What a cliffhanger. Well, I'm pretty sure Saki will be ok because MC plot armor but will she be able to save Shun? We'll see...

Pretty dramatic episode in general. I liked it.

Great episode - and say whatever you want about the animation* even this time there were some very good and evocative stills which were used to great effect. I particularly liked these:

*OK, last time the animation was really crappy, but I survived that one episode of Kemonozume that must have been animated by a single person under half a day, I'll survive anything...

Fucking awesome. 10/10.

Chills the whole way through. And the fucking title screen came up, ending the PROLOGUE. Holy shit.

Is Shun the Lich King now?

Saki went full Splinter Cell. Goddamn, girl; you make men want to abandon their waifus.

Shinsekai just got truly real.

Well!

Episode 9 was certainly a return to form, in my opinion. I found myself experiencing the same set of emotions that I did with the first few episodes. It certainly helps that the animation didn't appear to be nearly as derpy as it has been recently. The shot of the moon at 19:38 and the use of flickering firelight on the trees was particularly well done.

That being said, I was a little bit confused about something so I hope someone can help me out so I better understand exactly what I saw.

People ask all the time in the Suggestions forum for horror anime. Might this one qualify? This whole episode was rather creepy.

Sometimes the soundtrack in this show is a bit overwrought, especially in the scene where Saki prepares to leave. Still I liked this episode more than most so far. The direction in the sequence where Saki and Satoru look for Shun leapt pretty quickly from one weird scene to another. I guess we're expected to fill in the blanks. That seems the modus operandi of Shin Sekai Yori pretty much from the start.

I presume given the level of stress both girls were under a bonobo event took place soon after Maria's arrival. I'm glad they didn't make a big deal of it, though they do like those giant facial closeups, don't they?

oh wow that cliffhanger ending was heart stopping and can't wait for next week.

Saki started to remember what I assume to be one of her siblings.

Shun and his entire neighborhood has just been whipped form the face of the earth.

Saki gears up and goes to investigate Pinewind one more time on her own and runs into an unexpected guess.

Anyway it looks like this episode confirmed it's openly forbidden to speak about those who go missing. Which is why no one ever tried to think about where they went.

Thank you. That sounds . . . much less complicated than I thought For some reason I thought the streamers in combination with the tree was the Holy Barrier rather than the streamers themselves. I suppose it's because they had already passed so many (at the river and at the entrance to the forest) that the third set of streamers didn't strike me as especially special.

To do justice to the novel I think it needs at least 36 episodes in the first place. But I think this episode is most successfully made into anime so far. At least there is nothing omitted I noticed which is neccessary for the story and there is nothing misleading or confusing.

I guess the animation can be made cheaply that way.

I don't mind the frequent close-ups as long as the faces aren't wonky. When the faces are wonky and off-model it just rubs salt in the wound, haha. Thankfully this episode seemed to feature less of that than the last few (at least to my eyes).

The first black and yellow ones are cordon ropes.

What an intense, compelling episode, right all the way to that 'holy sh -' ending. I don't know if Shin Sekai Yori can be classified as horror, but this episode had some unsettling moments, such as the ghostly shadow of Maria at Saki's window, Saki's 'decayed-like' memories of her sister, and Saki's elongated shadow while she was standing amidst dead trees, holding a torch.

Other than that, the animation was much better this episode. The preview's visuals remind me of Madoka Magica, for some reason. I hope Shun isn't dead yet...

Those beasts/cats doesn't look that frightening at all. Maybe Shun's necklace will help save Saki. I hope Shun is alive too. He is the only person who can wreck chaos into this "orderly" society and make this whole series slightly more interesting. However, I am afraid Shun is probably dead.

Edit: Oh and I like the ideological of killing people so people don't kill each other. How do they even come up with something like that?

What cliffhanger... either Shun saves Saki, and becomes a karma-demon or Satoru does so and gets possessed My money is on the first, despite Saki's foreshadowing at the end of the 5th episode.

Background art was really good this time, like the first few episode. Character designs and animation better then the last episode, but still there are problems... not so many though.

Best thing is that direction and storytelling has improved a lot since episodes 5-7.

No, please not that!!! If that happens, I'll boycott this.

I worst thing I could think of is Shun's turning into a "cat." And its Saki's unconditional love will lift the curse... Sweet!!!!
