The Promised Neverland Wiki

Escape (脱出 (だっしゅつ) , Dasshutsu?) is the fifth volume of The Promised Neverland series.


As Grace Field House goes up in flames, Emma and the other children make their run for freedom. With Mom refusing to give up and an army of demons at her call, this escape from captivity won’t be easy. Just what will Emma have to sacrifice to pull it off…?


Volume five of The Promised Neverland has all of the orphans on the verge of escape when it is discovered that Phil is still back with Isabella. Surely, Emma won’t stand for this, right?

Apparently, Emma decided that everyone four and younger will be left behind during the escape. They know that they have two years at minimum before they are shipped out so the plan is to leave the younger ones and return later to rescue them when they’re older. Isabella is quick to figure out their method of escape but she’s too late. By the time she finds out where they escaped from, they’re already gone!

Now that they have escaped, they have many unknown dangers ahead of them such as not knowing the lay of the land, possible wild beasts, nature itself, and the eventual threat of the demons who will refuse to let them escape. The first peril befalls them when all of the kids suddenly disappear. They fell into an underground cave which ended up being a trap of a man-eating tree. Thankfully, Emma figures out the solution and they overcome the odds. Just when they think they are out of the water, a wild demon beast shows up and gives chase.

Ray offers himself up to the best so they could escape. Just when Ray was about to win, the beast suddenly gets his head cut off! The pursuers found Ray! Emma senses that Ray is taking too long but she collapses. The wound of where her ear used to be has opened up and she begins to run a fever! Things are looking a bit grim!
