening, for the most part - bringing us closer to the horror of the character's situation. This is a killer hook and statement of strong purpose for this adaptation based on the Kaiu Shirai manga of the same name. Shutter Island meets Chicken Little with Death Note and Peter Pan. With strained cat and mouse grooves, charming characters and unique worlds, The Promised Neverland has made several serious waves since then.

Imagine being alone in the world, you have nothing, no family, only names. You are under the care of a loving mother figure and you are surrounded by extraordinary friends at the orphanage. There are certain rules to not be allowed to approach the gate or fence, but who needs to do it? The house has everything you need. Every now and then, some of your friends who grow up together have to go and go to the world to find their true calling. You imagine one day joining them, and you can't wait. Everything is perfect. Now imagine what would happen if that precious little life was turned upside down. This is the story of The Promised Neverland, and it follows one of our protagonists and heroes, Emma - a young girl who lives in Grace Field House which is a glorified prison. He and other orphans have tattoos on the back of their necks, they must undergo rigorous tests, and comply with regulations to never leave the orphanage yard.

Not that they realize that this is a bad thing; children admire their lives and their always-loving "Mama" is named Isabella. However, Emma and her close friends (and co-protagonists), Ray and Norman, finally find that Isabella secretly feeds her sweet little angels to a group of scary and shocking demons who understand the business. The orphanage is nothing more than agriculture and children are basically livestock. With the folly of fleeing with the other kids before they were all on the menu, the three began a dangerous cat-and-mouse game with Isabella, her strict supervision of them at all times. Emma, ​​Ray, and Norman are welcome to breathe fresh air. They have no special superpowers outside of their intelligence, there is no tragic background to them, and there isn't even anything strange about them. They are your ordinary children, who work well for stories like this. That doesn't help them in the personality department, with each character only showing one or two main traits outside being not interested in being eaten by demons.

But by saying that, the narrative still gives them the naivete and innocence that really makes you want to see them succeed in a tense mind play with Isabella. Mind games alone are your standard fee for this genre, being five steps ahead of your opponents and all that jazz, but they are fun and interesting to follow all the same. Emma has a very open and happy personality, she acts as a mediator and leader - the type who wears her heart on her sleeve. He is physically strong and sometimes shows his ignorance with his optimistic ideals, but he means well. Many ways Norman is the group's spiritual leader, they all view him as a director because he is the third strategist. He is very cunning, creative, cool, calm and collective. Ray is also very clever but he is a bit hot-tempered. He is a realist more than anything and gets nervous when people can't really see things from the perspective of reality. He is also a good strategist, even if that strategy means to sacrifice for the greater good. Not because Ray was right in his mind, but the harsher reality would never match Emma's idealism.

The way they do extraordinary climate moments. Understand that the loudest silence is the stillness of the camera, the use of sound effects such as water drops from the ceiling, creaking floors, heavy breathing, really helps increase tension and fear. Wisely choosing to focus on adapting the spirit of exchange, the production team at CloverWorks uses an emphasis on sharp bends, long physical aisles, and the impact of stairs with cinematography. Although, some background art is rather bland, sometimes CG, CG's background is actually quite important because it allows the show to achieve a dolly-style skillet and angled turns that determine its visual identity - pursuing its own aesthetic goals in the best possible way. can. The character designs are not too special, they all wear the same clothes and have faces that look weird, but they have characteristics in their appearance. The soundtrack goes hand in hand with the visuals, and the animation is rather consistent and smooth. "Touch Off" by UVERworld is a great song choice for OP, the lyrics are really touching about what this story really is.

With that said, there are times when The Promised Neverland is on par with its literary aspirations. And as an attractive premise with good execution, there are times when the full pathos and potential premises are realized. Even if it doesn't always make it out of the park, the big premise gives this series the ability to go to places that have never been blessed by the same series. It's not perfect at all, it does have flaws but this is a very great anime, and I also think that this easily shows the perfect gateway to the media. I highly recommend this series if you like mysteries and thrillers in an unforgiving world with enough twists and turns to keep you on the edge of your seat. Looking forward to the sequel in 2020.

Yakusoku no Neverland - The Promised Neverland Reviews: [02]





Hint
Promised Neverland is a great psychological thriller manga, but this adaptation trades complicated psychological warfare with conventional horror. The mystery is simplified, the character is lacking in the absence of an inner monologue, and the artwork is mediocre. Apart from these shortcomings, constant tension and worry make it worth watching.

This adaptation is pursued in a tense atmosphere with interesting horror. On the other hand, the manga focuses on long-term psychological horror born of characters who gradually learn about the dystopian hell world where they live, and their strategic planning to avoid it. The premise of this story is still very interesting: Demonic farms where children are livestock and the brain is the most desirable part of the body, disguised as an orphanage. Tension consumed the entire show.

