Title: Welcome new members!!
Post by: Yuneyn on October 28, 2014, 06:49:06 am
Hello everyone!!

Since this is the "second birth" of this forum, I thought it would be nice to do a new introduction post so that anyone joining now won't have the impression that every post is very old.

New members, feel free to introduce yourself here! Tell us about yourself, your love for No.6, anything you want :)

Might as well introduce myself here!

Hi, I'm Ariane and I joined the forum because I saw there was a secret Santa event and since I adore NO.6, I couldn't resist! I'm not so familiar with forums, so it might take a while for me to get used to it, but I do want to try to be active on here! Some of you may know me from my Tumblr (http://enokizu.tumblr.com/) although I unfortunately haven't done much for the fandom apart from this poster. (http://enokizu.tumblr.com/post/59134515454/welcome-to-no-6) I'm quiet but I've been around for more than a year now so I know a bunch of you guys!

I'm a fan of NO.6, I have read the novels and the manga, but I haven't been able to watch the whole anime yet, I was kind of turned off by it and how they tried to squeeze all of the story in eleven episode, I felt the growth of Shion and Nezumi's relationship was rushed.

Other than that I'm a literature student, I live in Canada and I'm a french speaker, but also fluent in English. I have a passion for arts and I enjoy creating things. I play a bunch of instruments and love writing short stories. I also draw from time to time, but my biggest passion remains music. (I'm quite bad at presenting myself so I'll just link my Tumblr's about me (http://enokizu.tumblr.com/about) for the rest sorry haha. )

Finally, one of the thing I love the most in life is being able to share my passion with people and talk about the things I read and watch, so this forum sounds amazing to me! I'm glad to be there, nice to meet all of you!

@Enokizu Welcome!

Hey, I totally drafted that poster on our blog already. I thought it was really cool!
Aww yeah, another French speaker! :D Bonjour~

It's nice to meet you. I hope you like it here. =)

@Vox

Salut! I'm glad you liked my poster! I had others idea planned with NO.6's logos, but I haven't got them done yet. I'm a terrible procrastinator hahaha.

@Ahiku

Hi Ahiku! I have already sent a message to Lawlya on the matter! Just to be sure, the only thing I had to say was that I was interested in joining, right? Or do I have to pick a "theme" or something? and I'll be sure to ask questions if I get any problems!

@Yuneyn

Sure, I will start new threads! When my semester is done with and I can finally relax haha! Also thank you very much, I'm glad you like my blog!

To all of you, thank you for the warm welcome! ^^

Please make them, I'm sure they'll be awesome >w<
Also, like we told Pirra, if there are any old threads on here that you feel like reviving, feel free to do so. People will answer. Thanks to the magical 'show unread posts' button XD

Post by: Ahiku on November 23, 2014, 02:05:11 pm
@Enokizu

Ah, we also need a request. The person who will make a fanwork for you needs to know what you'd like to have as a gift. ^^
Title: Re: Welcome new members!!
Post by: Enokizu on November 23, 2014, 02:10:07 pm
@Ahiku

Oh, but I really don't know! (;´Д`)!!  Requesting something I mean, it's a gift I don't mind I don't want to impose something to the person! Uh, would you guys have any ideas? Like what am I supposed to say, a theme, a scene? If you'd give me examples I'd really like it! 。:゚(。ノω\。)゚・。
Title: Re: Welcome new members!!
Post by: Vox on November 23, 2014, 02:24:29 pm
@Enokizu We have got a prompts thread, if you'd care to check it out. But yeah, you could also request a certain scene from the novels or whatever if you wanted. You could request an AU or something. Or you could just give a prompt, like your favourite No. 6 quote, or a song that you think fits them, or a cute outfit you think one of them would wear... (that last is a bit harder for a writer, but you never know!) tbh, those are my favourite kinds of prompts. stuff that reminds you of what you want, or gives you a certain feeling o3o
Oh yeah, and you don't have to ask for Nezumi or Shion, either... if you'd rather see Inukashi or Safu or Karan or somebody, you could just specify their name and that would probably be enough of a prompt.

also, that emoji is adorbs. please never stop using emojis XD
Title: Re: Welcome new members!!
Post by: Enokizu on November 23, 2014, 02:36:44 pm
@Vox (http://no6.createaforum.com/index.php?action=profile;u=16) Alright, thank you so much for the ideas! I already have a few in mind right now... I'll think about it and send Lawlya another message later today! This is going to be really fun I can't wait to receive my prompt! (* >ω<)

(yeah I really like these emojis too haha! (。・//ε//・。))

Post by: Ame on November 23, 2014, 02:56:04 pm
Oh goodness this thread is active right now- I might finally be brave enough to post on here! (my girlfriend and my best friend are bulling me about not posting lmao)

Hello everyone, I'm Ame! I've been going on forums since 2007 and I've never been this shy about introducing myself, no.6 is really important to me and you all seem so neat (╯•﹏•╰)

I'm nezumeme everywhere ('cept for 8tracks where I'm nezushis) and I'm a cosplayer (I have what....14 no.6 cosplays planned? Don't look at me-) I've been in this fandom since the anime first started airing! Did anyone else watch the last episode with the incorrect subs? Nezumi said "Well never meet again" in the version I watched. . .it was terrible- I read the novels in mid 2012 and the manga shortly after! Nezumi is my favourite character in any piece of fiction ever, and no.6 is my favourite series ever (primarily the novels, but I have praise about the anime too) and just! Ah- hello!  (⁄ ⁄•⁄ω⁄•⁄ ⁄)⁄ ᘛ⁐̤ᕐᐷ
Title: Re: Welcome new members!!
Post by: Enokizu on November 23, 2014, 03:05:51 pm
@Ame

Hi Ame! I've been following you for a while and I really, really like your NO.6 cosplays... especially Eve, you make a gorgeous Eve!!! (〃▽〃) It's actually because of you that I decided to do my first cosplay as Nezumi! I'm glad to know you're on here! I'm Arie, nice to meet you. ヽ(;▽;)ノ

(I didn't watch the anime, but we'll never meet again is so terrible... oh god)
Title: Re: Welcome new members!!
Post by: Ahiku on November 23, 2014, 03:10:40 pm
Hello @Ame :3
Nice to meet you. The thread was also active before! X'D Please don't be afraid of posting stuff here. And if you want to, you could open your own thread in "Inukashi's Hotel" and share your cosplay photos with us. ^^
Have a lot of fun here.

