Written by Kaiu Shirai, the popular 2019 Japanese manga series The Promised Neverland aired its Season 2 on January 8, 2021. It has climbed the popularity charts of shonen shows on Japanese television in a very short span of time. The Promised Neverland Season 2 is more of an adventure-thriller anime and less of a dystopian science fiction psychological-horror anime.
Till 12th March, makers had telecasted 9 episodes and only 2 more to go before wrapping up Season 2. It has received a fan rating of 8.7/10 on IMDb. Unfortunately, it is receiving absolutely horrendous ratings and reviews from fans all over. The root cause is tweaking of the original manga series to such an extent that it is no longer enjoyable and phenomenal like The Promised Neverland Season 1.
The Promised Neverland Season 2 Reviews
The disappointing Season 2 reviews are due to the editors skipping tons of content by the mangaka. With more than 75% of episodes aired, fans strongly feel that the season has departed from the manga. The biggest flaw is that Season 2 is probably feeling too rushed, and thus full of plot contrivances.
The feeling of skipped content is due to the new anime season has cut out all of the arcs in between season one and the final arc. These were full of good material and a sudden rush to the ending while keeping more or less the same plot as the manga. The makers have wiped out key characters that fans were really looking forward to.
It appears to be a shoddy piece, a complete tonal shift when the entire middle portion of the series is removed. It’s not impossible to follow but it’ll feel like plot points just come out of nowhere and are suddenly really important in the space of one episode.
A would-be masterpiece has become more of an average season, somewhat unexpected. For anyone who has read the manga, Season 2 episodes do not come even close to the first arc. Many feel that it is better to let Season 1 remain in the head as a really good horror anime. The decision will be more important if you want the taste of mind games and the quiet, subtle horror atmosphere of Season 1.
