From Anime News Network:

The story is set in Japan a millennium from now. Five children the protagonist Saki, Satoru, Maria, Mamoru, and Shun have been born and raised in a tranquil town that can be described as a utopia, overflowing with water and green foilage. The world is ruled by people who have the "cursed power" or the "gods' power" of telekinesis.

After a certain incident, Saki and the others come to realize the true nature of their world. Before long, they learn everything, including the bloody history that brought humanity to this state. The five throw themselves into life-threatening adventure and fighting to protect friends and a world on the brink of collapse.

Note: This manga is a spinoff from the full-length novel.

Shinsekai Yuri, more like

The anime and the novel have far superior storytelling. Here, the story is a jambled mess. Build up, which made the anime so suspenseful, is almost absent here. This manga would benefit greatly from a much slower, measured pacing.

Cutting the yaoi parts was unnecessary (especially considering the unwelcome changes to the story that this caused), in my opinion, but the yuri gets my full approval.

edit: Dat final solution...

Just keep pleasuring her until she believes she's human... No matter how silly the notion of it working is, it's hilarious enough for me to excuse any attached plot hole.

Why the hell did they turn this into an Ecchi story?

As much as I hate to admit, I am actually kind of enjoying this alternate version of Shinseki Yori because of the addition of the H and Yuri element. Does anybody else find the manga more fun to read than the novel or the anime?

The art is mind-bendingly good! So good it doesn't even make sense!

I feel like it's even better than to-love-ru, and from me that's saying something. And to top it off the setting seems good and the plot is easy to understand! A sure ten from me.

Shin Sekai Yori has been my favorite story, and I am excited to see that it's being made into a formidable manga; the level of Oikawa's art is astonishing. The story doesn't cut too many corners so the story is still very cohesive and the emotion riding the plot is as glorious as ever.

I am still angry at the paranoid, murdering schoolteachers, utterly disgusted by the Queerats (like the way they look and how they get treated by humans) and I'm raining tears when Saki learns of Maria's death.
I hope that the author decides to revisit Saki's world in a sequel. By the way, Risa Taneda who voiced Saki got more than 20 new roles for various anime because she did so well in Shin Sekai Yori. Ah, I could die a little more peacefully if I had her voice from Wareta Ringo playing nearby as I did. The Yuri elements might not be everyone's cup of tea, (I can hear my friend Kassidy yelling, "Where's the Yaoi?!") but it's mine for certain.

Amazing Plot

The plotline is great, and its scope is very ambitious. It's interesting how they added so many ecchi elements to a relatively dark storyline. The art is one of the best I've seen in a manga and it has very fast paced and enjoyable action.

What I'm curious is if they remember what happened to Reiko and are just ignoring the reality. If that's the case it's really dark and strange and I wonder what will happen to the other characters.

Yes, the bigger problem it face is pacing. The manga will benefit greatly with more structured story telling, revealing strange nature of the world in timely manner. I can imagine the thrill if they don't get revealed whimsically. Exclusion of yaoi, since it's mentioned to be exist in the novel, is a welcomed alteration, since I believe demographic for manga is more segmented than for novel. The art is great, but the design is not.

Would not recommend.

To be honest, I like the manga better than the anime or novel, because in my opinion the novel and anime is a bit slow-paced and out of order so it leaves confusion as to the manga is organized and I could completely understand what's going on. If we were to decide I bet Shinsekai Yori would be more famous if they followed the manga since it's more understandable. Also, I have noticed that 75% have been rooting to not kill off Maria so I just hope that they would atleast alter those events since it's an economical demand and might invite more readers from the unexpected turn of events! the art is also awesome and the plot is better ~ Maria ♥ Saki

Good art, but a bit too depressing

Post apocalypse world, what can go wrong?

Well, the theme, apparently. since it's too depressing, and the characters get killed right and left, and not enough sex scenes to take our minds of that... I must say that it's not to everyone taste.

Good shit, but it's an acquired taste.

This is the definition of a shitty cash grab without redeeming features. Only the art is great but that also hold true for 50% of all professionally published mangas .
I stopped watching the anime because it moved like a snail and bored me but it wasn´t bad.
Lets just assume the novel is the same. This adaptation here though just sucks and can´t stand on its own two legs.
No explanation whatsoever to the characters and setting, just crazy exposition in Volume 2 and full on nonsense in Volume 3. Gratuitous lesbian sex between 14 year olds that makes no sense, grinds the story to a full stop and manages no undermine everything else. That on the other hand is here in spades.
Seriously, why is there a fingering orgy between multiple girls in the public bath other then for the nudity ?
I also accuse the writer/artist of being homophobes. They knew that boy on boy wouldn´t sell and turn the shonen readers of so lets skip all that and add more yuri action. Fantastic.
Why would the readers be interested in a gradeschool level romance for the main two girls where they can´t get up the courage to confess their feelings to their male love interests when they will just bang each other instead an the end of the chapter. And their lesbian relationship can´t be a draw either because how the world-rules are and where the story is probably going. There is even sexposition(hello Game of Thrones) because porn over plot right ?
Don´t get me wrong, the weird and highly random narrative grinds my gears as much as the sex and i only checked the manga out because i heard how bad it was. The whole thing reminds me of the My Hime/Otome manga adaptation which had the very same problems. 3 Volumes was enough for me that´s for sure.
