    Thoughts on this silly (and action-filled) adventure
    Okay, now that season 2 is over, it's time that I add to my review. My thoughts on season 1 and the first episode are below. (spoiler free of course)

    Season 2
    Right out of the gate, I'll say that season two made this series so much better. It took the action from the arena arc in season 1 and amped it up by 300%. The first few episodes are completely comedic, like the series started. After ...

    Dumb, but fun! Seriously!
    This did something few anime have been able to do: It made me laugh.

    It's as dumb as a box o' rocks, but it's OK with that, and so am I. It doesn't take itself too seriously, and because of that, it succeeds where others do not. It's definitely worth a watch to see if it matches up with your sense of humor. I'm looking forward to next week's ep. to see if it can make me laugh again.

    Manga now an Anime, count me in!
    BASED ON MANGA

    A Comedic Gem Out of Left Field

    If you enjoy the manga just watch it, it is a very fun and entertaining experience, and for anyone who has not read the manga, you can just pick up the anime and roll right along.

    The entire anime is based on a bunch of prison goer's who are trying to escape the worlds highest security prison, and they have done this many ...

    Review based on 25 episodes
    What is going on!?

    The show is excellent (I love it) but suffers from an identity crisis.

    It starts as a comedy and does it very well. As it begins to run out of gags it mixes in serious Shonen action and this midsection is where it begins to suffer. The show can't decide whether it should be a Shonen or a comedy. Fast forward to season 2 (episodes 13 - 25) and the gags are reeled back a bit ...

    Nanbaka is supposed to be a comedy!
    Sparkles, humour, bad-ass prison guards.
    This show gets better with each episode, poking fun at itself during the (great) filler episodes, when things get serious it delivers excellent action that really hooks you in, then goes right back to making you laugh.

    Just watch it and you will see.

    Intro and outro are super catchy, I love this anime
    The intro and outro are super catchy and even though in most anime I skip over them after a while, in this one I always listen to them. I find the anime itself hilarious. I thought it was weird at first, especially since everything sparkles, but the more I watched the more I became addicted. I love this anime.
