  • A funny, but action packed series
    Updated Review: I am increasing my rating of Nanbaka by 1 star after finishing epsiode 26 just recently. Although the first arc had awful writing, the writing after that arc improves very much. In the second arc dealing with Enki, I think the villain's name was, the plot does get better and not so predictable. However, my four star rating remains because the writing of the series ...

  • good anime, pooly done
    This anime starts off great, gets bumpy and, stuck in traffic like some other anime's and falls off a cliff. characters with crazy backstories are sent to a not so much high security prison, it has its traps and some guards, weak and strong, but useless when you lock up those with amazing skills and powers from crazy backstories. in the first episode they are already breaking out like its child's ...

  • don't mind me just passing by
    This is my favorite anime, the only one I can watch over and over without getting tired of it. I might get hated for elf being my favorite. The story is so nice, everyone has a great back story and a lot of references in there. It's worth watching believe me.

  • A slice of life prison comedy?
    ... well yeah, and the show is strongest when it does that, playing each character's quirks off each other for increasingly silly resolutions. Points off though for the sudden turns the show takes into an earnest, dramatic, self-serious meditation about a young man grappling with his powers. The two shows being smashed together don't complement each other, and the serious show in this just isn't ...

    Got bored reeeeaal fast
    I started watching, but there's only so much suspension of disbelief I can handle. Couldn't even make it through the first episode. The one watching the cameras is freaking out because the group is escaping, but later on someone says it's the 2nd (or 3rd) time they tried to escape that day? Yikes.

    A good balance between serious and funny
    I finished season 1 and 2 in a day, which is already testament to its ability to keep the viewer engaged. The action sequences were certainly above average, especially in season 2. Some of the jokes fell flat on me -some of those were probably lost in translation- but for the most part, Nanbaka was seriously entertaining. The Roomba/Nanba pun had be rolling.
    There is a clear sense of progression ...

  • A total mixed bag for me
    I'll keep this one as short and sweet as i can, nanbaka is a show that would've been better if it just stuck to it's initial roots. What started off as a goofy, yet action packed prison comedy tries to do all that while having an overly dramatic story that, by the end, leads to nowhere.

    The first season, as flawed as it was, was at least fairly enjoyable and does provide some interesting ...