PS: OMG, I'd kick Nezumi's flat ass when he'd really say that. >,< Poor Shion.
Title: Re: Welcome new members!!
Post by: Vox on November 23, 2014, 03:32:10 pm
@Ame HOLY FLIP, NEZUMI SAID WHAT????
Ahahaha, that's pretty much the worst translation mistake you could possibly make in that scene! Geez!
Also, hi. =)

@Ahiku 'kick Nezumi's flat ass' made me laugh, and is also totally right. Hehe.

@Ame again I would really like to see your No. 6 cosplays... could you please link us? I mean, I've probably seen them before. But I'd like to attach name to face, if I could. =)

ᘛ⁐̤ᕐᐷ
^^THAT IS THE BEST EMOJI EVER OMG YOU GUYS ARE SO COOL *flips table*

@Enokizu
Oh my goodness I don't- Even know what to say to this!!!!!!! (灬º 艸º灬) Th-thank you so much! I'm really not confident about my Eve cosplay so this comment means a lot to me! I'm revamping that costume next year (along with my other Nezumi costumes) because I want to do the manga version so I hope remaking it will help me feel better about it! And I would love to see your Nezumi cosplay! I bet you're super cute!! ฅ(*°ω°*ฅ)

It's very nice to meet you!! ヾ(@°▽°@)ノ

(worst thursday of my LIFE)

@Ahiku
Thank you so much! I'll definitely start contributing to threads, I don't know about posting my cosplays though because all my pictures are selfies ヾ( ๑´д`๑)ツ

RIGHT? I was so angry (╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻

@Vox
I COULDN'T BELIEVE IT I'M SO GLAD THAT'S NOT ACTUALLY WHAT HE SAID ( ≧Д≦)

And! I know this isn't the thread for it so I apologize in advance (warning these pictures are OLD I'm a lot hotter now) Anime Nezumi (http://nezumeme.tumblr.com/post/74101194584/beatboxes-about-how-i-dont-have-pictures-of-this) / Novel Nezumi (http://nezumeme.tumblr.com/post/76647644171/for-valentines-day-imma-eat-shion) / Eve (http://nezumeme.tumblr.com/post/78812833649/fin)

@Ame:
You're super cute! (>o<) Especially the Eve dress is great!
OMG, DUDE, THAT RILAKKUMA CAMERA! OMG, I can't...
Just imagine Nezumi with a Rilakkuma camera! X'DDDD Imagine him putting his arm around Shion's shoulder and pulling his Rilakkuma camera out of his pocket to take a selfie. We should search all scenes in the manga and hide Nezumi's knife with a rilakkuma camera. A new way of censoring violence. X'D
Title: Re: Welcome new members!!
Post by: Ame on November 23, 2014, 04:06:29 pm
@Ahiku
MY PHONE IS ICONIC- I'm convinced people only follow me for the kuma. I think the best part about this is that my Shion at the time had a Korilakkuma phone case-
I always use my phone to cover my face (http://instagram.com/p/lomXY4oZ6Z/?modal=true) and the kuma makes it cute (●´∀`●)
And OMG. . . censoring with Rilakkuma. . .that's so adorable (;*△*;)
Oh- and thank you so much for the compliment!! (๑^っ^๑)

@Ame

It's a shame you're not confident, because I think it looks so good, it's my fav! But I can understand your insecurity, we're all a bit like that (〜 ̄▽ ̄)〜 Can't wait to see the revamp! Also aaaah my cosplay isn't that great, it was a first try (and I was ooc as hell because I was so happy to be with my friends but you know, Nezumi's always so cool and stuff), but at least I had my friend as the cutest Shion to accompany me! (●´□`)♡ And I really don't have any good pictures, I'm sorry! If I find some I'll be sure to send them to you! (*´・v・)

Post by: Vox on November 23, 2014, 04:12:02 pm
I... definitely replied to this thread... did the forum eat my comment? Am I going crazy...????

Uh, well.

@Ame where is the like button in your theme? do I need to switch browsers ;n;

@Ahiku don't let 4kids hear that idea... *shudders*
Title: Re: Welcome new members!!
Post by: Ame on November 23, 2014, 04:37:02 pm
@Enokizu
Oh my goodness, I'm so out of character as Nezumi- No one ever sees me as him at cons because I'm always tucked away in corners hiding under my giant cape or sleeping on white-haired anime boys laps, when people compliment me I usually run away or blush a lot, not cool at all!! (゚A゚;) People always ask me to sing too (because I'm a retired professional singer) but I get too embarrassed!! I'm usually really flirtatious and social but when I'm Nezumi that all goes away? But I'm glad you like my Nezumi cosplay, I really appreciate your kind words! I would LOVE to see yours if you can find pictures! ❀.(*´◡`*)❀.
(Also I'm so glad someone else uses emojis as much as I do! ヾ(@^▽^@)ノ)

@Vox
Your replies are showing up for me (´ ˙○˙ `) well, at least I think so!
Where is the like button indeed. . .I never noticed that before! I'll try to fix that, but I'm really lazy with themes so we'll see if I actually do (≧▽≦);;

Ahhh, so many posts since I logged on last! Was I gone all that long? Ah, well, but it makes me so happy to see the forum so active!!
Glad to see you here @Enokizu and @Ame! I hope you have a great time here! ^^ And I think the cosplays look really great XD

Title: Re: Welcome new members!!
Post by: Enokizu on November 23, 2014, 05:12:02 pm
@Ame

I blush a lot too, it's terrible! Normally too, but while cosplaying it's ten time worse! We tried doing a photoshoot, but it was with cute poses and stuff, and I can't stare at someone without laughing or getting all red! ( ̄□ ̄;)!! Especially when I'm with cute people I mean don't make me go through this I'll die. Also sleeping on white-haired anime boys' laps sounds cool haha!

