Well, everyone seems to be introducing themselves here, so I guess I should give it a hand. I'm not very good at this kind of thing though, so bear with me.

I guess I should start by saying that my name is Sommer, I will be 20 in less than a month, and I live in a painfully conservative town in the southern United States. I attend college as an English professional writing major, and I study Japanese language and culture in hopes to become a translator in the future.

I absolutely love books and reading. My family jokingly calls my room "The Library" on account of the fact that my bookshelves are crammed full and pretty much every other available space is covered in stacks of books. I have a love for pretty much every type of book, but I do love the classics and I have always had a slight obsession with Shakespeare.

I also love writing, which is a good thing considering my career path. I have not written any fanworks on my own yet, but I do run a few rp blogs on tumblr. My newest is a Nezumi/Shion ask blog that is having and extremely slow start and really needs a lot of love. If you want to come check it out, the url is this-is-our-truth. ^-^ Hopefully I will be posting some short one-shots and some AMVs pretty soon as well.

I am so glad that I found this forum of such amazing fans, and I can't wait to talk to some of you!

Hello everyone! :D

It's awesome that we're such an international community!  ;w; no.6 is global!! nezushi is global!

My name is Meo. I'm a Californian living in rural Japan as an assistant language teacher. I turned 24 this year. Uhm, I like cats and potatoes and no.6 very, very much. I also like anime and manga in general. (My favorite being Fullmetal Alchemist, but I try to watch a variety of shows.) I'm also a huge fan of video games: Phoenix Wright series, Legend of Zelda, Professor Layton, Fire Emblem, etc.

I was INFJ the last time I checked. :d I'm also a slytherinnnn.

I heard about No.6 a long time ago, but I never found the time to check it out and eventually forgot about it till a friend reblogged a page from the manga on tumblr one day and it interested me. And I'm so glad she did because it essentially changed my life. X3

Normally, I don't write or draw or contribute anything besides headcanons to any fandoms, so I am terribly sloppy and rusty in all of the above. But I'm so incredibly drawn to No.6 that I just can't help myself. XD I'm sorry. I am receptive of constructive criticism, so please tell me what you think of anything and everything!

What's everyone's favorite quote and character from No.6?
I'll probably need to look for a quote, but my favorite character is most probably Shion (though I love them all!.. except for all the nameless characters.)

ooo are we reviving this board? I'm pretty excited to hear what's going on in people's lives.

My birth name is Rebekah, but to my close friends and online I am Ghosty. I am asexual and agender. I have two sisters, a twin and one five years older than me. I am in High School right now, but hope to go to college and major in psychology and minor in gender studies, or vice versa, and become a psychiatrist for teens with gender issues.

I live in the U.S., specifically Florida, and have all my life. I kindof hate Florida a lot though...

I love anime/manga, drawing, and video games. My favorite anime is obviously No. 6, but some of my other favorites are Angel Beats, Death Parade, and Tokyo Ghoul. I'm also a sucker for sports animes like Free!, Haikyuu!!, and Oofuri. My favorite video games are, as a series, Legend of Zelda and Earthbound. Other ones I like are Fire Emblem, Pokemon, and FNaF. I'm a big Nintendo fan, not as much for Playstation and Xbox.

I got into No. 6 a year or two ago, after seeing it all over my tumblr dash. I've been in love with the series since.

hmmmm... for a favorite quote,  I don't know if it can exactly count as a quote since it's longer than what most people would think a quote is, but I would probably say the speech shion says to nezumi right before he kisses him. I can't really explain why, I'm bad with words if you can't tell, but I always just liked it. For my favorite character, I love Nezumi and Shion both very much, but I think I would have to say Nezumi.

Hi Ghosty!! :D

Can I ask a personal question? ;n; what gender pronoun would you prefer? (since English is a butt).

And way to go on career goals! I'm still trying to figure my life out. ~_~

Omg, I love Free! and Haikyuu too. There's just something about those dorks. I haven't tried Oofuri though, would you recommend it? :0 also, new LoZ game is getting delayed for a better cause ;-; *weeps*

I use any of them really, but mostly they/her, thanks for asking uwu

thanks! it took me a long time to think about what I want to do, the thought of deciding was scary, since it meant me growing up, but I feel relieved to finally have a plan now.

