  • jaw-dropping amazing
    This is probably one of the underrated shows that I wish more people would acknowledge. The plot is definitely 1 of a kind and, unlike other shows, by the end you kind of question what was truly right or wrong. My only problems were that the beginning took a while to roll in and episode 7 (or 8? I forget) was quite surprising and some of the stuff was somewhat unnecessary. I've heard that it makes ...

    GREAT! I didn't expect that at all
    I wasn't sure what to expect with this. The summary made it sound like it was about the usual friendship teenage comedy/romance stuff, but it wasn't. THANK GOD it wasn't. It was dark, mature, and basically about the progression of humans and the means we take to ensure our survival.
    Listen, I maranthanoed the crap out of this anime (thank the lord for summer vacation). It's confusing in the ...

    An amazing story that needs to be witnessed lol
    Oh man, I've been picking out some good shows recently, this is on top of the hill out of those other great shows I've recently watched. From the New World has an amazing story that takes you 1000 years in the future, its not so futuristic though, its more like going back in time 1000 years, and then adding psychic powers lol. You need to give this anime a chance, I feel it deserved a seat amongst ...

    Absolutely worth it! Must see!
    If I write too much I am afraid this will not be read. So, without too much, this is one of the best series' ever. The plot is impeccable, the characters dynamic, and even the villains make you question your sense of morals. Intellectually captivating yet very visceral. So watch it already.

    This show is a masterpiece
    This is one of the greatest anime ever created in my opinion. It is a dark, philosophical work reflecting on difficult ethical dilemmas, set in a fascinating and quite original post-apocalyptic world. The animation style changes now and again which I found a little jarring, but the actual quality of that animation is very high. I currently put it at number two in my list of favourite anime, after ...

    ABSOLUTE MASTERPIECE
    I began watching this anime literally three days ago and now all I do is fangirl about it. This is a masterpiece. It's my new favorite, and here's why:

    * The characters. You get attached to all of them right from the start.
    * The plot. The beginning started a bit slow, but the plot is intriguing and awesome and it's going to make you want to binge on this show (but don't because when it's over ...

  • One of the best anime currently available on crunchyroll
    Perhaps the best anime on crunchyroll!

    Music: 9/10
    Characters: 8/10
    Story/Plot: 10/10
    Animation: 8/10
    Enjoyment: 10/10

    I don't think I've ever watched a show that climbed all the way to the top without any letdowns like this. Many... er most shows that go for this level of intensity, suspense and plot always peak out before the ending. Often, before the ending you reach the point where ...

    Great Show, Definitely overlooked
    This is by no means a standard review, just putting the word out there that you don't know what you're missing out on by skimping on this anime. It's deconstruction of underlying societal themes in a captivating and dark sense merits this show as one worth seeing, not to mention the awesome artwork, especially later in the series. It's one of those shows that really takes getting into the 4th or ...

    I feel like I'm in the definite minority
    I always felt lost intill about episode 10. I'm not sure why I didn't really understand a lot of what was happening. I asked people about it and everyone always said I was stupid for not really understanding it. Maybe I just thought there was more meaning then there actually was beyond what they were telling us. But there really isn't. Little disappointed with the ending I was hoping to see Maria ...
