The release of this episode concludes the 6-month ride of Shinsekai Yori! An what a great ride it has been. The adaptation could have been better (at least, that’s what all the novel readers have been telling me), but the story has been so fantastic throughout that I can safely say it’s one of the best series I’ve had the opportunity to watch and work on.

An inconsistency you will notice in this episode is that the Fiend is now referred to as a girl (the Fiend was male in the novels). We’ll of course fix the previous episodes accordingly for the batch.

This project would not have been possible without the efforts of the stellar team on this show. Here’s what they have to say about the project!

fnord (Translator/Editor/Typesetter): Currently having fun in Japan…
valerauko (Translator): It was really nice to work on. I loved the novels great deal and the anime kept most of that charm too. Too bad there’ll never be a second season.
lygerzero0zero (TLC): It was a lot of fun working through the translational challenges the story presented and seeing scenes I’d read come to life. The books were still better though.
fgghjjkll (Timer): The show had its ups and downs, and although I generally did not like it, it had its moments. The thanks I get from timing this show each week motivates me to wake up early every weekend (though I make fnord really mad most weeks), so thanks for your support.
ar (Encoder/Typesetter/Handyman): Had a great time working on it, and had fun with everyone throughout. Was a good series and one of the better ones in the last couple of years.
Raze (QC): Simply fantastic to work on, especially with such talented people.

Hopefully the batch work for this won’t take too long, but seeing how unpredictable my schedule these days has become, I’ll stop short of making any promises. In case you missed it, we are doing the BDs for this, but again no promises on when they’ll be released.

Thanks for following us for this show, and hopefully we’ll see you guys again next season!

98 Thoughts on “From the New World – 25 (END)

  1. A pretty good series overall. Though, I’m still puzzled by Kiroumaru’s actions. There was really no need for him to assist Saki in defeating the fiend. His primary reason for going to Tokyo the first time was in search of weapons of mass destruction to wipe out the humans due to fear of his colony being massacred on a whim. He backed down simply because he wasn’t able to find any and the success rate of such a rebellion would be low. Now that humans are on the verge of destruction with no means of fighting the fiend, the queerats could have easily replaced them as the dominant species on the planet. Yet he chose to assist them in killing the fiend. He did manage to ensure the safety of his queen but for how long no one knows. However by doing so, the original source of his fears still remain. Humans can still wipe out whole colonies based off “entirely obscure reasons.” It seems illogical for him to help the humans if you think about it from the perspective of the queerat species as a whole.

    Well, whatever. Still a pretty decent series if you don’t take the finer details into account.

  2. Kiroumaru thinks Yakomaru’s methods are hypocritical, selfish and wrong. He definitely thinks there is no need to change as Saki mentioned.

  3. plus Yakomaru almost wiped his colony.

    Thank you so much for subbing this great show so consistently, and thank you for loving it too and continuing to work on it all the same even through all the… amusing (?) table-flipping by the watchers. I actually enjoyed seeing your occasional jokes about that on release posts quite a bit. Great job!

  7. @Sushi

    As usual, it was implied. Kiroumaru preferred having his colony be destroyed by the humans than become the slaves of Yaromaru and his new ways. Then at some point he realized Saki would protect his colony if he asked her.

    I can’t thank you enough for subbing this. Ever since the previews I had been looking forward to this show. When I heard you were picking it up, I was elated. I had high expectations for your subs and this show, and (having not read the novels myself) was not disappointed in the slightest. I suppose that I should now read the book and see how it compares.

  10. Solinus on March 23, 2013 at 10:32 pm said:

    In my book, Shinsekai Yori is second only to Fate/Zero for best anime of 2012 and I appreciate it very much that I could enjoy it with your great subs, UTW.

  11. EcchiSkecchi on March 23, 2013 at 10:33 pm said:


    Now I’ll marathon this series.

  12. Really great series and thanks for the subs. otsukaresama!

  13. Wait, wait, so you tell me the death feedback only applies to queerats??? Then shouldn’t the fiend got killed by it already when the Robber Fly Colony defeated Giant Hornet Colony!??! I thought they’re using the fiend to kill queerats??

  14. It’s been 6 months, Christ, where’s the time gone?

    Thanks for the subs, one of the most enjoyable things I’ve watched in a very long time, despite the dubious animation quality, the story told was gripping enough to keep me eagerly anticipating each release – all thanks to the translations you provide.

