What I thought would be one of my favorites this season instead turned out to be a disappointment.
The best thing No.6 had going for it was the futuristic city itself, which was not adequately explored. Multiple scenes focused on the honeycomb structure located in the center of the city making an eerie sound, but nothing was explained about it. There was also the scene where it showed the huge pile of dead people in the correctional facility. What was the point of even doing that since they apparently had no qualms about killing them in the open anyways? Why go through the trouble of bringing them to the facility if they’re just going to leave them to die in a room? I’m assuming they were selecting subjects for their experiment and everyone else was useless to them, but I don’t think it was specifically explained in regard to the town raids.
Furthermore, the story eventually led to an ending involving the supernatural that was quite absurd. I would have found it far more interesting if the series had stuck to using future technology instead of focusing on some bee god that has the power to create tornadoes and resurrect people. Then there are the characters themselves. I thought Safu was the best character, but she was unfortunately taken out of the picture. That left a Shion x Nezumi pairing, which I did not expect when first starting the show…
