@Ahiku: ah... I think I took that 'those outside' very literally, then. Hm.
At least the Forest People seem to have lived in only one part of the forest by that time, though? Maybe they used to live in all of the forest before No. 6 drove them out to a certain corner, where they were eventually wiped out?
I guess it'd make sense if the Forest Park was built around already existing nature indeed, trees don't just pop up from nowhere. Didn't think of that, oops.

Ah, huh, no ocean? o-o But... not close to an ocean should rule out typhoons, shouldn't it? I mean, it's probably not an ocean-side city then, but it has to be sort of close in order for a typhoon to strike... I didn't get the impression it was an exaggerated autumn storm, but an actual typhoon, so, huh?  ???
DANG IT. XD;

I lived in central Pennsylvania (a state without any coasts) for a while and one year we actually had a hurricane come close to us from the southern United States... So I think it doesn't have to be too terribly close to the ocean to get weather similar to that.

Wow this is really complicated... but interesting :D I think I'll use China for my fic... but if anyone finds anything else it's still really interesting to hear :)

Ah, good luck with the fic, @AoYokai! Will you share once you're done? I'm very curious now, haha!

@Weisel: wow, really? O_o that is pretty scary. Huh, no idea hurricanes could go that far inland (is that a word?)...
Guess it doesn't have to be super close to the coast indeed. Maybe just a figure of speech to clarify it's not like the beach is 5 minutes away or something?

*-* Can't wait to read it then, Aoyokai.
It's always fun to do research work. :3 And it's nice that you asked here to start a conversation and discussion about it.

@listenforthelove

Ah, you have posted this map where you can see typhoons..
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Typhoon#mediaviewer/File:Pacific_typhoon_tracks_1980-2005.jpg
I think it reaches the Maolan region, too. Barely. But that would also fit... Shion thought it was a present and was really exited. I guess storms like that are pretty rare, then.
(Maybe they even regulated little storms, but a real typhoon is probably too much. ^^)

@AoYokai: ahh, more reasons to look forward to Holy Celebration Week~ can't wait to read!

@Ahiku: hmm, yeah that's true, Shion was really excited so I guess it's not a regular occurrence indeed... Kind of depends on how much No. 6 can control the climate as well, but yeah, the Maolan region sort of fits in that map, so it's very much possible indeed! (and hey, if the climate changes, there might be more storms. Aren't there more and more storms in 10 or 20 year intervals anyway? Or did I remember that wrong?)

I did not research really... but my imagination just took me to China, the region closer to Korea, it would roughly fit the climate (always depending on how much the climate would change after warfare) though I think it would be likely for that area...
A rough (large) estimate would be somewhere around the provinces Jilin, Liaoning or Shandong.

I can't say exactly why, but for some reason I don't think it would be the Hebei or Beijing region and certainly not Shanghai. Maybe it just wouldn't feel right to be that close to any major international population centers. And Hebei struck me as very barren, too. (Though I can't judge well... I've been on the train for around 16 hours by then and I was traveling hard-class (hard seats only = very tiring, especially when the train is even stuffed enough to have people lounging in the isle and standing around.).)

To me it was always obvious that No.6 clearly had a lot of influences from Japan, yet it was definitely diverse. Rikiga's character struck me as definitely having caucasian influences as did some things withing No. 6. Now with places the drawings/designs certainly had influence. Though while reading I did recognise a somewhat Japanese/Asian culture, yet, I had the feeling Asano did include things that would be a bit untypical for Japan and more typical for more Western customs... At least more than today's Japanese culture has.

Then the name for the "Mao" forest/people... That name just strikes me as something more Chinese sounding (yes, I'm totally taken in by cliché here...) and they were considered 'ancient' and well, it would fit for the mixture of cultures living in No. 6 name them something that sounds cliché for the land that has once been there (for a very, very long time, China has a long history after all).

I also wondered how the rest of the world has changed/shifted... it has been said before, things were flooded and I guess weapons could have changed stripes of land into very different things... so the map could look a bit different than we know it.

But well, no serious research here, it's mainly based on a little bit of experience and a (not really) educated guess.
