Writer Kaiu Shirai and artist Posuka Demizu's popular Weekly Shonen Jump series, The Promised Neverland, has entered the "climax" of its final arc and will thus conclude in the near future.
According to Anime News Network, the newest issue of the popular Japanese magazine revealed the information. This news comes after Shirai confirmed in August the series would "not extend too much [longer]." As of writing, the manga is currently on Chapter 145 and has 15 volumes published through Shueisha.
The Promised Neverland first appeared in Shonen Jump in 2016. The series, which is one of the magazine's most popular, initially follows a trio of orphans (Emma, Ray and Norman) attempting to escape from Grace Field House, which they discover is actually a farm designed to create the tastiest children possible for demons. As the series has progressed, the group has since left the farm in pursuit of finding a way to stop the practice of eating human children forever. The Promised Neverland was adapted into an anime of the same name earlier this year.
Viz Media releases English translations of The Promised Neverland weekly. The anime's second season will premiere in 2020.
