    An Anime truly worth watching
    When this anime first arrived on crunchy roll i didn't know what to expect, after watching the first 3 episodes it became clear to me this anime had alot to offer. The mystery the topics they cover, the character development is something to behold. I found myself wanting more every time the credits rolled, this anime needs to be experienced start to finish. You wont be disappointed.

    Adventure, drama and surprise in every episode
    This anime is about how a group of high school friends find themselves involved in uncovering disturbing secret information about the society they live in. There is a great deal of drama and mysteries develop and are slowly solved, but not without tragedy and loss. I liked the pacing and story line; at first things seem quite bizarre but as the episodes wear on, explanations begin to emerge for ...

    One of my favorites!
    I think this is one of the better animes that I've seen in a long time, I even resorted to re-watching it. Just watching the first couple episodes doesn't give it justice, you have to finish the series

    An animé about power and ethics
    This animé was both exciting and made you think. I can highly recommend this series to all viewers 15 years and older. In some cases even younger, although there is a lot of violence and blood.

    Shin Sekai Yori will make you think about ethics and what is acceptable to do for the greater good.

    A strange perspective
    From the new world is one of those series which requires you to watch until the end to grasp the extent of the plot. On an artistic level, it stands fairly well rounded, and while not particularly breathtaking, it conveys the story well. It has a great deal more depth of plot than the cover might indicate and is certainly not a title I would recommend for the younger viewers.

    Themes ...

    Eerie and Unexpected
    TL;DR: Creepy, be ready for some twists. Dark and mature themes. Inconsistency with the art style, but can usually be ignored.

    Did you watch the first episode and go "meh"? Watch the second episode and said "ehhh..."? Yeah, me, too. For whatever reason, probably my insatiable curiosity, I stuck with it.
    Shin Sekai Yori has a subtle seductive quality: you don't realize that you've been ...

    Really incredible anime! refreshingly different
    This is one of the most amazing series I've watched in a long time, it's such a shame that some people gave up on it after the first few episodes. Stick with it, it gets so good! It's refreshingly unique and doesn't simply go with cliches. It's very dark and with many interesting turns, it wasn't at all what I expected. The ending was incredible and left me with chills, I would seriously recommend ...

    misclassified, mislabeled, and extremely deep.
    a dark and philosophical journey that pulls no punches and is filled with complex three-dimensional characters. No 'simple' villains, even in the most obvious places, and decisions that you root for -at the time- often come back to haunt you as their realistic aftershocks return.

    Most anime that begins with a child protagonist takes the stand that those children are the wisest people in the ...

    Absolutely Amazing!!
    Most anime's I watch I go to the 15 minute mark on the first episode and say that's that or I'll watch to the end and be like that was okay. This one was neither. This one I watched to the end, re-watched it, pooped my pants twice, and said this is the best anime ever. The main reason for that is the amazing character progression as it spreads over a span of multiple years instead of the anime ...

    A little part of me died.
    Many animes draw you in with superb action and plot, but after it is over you just pick up another anime to watch. This anime make me think profoundly about many things. Shin sekai yori was an depressing anime because it presents a terribly sad story in a cheerful way. I was hurt from watching this anime, and I guess a part of my innocence died as a result.

    Nonetheless, a great anime but not ...
