About one thousand years in the future, the civilization has been retrograded and the humans are living dispersed within small communities. People in the era have a psychic power called "Juryoku", which materialize things they imagine in their mind. In the absence of advanced scientific technology, they are using the power as a major source of energy. One day, Saki and her friends find a small archive robot outside the town. It records the old history of the humans. It tells them that "Juryoku" was found in 21st century and the discovery caused a world war between psychics and non-psychics. The world was ruled by the psychics and the reign of terror had begun. That was a prohibited knowledge and the adults in the town seal Juryoku of the children. Saki an others are deserted in a forest and there they meet a huge hairless mouse "Bakenezumi". They are involved in the violent war among the bipedal-walking creatures.

For some reason this is giving me Fractale vibes which I don't think is a good thing.

I will watch it nonetheless though.

Kudou Haruka is part of the cast too. Which took me off guard because I haven't heard her since... Noein and HachiKuro. Looks like she ended up coming back to her seiyuu activities after all? Now that I'm looking into it, I realize that she's had minor roles in SKET Dance and will be in Sengoku Collection next season.

And yeah, very promising announcement. I really wonder what sort of timeslot TV Asahi plans on giving the series.

This sounds really fucking bad. Retrograded human society? Bah. Damn hippies.

I expect they will fail to do anything creative or intelligent with those powers they are setting up, so all I really expect is someone to materialize panties repeatedly or other such fanservice which would be the only reason I would watch this, if at all.

War is only entertaining when missiles, lasers, debates, and realistic political strife are flying. Or gigantic magic fireballs or other general badassery. Not giant hairless rodents.

The animation looks just about like all the other animation out these days, so no it doesn't impress me. Plus that picture is too small to tell anyway. Will wait for bigger scans until I judge artstyle realistically.

Its like something Studio Ghibli would do...

It's quite dishonest and typically trollish logic to say that the fault lies in sensitive people when you do stuff on purpose to bother them.

Sci-Fi? Looks and sounds more like a Fantasy anime. But since it's A-1 Pictures, it might turn out to be decent.

For those who enjoy trivia, "Shinsekai yori" is named after Antonin Dvorak's Ninth Symphony, also titled "From the New World".

I read sci-fi and immediately was interested. Then I read the synopsis and saw the artwork, and now I'm not too sure. I hope it turns out to be good though; could always use more sci-fi anime.

Putting it on PTW. There needs to be more anime with psychic characters.

I will keep my expectations to "cautiously optimistic" levels, though, after how A-1 wasted the potential in both Fractale and Sora no Woto, but at least this is an adaptation of an existing work and has a different (rookie, though he's experienced as an animator) director working on it.

Nothing you said is even remotely logical. They aren't using their powers creatively unless they're materializing panties? Simplistic, closed-minded view on war? Ugh...

It looks like this will be the first time the director has his own series to direct, as all of his other roles involve animation and design. It could be a good or bad thing, but I'm curious to see the results.

I was interested as soon as I looked at the key illustration, but the plot seems just as promising when I got to the "juryoku" part. Will watch~

If your going to complain that Yu-Gi-Oh! Mangas are on the top NY times manga best sellers, you must not realize how popular Card games are(as well as the fact that you get a free card).
