    Looking for sci-fi anime?
    I'm going to write this fast, but hopefully it will be helpful. Shin Sekai Yori is one of my favorite anime series, though it is slow sometimes and the anime is different from the novel. It is story of the protagonist Saki and her friends as they grow up and discover information their society tries to hide from them.

    A Very Intelligent, Mature, and Thought-Provoking Anime
    This shows easily deserves 5 out of 5 stars for how deep the storyline really is: It's mind-blowing. The story becomes more and more interesting as the show progresses. The characters are generally well executed and Saki the main character has a bit of character development. The beginning of this anime is fairly slow but please stick with it. The animation is gorgeous enough for you to be ...

    Don't Be Fooled-- This is a mature Sci-Fi anime
    This is easily one of the best anime I've ever seen, and I've been watching anime for over 30 years. Short review: Stick with it for 6-8 episodes. You won't be sorry.

    Long Review:

    1. Plot: starts out a little slow, and I might downgrade half a star for it if I could. If this hadn't been recommended to me by a trustworthy source I probably wouldn't have stuck with it long enough for it to ...

    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 ...
