Daaamn you, Shun. You've done a great job of breaking Saki's and my hearts!!
Now we know what is actually happening to karma demon and why is it that many of the animals were transformed so hideously.
God, God, God. Why does it have to be Shun?? It's so heartbreaking to hear his story, not to mention that his parting words to Saki were, "I've always loved you, goodbye." Damn, I hate this kind of parting words; so heartbreaking.
I ship Saki and Shun so I'm really sad that the ship sinks too soon.
The Shinsekai world makes a lot more sense now. It makes a lot of sense that the Bakenezumi and other creatures are the byproduct of subconscious urges, projected outward by cantus users. Connecting societies isolationism with their suppression of the subconscious was brilliant.

And why are you using a sig of Saki's face that time? It breaks my heart all over again.
I'm also curious as to how exactly Shun becomes a karma demon. He is the most calm and collected person among the group, but I guess that also might mean that he's the one who suppressed his emotion the most.
Yeah, I agree that this story seems to have very logical reasons behind everything: how the society works and why it works that way, what is the effect of the society's rules and so on. I guess it teaches us something about society these days too.
This show is growing on me, more and more every week. Episode 11 was incredible, another twist, another logical extension of the plot. I can't believe they erased the very memory of Shun, but replaced him with another student. Not only that, it is not the first time in the series that has happened. Does anyone remember the name of the girl from episode one? The girl struggled with basic cantus, was removed from the group, and never mentioned again. I had completely forgotten about her. Now it seems that was completely deliberate on the writers part. I love this show more and more, as the plot develops.
I can't wait for next week, and the confrontation between Saki and the ethics committee.

