Kaiu Shirai and Posuka Demizu’s The Promised Neverland is being adapted into an anime series for Fuji TV’s famous noitaminA block. A few days ago, we got a preview of its theme song via a new commercial. Now we’ve got a new key visual for the series, plus the airdate of episode 1: January 10.
The Promised Neverland has been running in Shonen Jump since August 2016, and concerns an orphanage with a terrible secret: the orphans are actually being raised as food for demonic creatures.
The anime series is directed by Mamoru Kanbe (Elfen Lied) with scripts supervised by Toshiya Ono (Blue Exorcist: Kyoto Saga).
Here’s how Viz Media describes the manga:
Emma, Norman and Ray are the brightest kids at the Grace Field House orphanage. And under the care of the woman they refer to as “Mom,” all the kids have enjoyed a comfortable life. Good food, clean clothes and the perfect environment to learn—what more could an orphan ask for? One day, though, Emma and Norman uncover the dark truth of the outside world they are forbidden from seeing.
