What's this? A comedy set in prison? Does that mean it'll be ecchi like Prison School?

Judging from the trailer, not at all! With the art style, it looks more like JoJo's Bizarre Adventure took a trip to jail... With some BL potential!

So it'll be like a funny version of Deadman Wonderland or Norageki!?

Maybe! To give you a summary, it's about four prisoners who keep trying to break out! It's based on a full-color manga from online publisher Comico!

On a lone island in the ocean stands a giant, impregnable prison. With its tough guards and the world’s highest level of security, not a single person can escape… Right?!

Juugo (Prisoner No.15) is a genius escape artist with mysterious shackles. Uno (Prisoner No.11), a gambling womaniser. Rock (Prisoner No.69) is a debaucherous guy always ready for a fight. Nico (Prisoner No.25), a chronically ill otaku.

Hajime Sugoroku, the strongest guard, spends his days running around trying to stop these four strange residents of cell 13, block 13 from breaking out.

Three Episode Impression

The first thing you notice about The Numbers aka Nanbaka is its unique art style, and that first stunned impression still doesn’t leave you even after three episodes. That’s not the only unique thing this comedy anime has to offer, either - the characters, too, are refreshing and enjoyable to watch, even (or should I say especially?) the minor characters. The first episode is notably hilarious, although the following two are, to be honest, less funny. But don’t let the drop in overall humour make you stop watching, there are still some moments of pure gold to be found in this fast-tempo prison comedy. If you like individualistic art styles like JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure and random, parody-style comedy, make sure to give The Numbers a go.
