Shinsekai yori

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.

      Awsome anime

First off: this is a rather serious anime. If one looks for plenty of humor fun,parody or cliché-scenes you are probably better off not watching this anime.

Well, about the anime you can say that it´s starts slow, pretty much slow. It takes on pace after a third of the episodes, but i still enjoyed watching the story very much. 

The main content about the story is : problems that come to society when humans have obtained god-like powers and how to deal with it. Also how to deal with other species etc..

This anime is also definitely dramatic and there is also a bit of romance.

What i liked very much about this anime is that you follow the protagonists from their early teens to their early adulthood.

So don´t just drop the anime cause you think watching childs is boring, it´s changes over time!

This anime is rather unknown due to it´s lack of pace and therefore dropped after the first few episodes, but it´s an amazing work of art and has an unique, gripping story.

Convince yourselves and give it a try!

     long, sorry

I preface this review with the statement that I haven’t reviewed an anime series before; the absence of reviews for this one has convinced me to write my first (and probably only).

As there are many plot summaries readily available elsewhere, I will describe Shinsekai Yori’s only briefly here. Set approximately one thousand years after the fall of contemporary society, the anime follows the stories of four children in a world where people wield a power called “Cantus,” a telekinetic power. During adventures beyond the watchful eyes of the elders and in encounters with the world beyond the village, the children and the audience come to understand a humanity at war with itself even as it is at war with external forces. The plot, driven by these two wars and by the extraordinary events which unfold from their interplay, culminates in a conflict which forces the characters and the audience to question which side, if any, is fighting the good fight and what humanity has become.

The summary above may be unsatisfying and, perhaps, confusing; one strength which should be evident, however, is that this anime goes beyond the lives of its protagonists. It strikes a good balance between character-driven storytelling and plot-driven storytelling, possessing character development without straying too far from a consistent and gripping overall narrative. It also does a good job of appealing to the audience’s interest in past events while setting the stage for an enjoyable story for the present, balancing well the audience’s interests in the past and present.

Another notable strength of this anime, one evidenced by the strengths described above, is that its plot is not entirely driven by its supernatural elements. Thus, while Cantus is an important part of the story, it is hardly its central focus and it yields the spotlight to more important details and plot. Another similar strength is that the anime does not depend heavily upon a poorly written love story; it understands that it is not a love story and it doesn’t try to be one.

Finally, I will comment positively on the less tangible atmosphere created by the anime. The animation quality is rather good and, combined with the music and voice acting throughout, succeeds in eliciting feelings of wonder, suspense, and mystery at the appropriate moments. While there are few fast-paced action sequences, and while these may be animated somewhat less well than the rest of the show, they are relatively unimportant and hardly central to enjoyment of what this series tries to create.

Despite these strengths, there are some aspects of this anime which bothered me a bit as I was watching it. The first few episodes, while clear the second time around, can be a bit confusing the first time through; however, this seems to be intentional, since the confusion at the beginning does make details revealed later more interesting. The rest of the series makes the potentially confusing beginning well worth watching.

Another issue some might have with the anime—one characteristic of almost any anime involving supernatural powers—is a difficulty accepting certain aspects of the power, Cantus. If one is willing to overlook a few major questions about Cantus and how it is controlled, however, one will find that the power and descriptions of it are fairly consistent throughout the show and do not cross enough lines to cause much real discontent with the series.

Ultimately, this short series is well worth a watch. Having watched many short and long series, I was pleasantly surprised by an anime which combines character-driven and plot-driven storytelling in such a brief but entertaining way. Not everyone appreciates the same stories,
