So we’ve only two episodes left of Shin Sekai Yori now, and I still have no idea what will come to pass as the series wraps itself up! Of course, I haven’t expended much effort theorising about what might happen, as it feels as though whatever does happen, it won’t be much of a cause for celebration!! Even if Saki and Satoru do manage to stop the fiend and survive, so many people have died now- Inui, Maria, Mamoru, Tomiko, Saki’s parents, countless villagers- it will feel as though their achievement has come a little too late… But what else can we expect from SSY? This is a show about the disease known as man-kind. We’ve seen over and over how we corrupt everything that is around us (albeit not always consciously), and how that has spelled our defeat, so a happy ending in which everything is resolved seems impossible, we cannot escape our destructive nature, you know?
