Synopsis: Emma, Norman and Ray are orphans that live in an orphanage that forbids the kids from leaving the land until they reach 12 years old. All the kids call their caretaker “Mom” and they are all living happily. They wonder why none of the older children who left the orphanage wrote back to them.

Conny, a kid at the orphanage, leaves the orphanage but forgets her stuffed animal. Wanting to return the toy to Conny, Emma and Norman chase after her. They see something shocking, and learn the truth of their existence at the orphanage…

Thoughts: I became interested in this show because all the anibloggers enjoyed the first episode. So I watched it, and I have to say, this show is great. I have something to look forward to every week now. Episode 2 did not disappoint, and I’m curious where they will take this because there are 12 episodes. I’m tempted to read the manga to find out what happens, but I will be patient this time. Watch The Promised Neverland! I strongly recommend it.
