    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 ...

  • Compelling yet short
    Complex with endearing characters. Dystopian theme is quirky, and intriguing. The story line/relationships develop naturally. Only issue: Parts of plot (the end) felt rushed, unclear, underdeveloped.

    short, but a real pleasure
    this show has a lot of your standard dystopian themes but, really, dystopias have been done for ages so it's hard to do something truly ~original~ at this point. best you can do these days is try to put together elements in an interesting way and execute the story well, and i think no. 6 does a pretty decent job of that. the last episode is definitely rushed - the ending should have at least been ...

  • A beautiful and lovely must-see anime
    In the start, I thought: Yeah, a future genre with smartass thingies but then Shion shows a wonder about the world he lives in when he meats Nezumi.

  • A must see anime for every animefan
    NO.6 is a great anime especially if you are looking for a good story and great characters.
    It covers a lot on different topics that happen in the real world which make it great and I would recommend it to anyone who loves anime. It is one my top favorites after just watching it.

    A real keeper. This one really makes you think.
    i don't know what i love more about this series the anti-big brother agenda or the cold realistic feel. there is so much to learn from this series. definitely a must watch if you like a good story with your anime.

  • Amazing: Really worth watching
    I usually don't find myself on series I've never heard of before, but boredom told me to look. I can say, I was not disappointed. The story is engaging and the animation only makes it better. There is a healthy mix of action without it being the focus. The story leaves you wanting more.

    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 ...

  • I enjoyed watching it, but it wasn't long enough and seemed incomplete.
    I enjoyed watching this anime. The characters were entertaining, the animation was great, and the setting was impressive. There was just one huge problem. The ending didn't make much sense and wasn't explained. It started out great, the first couple episodes made sense and it seemed to be heading in an interesting direction. Towards the middle it became rushed. If they made the end longer and ...

    Words Cannot Describe
    Words cannot describe what an impact this story has when you truly see the message it successfully creates.
    Now I might just be taking this show to a different level but from what I saw it was an allegory for our current society. When Shion asks why everything has to be black and white it alludes to our world today. Especially when it comes to the topic of gay rights and how ...
