From the New World
Volume 1


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.


Shinsekai yori is an adaptation of Kishi Yuusuke's science fantasy novel from 2008 of the same title.

The series was published in English as From the New World by Vertical Inc. from November 12, 2013 to January 20, 2015.

I wont go againt the current opinion, the manga is trash compare to the anime or novel. If you've heard that Shinsekai yori is a great masterpiece and were looking to see it, it's not the good version go look for the anime or novel (both are great). However if you've allready seen one of the other 2 versions and like it, then you should consider trying the manga. There's a lot of flaw the more apparent being the yuri (sometime loli) echhi, sexuality is a one of the theme of the story indeed but while the other version did a good job at suggesting ...

Mixed Feelings

This manga in all honesty deserves a 3 or a 4, but I gave it a 6 because I enjoyed it more than I thought I would.

This manga is a horrible adaptation of the Shinsekai Yori novel. Characters and events are drastically changed, even inserting and creating whole new ones. There is also A LOT of fanservice. The fanservice interrupts important parts of the story and undercuts several serious moments. They even make Saki a child predator in the manga. Its a poor adaptation and manages to turn an excellent ...

I've read the novel and saw the anime. When I found out the manga existed as well I was very happy but... How can I say it?

It's horrible. It is so bad I wish I never read it. The novel is dark, deep, it makes you think about life as a whole.
The anime is very similar to the novel, althought the animations are not always top tier it follows the story without changing anything.

And then there is the manga. Characters changed so much I can barely recognize them. The main protagonist wears bitchy chlotes almost all the time and the whole plot is blown away ...
