Yakusoku no Neverland chapter 165 hit all the right notes this week and we can honestly say this…wow! what a chapter! Our chapter starts with Isabella—yes it’s a flashback beginning—showing signs that she knows her death is approaching but welcomes it with open arms. Isabella has always been troubled by her actions as “mother” and dying means a release…at least that was the thought. During the meeting to decide her fate, Isabella isn’t sentenced to become a meal but is promoted to Grandmother status! This also seems to coincide with a familiar evil—Peter Ratri—who just so happens to find a shocked Isabella and convince her that he has within him the power to help her escape her internal hell. If we know Peter by now, he’s not that nice of a man.
In the present, Grandmother Isabella is seen with Peter as they learn of the fate of the queen. With this sudden news, it has been decided that a sacrifice of children is needed and that job happens to fall on the shoulders of our once mother Isabella. When she returns home to the farm the children are happy at first. However, after Isabella cracks Nat’s fingers—he was the child Peter attacked—she then admits the kids will be disposed of in order. With worried hearts, the kids all feel like the end is nigh but a crack echoes out from afar and three heroes appear in the distance! Emma, Ray, and Norman need to rush to save their former friends! We will have to wait at least two weeks before the next chapter but until then, here’s why reading chapter 165 now is truly worthwhile!
1. From Mother Hell to Grandmother Hell
We felt bad for Isabella when we originally learned her thoughts way back in the earlier days of Yakusoku no Neverland. In many ways, Isabella dying seemed to be her only escape from this never-ending cycle she had been stuck in. Unfortunately, Isabella has been corrupted again by being promoted and it seems her heart is now truly beyond repair. This could all be an act but from how she seemed in the finale of chapter 165, either she is an amazing actor or truly just an evil soul like Peter.
2. The Cavalry is Coming!
Grandmother Isabella has arrived ready to deliver some fresh kids to our new demons but that won’t be so easy for her to accomplish. Three young heroes are racing to the rescue in the form of Grace Field House originals Emma, Ray, and Norman! Despite not knowing what to expect, our kids are armed and ready to be the saviors they were chosen to be! We can’t wait for their grand rescue…in the next two weeks…sigh.
Yakusoku no Neverland will be having a bit of a break for a few weeks—might be less by the time you’re reading this review—but we are excited for what will come next.
