More Than Darkness (闇よりも Yami Yori Mo) is the tenth episode of the Shin Sekai Yori anime series. It first aired in Japan, on December 1, 2012.

Short Summary

Protected by a charm she got from Shun, Saki manages to defeat the Impure Cat before meeting him. Shun reveals to her that his entire village was destroyed because his powers went out of control. She also learns from him that the drastic alteration in the world's fauna and flora seen in the last 1000 years was due to the residual energy that flows from humans whose powers are not in full control; the safehouse where he is being kept is bizarrely warped and his pet bulldog Subaru mutated into a monstrous form by the leakage from his powers. Subaru is killed protecting Shun from the other Impure Cat, which has been sent to kill him, and Shun subsequently kills it. With little time left before he is killed by his own uncontrolled power, Shun reveals to Saki that he always loved her before having her flee to safety.
