What exactly is friendship? Are your friends more important to you than your family? What are you willing to go through for a friend? Rainbow: Nisha Rokubou no Shichinin (for the rest of the review the anime will be referred to simply as Rainbow) focuses on friendship, as well as several other themes based around friendship, such as humanity, morality, violence, love, family etc. This is my review:

Rainbow : Nisha Rokubou no Shichinin - after watching episodes of this anime, one word kept coming to my mind. "Beautiful". This anime shows how beautiful friendship can be. Acts of selflessness, sacrificing oneself to help another, returning to that one special place - It's all present in Rainbow. It's a good mix of emotion, struggle and drama.

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.
Same historical background and similar characters.
