    Damn, what a development!

    Spoiler:

    In ch.25 Isabella confronts Norman and Emma. Norman realizes that Ray's cover is blown. Emma attacks Isabella to hold her off while Norman rushes to grab the rope to get the intel from the wall. However Isabella proves she's a real savage by breaking Emma's leg and ofc Norman can't run away after that anymore. And then she tells him that she made his shipment earlier, tomorrow Norman will be shipped out.
    Holy crap!
    Norman is so dead... feels bad being a NormanxEmma shipper...

    That was savage indeed. I hope the series manages to keep this level, it's been really great so far.

    The author does an excellent job of building suspense.

    Isabella is being built up marvelously. If only she could show some more passion for her work.

    Also, a summary of interview with both authors has appeared:

    Quote Originally Posted by Anonymous
    Shirai apparently worked for some company after graduating university. He said it had nothing to do with manga at all and that this is his first time being a real mangaka (or rather manga author).

    He was about to give up after several of his scripts got trashed and told himself that he wasn't talented. He regretted it and called his latest attempt "The Promised Neverland" which was also meant to be his last try as a Mangaka and was written 3 years ago. He wrote 300 pages, because he was unable to properly summarise it and naturally a lot of things were changed from his original script. His intention was just to know if this last attempt was any good or trash like his previous ones. Newcomers usually don't bring 300 pages to such a evaluation meeting, because it's absurd. When Demizu encountered Shirai he read the whole script at once. He would usually get bored midway when he read scripts, but this time - all 300 pages - were so entertaining that he couldn't stop. Back then (well even now if you don't count TPN) Shirai was a nobody, so it was hard to trick Jump into giving the Duo a chance, but Demizu believed in Shirai's talent. Shirai planned back then to let someone else draw it. Shirai himself can draw, but the editor felt like it didn't do the script justice and that it would be too hard to expect Shirai to keep up the quality of the writing and draw it.

    Demizu points out once again that he joined the project after Shirai (and Sugita). Also Sugita is basically responsible for uniting the two into a team (and making them do the oneshot). "They fell in love right away with each other." Shirai loved Demizu's art as much as Demizu loved Shirai's writing. Shirai also knew about Demizu's art before they meet. He explains what he loves about Demizu's art like the expressions, background, cuteness etc. Shirai was so happy when he saw Demizu's draw his oneshot, because the outcome was better than he even imagined. TPN was basically not planned for Jump so it was kinda troublesome to decide with the editor what part of the script should stay the same and what shouldnt. There was stuff Shirai absolutely wanted to keep and that didn't fit Jump, but they ultimately let that in. That's why it's not like the rest of the magazine and more of an oddball (like Death Note was). It looks like the reviews for the Oneshot where alright and that's why Shirai was allowed to go through with most of his vision. Shirai had two oneshots before starting TPN. One was ポピィの願い/Poppy's Desire with Demizu and the other was アシュリー=ゲートの行方/Ashley=The Gate's Whereabouts which he released all alone. Both were published on Jump+.

    - Some of Shirai's influences include Naoki Urasawa, Takeshi Obata, Yusei Matsui (He liked Neuro a lot), Hirohiko Araki in suspense factor, and various others.
    - Shirai often watches movies, which are also a big influence. He mentions a movie he loves called The Good Son, a suspense film.
    - He likes situations with two-sided characters and excitement.
    - Shirai: "Within Jump, while other manga are creating flashy and fierce battles, we only have to make strong pulls with psychological warfare that exceeds that."
    - Posuka likes drawing Krone. Shirai also likes seeing her in action.
    - Posuka also likes drawing Isabella, and thinks she is the only character currently that should be drawn beautifully.
    - Shirai likes to deceive/challenge the readers.
    - Shirai's wants to tell the message of "Friendship, Effort, Victory" (the Jump slogan) in the story. Even if the girl is the hero, without any battles, and if the story seems anti-Jump like, he still hopes it will lead in that message.
    - He's decided the setting and story of the world where Emma will escape to. The meaning/place is in the title "Promised Neverland".
    - The title of the manga was supposed to be "Neverland" only. But, it was supposed to be somewhat better in that "Neverland", so he changed the title.
    He's thinking of developing a way where the term "Promise" is linked to the core of the story firmly.
    Shirai: "If Emma can jailbreak successfully, I'll know the meaning of "Promised Neverland", so I'd like to do my best to not have the series end by that time (laugh)!
    - The jailbreak arc will be finished around volumes 3-4, Shirai doesn't know how it will go but he'd like to proceed to the next arc soon.
    A fascinating story, but do I miss Krone these days.

    Read the interview summary. See him mention The Good Son, an obscure movie about an evil psycopath child that acts innocent and fools everyone around him? Just a totally irrelevant bit of fun trivia, but the more you know, right.

    No more :3 only >:3 now.

    I have the theory that some of the boys (or kids) are demon spawns. Phill is just too freaky and gets too much focus.

    The hell, Phil is adorable.

    Before the volume 2 inside cover, Phil was praised for his test scores, tag game results, and was the one to show Emma the bookplate Morse codes. Even if it is more than goes for the other younger children, a couple of moments in focus is not too much by any standard. It is hard enough to notice while looking for clues, a casual reader will not be aware of it until the possible reveal.

    Other than the elders and Phil, can you name another kid out of the blue?

    Anna, Connie (rip), Doma, Eugene, Mark.

    If you missed it, I did admit that Phil does have more build up than the rest. It is not the same as being in focus.

    Well, maybe if the entire farm attacked her.

    I caught up with this series and iam really enjoying it, definitely will continue reading it.
    Love that kind of out thinking your opponent, but i have to wonder what´s the deal with Isabelle.
    I assume she once broke out herself but now has that special trust from "grandma".
    My guess would be that the humans formed a contract with those demons, that they will harvest for them brains , but for that they leave the rest of the population alone...cruel but effective against an invading alien/demon race^^

    Isabella could probably handle the entire farm without breaking a sweat. In one of the past chapters it shows the kind of training one goes through in order to become a ""mama"". This was through the POV of Sister Krone. It wasn't detailed but I do recall seeing combat and, this has led me to believing that all of the ""mamas"" are highly skilled in the art of combat.

    I saw that too, but aren't there like 30+ kids there?
