The Promised Neverland Episode 12 - No chance of avoiding spoilers in a review of the final episode but let's just say this was a lovely way to close the season and leave it totally open for another.

The Promised Neverland Episode 9 Review - It is an absolute literal cliff hanger and it was brilliant.

Boogiepop wa Warawanai episodes 9 and 10 wrap up the Imaginator arc and kick off the new story.
