Shin Sekai yori

Shinsekai yoriA genuine piece of speculative post-dystopian science fiction, exploring progressive thought-provoking themes like destructive nature of human subconsciousness, paranoiac obsession with correct child upbringing, bisexual society and the excruciating hypocrisy of interspecies relations.

Positive: Negative:
Dark suspenseful atmosphere Main cast, other than the queerats, is pretty bland
Engrossing suspenseful plot Execution of some ideas, especially towards the end, feels a bit weak
Genuine scientific themes such as bonobo behavior
The uplifting tone of the ending feels misguided
Good story mixing xenofiction with speculative fantasies
Thought provoking on human nature and interspecies relations
