Wow, a lot of EST people... maybe we just all have really different schedules?

Haha, yeah! Everybody welcome in the band! XD

I feel like I'm impeding on a conversation here, but this is probably the only place I'll be able to post without getting lost ; m ;

Hello, I'm Kaeiri (aka Sei), and I always somehow end up adoring everyone and everything. I don't really know how it happens, but it... does?

I've watched No.6 in a day after my friend from another fandom managed to convince me into marathoning the series in a day, and I think I started using my anime blog this summer mainly because of it. So far, I've only watched the anime, but I'm hoping to read the novel soon. Unfortunately, I'm not quite sure the manga is available in the US, and I think the only way to catch up to the end of it would be to read Chinese scans online, which I... could do, but depending on the content, it may take a whole lot of brain power ; u ;

Errm, I'll just... throw in some random info, I guess. I'm in my last year of high school, and I live on the west coast of the United States. My MTBI type is INFJ. I'm sort of just mediocre at everything I do... except math. I'm just plain lost with math. I can play the piano, violin, and guitar, although none very well. I used to draw a bit for one of my old fandoms, but I've had an extended stagnated period where either I'm unable to draw because I'm busy, or can't come up with anything particularly decent when I'm not. Maybe in the next few days I'll be able to draw again, since I'll finally be finished with college applications and moving on with Thanksgiving break ; w ; !!

Anyway, you all seem really, really great, and I hope we'll become good friends!! . w .

Hello!! Welcome @Kaeri! It's no problem, feel free to join any ongoing conversation here^^

I'm pretty sure you can get the English manga in the US, I think many members here are from the US and might be able to give you more information, but maybe Amazon is a good place to start looking? The 9 volumes have been translated now, so you can fully catch up!

@this-is-our-truth (and all the others^^) my timezone is hum... Western Europe? (I think it's GMT+1 but well), and I can say that at least Ahiku, listenforthelove and lawlya are also in W Europe.

@ Kaeri: You're always welcome to jump into the conversation around here, basically! Welcome to the forum!

I'm one of the forum member that lives in the US, but I live in an East Coast state (in the mountains for college right now though). The manga is available on Amazon, and they actually have it in the manga section in Barnes & Noble stores. I have all nine volumes ^^
Also, good luck on your college applications! 

@ Yueyn: That makes a lot of sense, actually. It looks like we're almost split between Western Europe and EST.

@Kaeri
Hello and welcome! :3 Yeah, we're even able to get the English No. 6 mangas via amazon in Germany, so you should be able to manage it too. Even though buying 9 volumes is expensive, they're definitely worth every penny.

Yeah, it should be CET. ^^
Good thing that we have our forum. XD Our posts won't run away, even though one group of us is not online.

Ah, new members! That's great~ welcome to you two, @Enokizu and @Kaeri! It's great to see you here and I hope you'll enjoy your stay ^_^

@Kaeri: Getting the manga in the US shouldn't be that difficult, I'm sure! Amazon and some big store chains carry manga, as mentioned by the others, and you can also try bookdepository. Here's a direct link. And of course, you can always give the local book store a try! If you have the ISBN, they can probably order it for you even if the store doesn't usually carry manga.

WAH sorry I've been doing a bunch of college stuff and haven't opened my computer since the last time I was on here (ᗒᗩᗕ)՞ I live in Arizona which has it's own special timezone (UTC-07:00)

@Yuneyn
Thank you so much! ≧(´▽`)≦

@Ahiku
Opera is so neat! My great grandmother was an opera singer (my mom insists that's where my "natural talent" for music comes from). I am ridiculously young!! I had my first role in theater when I was three years old (even though I don't really remember anything about it, I just know I was three) which makes me 17 (^◇^;) I'm super fortunate not to have that severe of a case of amnesia! I just have very few childhood memories and I'm very spacey (๑´•ω • `๑)

@Vox
Oh I wonder! The kind of amnesia I have is very odd, but my post-amnesia self isn't a great change from pre-amnesia! I still have the same interests I used to have! And unfortunately not, the closest I have is photos ੨( ・᷄ ︵・᷅ )シ I welcome the questions! I just feel like I'm being misleading, It's not really that interesting! ๑•́ㅿ•̀๑)

@this-is-our-truth
I'd love to see your cosplays when they happen!! I'm making one of my tall friends cosplay Rikiga, because it's hard for me to find people to cosplay with that aren't shorter than me ( ̄◇ ̄;)

@Kaeri
Hello! I'm Ame, it's a pleasure to meet you! ᘛ⁐̤ᕐᐷ

@Yuneyn, @this-is-our-truth, @Ahiku, @listenforthelove: Thanks; I'm glad to be here!
Also, thanks for the info! It seems that the better alternative is for me to buy them online, since the closest bookstore is a city away and I wouldn't have sufficient transportation for that. Either way, I'm sure the books will definitely worth the read (and re-reads)!

