Synopsis

Six minors (16 or 17 years) answering to the nicknames of Joe, Mario, Suppon, Baremoto, Heitai and Kyabetsu are put into a reformatory for offences such as aggravated assault, swindle, flight, etc. Their stay in hell begins immediately. Accommodated by a doctor paedophile, they are placed under the monitoring of a despotic and brutal crew. Companions of cell of certain Sakuragi (called Anchan), the tension flares up between the band of buddies and their new "friend".

Although the title maybe misleading, okay wait, it is misleading but guys, read the summary. I picked this Manga up, thinking it was worth a try and it really was worth a try.

We meet 6 inmates going to a reform facility (juvenile hall) in 1955, some innocent (in my eyes) others not so, however the horrors that lies ahead of them would make you shiver and shake.
Taking his time to flesh out his characters, the writer did a most outstanding job, he didn't rush and in doing so, you'll find complex personalities, realistic pasts and you'll see the characters as people. Not just characters read more

Preliminary
As a fan of violent and tragic stories, I expected maybe a bit too much from this manga. On paper, Rainbow seemed to be on par with the type of manga I read and liked (like Shamo, Sidooh), but it turned out to be less believable.

The manga focuses first on the lives of youngsters in a juvenile prison, and later on how they cope with the hardships of the outside world. What confused me first was the way that the manga "switched" the main character, but as it went on, I got used to it. I think the manga is supposed to be read from read more