(Professional singer? That's so cool! And to say you were shy of presenting yourself on here man that's awesome! I'm only a professional looser so (´;ω;`) )

@this-is-our-truth

thank you!!!

Post by: Weisel on November 23, 2014, 05:30:37 pm
@Enokizu and @Ame HI GUYS! Welcome!!

(Also somewhere back a page there was something about fellow INFPs?? that's me, too...)

And AME! I've seen your cute cosplays around the tag before! (and 14 cosplays seems reasonable to me... I've got... I have no idea. not THAT many yet, but give it some time...)

I'm awkward and I blush a lot when I cosplay I think, but I have freckles constantly red cheeks so I usually have a ton of makeup on my face that covers that up, so when I do blush, it hardly looks like anything. Concealer doesn't help the fact that I'm awkward, though. My biggest embarrassment with cosplay though is that I'm chubby so I'm just so nervous about any pictures taken and overly critical of the pictures I see of myself.

@Enokizu
I'm an actor (been in theater for 14 years woah man) so I'm usually pretty good at keeping a straight face! But I'm EXTREMELY camera shy, I have a lot of really talented, local, photographer friends, but I'm just not cut out for being in front of a camera (I prefer stages) _ノ乙(、ン、)_ I totally get you with that cute people thing though! White-haired anime boys laps are the most comfortable places to nap if you get the chance you should try it ( ๑‾̀◡‾́)

(Ah it's not as cool as it sounds! Since I quit I've become a professional loser I'm more cut out for this life (.◜ω◝.) )

@this-is-our-truth
Thank you so much!! -(๑☆‿ ☆#)ᕗ

@Weisel
Oh my goodness thank you!! (◍•ᴗ•◍)❤ Yeah I've done well over 100 costumes (28 this year so far!) so 14 from one series doesn't sound that crazy to me! Even if they're. .almost all one character wwww. I have freckles too! So much foundation for cosplay, so much. . .I'm sorry to hear that your body type has effected your confidence in cosplaying though (。•́︿•̀。) it's really hard to shake that! I used to not cosplay the characters I wanted because of I felt my body type didn't suit the character (ALL THESE CUTE, SHORT GIRLS AND TWINKY BOYS....GRRR...) but I once I started accepting the way I look, I got much more comfortable with myself! I hope that you can experience something similar and feel comfortable and confident when you see photos of yourself! I'm sure your cosplays are downright lovely ♥~(‘▽^人)

@Weisel

Hi there! I'm the fellow INFP, nice to meet you! ( ´ ▽ ` )ノ
I am not at ease with my appearance either, so I dislike people taking pictures of me... I completely understand! But we're there to have fun, so screw that! Awkward people unite! I'm sure you look cute anyway, so don't think about it too much! There's nothing wrong with being chubby! (。•̀ᴗ-)✧
(Also, I think it would be nice to have a thread for some pics of us? If people are at ease with that, it would be fun to see what everyone looks like! But that's just me (ღ˘⌣˘ღ))

@Ame

Ah actor.... so cool! (」゜ロ゜)」 (you do sound like a real life Nezumi) Your life sounds really, really cool! I haven't done much with mine yet haha... I'm part of a band and that's pretty much it!

Title: Re: Welcome new members!!
Post by: Weisel on November 23, 2014, 06:19:12 pm
@Ame HOLY... I've done like... uh, ten cosplays this year... how do you do THAT MANY?? Also I figure the only way I'll actually be confident about my cosplays is if I lose weight. Other people can rock curvy cosplay, but I can't.

@Enokizu I usually have fun getting my picture taken but then I see the pictures later and I'm like "OH GOD NO." Also a thread would be cool... Feel free to start one! I wanna see everyone's cosplays! (btw I've called myself chubzumi because I'm just a sort of squishy Nezumi... though alternatively I'm chibizumi because I'm really short, so if you combine it, I'm chubizumi.)

(anyway, here's probably the best cosplay selfie I've managed to take in No.6 cosplay... http://41.media.tumblr.com/18c1d3c11a794c943acf438d4feb6e8f/tumblr_nbk1r7eNMp1tv2jd4o1_1280.jpg (http://41.media.tumblr.com/18c1d3c11a794c943acf438d4feb6e8f/tumblr_nbk1r7eNMp1tv2jd4o1_1280.jpg). it's the flower crown Shion one all you RC blog people have seen before.)

@Enokizu
I used to work at an outdoor theater where we'd give tours and talk about mythical creatures (that place was magical I can't put it in to words) THAT was cool, normal acting is boring (ノ_ _)ノ Being in a band sounds so neat! I used to play all kinds of instruments (Not the cool kind, though) but I can't anymore because I don't remember how (amnesia, long story). What do you do in your band? (٭°̧̧̧ω°̧̧̧٭)

(THAT NEZUMI COMMENT MADE MY ENTIRE WEEK OMG. .)

@Weisel
Cosplay is where I put all of my spare time and money! I'm lucky to live in a state with an above average amount of conventions and I live in a city that has a really neat discount fabric store, it makes my hobby A LOT more affordable! I also have way too many interests, I wanna cosplay from every series I enjoy! And if that's the only way you'll feel confident, be safe in your weight loss endeavors ヾ( ๑´д`๑)ツ but you are ADORABLE!! (Chubizumi. .omg. .)

