Shin Sekai Yori - Karma Demon? What will happen to Saki?

Episode : 10 1. December 2012 17:43

Hello,

Let's talk about the 10th episode of the fall season 2012 anime series Shin Sekai Yori that continues to give us more information about this mysterious world and the supernatural powers possessed by our five young main characters.

Yes, the gravity power turns out to be a curse more than a blessing for humanity. If left unchecked will end up ruining your own mind and subconsciously you'll start to create abominations like those we saw in this episode (Shun's Dog is probably the most evident example).

Moreover, humanity does not know any way to control this phenomenon and is resorting to murder as soon as the first symptoms are visible in the children's school days.

Shin Sekai Yori

Shun has been the first victim and I wonder if Saki's deduction was correct. If she is the reason of his plight (through that hypnosis she used to recover the cantus), Satoru would be the next one to go...

Now the real question is "Is Shun really dead?". I mean, we still have so many episodes to go (we're not even halfway through the series) and I am skeptical that they'll kill off such an important characters so soon in the story.

The story is narrated by an older Saki and that implies that she'll survive through the whole series, but what about the others?

Yes, this is the beast that killed Ryoko and the other characters in the previous episode. I wonder if they are natural creatures or are created by humans through some technological process.

They look like engineered in order to kill humans, and looks to be quite easy to control and use. However, the adults seems to only have a limited number of them...

Shin Sekai Yori

Next week we'll leave Shun's demise aside and go back into the school where Saki will try to do something about this problematic society.

How will she manage to convince the people around her to "rebel" against the adults? Moreover, aren't the adults right to "kill" the problematic children that risk to destroy the whole human society with their powers?

By the way, I've given a quick read to the manga version and they do give more details about why Maria is supposed to be the "reason for so many deaths" and I hope they'll explore that part of the story here too...

Shin Sekai Yori

Concluding, Shin Sekai Yori continues to be an extremely entertaining anime series, but I really wonder how they are going to fill the many other remaining episodes.

See you soon,

Oh come on of course he's dead.

He blow himself up, there no coming back from that...

I think that Shun was the Kamina//Mami//Sayaka of this series.

He was just a plot device to show us that every character could die at any moment (except for Saki, and Satoru I guess).

I mean, Shun seemed like a dominant character and I thought he would help Saki and Satoru to change their society.

But nope, he's dead. And I have a bad feeling that Maria and Mamoru will be next

I'm still unsure, but yes...the episode was self-explanatory this time around. I wonder if there will be other casualties in this story arc...


Yes, that was my opinion as well. He was the main reasonable character of the team, the so-called LEADER. without him...I wonder how they'll survive. Who can take that role? Saki? Satoru?

Stop! I don't want the poor Maria to die...Mamoru can go though...

Well Satoru already gave them orders in episode 9 so that was probably foreshadowing to show he will take the leader role from Shun.

Also...I don't think Satoru will die because they can't kill BOTH of her potential love interests, right? RIGHT?!

I mean someone needs to hold adult Saki's hand at the end like the ED shows right?

Shun had to die to make way for Saki x Satoru.

And Satoru was the only character with Saki during the war against the rats arc so that makes him as important to the plot as Saki isn't it?

*nods*

*looks away* Do you think that normal reason will work for this series? I'm prepared for anything...even a bloodbath leaving only Saki standing...


Who said that can't be Mamoru?


Yes, but I'm still unsure about what this series is trying to achieve. Too unpredictable...>_<

"I'm still unsure about what this series is trying to achieve. Too unpredictable".

Yeah, first you think Shun will have a big role in the story, especially after all the talking with the library, since he took the things he heard from it very seriously, so you think "Oh, of course he would take it so seriously because he will have a big role in changing the society". But nope, in the end his sole purpose to the story was that he made sure that Saki will listen to the library's words until the end (If you remember Saki and Satoru wanted to stop but Shun made them keep listen to the library until the end) so they will know the truth about their society which triggered the turns of events.

God dammit! I can't relax!

I still can't believe they killed him so early

Yep, that was his main role till now, but I bet that they'll have some other use for him in the future. Maybe as a flashback?

*cries* Don't give up, maybe it's all a fake and he's still alive?!


I only hope they'll leave the poor Maria alone...>_<

"Who said that can't be Mamoru?"

Or Maria...



And despite what Saki said about Maria at the end of episode 2, I always thought Shun would be the more logical choice to turn to the dark side by the end.

But now that he's dead, I won't be surprised if Maria is the true villain of this series.

Think about it. By what Shun said, EVERYONE in their society, especially if their powers are strong, could turn into Karma Demons, and when that priest came to their class, he only looked at Satoru, Maria and Shun.

Meaning Saki and Mamoru are probably in their group, meaning there's a very big chance that either Maria or Satoru (or both of them) could turn into Karma Demons and unlike Shun who didn't want to do any harm and killed himself, they could easily take the other path to the dark side.

You remember how bloodthirsty Satoru seemed to be during episode 6? That could also be foreshadowing for him.

Meaning Saki and Mamoru are probably the weakest in their group*

Maria...Maria...leave alone my LOVELY Maria ok? *cries in pain*

Yep, that's...worrying indeed. But I hope it won't end up with Mamoru and Saki alone surviving the story. It would be too sad...


Maria isn't going dark imho, it's her origin that made her "the living problem" for those people that will get killed in the future...

Oh, Shun....at least he did the right thing till the end instead of listening to his inner desires...

Maria as the cause of "many deaths"!? Now, I would like to see that unfold...

I believe Shun is dead, he even tried suicide and failed. It just seems like a dream world. Maybe it's like an illusion created from Shun's cantus.

I wonder what the elders will think of Saki.. they better leave her alive.
Or if she goes on a blood bath killing off the elders, that will be a sight to with hold

Man i was so mad when they killed shun he was my favorite but if u see in the later episodes he keeps appearing in sakis dreams helping her out telling her stuff that she wanted to know im hopeful that hes still alive im saying that because when he supposedly died they kinda didnt really show him like break to pieces or anything like that im thinking hes in a sleep mode and hes helping saki in her dreams idk if its just coincedence but tis always shun who appears in her dreams i hope hell come outta nowhere and will end up having a fight with whoever becomes a fiend every dam character i pick in a anime always dies lol