I would definitely recommend Oofuri if you like sports anime. It's about baseball, and not only are the characters great but it made me truly like baseball. wait, did they really delay the new Legend of Zelda? noooooo Nintendo seems like it's been having issues lately, but maybe that's just me.

Good to hear from more people!! I love knowing what's going on in everyone else's lives.

If any of you ever meet me in real life, you are totally allowed to ask for a massage.

Okay, I'm finally able to answer. X'D Somehow I forget everything at the moment. And not (just) because of my advanced age...

Quote
in rural Japan as an assistant language teacher.

Woaah, super cool! (OxO) May I ask where you live? When I was in Japan (just for a month), I was in Yokohama and Tokyo, but we also stayed in Tooi for a while. That was also pretty rural. And the bus trip scared me. X'D Really, I don't understand the bus system in Japan. I was glad some Japanese friends were traveling with us... or I'd probably still be there. Somewhere...in a bus...in Japan. X'D (Well, would probably be better than being here in this....not very beautiful city. XD)
Assistant teacher sounds good... o.o A friend of mine is living in Japan, too... I started my studies together with her. She married her Japanese husbands and teaches German in a university. There were just two people in my Japanese course who managed to get a Japan related job in the end. Most of them had to drop out of college... I was also one of them, unfortunately.

So, you two are from the USA.

@Ghosty... Why do you hate Florida? o.o
A lot of people here want to take a vacation there. I don't want to go there... I guess it would be too hot. (Can't stand heat and I have a slight sun allergy... >,<) But for many people it's a pretty popular destination.

And you two like Zelda. *___* Yes!

I love tloz! What's your favorite game? I love Majora's Mask... but also Skyward Sword. (Ok, I don't like the motion controls...but the game is really nice. I know a lot of people hate the graphics, but I like them a lot. And I thought it was the first time you actually cared for Zelda, because she's Link's friend and not just a princess he has never met before in SS. ^^)
(Okay, and now imagine SS-Zelda asking SS-Link for his sperm. X'D And when he doesn't want to give it to her, she'll push him off the next cliff.)

BROOOO I love Zelda! That's what started all my nerdiness, watching my dad play Zelda II on the NES in the basement when I was a toddler... I'll be cosplaying Wind Waker Link at the Kumoricon this year (Wind Waker is my FAVORITE game).

Also screw Florida, it's way too hot even in the winter. I can't stand any heat. Even the summer in New York kills me.

Aww yessss Zelda! I'm like 3/4 of the way through Twilight Princess. I was also playing Phantom Hourglass, but the Temple of the Ocean King makes me want to throw the DS across the room so I kinda gave up on it, haha.

@Ghosty if those are the kinds of games you like, you should really really really try Ghost Trick: https://www.nintendo.co.uk/Games/Nintendo-DS/Ghost-Trick-Phantom-Detective-270880.html

It is THE BOMB.


Hahaha I can't stand the heat back home, which is why I went north for school. (I live in Maryland usually but  now im in NEw HAMPSHIRE baby!)

About you and everyone!

Florida always seems so popular to other people, but I live in an old people town in an old people state. Plus we have the worst governor ever, I weep just thinking about him. and a ton of conservatives. I never found it that hot, but I've lived here for a long time so it's probably just me.

yay! Legend of Zelda fans! hmmmmm I don't know which is my favorite. I like majoras mask a lot plot wise, but I think the three day mechanic threw me off too much. maybe Skyward Sword? or Twilight Princess? I think probably SS. I couldn't stand the motion controls either though. And I thought the graphics were beautiful. And I also loved how it was the first game that made you actually excited for seeing Zelda again.

omg, Zelda totally would. she probably pushes him off all the time XD

I got my Zelda nerdiness from my parents as well, especially my mom. I finally got around to finishing Wind Waker this summer, and though i found it was too long (I played the gamecube version so it was even longer) my favorite part of the game was that it was absolutely beautiful, the graphics were amazing.

ooo Ghost Trick sounds cool, I'll definitely check it out, thanks!

