    A show set at an orphanage where the kids are spoiled not realizing that they are actually becoming food for the demons. As such, the kids are trying to escape this place is not quite what they thought it was.

    Airs: Thursday, January 10, 2019

    Studio: CloverWorks

    At Grace Field House, life couldn't be better for the orphans! Though they have no parents, together with the other kids and a kind "Mama" who cares for them, they form one big, happy family. No child is ever overlooked, especially since they are all adopted by the age of 12. Their daily lives involve rigorous tests, but afterwards, they are allowed to play outside.

    There is only one rule they must obey: do not leave the orphanage. But one day, two top-scoring orphans, Emma and Norman, venture past the gate and unearth the harrowing secret behind their entire existence. Utilizing their quick-wittedness, the children must work together to somehow change their predetermined fate.

    Episode 1

    Food for thought.

    Just when it looked like the kids were living in heaven, that place turns out to be a hell as the only thing that awaits these kids is death. Norman, Ray, and Emma all found that out by accident when they were trying to give Conny her plushie that she left behind and had to hide from the demons to make it back and let everybody else know what really happens when they leave. Quite a tremendous way to open things up and I'm looking forward to seeing how things play out now that the big truth the mistress of the orphanage was trying so hard to hide from these kids.

      Re: Episode 1

      It really kills me that these threads don't have any discussion anymore. This would be such a great show for it. I knew I'd love it from the manga, which I've been reading every week since it started, but I still couldn't have anticipated such an incredible adaptation. Literally perfect in every way, even more than I would've dreamed in an ideal world. If they can keep up this level of quality, we'll have one of the best anime of the year starting right at the beginning.
