FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

###SENTAI FILMWORKS ANNOUNCES LICENSE OF NO. 6

Houston, TX, August 03, 2011: Sentai Filmworks today confirmed the latest in its recent string of anime series acquisitions by announcing the company’s acquisition of the futuristic thriller No. 6. Based on the manga written by Atsuko Asano and illustrated by Hinoki Kino, the 11 episode post-apocalyptic mystery anime is the first series directed by storyboard and opening animation master Kenji Nagasaki (Kiba, Mobile Suit Gundam 00,) with series script duties being handled by Seishi Minakami (Heaven’s Memo Pad, Living For The Day After Tomorrow,) and character designs by Satoshi Ishino (Excdel Saga, Puni Puni Poemy.)

In a near future world after the last great war, most of mankind now lives in a handful of city states. There, for the privileged elite, life should be perfect. But for young Shion, the only thing perfect has been the nightmare his life has become since letting a strange boy named Nezumi shelter for the night in his apartment. Banished to the outskirts of the city and stripped of all privileges for helping the mysterious stranger, Shion’s personal danger only compounds when his inquiry into a new series of mysterious deaths results in his being arrested on suspicion of murder! But even as Shion is being sent to the city’s Correctional Institute, the long missing Nezumi reappears to rescue him! Now, on the run, the two young men have only one chance at survival: uncover the mysterious secrets that lie at the sinister heart of City Number 6!

No. 6is currently airing digitally on Crunchyroll, and will soon be available through other digital outlets with a home video release of the series to follow next year.

Episode One was definitely enjoyable, and being a BONES production it looks beautiful. I will definitely be keeping up with this one.

Perhaps someone at Sentai noticed all the discussion regarding CR’s subs for this one. They use the name Nezumi, not rat. I believe there may have been a translators note, but I can’t recall exactly.


#4

Now that I’ve seen the first episode in it’s entirety I can say I’m happy with it.

Glad Nezumi was used. As for the show, already seen the first five and loved it so watching it again was nice.

Uhhh actually it’s not. For some reason right after episode 8, the next one is episode 10.


#16

It was.
But as you can see from my report in the Reports thread…

http://www.theanimenetwork.com/component/option,com_kunena/Itemid,65/catid,5/func,view/id,39967/limit,10/limitstart,980/#96843

It had encoding issues, and was disabled until they could get new files made.

This series only has 11 episodes.
So there isn’t an ep. 12, so it’s not missing.


#17

Thanks Coffee. I knew I should’ve checked that thread first. :stuck_out_tongue:

Until then…
