The rating in MAL irks me really. This is by far the best start of all the anime that has been aired in Spring 2010.

This could be the Best show of 2010, and yet you'll see all hypes around malicious moe and iffy ecchi anime shows. :/

Also, there you go [Frostii] and [Saizen] are doing it as [FroZen], and I have been in their channels and they said its the best thing they are subbing in a while.

The rating is because of the low number of votes. Give it acouple of days and it will be much higher.

I had a feeling this would be one of the shows to look out for this season. The author's ability to blend hope and despair right at the start is making this look very promising.

MAL ratings are shit, don't worry about them.

Anyways, this might the show of the season.

The rating is low because Xinil only counts user scores after they've seen a quarter of the series. Since it's set to ?? number of episodes the score will remain low for a while.

There's a lot of great shows that just came out and that are coming out. I can't say where this or the rest stand but it's definitely great. Loving the OP.

Edit: I just noticed that Tadayoshi has the same voice actor for Simon in Durarara.

Well i think they all write on the tree and it happen after they released.

And yeah it was very good.
Girl at the beginning was so evil.
I am waiting for sensitive flashbacks in next episodes.

Wow, that was intense o.o They're not going to spare us the details...which is good.
I'm already pretty sure that Sakuragi's gonna die by the end of the series though xD

This is the only show I'll look forward to every week this season. Expecting epic.

The OP fits perfectly and for once we have proper english coming from a Japanese band. (leadsinger doesn't seem to be Japanese, heh) A real mood-setter :)

I'm glad MADHOUSE is doing this show, because any other studio would have failed.

"SUNLIGHT WAS THE ONLY THING THAT FELT RIGHT!" Heh heh. nice.

*The first 5 seconds"
"We believe the explicit scenes of this animated work are rather important in bringing out the atmosphere of this time period-Rainbow Production Staff."

Hell....freaking...yes....

More importantly, State Alchemist Romi Park is in this! This just instantly went from great to awesome.

Madhouse is the perfect studio for this considering their ability to make more mature serious designs.

Really good episode and it made a good job showing the desperation and the awfulness of the situation.
I guess this is the way is gonna continue since it's their life in prison the show is revolving around.
This kind of productions are a bittersweet experience. On one hand it's a very mature realistic production with real painful drama on the other hand the desperation and reality of it are quite unpleasant and it certainly isn't fit for relaxing, fun, time.

Anyhow if it develops well it could be an epic story. Stories about imprisonment really are full of pain and battle for hope.

Madhouse and their smoothly drawn, well-muscled, square-jawed young men. Atmosphere is laid on too thick. Making it more documentary-esque would've swayed me-let fact speak for itself. The circumstances of these guys are tragic enough; seems like there aren't any self-defense laws or considerate provisions for minors/the poor. And that doctor is probably horny rather than genuinely kind.
Doesn't exactly help that the whole episode could've been misinterpreted as a part-educational, feature-length smoking ad, but that's probably just me being hyper-sensitive. At least the animation is on par with, if a bit over-similar to, Ippo.
Unless they take away some of the dramatics, I'm out. Preview does not give me hope.

It was good.
I can already predict the ending though, they all become really good friends and remember the boss that brought them together, because he's now dead. This is like animated Prison Break. I'm not too keen on the whole nice doctor kind of guy, he's probably the most corrupt out of all of them but, who knows.

Thanks Madhouse for bringing us a show that isn't comedy, or slice'of'life or moe.

This first episode is really good and the show looks promising. OP and ED are also nice, though nothing special, compared to other shows that only use idol j-pop these are refreshing.
