Shinsekai Yori was a great series and one day it will get the respect it deserves
People are already starting to recognize it. Wasn't as good as I expected.
Only the ending was good, in my opinion. The rest was padded with mostly pointless stuff, but I still like it.
Yeah, AOTY for 2012 in my opinion. It was fantastic.
And fuck shota Satoru is cute as hell.
Can someone explain what the point was of Shun coming back later in the series? He just sort of showed up and smiled and then turned out to be a mirage or something. Was that just Saki remembering his name? Or was he still alive and following her? That confused the fuck out of me.
Dropped it 3 eps in and after seeing caps of all the gay shit I'm glad I did.
It was one of the rare series I dropped at the first episode. It reeked of trying too hard to be dark and edgy. Is it worth giving it another shot? Is the rest of the series like that?
Saki's mind fucking up I believe. Shun definitely died in the cabin.
>Oh no two boys are being close to each other for 15 seconds, I am very offended
He's dead. Saki was high.
It gave us the hero we deserve.
It will be remember as "that one show with the gay dudes and lesbians, and I think there was a naked mole rat or something?" and nothing more.
The first episode gives you a fairly good idea of what to expect from the rest of the series. If you didn't enjoy it then you made the right choice to drop it.
>tfw not even Saki remembered Reiko
It's the only masterpiece that came out in the last few years.
It was mostly a story of friendship so the duration I think was really important. If we didn't grow up with the characters then we wouldn't care so much what happened to them or have as much of an understanding of Saki's grief.
>one day it will get the respect it deserves
Yeah, gotta love them half-assed adaptions of great novels. They really deserve a whole lot of respect.
Have more Maria drama. And then let's beat some dead horse with Shun drama.
I thought it was a really good adaptation. The soundtrack alone was worth it.
Wow, what a retarded opinion. Why watch a drama series if you don't like drama?
It would have been better as a Hollywood adaptation
>Shinsekai Yori had a great last 5 episodes.
If it was a good adaption they would have given the character development and exposition in a method other than periodic info dumps. They don't work in a visual medium.
Well, it got licensed in Bongland.
There is hope.
I think A-1 did a good job, but another studio might have worked out better.
Definitely Madhouse. A-1 made some budgetless crap far too much.
Saki = GOAT christmas cake
Fuck Madhouse. Excluding the Kaiji sequel they haven't made a good anime in like three years.
Take a load of this faggot.
Look at Madhouse in 2010:
Tatami Galaxy, Redline, HOTD
Look at them now. It's just sad.
SSY was seriously awesome.
If you guys don't mind I'll be dumping some potato shots of the key animation book.

Where is that from?
I don't see it on amazon.

>anything but shit
I'm sure you mean "purest form of love"
It was bad, slow, had lots of quality and in the end, the only good thing was episode 4 or 5 where they get lost as kids.
It was sold at C85, got it off Mandarake.
VA comments at the side, illustration by Hirokazu Kojima
How about you suck a dick?
Purest form of love
time for some key animation
It should get more respect, The story and characters were wonderfully done, Every Sunday wondering what Squealer would do next was just brilliant.
One of the most enjoyable shows in 2012/13.
All the key animation pages have some comments at the bottom. Unfortunately, it's in Japanese
I never even picked it up while it was airing.
Because god damn that artstyle is awful.
Was this series fun to watch with /a/? I kind of regret only seeing it recently.
I think Takashi Kojima animated this part? He did a lot of good work in SSY.
Unfortunately, it was not that popular on /a/ because of the gay episode. Still, the threads were fun.
I guess if art style is all you care about you can just stick to KyoAni.

Finally, some staff comments. There's a very nice illustration of Maria drawn by Ishihama himself but it's hard to take a photo since it's a two page spread.
Squealer was the only good thing in this show. Him and Saki's ass.
I want this artbook. How much money? Where.. how..?
in that Shun episode (10 I think), the animators just fell completely in love with Saki's crotch and ass. So many glory shots.
Anon, thank you for contributing something to this thread other than the usual homophobic remarks
Wasn't she wearing a white body suit thing that really showed off her as that episode?
It was bad.
Oh, I forgot to mention that the book only covers the last episode. A bit of a shame since there were some great cuts in other episodes but at least the show has a key animation book at last.
Original novel series already deserved well.
Anime adaptation? No.