@Weisel

Hey you don't seem to look chubby at all! Σ(゜ロ゜;) Oh and I find you super cute by the way!! You have a nice smile! (●´□`)♡

@Ame

Outdoor theater wow get out of here that's so great! I'm super jealous, I would never be able to act in front of people! I'm a theatrical person, but only with my friends! I'm too shy otherwise. It sounds really fun, this mythical creature stuff! Reminds me of a short story collection book I did with my friend last year! All the stories revolved around unknown mythical creatures, it was fun! Your troup sounds so nice and dreamy... (✖╭╮✖)
Oh gee, It sucks you forgot how to play these instruments (;*△*;) I play the clarinet in my band! But I also know how to play the piano, the violin and a bunch of wind and percussion instruments! And I compose music! But it's silly stuff, nothing too serious, it's still fun though!
Title: Re: Welcome new members!!
Post by: Vox on November 23, 2014, 09:06:57 pm
Between Enokizu and Ahiku we could start a band XD
Actually, I already wrote some song parodies for No. 6... I mean re-writing the lyrics of existing songs to make them fit the story. But I can't sing or I would've done that already.

Weisel wat r u talkin about bruh
ur cosplays r gr8 & also u r rlly cute

you can tell i'm 100% serious because i'm using text lingo
(actually i am 100% serious, please don't think i'm making fun of you. oh gog ^^;)

Seriously you guys, you only have one life. You have to fit as many cosplays into it as possible. People who don't like you or your body can go pound sand.
(Besides f*ck social beauty norms)

Ame, you had amnesia? Wow. I don't want to say that's cool, because it's probably really not. but it is certainly interesting.

Lol I'm an ENFP so I'm like all you people but you can't leave me on my own for as long XD

Title: Re: Welcome new members!!
Post by: Weisel on November 23, 2014, 10:00:50 pm
YOU GUYS NEED TO NOT COMPLIMENT ME EVER BECAUSE I DON'T KNOW HOW TO HANDLE IT OKAY??
(I mean, thank you, but-- FFFFFF)

(Also @Vox please share you parodies with me because MAYBE I can make some of them into a reality, though it won't be a necessarily pretty reality. I'LL TRY ANYWAY FOR THE SAKE OF A PARODY.)

@Enokizu
It was super neat! I haven't done it in years and live in a different city now tho 。゚( ゚இ‸இ゚)゚。 Oh man! You're so talented, that's so cool! The only instruments I have memories of playing are the saxophone and the cello, but according to the people around me I used to play everything? I'm not quite sure what exactly that means (・∧‐)ゞ And ah, music composition is so difficult! That's so amazing!!(๑✧∀✧๑)

@Vox
Resident spacey-minded amnesiac here! I've had amnesia since 2010 (I don't remember what caused it, oh the irony-) and as a result I can't smell (did you know memory and smell are in the same part of the brain? I sure as heck didn't), it's pretty interesting! I just wish I knew more about it ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Your opinions on cosplay are so on point (。♥‿♥。)

I'm ENTP, only one letter off from you! (^▽^)

@Weisel
YOU'RE PRECIOUS 乂❤‿❤乂
Title: Re: Welcome new members!!
Post by: Enokizu on November 23, 2014, 10:24:20 pm
@Ame

The cello is such a beautiful instrument, I'd choose it over the violin anytime! (I was young when I picked the violin and chose it almost randomly, because my mom thought that would be nice haha) And you must have mastered a lot of instruments! That's my ultimate goal, learn as many instruments as I can! <( ̄︶ ̄)> (and publish a book, that'd be cool too) You should try to play these instruments again! It would be a shame if you didn't! music is so, so nice. (´▽`ʃƪ)♡

@Weisel

YOU'RE REALLY GODDAMN CUTE GOSH STOP THIS
Title: Re: Welcome new members!!
Post by: Weisel on November 23, 2014, 10:31:30 pm
@Ame Oh wow... I didn't know that smell and memory were that connected, but that explains something for me. I've accidentally blocked out a lot of memories from my childhood, and for a long time I couldn't smell most of the time, but lately I've been remembering more and more of these things and I've noticed that I can smell a lot of the time, too... THE HUMAN BODY IS SO INTERESTING.

Also @ the rest of you YOU KIDS NEED TO STOP THIS I CAN'T TAKE COMPLIMENTS I'LL CRY

First, I hate timezones, it's like all the conversations happen when I'm asleep lol^^

@Ame Welcome to you too!!! And your cosplays are really nice, thanks for sharing!

My personality type is ISFP. Am I alone with this type? X'D

@Ame
14 years theater? Sounds pretty cool. My mom was an opera singer... so I spent a lot of my childhood there. XD Sometimes she took me along.
When did you start being an actor...o.o (How old are you now?) Amnesia sounds horrible. o_o But you seem to have a very exiting life.

@all
You all look cute and beautiful! >,< Extremely cute and even more beautiful. Period!

@If you see me on this message board today, tell me to go away. Please, my grade depends on it XD

it's the no. 6 body appreciation club! x3

fun story: when i was at otakon, I saw a solitary Shion/Nezumi pair, who I have photos of. Both of them were a bit on the overweight side. But you know what? They fuckin' made my convention. Out of all the tens of thousands of people attending the convention, two of them had decided to be some of my favourite characters. They were really nice and chill, too. I asked them how they got into No. 6 and we exchanged tumblrs... Anyway, it wouldn't have mattered to me if they had four eyes and webbed feet. Or bee wings. So yeah. If you're in a fandom this small and you like to cosplay, you should do it. Because a fan seeing you out somewhere isn't going to go, 'oh look, an overweight cosplayer. haha, loser.' they're going to go 'HOLY SH*T IT'S SHION! HOLY SH*T IT'S NEZUMI! CAN I HAVE YOUR F*CKING AUTOGRAPH!'
(I practically jumped over a barrier to get to them, and I was wearing 2.5 inch heels ;A; my ankles regretted that one XD)

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

@Weisel I'll try and figure out where I saved all of them XD I actually thought of you when I was writing them. But it'll have to wait 'till Thanksgiving break. Don't let me forget ;w;
I'm so tempted to try and animate No. 6 Konbini Store but that would take forever XD
P.S. Weisel Appreciation Society FTW

@Enokizu You have really cool dreams. Wow. I hope you achieve them, that's amazing.
(Writing a novel isn't so bad... the hard part is editing the d*mn thing...)

