Anime News Network's New York Comic-Con 2016 news coverage sponsored by Yen Press.
Media distribution service Crunchyroll announced at its Otakon panel on Saturday that it will stream the Nanbaka The Numbers television anime this fall. The anime adapts Shō Futamata's Nanbaka manga, which Crunchyroll is also offering online.
The original manga centers around four prisoners: Jūgo, a man who attempted to break out of prison and ended up extending his jail time; Uno, a man who likes to gamble with women; Rokku, a man who likes to get into fights; and Niko, a man who likes anime. Along with their warden Hajime, the high-tension action comedy story unfolds.

Airu Shiozaki as Rokku, Prisoner Number 69
Daiki Kobayashi as Niko, Prisoner Number 25
Tomokazu Seki as Hajime Sugoroku, block 13 warden
Satomi Akesaka as Momoko Hyakushiki, prison warden

Shinji Takamatsu (Mobile Suit Gundam Wing, School Rumble, Gintama) is directing the anime, with scripts by Mitsutaka Hirota (The Prince of Tennis II, Bayonetta: Bloody Fate, Phantasy Star Online 2: The Animation).
The anime will premiere this fall.
Futamata launched the manga on the Comico app in 2013. The second compiled book volume shipped in Japan on May 12. Crunchyroll digitally published the first volume of the manga in English last December as part of a collaboration with Comico.