Yes, that episode.
That's probably due to the episode director's tendency to include closeup shots.
Time to wipe those fucking degenerate monkeys out. We won't spare a single fucking one.
That fucking cat.
I swear if I see that saki one more time...
seriously, who is reiko?
>anything but shit
So fucking brave and loyal. I wish I had a dogbro like that...
pretty much all dogs are like that. just get a dog.
it was great but it was so fucking stretched out at some points. Superb ending though.
Squealer did nothing wrong.
>anything but plain garbage
>no XEBEC option.
fuck you. I want super sexualized Maria doing ecchi things with super sexualized Saki.
Cats > Dogs
I'm okay with your statement if you are okay with mine.
name a single memorable cat from anime
Shamisen from Haruhi
Sakamoto-san from Nichijou
Akumanojou from Ghost Stories
that one cat from Sailor Moon
Blaire from Soul Eater
Mao from Darker than Black
ur a faget
Daily reminder that Squealer was right
The only wrong things squealer did was fail in his righteous quest.
A true hero and a real human bean
SSY is probably the best anime that has come out since Madoka. It's ashame more people haven't seen it because of the "gay" stuff.
Isn't this the anime where everyone is bi?
A little bit too late now,buddy.
It's funny that you think either of those shows are good
He was retarded for making his move too early. He should have camped on the 'fiend' and got more of them to assure his victory.
I honestly don't remember her either
Ok buddy, name better anime that has come out in the last 3 years then.
it's funny that you don't, but I don't care, plenty of people have shit taste
She was removed because she was a shitty user.
the thing is, the "gay" stuff added nothing but shameless otaku pandering. it was completely irrelevant to the plot and could have been removed entirely if they had any sense of decency.
Kaiji season 2
Madoka was fucking terrible, the art was cool, everything else was an embarrassment. It's pathetic the shit is popular.
>but I don't care
That's why you replied right?
I wonder if the early episodes would be better to me now that I know all of the shit that happens behind the scenes
I watched it a second time with a friend and there's lots of subtext to pick up on, it's really rewarding
Awesome, I think I'll give the first few episodes a rewatch
That's not true at all. It's a main part of the plot. The genetic engineering the scientists did to the espers so that they defused stress with sexual relationships goes hand in hand with turning normal people into queerats. I thought it was great world-building and fleshed out the story well. I'm not gay either if your wondering too.
No. They were there to build the world. As well as to create tension as we explore the world with them.
> I'm not gay either
neither are the otaku it panders to retard
Then how is pandering idiot? If the otaku are not gay then why would showing gay things indulge them? Also way to dismiss my argument. I doubt you've even seen SSY.
> If the otaku are not gay then why would showing gay things indulge them?
You can't be this stupid
Please explain to me how I'm wrong. Once again have you even seen SSY? If you have then you would realize the "gay" parts are a segment of the world-building and actually criticized by the MC.
Why do you even bother? He's just shitposting, leave him alone and watch some anime instead.
Why should I explain common sense to a MAL level retard? The fact that you believe homosexual fanservice/pandering is aimed at homosexuals shows how naive and clueless you are.
>MAL level retard
>lesbian porn is for lesbians
I think I've all but confirmed you haven't seen SSY. There's no point arguing with a clueless idiot like you who hasn't even seen the source material in question, let alone even substantiate his claims.
Oh god no.
No no no no no no.
The show is irrelevant to the discussion I started with you moron. Please explain why you stupidly believe yuri/yaoi is aimed at the same sex of the characters. This is the issue I addressed you about, stay on topic.
The gay scenes were fucking explained in like episode three.
> one day it will get the respect it deserves
Today? It gets none, which is what it deserves.
>I guess if visual style and animation is all you care about in a visual medium you can just stick to productions that are generally high quality
you told him
Your shit taste is showing.
you feal insecure about your sexuality so you feal bad when you see 2 people of the same gender kiss? sorry since you are probably a virgin you dont know about your sexuality yet... since you got none...
Go back to facebook where your poor grammar and social justice is accepted.
It was shit.
Loved it from start to finish. One of the few anime that I can say that about in recent history
>The show is irrelevant to the discussion I started with you moron.
Really? Let's have a look at your original post.
>the thing is, the "gay" stuff added nothing but shameless otaku pandering. it was completely irrelevant to the plot and could have been removed entirely if they had any sense of decency.
