Shin Sekai Yori, also known as From the New World, is a Japanese anime television series that aired on TVAsahi from 2012 to 2013. The show is based on the sci-fi novel of the same name by Yusuke Kishi. The story is set in Japan, a thousand years in the future, in a world where humans possess psychic powers called "Juryoku." The protagonist, Saki Watanabe, is a teenager who lives in a utopian society called the "Kamisu 66th district," which appears to be an idyllic village full of happy families.

However, as the story unfolds, Saki and her friends discover that their world is far from perfect, and they must confront the dark secrets and hidden horrors of their seemingly peaceful society.

At the heart of the story is the concept of power and control, as the ruling elite use psychic powers to maintain their grip on society, while suppressing those who threaten their authority. This creates a complex web of relationships and conflicts between the characters, as they navigate the treacherous politics of their world.

The show also explores themes of identity, belonging, and the nature of humanity. As Saki and her friends uncover more about their past and the history of their world, they begin to question who they are and what their place in society truly is. This leads to moments of intense introspection and self-discovery, as the characters come to terms with their own limitations and aspirations.

The animation in Shin Sekai Yori is top-notch, with stunning visuals and richly detailed backgrounds that bring the world of the show to life. The design of the psychic powers is particularly impressive, as the characters use their abilities to manipulate the world around them in a variety of creative ways.

The music is also a standout feature of the show, with a haunting score that enhances the drama and emotion of each scene. The voice acting is equally impressive, with Makoto Takahashi delivering a powerful performance as Saki, and the rest of the cast bringing their characters to life with nuance and depth.

Overall, Shin Sekai Yori is a thought-provoking and engaging anime that explores complex themes with intelligence and depth. It is a show that will challenge your assumptions and leave you contemplating its ideas long after the final episode. If you are a fan of science fiction or anime, then this is definitely a series worth checking out.

Shin Sekai Yori (From the New World) is a series that is currently running and has 1 seasons (26 episodes). The series first aired on October 2, 2012.
