A-1 Picture’s adaptation of the original novel by Yuusuke Kishi, the events in which happen about a millennium from now, is a definite watch for most otaku.

Shin Sekai Yori is coming to TVs in Japan on Septermber 28, 2013.

The story of this anime revolves, as mentioned, around a group of five young children who are growing up in a utopian village, filled with beautiful natural landscapes and images. While the most interesting thing in this world is the power of telekinesis, called ‘God’s power’ or ‘the cursed power’, the five of them find out that keeping the peace in the world will not be possible for long. So, young as they are, Saki, Satoru, Maria, Mamoru and Syun begin their dangerous adventure in order to save the world as they know it… a world much different than ours.

Will the blood spilt from their predecessors turn against these members of the young generation, or will they manage to fight the events off?