@Ame I wonder if re-learning to play an instrument would trigger any memories for you... unless you have the kind of amnesia where you are actually no longer the same person as before, and have totally different interests and things... Do you have access to recordings of yourself playing? Sorry, I hope I'm not being too nosy. I'm just really interested in psychology ^^;;

I feel like I'm hopping into a conversation here, but hey, I guess this is what this forum is for!

Quote
First, I hate timezones, it's like all the conversations happen when I'm asleep lol^^

Ah, same here, sometimes. That or it all happens while I'm in class and can't be around... Just out of curiosity, what are all of our timezones?

@ Wiesel: Hmm... I don't know. I'm an INFJ. We might both be on our own ;;

As for chubby cosplayers, heck yeah! Cosplay anything you want, and rock it! You'll look freaking adorable! And I know people will be happy to see you from small fandoms like this... I've never seen a Nezumi or Shion cosplayer at a con... though I'm going to make sure Animazement next year has a Nezumi and Shion. XD I'm going as Nezumi and my best friend is being Shion... and we might even have a Rikiga. (I'm so excited!)

Also, more music people, yay!! I play a lot of different instruments too! Not as much since I got into college though ^^ They usually get mad at us for playing them in the dorms here, and I don't have room for a bunch of instruments in my room :(

@this-is-our-truth

A Rikiga cosplayer sounds awesome! You're lucky! Also my timezone is EST! And it's a shame your dorm is not so much for musicians... music is so fun! And it's also a great way to relax after stuyding and stuff! ( ´ ▽ ` ) But I can understand the lack of space and also if you're in college it's probably a lack of time too...

@ Enokizu

Thanks! I'm really excited about it! I'm just lucky to have some great friends, I think ^^  Oh! My timezone is EST as well!

Ah, it is a bit unfortunate. I brought a few instruments last year and some people got pretty annoyed. I still brought my violin though! You're right about the time though. I've only gotten to play once the entire semester! ;-;

Aaaah they shouldn't get so annoyed! I mean unless you play at 2 AM, what's wrong with a little bit of music? It's a shame, really :<

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 (http://maruka.co.vu) 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.
Title: Re: Welcome new members!!
Post by: this-is-our-truth on November 25, 2014, 10:13:59 am
@ 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.
Title: Re: Welcome new members!!
Post by: Ahiku on November 25, 2014, 12:19:27 pm
@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.

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. (http://www.bookdepository.com/search?searchTerm=no.+6+asano&search=Find+book&_source=Affiliate_WindowUS&utm_medium=Affiliate_Marketing&utm_campaign=85386&awc=5487_1414208939_a4a5037e1708ec70a72a78c41a075883) 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 ( ̄◇ ̄;)

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

@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.

@Kaeri
I got into the first college I applied to(⌒▽⌒ゞ I've been out of school for a year so I'm forcing myself to brush up on my academic skills before I have to go back! But mostly I've been busy with the process of starting college (assessments, forms, oRIENTATION;;;;;;) I tested into super high writing and reading classes when I don't plan to take either this semester, and my adviser is trying to convince me to take writing so when I go to campus I have to sneak around so she doesn't see me (ペ◇゚)」

Best of luck with applications though! I hope you get your college of choice!! ⊂((・▽・))⊃

@blackberrymilkshake
Hello I'm Ame! Your art is stunning! ( ゚▽゚)/

@Vox
I had a conversation with my best friend about my amnesia last night, apparently when I told him about it he asked me a lot of questions, but I don't remember having the conversation! Maybe I do get questions often....but I just don't remember....*more ominous violins* (≧∇≦);;

@Ahiku
Woah! That date thing is so neat! In my family I use the difference in our ages to remember how old everyone is (My father is 30 years older than my brother, my brother is 14 months older than me, and my mom is 2 years younger than my father!) (๑^っ^๑)

And I really haven't done much, I'm just good at conveniently mentioning the most bizarre things about me to make me seem cooler, it's all a trick, I'm really just a kid who sews a lot of goes to a bunch of conventions (⊙ヮ⊙);;

Oh I also wanted to mention! As someone who has made a profession out of singing, and has been apart of 4 different choirs, your voice is one of the most beautiful I've ever heard! You've certainly got me out done, the only thing I've got going for me is my range (which is 4 octaves, but 5 if you squint) I hope to hear more of your voice! In covers and voice acting! ヾ(o≧∀≦o)ノ゙

got2b glued freeze spray is the most wig-compatible hairspray you can buy! I'd also steer away from hairgels, they're supposed to react to the natural oils in human hair, which doesn't have the same result on wigs!

Ha, that's the hairspray I use... Though I didn't have it until recently and I was just using whatever hairspray I could get my hands on (which was WEAK), so the last time I styled my wig I underestimated the power of it... so now my Nezumi wig is styled a little too small and the ponytail is literally defying gravity. I DO have a tutorial using normal hairspray, but I don't know how useful it necessarily is for anyone else. It's the method I use, but I'm no pro. (my struggle now is that half my body is numb as of a couple months ago, so it's hard to hold hair in my right hand without it slipping out.)

