Cold Sunlight (冷たい日だまり Tsumetai Hidamari) is the twentieth episode of the Shin Sekai Yori anime series. It first aired in Japan, on February 16, 2013.
- Saki and Satoru create a diversion and manage to escape their boat before the Friend incinerates it. They continue on to the village in order to warn the townspeople, but come across a mutant fish that attacks them, blowing itself up in a suicide attack. Saki is blown away by the explosion and separated from Satoru. While in midair, she has a flashback of her parting with Shun, although still she cannot remember his name or face. When she lands, she is attacked by flying boulders and fears the Ogre has found her until her attacker reveals himself as a young boy, who mistook her for a Monster Rat. They continue to the village, which is now in shambles with many dead or injured. The canals have been drained in order to prevent the mutant fish from accessing the town, but Saki wonders if this was Yakomaru's attempt at cutting off their only means of transportation. She finds an injured Tomiko, who refuses to believe that a Fiend is on the loose. She tells Saki to find the Security Council and warn the others, while she stays behind. Saki protests, but Tomiko formally requests that she take charge of the Ethics Committee, and that it is now her duty to protect the town. Saki departs the hospital, leaving Tomiko behind.
