After weeks of waiting to find out what was replacing Megalo Box we finally have our answer, Toonami has announced on Facebook that The Promised Neverland will premiere on Toonami Saturday, April 13th.
At what time in the block it will premiere is still unknown and will be announced at a later time, the block will again be doubling up on Sword Art Online on April 6th following this Saturday’s back-to-back airing of Sword Art Online due to the glitch on March 16th.
Synopsis: At Grace Field House, life couldn’t be better for the orphans. Though they have no parents, together with the other kids and a kind “Mama” who cares for them, they form one big, happy family. No child is ever overlooked, especially since they are all adopted by the age of 12. Their daily lives involve rigorous tests, but afterwards, they are allowed to play outside. There is only one rule they must obey: do not leave the orphanage. But one day, two top-scoring orphans, Emma and Norman, venture past the gate and unearth the harrowing secret behind their entire existence. Utilizing their quick-wittedness, the children must work together to somehow change their predetermined fate. – Via IMDb
