    I really don't know .
    I've seen the first 15 minutes or so from the first episode and I'm afraid I won't be able to get into it like I want to , it seems really interesting and it has a good plot to it . Maybe it's the whole 12 year olds thing . I have to admit this advertisement really decieved me . I though it was going to be a happy anime series . Now I don't descriminate against any anime , but since you guys say ...

    Couldn't recommend this any higher...
    I was originally skeptical of it before I started watching, mainly due to the poster. In the beginning of the show it starts off as it's aimed at a younger audience, but I carried on. As you carry on the series (past 3) how wrong was I. This on going series is mind blowing.
    If you've read the novel then you're gonna notice a few changes, but nevertheless, it's incredible.

  • This is definitely one the tops best shows I have seen on crunchyroll
    This is my first review on this website and I just had to write one for this show. It is really good. However the marketing side doesn't really reflect what the show is truly about. If you like watching magical and suspense show then this is a fantastic choice. The whole show has a really nice story pace and plot that just keeps you on the edge of your seat. I gave it full marks for an unique, ...

    Hmmm....not interested
    I am 36 yrs old and prefer the mature anime. This one is just not cutting it with me. I was pulled in from the start and watched up until they became adults.Now that they are grown I'm just not into it. It's more of a power struggle between mole nations are something. Maybe it's were I haven't watched the last couple episodes. I don't feel progress. I'll come back to it if I get really bored.

  • Beautiful , Stunning, Underscored
    Shin sekai yori is a unique mixture of animes, abit slow moving. Personally in my opinion, Is only for insightful people. Slow scenes reveal secrets that somebody who doesn't have the intelligence power like insightful people do, Will be unable to fully understand the anime. Every scene- From start to near finish, Connects to eachother in a web of emotion. This underscored-anime needs to be seen ...

  • Dark Dystopian ethical drama
    What if we gave human beings huge magical powers -- any chance they'd screw it up?

    Uh ... YEAH!! - Big Time. In order to survive, society must adjust over 1,000 years of history into new forms and practices. -- Okay, that about covers the first 2 minutes of the series.

    Throw in a certain side effect that reaches a cusp at the time of this series, you have a nice ethical drama around ...

    Watch this show everyone
    This show is one of the best shows I have ever seen. It’s a little slow in the beginning but after episode 8 it gets crazy good. This story is not for kids if you’re mature enough to get invested in a great and one of the best ending story give this a shot. The beginning is hard to understand but don’t worry it will all make sense. So watch it!

    Anime of the Year!!!
    A timeless story, from another world, a struggle of power, fear, love, justice, and pride. The anime starts out slowly, introducing small things first but important to the story, then it advances to rather fast paced and sometimes a little bit rushed (may confuse the audience sometimes) because of time skip, etc, but the plot is completely covered thorough the whole story. if you didn't understand ...

  • Very intriguing, intense, mature story.
    The writers created a very intriguing story with excellent character developments. Events and situations in this anime make you consider the psychological aspects of the unique world that you submerse yourself in.
    I didn't expect the intensity of this series. But then, I didn't expect a lot of things that have happened so far.

    SPOILER: Suggested Audience:

    I wouldn't suggest this to a ...

  • An anime worth the watch.
    I have to say that From the New World is really amazing, I would highly recommend it. The story starts a bit slow but as time progresses the plot itself gets more interesting, at the end of each episode it leaves you wanting for more.
