Shin Sekai Yori after episode 01 – First Impressions

           I felt a strong Elfen Lied vibe while watching the opening scene of this anime…anyways, watching the first episode of Shin Sekai Yori gave me a feeling of standing in the eye of a hurricane. The atmosphere seems relatively calm, but soon, and inevitably, chaos and destruction comes. Just from its first episode it is clear that it is not matter of if, but when crap will hit the fan. This is one main draw of the show for me.
           The other draw comes from wanting to know more about its setting. Every sci-fi story set in the distant (and often unfamiliar) world and or time always has the opportunity of intriguing its audience with its setting, and Shin Sekai Yori is no exception here. A thousand years into the future it appears adept ability of telekinesis is mandatory by childhood or teenage years. And not only that, those who aren’t disappear…or worse. I hope Shin Sekai Yori will address the questions of “How?” and “Why?” with interesting answers.
