Manga Review: No. 6, Vol.1

Damian Trypp  here again with my first manga review. Been a little bit since the book review I did. Okay so this little title I grabbed during a sale going on and the back synopsis got my attention. I have gotten a hold of a few titles I have yet to read and get reviews on though I think a game or movie review might be in order next. With the passing of our beloved Stan Lee my love for reading comics and watching everything dealing with all of our favorite heroes has only strengthened. I hope to pass on the love for books and everything nerd to others with the vigor I’ve come to expect of so many others. Well without further ado my review of No. 6, Volume 1.

No. 6 Volume 1 cover



For Shion, an elite student in the technologically sophisticated city No. 6, life is carefully choreographed. School, study, and the occasional visit with his friend and classmate Safu. One fateful day, however, he takes a misstep, sheltering an injured boy his age from a typhoon. Known only as Rat, this boy is a VC – a fugitive living outside the computerized tapestry of city control – and helping him will throw Shion’s life into chaos and start him down a path to discovering the appalling secrets behind the superficial perfection of No. 6.


Rating: 5 stars

Okay so this one I was actually a little iffy about when I grabbed it from the shelf on my trip to a somewhat local Barnes and Noble. I read the back cover and decided to take a chance and guys I did not regret it. In a short span I got a good take on the type of person the main character Shion is as well as how mysterious and dark the city he lives in really is. Just for helping a single person, his life and the life of his mother were put backwards by the very city he had grown up loving. The fact that some of the aspects of this city could very well be a future that we end up being in one day was slightly unnerving. However as I continued reading I found myself wanting more and more until I reached that very sad moment when I realized there was no more. The manga was over and I once again found one that I would definitely like to continue to read and hopefully continue to enjoy.
