Why The Second Season of ‘The Promised Neverland’ Was Disappointing

The current season of The Promised Neverland has been engulfed in countless complaints from fans. Especially those who read the original manga by Kaiu Shirai and Posuka Demizu.

There are several who do not accept the way things are adapting, since they are skipping parts of it. In other cases, there are events that resolve very quickly, which in the manga have a slower and more satisfactory pace.

Especially for skipping the Goldy Pond arc, one of the most loved by manga fans.

Not content with taking away an entire arc featuring one of the most interesting villains, the anime adaptation of The Promised Neverland still continued to disappoint us.

 The lack of development in key characters caused discontent.  The story of Emma and the other children at the orphanage promised to have great moments on television, but some fans have complained bitterly about its lack of intensity.

This is evident in a scene with Norman, whom we could see as a lonely and unforgiving demon hunter.

The big problem came in the last chapter, when he comes across a demon girl whom he cannot kill because she is named after his friend Emma. As you can see, Norman stops when an old demon calls out to the little demon Emma, ​​which causes him to stop annihilating her.

The big problem is that this scene is not part of the manga, but was invented solely for the anime of The Promised Neverland with unknown intentions.

With the thousands of criticisms on social networks, it begins to seem that nobody really wants to appear as the author of an episode in the series.

 Chapter 10 of the second season of The Promised Neverland does not, by itself, have a screenwriter. Ayako Kurata, Ryo Kodama and Shigeru Fukase are credited as directors. Toshiya Ono, writer of the first four chapters, is responsible for the overall composition of the series. However, this name isn’t visible on the credits.

Kaiu Shirai, co-creator of the manga, even disappeared from the credits in this episode. This absence of a definite author has suggested that, possibly, the development of the anime is going in such a problematic way that no one wants to appear as the one in charge of carrying the story.  It is assumed that he should be mentioned because he was helping supervise the series. Why is he now not on the creative team in the end credits?

Despite the participation of Kaiu Shirai, the agenda of Season 2 of The Promised Neverland it was to finish everything as soon as possible. There were already complaints in the manga about the outcome of the story. Fans felt it was way too rushed, and that it has joined the ranks of bad anime adaptations—the likes of Tokyo Ghoul and Chaos; Child.
