It is one thing to watch a horrible society, and another thing entirely to know and understand how humanity put itself in such a position.
An interesting dystopian anime that questions the boundaries of being human and human morality.
If Brave New World was an anime, it would probably look like Shinsekai Yori.
The pinnacle of storytelling in anime, Shinsekai Yori thrives in it’s masterful plot and ability to make you question your own ideals.
This show makes great use of Mahler’s New World Symphony in adapting a novel into a gripping dystopian anime. Very pretty animation, too.
It baffles me that a show with such awful writing, directing, and animation is considered a masterpiece by so many people. I hated it.
