Meh, worst episode so far. First 3 episodes were good with great and character development, but this episode felt really slow and nothing really happened. We didn't find out anything new about no.6 and those weird bee things either.

I was actually under the impression that the bee was a part of the No.6 plan to punish the non-loyal citizens, of course this is only a mere assumption based on the episodes so far (me no read novel :3)

I guess not since Yamase - the guy who worked with Sion - wasn't being disloyal, he was actually preventing Sion to become one. >_>


yea i completely forgot about that >_>; maybe its contagious (how else would yamase and finally sion get it)

I'm not sure what to think of this anime anymore, but I love it regardless.
Is there a manga that it's based on?

Despite the bromance, really liked their characters with their philosophical views of life esp. Nezumi and Sion have contrasting views.

If a whore ask for a charge for her kiss, then return it with a kiss. lol

As soon as the ED played, it was touching.

The preview is so interesting. Can't wait.. :D

So now the boys drop the shows because it has BL? wow, im amazed with such mature people.
I never dropped a show because it had Yuri, or fanservice with big boobs, although i dont like it, but i totally respect it. (and guess what, i also didn't became a lesbian for watching yuri, isnt that amazing?).
This has a plot. The bees, Nº6, and Nezumi´s past which probably will connect all. The relationship of Nezumi x Shion makes part of the plot.

Hell yeah, homophobic people should just drop it, but at least spare the fans of your comments filled with prejudice. Thank you!

As for the ep, all i must say is : i like Safu a LOT. But Sion belongs to Nezumi~~~ ~~OTP
true love doesnt count the situations, time, age, gender or place. it just happens u know.

Well I think we really shouldn't be "harsh" on those who want to drop it now. I mean, they at least had the guts to stick around for four episodes and then dropping it. Its way better than those who dropped it right after the first episode without giving it a chance.

BL just isn't everybody's thing. :)

LOL! So many guys are dropping this anime. xD
Though I CAN understand why because I wouldn't be interested in any yuri shit.

I marathoned the current episodes last night, and it was pretty awesome. Heh. As of right now, I'm giving this anime a 10/10 rating, though I'm sure it would drop a bit by the end. ):
Am I the only one that thinks Sion and Nezumi belongs together?!
Normally I'd be crazy about the het couplings, but here, I hope Sion doesn't come back to Safu in two years.. TT__TT

This show is so ghey :P Nothing too blatant, but damn the yaoi subtext is everywhere. Uhm, well, OK, the guy offering to take on Nezumi as a man-whore was pretty damn blatant.

Despite the somewhat uncomfortable is-it-or-isn't-it flirting the two engage in, I'm digging the show pretty well. We got to see a lot more Dogkeeper, though we didn't see her do any actual fighting, just sic her dogs on Nezumi. If he would befriend his rats like Shion has, he might be able to use them in swarm tactics similar to what the dogs did here. Not that he seems to need any help, he was badass enough to take down half a dozen trained attack dogs and still make it to the person they were guarding, with nary a scratch. Shion saved the day tho, and good for him, I'd miss Dogcatcher :P

I wonder if the two protagonists are ever just gonna get it over with and fuck, or if it's going to stay like Saki's yuri relationships, just blushing and hand-holding (onscreen at least).

And yes, I loved Shion naming the mice. As someone who names his inanimate objects (pipes and bowls mostly), it entertained me to see Shion naming the little roborats.

4/5

Well..I was a little peeved off that they totally bullshitted the scene in the manga with the whore. They really just..side stepped it and didn't add in the whole speech Nezumi said about Sion being crazy about him =n=

OTHER THAN THAT...oh maaan. Sion getting all worked up and protective of Nezumi like that...;o; It was so cute...and WHY DO THEY GIVE US PREVIEWS LIKE THAT ALL THE TIME. IT ISN'T FAIR. NOW I -NEED- TO SEE THE NEXT EPISODE.

This is totally torture..T^T It hurts....

Thankfully getting better. This episode picked up a few good moments. The change in Nezumi is interesting.. That's a + in his character development. Shion being an airhead still annoys me. I'd be irritated just as Nezumi is with him. Shion may be high on IQ in No.6 but he sucks at adapting. He's slow. I just want someone to give him a huge good dose of what reality REALLY is like. Nezumi should just come out and tell him basic rules or stuff about the outside world.

