A millennium from now, in Japan, exists a utopia. The Protagonist, Saki Watanabe, lives in an idyllic village barred from the outside world. Her world is ruled by the people who possess the "gods' power" of psychokinesis. After finally obtaining her own powers, Saki enters the Zenjin Academy to train along with five other children: Satoru Asahina, Maria Akizuki, Mamoru Itou, Shun Aonuma, and Reiko Amano. Not all is as it seems, however. In this utopian village, strange rumors about a monstrous cat that abducts children circulate, and students are said to disappear from the academy. The world and its history are much darker than they appear and humanity is on the verge of collapse.

It gets interesting around episode 18. Particular anime, overall flat characters and slow story development

amazing. absolutely brilliant. it starts off very disjointed and kind of hard to follow but that only lasts for about 3 episodes. they are intriguing enough tho that it wont be too much of a chore to follow. then once they get to "present day" wow, just wow. theyre not too many of the trappings of what people think of when they think anime. this one is truly in a class of its own. thought-provoking, beautiful, intelligent, adult. this will definitely be on my list of shows i revisit from time to time.
