About From the New World Collection 1 Blu-ray

From the New World Collection 1 contains episodes 1-13 of the anime directed by Masashi Ishihama.

Born into a world a thousand years in our future, Saki and her friends Satoru, Maria, Mamoru and Shun have lived their entire lives in what seems to be a perfect utopia. Not only is their small, idyllic community overflowing with clean rushing water and abundant green foliage, but almost all technology has been rendered irrelevant by the magical power of "Juryoku," the psychic ability to materialize anything one desires. But when Saki discovers a long-lost artifact from the past, the facade of their world is shattered and the cracks that split the foundation of their reality threaten to swallow them whole!

Faced with a bloody secret history of how their world really came to be and thrust into a nightmarish new paradigm, Saki and her companions are confronted with dangers they never knew existed and a series of choices that may change the fate of every intelligent creature on the planet - human and otherwise!

Amazing and Very Underrated

by

The story, animation, and music are all fantastic in this. Unfortunately, when it aired, a lot of people stopped watching because of a homoerotic scene somewhere around episode eight, which is a shame as things only get more and more interesting with each episode. It has some of the best suspense I've ever seen in an anime series and, overall, is definitely worth buying.

First half great

by

The first 13 episodes were great, centering on the 6 (or so) main characters. But after the story jumps ahead 10 years and switches to the naked mole rats, It's just a completely different storyline. I had to really plow through to the end, just to see how it ended.

Don't Judge An Anime By It's Cover

At first glance From the New World would seem to be your average cute girl, school, anime but upon further inspection that assumption is proven extremely false. This is my favorite anime at the moment and for good reason. The art style is fantastic and has amazing animation that keeps you visually stimulated and engaged. The soundtrack is fantastic making each episode insanely immersive. The story is complex which may steer you away but it is one of the most fascinating, unique, intelligent concepts to be tackled in an anime and you will surely enjoy as you are taken along for the ride. Buy this anime (especially since it's on clearance now!) and enjoy arguably one of the greatest anime to ever be created.

Dystopian Gender Studies

by

This series is not a typical study in dystopia - it comes off at first as utopian as it actually seems, which is a rarity in most series of dystopian anime. However, upon unfolding the series, you find out that there are various subtexts and reasons for not only the manner of the world itself but how characters act. The art style used to demonstrate it is both heartbreakingly beautiful and violent at the same time.

Definitely not a show for anyone under the age of 16; it deals with sexuality openly (which is not a bad thing but can be boring for younger viewers without having context) as well as warfare, bigotry, and politics.

A must see for any anime fan

by -

One of the best new anime I have ever seen. it has a new C.G. look ( though I prefer hand drawn) but with the old school anime story plot. mostly for older viewers just because of its complex story line , I highly recommend it . A definite must see for any otaku.

Engaging....

by -

This was an amazing anime series; one of the best I've seen. Set in a post-apocalyptic future it tells the story of several kids as they mature in society with many hidden secrets. This anime explores some deep theme like the consequence of near-absolute power, the meaning and worth of humanity, and the steps that a people undertake to survive.

And yet it doesn't fall into the trap of heavy exposition. You uncover the secrets and the depths of the story a little at a time, grounded by the view of the children forced to confront some horrific ideas and experiences.

You Won't Want To Miss This

Wow. All I can say. Fantastic series that keeps you guessing with well-written plot and a fascinating world where everything isn't as it seems. Would definitely recommend if you love sci-fi and fantasy and especially mystery.

As for the blu-ray, it's had an excellent audio quality (allowing you to hear an underrated soundtrack) with great lines and visuals. I'd definitely purchase the blu-ray, and at this price it's a no-brainer.

A fine release for an okay show.

Product details are at the bottom.

SHOW DETAILS:
From the New World. A show that opens up with a lot of potential, but eventually sizzles out by the time that the ending is hit. It is fairly entertaining primarily due to the suspense that is employed relatively well throughout the show; however, this becomes overshadowed by what feels like the development of an inconsistent, insignificant, and weak story.

The characters were a weak point since there wasn't a whole lot of time to develop connections before they were thrown into a variety of conflicts, resulting in bittersweet resolutions, if even that. The process would then repeat. The monster rats have moderately okay development as characters.

I personally was not a fan of the dub.

Overall, it's decent. I wouldn't immediately turn somebody away from viewing it considering that it is a love it or hate it kind of show.

PRODUCT DETAILS:
It's a Blu-Ray case with a bare bones disc. No special physical extras.

From the New World is a brilliant story that will keep you thoroughly entertained, as well as make you think.

From the New World also does a great job of building the world that characters are living in. While initially, and purposefully, vague you will come to understand why the world is like it is. The story provides a detailed history of how the world became the way it is, and what it was like before. This provides essential context to the events that are currently occurring, and it was all explained really well. Even though there are several flashbacks and time skips, the story never felt rushed. There are also other things that will be mentioned or subtly alluded to, and you’ll have to be paying attention to understand what’s being referenced and shown to you.

I had no major issues with the story, but there was one small thing that I wished was explained a little better: I never got a sense of what they could or couldn’t do with their abilities, other than the parameters explained at the beginning of the series, but that is a very minor issue.

Verdict: 4.6/5
