posted on by Amanda Whalen
Colorful costumes based on the characters from Shō Futamata's Nanbaka manga were designed by clothing brand galaxxxy to mark the upcoming anime adaptation.
Voice actors Yuuto Uemura (Jūgo), Tetsuya Kakihara (Uno), Airu Shiozaki (Rock), and Daiki Kobayashi (Nico) are shown wearing their characters' outfits below.
Shō Futamata was quoted as saying, “I really like galaxxxy's unique color usage and design, so I am incredibly excited about this collaboration! I never in my life thought that due to my manga I'd be able to have an unbelievable conversation like this. I want to try them on too!” The costumes will be worn by the cast for the NicoNico special broadcast “Nanbaka Cast Special Program Vol. 1: Escape from Nanami Prison,” which will air on June 15 at 8 PM JST.
The Nanbaka manga is serialized on the online manga service Comico in Japanese free of charge. The first volume of the manga was released digitally in English by Crunchyroll and is available for premium members.
Nanbaka is an action comedy about prisoners with various quirks and their interactions with the strongest prison wardens. The anime is scheduled to air beginning this fall, with Shinji Takamatsu of Mobile Suit Gundam Wing, School Rumble, Gintama directing, and scripts by Mitsutaka Hirota, who has previously worked on The Prince of Tennis II, Bayonetta: Bloody Fate, and Phantasy Star Online 2: The Animation.
