The Missing Element Of The Promised Neverland: Anime Review

After watching 3 episodes I’m kinda disappointed with the direction of the anime adaptation. One important element to why the manga was so great was because of its internal monologues. At its very core, The Promised Neverland is about the battle of wits between the children and their mother. How they try to outsmart each other to achieve their goals. And the inner monologue plays a big part in the manga, which the anime seems to be missing. Don’t get me wrong. The anime adaptation is okay. Although I wish they didn’t rush through the story, I think they’ve done a good job weaving four to five chapters into a single episode.┬áMy main concern is whenever you choose plot over character development, 9 out of 10 the show would turn out okay at best. It’s still entertaining as it is, but it could have been 10 times better if only they took their time building the characters and had a good mix of the right elements.
