    ABSOLUTE MASTERPIECE
    I began watching this anime literally three days ago and now all I do is fangirl about it. This is a masterpiece. It's my new favorite, and here's why:

    * The characters. You get attached to all of them right from the start.
    * The plot. The beginning started a bit slow, but the plot is intriguing and awesome and it's going to make you want to binge on this show (but don't because when it's over ...

    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 ...

    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 ...

    A defining anime of 2012-13
    What I say above is my own opinion. So, what I will say first, is to be indifferent to this 'review'. You'll only enjoy this if you walk in as I did, with no expectations of anything mind-blowing (or just plain bad). Be optimistic.

    I will not give many details; I am new to anime in general. A real review can be found elsewhere. But you want impressions, yes? It's good.

    Consider this:
    Shin ...

    Under Rated Anime Show
    A masterpiece plot where everything ties together with stunning twists even at the end! Haven't seen a story so good in ages that made me off my seat. I promise that this show is worth every second, just the first 4 ep are a tad bit slow and there are some scenes for mature audience. Though I think this could be under rated because SAO came out the same time area.. But this show has become my top ...

    Awesome anime and needs more people to view it.
    I friggen loved this anime. Yes its very confusing but overall it was awesome. This anime kinda of made me despise humans.
    *SPOILERS*
    In the end since Satoru was playing with the cats we can infer that they are still killing kids. And when they showed that Saki was pregnant that statement rolls into place. How she wonders that if their kid will grow up ok. I like how it had 25 episodes. But I ...

    Great Sci Fi anime, would recommend
    In my opinion this anime is a science fiction masterpiece. Loosely based on the classic book "A Canticle for Leibowitz," except with a society of psychics. It's not the most action packed anime but I found it to be extremely engaging. The series starts out very slowly for it follows these 5 kids just being kids. But even though everything seems happy go lucky you can feel that the world these kids ...

    Enter a New World with Gripping Tales
    This anime has to be one of the best I have seen. THIS IS NOT SOMETHING YOU WATCH WITH CHILDREN. Also, if you can't accept new ideas and fully dive into their world you shouldn't watch. It was a theme of comments that I saw about this anime and the show is literally called From the NEW WORLD.

    The story is really interesting. You must pay attention from the very beginning and everything ...

    a flipping original that needs be a classic! (why this so underrated?)
    seriously i have never been so surprised by the plot of anything as i was this show. i was also challenged by the newness of the aspects of the world this show creates. at first i mistook the newness for strangeness but the more comfortable i became with how original this series really was i realized that this show is just a genuine, one of a kind, masterpiece. i would not say it became my ...

    Very Disturbing, Quite Unforgettable
    From the first episode, this anime pulled me in but I actually had to stop watching it (for about a month) after a couple of episodes because I was so disturbed and scared (yes, scared). But I know that once the feeling goes away and I get over the dread, I will watch the succeeding episodes, and I did. This is the first anime to do that to me. It is very psychological and inspires both dread and ...
