Fall is here.  The weather is getting colder, the leaves are changing, and the days are getting shorter.  With fall comes another new anime season.  Last fall we were treated to a great season.  To name a few, we had shows such as Fate/Zero, Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai, and Un-Go.  The 2011 fall season also had some big disappointments, Guilty Crown to name one.  The 2012 fall season is looking very promising, there are already 8 series I want to watch but I probably won’t be able to watch them all right away.  My third pick for the 2012 fall season is Shin Sekai Yori also known as in English “From the New World.”  The Shin Sekai Yori anime is based on a 2008 novel by Yusuke Kishi.  A-1 Pictures is the studio behind the animation.  Here is an abbreviated plot synopsis that only covers things that are known in the first episode.  I spoiled a little of the show for myself by reading Anime News Network and MyAnimeList synopsizes.
