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)
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!
