but definitely not for kids, what with all the ultra-violence n
Ganta is a school kid wrongly accused of murdering everyone in his class, and he is convicted and sentenced to this hell-hole theme park style prison where the inmates have fiendish games and tests that usually kill lots of them...certain prisoners have a special power enabling them to make weapons out of their own blood, and the twisted warden who runs the joint fights these special prisoners called 'Deadmen' against each other for paying guests in an arena style death-match. Ganta is trying to find the real killer of his friends while also trying to stay alive in this nightmarish place...
with awesome animation, interesting characters and an engaging and twisted story, plus copious blood and gore, this show is a real winner...as long as u are not easily offended...
Violence is the name of the game for this anime.
But like a lot of anime the violence is only part of this entertaining show. The action is fast paced and the plot is simple and easy to follow. the characters are quite well developed and you do have some feeling when they eventually die or come to harm. There aren't too many huge plot twists like in a lot of other anime.
The only gripes I have are that i don't really like reading subtitles so i like English dubbed anime and they always use the same crappy voice actors. the main characters voice is especially annoying.
It was also disappointing to get to part 12 only to realise that it wasn't the last episode and there was a whole other series that they haven't finished yet

Today I'm gonna be reviewing Deadman Wonderland
Deadman Wonderland is a:Action,Sience Fiction,Drama,Horror,Tragic and Super Power anime
Story:It follows a 14 year old kid named Ganta Igarashi who was having a normal life with his friends until one day in school a floating read man outside there class window massacred and killed all his classmates leaving Ganta unharmed and he puts a red crystal in his chest.The next day Ganta is in the hospital and gets framed that he murdered his entire class and gets send to death at the prison Deadman Wonderland.It's not your ordinary prison the prison is a theme park for the people to go in and watch how prisoners are forced to fight for there lives and brutal games.He also mets a girl named Shiro who is his childhood friend and Ganta also gets super powers where he can shot projectiles with his own blood.But Deadman Wonderland isn't just a f*cked up prison there is also a conspiracy where there are people like Ganta that have that blood power.I think that the prison Deadman Wonderlan was the best thing in the show it was so original and it's full of insane people.The story i think was well done it keeps you hocked.My biggest issue that there are to many plot holes and no solid ending.Deadman Wonderland was supposed to have a second season but the rating where to low so it was never made but if they do make a second one i will be first in line 8.8/10
Characters:Deadman Wonderland biggest issue is that there are too many characters if the show was attest twice as long they would have gotten more screen time so some undeveloped characters.There is Ganta who is my #2.favorie because he is a strong character and believable.Shiro is #3.favorite because she is funny and not weak and there is so much more about her.Senji is my favorite because he has a cool power and likable he is the only character that has a OVA that is about his past 7/10
Animation:The animation was done by Manglob that made shows like Samurai Champloo.Really good the blood looks outstanding and so do the shadows.Some amazing facial animations and designs and you have a great locking anime 9/10
Sub or Dub?
Sub:Ganta is voiced by Romi Park that voiced Edward(Fullmetal Alchemist),Walter C(Hellsing Ultimate),Pakunoda(HunterxHunter 2011),Temari(Naruto)...Shiro voiced by Kana Hanazawa that voiced Nadeko Sengoku(Bakemonogatari),Mayuri(Steins;Gate),Outstanding performances by everyone.Great acting Ganta's voice was great when he was in the dramatic parts he did some amazing acting 9.4/10
Dub:Dubs are getting better 8.4/10
Music:Preaty good lots of rock and dramatic music.Overall good music non of it i want to listen on my iPod but good soundtrack 7.5/10
Opening:It's the theme but shorter the art is great and the song is great and it's in English 8/10
Ending:Sucked showed some pictures related to the characters and a crappy song 4/10
Negatives:Nedds a second season,allot of plot holes,to many characters that are undeveloped
Verdict:Deadman Wonderland was a great series it needs a second season badly.I loved the setting in that prison the main characters were strong and likable.If you want to watch a series that is set in an insane prison with super powers and gore the this is for you

This anime has been one of the best of the season; it has drama,
interesting characters and rather a lot of gore! The protagonist is a
school boy called Ganta; he is the sole survivor of an attack on his
class at school, unfortunately for him he finds himself framed for
their murder and is sentenced to death in a strange prison. This prison
is like no other; it is called 'Deadman Wonderland and the inmates are
forced to compete in strange gladiatorial events where death is likely!
Ganta has been given a poison and if he is to survive he must win one
of these events every three days. He soon learns that something strange
has happened to him; he now possesses a strange skill known as
'branches of sin' which enables him to use his blood as weapon. He
isn't the only such prisoner there and if he is to survive he must
learn to use his skill. Inside he meets a strange white haired girl
named Shiro; she acts in an almost childlike way but frequently manages
to save Ganta. Ganta is determined to find the person responsible for
the death of his school friends but to do that he first has to escape
and that will not be easy.
I'd certainly recommend this series to people looking for something a little different so long as you aren't bothered by the sight of copious amounts of blood. Ganta is not a particularly heroic main character but that doesn't mean he isn't interesting even if he does whine a bit too much. The enigmatic Shiro is a more interesting character though as we knew so little about her. Tsunenaga Tamaki; the assistant warden of the prison makes a great villain as he is both sadistic and more than a little mad. The animation and character designs were both good helping make the unbelievable situation believable. The final episode didn't wrap everything up so I'm hoping that there will be further series of this excellent anime. If this series sounds interesting to you it can currently be watched legally on Crunchyroll.
These comments are based on watching the series in Japanese with English subtitles.
everyone has a little bit of bloodlust in them, this program makes you
aware of yours, there are moments that you will see (for example)
someone's eye pulled out or someone's arm cut of, it's pure gore, but
it's fascinating in a way.
I really enjoy the show, the story, and the characters, in the first part of the first episode, you'll think that it's pure justice that these prisoners are risking their lives for the audience's pleasure, but once you start to know the characters, you will see that they have problems of their own. especially the boy, he's been put there unjustly.
overall a great thing, keeps me thinking :P p.s. bear with my bad English.
