Children. Merrily enjoying life with one another within a secluded environment. Forced to do obscure tasks that many of them don't question. Usually with one or two curious cats in the bunch that are eager to learn more, only to discover how deep the rabbit hole truly goes, and have their entire perception of reality unravel before their eyes. Ring any bells?

Well if so it's probably because the plot has been done to death. However in the case of 2016's hit manga series, The Promised Neverland, a refreshing twist is being brought to the table this time around; the real world.
