The Promised Neverland Season 2 Continues to Make Changes Away From the Manga

Second season of The Promised Neverland continues to change over time. Frankly speaking, the original content that was hoped to be good turned out to be very disappointing. In episode 9, the story continues towards the end of the story while showing some baffling changes from the manga, and even seemingly leaving behind one of several potentially interesting changes to the anime.

The Royal Family War Has Ended

Norman's “Martha” moment at the end of Episode 8 was apparently not enough to stop him from committing genocide, but it also stopped him from killing anyone. It is very different from the manga, where he regrets the genocide attempt but clearly has no regrets about slaughtering the royal family. the true villain in the story whose rule is oppressive, making other demons depend on agriculture.

The royal family has not appeared in the anime at all, and with only three episodes remaining, it seems unlikely that they will be able to overcome it any time soon. In the manga, Sonju and Mujika are able to repair the demon world by filling the void in power, but if that power vacuum doesn't exist, it doesn't make sense that their presence is expected to fix everything.

Old Demon An Evil Blooded Demon

Episode 9 confirms what happened at the end of Episode 8, the blind old demon who turns out to be named Vylk is "bloody evil". Whereas Sonju and Mujika have to live in hiding due to persecution, Vylk has been successfully running his business in an ordinary demon society for 700 years. He can help anytime until now.

To be fair, he has every reason to fear what will happen if this secret is revealed, but having another evil-blooded character lurking in plain sight makes Sonju and Mujika less important. The fact that Vylk also happens to have the rest of the map on him and the cure for Norman's seizure is too convenient too. [post_ads]

The Change in Isabella's Abandoned Story

It seems that the scene in Episode 4, where Isabella is assigned to find the children doesn't mean anything. I don't know why or the meaning will be put aside as this anime too often does with important plot points. She still hasn't found any children but she's been promoted to Grandma, making one of the few changes from the manga with the potential for a story that actually feels completely pointless.

Vincent is a traitor

At least this part of the new storyline makes some sense. The fan theory that Vincent was a secret traitor was fairly common when the manga The Promised Neverland was still going on, but it turns out he's been completely loyal to Norman all this time. She doesn't have a major role in the story, so giving her something more important to do makes a lot of sense, especially in the anime adaptation.

However, there are two main problems with this change. The first problem was that Vincent, along with the rest of the Normans, had little screentime or character development so there was no emotional response to this change. The second, more insidious problem is that making the only prominent black character a villain in a series who already has a problem with anti-black racism is not a very pretty look. [post_ads_2]
