Manga Review: Shinsekai yori



About one thousand years into the future, civilization has been retrograded and humans are living dispersed within small communities. People in this era have a psychic power called “Juryoku” which materializes things they imagine. In the absence of advanced scientific technology, people are using this power as a major source of energy.

One day, a girl called Saki, along with her friends, finds a small archive robot outside the town. It records the ancient history of humans. It tells them that Juryoku was found in the 21st century and the discovery caused a world war between psychics and non-psychics. The psychics won this war and thus their reign of terror began.

When the adults in town figure out that the children discovered this forbidden knowledge, they seal their Juryoku and exile them. Saki and the others end up in a forest where they meet a huge hairless bipedal mouse known as a “Bakenezumi” and get involved in a violent war the creatures are currently engaged in.

After watching the anime I decided to read the manga. I was surprised of how different the manga was from the anime. The anime is based on the novel not the manga. Therefore lots of thing were different. The manga had more action in it. It was very Graphic. In Shinsekai yori manga Saki and Maria‘s relationship is very intimate, the manga had lots of mature content. The uniform design is Ecchi. I liked how the Queerat‘s were drawn in the manga. Shinsekai yori is a manga about events that happened that happened with Saki and her group of friend and how those event effected the future. Adult Saki was so much prettier in the manga and dare I say smarter. The last volume of the manga is mind blowing everything that happened was so good and so exciting. I enjoyed it more than the anime to be honest. I cant recommend the manga though since its too 18+. If your in an age where you can read it check it out. If not then don’t.

Overall Rate: 9/10
