    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 ...

    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 ...

    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 ...

    Good plot, weak ending
    Most of this show is very well written, although don't expect a lot of high action scenes. There are some elements that seem a bit off, but taken in a 'love it for what it is' way, they don't really detract from the main plot. The ending is a bit of a cop out to me personally, but not totally out of plot reach.

    The adaption suffers a bit; it was a novel before it was an anime so expect the ...

    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 ...

    I loved the show till the end
    I loved this show till the end. When I found this show I was really happy because it wasn't a crazy anime show like most others. Then the end came and I was like WTF happen here it was a really great show. I also started watching it because it was a BL show but, It was a great bl but I just don't believe in the couple Nezumi and Sion. The couple was cute. The show had great potential but, it went ...

    Cool Sci-Fi And Great Characters!
    Oh, this series was just great.

    Let me start with my favorite part: the characters. The two main leads, Rat and Shion, are so well-developed, interesting, and lovable. You can't help but feel their pain and joy. They both lose so much in this rotting world that the little they gain makes your heart hurt for them. Their relationship (to me at least) is a good example of two close friends trying ...
