The Demon Slayer vs The Promised Neverland: Which manga had a better ending?

Two of the highest-grossing manga series published in Weekly Shonen Jump – Demon Slayer and The Promised Neverland have ended. Both manga ended with a happy ending, but you’ll probably have the same question as me – Which manga had a better ending?

Firstly, both manga series are set in a dark reality and deal with demons, but both are unique in their own way. While the children in The Promised Neverland try to escape the demon world, the Demon Slayer aims to destroy all demons using his swordsmanship.

The Demon Slayer came to an end with its 205th chapter on May 17, 2020. In the final arc, we saw all of the series’ goals nearing completion.

Demon King Muzan’s millennial reign has finally come to an end. Nezuko, Tanjiro’s younger sister, has successfully turned back into a human. All the demons in the world were soon purged, and humanity was safe.

After a long timeskip to modern-day Tokyo, we see some characters have reincarnated and everything is fine. While the efforts of the Demon Slayer Corps are not recorded in history books, their sacrifices are priceless.

The Promised Neverland 

The Promised Neverland manga ended with its 181st chapter on June 14.

Emma saves humanity by bringing them to the human world, at the cost of her memories. The ending of The Promised Neverland depicts Emma’s reunion with her family.

Hasty ending

Both Demon Slayer & The Promised Neverland were criticized for the ending. The ending for both seems really rushed compared to the pacing of the rest of the story.

While the hasty ending of the Demon Slayer may have stemmed from the author’s family problems, there’s no obvious reason why The Promised Neverland would end so quickly.

Specifically, in the case of The Promised Neverland, we’ve seen plot points built up in previous chapters that don’t seem to have any effect on the main plot.


Promised Neverland has many open endings as there are still aspects to be developed further as the cattle kids get better and everyone gets through the trauma together.

The Demon Slayer depicts an era of peace prevailing, which is the goal of Tanjiro and the others.

Therefore, even though both comics have a lot in common and the characters have gone through similar struggles and sacrifices, it seems that Promised Neverland still has a rushed ending. But the two endings must have led to a surge of emotion within us.
