Amazing. What a beautiful ending. Continue reading Shin Sekai Yori 25 — I Wish it Wasn’t Over
Another excellent episode where not very much happens. Or at least it seemed that way when the ending started playing when I believed the episode had just started.

Enormous swarms of mites that devour a giant slug monster in a split second, that’s what. Continue reading Shin Sekai Yori 23 — Spelunking through Tokyo
This episode was mostly a setup showing the journey to Tokyo (which looks beautiful, by the way). Saki and Satoru escape from the Queerats and battle monsters. The party is supplemented by a library and Kiroumaru. Continue reading Shin Sekai Yori 22 — Journey to Tokyo
Aside from their violence and abduction of infants (a pretty big aside) I have to sympathize with the Queerats. The humans have been effectively using them as slaves. Now the tables are turned, with their infants born into slave labor, and they don’t like it.
When they meet the older Queerat underground, Satoru’s words betray some huge chutzpah. Satoru argues that Squealer doesn’t care about whether some of his soldiers die. Remember just a few episodes ago when Saki was daydreaming while she watched the Queerat armies slaughter each other? Yeah, they’re going to be convinced now that the humans give a crap whether they live or die.
