Volume 8 garnered positive responses from critics. Nick Creamer from Anime News Network gave the volume an A grade for its story, A+ grade for its art and an overall grade of A. Creamer describes the [[Search For Minerva Arc]]/Goldy Pond Arc chapters to have embraced both the series' classic conflicts and Shounen staples to excellent effect. A negative response of Creamer is how the return to a prison break narrative would have strike some readers to be repetitive.<ref>[https://www.animenewsnetwork.com/review/the-promised-neverland/gn-8/.145928 Nick Creamer's Volume 8 review] on Anime News Network</ref>

Author NotesEdit

When I was a kid, I went finishing in a small pond and I accidentally cut my hand with a lure. I remember thinking how much it must hurt for the fish who are caught.

The children of Goldy Pond know that someone will be sacrified every time. Do they wonder how much it will hurt for the one being sacrificed?

I'm sure they do.

Okay! The arc about the horrible village will continue in the next volume. Until then…try imaging how someone could survive in this village.

Writer Shirai's interesting tidbits for The Promised Neverland fanatics, part 3!

The maximum age for those who will leave the nest (be shipped out) differs depending on the farm. For Grace Field it's 12 years old. For Glory Bell it's 15 years old.

In this volume, there is a place where you can find out the Geezer's general age. Was it what you thought it was?

Please enjoy this volume! (By the way, did you notice the "umeboshi in the shelter" in volume 7?)
