So I've still been stalking Ishino's(chief animation director) twitter, and honestly this guy is too amusing.

Ishino: "So yeah, I went to Lost Heaven (that No.6-only event) and bought 10 books lol"
fans: "EH, EEEEHHHH?!"
Ishino: "Well, I didn't have the courage to buy any R18 ones ww"
fan1: "I thought it was strange to see a guy there... so that was him... /sob"
fan2: "I-Ishino-san bought my book... oh god can't breathe."
Ishino: "Well, the R18 books..." (<-WHY DO YOU KEEP BRINGING THIS UP)
fans: "/dying"

Can't stop laughing oh god. Both Ishino himself and the fan reactions... I wish some of them showed a bit more courtesy and stopped spazzing out on him, but the spazzing was hilarious to read and he was the one who kept bringing up R18 so bluntly anyway.
And then he said he might tag along with a friend to Comic City Spark and maybe, just maaaaaaybe, draw something to sell himself. .......It's indeed not unheard of for animators to release doujinshi of their own series, but I wasn't expecting it for No.6 at all. I can tell that he's a fan pfft. If they ever make more No.6 I hope they keep this guy in the staff.

And saying "make more No.6" is an almost-but-not-quite baseless comment. Ishino mentioned in his twitter a while ago that "the continuation of No.6 depends on sales" and "that's probably not a lie." Now, I don't want to spread any fake rumors - there's no reason to "continue" the story of No.6 as a whole new series and none of us would want that anyway. At most it probably just means an epilogue in the last BD or something, which would still be great if they did that. First week BD/DVD sales were 4,924, which is actually a lot more than I expected. I wouldn't have bet on the series breaking 5k but it actually did. Now I'm just hoping it'll make the rankings next week so we can have the "official" breaking 5k numbers. Although I expect numbers to dip quite a bit next month since this first BD was both cheaper than the rest and had those event applications. But anyway - that comment was just in response to a fan tweet and more than anything it was likely just a generic industry BS response, so I'm not getting my hopes up. And besides, the only two shows Bones has done a sequel/remake for are FMA and DTB and obviously No.6 isn't anywhere near that level. On the 0.001% chance of a remake, I'd prefer they change all the main staff including the director and writer and with the exception of Ishino.

Also a few people asked me about the Dystopia Radios a while back, whether they said any interesting or important information in there. I finally got around to listening to all of them, and as for any important information regarding the production or release of No.6 - there was absolutely nothing lol. It was certainly amusing, Kaaji(how should I spell かーじー? Kaajii? KAAAji?) is a Do-S troll and Yassan is constantly hyped up on caffeine and they say some hilarious things. But anything important? Nooope. Just the seiyuu being silly. If you want to listen I recommend listening on NND since the comments ~enhance the experience~ and if you don't know Japanese, giant trains of wwwwwwwww mean "that was funny, you're suppose to laugh here" so you can laugh and pretend you understood what they said!

Lollll Ishino XD

Epilogue yes but remakes maybe another 5 years down the road or something lol but blatantly impossible as the episode count is just 13 and the novels ain't very long in plotline wise.

Dystopia Radios was hilarious but I couldn't bring myself trying to concentrate to listen to all of them. ><
Do-S troll <==== LOL YES

Meh, I don't want to wait years for a remake. A series of OVAs sounds best to me, but this is all just dreaming anyway.

Pffft I want to hit Kaji sometimes for the stuff he says, but it's so entertaining.

Didn't know he was a strong supporter of their relationship, that's pretty hilarious. Ishino is the man and if he does a doujinshi I will lose my shit. You don't know how badly I want this series re-made, I would gladly empty my wallet if it meant that or more. Keep up the info, hiriajuu.

I'm surprised he would even go to an event, I would never muster up the courage if I were him ahah. He said if he does draw something, it'd likely be an artbook rather than a comic, but chances are he won't have time to draw anything... but we'll see~

... I'm imagining how much money he would make off of a doujinshi. And I say, if he doesn't do it, he must already make enough income to spare. XD I'm happy he supports the fans and also loves the boys as much as we do, even if he says he didn't foray into the R18 realm.

As for the series getting a remake, I wouldn't mind seeing the series released as OVAs. While a new series altogether would be preferable, without a good script, it's not going to make a difference. They need to pick someone that's especially good at the LN adaptations, or at least someone that has got experience. Really, I don't think there's any way to convey the feelings of the novels without some inner monologue.

Thank you for this update! XD Shame I couldn't find a pickup service for this event, but Spark is coming up.

From what I've seen chief animation directors get paid a lot, even more than the directors themselves sometimes. I'll gladly give my money to this guy ahah. Though he says he most likely won't have time to draw anything in the end... still hoping though.

OVAs would be great, best format for an adaptation IMO. But right now it's all just wishful thinking.

Welcome! Hope you find a good pickup for Spark~

*le dies*
Okay I can't stop laughing. Ishino-san, oh you~
I need an OVAs please. With epilogue and maybe with more scenes from their life together in West Block.
Can I have link to his twitter? :)
Thank you so much for posting this.
"Well, the R18 books..." This made my day xD.

OVAs really would be the best format for adapting the books... best not to get too much into wishful thinking now though. ;;
Twitter is here~

Sorry, I clicked the link to his twitter but it says the page doesn't exist.. >.