What I find most interesting about The Promised Neverland is not just the premise, but the main goal is that every child escapes certain death on the farm. Emma, ​​Norman, and Ray are quite capable on their own, but Emma is so empathetic and selfless that she is determined to save everyone. Rooting for him, purely based on easy motivation. Is he a simple character? Of course, but seeing him sacrifice everything to save the children is truly enchanting. Norman and Ray have their own motivations, a little more complicated. Ray, a pessimist who is pondering is his own puzzle box, is obviously to be dismantled in the next episode this season. He immediately contrasts with Emma  ​​and sees their charming moral clashes. Norman, on the other hand, was motivated by Emma. He sees it as a beacon of hope. His support makes him popular, and he has the most skills out of the three. However, he was silent. Without an inner monologue, he has no depth. The problem is, there is no extraordinary amount of depth for the main character. That's not a good sign that they are the three most advanced characters in the show. The mass of orphans can be condensed into one character because they have little or no personality, give or take some of them. Reminiscent of the character of Attack on Cannon Titan who died cruelly, children exist for one purpose, to be saved by Emma and look funny. Many of them go throughout the show without even having one line.

Only eleven years, they are all far smarter than most of us at that age; their intensive education is needed so that their brains become high-quality food. Their intelligence is a little inhibiting trust, especially because it was never explained how their education made them like this. I consider that to be an unimportant oversight in the story because the three main characters make smart decisions when in complicated situations. There is no frustrating parable here, at least among our protagonists. What will make the characters more convincing is the inclusion of deep monologues so that they can give us insight from time to time about their state of mind and their deep strategies? One of the most interesting aspects of the manga is watching one of the clues stuck in a situation that seems impossible just to avoid it with their intelligence, which we can see on the screen. As for the villain, the guardian of the orphanage, Mama is an intimidating figure who lends most of the show. He is used to discarding world expositions and developments but has never really been a determined, sympathetic and unstoppable force that he is in the manga. Unfortunately, this event chose to move faster at the expense of psychological elements.

The characters face obstacles in the path of their goal as they learn more about the mysterious arrangement and Mama. This is an addictive story with procedural development. Even when the only action on the screen just talks a long time, it's still entertaining. Standard shot-reverse-shot camera work is used for most of this, with long-term reflection or creative panning images using a CGI background. Tense background music with low notes works well to maintain the atmosphere. If only the mystery wasn't too easy to predict, it would be a great show. Extraordinary twists in plain sight, extremely telegraphic bends, and exaggeration show that the prize doesn't have the impact it should. We were given explicit instructions to unite the mystery, but they made the bend too clear. Fortunately, the plot moves from one plot point to the next plot.

Modern horror has been filled with cheap shock factors, it is very refreshing to see shows - especially anime - conveying horror patiently building tension. Worth praising Neverland for the lack of fear to jump. Fear is the main purpose of this adaptation, in contrast to the more psychologically tense approach to manga. Excessive facial expressions, sometimes too excessive. Music is used to build tension in the place of character thinking. The orphanage is more depressed than her colleague; halls lined up in the dark, shadows lurking in every corner. The soundtrack is good when scary scenes and kickass opens and closes songs.

Blurring the background in events such as The Promised Neverland is an important part of the mystery. Information was slowly revealed to us throughout the show. Unfortunately, the settings for the first season are rather thin. It was just an orphanage surrounded by forests. Of course, there is a little more because this is a mystery, but it is not enough to justify the lack of significance for most environments. It would be far better if there were different clues, easter eggs, and red herrings that give us a little information about the outside world. When characters are trapped in confined spaces with the aim of escaping, there needs to be a compelling reason to anticipate disclosure. Grace Field can be an interesting place if more time and attention to detail are put into the making; with the mystery embedded in the world, the prize will be far more satisfying. Farther away from the world is the drab background art that engulfs a color palette, which is mostly brown and green.

Many well-executed photoshoots replace poor backgrounds and art inconsistencies. CGI is used for extraordinary effects when it allows the camera to move freely and rotate around the location. First-person perspective photos from a character perspective offer some of the best tension in the show; when one of our heroes walks in a dark and quiet alley, it makes you anticipate something that frightens us when we turn. Every time the director puts us in the character's perspective, the show truly shines as a convincing horror. Even after the monster is outside the screen, there is always a shot that triggers anxiety interspersed in each episode: sometimes the camera is mounted on the swing of the pendulum clock to ensure the pressure never stops until the final credit is rolling. Panning the camera in the CGI hallway or going up the stairs shows the constant movement of the main characters and villains like a cat and mouse game. Aside from that fear, it's very impressive how often a crowd of children is animated separately without CGI, fortunately, it's not widely used by Cloverworks in other anime.

[Final score: 6/10]
I'm a big fan of horror; when I heard The Promised Neverland was adapted, I was very happy. Although it did not meet my expectations, it was a worthy show. However, if you want a more complete experience with this story, I recommend reading a much superior manga. Hopefully, the second season will have more psychological elements, better writing, and better visuals to fulfill the potential this season failed to achieve.
