    Fantastic and genuinely unique.
    An excellent, unusually deep anime that details a human society struggling with it's own evolution, touching on questions on how far is it okay to go to preserve a society and a people's safety, sexual exploration, and exploitation of other cultures. It goes through two or three major changes in tone throughout it's duration, usually as it's protagonists age. It even pulls the unusual trick of ...

    You will love it! I guarantee
    It isn't often that an anime captivates me as much as this one has. I'm sick of animes that have no background and are rather flat in terms of plot development. It was amazing to see the amount of detail that went into this show and I absolutely love it. It's rather tragic though, but that's what kept me interested.

    This Anime Died For Our Sins
    I feell ike I'm the only person who has ever seen this. This is the anime we need but didn't deserve.

    It's an anime that is mature, human, and intriguing. The characters are all multi-dimensional and we see them develop over the course of their lives. Every character acts out of their own realistic motivations and it's never clear who is really in the right.

    This show is a dystopian show, ...

    My Desire for a Thoughtful Anime has been met.
    Once I start watching a series, I make it a point to finish every episode. This can often be difficult when the ending is predictable, or the creator thinks the viewer is so dumb that they have to spell out every little action.

    Shin Sekai Yori does the opposite. It beats you over the head for a few episodes with information. Do not be dissuaded from this. Shin Sekai Yori does a great job ...

    From the New World - Amazing
    This story has so much meaning behind every little thing. There is so much darkness and sadness in each episode, yet you feel so much hope for each character. I love how much they grow and change through out the series. This is a mind blowing show and I recommend it for older individuals who can appreciate the deeper meanings. Its a story that will stick with you.

    Absolutely Stunning Show
    While it can be rather slow at times, especially in the beginning, this is one of the best-written shows I have ever seen. Everything ties together, and despite the emotional moments you have felt throughout the series, it feels realistic and complete. The finale tied everything together extremely well, and I'm tempted to re-watch it to pick up on the things I missed the first time ...

    Sneakily Clever !!!!!
    An anime that takes less credits than it actually deserves, percieved by many as sci-fi/ romance or as speculative/social science fiction. While the later is scratching the surface the first description is simply an insult to what it actually is.

    A story that challenges morality and justice as it is commonly percieved. The symbolism is very strong and while the plot directly challenges the ...

    Loved the feel of it
    This show had just about everything I enjoy in an anime. The world building, character development, and artwork all worked very well together. Though the artwork seemed to taper off a few episodes in (it started off absolutely incredible imo, loved the style), but overall I continued watching because the plot itself was good.

    If I had to describe this series in one word...
    This is the first time I've written a review on here and its one the few times I've even thought of doing it. It takes many words to describe this show but if I had to pick one then i'd go with "mature". If you want a series description then read the "About this show" on crunchy roll. If you want a summary, don't. You only need to make the decision of whether or not you go on this journey. If you ...
