Synopsis

The story of a young woman fighting for her survival in a real "urban jungle." Only 18 years old, Kuniko Hojo finds herself at the heart of the battle for humanity's future when she discovers that the government which rules Atlas intends to continue marginalising the less-privileged masses outside the tower—by force, if necessary.

Everybody knows of at least one anime that, while being rather decent for the most part, is sorely let down by certain rudimentary failings which a little more planning could have easily resolved, and it's unfortunate that as anime has gradually become more commercially viable, this phenomenon steadily been increasing. It's a sad fact though that one of the main avoidable flaws is also one that a little common sense could fix.

A case in point is Shangri-La.

Adapted from the manga of the same name, which in turn is an adaptation of a series of science fiction light novels by Ikegami Eiichi, the anime version is read more

I happened to have caught the first episode of this anime on it's air date and I stuck it through all the way to the end. I must say that I am very pleased as upon finishing this anime I am left with that "epic journey" feeling. Well lets get to it...

STORY 6/10 - It was interesting, but I suppose I wouldn't say that it's breathtakingly captivating. Sometimes there will be discussions about the worlds fictional economy and to the less sophisticated the dialogue might go in one ear and out the other.

Recommendations

Both series are based on different novels that use a similar post-apocalyptic setting where a community of people forgotten by society lives outside a fortified utopia.
I can't really put my finger on it but there's something that reminds me of Shangri-La. It has been lingering in my mind since I started the series. If I tried to narrow it down to something, I would say it's the overall feel to both series. Also the content of the stories are quite similar. Young protagonist/s trying to find the truth about their twisted society. Both are entertaining and take suprising twists. I recommend to watch Shangri-La if you liked Shinsekai yori and vice versa :)
