    Weak and Frustrating
    Shin Sekai Yori. SPOILER ALERT.SPOILER ALERT.SPOILER ALERT.SPOILER ALERT.

    Full of plot holes, weak character development and poor story line. Also, the writer adds love and romance only to mess with the viewers. All the characters have weak relationships with each other and some of them have absolutely no reason to be with each other, only to try to provoke emotion from the viewers. In fact, ...

    'Sobre o novo mundo"

    "Eu não sei com que armas se lutará a Terceira Guerra Mundial, mas a Quarta será com paus e pedras". Albert Einstein

    - quase isso. "Shin Sekai Yori" começa contando a vida de 5 estudantes em uma cidade/colônia, onde pelos protagonistas é contado a história do mundo 1000 anos a partir dos dias de hoje.
    O que seria 1000 anos a partir de hoje? O trama é baseado na repetição da ...

    An unexpected masterpiece.
    Many people may be turned off by the Yaoi in a couple episodes, but if you watch it all the way through you would find a rich, engaging and unforgettable anime. The art and animation in this show is beautiful and works well with the theme, the plot is thought provoking, and it's characters each have unique traits that make them stand out. It may seem like a generic school drama at first glance; ...

    Is slow at some points, but pulls through in the end
    This series has beautiful art and animation but finds few opportunities to make use of it. There are multiple time skips and at some points the story almost comes to a full stop. The end was satisfying and overall it's one of the best series currently on crunchyroll.

    Shink Sekai Yori is amazing
    Really, though, don't let the cover fool you. This is an intriguing story, with well-developed characters, and a plot that will keep you thirsting for more after every episode. It has a lot of dark themes as well as social/political commentary (some subtle, some not so much). Definitely a must see, and one of the best Animes of the season.

    Excellent Mirror Anime
    Before I get to the meat of my review, let me get the basics out of the way. The animation is great, - especially the backgrounds. There is a lot of detail work here that pays off in a big way.

    The character development is better than average. While the characters do change a little as they get older (This series jumps forward in time after each major event so the characters go from ...

    If you like suspensful, sci-fi thrillers, you'll love this show, probably.
    This show is masterful at bringing suspense. That was my impression every time I watched an episode. Some people complain that the pacing is slow, but for me, my friends, and some of the commentors, the episodes always ended too early. The world this story is set in is deep and wonderful in its own dark way. The moral and ethical dilemmas are fascinating to think about. That's what makes this show ...

  • Great Dystopia, heavy themes
    Although the cover hides it a bit, this is an upper level anime thematically. The first array of episodes is especially interesting to think about and analyze. If you want an anime that offers plenty of meat for you to chew on with your brain, this is the one. However, it is not for those seeking simple amusement, as the gem of this anime is all in the rhetoric and themes.

  • From the New World :
    This anime is quite fascinating. From the beginning my expectations were far surpassed through a series of unexpected plot twists and character developments, which made it into something much more enthralling. A brilliant watch. n_n

    DO NOT LET THE COVER FOOL YOU.
    Ok I'll be honest, the cover for this is quite a bit misleading, of course until I started watching the show and understood how deep and relevant it is towards the show itself. (Which i must say is brilliantly executed)

    I say this because this is not an anime for everyone.

    With that being said heres a quick list of what it is not:

    A shounen
    A slice of life
    A show about ...
