Shinsekai Yori Episode 5&6

It has been crazy the past few weeks.  Last week we had hurricane Sandy and all of its destructive power.  I have been trying to catch up on everything in my life and now it is time to try to catch up on my anime reviews.

Episode 5

The Monk is dead, no protection for the helpless kids.  They are left stranded in the world, surrounded by Queerats with nothing to defend themselves with, because their powers are sealed.  It was a very bad place to be in so everyone splits up and runs.  Saki and Satoru end up meeting up.  We are then introduced to Squera a friendly Queerat from another tribe who can speak Japanese.  There are 2 competing tribes.  The Ground Spiders are the aggressive tribe of Queerats who are attacking a rival group the Robber Fly who are much smaller and look sickly.  The Robber Fly treats Saki and Satoru as Gods but they unaware that their powers are sealed.

Shinsekai Yori is going to be 25 episodes long.  This show is based on 1 light novel.  Just how long is this one novel.  It must be very long to sustain a 25-episode anime.  There must be some really weird things to come.  I wonder if there is going to be some kind of time skip or maybe they will overthrow the strange cult in which they live in.  I don’t know what will happen and I don’t care as long as the show remains good.

Episode 6

I have a question.  Saki is able to review Satoru’s powers.  Could Saki just tell Satoru her mantra so that her powers could be reviewed?  That would make life easier if they both have their powers back.  One big problem is Satoru has been acting really strange since he got his power back.  Something is wrong and I have no idea what it is.  The show continues to be very slow paced but I am never bored.  What I don’t like is the weird skipping.  There are time skips that feel very unnatural

I will try to get the rest of my reviews up as soon as possible.  Have a good day!