You are a fucking retard. I'd like you to read that first sentence again and tell me our discussion has nothing to do with the show. In addition, after I dismantled your original claim you chose to cherry pick something I said and focus completely on that instead of backing up your original argument. Please stop posting, this is embarrassing.
Don't get so riled up anon, that guy is obviously shitposting.
>Let's have a look at your original post.
there it is.
You are a fucking retard. I have not once mentioned this show.
It's the inevitable fate of SSY threads nowadays. Unless an anime has a dedicated fanbase willing to circlejerk about it, threads about said anime months after everyone stopped caring will inevitably devolve into a shitposter war.
Well Reiko was never Saki's friend.
It's funny how pathetic fans of hipster shit like you always play the victim when you invite every attack you receive.
Why are you in this fucking thread then? Fine, whatever.Homoshit can pander to a certain niche of otaku. Regardless, the "gay" stuff in SSY is not pandering and that is what I've been trying to convey the whole time.
>Why are you in this fucking thread then? Fine, whatever.
I see this is your way of admitting you need to lurk more since you are so stupid you can't tell when you are speaking to two different people
I'm not even a fan. I'm just someone who slowpoked this, thought it was decent, and decided to check out the threads about it because why not. And then I realised that all these threads are shit because retards like you come to start fights instead.
Absolutely fantastic story muddled with inconsistent animation and weird pacing. While the soundtrack was great it was not used well at all, at many points I wished it would shut the fuck up the same song over and over again.
Because everyone has trip codes right? Tell me how I'm supposed to differentiate someone who jumps in to an argument I'm already having with someone and then appears to take their stance. I'm out. Sorry for fucking up the thread with my pointless bantering guys.
>all these threads are shit because retards like you come to start fights instead.
Learn to read moron. You retards invite the attacks you get. And you deserve it with your childish behaviour. Stop playing the victim.
>not enjoying leitmotifs
It's like you hate score composition or something.
>Well Reiko was never Saki's friend.
But she was in Group 1. And it's just so sad to think of how Group 1 has all these memories together and Reiko was never even given a chance to be part of it.
oh the ironing
Well they were given their memories back, right? I remember Saki being told she will be allowed to take back the memories they removed when she joins the committee.
>I remember Saki being told she will be allowed to take back the memories they removed when she joins the committee.
She never did join, though. She got a lab job.
That was just for a while. At the end she became part of the ethics committee just like Tomiko wanted.
What? Many songs in the soundtrack were so overused. Especially "Kage No Denshouka Daiichibu". They used that song at least twice per episode. I can't appreciate something if I'm always hearing it.
fuck, I should really stop posting until I finish the series
Give it a few more years. Eventually it will reach hidden gem status, and all the homophobe trolls will have long forgotten it.
I'm currently rewatching it. Definitely my favorite show of 2012.
Reminder that Fractale's sales don't looks so bad next to SSY.
It was one of most interesting anime to come up in years (a decade maybe?) Even if I think part of the execution was bad, and some other quality moment, is 9/10 good in general.
Is getting the recognition it deserves.
Only at the start and after the ending. We had non-stop threads for a week, unlike Psych Pass.
Hidden gem my ass. It certainly is interesting and I did enjoy it. But I can't believe how people can call this AOTY. It's isn't nearly as good. And then SSY fans accuse people who disliked it for having shit taste. That's why these threads always turns out being shit.
Name a better hidden gem from 2012. The only thing I can think of is Tsuritama.
Go into any thread about any anime and call it shit. I guarantee you someone will accuse you of having shit taste.
>Give it a few more years. Eventually it will reach hidden gem status, and all the homophobe trolls will have long forgotten it.
I dunno. This hardly ever happens, sadly.
I really can't recall any hidden gems at all. Apollon, Hyoka and Jintai were some of the shows I enjoyed the most on 2012 though.
Can't argue with that.

Squealer was right.
>dropping AOTS because of litreally one episode with homosexual issues
>considering dropping after the 10 minutes of first episode - the greatest intro to the series ever created
Mahou Sensou. What do I win?
It was shit and a rage fuel material.
Squirel was the only good thing about it, and it's not even that good, since the "terrible mutant"s are so mean to fucking esper scum which turn normal humans into fucking abomination.
