Shinsekai Yori: Defying




With all of my soul (even if it hurts) 
I'll water broken seeds of a dream, 
(and even though tremblingly) 
I'll smash away all of 
your hesitations. 

–– Someday I'll grasp the sky.

"Shinsekai Yori" pulls a lot on my heart strings. Also known as "From the New World", it's a 2008 produced anime by Kodansha and definitely a series worth watching. It's visually stunning, the art is beautiful and the story is smart, poetic, bittersweet (I awww'd, I cried, I screamed) and in the very end –– insightful, maybe even a bit comforting. I am super glad my friend & cosplaypartner Pummelpanda suggested to me this anime and ultimately got me into cosplaying it with her together. It was all in all a wonderful, very emotional project for me & it takes a special place in my heart.

The sewing process … oh well. Let's just say I'm not that satisfied with my crafting & sewing work here all in all since I still suck at time management, so the whole process was very stressed, but I enjoyed it immensely to wear & shoot it with my friends.  (Also loved all the discussion rounds about this anime with them) Now to my thoughts on Saki. Honestly, she seemed kinda plain to me in the beginnig, but the longer I thought about her actions and reactions, the more I started to love her. I even go as far as to say that meanwhile, I really wish i could be a bit more like Saki… You see, instead of avoiding any deeper feelings, she embraces the sadness & pain of life, grows & gets better because of it ……she refuses to give in, to abandon hope –– she rises, lives on & tries to make the world a better place. Ah …dude I am so in love with her whole being.

So yeah. So much from my part.
I know this anime isn't very well-known, but I hope you enjoy nevertheless.
