    One Of The Season's Best
    You're missing out if you don't watch this series. It's a very good story, with very good characters and an exquisite ending. If you want something that breaks the shallow moe direction that's gripping anime and you want something with depth, action, and story, then you want to watch this series.

    Brilliant in every sense of the word
    Truly one of this year's best, Shin Sekai Yori grabs you the by expectations from the very beginning and doesn't let up until you're past the final credits; it is, in my opinion, one of only a few series that succeeds at matching the depth of its resolution to the ambitious set up we're given at the start.

    Aesthetically its gorgeous. The soundtrack does its job with subtle but remarkable ...

    One of the Best Shows Ever. Seriously.
    This anime is certainly one of the best I've ever seen, and I would (and do) recommend it to anyone. The story is incredibly clever and thought-provoking, and each episode left me thinking not only about what had happened in the show, but about the greater implications of such possibilities. I chose to watch the show based on some cool-looking stills I'd seen on the internet, and a brief ...

    Must Watch. A beautiful masterpiece.
    I will not get all technical and complicated. I usually don't bother writing reviews. This show goes beyond Anime itself. Artistic, beautiful, unique. So much happens that one could not even try to guess while they are watching. I only wish there were more out there like it.

    Excellent commentary on humanity
    It is rare that I write a review, but this one warrents one. This anime is aimed at adults and educated people. If you are looking for harem or teen issues, this is not that kind of show Without spoiling it, just give it a try for three episodes. If you are not totally hooked, then you are not into these types of shows. But if you like comments on how humans progress through the ages, then ...

    An unexpected masterpiece.
    Many people may be turned off by the Yaoi in a couple episodes, but if you watch it all the way through you would find a rich, engaging and unforgettable anime. The art and animation in this show is beautiful and works well with the theme, the plot is thought provoking, and it's characters each have unique traits that make them stand out. It may seem like a generic school drama at first glance; ...

    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 ...

    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.

    Make no mistakes, this is no romance, but a psychological thriller.
    Like many others have written, I too was put off by the cover and description, and even the first couple minutes of the anime. Boy was I wrong. Four episodes in and you can see the seeds of darkness as they first begin to grow, and once you've progressed to the current point of the anime (ep 19), those seeds have fully grown. The anime has taken on a terrifyingly dark atmosphere.
