With The Promised Neverland Season 2 fast approaching, more and more news is coming every day. And now, the official Japanese website for the series has revealed an eerie new key visual for the upcoming season.
The visual presents a haunting contrast between humans and demons. On the right are the familiar faces of Grace Field House, including Emma and Ray. On the left are two new faces, the demons known as Mujika and Sonju.
Along with the new visual, Aniplex confirmed that Japanese voice actor Atsume Tanezaki will be playing Mujika, while Shinichiro Kamio will voice Sonju. Manga fans know there’s plenty to learn about these two!
We also got confirmation on some new and returning staff members for the series. Mamoru Kanbe returns as director at CloverWorks, with Toshiya Ono returning to supervise scripts, now joined by The Promised Neverland manga author Kau Shirai!
Originally set to air earlier this year, The Promised Neverland Season 2 begins broadcast in Japan on January 7. The manga series ended this past summer, with bonus chapter releasing this month. Amazon is currently developing a live-action, English-language adaptation of the series.