@Ame: Thank you!! Might I ask, are you also working on college apps, or are you drowning in actual college work? ; m ;

Hey everyone! I'm Isabella and I joined because I saw the Secret Santa post on my dash on Tumblr and I just... HAD to join! I took a quick look around at this forum, and it's so great and everyone seems so nice ^.^ I was introduced to No. 6 a few months ago by a friend of mine, and I just... binge-watched/read anything I could get my hands on XD  I can't wait to get to know y'all better :)


Anyway, uhh... I live in Italy and go to an arts specialized high school (Wow, looking now I'm hella younger than a lot of you o.o), I really want to work in animation or comic industry someday...

I draw a lot, and here is the No.& fanart I've posted so far on my blog http://blackberrymilkshake.tumblr.com/tagged/no.-6-fanart

I'm really excited to participate in the Secret Santa event and I can't wait to get to know y'all better :)

@Blackberrymilkshake Hi! Nice to meet you! :3

We're adding on to our international members club XD we've got representatives from at least four different European countries now. (If you count me, anyway.)

Aww you're young o3o The rest of us are so old because once you're in this fandom, you never leave *ominous violins*
It's good for you though... you can pick the brains of all us old people for life advice and whatnot xD
(I'm only a college kid shhh)

@Ame to a writer, the concept of amnesia is fascinating. I'd ask you a bajillion more questions if it wasn't a rude invasion of privacy XD

@Kaeri hello, nice to meet you! Oh gosh, so many new people on the forum >w< It's great :D

It's so nice to have new members around, I hope the community grows and we can have nice discussions about No.6 (and anything else!)

Hello, @blackberrymilkshake and welcome here! ^^ Ahhh, I remember your art, you were the one who submitted it to us!

Hello, @blackberrymilkshake and welcome here! ^^ Ahhh, I remember your art, you were the one who submitted it to us. :3 Omg, you’re still so young, I feel so horribly old. *grabs Yuneyn, hugs her and cries forever while Vox’s ominous violins are playing horribly sad melodies*

@Vox
I never answered this question of yours:

Quote
@Ahiku your mom is an opera singer? is that why you know how to sing?

To be honest, I totally suck and know nothing about singing. I’m just a bloody amateur. My mother studied voice and she even had students when she was younger, but she never really tried to teach me… I was never really interested in singing. I had to learn playing the piano and flute, but I sucked. I hated it. XD I was too stupid to read music and cheated my way through piano examinations by remembering what the teacher did. I just replayed it then. X’D The teacher always said I have a good ear for music. But after a while my mother accepted that I didn’t like doing this and didn’t force me anymore. I liked drawing better and I spent most of my free time with Red Cross activities. But in 2008 I started to like voice acting and after a while I also started to sing Japanese cover songs. It was fun, because I think Japanese songs fit my voice best. I don’t have a powerful voice like my mom used to have… and yes, she was an opera singer, alto 2, deeper than normal alto. My father was also an opera singer, tenor. My grandmother (alto) and my grandfather (I have no clue… but I think he was a baritone), I was still pretty small when they were active singers, but the two of them were just amateurs. When it comes to music, I’m the bad seed in my family. XD When you sing a song; my grandma can instantly sing harmonies. It’s crazy.

@Ame

Ohh, nice! :3 I have no idea what kind of jobs my great grandmother had, but I know that I share my birthday with her. ^^° My family has a lot of crazy timings. My cousin and the mother of his mother share their birthdays, I share my birthday with the mother of my maternal grandpa, my maternal grandpa shares his death-day with the death-day of my grandma’s mother and my father’s death-day date is like my birthday, but the other way round… o_o (Ah, don’t worry, I’m like Shion. I didn’t know him and I didn’t miss him, just saw him 2-3 times… But I have the death certificate, because you need this stuff…) He died 7/3 and my birthday is 3/7. @.@ *hears the ominous violins again*

But ahh, you’re still so young and you have achieved a lot in your young life. That’s amazing. ^^ AndIfeellikealoserwhenIreaditXD.

Although I have half the mind to hit you with a baguette for saying that you suck when your voice is so beautiful. You don't suck!! Damnit.
(ノ≧∇≦)ノ ミ ┸┸

And while we're on this subject, no one here sucks and you're all beautiful and talented!

(Yes I had sudden loving feelings for this community and I also found a great website with awesome emoticons, ain't that nice^^)

No! >,< No fighting baguette! |- (゚Д゚) *hides behind the table*
I just said that I suck in comparison with my family. (;_;) And thanks to my January ninja virus I'm still getting hoarse pretty quickly. (._.)

Ahhh, all those emoticons are so cute!

I also wanna post one...
