- Uno – Prisoner No. 11. An avid gambling lover, casino and women.
- Nico – prisoner number 25. Effeminate guy with childish behavior. He is a former drug dealer who loves anime.
- Rock – Prisoner No. 69. He looks like a mountain of muscles. He loves to eat deliciously, which is why it was because of the terrible nutrition that he escaped earlier from other prisons.
- Hajime Sugoroku – prisoner observer in the Building 13. Workaholic, seemingly cruel and severe, but in fact he is a very understanding person.
The plot of the anime “Nanbaka”: what was and what will be?
Nanba Prison is considered the most famous and most severe prison in the world. It is located on a remote island, surrounded by a tall wall and generally resembles a huge city, the buildings in which are even connected by their own metro line. Only the most malicious criminals and repeat offenders come here, as well as amateurs to escape from other prisons.
In such an unusual place, a gang of special escape lovers met: Jyugo, Uno, Rock and Nico. They all once violated the law for various reasons, they have different nationalities, interests and lifestyles. But they have one thing in common – the love of escape from such a terrible place as a prison!
Throughout the series, they are either sitting peacefully in their cells, entertaining themselves in every way, or trying to escape again. All this, of course, is very annoying to the overseer of their corps, Hajime, who no longer knows how to get clever criminals to quietly spend their time. And all because the prison should not shame its honor and stop bearing the name of the “great prison, from which no one had ever escaped”! Only with such a criminal quartet will it be extremely problematic…
