Shin Sekai Yori Episode 5


What the...what is happening with this episode? So many questions...I get that there's the bakenezumi war between the native tribe and the invasive species, but I guess a lot happened. What happened to Shun and the others? Were they captured by the other tribe of bakenezumi? Will they become enemies in the future? Or are they just still out there? I suppose the safer theory is that they're still out there and will join up later.

I wonder if we even have confirmation on the "bakenezumi are human" theory...Satoru killed that first one with an egg and didn't seem to have any problem...but I dunno...I feel like they emphasized that Saki and Satoru weren't watching when he blew up the second set of bakenezumi with the torch.

Speaking of which, Satoru proved himself to be actually useful by not whining about having no power, instead actually trying to fight with what's around him...crafty guy. Hope he's not one of the people to die...kind of higher probability, since the useless ones usually survive. I'm also not sure about the significance of showing the queen...was it just so Squealer would be saved by Saki? I also don't know how to interpret the end of the episode...was it a cave-in or actually a creature or something? And why does the preview focus so much on Satoru? Is his life in danger as I've theorized? So confused...

    well, if you take the square root of the function and then run a deterministic algorithm, then the answer is clear...

    I don't see the problem...in this scenario, she wouldn't die so easily, right? :D

    The opposite, she would be a target for the main heroine Saki and thus easy to kill off...:|

    let see well first i don't think all of them got captured maybe some got but highly doubt all of them got captured well the series is piling up more and more question but maybe the bakenezumi was a human might just be a theory a wrong one but i guess we will know more later...the tarantula is probably trying to start a rebellion that is my theory and for that they need resource or they just are an aggressive species and thinking of invading anything that is possible to invade they don't seem to share the bakenezumi belief of evolve human as god and have no problem attacking them...satoru is rather smart for a kid i give my praise to him but nonetheless even he would have trouble without his force...speaking of which i wonder how did human get their power anyway and what are these "Demon" that the human with pk afraid of are demon some kind of super powerful race or is it just a story highly doubt it maybe demon were the one that is responsible for human sudden evolution maybe their power is a method to adapt of the danger?the series been piling up question we found out the base of the utopia which was the tyrant and dark ages and sudden boost on power due to adaptation but what cause human mutation into growing power anyway...

    you think they're still roaming around out there? but where and doing what?

    Satoru is the most useful so far...I guess someone has to be able to keep it together.

    it's very possible that all of these other "races" or "species" are just other forms of humans, twisted by brainwash

    it is either trying to find saki and satoru,or being hunted down by tarantula colonies but haven't been capture yet or going back to the village for help...

    well adapt or die satoru is smart enough to do something even though he is too brash and hot headed but it work saki balance him out as a partner which gave satoru voice of reasoning...

    brainwash?brainwash won't change appearance or ability it is either mutation of evolution of maybe human or other race maybe they adapt due to the extreme condition that they become like this such as the ballon dog either way the one that i believe in is that the pseudo-epser human and human were one before one mutated with power and then causing ruckus which made other species adapt to survive the environment and start changing into something weird as for the bakenezumi they might be human that don't have power that got branches off from human into bakenezumi due to mutation or different environment that cause them to adapt into rat like creature...

    doubt they would go back to the village, but I wonder how they'll meet up again

    suppose that works

    it can change how people appear to others, though

    either in prison of the tarantula colonies or meet while running away from them like in most scenario...

    well even if you can change you are perceive by other you can't change the effect you done for example the ballon dog are you telling me that a race that can self destruct like that is human?and not to mention change your biology too?that ballon dog have bone that can explode highly doubtful they are human...

    there's always the possibility it has something to do with the psychic powers...I never assume with this stuff

    there physics power limitation is to control something how could they change biology with it ?well my case is that brainwashing is impossible and they are evolve of some race the pk limitation clearly stated sure it is powerful but not enough to alter thing like that it is not reality warping you know...

    I'd say anything's possible with brainwashing...we're pretty impressionable as a species

    brainwashing in my opinion is a good idea to control someone and seize power but to alter biology with brainwashing...the problem with it is that even if you perceive them differently they are still limited to what a human can do copying the ballon dog is impossible and if you think that mind explaining the way?

    by the way completely unrelated but mind accepting my friend request on steam?my account is xxxllllxxxllllxxxllll the comment box gotten a bit overcrowded sometime and i prefer not to spam...

    it's more about changing a person's perception of what happened, as opposed to changing biology...make their mind convince them it's reality

    oh that was you? haha I had no idea, so I wasn't paying attention to that one

    but didn't the ground get destroyed due to the ballon dog and it create a large crater?and what reason would the human need to do suicide attack like that...speaking of which how did brainwash get here...and there is absolutely no trace on brainwashing so far on the series except with the library...

    for all we know, the blowdog is actually an archaic mine or claymore that they "see" as a blowdog

    i thought they didn't have that kind of technology due to the war between pseudo-human and human bring back the dark ages...
