A super exciting action comedy starring the inmates and guards of the world’s most formidable prison. – My Anime List
Based on 9 review scores:
With great comedy and characters, come great anime! And fear not season two is coming in the upcoming season so there’s no need for waiting!!
I have read the manga of Nanbaka and loved it. From this first episode I can tell this series is going to do the manga justice. It captures the idiocy of the inmates and guards and all the bright colors that go with it. I enjoyed seeing the initial escape scene that wasn’t in the manga.
My Anime List
I’m not entirely sure who the target audience for Nanbaka is, honestly. Maybe I just wasn’t in the mood for chocolates.
Overall , this is a really good anime considering its gags and whole bunch of references to other anime. If you want some laughter and wanna see the most amazing characters which you probably haven’t seen in any other anime , you have to watch this!

Nanbaka was a fun anime, but it’s lack of consistent story took me out of it a great deal. If you’re looking for a full on comedy to watch then this is a great pick from this seasons ensemble of anime. But look for anything deeper and you might end up feeling a bit lacking as I am come to the shows first season conclusion.
