The Promised Neverland: near the end of the manga?
According to what emerged from the pages of the double issue 36/37 of Weekly Shonen Jump (Shueisha), available in Japan from the 5th of August, in the next issue of the magazine, and 38° on the 19 August, The Promised Neverland, the manga written by Kaiu Shirai and designed by Posuka Demizu, is celebrating its three years of serialization, and not the case will be the protagonist of the cover.
Not only the cover, the chapter in course of publication in the magazine (number 146) will also boast a color page, but, still, it seems that the news are not finished.
@OrganicDinosaur, Twitter user that provides each week news on the work fantasy, reports that the celebrations are due to the “immersion” of the manga towards the climax of the final chapters.
Here are the misc. merch advertisements and back page announcements for TPN from the WSJ joint issue #36-37~ The editorial staff has clearly written"最終章クライマックス"in the back page preview, so the serialization for the TPN seems to be ending quite soon~ pic.twitter.com/J6GM73LQsW

The Twitter user, clearly, has stated that the manga will not end in the next chapter, this is not the case. However, it is not explicitly confirmed if it is “the final chapter” or “the final chapters”, since it is not specified, the singular or plural.
Therefore, it is more logical to think that the declaration of Shueisha refers to the gradual approach to the end of the serialization of The Promised Neverland, and that the epilogue may come as soon as possible.
In September 2018 the writer of the manga, Kaiu Shirai had said that the manga was entered in the narrative arc of the final. Now, almost a year after the choice, it would also be reasonable to think that Shueisha is committed to promote the approach at the end.
Although fans may feel bitterness about it, we still remember that the authors have always made it clear to extend the manga for still others 10 to 20 volumes with respect to 10 out in the last year (currently in Japan they have been published 15).
Emma, Norman and Ray live happily since birth in an orphanage, surrounded by a dense forest, cared for by a loving “mom”. Their illusion of normalcy falls apart when they discover what really happens to those who leave the house to be “adopted”, and what's behind it is the wall that delimits the forest: the kids do not remains that wits to try to escape. Begins a deadly game of cat and mouse!
The Promised Neverland is written by Kaiu Shirai and designed by Posuka Demizu on the pages of the weekly magazine of Weekly Shonen Jump, from 1 August 2016. The manga currently has come to the chapter number 144, with 15 volumes published.
In Italy the work is published by J-POP with the first 10 volumes available.
