I'm liking the anime more than i was expecting to. <3
Guess Shion will dye his hair white so he won't be recognized by the police?

If this was the first episode, I would be fine with it but no ... it was the second episode and happened after a timeskip. 4 year timeskip in one episode? 11 episodes? I smell trouble. I'm quitting this.

"I want your sperm"

"Eh???"

"I want to have sex with you right now"

"When you come back in two years we can"

"Shion your so stupid"

I think thats how it went, but my god that was hilarious and out of the blue. xD

Can't wait to see the next episode its going to be great.

5/5 for this one.

Ah that intro with Safu wanting to have sex with him still amused me. xD But now that the anime's seemingly caught up in the manga I really wonder what they'll come up with next. But really, wtf happens to Shion to make him look so... derpy.

Well the manga isn't even the original source material. The novels were in print since 2003.

The first episode was quite good, but this one definitely didn't equal it. Writing seemed a bit ridiculous in some parts, particularly the girl asking Sion to have sex with her. Both of their reactions didn't seem very believable. Also seems a bit rushed with Nezumi appearing out of nowhere just after a time skip. It's only 11 episodes, but it progressing quickly already.

okay i know i mentioned this already last week, BUT JFC THE SIMILARITIES BETWEEN THIS SHOW & 1984 SCARE ME LMAO. government being a creepy-chan & stalking its citizens, yep.


I haven't notice until I read your comment but you're so damn right ! Not to mention that there are two "sides" of the world, the "chosen" people who lives in a quite beautiful and modern place and the "unwanted" people who live... well you get the idea. I really look forward to see what's coming next. :) But there are more technlogies in No.6, but well, considering that 1984 was writing quite a long time ago it's normal.

To me, it's like 1984 without all the critism against totalitarism politics (dictatorship and everything). In No.6, there are much more social classes to me in the "chosen" city and people aren't starving or anything like in 1984.

Anyway, don't know if it makes sense. XD
But still, wasn't sure about No.6 at first, but now I'm really into it honestly.

I'm sorry to those who hate it but I ship Shion and Nezumi, so I was happy when he rejected that girl. She has to be really bold or desperate to ask for sex, seeing as he's shown no interest in her whatsoever. Anyways loved the episode. I think Nezumi is pretty bad ass though. So I'm wondering if next episode, Shion's hair turns white.
I am a sucker for romance!!!!

The proper dystopia to compare them to is probably Brave New World, by Aldous Huxley, rather than Orwell's 1984. Shion's actions in saving Rat demoted him from Alpha or Beta status to the happy life of a Gamma working in the city park. No matter whether it's a soft despotism or a hard one, no all powerful government likes to have its actions questioned (and obviously this one is constantly monitoring people either through their wrist identification bands or by other means). I wonder if City No. 6 has a patriot act?

Poor Safu, she may be brilliant but she just doesn't get people very well (remember her comments about kissing in episode 1). This seems to be moving along nicely, so we'll see how they bring civilization down in the next nine episodes. Don't cheer when it happens though, your own government might be listening....

Very nicely said. That's exactly how I feel. I definitely think they have a patriot act otherwise they would not have had these daily routines at work saying how great No.6 is. Will they mention it? Eh...doubt it, but it seems the act exists.

That is one scary city. Was it hinting that at the end of the first episode, Shion and his mom got sent to the correctional facility and that made his mom forget how to make cherry cake?

Ahh, Utopia/Dystopia. Might show this to my classmates for my Extension English class.

Definitely watching, even though it's yaoi.




Guys remember that this is inside a 'perfect city' where sex is probably only performed for reproduction.

I was very surprised when his friend asked for sperm. Interesting way to put it, almost thought it was for scientific reasons.

I really really like this series so far. : ) Very clever plot, the nazi-like authorities scare me a little though. What a corrupt city. O.o If I lived somewhere like that I'd want to rebel too.

Anyway, I'd like to know how and when this white hair comes about.

I was kind of wary when I watched this last week (I mean the 1st ep of course) but the way they executed this 2nd ep has me sold!

And yeah, lol I had the same "wth" reaction when she asked for his sperm (shouldn't he have blushed more than he did? *shrug*)

And yes, totally LOL at Nezumi having a trained pet rat.

And now I know why/how he got his white hair (unless my line of thinking is wrong) --which was what I've been wondering since 1st ep.

Next ep looks exciting/interesting!!

Err, wasn't it supposed to be the red pill? Red pill wakes you to the real world, blue pill lets you remain in the illusion. Though they were both on the run, Neo at least get to choose, Shion was forced into taking the red pill because there's no blue pill at all, or maybe that what's happened to the dead guy at the park and Yamase in the office.

I really liked this episode, the plot goes really fast but I like it :) I do hope they'll start explaining next episode, damn only 11 episodes so 9 to go! :(

Seems like Sion himself has been infected by that weird... insect thing? Since his neck had all those brown marks etc... Guess that's the reason his hair turns white (which I really want to see!) later on.

