Yoshihiro Maedamulti-episode animation director of the Anime adaptation of the Manga written and illustrated by Akira Hiramoto, Prison School (Gakuen Kangoku), posted an update on Twitter revealing a panel sketch that didn’t make it to the final product on TV. Apparently he was unable to make the final animation despite the director’s protests, as he wrote: “The director protested and did everything he could, but in the end the cut (frame/scene) was being censored with mosaic.».
Akira Hiramoto published the original manga through the magazine Young Magazine of the Week from the publisher Kodansha in February 2011, and was completed in December 2017 with a total of twenty-eight compiled volumes. The drama inspired a twelve-episode anime adaptation produced by JCSTAFF studios, which was released in July 2015.
This work is as much loved as it is hated by fans, especially loved by those who have only seen the anime adaptation. In the words of the fan: «This manga is the perfect example of what happens when the author runs out of ideas and starts experimenting with pointless plot twists, destroying the entire character development and story in the process. I was disappointed, the ending is very crude and feels forced».
Summary of the Prison School
Hachimitsu Private Academy, an elite girls’ high school, opens its grand doors to male students for the first time in its history. However, the five boys who sign up are a quiet bunch who can’t communicate with the girls. This group of misfits consists of the foreign delinquent Shingo, the strange and sickly “Jo”, the obese “Andrei”, the intelligent “Gakuto” and Kiyoshi, the most normal of the group. The five boys are disturbed by their lack of female interaction and embark on a dangerous mission to spy on some girls while they are in the shower.
However, due to a series of mishaps, their operation fails, exposing the boys’ actions to the entire school. Because of their crimes, the Students’ Council threatens to sentence the boys to a month. What the ruthless beauty of the council doesn’t know is that the boys’ bad and unusual sermons will only get worse.
