  • A dark tale of the future
    Thank You Randomizer. Oh look at the title page, look its cutsey, must be slice of life. No. this is one of the most nuanced stories of a post apocalyptic future I have seen. Period. Dig into it a bit before you give up on this one. Watch through to at least the river trip. Theres a lot going on here. Dont do the normal skip past to the title shot, there isnt one and the intros add a lot to the ...

  • wow what a surprise!
    I watched this anime at a club in my school and didn't really know what I was getting into as I had never heard of it before. I was really surprised at how great this anime actually was. It's an anime that really makes you think and I found that refreshing. It is very dark so be warned if you do not like those kinds of anime, but I find that the darker tone of this anime made it very powerful. ...

    Loved the feel of it
    This show had just about everything I enjoy in an anime. The world building, character development, and artwork all worked very well together. Though the artwork seemed to taper off a few episodes in (it started off absolutely incredible imo, loved the style), but overall I continued watching because the plot itself was good.

  • I was skeptical, but glad I gave it a go!
    I will judge an anime by its cover. I at least gave the synopsis a read and thought 'what the hell' I will give it a try. I must say the synopsis does not give a good glimpse of what the anime is. It's a journey of childhood to adult hood dealing with issues that make your morals shake.

  • Yes yes yes yes yes yes
    Loved this anime more than any of the ones I watched this year.
    The ending was perfect and it had depth and a great storyline. I loved the animation at times, the backgrounds were really stunning.
    I'm going to have to get my hands on the books now because I seriously need more.

  • 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 ...
