Yes, Shun didn't have *the biggest impact* on Saki's life like you said. She had a cute crush on him, nothing never came out of it, he died and that's it.

Another upshot, Im glad mamoru died. That boring, useless, pussy ass character (Shinji Ikari Mk2). Im surprised he even worked up the courage to have sex with Maria, I expect his own body scares him, let alone a girls

So between them running away and the Monster Rats providing some "fake" bones, there must have been at least 9 month. Or does evolution speed up also this? .. the story is a bit inconsistant here...

And in the end the poor girl (well, boy in the manga) is killed by the shame of killing a fellow monster rat... after wiping out the whole Giant Hornets Army.. oh well..

Well It was never specifically said that she killed the army, more than she stopped the army from attacking back and broke their weapons. Leaving them to be killed by the other army, remember what kiroumaru said, his troops fought with their hands to protect him, if she had attacked they wouldnt have been able to fight back at all.

And Im pretty sure we worked out the time period and it did just about fit, but it was pretty tight

Just finished the series. I haven't felt this empty (good) from an anime in a long time.

So now that Shin Sekai Yori has won as the Best Anime of 2012 by popular vote here on CR, I figured I'd bump this thread with a question: Who of the original six members of Group 7 (besides Saki) was your favorite character?

Some thoughts (with spoilers, since I've finished the series):

I'm kind of torn between Reiko (because I feel really bad for her) and Shun (because he was a badass). But Maria was also a really great person, and Satoru was a decent guy too - he kind of reminds me of Taichi from Chihayafuru.

Mamoru was pretty well overshadowed, but he had a distinct character too. And.....


I really liked Satoru too. Can see why he reminds of Taichi too.

About your last line. Was thinking maybe, in case this "bump" brings in those who haven't seen or never finished the series, it would be a kind gesture to add a spoiler tag since that's a major thing.

Fair point. Added tags.

Not sure what means.

Edit:

I think I'll go with my gut and surprise myself by voting for Maria.

Shin Sekai Yori won Best Anime of 2012 by popular vote? That's a major shocker to me. I wasn't following that thread at all, but I would have never expected what I considered to be one of the more unpopular series of 2012 to be considered best. Not that I'm complaining! It's one of my favorite animes ever at this point. Maybe this will get some more discussions rolling, I've been dying to talk more about this show.

I've always had a huge soft spot for Mamoru, though I don't think he got nearly the development I would have liked in the anime. I like how he's a believable frightened kid, and his crush on Maria was just adorable to me. Ashame things turned out so poorly for him, I'm pretty sure he got the worst of most of the characters. Reiko, too, though she barely got any time to shine at all.

Shun too, episode 10...

Always like to discuss this show/novel if there are new questions to be asked.
