  • FANTASTIC--until the last episode
    If only the anime had 12 episodes instead of 11, they could have successfully pulled off the original ending, which was much more satisfying. Other than the conclusion, not much else is different from the source material, except for some things happening in slightly different order, and some of the violence (and uh, gay) being a little more toned-down. Bones does a fantastic job as always with the ...

  • A Guilty Pleasure Anime
    I enjoyed this anime thoroughly, even though it has major problems. I will judge this anime on its own merits and faults, since I haven't read the manga.

    One problem it had is the story. There is a lot of filler and padding. The story tempts you with a dystopian future, government conspiracy story, but then is sidetracked way too often by the characters. By all means, develop the characters and ...

  • Beautiful, but will you care?
    I really enjoyed this one. Couldn't put it down, due to wanting to know what was going on or going to happen.
    I nicely done, Evil Utopian anime. Full story line and resolution.
    You will like the characters, and wish for deeper development with them.
    That is where it knitted my eyebrows.
    Everything in this story seemed to only half develop.
    Plot, McGuffin, Character's personalities. A little ...

    No. 6 Review

    I have been anxious to write a review of No. 6 since I binge-watched the series two weeks ago here on Crunchyroll. Once I had done that however, I quickly purchased the series on Blu-ray as I wanted everything No. 6 that I could get my hands on. This anime and story is just that good! Yes, it has its flaws, but what anime doesn’t, right? Nevertheless, overall, the story, the ...

  • One of my favorites!
    I finished watching this anime in about a day. I love the characters, the setting, the art, and the soundtrack! Shion and Nezumi have such opposite personalities that they're absolutely perfect. They balance each other out wonderfully. Now, I'm not even going to get started on what their relationship is; some say friends, some say more, it's up to each person, but all that matters is that ...

  • Excellent Short and Intense
    I really enjoyed watching this anime, and I liked the way that it wrapped. I do wish that the creators had spent more time fleshing out the backstory of the different characters. It would have been great if they had gone into more detail about the creation of No.6 and if we could have learnt more about Sion's mother's involvement in No.6. There is so much more I would like to know. I am glad ...

  • Interesting Dystopian Mystery
    I'm struggling pretty hard to decide whether this is 4 or 5 stars.

    It had some problems, sure, but it was a contained story that had very little outstanding questions or plot holes. A lot of similar mystery-type anime leave plenty unanswered which can be quite annoying.

    There's a bit of a 1984-dystopian setting, which I liked. The color palette was quite bright and the characters well ...

  • Couldn't Stop Watching
    I watched all 11 episodes in one go because I could not tear my eyes away from the screen. Worth every minute. I enjoy media with a strong theme of exploring emotional bonds between characters, and while the overarching plot is fascinating and has plenty to offer, the core of this story, to me at least, is the bond between the two protagonists.

  • Gorgeous anime with a few tiny flaws
    I waited to write this until I was done with the show even though I had pretty much formed my opinion by episode 3.

    This is a gorgeous anime - the animation is beautiful, the character design smooth, yet reactive, sometimes fast, sometimes slow. It's just the perfect mix.

    The music is a two-edged sword: the intro and outro are some of the best I have ever heard (I actually bought both ...

  • Had to watch it twice...
    I cannot praise this series highly enough. A high quality anime adaption by Studio Bones of the original novel by Atsuko Asano, this series has a great soundtrack and top-notch voice acting to boot. The plot sticks pretty closely to the novel for which I am grateful. However, you do not need to have read the novel to understand what's going on.
    You know how some series take up to 4-5 episodes to ...
