    No.6, a mesmerizing short anime
    I am still giving this anime 5 stars, even though it isn't perfect.
    But with characters and visuals so captivating, I will overlook any shortcomings!

    Despite what you may have read, this is primarily a sci-fi action anime.
    It's a dystopian futuristic society, the usual Brave New World / 1984, "Big Brother is watching you" story. An ideal society by appearances, but which molds its inhabitants ...

    A Great Series Hindered Slightly by the 11-Episode Curse
    I found out about No. 6 because of a recommendation I received based on the fact that I enjoyed an anime called Fractale—and it turns out the recommendation is more apt than I could have imagined. Basically, Fractale was a fantastic show that was extremely hindered by its short length. Similarly, No. 6 is a show that is held back (though not nearly as much as ...

    Excellent--though left much to be desired.
    I'm currently reading the manga and told myself I wouldn't watch the anime but I couldn't resist and I'm glad that I didn't. The anime was fantastic and somewhat follows what I've read in the manga so far. My only complaint about this series would be the ending. I and I know many others felt it was a bit rushed seeing as they crammed so much info (and lack there of) in only 11 episodes when it ...

    Great, but short, show
    I agree with some of the reviewers, the show is hindered by the limited amount of time they can tell the story in. I feel like there could be more episodes exploring the background of Nezumi and Sion's mother and the founding of No. 6. Overall it is a bit tropy but one of the best shows I've watched in a while.

    Each episode makes you want more! PLOT OVERVIEW! for those who havent watched No.6
    No.6 is in a way a unique anime as it show how a utopia can't really exist without a little government conspiracy and secrets. It shows how the so called "utopia" keeps order by silencing the people who wish for a different life/question the government. In a way that it shows this is when Sion first meets Rat when he was young. Sion learns that Rat is a runaway prisoner being tracked by the ...

    The Tears Their So Strong T^T
    Overall this anime was amazing. Not only is it touching but *spoiler coming* they express homosexuality in it. I give the props for taking a step in anime that not many other animes take. Some people say it's just too much but I just think it adds a little more spice to the characters. I don't have any negative comments for this anime just that it excelled in every way. I would love it if there ...

    All short anime are sad...
    ...and No. 6 is no exception, but it is worth it. Oh so worth it. In this series a young boy risks his cushy lifestyle to help a young convict because he can't believe someone his age could be dangerous. The two boys form a quick, if shaky, bond. This one act of compassion begins a domino effect that changes, well, everything.

    Quality work from BONES as usual, the detail is stunning, the ...

    You Must Watch This!!!!!!!
    Overall I enjoy this anime the first time I watched it I was a bit confused but then I started to enjoy it. I then understood what it was about but I can't really described it you have to watch to know what I mean!!
    The Storyline is to interesting it takes place in the ideal city “NO.6″ in 2013. Shion was judged as having “highest-ranked intelligence” when he was two years old and was allowed to ...

    A haunting, classic sci-fi theme given new twists and turns... and romance
    Only 4 episodes in and I'm already attached to No. 6 enough to buy it; whether it gets a dub or not. It's that enthralling that fast for me.

    The eerie feeling that the viewer gets right alongside Sion as he is shown how imperfect No. 6 really is, and just how deep the cover-ups and brainwashing goes is spectacular.

    One of the most interesting aspects of the show, however, is the ...

    This is my favorite anime
    This anime did what no other anime has done for me. I watched this anime not thinking or knowing that there would be any romantic subtext of any kind. I was surprised pleasantly to learn that one of the more overlooked, or stereotyped, communities received a new iconic story of excellent, non-gimmicky, writing. The story was well thought out and intricate. The characters were spectacular.

    The ...
