Author Notes

It's Volume 17! I hope you enjoy the battle between Norman and the queen.

By the way... The queen's hair and other things require applying different screen tones in various places. This intensely tedious job is done by a staffer named Z-san. I met Z-san on Pixiv, and we've been friends for over five years despite never meeting dace-to-face. You never know where you can make friends. Whether it's online or in real life, I've realized it's important to treasure your relationships. Now, the relationship between Norman Emma is getting worrisome, and that's where the story will go next!

Bolume 18 is scheduled to be released in English in January 2021! Please look forward to it!

Writer Shirai's interesting tidbits for The Promised Neverland fanatics, part 5!

I love the art on page 143. The queen's so cool! The phrase "Team I-Want-the-Queen-to-Step-on-Me" popped into my mind.

But if she actually stepped on you, you'd die 100 percent, so I wouldn't actually want to be on that team. But the captain would probably be Yverk.

This volume has a lot of demons. So many different ones appear.

Do we really understand what demons are?

Please enjoy this volume!
