They both have an eerie feel to them. Shinsekai Yori is a lot darker than Made in Abyss although they both have the feeling of a hidden deep story that is unraveled as you go. Both are also coming of age stories that show the world isn't as bright as you think from first impressions.

They both offer this "what you think is wrong" concept. There are way darker things going on beyond what the eye sees and both focus on children.

Both shows have a cast of young characters who explore a new world with little knowledge of it. The atmosphere is dense and mystifying in each show. Their themes include coming-of-age and Hierarchy in nature.

Both shows feature very young protagonists who have an unusual sense of curiosity - although Shinsekai Yori is a coming of age story, which and has more of a dystopian feel. Both open up many questions for the viewer, and the characters strive to discover these secrets along the way. The settings are filled with nature over civilisation, creating a seemingly light atmosphere that has darker undertones (especially Shinsekai Yori)

These series feature young protagonists in a setting darker than they think that is, with fantastic worldbuilding, slowly finding out answers for all the mysteries and questions that keep appearing along the way.

Both have unique ways of telling the story and presenting the world. Even though both start nicely, and it's all bright and peaceful at the beginning, once the characters leave the surface (in Made in Abyss' case literally, in Shinsekai yori's case figuratively), and dwelve deeper and deeper, they discover how twisted and horryfing their world is. Both are eerie, have settings that aren't familiar with the viewer and their worlds are explained gradually, as the heroes of the story discover the truth.

Both anime revolve around kids as they grow and mature in a fantasy world. They share similar art styles and are targeted at the same age group. Shinsekai Yori is slightly more serious and philosophical. Made in Abyss has better adventure aspects.

Both have: - feeling of dread and constant fear of the unknown as central plot elements - main characters are naive children exploring a dangerous world - supernatural environment without generic fantasy stuff - remnants of an ancient civilization are scattered throughout current world - not afraid to explore sexuality/romance of young characters - tons of mystery and intrigue

Both series are similar in the sense of everything is not as it seems.

Both have main characters with high curiosity. As the story progresses, more hidden truths are found.

Dystopian world for which the main characters are burdened with the passion of wanting to know more about their world. Both hold a psychological tension, and sense of horror that is held throughout the series.

Both have eerie atmospheres and gravitate watchers towards the mystery of a terrifyingly natural world. Both always feel complete and never feel contrived.

Both have similar worlds with normal humans and mysterious fantasy beasts. While the humans in From the New World have telekinetic powers, the characters in Made in Abyss are normal humans who use artifacts from the Abyss to survive. Neither worlds have modern technology, instead using the unique resources available to them to achieve their goals. They both have strong, intelligent female leads who start as children, and we see them grow as the story progresses. Riko from Made in Abyss stays a 12 year old girl throughout the story but grows emotionally, whereas we actually see Saki progress from childhood through adulthood. Both stories follow   read more

Both start out as a normal, post apocalyptic show, but something just feels off about the world. It's only until later in both series that you realize the world shown isn't quite as happy as it may appear. The weirdness is more passive in Made in Abyss, and takes more of a center stage in Shinsekai Yori. And finally, both are superb shows well worth your time.