So after their weird relationships, the school then sort of designs activities to "force" a heterosexual relationship to preserve the species.
I had actually expected more out of Mamoru. howell.
When the eps started, I felt something was odd until Maria talked of Ryou. God, I almost cried when I realized they've forgotten Shun already! Thankfully, Satoru and Saki, the closest to Shun, still remember parts of him. I would've flip the table if they forgot him too!
So their partners-for-life is decided since they're 14? And it has to be heterosexual? Oh.. okay.
But from what Saki thinks and says to Ryou, if only Shun didn't turn into a karma demon, she would've picked him. Dear God, my heart is breaking all over again.
So, it isn't mentioned but from the scenes, am I right to assume that Saki become Satoru's partner and Maria Mamoru's?
Saki seems to have some kind of weird dream power? Since she can hear Shun talking in her dream. She even sees Subaru there.
I wonder though, how they can alter the memory of so many people? But we know that the process isn't perfect since there are so many holes in the memories.
The fact that Satoru's grandma is the head of the mysterious ethic committee is pretty surprising. I'm getting more curious now. The preview makes me wonder if Saki is going to be asked to do something. They must have realized that Saki isn't the usual type.
If I think about it again, does the ethic committee know the truth behind everything or they just do what their predecessor did? I really want to know this.
Argh~ So many questions.
At the early parts of the anime I really thought it was a Satoru x Saki kind of thing, but, then the BL thing happened, and considering this episode, Satoru still likes guys so, I'm 70% debunking the Satoru x Saki. That ship has sailed.
God, I'm liking this eps more and more. We know more now about the Ethics Committee, Board of Education, Fiends and Karma Demons. The story about boy K was really.. something. I feel sad for Izumi though... Shun shared the same fate as hers.
I think I agree with Satoru's grandma (forgot her name already; how could she stay youthful?) about Saki. She possessed a great mental strength and I do think she can succeed Satoru's grandma. I still don't feel comfortable about the way they keep their society, but I understand that they had no other choice to ensure their safety. Boy K.. killing 1000 people...
I still feel sad about Shun... He will never be remembered.
I don't feel enthralled to watch the next eps though... I don't care pretty much about Mamoru, not to mention I know the spoiler of his fate.
Shun's story was heartbreaking, especially now that we know the truth about karma demonsQuote:
I'm curious what happens next, especially after what Asahina said about society only being as strong as the weakest link. I'd like to know more about how events have effected Mamoru, clearly the most sensitive member of the group.Quote:
And he had to see what his powers did to the people and the pet he loved...
Does anybody else still watch this series? This thread is eerily silent.
The new eps is just.. whoa. The queerats are definitely suspicious and I agree with Saturo's suspicion. As for Maria and Mamoru... since I know the spoiler already it's just... argh. I wonder if the faceless boy in Saki's dream is Shun?
The last part of the eps is just.. (again) whoa. They slept together?!
I'm excited about the next eps though, since they will be 26! The preview looks promising. Satoru grows to be a gorgeous man. Saki is beautiful too. There will be 12 years time skip so I wonder what will happen and why the time skip occurs. It just feel a tad bit depressing that now it's only the two of them left. *sigh*
Don't you mean Saki being more suspicious ???Quote:
I find her much more doubtfull to what queerats might be capable off, and that Saturo is just taking everything(that Saki is worried about) into consideration.
Besides, I see Saturo more like a guy who lost someone dear to him(Shun), and at the same time Saki like that as well(Maria), so it's no wonder to me that they both ended up becoming a couple.
Yeah, you don't have to tell me. Anway let me tell you how my pairings looked like, you won't believe it, but nothing came out as I thought:Quote:
- my first paring would look like this: Maria x Saturo, coz to me it looked like Maria had fun looking at Saki interacting with Saturo
- my second paring was at that time due to seducing eyes from both parties: Saki x Shun
- Mamoru at first to me looked like a guy, who would in the future become a player (admired by all the girls, but only had fun with them...)
Now it's like the world is crumbling (as the title says: "From the new World") and my every plan for paring, I first created, has gotten instead "splashed down the river"...
Still, due to unexpected circumstances that happened to all of our main characters, I can not blame them...
Wow, it never occored to me, you might be right. Nonetheless, my first impression was that this was Saki's subconsciousness or her evil self, maybe even karma demon or something created by queerats with the knowledge of the same thing like minoshiro before, but Shun definitly did not come to my mind...Quote:
I didn't notice this when I first saw the trailer but don't worry you didn't spoil me, I noticed it from comments on other forums soon after I finished watching currently the last episode out. At first, I was: "Is this for reall now ???", but with a time skip like that again, it is to be expected.Quote:
Totally the same, but I must admit it, what I hope for is "So that at least Maria comes back alive". Can you imagine her being jealous of Satoru all of a sudden, and Satoru looking for another boy again(). To tell you the truth no reall movie, cartoon or anything shocked me as the fact that Satoru ended up at some point in relationship with Shun(that was the turning point of this story in my opinion !!!), although later I realized I can't blame "him neither Saki" for developing feelings to their own gender, why their gens were literally "tampered" from birth, after all.Quote:
Haaa, if only there would be another season...Quote:
Let me clarify something, you are not the only one who hardly anticipates the next episode...
A man is a man for me, so I see no change for Satoru, he should still be strong, clever and friendly. So unless he starts disregarding other people's opinion what is annoying to me, than I'm OK with it. On the other hand what I'm really looking forward to, am excited and definitly want to see is Saki's new sexy body...Quote:
I hope next episode comes out "pronto" !!!
Just my gut feeling, but something tells me queerats would use/kill either Maria or Mamoru, and with that a disaster would be coming upon humans once again. The time skip might be because queerats have been prepering their plan all this time. Queerats looked really suspicious to me, right from the very begining, what about you ???Quote:

Actually since the first time, aside from Saki and Shun as a possible couple (that seems obvious due to Saki's behavior around Shun) I can Saki and Satoru together, since in their childhood, they often fought (and notice that Satoru only picked fight with Saki). But then, things happened. *shrug*
Though I still don't know how things get to that point, but I do agree that it might have something to do with the queerats.
Well, because of that I also missuderstood you "yukihime03" at the end, and thought your country must be harsh not allowing to have kids even when 26 years old, like Saki...
PS: On a side note let me also point out that for a while temperamental Saki(already as all grown up) looked to me incredibly cute/sexy from 2.00 minutes and up to 2.20 minutes...
About ep 18 trailer, I would like to ask anyone here to perhaps spoil me a little, if possibile. I'm really interested and want to know if either Mamoru and/or Maria helped to anialate Giant Hornet colony. Additionally, I also want to know if supreme commander Kuroumaru was really killed or was he perhaps able to survive somehow, why he was my favorite queerat / beast like character untill now.
Of course now I also have many, many more questions about how everything will go on, but I don't want to be spoiled to much...
