Ima, Soko ni Iru Boku, Shinsekai yori Recommendations
Both series are set in a science-fiction dystopian society, with a cast of children who are confronted with the harsh realities of their world. Characters are faced with conflicting ideals, and communities are oppressed and stripped of their humanity and ultimately are engaged in a war. Both series explore themes of morality, fear and humanity and have incredible world building. Though Now and Then, Here and There is a relatively older series, its visuals still hold up. And of course, the visuals in Shinsekai Yori are stunning as well. These are coming of age stories in a dystopian society whose finales really do pay off.
Here, both anime take place in different settings as well, although both series have a futuristic take on them.
Shinsekai Yori ist about an Utopian society and Now and Then, Here and There is a dark isekai, where a boy gets transported into a dystopian future.
Also their styles are different and Shinsekai Yori is modern, while Now and Then, Here and There was produced in the 90s.
But both series are about children finding themselves in horrible situations, learning about the reality of their world and how certain circumstances could affect humans and change them.
Both Now and Then, Here and There and From the New World share a similar concept: the world is not as it seems, and there is indeed a dark side to life. It is in this underlying dark side that these anime both find their idealistic heroes struggling to make a better place for the future of all and it is this tone and attitude that make these two shows a good fit for each other.
Dystopia, war, and cute kids are just some of the key things From the New World and Now and Then, Here and There have in common. They're both outstanding shows for a start. But there's also an adult melancholy that hangs over both their stories, belying the cutesy character designs and hinting at something much more serious and profound. If you enjoyed the complex tragedy of one show, you will really enjoy the other.
Both have very deep story and a lot of (not so nice) subjects to make you think about the world they're living compared to us. AND both are not suitable for sensitive people but to Anime fan who want to watch adult series with serious topics, worth to watch, great shows!