And I loved the Mezumi-saving-Sion part ^^ But it makes me wonder how he controls/gets the rat to help him

I bet Nezumi x Sion awoke hundreds of fangirls with this episode :P

i think Mizu will save him and during that his hair will become white.. because others who died also had white hair tho.. Im remined of Allen Walker for some reason.. haha

And wtf are they going to do now in that ugly city ?
Some happy-happy stuff like in the ending song video?
Imo that Mizu guy totally ruined the brownhairs life. D:

Can't really say I'm surprised about the military state and the doom and gloom outside its walls, nothing special there.

The straight forward question from Safu was lolz worthy, btw to the novel readers:
Are we going to see her again, soon?

Also I'm guessing this will be healthy regular bromance and not turn into gay romance?

Btw, the fact that he asked for two years most probably means that this show will span over two years and at the end of it all we get some happy ending? This show doesn't strike me as a dark one.

I was surprised when Safu asked, i expected her to ask for a kiss or something like that, but she is just like that. She's all scientific, like with the stress, other people would have let it be, or said "you'd be sweating" or something, but no, she goes into great details about how the body works when stressed. She was like this in the first episode, too.

So she did not ask him if he loved her, or if he would sleep with her, she askes for his sperm first, and only explains further when he does not understand, or at least if it does look for her like he would not understand.

That he was only slightly shocked on the other hand is interesting, too. Maybe because he knows her for so long, so the two of them got awkward situations regulary.

I think it's obvious that Shions hair will turn white due to the infection (i wondered if they would just ignore the part where the bee came out of his colleagues body when they skipped over to the interrogation, as if nothing happend), but how will they stop it in time? Maybe before the final phase starts, and his hair turning white as after effect, or just in time (though that would be stupid, it happens within seconds).

And the thing about the real world reminds me of Ergo Proxy (or Wolfs Rain), too.

Also, just because he asked for two years doesn't mean it works out that way. He didn't expect to get infectedo, interrogated and having to escape from the city for example. Even if they meet again in two years, same spot, thats not a guarantee for a happy ending. One of them could turn down the other, or one could get shot or whatever.

Obvously, a happy ending is not impossible with the current course of action either, but we'll see soon enough anyways.

I have my concerns over making something with elaborate of a plot as No. 6 into a one-season show for Noitamina. I've seen similar shows like Jyu Oh Sei, Fractale and C suffer quite a bit in their overall quality because there just isn't enough time within 11 episodes to explore every nook and cranny to the world of such titles and thus far, No. 6's pacing seems to be a bit rushed. I admit the premise seems interesting enough with the distopia society. But I doubt 11 episodes will be enough at telling a good quality story with how elaborate No. 6 appears to be passing itself off as.

Uh you probably won't see her for awhile and why should it matter if he has feelings for her or not? That is not the core of what this series is really about.

I think it's waaaay more interesting now, I wouldn't watch this if all the guy did was to live is normal life in that wicked society...anyway, it seems that Shion already had an unresigned soul, but without Nezumi he wouldn't have been excluded from wherever he lived...well maybe it's me, but...I'd rather freedom in a ugly rotten tent than a diamond prison, figuratively and because it's sth beautiful to say, in practice I'd shut up and eat just like everyone else.

Though in 1984 he went with the girl...XD But 1984 was worse (as far as I know...ep 2, I can't really tell)...there was no outer world...no way out. (Ergo Proxy has an ideal city and an outer world, kind of the same concept (though I know nothing about no.6 yet...)).
1984 is one of the most scary/horrifying things I've ever read/seen/imagined...so...(don't mention it again, please...just kidding XP...


I was not expecting such a direct girl, I blinked twice.

Not bad for an episode, but the episode shed no light of what the heck is going on or where the heck are we going. On the other hand, they did time-skip without give a damn to viewers I was like " Didn't last episode he was still a kid and now he is a big boy, did I miss an episode or something? "


^^ I have to agree with this...(though I, personally, loved the episode...I was like ohhhh :( when it ended...)

And again...shounen-ai isn't yaoi...damn. Somehow, I can understand love between humans without gender restrictions (*cries* it's so beautiful...)...so I don't care if it's shounen-ai, shoujo-ai, "normal" ai...This story seems interesting, I'm 99,9999% sure I'll stick with it.

My main conclusion: uh uh Nezumi is AWESOME!!

This show just threw me a curveball (girls asks guy to have sex with her)


From one side we have people shouting that it's not about gay people and yaoi but on the other this show throws staff like that. It's like the whole thing was put there so he can deny her and make him seem more gay. The same about the conversation about the other dude seeing him naked.
It's disappointing that they throw this shit like that and can't leave it be a story about crazy people control, lack of any kind of freedom, lack of human rights and people in power abusing authority.
It can have such a strong message with the world is build around, that trying to play with our heads about having yaoi elements or not seems such a waste.

The episode was nice though and lets hope that they will keep focus on the plot and stop trying to throw any further sexual innuendos like that.

It's called fleshing out the characters and gives the characters something to do when not fighting against "the man."

You'd be better off hoping for world peace. The only people's heads that are getting messed with are the ones unable to grasp or deny the emotions presented in the story between the two characters. It's not the writer's fault some people are not mature to accept what is being told.

I really lol'ed at what Safu said.
That music at the escape from the cops sounded as if it's a American show in the eighties.
This show is really awesome up to now. *starting episode 3*

Surprising that Safu may leave city even though it's ruled this way. She should stay there actually for her safety.
