Yeah, Sonju just wants some blasphemy-free meat out of this. He's not in for their revolution.
The kids were probably lucky he's like that. Musica just wanted to capture and sell them back to the farm.
I’m just looking forward to when Norman’s plan falls apart epically & Emma has to bail out his ass.
I starting watching the anime and liking it so far (am at episode 3 right now) one question should I go back and read the manga when am done or continued off were the anime ends.
I also hope that there is a crossover with The Doomguy/The Doom Slayer at one point.
The main difference between the two is that the anime cut off pretty much all of the inner monologues, which hurts the "intellectual battle" side of the show a little bit. So it wouldn't hurt to experience the first four volumes in manga I think.
If you don't want to bother though, then the anime's first season stops in the middle of volume 5 − chapter 37. I'd say the escape itself in the final episode is the one part the anime actually did better.
Personally, I think the anime did well to cut the internal monologues in favor of a more visual representation of the character's thoughts, as it fits better for a more audio-visual medium than the long explanations in the manga (plus, the direction and animation both do a really good job of representing that, which also helps). What I did was both things: I watched the anime first, then reread the manga from the start, armed with the knowledge of how the story was playing out, but not of what precise things each character was saying, and I found that was a very enjoyable way.
Either way, both the anime and the manga are superb, and Lyendith's advice of experiencing both is a good one.

I like Iverk was all "Your majesty!" And she was "Bitch please I can do this myself". And she did.
So if she comes out unscathed next week from those suicide bombers I'm expecting her to reveal she knew someone helped Giran all along and didn't bother telling Iverk.
That wouldn't surprise me indeed… Plus, as long as she can protect her vital eye, even being blown to smithereens will probably be a temporary setback at worst.
Leuvis was indeed the little brother.
To rub it in further, she not only points out that he abandoned any pretense of "justice" the moment he thought eating children was an acceptable strategy, she taunts him by saying she prefers his current corrupted self.
She's pouring bags of salt into the wound.

From the looks of it this final arc is gonna be a gauntlet as Emma has to get there in time to rescue the Queen before Norman's forces whittle her down.
Man seeing her without her mask is making me shit myself. I'm worried she might get sniped.
She's got some serious Uncanny Valley vibes going for her.
Who would have thought having fewer eyes would make her more creepy…
I think it might be saving Norman's forces from the Queen. Norman thought Giran would win.
I imagine she'll be thrilled when she discovers what they've done with her baby bro
These guys have nothing to do with Leuvis's death.
I meant the heroes.
A very interesting interview with Neverland's editor about how the series taps into trends that resonate with Japanese youth. From the Masculine Girl, Feminine Boy dynamic of Emma and Norman resonating with the growing trends of feminism and LGBT acceptance to the fact that readers nowadays don't like it when there's too much focus on only the main character.

The idea that the series' premise symbolizes how kids these days have a more lenient childhood but must still eventually face the brutal aspects of society makes a lot of sense, yet it hadn't hit me before I read this interview.
The emphasis on plot over characters is apparently deliberate too − alas, that's the one aspect of this series that stops it from being my favorite in the Jump. Also a reason I never really was a fan of Death Note (though DN was much worse in that regard).
I’ve seen that exact complaint over the current X-Men run.
I guess that's hard to completely avoid when you have Loads and Loads of Characters…
Chap 151! You Can't Thwart Stage One, but if Norman is the one planning you can't thwart stage two either. It's pretty terrifying how accurate his predictions have been so far. There was the fumble with the Musica assassination squad, but he probably accounted for that too in some way.
Gotta say the fact she figures out instantly what they're doing is nice too.
Also not good cutting away to blood spilling offscreen usually means they failed. Since the Queen noticed what they were doing, her feigning weakness if it doesn't work on cursed blood will turn it around. Not helped they're getting super excited about it being a success, unlike before where they made sure stage 1 went perfectly before striking and saying it went as well as could be planned.
Despite that Even if the queen and Iverk are fine, the citizens outside are not so they'd be screwed unless she eats more of them, rampaging monsters and an army to fight is still a disadvantage.

...I gotta say, they may be the villains, but I was kinda rooting for the demons for a second there, just because I dislike Norman's flunkies. Still, I don't think this is the end of it. I'm expecting for Zazie or one of the soldiers to have one of those headaches they've been having right before they get the killing blow. Or maybe the queen has something else up her sleeve.

So Queen was hoisted by her own petard huh
Felt pretty anticlimactic honestly.
So yeah Chapter Out.
For fucks sake Norman. If Emma dies because she can't live up to her side of the deal, its on the heads of you and your band of marauding gassing psychopaths.
Yeah I was hoping the last demon would be rescued in time.
Huh I wonder if they could just put Musica on the throne now.
