This reminds me of an actual book called Set Apart, which was itself an analysis of Haibane Renmei through a Christian perspective. While I knew it didn't really reflect the creators' intent and I myself am no Christian, it was an interesting read regardless of a favorite great series, I assume it would be similar with this Promised Neverland book.

Looking forward to Rebecca's review of the (hopefully) eventual English translation. Very Happy

That’s good, but would they attempt a Formalist interpretation of it?

I think the premise of The Promised Neverland comes from Kazuo Ishiguro's Never Let Me Go.

Interesting! There have been a couple of guide books analyzing The Ancient Magus’ Bride That we’re translated by Seven Seas, so maybe Viz would consider bringing this over?
