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 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 read more

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 read more

Hello =)

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 read more
