Any series where humans become food can be relatively unnerving, but The Promised Neverland is one show that takes it to the next level; what if, instead of full-grown adults, it was children? Living a seemingly normal life with a large group of other children, Emma has thought of her world to be nothing short of perfect. However, when she and her friend Norman witness something truly terrible happen to one of their sisters, the two must plan an escape from the farm disguised as a home. 

There are so many chilling quotes in this series, including the moment Emma discovers that they're living on a farm. When she asks Norman to tell her that they were mistaken and that they didn't see their little sister, Conny, get killed, she asks, "That girl wasn't Conny, right?" Norman's response hits you in the gut when he confirms, "That was Conny." Of course, there are other moments that tell you just how incredibly messed up this series gets. As a younger Ray sits under a tree and sings to himself, Isabella is horrified by the haunting tune. Reminded of her childhood crush before he was shipped off, she asks Ray how he knew the song. "Why did you give birth to me?" Ray asks, confirming that he is, in fact, her biological son. 

With so many horrifying things to have happened in this anime, it'll be hard to pick just one top quote. Vote up your favorite lines to let us know which ones were the best!

Well, I Should Get Going.

Ray: You... So you were planning to return from the start, huh? You said so yourself, right? That we'll stay alive together! But you were already planning to... 

Norman: Yeah. Sorry, I lied. I can't afford to make a mistake. Because I can't let anyone die. If I run away, the plan will deviate. If it deviates even a little, it'll be problematic. I don't even want a chance of losing. It's pointless to argue. I won't change my mind. I did what I can today. I'm leaving the rest to you. Make sure the escape succe-

Emma: Wait, Norman. 

*Norman turns to hug them* 

Norman: So warm... Thank you for everything. Because of you two, I had a good life. I had fun. I was happy. I was fortunate.

I'm A Feast That They've Been Waiting For.

"Isn't this the greatest? The perfect corer with the set shipment date will burn up. She won't be able to abandon me. I've been waiting for this day. I decided this a long time ago. Many, many years ago. It's a childish retaliation. You know what, Emma? I've never really been interested in studying or reading. But I endured it, and I worked hard to improve my value to the highest it could be. Twelve years. I'm a feast that they've been waiting for. I'm going to take that away from them tonight. Right before the harvest, they've been looking forward to. Don't think you can eat me. Don't think you can serve me. Food? Merchandise? I don't give a crap! I'm a human being! Serves them right!" 

- Ray
