    This show has so much swag
    You watch this right now, God damn it. The animation and story are amazing, and the ending doesn't even make me buttmad like most anime does. The characters are well developed and I can't even think of a single plot hole that wasn't addressed later on. Watch it.

    From the New World concentrates on psychological and sociological themes to tell a dark story that doesn't show its true colors until the very end.
    This fantasy-horror-dark-mystery-drama-action series was one of the best series of Fall 2012-to-Spring 2013 (probably second behind Psycho-Pass). This has been one of the best work which I have seen from A-1 Pictures. I want to point out the immense amount of detail that was put into the animation sequences and artistic material. The animation for the second ending sequence its simply ...

    Shows like this are why I watch anime.
    This was anime of the year for me - nothing else has come close in comparison. Like other reviewers, I must ask that one not be dissuaded by the description and cover art, which could give the impression of a more immature show - This could not be further from the truth! This anime is a mature, thought provoking, and philosophical, set in a world of grey morality.

    The pacing is typically ...

    Way more than I ever thought I would imagine!!
    When I first started watching this anime, I wasn't sure if I would like it or not. It seemed kind of similar to others I had seen--they live in a future world, have telekinetic powers, etc.--but it turned out to be so much more than that.

    It is a dark, mature anime with an amazing storyline. The world and culture which the characters live in is so multifaceted that it is easy to imagine it ...

    This Anime Is Worth Watching ^_^
    The story, the characters, and the action in this anime is amazing. This anime is really worth your time. It seems like a child anime from the cover but inside it's mature, bloody, and action packed. I recommend this show to the people who likes a good kick ass blood scenes. I really hope there is a second season.

  • Absolutely Amazing Series!
    Nothing happens in this story without a reason. It's a shock to the very center of human morality and in this story as with real life there really is no true villain just different perspectives.

    Please be patient as it starts off slow, but remember every event no matter how small serves a purpose.

  • An anime worth the watch.
    I have to say that From the New World is really amazing, I would highly recommend it. The story starts a bit slow but as time progresses the plot itself gets more interesting, at the end of each episode it leaves you wanting for more.

  • Very intriguing, intense, mature story.
    The writers created a very intriguing story with excellent character developments. Events and situations in this anime make you consider the psychological aspects of the unique world that you submerse yourself in.
    I didn't expect the intensity of this series. But then, I didn't expect a lot of things that have happened so far.

    SPOILER: Suggested Audience:

    I wouldn't suggest this to a ...

    Anime of the Year!!!
    A timeless story, from another world, a struggle of power, fear, love, justice, and pride. The anime starts out slowly, introducing small things first but important to the story, then it advances to rather fast paced and sometimes a little bit rushed (may confuse the audience sometimes) because of time skip, etc, but the plot is completely covered thorough the whole story. if you didn't understand ...

    Watch this show everyone
    This show is one of the best shows I have ever seen. It’s a little slow in the beginning but after episode 8 it gets crazy good. This story is not for kids if you’re mature enough to get invested in a great and one of the best ending story give this a shot. The beginning is hard to understand but don’t worry it will all make sense. So watch it!
