The manga series has been released domestically by Viz Media and it comes from creators Kaiu Shirai and Posuka Demizu. The project kicked off in Weekly Shonen Jump back in August 2016 and has been steadily rolling on since then.
Plot Concept: Emma, Norman, and Ray are the brightest kids at the Grace Field House orphanage. And under the care of the woman they refer to as “Mom,” all the kids have enjoyed a comfortable life. Good food, clean clothes, and the perfect environment to learn—what more could an orphan ask for? One day, though, Emma and Norman uncover the dark truth of the outside world they are forbidden from seeing.