@Yuneyn BRING OUT THE WAR BAGUETTE omg how much more french can we get XD

Ominous violins is gonna be an inside joke now, isn't it? XD

@Enokizu I'm afraid that in order to participate in the highly serious (WAR BAGUETTE) discussions and (OMINOUS VIOLINS) conversations on this forum, you must pass a very rigorous test. You will be examined. You will be measured. YOU WILL BE JUDGED.
Now here's the test....
DO YOU LIKE NO. 6?!?!?!?!?!

...You do?
Ok, good, you belong here. Welcome! :D

@Ame ahhh, good luck with college things! I hope everything goes well for you! (If there's anything I can help you with, don't hesitate to PM me, I love talking about college XD)
Also uh... mentioning interesting things about yourself is like a normal conversation strategy? I mean, why would you talk about things about yourself that aren't interesting?
"Hi, nice to meet you, I like tuna fish sandwiches."
"Uh. Ok."
Short conversation, huh? XD

@Weisel what are you going to do about the Nezumi wig being too small? It isn't irreparable, is it? (That would be baaaaaaaad D:)

Title: Re: Welcome new members!!
Post by: Weisel on November 27, 2014, 11:30:30 am
@Vox I'M CRYING OVER YOUR TEST... Also it won't be a problem to fix the wig. I styled it on my wig form (which is a little smaller than my own head) and sprayed it to stay in place with my new hairspray and when I went to put it on, the ponytail was styled too tight (since I usually have weak hairspray that lets it loosen up). So I just have to wash it and try it again. Not a problem to do. My only frustration with that is that it's hard to use my right hand without dropping stuff (like fine silky wig hairs) and this is definitely a two handed task.
Title: Re: Welcome new members!!
Post by: Yuneyn on November 27, 2014, 11:41:05 am
@Vox OMG YOUR TEST IS AWESOME!!
Haha the war baguette^^ This is something we came up with about last year with Ahiku... talking about country stereotypes and how a lot of people imagine that French people walk around wearing berets and holding a baguette, and also drink wine at every meal (one of my students was actually very disappointed when I told him that last one was false, and that I also didn't like wine haha). Well, in the end, the fighting baguette was born, and it's very convenient to beat people up!

Ahh, thank you so much! ;_;  Sometimes I share some of my old fancover on my private blog. (ahikusblog). Like here: http://ahikusblog.tumblr.com/post/95830984239/yakitate-no-japan-german-fanduet-by-tialora (something I’ve covered together with a friend^^ She’s singing the lower parts. But it’s in German.

Wow, you have a really impressive range! O_O I have just a small one… just can’t sing a lot of songs, because they are too low for my voice.

@Vox
Ahh, the test XDDDD Lol!
As for the baguette fighting, we even have a picture XD

Also @Vox I don't have any cosplay friends where I live and I don't think my roommates would help with something like that... So I just need to be really REALLY patient with myself.

Did you know if you leave a wig in a ponytail for 2+ years when you try to wear it down it looks STUPID. (I'm just wanted to get in this cosplay for snapchat cries) (https://38.media.tumblr.com/9e015c0d7273fa031bf2c64a223915f0/tumblr_nfpuudDrIL1qmh2ojo1_1280.jpg)

@Weisel
I'VE BEEN THERE. Maybe try bulking out your wig head? Measure the circumference of your head and tape around balled up newspaper until it's your head size! I do that for stay-put styling jobs! I have a normal wig head that I use for cutting and lace-fronting and other things (-^〇^-)

I'm curious about what happened but I don't want to be invasive, I'm sorry you have to deal with something like that ヾ(´゚Д゚`;)ゝ

@Vox
I might take you up on that college thing! I'm kinda anxious but super excited because I love school!

Ah that's so true!! I guess I see people talk about their interests more than themselves (≧▽≦)

@Ahiku
Both of these are beautiful!! Strength is such a good song (X is such a great series, I need to reread it!) (♥ω♥*)

Post by: Weisel on November 27, 2014, 06:08:27 pm
@Vox thanks!

@Ame I'll have to try that! It's just the slightest bit too small, and I never had that problem before because I was using weak enough hairspray that a little adjusting would make it just fine (though the style was more easily messed up than with the super duper hairspray). And I actually don't know why half my body is numb. It happened for a few days in the spring, stopped, and then started again the other month. I went to a neurologist and she couldn't figure it out, and I've had an MRI and ultrasounds to try to find out what's going on, but basically all I got was a huge *SHRUG* so I still just have a mysteriously half numb body. It's literally right down the middle of my body, so it seems like it should be a brain thing... The weirdest thing to me is not feeling cool minty fresh on the right side of my tongue after brushing my teeth.

Hi, new here >_>.
After running around this fandom for last few months I finely get myself to register here.
My journey with NO.6 start few months ago when one of publisher of mangas on our country said that they will publish No.6. I liked drawing style of characters so I thought I will check it out. After reading manga, watching anime and checking novel I fell in love with that story and Shion and Nezumi.
I wasn't very much into shounen ai in last years, I still don't like then people push some characters together from manga/anime when they straight, but Nezumi and Shion really stole my heart and ending of story had leave me devastated. I can't count how many times I thought "Nezumi, you idiot, you both love! Be together damn it T_T"
After it I dig thought 90% of internet fanfiction from NO.6. I never was in fandom when I liked so much people fanfiction from it. There are so much amazing writers and drawers for this story that is amazing.
I hope I will be welcome here ^^'. Please take care of me.

Hello kare_reiko! :D
WELCOME! *throws popcorn and confetti*

Ah, may I ask where you come from? ^^ I'd like to know where they want to publish the series apart from USA, France, Poland and Germany... o.o
Title: Re: Welcome new members!!
Post by: kare_reiko on February 09, 2015, 05:23:51 pm
I'm from Poland, right now I'm waiting for second volume, they had problems with prints, but I shoud get it into my hands in tomorrow or later this week.
Nice thing is that some volumes that include extra chapters will be sell in two versions. I have pre payed for special vers (have different covers too), to shops will have normal vers. I still wonder if I'm crazy enough to buy both versions XD. Well I have time until 3rd volume anyway XD.
Title: Re: Welcome new members!!
Post by: Ahiku on February 10, 2015, 07:41:17 am
Oh, cool! :D I'm from Germany, so we're neighbors.
Ah, the second volume was published last year, but I remember that I had trouble finding it...
Lawlya also mentioned she had to visit several bookshops, if I remember it correctly.
The next one should be published soon. Yay!

