Six minors (16 - 17 years) answering to the nicknames of Joe, Mario, Suppon, Baremoto, Heitai, and Kyabetsu are put into a reformatory for offenses such as aggravated assault, swindling, flight, etc. Their stay in hell begins immediately. Accommodated by a doctor pedophile, they are placed under the watch of a despotic and brutal crew. Cellmates with a certain Sakuragi (called Anchan), the tension rises between the band of buddies and their new "friend." A brawl breaks out, and our six prisoners are done rossés by the mysterious young man, thanks to his boxing talent.

The story will not only follow the lives of these seven characters surviving in their hellish environment, but also their disillusions due to the rejection by the outside world and by their close relations. This is about the extraodinary and invincible friendships between these young men.

Rainbow received the 2005 Shogakukan Manga Award for the seinen/general category along with A Spirit of the Sun.

The jail part is fantastic, but after they get out of jail there's a bunch of arcs where things just go pointlessly wrong and the solution is always "I get by with a little help from my friends," does it ever pick back up again from that repetitive nonsense? I don't want to read through several more boring interchangeable arcs unless there's a real storyline somewhere down the line.
are they going to upload the first volumes ? or does anyone know where I can read them? thanks!
Who the heck ever dared to rate this under 10 ?
This is beyond a masterpiece. Clearly, if you haven't read it, do it. If you already read it, read it again.
