Synopsis of Yakusoku no Neverland
At Grace Field House, life couldn’t be better for the orphans. Together with the other children and a kind “mom” who cares about them, they make a big happy family. No child is ever overlooked, especially since they are all adopted at the age of 12. Their daily lives involve rigorous testing, but afterward, they are allowed to play outside.
There is only one rule you must obey: do not leave the orphanage. But one day, two high-scoring orphans, Emma and Norman, venture through the door and discover the horrible reality behind their entire existence: they are all cattle, and their orphanage is a farm to grow food for a mysterious race of demons. . With little time to carry out an escape plan, the children must somehow change their destiny.