Ah, I've reread the second volume today... Shion had white lashes in chapter 8 and 9, but then Kino-sensei gave him black ones. o.o But well, can't wait until we reach volume 5-6, the art style gets better and better then!

Hi, also new here!
After lurking the forum for about a week, I **** yesterday and made an account. Can't say I regret it! :)
Um, I've been in the No.6 fandom for about a month after spending a week drowning in the anime/light novel, and attempting to translate the last 13 chapters of the manga myself (needless to say, I failed terribly, but it was kinda funny...).
Random stuff about me (hopefully I'm not writing too much?)
-I'm a total shounen-ai fan; that's actually how I got into the fandom, a friend told me it was sci-fi and gay.
-I fluctuate between being a lurker and an insane rambler, so I'm trying to curb both of those tendencies.
-As a mediocre artist, I often draw the randomest things, and nothing ever comes out good, meh.
-NEZUSHI IS LIFE
-I have been called the NezuShi lovechild on two separate occasions by two different people.
(I'm nerdwenlawlight on tumblr, if anyone cares to chat)

Looking forward to joining this community!

Title: Re: Welcome new members!!
Post by: listenforthelove on April 07, 2015, 05:03:15 am
@nezushisushi: first off all can I just say your username is AMAZING omigosh.
Secondly, glad that you **** and joined the forum! I hope you'll enjoy your stay here~ and oh wow, you tried translating the manga yourself? That's some dedication, those 13 chapters are about 2-3 volumes, whoa.
And feel free to both lurk and ramble here! Both are welcome, though of course it's easier to talk back to you if you ramble ;)
Title: Re: Welcome new members!!
Post by: nezushisushi on April 07, 2015, 08:19:28 am

@listenforthelove: Ahaha, thanks! Though I do have to credit nezushi-headcanons for the idea. X)
It was uh, less of actual translating and more of stumbling through hiragana and reading kanji in chinese instead...
Ok, got it! ^-^ *attempts to be less lurkerish*
Title: Re: Welcome new members!!
Post by: Meopat on April 07, 2015, 08:58:33 am
WELCOME :D

oh man, I totally misread your username as nezushishi at first, but now upon closer reading, I found myself imagining Nezumi wrapped around Shion like a sushi AND I CAN'T GET IT OUT OF MY HEAD. I hope this doesn't give me any weird dreams. not that I would mind tho

I hope you'll share some drawings too if you're comfortable! I look forward to seeing them! :d
Title: Re: Welcome new members!!
Post by: Ahiku on April 07, 2015, 09:59:16 am
Welcome, Nezushisushi! :D Being less lurkerish sounds good! Please enjoy yourself.

@Meo
Ah, and I imagine them both in a big sushi roll. X'D Tightly pressed against each other. But well, Nezumi wrapped around Shion sounds pretty charming as well. :D

Title: Re: Welcome new members!!
Post by: nezushisushi on April 07, 2015, 06:31:31 pm
I suppose one could interpret the nezushi sushi as having occurred in canon already, considering Nezumi has wrapped his cloak around himself and Shion and rolled around in it. (the cloak is black like seaweed)
I'm referring to the scene where Nezumi rescues Shion from the car.

Post by: Kai on June 28, 2015, 02:11:07 pm
Maybe I should say hello here as well. ^^

I'm Kai (what a surprise) and I'm from Switzerland and very pleased to read that there are a few other sharing my timezone! I'm pretty new to the fandom, but since I rarely get into something so quickly, I am also pretty certain I will stick around for a long, long time.
And I never know how to introduce myself, ah... I think this is the first time I properly like a story with shounen-ai/yaoi. I often steer away from these two terms since most of the encounters I had with them weren't quite that enjoyable. Still, Shion and Nezumi had me from the beginning.

I'm not much of an artist, as I saw many of you guys are. But there might be a cosplay coming from my side at some point...
Title: Re: Welcome new members!!
Post by: Ahiku on June 28, 2015, 02:30:54 pm
Okay, here again, Kai. :3 Willkommen. Ich hoffe, du wirst viel Spaß hier haben. Ah, where did you find the forum? On Tumblr? Or somewhere else?

It's always nice to meet new people who also want to stick around in our little forum.
Unfortunately, it's a bit quiet here at the moment. o.o

Ah, No.6 is no yaoi at all, sometimes it's not even labeled as shounen-ai, since their relationship is quite natural and also not the main point of the story. :3 It's more like a nice side effect.

I look forward to seeing your No. 6 cosplay in the future. ^^



Title: Re: Welcome new members!!
Post by: Kai on June 28, 2015, 03:11:51 pm
Werd ich ganz bestimmt. ^^ I found it on tumblr, on the RC blog when I was looking for blogs I can follow. And well, why not, it's been a while since I've been in a forum.

Well, I'll be trying to add to the activity a little.

I don't particularily label stuff anyways. And I completely agree with you that this is not the typical yaoi or shounen-ai (I still associate that with what made me feel awkward) and that 'on the side' happening of feelings is much more natural indeed.

I hope it will turn out well. I'm not quite sure yet but I have my eye on Nezumi. Shion is too cute and I don't think I can be that innocent looking, I'm also far too pale for Inukashi and not so willing to smear paint all over me. But maybe Karan could be worth a try.

