  • Complex interesting anime
    I did not know what to expect going into this but Shin Kedai Yori exceed whatever expectations I might have had. It is one of the better Anime I have had the pleasure of watching. Complex ideas and though. Open ended events that leave room for analysis and interpretation. A hearty recommendation.

    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 ...

  • Amazingly Written Masterpiece!
    This is a most watch! I've seen a lot of different kinds of anime, from shoujo to the darkest gory animes and there's not a lot of anime that keep you intrigue and wanting more like this one does. During the entire series it takes you moments after the episode is done to think and realize what's really going on. Character developing is amazing! Scenary superb, and background music just ...

  • A strong adaptation for a good novel
    I watched this show first when it was airing and again recently (2015). I have to say that both then and now it is one of my favorite anime of the past 10 years.

    The main strength of the anime lies in the focus which is placed on plot and character development. Nearly everything that occurs in the anime helps further the plot, characters, or setting - no unnecessary fan service, no unnecessary ...

  • Shinsekai yori-masterpiece
    Scores seem a little devalued on CR what with most shows getting 4 or 5 stars but trust me when I say this show deserves at least 50 stars compared to most other shows on this site.

    I'm assuming you know the basic plot but it is somewhat misleading. This is NOT some show about superpowered kids its a dark, dystopian and harsh tale of human nature, death and control. There are more interesting ...

  • A gem disguised as something else
    I was not sure what to expect going into this, I had found this title from some other online anime reviewers and all they gave about it was it is not what it appears to be. From the onset one would think this to be a happy coming of age tale of school-goers and stuff, but right out on the beginning this show throws you a curve ball.

    From the New World, gives us some rich history to help piece ...

  • Both Original and Interesting
    Awesome anime in my opinion. I like how they throw in a little yuri and yaoi romance in addition to straight romance. Things get CRAZY. Their is alot of action. I like the fantasy aspect of this as well. One of my favorite parts of this anime is how they walk you through the children lives. GREAT ANIME, its so interesting and extremely original.

  • One of my recent favorites
    I'll keep the review short, sweet and simple. The story was decently complex without being the type that you have to watch a few times to understand what's going on. Enough intrigue to keep you guessing, but not so much that you're scratching your head. Mostly dialogue driven, so most action junkies may not fully appreciate it, but despite being a bit of an action junkie myself, I found myself ...

    Psychic Kids + Overbearing Future Feudal Society + Naked Mole Rats
    Unique Concept + Character and World Development + Great Visuals + Creepy Creepy Creepy

    If it feels like it's starting out as a standard 'kids go to weird school to learn psychic abilities', it grows out into sooooo much more, it gets epic in scale, immensely sad and also horribly creepy. Whatever your reservations, you ...

    Truly a great anime.
    This anime is one of the best anime or show in general I have ever watched. The plot development, character development, setting, background, animation, etc. were all top notch. The maturity of the subjects in this show are thought provoking and leave you thinking long after you finished watching an episode. The tragedies that occur, I am not ashamed to admit, made me cry. I do not know why this ...
