posted on by Karen Ressler
This week's issue of Viz Media's English digital edition of Weekly Shonen Jump announced on Monday that the next issue will publish the first chapter of Kaiu Shirai and Posuka Demizu's The Promised Neverland (Yakusoku no Neverland) manga as part of its "Jump Start" initiative on August 1.
Author Shirai (Ashley Gate no Yukue) and illustrator Demizu will launch the manga in Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine in Japan on the same day. The first chapter will have an opening color page and will be 54 pages long.
Viz Media describes the story:
Emma and her friends have a pretty good life at the orphanage they grew up in. Though the rules may be strict, the caretaker is kind. But why are the children forbidden from ever leaving...?
In the "Jump Start" initiative, Viz Media's Shonen Jump publishes the first three chapters of a new manga simultaneously with the Japanese release.
