My Thoughts

I give Nanbaka Part Two a C

Humorous, zany, and very colorful, Nanbaka is the opposite of what you would think of when you hear about an anime that takes place in a prison. Nanbaka follows a group of wacky inmates that get themselves in constant trouble with whatever hijinks they can come up with while the guards try and stop them at every turn, the only side to that is that the guards are a little weird too.

This anime is incredibly bulky, with each episode being 24 minutes with 25 episodes. At first it seems like a very slow slice of life type of show inside of a prison following a certain group of rambunctious man children but the series ultimately takes a much more action oriented turn halfway through and thats when the series grows into its own. Some of the sequences are fast paced and can keep up with some of the better fights while some of the scenes in between fit pretty nicely and weaves a nice story into an episode.

Overall the series was enjoyable to watch and offers a 2 for 1 combo of solid comedy with above average action and drama.
