Synopsis

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.

Please don't associate the manga with the real novel or anime adaption. This manga is 100% fanservice.

The manga is basically just ecchi. There was no need for a manga version to start with since the series is derived from a novel. Would definitely not advise anyone to read unless they wanted to read hentai.

The manga does indeed include a portion of the original plot, however the intensity of the plot is weakened by the constant fan-service. The male characters such as Satoru, Shun, and Mamoru are left in the dust.

This manga is horrible. Do yourself a favor and support the anime and hope we can get an official NOVEL translation.

The story has been significantly dumbed down in favor of fanservice. Honestly, I do not mind the shows of lesbianism because they are present in the anime. However, this adaptation exaggerates the femalexfemale relationships while completely eliminating the malexmale ones.

You may argue that the relationship between Saki and Maria is more important than the one between Shun and Satoru. But there is no reason to have several pages dedicated to showing their naked (underage) bodies rubbing against each other.

If you've watched the anime of Shinsekai Yori and are thinking you would want to check the manga version with the mindset that you're in for yet another incredible thought-provoking journey, do not take that step.

Personally, I can't imagine how a masterpiece-level series would ever have a poor adaption. That was before I read this manga.

Everything is wrong in this terrible adaption. The story which is the series' best aspect is turned into a pile of rubbish, by totally changing the flow of the events, which in the novel and anime are linked together incredibly well. The same-sex relationship theme which is essential in the read more

I had no idea this was an anime or novel when I read the manga so can't comment on how it compares. The cartooning is very well done, though there is a lot of fan service, which is somewhat weird, since when its not doing fanservice it's pretty well crafted science fiction horror blend.

Having only read 4 chapter so far, it seems the fan service is leading to some genuine relationship places, which is very interesting. Too soon to say what I think of it overall, but this is certainly an above average scifi manga with an interesting world slowly being revealed. read more
