This year's combined 36th and 37th issues of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine teased on Monday that Kaiu Shirai and Posuka Demizu's The Promised Neverland manga has entered the "climax" of the final arc.
Shirai and Demizu launched The Promised Neverland manga in Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine in August 2016, and the series has entered its final arc as of September. Shirai had stated in an interview last August that Shirai would like the story to "not extend too much" in accordance with the story's editor, adding that the length of the manga should be "ideally 20 to 30 volumes long."
Shueisha published the manga's 15th volume in Japan in Friday. Viz Media publishes the manga in North America.
An anime adaptation premiered on January 10. Aniplex of America streamed the anime on Crunchyroll, Hulu, Funimation, and HIDIVE as it aired. Toonami began airing the anime on April 13. A second season of the anime will premiere in 2020.
