Synopsis

The year is 2013 in the city of No. 6, the city that embodies the highest ideals of humankind. Shion has been raised here as a high-ranking elite since the age of two, but on the night of his twelfth birthday his fate is turned upside-down when he meets a boy who calls himself Nezumi.

"Why did I open the window that night? If I had not, I'd never have needed to know what it is like to fight, starve, or suffer in anguish...."

This is my first review, but I felt entailed to write a review as there is none and this novel was really spectacular in many aspects. I will start off with a warning - if you are not open-minded of male on male relationships then don't read this. This novel may not be hardcore yaoi but it contains shounen-ai scenes that may not be tolerable for tight-laced male on female enthusiasts.

Story: I will not write a summary as there is already one provided for you on this website. I rated the story a 10. I am not a hardcore sci-fi fan so I am read more

What is similar in these series are the characters. Nezumi and Gareki are both tough and street-smart boys with a painful past . Nai and Shion are both kind and naive kids who know nothing about the world. the relationship between Nezumi and Shion is almost exactly the same as the relationship between Nai and Gareki, and vice versa. Karneval as a story is more action focused and has more characters. No.6 focuses more on the dystopian society, as well as being more shounen-ai (karneval is not, but it could easily be. keep wishing, fangirls!). Reading both stories however, one notices a striking similarity between the two mangas, especially in the beginning. Both are amazing reads.
