久々の蟹DINNER! and [Anime] NO.6

Thanks again to everyone who commented on my birthday post. I had a great birthday and am very hopeful that this year will be even more wonderful than the last.

A few days ago I went to the marina in DC.  My family and I bought some live crabs for dinner.  I took a picture of them while they were still alive in the pot below.  Watching their eyes look up at me as my sister poured the beer in to get them drunk so as to ease the pain is a little sad but so goes the food chain I guess. By the way, they were very delicious.

Lately, I've been watching a new anime called No.6. It's a futuristic world type of anime. Has anyone else been watching it? I never read the original so I was really shocked when I watched the progression of the storyline.  The two main male leads are Shion and Nezumi/Eve.  I was expecting this to be a regular shounen story. And so at first I thought okay these guys are just really close friends who don't mind a little hand holding and snuggling in bed between friends.  But episode after episode this anime has been moving towards the borderline of BL.  In fact, I'm so confused now with the most current episode...is this BL already or just fanservice? :p What the heck is going on with these two?  Well, if you've watched the anime I'm sure you'll understand my confusion. And if you've read the light novel/manga, I suppose you already know what's up unless the anime has gone in a completely different direction. All I know is that it runs in Aria which is a shoujo manga magazine so I guess hence the hints of BL. 
Anyhow, my mom walked in on me watching episode 5 and I was hesitating on whether to let her watch or not because I wasn't sure how far those two were gonna go with each other.  She walked in on the part where Nezumi dressed as Eve was in bed and Shion was all over him and then they later proceeded to dance.  And my mom was like is that a girl? But she sounds like a boy? And why are two boys dancing together like that?  Sad thing was, I couldn't really explain because I'm still o__O over their behavior.  It kinda makes me laugh with what should be a serious scene between two people who seem to share a strong affection for each other. My favorite part was when Shion suddenly touched Nezumi's neck!!^^ It was very unexpected!
Despite my confusion, I do like No.6.  There's still a lot of mysteries to be explained and I'm hoping this story has a happy ending for Shion or at least a satisfying ending for the viewers.

I have not heard of this anime but I have the first episode buffering as I type ^_^. The info you gave of the show intrigues me greatly and I can't wait to get started. I also know how you feel about seeing the animals alive before you eat them. I always feel bad walking by the lobster tank at Red Lobster...

Really? Let me know your impression after you've watched.
I'd love to hear others thoughts on the characters or storyline.XD

>I always feel bad walking by the lobster tank at Red Lobster...

Yeah, the poor lobsters. But they're so yummy!><
I love the biscuits at Red Lobster. I always eat so many that I'm full before my meal even arrives.:p

I watched all the episodes last night. Granted, there are only 5 unfortunately (I want to see more darn it...) but I absolutely love it. The plot is interesting since I like those type of stories where society is in a position where it is struggling to survive after the majority of it is now gone. But I have to admit that a major part of my interest is focused on how the two will continue to be affectionate with one another :p. It's adorable and really has that BL feel because it has the character that is obviously behaving differently because the other one is there and its even a change that is perceived to be detrimental to themselves. I mean, how is that not love *lol*? And although the two boys are the typical foils for one another, I like how Rat isn't the broody silent type and plays/jokes around (although that might be because of the change I was talking about earlier :p ). I guess we'll have to see since Safu will most likely be coming in in the next episode. :/

I didn't read your spoiler bit till now since I was planning on watching it all immediately but I was able to already pretty much guess at what part you were talking about :p. While watching it even I was like, "oh yeah, there is really no way to explain this..." It's like, at the end of each episode Rat is realizing he is behaving differently and it seems to worry him but come next episode, he continues doing so anyway :D. I freakin' love these kids.

The biscuits are my downfall. And since I don't live near a Red Lobster, whenever we do manage to eat there, we take extra biscuits home with us. But they're just not the same :/.

-wow this comment got lengthy, sorry about that :p-

No apologies necessary. I enjoyed reading your whole comment. So glad you like No.6 as much as I do!XD I have a feeling their relationship may end on a bittersweet note or maybe a just plain bitter one. ;__; Hopefully, I'm wrong.

Ahaha yes... the BL adventures of BL fans and their moms. My mom once walked into my room while I was on the computer. I didn't realize until much later I had a BL book on my bed, front cover facing up XDD And it was a very, verrry BL cover XDD (How BL? THIS BL XD)

Ohh.. I downloaded the first 4 eps of No.6 because the summary from the Summer 2011 lineup really intrigued me. Your post is definitely a very good motivation to start watching it ♥

Ooh yeah that cover would be hard to explain. If my mom saw me with that book, I'd have to say they're just really really close friends.:p

Yay. I hope you enjoy No.6 as much as I have.^O^
