Shinsekai Yori, an upcoming anime with heavy supernatural elements, has unleashed a fresh key visual – effortlessly making itself out to be superior to its horrible manga, as well as the lackluster industry in general.
Forgetting the manga, or even the novel of this series, the anime certainly looks to have a very unorthodox perspective of delivery – the preview video for the series was certainly phenomenal, and one reason as to why it’s so blatantly of a polished caliber is that there’s an expertly executed abstract element to it. And in fact, similar can be seen with this key visual – with one of the most instantly notable facets being that while it of course makes the focal point the female farthest to the right, the heroine, others are not forgotten.
Spotlight being distributed amongst the characters as this, one can see that indeed, they will all have their own crucial roles to fulfill – and recalling the PV, there certainly was a lot of camera shifting.
Yet moving onward, the key visual has some rather brazen abnormalities to it – this otherworldly mode of illustration is not often seen. Value is nearly absent, yet everyone is seemingly shaded over to begin with – the color palette is dark, contrasting the void of white which surrounds the characters. Despite the smiles, it certainly looks as if they’re in the process of embarking on a journey which holds nothing of good tidings – seeming as if they’re heading towards the darkness unwittingly, which would indeed be rather unfortunate.
Then again, the PV made clear that this was definitely no joyous tale – and if the series goes down some muddled routes upon its launch, surely none should be surprised.
