RAINBOW Nisha Rokubou no Shichinin Episodes 01,02

Crime 1: After the Rain

10 years after the end of World War II, six boys are sent to a juvenile prison. After being probed by the doctor, the boys meet Sakuragi, who has already been in the cell for some time. They end up picking a fight 1 v. 6, and are ovewhelmed with the man’s strenght. After a beating, Sakuragi¬†shares a smoke with everyone and shares their names.

Crime 2: Fugitive

The director of the orphanage home Joe grew up in visits and tells him that they have found a home for his sister, Megu. Motivated by his feelings to see his sister and with the help of the others, Joe manages to escape. Once there, officers from the prison capture him once again. His sister sees him and advices him not to bother any longer, they can only take care of themselves. After his departure, Megu cries and says farewell to her brother.

These are super brief summaries, and do the episodes absolutely no justice. I skimmed over a bunch of emotional scenes and even skip a few key bits of the characters’ history. I strongly recommend this series if you’re searching for emotionally deep plots or something new in the anime sphere. I kind of like two episodes per post, but the summaries end up really short. I might do this again with 3 and 4, but I’ll try to go for seperate posts after that. The next month and so will be tests after tests so it might be impossible to constantly blog this series…I’m already having trouble with some other series…
