  • An interesting watch.
    This is by far one of the most attention grabbing anime's I have watched so far. The plot thickens with each episode as you watch the five young friends grow and bond. There is a little fan service for those who are interested in that kind of thing, and there is romance. All in all, I give it a 5/5 due it it's unique approach at life, love, adventure, and danger.

    Give it a try, but it's not for everyone.
    This anime made me depressed. Too many young deaths. It's just not my cup of tea with the many failed relationships, confusingness, and the kids are highly mature for their ages. Also I really disliked Shun's fate and the oppressive utopian theme is trite. Darn ethic committees and rules. Although it does have excellent artwork and the quiet setting fits the telling of the story in a minimalistic ...

    Shin Sekai Yori Review
    It's one of the best shows this season. Honestly, it's confusing. I'm on, I think, the 11th episode, and I can't figure out the plot. That's why I love it.
    The artwork is really good, and I like the character designs. The music gives it a suspenseful feel, which adds a lot of impact on the show.
    It's a series that from the start, will catch your attention. Watch it!!! <3

    hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
    i saw this coming but i'm not happy with the way its following through
    its very confusing in the beginning but i kinda got what was going on
    its about these kids trying to live in this society, normally
    but regardless of how good the adults try to make living, life always steps in and makes challenges. actions and reactions that is the whole plot
    if its good or not remains to be seen

  • The Twists! The Turns!
    This anime is a one-of-a-kind. It's not just because of the amazing visuals; not just because of the intriguing storyline; not just because of the unique world; but because of all three plus the fact there really is no other anime set up like this one.
    I must admit it is slow to start, but once you start going, you begin to understand more of the world. The more you understand it, the more ...

    Misterious, dramatic and smart
    It really did surprise me! I wasn't expecting such a misterious and smart drama. Five teenagers discovering the history behind their own society while trying to explain the void within their hearts and thoughts.

    A complex treat for discerning minds
    This show is fantastic. On the surface, it is a story of a society that is struggling with mankind's next step in evolution. Told through the perspective of several children who are growing up in this world, the underlying themes are nevertheless quite challenging for even mature viewers. The show repeatedly tackles oppression, sacrifice, sexual exploration (nothing graphic), and man's ...

  • I'm So Confused, Yet So Excited!
    This show is possibly one of the most confusing shows I've seen to date, with only a few exceptions. Time seems to jump sporadically, and there's a lot to take in. However, despite how frustrated I get from my frustration, I can't take my eyes away!

    A poorly advertised mature anime
    Very very mild spoilers ahead.

    The first thing I would like to say is that this anime really does not market itself well, from the image of 5 cutesy looking kids in school uniforms to the description absolutely nothing stands out as interesting or deserving of your time. Even worse, the audience who would most enjoy this (mature teenagers/adults) could even be put off by the fact its classed as ...
