- Acclaimed Flop: The series has drawn near universal-acclaim from critics, some even calling it one of the greatest anime of the The New '10s. Sales wise? Barely a thousand sold.
- Dueling Shows: The Unlimited Hyoubu Kyousuke shares similar, if modernly-grounded and less bleak, themes regarding psychics and the dangers they pose to society, and premiered the season after Shin Sekai Yori began. It seems to pan to a larger audience, being more action-oriented and a whit more optimistic, though.
- Fan Nickname: Among English-speaking fans, it's often referred to as "Shinsekai Yuri" or "Shinsekai Yaoi" on account of the generous helpings of both Ho AND Les Yay.
- Mamoria: For Maria and Mamoru's unnamed child.
