I think the english dub just tainted it for everyone, and that was, for a lot of us I think, the last taste we got of the anime and it kind of left us like "...no....." Plus we're all spoiled rotten with a fantastic manga and novel series so we're like "jeez, the anime could be SO MUCH BETTER..." IDK, I'm really sick today and I don't know where I'm going with that exactly.

I think that the anime was good until the ending, when they realised that they were running out of time and money. It's a shame, really...
I also noticed this time that some of their music choices are very questionable XD
I really hope this gets a remake one day. I would be sooooooooooooo happy if that happened. It would be amazing.
if only I knew how to animate

Oh MAN I wanna do some covers of the soundtrack... Also a lot of it is just ambient sort of... synthesized ~dystopian sounds~. Not exactly anything to groove to.

I have noticed a couple of really nice tracks... like the one where they're dancing, for example. I think that's my favourite so far...
Something I thought was really clever was how all their ominous music has sounds like bees buzzing in it...
But when there are no reason for there to be bees, they really overdo the violins XD At the end of the 6th episode I thought for a moment that Shion was playing a violin or something before I realised that they were just being overly dramatic XD

Anime wasn't so bad, it was just too cut, it all happen too fast to enjoy it fully. StillI really like anime ending I know that Shion geting shot and coming back to life is idiotic but I like that they show that Nezumi really loved and cared for Shion so he stay behind with him. I novel I really feel most of time that Nezumi was ass to Shion and he only was 'destroy no.6, destroy' and at the end 'shion is man of past, goodbye I don't care and go away'.
Manga's Nezumi was between one of novel and anime I my view.

Second half of ep6 was my best  partwhen it comes to show story, second will be dancing scene.

It's also all synthesized, which makes sense in terms of both plot (everything is fabricated) and budget (one person on a synth is way cheaper than an orchestra). So yeah, synths can't do the "subtlety" thing so well. There are some pieces I want to hear on acoustic instruments just because of that.

I think it would be so cool to hear the songs from No. 6 but Weisel-ified/better XD
We should just get Ahiku and her dubbing crew to redub the entire anime XD I'm sure they could do a better job than the actual English voice cast... sad to say =.=

Fun fact: Les Misérables was originally entirely synthesized. So if they can make their soundtrack better, so can we XD

Also, it would be cool to hear some remixes of the 2 theme songs and Kaze no Requiem...

I'm arranging Kaze no Requiem for a friend who plays electric guitar (who I met through Melodic Minor!), so SOMETIME I'll have that done and she'll learn it... I'm working on the harmony for it right now, but my friend can't read music so it's tricky. I don't play guitar so it's even slower for me to write it out. I basically write out the fret number on a string within a certain space to denote the rhythm... Anyway, it'll sound cool when it's done. And I want to arrange Hibi no Itonami to be like this happy rock song like you'd hear as an anime opening for a slice of life series. And that would be the opening for my West Block High cosplay series DAMMIT I NEVER STARTED THAT THREAD.

If you ever need someone to play piano or keyboard, I got u. And I CAN read music, too. :3
(And tbh I really want an excuse to go play, because I haven't in a long time...)

I can't wait to hear what you guys come up with! It sounds really cool o3o

Cool! I used to play piano but I can't read music fast enough (or with more than one notes at once) anymore, so I just... can't. Sort of exactly like how I can't find my house sometimes or read words right the first time. I just have to work everything slowly and redo it all ten times.

@Weisel Ah, I'm sorry, that sounds like such a pain :( I hope that in the future you're able to get your abilities back ^^;;
I can't play piano because I don't have a piano... XD but even so, that's nothing compared to what you're dealing with... :I

@Weisel
Oh god, I also can't read music fast enough. X'D My mom forced me to play the piano when I was in elementary school, but I was too stupid to learn the bass clef and just played by ear. X'D LOL. Okay, my teacher always praised me because I was able to play by ear.... god, and now I'd like to play the piano... I did it when I was around your age, just for fun. ^^° Not very good, though.
I also played the flute, but hated it. X'D And also a harmonica, but also just for fun. Well, I need an instrument, I think it's pretty relaxing... as long as you don't need to force yourself.

Ah, I always wanted to dub a scene with my crew... but well... I dunno. X'D I wanted to give Safu my voice, but I think I sound... a bit too young. orz (Man, I'm like...12 years older, I should choose a scene with Lili... I'm sure could be a good Lili! X'D)  And even though I have a good choice for Nezumi... we don't have a proper Shion. x_x° The only one I could imagine doesn't want to dub anymore. But if I ever manage to direct a No. 6 clip, I'll show you guys... even though you won't understand a word. >_<

@Ahiku your German dub of that one studio ghibli/anime video was actually really great... I couldn't understand what you were saying but it was really fun to listen to for whatever reason xD I guess if you can't understand the words, you really have to judge the quality of the voices instead... and you guys did a great job o3o

I'm a p. mediocre voice actress... I'm not sure who I could dub if I had to pick someone... probably Karan, IDK. My voice sucks anyway xD

@Vox
Thank you! :D (Btw. I was Mei... the little girl in the very first clip.)
Hm...I prefer higher roles... just like the little Japanese girl here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5mic5sA2GcA
(Haha XD go and watch minute 5:30... I'm saying crossing fingers in crappy French. X'D
Ah, and it's also a singing clip. o.o I think this song is really nice... I'm just singing the beginning of the song, then the friend who's lending her voice to the older character is singing... I love her singing voice, it's sooo beautiful. >,<
Well, I prefer speaking characters like Yune... very calm and with a high voice. ^^

When I speak with my low voice... it's like in this Sailor Moon clip. (I'm Ami ^^°°°)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zc3ZOOXbgbc
Even though it's my normal voice, it's really hard to play properly with it...

And no, your voice doesn't suck ok! >,< Well, try to speak a little bit higher, it's easier to play with your voice then. :D

Hello guys!

So I don't usually post this sort of thing, but I'm assuming a lot of us here love Japan dearly and were saddened by the Tohoku earthquake and tsunami 4 years ago.

Yahoo Japan is holding a campaign to generate donations. All you have to do is go to this page: http://search.yahoo.co.jp/ and type a search with "3.11" in it. That's all, Yahoo will then give 10yen for each search. (Which sounds small, but if many people participate it can grow into a lot more! Last year they got more than 25,000,000yen!)

The deadline is 14:59 UTC on March 11th. If you love Japan and have a few seconds to spare, don't hesitate to do it :) Thanks!
