Oyakusoku no Neverland ( (やく) (そく) のネバーランド), or The Parodied Jokeland, is a comedy spinoff manga based on the original manga series. Oyakusoku no Neverland is drawn and written by Shūhei Miyazaki (宮崎周平, Miyazaki Shūhei?).[1]

The title is a play on words in Japanese between Yakusoku (which means "promise") and Oyakusoku (which means "Something trivial and taken for granted").

Oyakusoku no Neverland debuted on January 11, 2019 and concluded on March 28, 2019 with a total of 12 chapters. The series' compiled book volume was released on June 4, 2019 alongside Volume 14 and the English version of Volume 10.[2] Less than one week after its publication, the volume did well in sales and thus reprints had been made.[3]

Currently, the series is only available in Japanese, an English translated version of the novel is yet to confirmed.

Background

The manga was initially intended to be a one-shot work (that is, just one chapter) that would have re-drawn Chapter 1 of the original manga in a comical way. The manga was published in the monthly magazine Jump GIGA on 26 July 2018. However, given the positive response of the one-shot, Oyakosuku No Neverland has become a real series. Starting from January 11, 2019, the spin-off is published every week in the Shōnen Jump+ magazine. It concluded on March 28, 2019 with a total of 12 chapters, which are released near the release dates of the 12 episodes of the anime.

Norman

To see the subject's original manga counterpart, click here
As compared to The Promised Neverland's Norman, The Parodied Jokeland's Norman is seen with his eyes shut most of the time (which is a popular trope in anime and manga), and has an unrequited love for Emma (which is also big and yandere-like and creepy in Emma's point of view). The parody took original Norman's crush on Emma and exaggerated it and make his crush seem yandere-like in the parody. This version of Norman, just like almost every other characters in the parody, are no where as intelligent as their original counterparts.

Anna

To see the subject's original manga counterpart, click here Anna in the original manga is portrayed as a kind-hearted, motherly and modest young girl. In the parody, however, all of which are diminished into a prideful and vain one. This is shown when Anna consistantly called herself cute and find herself to be "the cutest of them all" in the volume extras of the manga when it was published, albeit this is most likely an author's insert or wish-furfillment by the parody manga's writer, Shuuhei Miyazaki.

The name of the caretaker that made a cameo in Chapter 37 who also later became Phil's caretaker in Chapter 100 of the original manga was officially revealed in the spin-off manga itself: Yukko.

Yukko in The Parodied Jokeland is portayed as a frenemy of Isabella's, who is jealous of how the former got a boyfriend when she does not. Isabella spewed several rude yet humorous remarks about Yukko, such as calling her a flat chest.

Leslie

TPJ demons

The parodied demons in The Parodied Jokeland.

As opposed to the menacing, despicable and terrifying demons in the original manga, the parodied version of demons stripped the latter of their defining characteristics, and are replaced with more light-hearted ones; the demons of The Parodied Jokeland are comical and a lot less serious in nature.

Appearance-wise, unlike their original manga counterpart, which have sharp canines, claws, large in size and are polydactyly – which build up to their previously mentioned terrifying outlook, the parody demons are chubby and friendly-looking, and are even considered "cute" by Emma. Template:Cute

Out of all the members of the resistance, the parodied version of Sandy is the most exaggerated and comical one in the bunch. When Violet introduced the members of the resistance to Emma, Sandy would comically pop up next to the person whom Violet was introducing, as he sought to seek attention, sometimes even flashing his identification number on his chest.

Author's Notes

I totally destroyed The Promised Neverland's first class thrill by turning it into this gag manga. I don't care if this is not the usual Emma and others. Please tell that to yourself while reading.
