Re: Timeline in No. 6 - help?

Normally, Shion's birthday should be in summer. XD
But well, when spring really starts in January, September is no late summer. But well it's always green there. o.o

Ah, I wonder... if they really have snow in the West Block. I mean there's snow in the anime ending. When they bury Inukashi's uncle, they say that the ground is frozen. But we don't have snow in anime and manga, even though it's winter.

Hmm...maybe No. 6 is in the subtropics... (Ok, I guess it's more like some kind of border between subtropics and temperate zone.)
Quote
Eight months of the year within the subtropics have an average temperature at or above 10 C (50.0 F), with their coldest month averaging between 2 and 13 C (35.6 and 55.4 F).
Or it's a fluent passage between subtropics and temperate zone.
No. 6 regulates the temperatures, so it's not too hot... The Mao people lived there and I guess it's really hard to survive in a forest when the winters are long and really cold.

Ah, and Shion says:

September 7, 2013 was my twelfth birthday. On this day, a tropical low pressure-system, or hurricane, that had developed a week ago off the southwestern area of the North Pacific Ocean, made its way north, gathering power, until it hit us directly in the city of No. 6.
(Shouldn't it be a Taifun? XD Wikipedia says:
Quote
A typhoon is a mature tropical cyclone that develops in the western part of the North Pacific Ocean between 180 and 100E. This region is referred to as the Northwestern Pacific Basin,[1] and is the most active tropical cyclone basin on Earth, accounting for almost one-third of the world's annual tropical cyclones.

But well, whatever... it's a tropical storm, Shion also mentioned it.)

Then, we could also consider Karan's garden...
Quote
My mother preferred small trees over flowers, and through her enthusiastic planting of almond, camellia and maple trees all over the place, our yard had grown into a small grove.

Almond
Quote
There are approximately 128 species, most of which are native to Asia,[4] with a number also appearing in Europe, northern Africa, and North America.
-> moderate climate is ok... but normally they like warmth...
Camellia
They are endemic to Eastern Asia...So the origin is in warm countries... But there are also types you can plant in a moderate climate... But I think they also prefer warmth.
Maple Tree

The same thing... o.o

So when you consider a tropical storm and plants who rather like it warm than too cold, even if a little bit of cold is okay. (Unless it's not freezing for a very long time...)

In the centre of the city there was an enormous forest park that took up more than a sixth of the city's total area. In it, one could experience the seasonal changes and interact with the hundreds of species of small animals and insects that inhabited it.

Maybe it's not even thaaaat cold in West Block. I think it's colder than in No. 6, definitely and Shion isn't used to it. But even if you don't have freezing temperatures, I think people can freeze to death when they don't have a place to go and when they are also starving.

So that's specifically the West Block... ****, I was hoping Nezumi had indeed spent quite a while with Shion and Karan. I had the feeling it was about a week, but I checked beyond again and there's no mention of how long he stayed. Hmm. Then I'm going with your theory of Nezumi staying for quite a while, that sounds much nicer.

Ah, I also thought it wasn't that long. o.o But well...maybe it was one month. He had serious injuries after all and I think Karan has enough maternal feelings to tell him: "No, sunshine, you will stay here until you're completey ok! And don't tell me you're okay, I have 16 years of experience being a mother! *grabs his shoulder*" Nezumi: AHHH Q_Q Okay, Mom...Ma'am!
