The manga’s journey began back in August 2016, when Shirai and Demizu launched it in Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine. The series concluded in June 2020, and in October of the same year, Shueisha published the 20th and final volume.

Beyond its native Japan, The Promised Neverland has garnered a dedicated following in North America, thanks to Viz Media’s diligent effort in publishing the manga both digitally and in print. English-speaking audiences can also enjoy the manga digitally via MANGA Plus.

The immense popularity of the manga naturally led to an anime adaptation, which premiered in January 2019. Aniplex of America ensured that fans in the US could watch it through platforms like Crunchyroll, Hulu, Funimation, and HIDIVE as it aired. Additionally, Toonami began airing the anime in April 2019. Despite challenges caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the second season of the anime eventually premiered in January 2021, following a delay from its initial October 2020 schedule.
