Despite the title, as obviously as this concept might seem, as your perception of the world will, of course, change what you do and how you do certain things, but let’s put it in this context for a minute: what would be the first thing you do when entering an unfamiliar place or new society environment? You’ll be more likely to pay attention to certain things to see how your new environment works, how people act, and observe all the changes from your old environment as well. Perhaps you may be more sensitive and notice new things that you never noticed before, especially if you’re from a different part of the world or entering a new country, as that’s pretty much what situation the characters of Re:Creators end up in.
This week, we discuss the ethic systems in place within Shinsekai Yori and how perceptions of those ethics shape our view of humanity.
Unrelated, we also talk about Japan’s obsession with blood types for a bit.
