Absolutely Amazing!!
1 January 2020 | by albinjoy-39969See all my reviews

Honestly, I love this anime. It is absolutely a work of art and a masterpiece' The story is very interesting and is full of so many plots and unexpected scenes that would totally shock the audience! It's about how 7 kids were placed in the same cell in a disciplinary school and became strong friends. They were violated and abused by a guard and a doctor in the prison even though all they wanted to do was to be free. They especially wanted their "Bro" to be free more than them! The guard and doctor were trying their hardest to keep "Bro" in the disciplinary school by framing him and tempting him to break a rule in order to save his friends or to save his own life! I honestly think that I've cried more watching this anime than in Naruto. I don't think it's just me but every time I see an antagonist doing something wrong to the boys I've always felt like punching him. The anime truly taught me that strong friendships would last till the very end. In my opinion, I don't think much people even know about this anime even though it's worth attention. Plus it's only 26 episodes! I honestly 110% recommend this anime for any anime watchers not only because the anime is a masterpiece but because it should receive the attention it truly deserves!
