    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 ...

  • Favorite anime of all time
    I've not writing a big review just know that this anime is better than any other I have seen and I have seen more that your average bear. It has a few time skips that put off a few people but for me it is needed to capture the maturity needed for this anime to finish with the mature content involved.

    An Anime Similar to "The Giver"
    Shin Sekai Yori is so thought provoking. Definitely one of the more mature and sophisticated anime out there with high level of written literature. The plot and storyline overall were very engaging and each episode would leave you the feeling that it was only 5 minutes long. As I was watching this anime, Shin Sekai Yori didn't feel like it was an Anime, due to the dominant genre of Romance, Comedy ...

    Thought provoking masterpiece
    I don't understand how anyone could watch this whole series and give it less than 5 stars. Don't let the description fool you, this is absolutely wonderful and not at all boring as the description makes it sound.

    Animation 4/5
    The animation is good. There is a slightly noticeable drop in the animation quality after a couple episodes but it never gets to the point where it's bad or even any ...

    Will go down in history
    So I finished Shin Sekai Yori and I must think on the series. So much to take in. The author did a great job of giving us information early on as to why civilization developed in that manner, and the atrocities the humans created in a caged society, and the demons they feared. It went on to show Yakomaru as a bad person, and as a watcher, I hated his guts. Time went on and at the end, We are told ...

  • A amazing story in the back ally of the internet
    Well drawn, entreating, and dark. the cover makes it seem like a typical love story, but it is dark and much more intricate with twist and turns that leave you feel like you watched for a hour but end up watching for five. Warning; not for a person looking for a light "read". lol

    Most overlooked title of 2013.
    I am extremely surprised I hadn't heard about this anime. Usually I don't go out of my way looking for anime, friends just recommend to me what's good that they've seen. But I was hungry for some anime so looked at a "top anime of 2013" list and picked this one out. I wasn't expecting much when I started watching "From the New World", but I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised.

    This ...
