As humans, we don’t exactly know the truth of this world. Really, there’s only so much we can know! Think about it; we don’t even EXACTLY know how the universe started. We have a good idea about it but, honestly, a great deal of this world is but a huge mystery just waiting to be solved. Now what if I was to tell you that the world was an entirely different place before you were born? Not just the way people speak, the way they dress or their mannerisms. I mean ENTIRELY different. Unrecognizably different. Unbelievable different. It would be kind of daunting, right? Damn right! Conspiracy theories pop up all the time nowadays and most of them are thrown out the window labelled ‘silly’ or ‘ridiculous’ but what if some were true? What if the royal family really are a bunch of lizard-people eating our babies? What if the world destroyed itself hundreds of years ago and the life we lead now is just humanity’s attempt at reviving what has been lost for so long? Originally a critically acclaimed science fiction novel, ‘From The New World’ tells a story of the world that is, if you think about it deeply, much like our own. There’s control. There’s corruption. There are skeletons in the closet and they’re all trying to escape, but someone has locked the doors and thrown away the key…for who’s benefit though? Thanks to Hanabee, the Australian Anime distributor, I’ve been given the chance to review the second part of this series’ release and, without giving away TOO much…I couldn’t be more grateful.
