    An Anime Similar to "The Giver"
    Shin Sekai Yori is so thought provoking. Definitely one of the more mature and sophisticated anime out there with high level of written literature. The plot and storyline overall were very engaging and each episode would leave you the feeling that it was only 5 minutes long. As I was watching this anime, Shin Sekai Yori didn't feel like it was an Anime, due to the dominant genre of Romance, Comedy ...

    Thought provoking masterpiece
    I don't understand how anyone could watch this whole series and give it less than 5 stars. Don't let the description fool you, this is absolutely wonderful and not at all boring as the description makes it sound.

    Animation 4/5
    The animation is good. There is a slightly noticeable drop in the animation quality after a couple episodes but it never gets to the point where it's bad or even any ...

    Will go down in history
    So I finished Shin Sekai Yori and I must think on the series. So much to take in. The author did a great job of giving us information early on as to why civilization developed in that manner, and the atrocities the humans created in a caged society, and the demons they feared. It went on to show Yakomaru as a bad person, and as a watcher, I hated his guts. Time went on and at the end, We are told ...

  • A amazing story in the back ally of the internet
    Well drawn, entreating, and dark. the cover makes it seem like a typical love story, but it is dark and much more intricate with twist and turns that leave you feel like you watched for a hour but end up watching for five. Warning; not for a person looking for a light "read". lol

    Most overlooked title of 2013.
    I am extremely surprised I hadn't heard about this anime. Usually I don't go out of my way looking for anime, friends just recommend to me what's good that they've seen. But I was hungry for some anime so looked at a "top anime of 2013" list and picked this one out. I wasn't expecting much when I started watching "From the New World", but I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised.

    This ...

    One of the Best Anime Ever Created
    Shin Sekai Yori is quite possibly the greatest anime I've ever seen. This show should be in discussion with Cowboy Bebop and Akira. I'm completely serious. The characters are well done, the story is heart-wrenching and beautiful. And the writing is absolutely superb.

    There was a drop in level of animation at a certain point, of which many noted, but if I'm being honest, I barely saw it. I would ...

    Oh my dear god, do you know what this?
    One of my favorite Animes of ALL TIME, I mean sure Anohana was amzaing was around the same level of this overall. But the dark, dramatic, tragic setting is just. I can't believe it, no offence but Crunchyroll most of the time you just have teenage high school things. But something like this comes up and I am just in shock. The time jump may be scary, you know you just get thrown into it but it's ...

  • Looking for sci-fi anime?
    I'm going to write this fast, but hopefully it will be helpful. Shin Sekai Yori is one of my favorite anime series, though it is slow sometimes and the anime is different from the novel. It is story of the protagonist Saki and her friends as they grow up and discover information their society tries to hide from them.

  • it's simply amazing.
    simply put, the series created a parallel world where each individual is strong enough to wipe out their own race, and the resulting civilization reflects so much humanity that the detailed analogy of human hearts, through both human and monster rats, deserves a simple WOW.
    there's so much i wanna say about this anime, but one main reflection i had after i watched the series is that, ...

  • Amazing, Thought-Provoking, Flawless (Almost)
    This anime is so wondrous and amazing, and at every turn in the plot you find yourself growing anxious for the fate of these characters.
    I love the themes of Shin Sekai Yori. This show is smart and clever, and it will make you think, which is a good thing! Totally enjoyable, totally awesome.
    I LOVED it!

    (The one thing that I can mark against it is that at some point in the middle of the show, ...