  15. Good story. Sometimes rough to watch, but purposefully. Thanks for subbing this, you guys rock.

  16. @Indie
    The child only used Cantus to disarm the opposing bakenezumi. They were actually killed by Squealer’s soldiers, not by the child. That was actually a clue we had all along– remember, a big deal was made about the state of the weapons implying that they hadn’t actually been used in battle. Cantus was used in the battle, but if we hd been alert enough, we would have realized that Cantus was not used directly to do the killing.

    Have the novels been translated somewhere? Can anyboyd please provide links?

  18. The first two chapters were translated by a fansub group named Aidoru, but they don’t intend to translate any more of it. As far as I know, there is no official English translation yet.

    Here’s the page with links to download the translation of the first two chapters:

    I may disagree with the author’s opinion but I have to say that was the most entertaining way to get across one’s view of abortion I have ever seen.

  28. Thanks so much for subbing this series with such high quality!!

    But i’m still having trouble understanding how “Power of imagination is what changes everything” fit into the series. Does anyone have an idea???

  29. Thanks for your wonderful work, UTW!

    thanks for the subs UTW, was truly an epic series.

    Btw if anyone’s interested in regards to the orgininal novel being translated (non-fan sub)

    give this link a look at!.

    You’re watching the wrong show if you want people to watch people stand around waxing poetic about human will overcoming all obstacles.

    They’re psychics. Visualizing what they want to accomplish is just a way of making it easier for them to use their powers.

    The show is basically:
    “The Great Queerat Slave Rebellion Against Their Psychic Future Human Overlords.”

  34. @sharm
    Although on second though, I suppose “imagination” refers thematically to Squealer’s revolution and desire for reform.

    Likewise, it may indicate a hope to reform their society into one that is less oppressive.

  35. FuenteFOX on March 25, 2013 at 6:51 am said:

    I may have missed something (and I presume it was covered in the novels) but…

    If the “Fiend” was Maria and what-his-face’s kid and she was taken shortly after birth to the point that she believed herself to be a queerat would that not imply that Squealer and his colony of queerats had something to do with what I assume would be the un-natural deaths of both Maria and whats-his face? I’ll grant that Maria could have died during childbirth, but whats-his face surely wouldn’t have abandoned the kid. So why the civility at the end towards Squealer? I’d have burned his ass down right after the fiend died.

    Secondly I could see how a pool of labor would be necessary for humans in a semi-post-apocalyptic world, but with cantus even something like building a house would surely take no more than a day for one or two cantus users. Why keep the queerats around in the first place when their labor is no longer necessary and few people know that they descended from humans, let alone after the botched revolution. Promise to Kiroumaru aside I’d have burned all their asses down right after the fiend died.

    Lastly, as the two great heroes of the Great Queerat War of 245 wouldnt Saki and other dude be in a position to change the views and ways of the cantus using world. I mean right before the SHTF (shit hit the fan, for those not in the know) they were both of a pretty good mindset to say F-this village! It had taken Saki’s sister and robbed her of any memories she had of her, and taken away the memories of her first love. Then on the heels of that it robbed her of her best friend because she had to run away to take care of weak-dude because they were about to 86 (kill) his ass too. The village collectively hid what could have been useful knowledge and the adults disposed of kids like I do a can of soda that has lost its fizz. If the death feedback is something that the mind can control I’d have found a way to control it then I’d have made the village reform it’s ways and bend to my will or I’d burn their asses down right after the fiend died.

    But alas even with their “enlightenment” Saki and other-dude decide to reintegrate into society and become a part of the system so they can have a kid and raise murder-kittenz. Perhaps in 12 or 13 years their murder-catz can hunt down their kid’s friends when they start to go all apeshit, forcing two of them to go on the lamb eventually spawning another fiend to be raised by the surviving queerat colonies. Sunrise, Sunset.The circle is complete.

    Prior beefs aside this was a great show, I’d probably say somewhere in my top 50 anime. The animation was pretty good, the music was great, story was original, characters… meh-ish, but overall I’d say a 8.7/10. It was riveting enough that I eagerly awaited most of the episodes and only occasionally wanted to punch Saki in the throat.Thanks to the great folks at UTW and I guess I’ll fork over the cash when its available on BD here in the states.

