    Fantastic Anime All Around
    This anime is incredibly impressive. I have never watched an anime that ended as well as this one does, in that it doesn't leave anything hanging in the story while leaving enough to the imagination to keep it interesting. It lived up to my expectations completely. I honestly can't come up with something about it that I don't like. It draws you in right away, uses great foreshadowing and hinting ...

    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.

    Deep, Dark and slow, but worth the effort.
    From The New World asks the question: how much would you sacrifice for the security of yourself, your family, your friends, and ultimately for your way of life. It sets that question in a far-future world, and provides a context that make answering that question extremely difficult, so we have no choice but to follow along with the characters and wonder. This series is written very tightly; ...

    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 ...

  • Once it gets going it doesn't stop!
    This is my first and only review, so please be patient with me, Shin Sekai Yori is an exception for me.

    Just as most viewers, I feel this anime was very poorly advertised. It also had some very prominent pacing issues in the early episodes, but once you get past those things... wow. Every single episode ended too soon, leaving the viewer wanting more... not just wanting it, needing it. ...

    This is One of the Best Anime I Have Ever Seen
    Even if it dose not market itself well, I am still surprised people are not talking about this. It ended really well, and never felt like something I have seen before. This story has a lot of depth, told through deep characters. It was dark, poetic, and addicting. The kids are not cute, they seem like real people, responding to a horrible world.

    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.

    Great deep story with surprisingly violent tendencies
    I was very pleasantly surprised by this show. It is set in the future where a remnant of humanity all possess psychokinetic powers. The society has dark secrets that eventually come back to bite them. The show follows the lives of Group 1 from youngsters to adulthood and all the difficulties that befall them. It is well worth watching,

    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 ...
