The Promised Land (約束の地, Yakusoku no Chi) is an alternative dimensional world that has a spiritual link with the Earth realm.
Description & Characteristics
The Promised Land is a place where the items lost in the human world gain physical form. As memories are a vital need in the Promised Land, objects that lose their name would ultimately lose themselves and fade into nothingness. From the nothingness, these lost objects turn into ghostly specters called Nanashi that are driven by a desire for a name to become complete beings again. Luckily, once an object is found in the real world, the resident is able to spiritually return to its owner.
Notes & Trivia
- The Promised Land is similar to the Wasteland from Epic Mickey or The Island of Misfit Toys from Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer, as all three places are realms where forgotten things reside and remain there until they are remembered or found and made useful again.
