    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 ...

  • BEST WORK EVER! Amazing
    WORTH IT! ALL OF IT! Well, even though the first episodes were kinda a drag to watch...everything beyond it is just above a normal human mind. I really love the psychological profiles generated for each of the characters. Makes them very special in each of their own way. They all stay memorable throughout the whole serie

    Shin Sekai Yori - Masterpiece
    This anime took my breath away with every episode. Each 24-minute segment flew by, and left you wanting more. It is a puzzle story, that only gives you enough pieces as it wants until it suddenly fills in the big picture for you. The characters are charming, and the female protagonist is extremely likable, being strong-willed without the need for overly-large breasts. The music is absolutely ...

  • Amazingly Different!
    When I first say this promotional poster for this anime show I didn't know what it was all going to be about besides a group of kids but when I watched it I totally didn't expect any of what happened to happen.This series is amazing. A lot of action, sad parts, and cute parts. It comes close to my favorite level of Higurashi which is high up on my anime favorite list.

    DO NOT LET THE COVER FOOL YOU.
    Ok I'll be honest, the cover for this is quite a bit misleading, of course until I started watching the show and understood how deep and relevant it is towards the show itself. (Which i must say is brilliantly executed)

    I say this because this is not an anime for everyone.

    With that being said heres a quick list of what it is not:

    A shounen
    A slice of life
    A show about ...
