This is my opinion but I think this anime is great and I want more people to love it too. I know, that this might not be the type of anime you might watch as most people watching this dropped because they think this anime is full of bad jokes, zero plot and unsatisfying comedy. But as someone who reads the manga, I know that Nanbaka is not what it seems to be. Sure, there is definitely comedy, but if you think that's all there is to it, well you're wrong, it'll have an unexpected turn of events that may or may not be your cup of tea but I am hoping that people would at least give it a try, things will turn out serious later on.(so long as they do follow the manga) I like the characters as well and it was enjoyable to watch them interact with each other. The animation wasn't all that amazing but it is good, albeit a bit too bright and colourful and sparkly. As for music and soundtrack, the OP was awesome imo and the ED is cute. read more
Okay. So I have only watched the first 4 episodes of this....and all I can say is.
It is so dumb!
BUT that is what makes it entertaining to watch. All of the characters are silly and over the top, but that isn't a bad thing because for what the show is, it works.
Basically this is a story that's like Deadman Wonderland had a really sparkly flamboyant baby with K. The setting is a "Special maximum security prison" and EVERYTHING is colorful and EVERYONE sparkles. It's all pretty amusing.
The music is super forgettable, which for me, is a huge turn off for this show. I fing myself constantly skipping the ending theme because it is just plain boring.
All in all. I will probably keep watching, but who knows what this show will do in the future?
When I first saw this anime I was like this is just comedy and with random story every episodes and I only started watching this anime because I was totally bored. After some episode I decided to read the manga and that's where my view of this anime changed. There is more about this anime than just the inmates trying to escape in the prison.
I read and listened to their convo eagerly and there is something that they are trying to do that gets you more excited to know what happens in the next chapter or episode.. Like how Hajime wants to know about Jyugo and who he really is..and also Jyugo is looking for someone with a scar in the neck.. and by the way the fight is EPIC..And Hajime who looks like Saitama is also OP i mean his so damn strong but I fangirl at him like the Warden do hahaha <3 ... Their battle in the New years Tournament is also epic talk about Jyugo became so badass.... Even though i thought he was the weakest one in the goup lol..
I caught on to this show because I saw a trailer and I thought it looked like something funny to kill time with. And yeah well it is actually for quite a while .. and from one sec to the other its literally raining blood and you see how badass some characters really are.. (I mean did you think that saitama rip off just looked like that for the lolz?^^) I'm at ep 8 right now and can't wait for the next one. I'm soo on the hype train =D for serious review: the story isn’t really deep at first, but funny and then it changes to a kinda deep story, which really isn’t something one would normally laugh about anymore. characters are rather simple but fun to go along with. the animation is quite okay I guess (I love the sparkles) and the ending theme is hilarious xD oh and i totally love how there are no naked boobs involved (at all!) overall quite recommendable if you’re not really sure what you’re looking for.
