Author Notes

Mr. Minerva! He's finally here!

Ever since the bookplates in the library showed up, I've had many people ask me, "What kind of person is Mr. Minerva?" And every time I evaded the question, I was looking forward to this day.

Isn't it nice to have something to look forward to?!

What I'm currently looking forward to is the second season of the anime in 2020! And what I'm going to eat tomorrow.

Next is volume 15! Please look forward to it!

Writer Shirai's personal highlights for The Promised Neverland fanatics, part 10!

1. Chris's name (Kurisu) and the Japanese word for medicine (kusuri) being similar was a coincidence. (I realized it later.)

2. Zazie is actually five years old.

3. Highlight #3 in volume 13 might make more sense after you read chapter 120 in this volume.

About the splash page for chapter 118... The remaining pages in their scripts represent their remaining life spans. Only Ray is holding two, but it's not clear which one is the script. Isn't that crazy? I love it!!

Please enjoy this volume!
