Name: No. 6
MAL Rating: 7.72/10
Six city states rose after a long and bloody war waged in the world. Life, for a time, seemed perfect, utopian but there were many evils hiding under the surface. No. 6 follows the story of a young boy by the name of Shion who has lived his life in the wealth of city-state No. 6 along with his mother who owned a bakery. After a loud ringing sounds in the distance during a large storm, a mysterious boy enters his room. Shion agrees to help him with a wound, who introduces himself as Nezumi, or Rat, who is also a fugitive. This chance encounter changes Shions life who is then banished from the city losing he and his mother’s elite status within the city. The change of location made Shion learn a lot about the differences in life style and how life may not be as utopian as he once thought.
Years later and the two meet again and work together to expose the secrets behind the increase of mysterious deaths within No. 6.
This, personally, is one of my favorite anime. The anime adaptation differs slightly from its light novel counterpart, but both are enjoyable.
