Yakusoku no Neverland Season 2 Episode 5 Discussion & Gallery
Yakusoku no Neverland’s episode five was a nice watch that brought a much-needed overview of the demons’ society. However, by downplaying these monsters a little bit, I feel that season two is starting to deviate from what made me like the Anime so much. Demons are no longer deadly monsters that eat humans just because – they have families, and some don’t have the overpowered capabilities that we’ve seen so far. Due to this, demons don’t seem as evil as in season one, and it’s taking out the fear effect a little bit.
Let me explain. Right at the beginning of the episode, we see that the children can go through a demon village without being discovered. They’re undercover, sure, but it amazes me that no one is able to catch a glimpse of their smell unless they’re really close to them. Until now, I thought that demons had an excellent sense of smell, and that’s why they were able to follow the kids so easily. But, I guess not! I wasn’t impressed with the fact that the Anime didn’t explain how the demons found the kids’ shelter in the last episode. Instead, we get a jump of almost one year in the future, and they’re now living in a castle.
Another thing that this episode lost me a bit was the fact that the demon children seem to need human meat to survive. Well, at the beginning of season two, we got to meet two demons that don’t eat humans, and they seem quite healthy. So, it’s hard to understand if humans are just a delicacy or actually a necessity. From what we could watch until now, it doesn’t make sense that it’s a necessity. However, if it wasn’t, I guess demons could hunt other animals to feed their kids? I really can’t understand.
But what surprised me the most was that I was completely aloof when Norman appeared. I blame the route the series has taken. While season one had that vibe that no one was safe and that anyone could be killed sooner or later, season two has a far lighter tone. In other words, I don’t expect any of the main characters to die, which completely destroys the horror effect of the Anime. This is also true for Norman apparently dying on season one! Considering that he is one of the protagonists, I was kind of expecting him to appear sooner or later.
Honestly, Yakusoku no Neverland season two has left much to desire so far. With the previous episode, it almost seemed that we would get a more tense atmosphere from now on. But considering that when the kids were in danger they were always saved by someone unexpected, the story is just falling apart. I’m curious to know how Norman survived, though. Can’t wait to watch the next episode to find out. Did you enjoy Yakusoku no Neverland episode five? Tell me everything down below. ?