Oh and about the ordering you mentioned in the 'when and how...' topic. I would but Amazon has such high shipping costs into Switzerland. I'll just make time to hop across the border some time in the future and raid some bookstore. (Like I always do, I know where where the closest ones are. *hehe*)

Post by: Weisel on June 28, 2015, 03:31:29 pm
Hello and welcome! We've got a cosplay thread around here that can be dusted off and revived. I'm no pro, but if you have any cosplay questions, I'll do my best to help! (I've got cosplays for Nezumi, Shion, Eve, Inukashi, working on Safu... I'm in too deep!)

Hello and welcome to the forums Kai! I'm fairly new to the forums myself, I've been off and on for the past 6 months or so. I really look forward to seeing your cosplay and the rest of your thoughts on this beloved series!

Hi all :)

I'm new here. My name is Caroline, and I'm sooo new to this fandom that it's crazy how obsessed I am already. I watched the anime all in one sitting a little over three weeks ago, and have been working my way through the manga slowly (I have one volume left). Haven't started on the novels yet, but I'm sure I'll love them even more.

Anyway, I'm a bit shy (the only fandom I really interact with is on Tumblr, so I'm not sure how different a message board is), but I LOVE this series to death and I just NEED to talk to people about it, LOL!
Title: Re: Welcome new members!!
Post by: Meopat on July 06, 2015, 08:18:36 am
HELLO CAROLINE. :D

I'm Meo!! ^_^ AND WELCOME. *throws confetti* <3
YES, DISCUSS WITH US ALL YOUR FEELS. and omg, you're almost on the last volume of the manga. *clutches heart* be strong!!
...Evidently, there's been a lot of discussions on the forums already - but if you find any that interests you, don't hesitate to dig it up and restart the discussion :3 !!
Title: Re: Welcome new members!!
Post by: Ahiku on July 06, 2015, 08:25:06 am
Hello Caroline :3
Welcome!^^

New No. 6 fans are always welcome! :D (And old fans as well, of course. ^^°)
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask us.

Post by: listenforthelove on July 06, 2015, 08:31:02 am
Hi there Caroline! It's so nice to meet you and great that you discovered No. 6! I hope you're enjoying the manga so far, as you have probably noticed one volume from the end it's slightly different from the anime sometimes (as are the novels). I always feel slightly sadistic for telling people to enjoy No. 6, haha.

Feel free to poke around in the threads, revive some old ones or start something new, and I hope you'll enjoy your stay here!!

Hey all!
Even it doesn't seem like this forum is super-active lately I thought I'll sign up!
Some time ago I found the NO.6 manga in my hands and started reading it. Then at least with Volume 4 I was completly in love with the manga, especially because of the great drawings and the imo most wonderful ship ever, Nezushi.
Even it has become my very favourite manga, I never had a look at the fandom so far. But I want to change that and Tumblr seems like the right place, there I also found this Forum!
Hope it's alright when I ask, are there things (like regulary events) I should know of?

Looking forward to talk to y'all!

Wooloo

P.s.Volume 8 and 9 aren't released in Germany so far, therefore I am trying to still avoid spoilers. Just sayin ^-^
Title: Re: Welcome new members!!
Post by: listenforthelove on November 24, 2015, 02:21:23 pm
Hi there, woolookologie/Wooloo!
So great to see you here~ it's indeed been a little silent in the forum lately, but we hope you'll find some topics to your liking and that you will enjoy your stay here!

Ah, though you might want to be on your guard a little if you haven't finished the story in any of the media (manga/anime/novels), there will likely be spoilers in quite some topics (and on tumblr, for that matter) ^^; Hopefully the topic titles will tip you off, and if you're unsure, you can always ask a fellow member if a topic is safe for you to enter! Enjoy the rest of the journey of No. 6~

And almost forgot to mention, but there's a monthly No. 6 Day on the 6th of the month on tumblr! Just tag as #no. 6 day/#no.6 day if you want to participate~ And there are other events going on too, plenty of them hosted by the Restructural Committee blog (http://restructuralcommittee.tumblr.com/) so keep an eye on that! (Though maybe not too closely due to spoilers...)
Title: Re: Welcome new members!!
Post by: Weisel on November 24, 2015, 03:36:59 pm
Yeah! Welcome, welcome. Wooloo! I'll also probably do livestreams of the anime next year, which will be posted on the Restructural Committee blog as well. I think that would be an awesome place to meet even more people since the forum is a bit quiet.
Title: Re: Welcome new members!!
Post by: Ahiku on November 25, 2015, 07:08:35 am
Hallöle Wooloo :D
Grüß dich!

Yeah, we have No. 6 day...and a secret Santa event, but unfortunately it's too late so you can't participate anymore. >,<

It's pretty hard to avoid spoilers. Have you ever thought about reading the novels online? :3
Title: Re: Welcome new members!!
Post by: woolookologie on November 26, 2015, 10:08:09 am
Hey all,
thanks for the warm welcome!

@listenforthelove A NO.6 day sounds great! My art is horrible tho, I tried drawing Shion once but didn't finish it because the originals are just tooo great and my stuff just looked awful. xD All I can do is music I guess... I'm not sure how to make a NO.6 themed song without a lyrics tho, haha... Still, can't wait to see all the surely great stuff!

@Weisel A stream sounds great, looking forward to it! (I don't like the anime thaat much compared to the manga, but still, it's NO.6 and that's instantly something good ^-^)

@Ahiku Tach :D Indeed, I thought about doing that. On the other hand part 8 is fortunately already going to be released very soon, so I think I'll just buy that one. Theres nothing quite like laying in the bed on a sunday morning and reading NO.6, whats sadly not possible with a digital copy since I don't own a laptop or ebookreader or something.  :/ I'm still considering it for the part, though!

Until soon, Wooloo/Luis :)
Title: Re: Welcome new members!!
Post by: Ghosty on November 27, 2015, 05:03:34 pm
@wooloo everyone else has pretty much already explained what we do here, but I figured I might as well say hello anyway. Welcome to our small but mighty fandom!
