Written by the lovely Atsuko Asano, this series also started as light novels. This series has a lot of really great things about it, but what drew me in the most was the setting. No. 6 itself is a lovely paradise that slowly reveals itself to be dystopian at best. Outside the walls is a burgeoning, poor society teeming with lively characters. The main characters also have a very convincing romance, but that’s for the romance authors among us!
Why I recommend it for Writers: A terrifying dystopian society done right, character growth that makes sense, a romance that is tittilating, and a very, very high stakes plot make for a lovely read/watch/experience.
Warnings: Homoromantic relationships, death.
