Yakusoku no Neverland Season 2 Episode 6 Discussion & Gallery
Even I, who didn’t read the original source, know that something wrong has happened with Yakusoku no Neverland. I wouldn’t go as far as saying that the Anime should be canceled (let’s not forget that the ones working on it are human, too), but it’s true that an Anime that was a perfect 10 is not a 6-7, at best.
The main problem about the Anime jumping a full arc is that nothing makes sense anymore. Emma and Rai seem that they just didn’t do anything throughout a year while Norman was able to save the kids who were being experimented with and those in a post-production farm. From what I could gather, in the original source, Emma is caught, and she’s then saved by Norman on this particular farm. This would define her as a character and would make the conversations with Norman’s lackeys quite differently.
The main problem the protagonists are now facing is that most want to eradicate the demons, while Emma feels that is too extreme. Demons are, in fact, intelligent beings. They have dreams, families, and friends – same way as humans. However, since Emma didn’t go through all the horrors there is in this world as the others, her argument will always seem naive.
Another thing that I disliked about this episode was how everything Norman did was explained by him speaking. There were no visuals portraying the experiments or the fast-production farms, which was a big overlook on the creators’ part. Let’s not forget that Yakusoku no Neverland caught everyone’s interest due to its dark vibe, and there’s nothing darker than a human fast-production meat factory.
It’s a shame – really! I was ready to place Yakusoku no Neverland in my top 10 best Animes of all time. Season one, as I discussed before, was almost perfect, and I loved it. Unfortunately, the second season is leaving too much to be desired. And episode six was just a prime example of that.
I’ll be adding new galleries throughout the season as new episodes come out. Enjoy! If you have a website and want to use one of my images, feel free to do so. I’ll be happy if you backlink to this article, but it’s not mandatory.