What happened to Maria and Mamoru
Drowned in rat semen
Because why the fuck not?
Wouldn't you impregnate Maria and hit that delicious Mamooru boypussy all the day?
How else was Squealer supposed to get their bones back to the humans so they wouldn't go looking for them.
Never forgive the oppressing cantus users.
That's the last time we saw her, don't even know what happened to her. Fail to care.
Just fuck off whatshisname.
Why didn't they just try to genetically engineer away any ability to use psychic powers instead of turning the majority of the human race into monsters and leaving themselves completely and utterly vulnerable to psychopaths?
It makes me really sad to know them they were raped and killed without their friends even knowing
Why are you posting a blank picture?
I like to think that he somehow put his consciousness in Saki's subconscious before he died.
Unintentionally, of course.
How dare you insult Shun Jesus Christ Aonuma
His "cantus" leaked "inside" Saki.
if you know what I mean.
There wasn't a character named Shun in SSY.
Stop playing dumb
You know he's real
Because they like their godpowers
What happened to Ryou
>What happened to Maria and Mamoru
Caught by rats, lobotomized, forcibly impregnated, then killed after the rats had the baby to raise. Then their bones were brought back to the ethics committee as proof that they had died in an avalanche.
Wasn't that the bitch who insisted the festival continue? If so, I'm glad she's dead.
She did the opposite, she actually was very cautious
He will forever be remembered as one of those faggots who become more annoying after their death.
I'm pretty sure she was the only one who wanted to postpone the festival.
If this was animated people could have forgot the gay.
>she actually was very cautious
Which in SSY world translates as being overly paranoid. In other words she was a cunt.
Then this guy must be an open manhole with pubes for all he achieved
Why did he have to die? ;_;
Thank you anon.
BTW people, do you know something about the license? I think it was licensed in USA but I'm not sure.
because he was dumb
We don't know his name, we don't know his purpose, we don't know why he is here, we don't know what the fuck happened when he died. It's in those moments the show simply sucked to no end by focusing on completely irrelevant stuff.
Very nice series indeed.
I want give Maria my seed
How did Mamoru even manage to fuck her. He's beta as fuck.
see the ending, then the rest.
would be a good pull i guess
Too bad Manmoru beat you to it
Actually he's the most alpha guy inthe show
Everybody turned gay, but he stood his ground
There are two possibilities.
A)Maria raped him
B)Squealer forced them.
While the latter is the more likely I none the less yearn for the former.
Straightest kid in the entire show. Actually, that's probably why they wanted to kill him
>Too bad Manmoru beat you to it
its ok, I am perfectly ok with not being the first.
I'll just have to make up for it by being the best and keep for around me forever
Jesus no more Maria please. Seems like Saki couldn't say something without ending it with Maria something in the second half.
>killing a person for being the perfect straight.
damn that LGBT future!
Sorry anon, together forever won't apply as well
>Shun was an anagram of Christopher Robin.
> can never unsee
I'd fuck her straight
>Fortunately, it was not that popular on /a/ because of the gay episode. Because of that, the threads were fun.
Stop killing my dreams!
Wrong pic, but close enough
>Because of that, the threads were fun
So much this. Things went south in a heartbeat.
>You and your dreams
I remember a lot of people dropping it at that point. Which is funny because we're pretty much told to expect it in episode 4.
Not only that, but it was immediately followed by a longer yuri scene.
Wareta Ringo was the best anime song of its season, prove me wrong.
SEN NO KAZE
The second ending was better
>not Yuki ni Saku Hana
its like you dont want to listen to HanaKana saying "I love you" into your ear.
They put too much enthusiasm in that invading tongue scene.
I just don't see how a single french kiss was enough to put someone off of the whole show. The scene was really pretty mild all things considered. (Though Saki watching it hurt my heart)
>tfw UTW will never finish the blu-rays
So why'd they change the "Messiah" to be a female in the anime, instead of a male like he was in the novel?
I was thinking that they wanted some ambiguity for the audience about it possibly being Maria (in spite of her bones being DNA test confirmed)
Because redheads give me boners.
Pretty much as >>100904247
said, a cute redhead that looks like maria sells much more than a dude in a dirty rat-cloak.
Good. People with your type of sensitivity that can't handle a little bit of homosexuality (literally not even a minute) don't even deserve to watch a great show.
