But for all that, I really do admire No. The scene plays out exactly like the scene when Nezumi saved Sion from the parasatic bee. I think Nezumi left because he wanted Shion to return to the smiling and idealistic person that he first met. Neither anime have anything in common, and should not be compared. 6 – is another one that has strong elements of ‘90s style, so perhaps this heralds a return to a different age in anime – and least for a little slice of the genre pie. 6, the city that embodies the highest ideals of humankind. 6 anime is rather beside the point.

I just looked up summaries for last 2 volumes of novels, so many differences, and a lot more things explained. I hope to see more stories like this in the future (but with better ending XD ). With his new liberty, Nezumi wanted to explore everything around him, lose the bad memories and begin a new life. Yoming was part of some sort of violent resistance that planned to overthrow the city, but was a casualty when the wasps hatched. 6 focuses on the last stretch towards unifying No. I don’t think the fujoshis are going to the lining up for this one. As long as you just give the fanbase SOME sort of hint, they go crazy and stick to it. I kind of like this “head/heart” format that NoitaminA has used lately, though it seems as if they’re going in a different direction with two sci-fi accented shows this fall, geared more towards an otaku audience. Also, Safu was a pretty awesome girl in the novel, coming to terms that there was no way to save her but she still stayed strong. 6 for sticking to its guns.

The change in Shion’s way of thinking was so rushed that it appeared that he had some serious mental issues in this episode and the previous one. From the bottom of my heart, I believe that Nezumi will come back once he is able to rid himself of his bad memories. But when he gets over his hatred, he will definitely come back to Sion. That summary makes the last episode sound like a bunch of random things happening, Makes it sound like? YES, I AM EXTREMELY, ENORMOUSLY, PAINFULLY MAD. That’s the thing that’s bad about adding too many ‘Bishounens’ or ‘Yaoi’ sure it gives everyone something to squeel over but not while screwing everything else. Inukashi says that they need to leave but Nezumi stubbornly stays behind as he crawls to Sion’s side. I loved this series up to the end… the last 5 minutes were kind of a let down, I was expecting more than what we got.

We have a way to advertise on the site if you're interested. It started off great and had me waiting for the next episode to come out in anticipation, but as for the ending, personally I’d rather have seen them die together than see that stupid bee An 11-episode anime television series adaptation by Bones was broadcast on Fuji TV's Noitamina programming block from … You are so right about this series not being created to be taken seriously. In all respect, it would sound ridiculous to me the way it’s written if I hadn’t watched the episode before looking up this post. I loved the OP from the trailer, but… 6 novel was extremely bittersweet and beautiful in its own way. 6 ends on an understated, restrained and reflective note – a quiet and dignified final episode that reflected the nature of the series as a whole. Bittersweet Ending: Shion couldn't save his childhood friend Safu and Nezumi leaves him after the walls of No.6 fall. I certainly didn’t see this ending coming. Read reviews on the anime No.6 (No. Very disappointed with how it was rushed, even if there was no other choice. Thanks to a crap ending it will be buried and forgotten – as it should be. I could hear my mother laughing on the other end. PURCHASE No.6 (Amazon Affiliate Link) Fractale had a similar concept but it was more of a trainwreck. I will agree, No.6 in itself was quite a gift along with Usagi Drop. Tension was building for too long.

In a strange way I think No. NOVEL: No. Nezumi and Sion parted but on good terms. After activating the bomb, Nezumi drags Sion to the elevator. Were the Safu spoilers for the novel true? I seriously thought they were going to be goners, and I’m in a flux about not seeing Nezumi and Sion anymore. I also found Nezumi’s reaction to be quite unnatural – probably because the large chunks that depicted each character’s psychology in the novel disappeared completely. and why the heck did Sion not care? Lol, I was like “wtf”, and ended up moving myself literally, yea more lyk it shuld be forgotten and buried to u only tat is……zzz. I just do hope the manga adaptation – which I’ll be following from now on – of the novel is much better than this anime. Also, Nezumi did not immediately leave after they destroyed the correctional facility. No close-up bromance kiss in the finale? As someone who hasn’t been following the novel, all I’m left with is a feeling of vague disappointment.

Shion never got shot. 6. Obviously it’s not the best series of the world, but it managed to make me feel for the characters, and to get involved in the whole story, so I give credit to that =) And yes, Sion and Nezumi were totally cute in some scenes. But nooo, Bones just had to give the baby to Sion. It was a gigantic FUBAR. I had been tiny bit familiar of this your broadcast offered brilliant transparent idea, Your email address will not be published. By the way, the little girl with Shion’s mother…I forget, was she the resistance leader’s daughter (or niece or something)? The only thing that woke me up was the kiss. what an epic fail.

The first episode of the anime adaptation of no.6 was broadcasted a couple days ago and it wasn't much for a 'sci-fi' anime at all for a 'neutral' audience. Now, I know BONES couldn’t really do much with an 11 episode time slot, but I think they could’ve done better. The year is 2013, and it's the city of No. Debates/Disagreements are okay, but keep things civil and be nice.
