Shinsekai yori

Type: TV
Episodes: Unknown
Status: Not yet aired
Aired: Sep 25, 2012 to ?
Producers: Aniplex, A-1 Pictures
Genres: Sci-Fi, Supernatural


About one thousand years into the future, civilization has been retrograded and humans are living dispersed within small communities. People in this era have a psychic power called "Juryoku" which materializes things they imagine. In the absence of advanced scientific technology, people are using this power as a major source of energy.

One day, a girl called Saki, along with her friends, finds a small archive robot outside the town. It records the ancient history of humans. It tells them that Juryoku was found in the 21st century and the discovery caused a world war between psychics and non-psychics. The psychics won this war and thus their reign of terror began.

When the adults in town figure out that the children discovered this forbidden knowledge, they seal their Juryoku and exile them. Saki and the others end up in a forest where they meet a huge hairless bipedal mouse known as a "Bakenezumi" and get involved in a violent war the creatures are currently engaged in.

So the show starts airing next week, and it's one that I'm particularly excited for. The synopsis really drew me in, and the quality shown in the PV is definitely keeping me antsy. Plus Hanazawa Kana is voicing a main character o3o

Episode 1 aired, and I'm really into it. Right off the bat this show got really psychological. Can't wait for next week's episode.

Even though I know it's all about build up, but I found ep 1 a bit boring to be honest...

What troubles me more is that I found A-1's big eyes art style doesn't really seem to fit with this type of story/character that well :/

Pshfrk 10-02-2012 08:37 PM

I don't have a problem with the style and I'm really enjoying the show . . .

Ep 2 is out and subbed. We just got a little taste of the plot in this one, by getting introduced to the bake-nezumi and:


This plot really has me hooked.

Ep 3 is out and subbed. The story is still relatively incomprehensible, but I'm starting to make some sense out of it. I've got the gist of what's happened and why humanity is what it is. Additionally, every time they list 'x years later' that's however many years after the fall of humanity (for those who didn't know). I don't want to give too much information from what I've been figuring out yet, don't want to spoil :v

Oh man episode 4 where ;_;

Harlequin 10-21-2012 02:57 PM

Just watched episode 4. This plotline just punched me in the face. EVERYTHING YOU THOUGHT YOU KNEW WAS A LIE.

RoflKnife 10-27-2012 01:22 AM

This episode. What. What happened to the art? Why were the scenes so disjointed? Why did their speech not match up with their facial expressions and such?

Dood, wat?

Blizt 10-27-2012 04:32 PM

This episode feels so messy like no other, I'm not really sure what I'm watching...

Bonobo sex world.

Well, it just seem to have that subject coming out of nowhere.

I mean sure we "learned" in previous episode that human will want to have sex to relieve heavy stress. But considering these are a bunch of kids who were terrified at the mere thought of "human can have desire to kill another human", their sudden transition in this episode just felt so weird...

Episode 5 had a different director than the one who oversaw the production of Episodes 1-4. I could do some digging and find the names, but I don't care enough to do that much work.

Don't worry, if you saw the preview at the end you should notice that the animation will be back to normal for the next episode.

Harlequin 10-29-2012 09:02 PM

Yeah it looked like they might have overblown their budget in the first 4 episodes and had to make up for it.

RoflKnife 11-03-2012 12:57 AM

Woah Cantus is some serious bullshit. They're what, 12? And ONE of them can do these ridiculous telekinetic things like slicing a large rock into a bunch of small pieces and firing them, super heating a large pool of water to boiling temperatures, and create small tornadoes.

Dani 11-03-2012 01:26 AM

Well considering the strict education and weeding so far, of course the kids can do that. They're basically the best of the best which their society wanted to keep. I mean, they can make detailed pieces of art with their mind and all too.

Satoru needs to get laid and find an inn to restore his HP/MP! He's becoming insane or whatever.

Also animation wasn't as derp as it was last episode, thank god.

Harlequin 11-03-2012 09:32 AM

Glad they got their budget back. I think Satoru probably powered the **** up because he's using Saki's mantra, or something. I dunno, maybe not. I still really love the ED to this show ;;

Or he powered up because PKs where stated to grow in power when pressured.

Satoru also did not reawaken his powers from Saki's mantra. It's his own. Remember that flaskback where they showed each other their mantra in the school building, then Saki cheated and looked at Satoru's mantra again by doing that paper trick when he was gone? That's how Saki knew.

Welp, that first arc ended with episode 7. Looks like episode 8 will be after a timeskip, and it looks fairly interesting, especially with the cliffhanger in 7.

RoflKnife 11-16-2012 09:23 AM

This episode.



This might top Magi's nipple rings.
