    This is just pure genius.
    Slice of life, scifi, monster rats?! This anime is just awesome. It takes a lil' extra thinking and stuff to understand what is going on but that is why it's so good! Glad it is continuing on. Each episode lays down a good foundation for the next, which is very nice. You don't see that alot in some of these anime nowadays. Then again you never see anime like this anyway. I LOVE IT.

    Sociedade muito interessante
    A historia desse anime é espetacular, cada detalhe do mundo foi bem pensado e me surpreende a cada episódio.
    Historia 8.5/10
    A historia começa bem calma e de repente há uma reviravolta e começa a ficar interessante e então começamos a entender esse mundo magnífico, a cada 2-3 episódios é revelado um outro detalhe surpreendente ou uma reviravolta chocante que nos mantém presos à historia e ...

  • Besides the first 2 episode....
    The anime is great. The first two episodes are slow and boring. However, after you hit episode 3-5 you understand the mystery that unfolds in this truly amazing anime. The fantasy world of monsters and demons all created from humans or evolution. The story of 5 children keep the story fresh and creative. The writers of this anime really done it this time.
    Environment of the Anime (EOA)
    The feel ...

    An Interesting Dystopia with strange social engineering ideas
    Shin Sekai Yori starts out as a slice of life series, but turns into an excellent dystopian sci-fi series.

    Based on a Japanese novel of the same name, Shin Sekai Yori investigates social engineering employed in a society so fragile that it can be destroyed by any of its members. As you might guess, great lengths must be taken to protect the many from the few. While I question the robustness of ...

    An intriguing and thought-provoking series
    I'm giving the series a 4/5 for the time being, even though that's a bit unfair since it is incomplete.

    Shin Sekai Yori is kind of hard to boil down into a back-of-the-box type description. It's near impossible to do so without some light spoilers. Shin Sekai Yori's set a thousand years in the post-apocalyptic future. A small percentage of humans developed psychokinetic powers around ...

    O melhor anime da temporada
    Extremamente viciante, cada vez que vc avança descobre mais coisas e mais coisa fica com vontade de descobrir, os acontecimento se desdobram de uma maneira que chega a doer o coração ter que esperar a proxima semana..os personagens são cativante principalmente protagonista ..unico porem é que é um anime dificil de se entender tem que está concentrado nele, mas isso que o torna tão fascinante.

  • Rollercoaster can only describe it...
    Simply said, this anime is a roller coaster. It goes so very slowly in the beginning because in the novel, they are depicted as kids. A bit of a fore warning there will be a bit of a spoiler. The original novel had one main, and two sequels. It depicted the three stages of the children's lives. Child, teen, and adult. So, if you're the type of person that wants the anime to explain itself ...

  • Amazing!! best new anime so far
    This anime is like crack, you'll re-watch episodes over and over again! Don't be fool by by cute happy looking kids on the cover, this is dark, mysterious, psychological, full of twist and turns, and just plain awesome. The animation is great and different. Give this a try and you'll see!

  • Interesting and Unique
    I like the approach it has on espers and the scientific background it has. To be honest its alot more sci-ency than fantasy.

    Its also dark and mature so I recommend people to read reviews before you watch it (this is for those that think its just gonna be another high school drama/romance). Well yeah, its not. And some scenes can be quite disturbing (and ill say no further)

    But I give it 4 ...

  • much darker than you would think, excellent!
    This is excellent, i am on ep4 and after the first ep i was hooked, this anime is much darker than the description and picture lead you to believe, watching this i got a sense reminscent of ergo proxy which i ironically hated. You gotta watch at least 1 episode, i am so happy i didn't pass this up.

    im also really enjoying:
    -blast of tempest
    -magi
    -and naruto of course
