Anyone else a fan here? This series just started, but it has me hooked. The first ToC ranking for it was 4th, which is great for a new series. I'm really curious how well the volume sales will hold up, as well as the ToC.

It's a decent series so far IMO. It's an interesting concept but I prefer those type of series as live action series.

Neverland going to have a CP on Issue 45 of Shounen Jump. So, we can assume that this series is safe for a while.

4th and 6th ToC rankings, yeah, I'd agree.

The latest chapter was really good. One of the kids is a spy, and it seems they're almost ready to escape. Nice color page, too.

Although it's not excellent, it's a good series in my opinion. So far, I'm not passionate about it as I was for some other series' and their opening chapters. The mystery of the surrounding world is what keeps me reading it.

The art has room for improvement, but it's obvious that the artist has a lot of potential. All of the colour pages were done in a very good manner.

Regarding the latest development, as soon as chapter 2 or 3, I suspected that one of the kids was going to be Mama's spy. I suspected that mental tests served to select the new Mama and that Ray was groomed to be one, no matter that so far we saw only female caretakers.

Pol, it's a little unfair to expect excellence from a new series. Excellence takes time, it takes build up. In fact, I can't even think of a series that was excellent in the first 10 chapters. Maybe a monthly series, but definitely not a weekly one.

Sorry if you misunderstood me, Toriko. In no way I meant that it should be expected from a new series to be excellent. And, by saying that so far TPN isn't excellent it doesn't mean that the series isn't good so far. Looking back, I'd say that the first chapter was the best one - like a huge jump over an abyss. While other chapters aren't on the same level in my opinion, they're still good enough to keep me reading and looking forward to what happens next (the escape, who's the leach, what problems will they encounter, how does the world outside look etc.)

The spy storyline is interesting so far. I'm more interested in what's going on outside but for the beginning of the series the spy storyline is good IMO.
