The series focuses on Jyugo, Uno, Nico, and Rock, four young prisoners at a unique prison where inmates are divided into groups and assigned numbers.

Episode 1

This is pretty much a prison comedy, and unlike with the other comedy about guys behind bars, there is not much in the way of ecchi. It's off to a decent start as the comedy is nice, but the animation is another story. Anyway, seeing all those boys messing around like that while facing all of the traps this prison throws at them is pretty funny. Nico sure is one crazy inmate, that he is. In any case, the comedy is really great.

The comedy feels kinda forced imo. Maybe it's not just the type for me.

I've heard about the manga awhile ago..but still, this type of comedy feels a bit much with the prison gimmicks. I'll give it more episodes though as the characters seems somewhat interesting.

Despite how bizarre it was I actually had some pretty good laughs. That OP was pretty catchy.

Also, were they sparkling throughout the entire episode? lol

Episode 1:

I know silly comedies don't need to have any kind of plot, but maybe this anime uses that resource a little too much.

Like "BAM!, here, have a bunch of characters, like 'em" lol

Also, dafuq with all those glows and sparks around all the freaking time ? :3 Does it has a meaning whatsoever aside of being annoying?


Looks like One Punch Man got a lousy job as a prison guard :3


At least, he has a sparky nice hat.

An anime original beginning? That's new and a little bit disappointing because the first volume of the manga is better. I'm not exactly sure what their plan is (the second half of the episode was from the manga but it's chronological wrong), I hope it's getting to the tournament arc as fast as possible and that's why they rushed through this episode like this.

This wasn't too bad honestly. A few humorous moments, Some kinda weird plot development with number 15 at the end there too, but overall not bad at all. This is one of the few that has caught my eye, to say the least. Hopefully it isn't JUST them trying to escape, I can see that being a running gag and that's fine, but if it is them doing that as the main thing they do every episode, I will probably drop it.

That glittering sparkle stuff was so annoying. I didn't even make it halfway through before I stopped it.

Seems like it's a good "zone out" anime. Something to watch right after coming home from work while getting relaxed and moving on to other shows.

I thought it was pretty funny, for now i definitely want to see more. I really like the animation and art. All of the bright colors are really eye catching and fun.

Yo every year and every season...traps are evolving...and I'm not talking about the prison traps...

I'm liking it, but probably because I recently saw 'Deadman Wonderland', which was depressing as hell, lol.

mmm

There are story telling styles wherein all the character are introduced in full swing at the begining and this one is one of them but the difference is
NONE of the characters are interesting.... well ....except for the warden.

I didnt find it funny at all.and the colors were too bright I found myself saying these words in monotone " o...kay ....all ...righty... ....mmm....so... is this it?

I was bored
Needless to say I stopped watching right after the second half

I tried man.... I tried
