omg i haven't watched the first episode of the new season yet but it looks like it ends with emma being rescued by mujika??? that seems like, kinda crazy to be in the first episode so i'm wondering what your thoughts are on pacing and what you think the rest of the season will look like, bc now i'm wondering if they're trying to end the anime with this season which would really surprise me.
Yeah the episode ends that way indeed!!! If you find the time you should really give it a watch honey, it was a very entertaining first episode!!! And seeing Musica animated was a blessing :DD
Don't forget to let me know if you liked it if you do!!!
I do agree, it was crazy to have Musica already in the first episode. Until the very last moment before the anime came out, I thought we wouldn't have seen bunkerman this season. In that scenario, the whole season would have been solely about the kids' adventures in the promised forest; yet here goes most of that arc, and just with the first episode!! What had me believe we wouldn't have been seeing bunkerman is the fact that his VA hadn't been announced (and hasn't yet)- which seemed extremely odd to me, but maybe that's just how anime works? I'm not used to watching anime as they come out, so it might just be a common thing I'm not used to.
In any case, the pacing of the first episode was so fast!! It kinda caught me by surprise- or at least I was hoping real hard they wouldn't have gone for that 炉\_(鈺ワ箯鈺)_/炉
You see, what I'm personally looking for from the anime is more children content: give me all the younger children filler episodes; give me Ray adapting to a life he never thought he would have lasted long enough to live; give me Emma's interior conflict born from killing other living beings; give me all the Gilda and Don content!!! That's my personal preference. Then, to see that many chapters fly by just like that was... Kinda underwhelming I guess. The thing is, I do get it in a way? A lot of anime onlys have excitedly awaited for the new season to come out; Having the pace slowed down with wholesome children scenes probably isn't what most people were hoping for... That's why - though I personally despise it - I eventually came to the conclusion that cutting the snakes of Alvapinera scene made sense: we already had a debatably boring first ten minutes, with the focus on the children adapting to the forest and deciding their next moves; even with that not being my personal preference, I understand the choice of the creative team to keep vivid the action rather than slowing it down with the snakes scene, which gave, although ultimately deadly, a calm and apparently safe place that gave the children a break from the dangers of the surface. I can only say that I'm hopeful they won't keep rushing things in the next episodes as well: the last arcs of the manga were already hella rushed, please don't give us a rushed anime as well. I'd much rather have more filler episodes than several arcs packed in eleven episodes, even at the cost to wait another year to get to Goldy Pond (鈺ワ箯鈺)
Ok now to the hot matter: how much of the manga is the second season going to cover. I've spent the last two days trying to put down, considering the pacing of the first episode, what the next ten episodes will cover; this is what I came up with:
Tumblr media

Tumblr media
I initially didn't intend to post this so it's probably not very easy to read; to summarize, here is the chapters that I'm guessing the various episodes are going to cover:
Episode 1: chapters 38-45
Episode 2: chapters 46-52
Episode 3: chapters 53-60
Episode 4: chapters 61-64
Episode 5: chapters 65-68
Episode 6: chapters 69-73
Episode 7: chapters 74-73
Episode 8, 9: chapters 77-86
Episode 10: chapters 87-82
Episode 11: chapters 93-95 OR 93-97
As you can see, based on the first episode, I'd say the second season will end either with the destruction of GP or with the children getting ready to go search for Cuvitidala.
Now, this is more or less what the second season of the anime will cover if 1) as I said, it will maintain a constant pace to what was shown in the first episode and 2) it will follow the manga as it did in the first season.
It's impossible to tell for sure if the anime will mantain the same pace through the whole thing. But, about the second point, I'm pretty sure the anime won't follow that much the manga storyline as it did for the first season? In the interviews they've repeatedly stated this season will contain more changes; Shirai is listed in doing series composition in the credits (differently from the first season, where he was only credited as author of the source material), and we know Demizu has collaborated to create new designs for the anime. For how I'm interpreting things, even though the first episode strictly followed the course of the manga, in the next episodes the plot is likely to take an entirely different route. The plot course might change, for example, after the kids have separated from Musica and Sonju, or when Emma, Ray and bunkerman are leaving the shelter. I think there's a lot of openings for them to intervene with changes.
Do I think this is going to be the last season? Mmh, I find it unlikely. The audience, and especially the Japanese audience, loves Norman, and since I predict him not having much space in this season, he will probably come back to be a main character in the next ones. Besides, The Promised Neverland is ranked as being the 10th Best-Selling Media Franchise in Japan for 2020, so they'll probably (hopefully) want to keep it going as long as they can.

I wasn't that pissed with TPN S2 in the beginning and had a lot of faith in it. Then it all started going down and I just let out all the salt I was keeping when ep8 released. I then now decided that I'm going to just re-read the manga and now bought volume 9 and 10. Atleast this circus wreck was able to make me see TPN in a newer perspective from all the ranting people do. And your posts were really helpful with that and I just loved every point you made.
Let's all just join together as one and re-read the manga to relieve ourselves from this pain and enjoy the happy things in life (鈼 蠅 鈼)
Awww thank you so much Anon this was so sweet 馃ズ馃ズ馃ズ
Yeah I totally agree!!! Manga is 184 chapters long, that is still a fair amount of content to enjoy. And then there's fanfictions, and then there's fanarts!!!! Edits and gifsets!!!!! And then there's me who has yet to finish their tons of unlikely AU posts!!! We may not get weekly content anymore, but I believe there still is lot of content to enjoy. There's the repeatedly teased Ayshe chapter!!!!! The novels (like the Gilda and Don novel everyone????)!!!!! I have a feeling the special exhibition chapter will be unofficially made public soon and I can't wait for everyone to see it, and to spam Ray's angelic smile everywhere like for real look forward to it that is the best smile Posuka Demizu has ever drawn and I'm not even exaggerating. Demizu's occasional Twitter sketches!! Plus I hope Shirai will eventually reveal the Lambda escape plot line in some way, I know he has it there somewhere.
What I'm saying is that as long as the series gives you happiness, there's still plenty of ways to enjoy it. Let's all have lots of fun while we're together in the fandom!!

#I really should reread the manga... I've wanted to do it for the longest time (鈺ワ箯鈺)#Can you believe I've read it only once??**I** can't believe it.#In four days the last volume will be available in my country... When I finally get it I shall probably give the whole thing a reread#But actually I'm just waiting for the novels to come out where I live (鈺ワ箯鈺)#Today I edited anime Lambda Norman character design to be Lambda Ray and I'm very satisfied with how it turned out!!!!#No I'm not back from the hiatus and I won't be for another while#But I've decided I won't come back to the normal schedule until I've finally written down all my major ideas + done editing what I want!#And most importantly: answered all of the asks because man those 28 people need some answers :')#What I'm trying to say is: I know people are upset with the anime#and the consequences it had on the fandom (like... Pushing away tons of people I guess) and that's extremely valid#But also it doesn't necessarily mean tpn is dead you know? There's still you! And me!#And a bunch of other people who loves the (manga) for what it is!!!!!!#So yeah let's just have a good time :)#I don't really know where I was going with this but Anon left me flattered ahah#I've got quite a bit of followers now and yet every time somebody says they like my posts I'm like 鈥淵ou like???? What????? Wow. ( 陥嶀礂陥)鈥#tpn#the promised neverland#people asks me stuff#I'd say something like 鈥渓et's all do a manga reread together鈥 but also like I'm the kind of person who reads one chapter per day and-#that's it so I don't think I'm the most indicate person to reread the manga with XD
