Saki and her friends Satoru, Maria, Mamoru, and Shun have lived their entire lives in what seems to be a perfect utopia: a world where almost all technology has been rendered irrelevant by "Juryoku," the psychic ability to materialize anything one desires. But when Saki discovers a long-lost artifact from the past, the façade 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! Because when your whole world is a lie, the truth can be the deadliest weapon of all in From the New World!

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