I thought he had a bug-related attack when he got his fits of fury for Nezumi being "insulted". O.o It was SO weird.
Guess all this just shows how immature Shion actually is.

this episode wasn't as good as the previous ones. I am still in love with the anime, though, but I'm happy I'm keeping track of the novel, because the anime just does not deliver sometimes.

agreed.

as much as i love shion/nezumi, i wanted the plot to move forward a little more--it's already the 4th episode, how are they possibly going to squish in the rest of the novels now? (can i hold on to my faint, fragile hope for a second season?) give us more info on the bees, on the history of no. 6, anything! ah well at least there's the creepy agent guy keeping watch over shion's mom, (shouldn't they have bugged the place instead? i want creepier big brother vibes) and a small hint of ~conspiracies~ to come, with that mysterious photo.

don't much like the flow of this ep, some things seem forced and i wish they'd adapted/cut some scenes differently but OH HEY MOAR DOGKEEPER BEING CUTE AND SNARKY all is forgiven. <3

...except what they did to shion. so far i like shion better in the novels, the anime just... dumbs him down. D: nezumi i like either way, and his /eyes/... (shion is totally justified in obsessing over them lol)

PS: people hating on safu just because she ~gets in the way~ make me ashamed to call myself a fujoshi. seriously: DOWN, girls.

PPS: D: i really really wanted the 'i can't quantify you if i tried!' conversation animated. ;_____; that was my favorite bit.

Excellent episode as usual, put all my thoughts here if you feel like checking it out. In short, I love the direction the show is going and I love the clashes between Shion and Nezumi. They seem to represent the "do what I want" atmosphere of the "real world" and the more civilized (albeit constrained) lifestyle in No.6.

Also, I still think the argument about Nezumi/Shion having a romantic relationship is pointless, but if it makes you uncomfortable then just don't watch it, we don't need to hear the same statements repeated every single week. "yaoi vibes" "the gheys" "blahblah" If it's not for you, then just put it aside. And I understand it's your opinion, but it seems like in most places I lurk people are just fishing for arguments without actually justifying their complaints.

well i think , its a only a good friendship that shion want to make with nezumi not love rofl , that is what i think , they both want to find the secret of Number Six and be good friends thats what i think . if the anime was homo it was kind of sad :/

I really think you know little about guys, in fact most of these people bashing those dropping are probably Yaoi fangirls, now you say you've watched yuri and even fanservice shows, but in the end that was entirely your choice, dropping an anime because it has BL isn't homophobia, it's a clear clash of taste, men really don't like being associated with anything gay, that doesn't mean they are homophobic, lots of guys are fine with gay people they just don't want it to encoach on them, besides any guy who remotely gets spotted watching anything 'gay' would be labelled as such, people (like straight men and closeted homosexuals) often wish to avoid such for their personal image, please try to understand that yaoi and BL often don't appeal to men, and not hit out at them in what can only be described as a ranting yaoi fangirl.

Now onto my opinion :)

I enjoyed the episode, and I certainly am not dropping this anime (even though I'm a straight guy, OMG GASP! this really doesn't help my rant admitting this but hey ho)

However the plot didn't move much, but I did get this little tingle in my chest seeing Sion's mum sobbing from joy (or sadness if you interpret 'Mum, I'm sorry I'm alive' in a different context).

I personally wish for this anime to focus more on the plot, I don't mind the BL moments but if it start dictating the entire plot such as (MY LOVE FOR ___ IS WHATS MAKING ME DO THIS) starts to occur I may end up extremely frustrated, the plot seem's fairly interesting but I am not particularly sure where it is going, I hope we see more of pissed off Sion because quite frankly having a white haired, red eyed man go crazy was kinda badass, shame he's such a meek (is that the correct word?) person, that would be an uke in BL terms right?

Sion is too overly sensitive I believe, whilst as an aspect to any character it can be cute, I really don't know many men who are like that, thus he seems quite feminine, which obviously means this is steering towards a BL ending if it continues like this.

I'll rate it as a 3/5 episode, I did find Nezumi's attitude awesome, with how he dealt with the whore and how he fought off the dogs, I also enjoyed angry Sion and the scene with his mother, but the fact that the plot really didn't advance really knocked down the score for me.

Ok now it's time to wait for lots of Fangirls to claim that I AM HOMOPHOBIC AND ENTIRELY WRONG! (not that I care so fire away!)

Shion is being a bit annoying, especially with his naivete - rules would be helpful haha.
And that attack was also bizzare, I agree. I'd thought the same thing.

I love how Nezumi handled the dogkeeper, though I really hope it wasn't foreshadowing anything very important

I would rant about the tantrums and "I quit" attitude shown by others because of a little homoerotic behavior. These same people enjoy loli and incestual roles yet get out of your normal comfort zone and you can't handle it. Though I would be ranting at children who don't see the anime as a whole and focus on such a small part of an interesting story. I commend BONES on doing this anime, it is refreshingly different.