  36. Thank you for doing a great job with subbing this. It was a classy act on all fronts.

    I don’t think I’ve been so excited by an anime since my very first one. I’d nominate it for AotY 2012 if there was such a thing. And lose, judging by the sales. But at least the “Western” ratings have gone quite a bit up (looking at you, MAL). Yay.

    I’m going to try and find how much was adapted, but in case I fail, I’d appreciate if someone clarified what was meant by “too bad there won’t be another season” – is this due to poor sales or have they driven themselves into an adaptation corner or there is nothing else to cover?

  37. Tekira on March 25, 2013 at 8:50 pm said:

    @ what_the_f:

    Apart from the case whether it’s possible to give humans without Cantus death feedback, it would have been useless. If both parties can’t kill each other, they’re equal. But the Cantus users still wanted to rule over the ‘normal’ humans (so those scientist guys weren’t so peacefull after all).

  38. Oskuro on March 26, 2013 at 1:32 am said:

    people saying “too bad there wont ever be a 2nd season” is due to the poor sales… but in reality there is no more story, the novel ends more or less the same way the anime ended… the author is focusing on other works right now, so nobody’s sure if he will even release more SSY in the future

  39. slivers7 on March 26, 2013 at 2:31 am said:

    Thanks for bringing this series to an awesome end!
    Oddly, it felt like the first and last episodes were of higher animation quality than most of the rest of the episodes in between…

    A spoily question, though: Did Saki perish from death feedback, after relieving what remained of Squealer from eternal hell, and burning the remains? Like, because she recognized his existence as human, or some such?

    Otherwise, I don’t get why the closing scene, with all of them as little kids, was outlined in flames…

    man, your team is hardcore, like gods of fansubbing. no wonder there is no doubt that UTW can handle SSY. I hope it is not too late to say my ‘Thank you’.

  42. No anime to look forward to Friday night. 🙁
    Thanks again for doing such a great job!

    I’m a professional translator/subtitler myself (though I don’t translate anime), but these subs are just otherworldly. Ultra props to you, guys! Keep up the great job! 😛

    Don’t mean to be rude to anyone, but UTW > Commie > Live-eviL.

  44. Finally had time to watch this. I’m sad that this series was so predictable (pretty sure it was on purpose), but the truth is that it doesn’t matter how predictable a story is. The enjoyment is in the journey, not the end or even the destinations. And I definitely enjoyed this. Of course, I couldn’t say too much before it ended since I’d piss everyone off if I spoiled the story for people (I haven’t read the novel and I’m sure others have not either, but as people seem to have noticed, they gave a lot of clues about what would happen in later episodes quite early on).

  45. NoumiSeijiFTW on April 6, 2013 at 2:22 am said:

    Any ETA on the batch? If it’ll take a while, I have no choice but to download the episodes individually. I really want to watch this show. It seems DEEP

  46. LOl SIN cut your bullshit. Nothing in the early episodes hinted at the ending, that is, assuming you know how evolution works. As evolution always favours the fittest, one would assume those without Cantus could have easily been exterminated centuries ago. The only thing the early plot does is that it does not deny such a possibility of them being the queerats. Just like it doesn’t deny that they weren’t all exterminated in the past.

    A argument that doesn’t invalidate an option doesn’t immediately have to support it either. Such a reasoning is simply absurd… but once again, many people still believe in Creationism even though it was already proven to be false…

  47. BillHive on May 1, 2013 at 3:41 am said:

    That’s what I love about this sub group, they translate wish-fulfillment and character marketing shows (which is expected as those type of shows seem to be the most popular among anime fans nowadays) but when they translate a show that deviates from that, they choose the best shows.

    Kiroumaru’s decision has nothing to do with him favoring the humans or thinking that Yakomaru’s revolution is wrong, stop being so ego-centric you damn [insert you ethnicity/race here]. If the situation was different, he would had likely love to bring the revolution himself. His seemly traitorous actions against his race were all done in favor of his colony. Saki promised to spare his colony and he felt he could trust her. He didn’t have much choice cuz it is highly unlikely that Yakomaru would spare his colony, they were enemies and his colony refused to abandon the hold ways and adopt Yakomaru’s more democratic system.

    @Indie If you watch carefully you will find hints or pretty much direct implications that the “fiend” was only used to render Kiroumaru’s army weaponless and defenseless. It was Yakomaru’s army that deal the killing blows. The death feedback can still take some effect if you are aware that you were indirectly responsibility for the deaths but, as Saki showed, you can prevent it by convincing yourself otherwise.
