Shin Sekai Yori - Character Discussion - Saki Watanabe

The purpose of this thread is to provide a place to discuss all things Saki Watanabe related.
To keep the discussion enjoyable for all Shin Sekai Yori fans, please follow the guidelines below and stay on-topic!
Note: Please don't use this for the specifics (i.e. episode, chapter, game, etc. discussion) there are other threads for that stuff.
Thread Guidelines
  • No campaigning!
    No "hate" or "xyz must die" posts. Discuss why you do or don't like characters without whinging and whining or blatantly campaigning for your favourite.

  • Be polite to your fellow forum members.
    Do not insult or harass other members for their likes and dislikes. Do not take it so seriously that you end up in an argument with another forum member because they express a fondness for a character you loathe. Discussion and good spirited banter are always welcome, but harassing people will not be tolerated.

  • Discuss, don't chat.
    Please remember that AnimeSuki is a discussion forum, not a chat room, there is a difference. If you wish to chat, then please make use of our IRC channel.

  • Have fun, but post intelligently.
    It's great to have fun, but please try your best to add substance to what you post and make your thoughts interesting for the generation of fans that will follow after you’re long gone and on to watching some other series.

  • Use Spoiler tags!
    Spoilers are allowed, but they must be enclosed in spoiler tags clearly marked with a proper title. Failure to do this can result in a BAN.

    • Adding a Spoiler tag:
      Just highlight your spoiler and click the button found on the "Quick Reply" and "Reply to Thread" forms. Make sure that you include a title for the spoiler!

    • Please use the Report button if you see any spoilers:
      Click the button found to the left of the post, just under the poster's avatar. Using the Report button is anonymous and helps the Moderators to locate and deal with problems quickly.

    • Posting prohibited spoilers may result in a ban.
      Note: Reporting a post does not mean the poster will be banned instantly. The Moderators will use bans if warnings are repeatedly ignored.

I'm glad that Shin Sekai Yori will cover the life of Saki and friends up through the age of 26, because then she'll be older than me and I won't have to feel dirty for being attracted to her.

A person at another forum said that he thinks Saki is repressing a violent nature. What do you fellows think?

Well... I don't quite understand what's going on, but based on Episode 4, it seems she tried something back at the temple with the old priest.
Don't know if it's real, a nightmare or if she did that on purpose...

I figured that was part of the test -- before you let the kids graduate elementary school, gotta make sure the conditioning works -- and they probably blocked the memory afterwards.

That was to check to see if the feedback was working. The one that kicks in if you try to hurt or kill another human.

She does, but their society was designed to foster promiscuity, so she would sleep with anyone and everyone. I'm pretty sure it's Shun she actually has feelings for.

She has feelings for Shun, but she almost had sex with Satoru because they have been trained (psychologically) to have sex when under emotional pressure.

Having sex like monkeys might seem like fun () but it also means that sex gets disconnected from the concept of romance, and that kinda sucks.

I know I know, I'm a party pooper. Sorry about that. lol

Kazu's an old-fashioned romantic. :p

I think the prospect of having threesomes with Saki and Maria would make everything all better agree with you, though. One thing I'll be interested in seeing throughout the story is the effect that this particular aspect of their society has upon the characters, and see which members of the leading five embrace it and which ones reject it.

I cthink the fact that Saki and Satoru are always so antagonistic, at least on the surface, makes this fact seem so jarring.

Does the promiscuity also apply to married people? I mean thinking about that gives me headaches.

It is supposed to feel jarring, horribly jarring. It shows how different their world is from ours.

I'm always impressed when shows are able to convey the intended effect, it's a mark of a good show. It also makes it harder to watch without cringing but not in a bad way.

From my limited knowledge and understanding, Saki admires Satoru and cynically put, would do anything to become his first priority. That of course in a liberated environment, does not mean that she wouldn't offer her body to the rest of the people she likes for their common satisfaction... both of these are in accordance to that chimpanzee social structure, and unlike inherently violent and selfish animals like wolves and men.
