Discussion Time

Yakusoku no Neverland truly knows how to hit the reader in the gut! In this 163rd chapter, our two good demons have succeeded in reviving one of the elders via Mujika’s blood. After hearing the situation, the elder quickly agrees to help Sonju and Mujika but a problem soon arises destroying their plan. A big ceremony has commenced in the town square and the demon public learns of their queen’s demise. Making matters worse, this demon speaker seems to already have a new set of laws and is quick to announce that those who seemed responsible for the queen’s death are to be killed!

At the center of it all, a human stands watching as his plan unfolds and most will probably realize this most likely is Peter Ratri. As those responsible face possible annihilation, Sonju and Mujika are also shown as culprits and find themselves forced to run as fast as possible to somehow escape! Our duo doesn’t make it far, though, and are captured by demon soldiers, leaving their fate in the hands of a new order…the situation has indeed turned quite dire folks.

Will our demons survive this ordeal and get the elders to somehow change the current demon way? We thought Neverland was closer to a change but chapter 163 of Yakusoku no Neverland has made us question everything. Here’s hoping for a miracle in the next chapter of Yakusoku no Neverland but until chapter 164 drops, let’s examine further what we loved about chapter 163!

Why You Should Read Yakusoku no Neverland (The Promised Neverland) Chapter 163


Sonju and Mujika were able to revive one of the elders proving Sonju’s thoughts on Mujika’s blood to be spot on! The duo even had the elder agree to help them change the world by creating a new system for the demons to follow! Now, our two heroes have been caught and their situation couldn’t look direr! Let us pray our two demon allies don’t perish in the upcoming chapters!

2. Peter’s Game

The Ratri clan has quiet for some time in the Yakusoku no Neverland series…at least we thought they were being quiet. If chapter 163 has taught us anything it would be that Peter seems to have had this game all planned out. Like Norman, Peter Ratri seems to have a broader picture in his mind of how things should play out. The only question we have now is what will Peter do with his newfound demon ruling?

Final Thoughts

Even if it has been a few weeks since chapter 162, this latest chapter of Yakusoku no Neverland hasn’t missed a beat. Just when things looked up for our heroes, they now are captive and could face death by the demons being controlled by Peter Ratri. Will our human kids face a similar fate or can they stop the demons at their old home? Comment below with some theories as we’d love to hear if they match ours!
