Plus, they even said in the anime that instead of naked molerats it would have been better if humans experimented with meerkats because they look less ugly (or something along the lines of that).

The Meerkats are represented to look like naked mole rats yes. 

But that is all part of the metaphor. The 'gods' experimenting and making these 'meerkats' all of which are based on possible experimentation.

The meerkats represents us; it represents the human race. The dialogue on making meerkats less ugly is in itself part of the metaphor of God creating humans on Earth and that the 'human form' people we see in the anime to be the Gods themselves

Sure, whatever.

Don't care about metaphors like these in any case.

Y U NO

 

They make up the best parts of anime's!!!

 

Without these metaphors. SSY is pretty much .......very Valvravy. Witht he difference being that Valvrave's metaphors suck a lot and are very overt.

Nope, I care about tension, characters, plot, and art mainly.
Tension is really high here, which is good. Characters are good, but perhaps slightly on the boring side; definitely not shallow though.
Art is top notch. Seriously, it's the best I've seen in a long while.
Plot is complex, yet without any apparent large plotholes. Produces quite a bit of tension, and is so far not that predictable. I was able to predict a few things, but not as much as usual.

It's always a plus in my books if an anime manages to make me think about the deeper meaning of the things that are happening :|

Finished watching Shinsekai Yori.

It was excellent. Then ending was good as well. Like any show it wasn't perfect, but I'd honestly put it in the highest tier of stuff I've watched.
It's a solid 10/10. It moved me, it amused me, and it kept me at the edge of my chair for the majority of the sitting.

The characters had no particular annoying traits, seemed realistic, and the major characters had deep personality traits. Like any good show (imo) the villains turn out to have a perfectly solid reasoning for their actions, and I was able to emphasize with them quite well.

The plot was set in a post-apocalyptic dystopia, which always needs some good justification of how the situation came into being. They did this well without hindering the plot, or seeming unrealistic (i.e. giving room for huge plot holes)

The art was top notch. They eyes were a bit too diabetic, but it didn't really bother me at all.

The plot was good. It had a clear and constant pace and covered a lot of ground; it was paced perfectly for a 25 episode anime, a lot of stuff happened but the pace wasn't so high that too much detail was lost or confusion was caused. The beginning may have been a bit slow on the other hand.
It had some interesting themes, and caused a good amount of tension. Unfortunately, some of the tension was horror-like (i.e. like the one you feel in horror movies), which to me always feels a bit forced; kinda annoys me when watching it, but it was only prevalent for 2-3 episodes.
The ending was good too. I wasn't really left with any burning questions, and there was no Deus Ex going on either.

Not anime, but if you haven't read the manga "Heat", it's pretty good.

I agree with many of the points smily_headphones1.gif

Great show. Art style was very good. But animation takes SERIOUS dips at times

Wait wut..? I thought you finished it long ago....

 

What bothered me the most near the end was that

all the build-up to finding the vial of anthrax did nothing.

It's warmer in Germany than in HK?
Sure, why not? :|

I haven't watched any, but these six (or five?) episodes in Black Lagoon blew me away!
I really do like the Yakuza games btw.
