No.6 episodes 07 & 08

Good, very good. It’s nice to see that the story is finally getting a lot more interesting. The previous episodes left me wondering several things, things that have been answered in these episodes.

I had thought that Shion would’ve discovered Safu’s situation by himself. Obviously I was mistaken, Nezumi ended up telling him the truth after all. Sure, Shion was pissed off, but he did show understanding.

Shion, as I predicted, has made the search for Safu his top priority. Wanting to save Safu and bring the organization behind No.6 down, Shion and Nezumi set out for some sort of underground maze, in order to meet up a certain man. This man turned out to be none other than one of the professors behind No.6 and everything that city stands for. This man seemed to know practically everything about No.6 and the people running it. He shared some information with the boys after hearing out Shion’s entire story. He then gave Shion some sort of chip, claiming it has all the information about No.6 on it. This is where I got very suspicious.. Why did he give it just like that? And I can’t help but to notice several similarities between that man and Shion. I wouldn’t be at all surprised if that man turned out to be Shion’s father.

Speaking about fatherly candidates, I think that Rikiga has a good chance too. In both episodes  he shows an abnormal amount of interest in Shion, wanting to know everything about him, getting worked up about his safety and whatnot. I think it’s still too early to decide, but at this point it’s Rikiga who’s more likely to be the father.

Moving on to a less important but very interesting development… Shion kissed Nezumi! On the mouth! HAX! CHEATS! This character confuses me to no end. Nezumi is the sole survivor of the Forest People. And in the scene that showed the survivor, you could clearly see a little girl with long hair and grey/silver eyes. This specific scene made me doubt Nezumi’s gender. I haven’t read the manga, so I can’t be too sure, but this character really confused me during these two episodes. Nezumi acts and speaks like a boy pretty much all the time, except for when he/she is on stage.

As for Shion’s upcoming quest to Save Safu and bring the organization behind No.6 down, I still stand by the statement I made in my previous No.6 post. I think that the bakery, owned by Shion’s mother, is going to be used as a safe house for Shion and his allies. That would be, at least at this point, a logical and strategic decision.

  1. very nice. but i dont think they will use that bakery as a safe house. i think its going to be more like a government infiltration via that secret passage
