To Create the Illusion of a Perfect World, How Many Lives and Futures Must be Destroyed?

by

From the New World or Shin Sekai Yori might be one of the best fantasy animes to come out in decades. Focusing the story on a group of friends who slowly start to unravel the truth behind their peaceful world. And the consequences that soon follow. What's fascinating about this anime over other titles with similar themes is that we never stay too long one chapter of their life. The story starts out with them as grade schoolers and as the anime continues it goes through several time skips. Until they are adults. This is also a title that is doesn't pull punches, including themes of genocide, slavery and homosexuality. Not to mention revelations at the end will in ensure it is an anime you will never forget.



Sentai did a wonder job bringing this title over. The english dub is great with many stand out performances. Especially from the non-human characters. The blu-ray transfer is clean with no video or audio hiccups. It's just about as close to perfect as you are going to get.
