    Great Sci Fi anime, would recommend
    In my opinion this anime is a science fiction masterpiece. Loosely based on the classic book "A Canticle for Leibowitz," except with a society of psychics. It's not the most action packed anime but I found it to be extremely engaging. The series starts out very slowly for it follows these 5 kids just being kids. But even though everything seems happy go lucky you can feel that the world these kids ...

    love the feeling and thought put into this show.
    the picture is very misleading, and this show is in fact rather dark and intellectual. great show besides the marketing the picture gives its on my top ten anime list.

    A Powerful Masterpiece
    First off let me say that it has been ages since a anime has truly captivated me in such a way. Mentally and emotionally I was immersed in this story, from beginning to end. The characters were well written and the art was strikingly beautiful. It was tragic yet heartwarming at the same time. No words could describe the feelings I have for this anime properly. If you haven't watched it, do ...

    Enter a New World with Gripping Tales
    This anime has to be one of the best I have seen. THIS IS NOT SOMETHING YOU WATCH WITH CHILDREN. Also, if you can't accept new ideas and fully dive into their world you shouldn't watch. It was a theme of comments that I saw about this anime and the show is literally called From the NEW WORLD.

    The story is really interesting. You must pay attention from the very beginning and everything ...

    a flipping original that needs be a classic! (why this so underrated?)
    seriously i have never been so surprised by the plot of anything as i was this show. i was also challenged by the newness of the aspects of the world this show creates. at first i mistook the newness for strangeness but the more comfortable i became with how original this series really was i realized that this show is just a genuine, one of a kind, masterpiece. i would not say it became my ...

  • Great show so far! Surprisingly dark, but thankfully not to an extreme.
    I found this anime after reading the reviews of someone who had similar tastes in shows. It has quickly become one of my favorites. The story is very confusing at first but you slowly start to make sense of things as the main characters do, so don't get frustrated. I usually lean towards bubbly anime as opposed to serious and dark, but the story of these kids and the crazy "magic" (PK) filled ...

    Amazingly powerful, no other show like it, a MUST SEE!
    One of the most original and amazing animes I've ever watched. This show is full of intense feelings, brilliant story telling, and stunning visuals. Anyone who is looking for a show like no other, that will really make you have deep emotional reactions and connections to its characters, it is a must watch.

    But warning, don't expect it to be happy go lucky. This is NOT a feel good anime. Which ...

    Unsettling and superb
    A bunch of 12 year olds with superpowers going to school? Sounds like some pretty cliched stuff, doesn't it? I'm sorry I put off watching it for so long. I'm someone who doesn't watch very much anime at all. I got a crunchyroll subscription to watch Attack on Titan and figured I'd ask for some recommendations on what to watch while I have it. This is one that kept popping up, and I delayed ...

    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 ...
