Upcoming supernatural thriller, Shinsekai Yori, has received yet another PV – further spiraling around the seeming distortion in reality which fills the world, as well as the assorted characters to encounter it directly.
The video builds an atmosphere of oddity, or rather, abnormality – it exhibits the realm which serves as the stage of Shinsekai Yori, a place evidently vast with unusual creations, peculiar climate, and essentially, rules of living far from our own. This is of course integral to know as it is how the surroundings treat our characters which determines how they in turn respond or take action as result.
In fact, the PV seems to highlight specifically this. It’s a clip composed of a mixture of intermission featuring the group of friends who play the leading roles – whilst also showing points of them assessing the nature around them, and various incidents in which they come to meet facets of their universe face-to-face. The subsequent fascination stems from the purpose of why they chase a goal, why they move forward – and what is it which precisely drives them to do X against creature Y.
As the characters move through this formula to find, that is where the series’ exquisite flavor will come forward if all goes well. One can already see quite an abundance of personality emanating from the several characters as seen within the PV – and this will definitely be major to note once the series plows more heavier in-depth within its center story.
It goes without saying that the visuals and sound are superb, as with the first PV – yet perhaps the detail most astounding is that this series certainly seems fully true to its name, characters set free within an expansive new world. And of course, the possibilities from there split more than there is atoms in the substratosphere – or said simply, this series legitimately leaves one feeling as if standing on the edge of a void from where life can go anywhere.
Shinsekai Yori is to launch next month – and much excitement already eagerly welcomes it.
