posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
The highly anticipated The Promised Neverland anime series is gearing up for its January premiere with a collaboration at the Sky Circus Sunshine 60 Observation Deck in Tokyo. Emma, Norman, Ray, and the other orphans will make their appearance beginning on January 5 until February 11.
The observation deck will host a photo spot that recreates the post-apocalyptic world of The Promised Neverland, an exhibition that includes character model sheets from the anime and illustrations, limited edition goods, and original drinks inspired by Emma, Norman, and Ray. The collaboration will include larger-scale events, but staff won't announce details until the end of December.
The Sky Circus is an aerial virtual reality entertainment center located in Ikebukuro, Tokyo. Besides offering views of the expansive Tokyo metropolis, it also has a cafe, interactive areas for kids and adults, and virtual reality areas that utilize height and other effects to enhance the experience.
Kaiu Shirai and Posuka Demizu launched the manga in Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine in August 2016, and the series has entered its final arc as of September. Shueisha shipped the manga's 11th compiled volume on November 2. The manga has more than 7 million copies in print worldwide, with more than 4.2 million copies in print in Japan.
Viz Media is serializing the manga in its digital English edition of Shonen Jump, and is also publishing the volumes in print. The company shipped the seventh volume on December 4. Viz Media describes the story:
The children of the Grace Field House orphanage have their happy lives upended when they find out they're being raised to be fed to demons. Can they escape their fate before it's too late?
Mamoru Kanbe (Elfen Lied, The Perfect Insider) is directing the anime at A-1 Pictures' CloverWorks studio (Persona 5 The Animation). Toshiya Ono (Gatchaman Crowds, The Perfect Insider) is writing the series composition, Kazuaki Shimada (Mahou Shoujo Nante Mouiidesukara.) is designing the characters for animation, and Takahiro Obata is composing the music.
The anime will premiere in January 2019 on Fuji TV's Noitamina block and stream exclusively on Amazon Prime in Japan.
