Friendship: a very important aspect of every person's life. Without friends, we would have rotted, we wouldn't have been able to exist. And of course, we would not have been able to make any sacrifices, or bring ourselves to have fun and be satisfied. Is it important to have friends? Rainbow: Nisha Rokubou no Shichinin answers this question in a rather different way than we would imagine.

Both use a Prison setting. Rainbow is based in a realistic setting, set in the 1950s and following the lives of young criminals. Deadman Wonderland is more science-fiction, set in the future and a prison that serves as an amusement park. Both series have a dark atmosphere that stems from their location.
"Friendship" and brotherly bonds between the characters is a very strong theme in the beginning of both series....