I loved how long Wind Waker was, though that was kind of my "ignore the rest of the world" game in high school. Bad day? Time for Wind Waker. I don't have any consoles anymore, but if I did, I'd still be playing Wind Waker. Take out all my stress making little link chop up grass with his sword.

@Ghosty
Ohh o.o Too bad... Do you want to move away from there one day? Where would you like to live instead?

---

Oh yeah... it's hard when you play Majora's Mask blind...but I think it's pretty cool when you know that game well and when you know what you have to do when... ^^ It's just so dark and sad and cool... ;_; (Ok, usually I don't like sad stuff that much, but I really like all these different side stories... some of them are soo sad and some of them so beautiful... For example Anju's and Kafei's quest... )

But Wind Waker is also really beautiful. ^^ I've never played it; I've just watched Let's Play's, but I really like it. The design is beautiful...the music is great... and I totally love Medoly. ^^

I think most of the Zelda games are really great. Ok, there are exceptions, for example "Wand of Camelon..." Urgh!!! Those CDI games are not okay! XD (And that horrible Zelda cartoon either. OMFG!)

Ah, has one of you guys visited the "Symphony of Goddesses" concert? Since most performances were held in the United States... If you ever have to chance to visit one, I can totally recommend it! I went there...I think 2 years ago when it was held in Berlin and it was soooo great! IT WAS WONDERFUL! AFSFGDHRKDLDL!

Hm...I started to love Zelda when my mom borrowed a N64 console and Ocarina of Time from the video store for me. And I was like: "Look, mom! LOOK MOM! I can do a backflip! LOOK! LOOK MOM IT'S RAINING OMG!"  X'D
I wanted a N64 then, but I got a super nintendo and "A Link to the Past"... Ok, that's also a very cool Zelda game... (although I don't know why Link's hair is pink X'D rebellious phase or something? XD) But well, after a while my mom stole my Super Nintendo, because she wanted to play Kirby... ^^ And I got a secondhand N64 and Majora's Mask, yay! X'D

@Ahiku: I live in Shimane! It's known for having the most amount of old people in Japan XD (so if you have seen Totoro or Princess Mononoke, that is pretty much a good impression of where I live.)

@Vox: YES TO GHOST TRICK. Ghost trick also reminds me of Ace Attorney and Prof Layton. XD

I LOVE Skyward Sword. The graphics were simpler and not as detailed as Twilight Princess, but I thought the coloring made it friendlier for everyone. (And also all dat Zelink yaaaaaaas) I'm still your Zelda. I don't know if I could choose between SS or OoT, they're both so good. ;_; (have people read the Zelda Mangas? The art is amazing *_*)

I've never tried Majora's Mask, would you recommend it? I played Ocarina so I want to play MM too, but it's also so incredibly dark and seemingly scary at the same time. XD;;  I haven't played Wind Waker either.... ;___;

I have not even heard of Wand of Camelon LOL and I'm not sure if I want to.
and EXCUUUUSE ME, PRINCESS. If the cartoon didn't exist, we wouldn't have that amazing line.

Omg I highly recommend the Symphony of the Goddess too. I went a few year ago (around the time when Skyward Sword came out) and I almost cried when they played the SS medley. The atmosphere and everyone cheering and crying at the same time is a very sublime experience.

@Ahiku
hmmmm I don't know where I would want to move to. The college I'm aiming at is in Florida as well, since its all I've ever known. I want to travel to other places someday, but the exact location to me never mattered quite as much.

I'm actually a really big fan of dark themes, especially in stuff that's not meant to be dark. I loved how Majoras Mask wasn't afraid to touch topics most kids games wouldn't touch. I would definitely recommend it.

Someday, I hope to play one of the CDI games just so I can truly experience the atrocity for myself. Man, they were so bad. And I actually did watch the Legend of Zelda cartoon. Link is soooooo out of character, and that's just scratching the surface of its problems...

I really want to visit one of the Syphony Concerts, but I can't figure out how to find out about locations or tickets. is it just on nintendo's website?

omg, I LOVE the Legend of Zelda mangas! I've cried over every one I've read. (ok I can get emotional pretty easily but that's not the point) I especially loved the Four Swords ones.
