The Great Tokyo Earthquake. Ten years ago, it destroyed lives as it tore buildings asunder. Among those who lived through the disaster was Ganta Igarashi, now a middle school student finally getting a footing in his own life... that is, until the day the 'Red Man' appears at his school and turns his world upside down again. Ganta's entire class is brutally murdered, and although innocent of the crime, Ganta is sentenced to death and sent to the bizarre prison known as 'Deadman Wonderland.' There, a brutal game of survival begins, where Ganta must discover the truth behind his classmates' murder.
Can Ganta break out of Deadman Wonderland... or will it break him first?

I don't know why, but there is something in these manga that takes me in, and capture me in a prison.
The only explanation that I have, is that the mangaka has talent.
I really recommand this one for people that likes stories with a lot of action, where there is danger behind every corner.
Warning: There is also much blood and violence in this one.

Can I say first of all, that I am not crazy about this series. I'm not eager for another chapter but I want moreee. I can't explain what draws me in about this series - that it's poignant but light at the same time(?). I actually love this series and I really recommend people to read this series and expect something subtly amazing. smile

This is a tight manga. Such a dark and twisted story with awesome art and a fresh form of "abilities."
Like action, blood, gore, tragedy? Then this is a manga that you must check out first hand.
This manga is done by the same author and artist from eureka seven also (14 year old main char with mysterious cute chick again biggrin)

well this manga is really showing signs of great anticipation.The art is great.The way the eyes are drawn reminds me of Claymore.The gore and blood is really nice and set in a entertainment park-prison where people death is as common as taking a ****.Its got me hyped for more so keep it comming !
I vote 8+ for now.

If I was new to manga, I'd consider this one to be a great read. But it so happens that I've read dozens of long series, and this just doesn't get me excited. There is no real story. The plot background is promising enough, but as you read you notice that the story doesn't seem to be going anywhere.

I don't mind slow MC character development, as long as it is done well, but here it was both slow and poor. If I didn't know any better, I'd swear Tamaki is the MC of this manga. Also, the stereotypes just seem to nibble at my brain, it's that irritatingly noticeable.

The characters are bit bland and uninteresting. Sure, there are some that I got attached to, but when the story and the rest of the characters just don't compare to those few characters, the manga itself becomes boring.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Highlights: Where the heck did Scar Chain pop out of? Owl for MC!!!! Oh, they all exited the story all of a sudden. Mockingbird pops out of nowhere and he's supposed to be an important character. Barely any development. Uninteresting. Forgeries? Hints of a possibility of manufacturing Deadmen and all of a sudden they are ready to take the stage? Ooookay. All the Deadman are ready to fight cuz of Tamaki's extremely transparent trick? No questions asked? And all of a sudden the prisoners have a concept of "us"? Oookay again. And why the heck does Ganta sometimes treat Shiro like a kid and other times like an adult? Really confusing. Srsly, any drama that develops fails to have an impact cuz I can't decide if Shiro is mature enough to understand any drama is taking place in her life or not. And just cuz Ganta is the MC, the author expects me to feel sorry for him even when random stuff happens and he makes a face? No sir, you gotta put more development in there. And don't get me started on the girl who killed her father for the lolz.

Sure, this game has a few plotholes, but if you havn't read it all you can't really complain about the "randomness" of it. I was slightly annoyed by the sudden appearance (and disappearance) of the girl at the beginning, but it adds up later on.

All I can say is that the awesome setting, the likable and strange characters and the eerie grotesqueness was JUST what I needed for the moment. Thus, I will rate it 10/10 but have full understanding for people who doesn't rate it high at all. When it comes to series like this, it's all about taste.

Was avoiding it at first, because I'd never really gotten into the "play or die" genre but I decided to give it a chance and I really loved it. Finished it in two days.

I also really love Shiro!

So to avoid spoilers I won't say anything about it other than it was EPIC! It was perfect with hints making it not out of the blue, was reasonable when explained fully, and led to an AWESOME climax! OMG I love this manga.

This is the manga I loved most, a constant battle to survive, a cruel laboratory wich does tests on humans maskered as a prison with a wonderland.
Theres a constantly tension, and we gradual read the past of the characters and understand their psicology (well, not so detailed about it but anyway thats an aspect I like).

And from now on ill talk under spoiler, so pay attenction new readers of Deadman Wonderland (DW), dont peek!

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
At first I tought that the part where it is shown Shiro is Wretched Egg was too early in the story, but few chapters after I understood it was the best choice.

The end was perfect for the manga, but it makes me feel to desire so much it would continue, but its impossible due to the story itself T_T what a nasty joke by the producers.

Also the disappear of Azami makes me bleed, she was a great character. And why Crow, your arm! I know this is a cruel manga, and I like DW also for this aspect, but you already had amputated your eye!

Oh well, I think reading it 3 or 4 times isnt enough, I have to read it more times :D
