Description
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?

Has potential to be very interesting...

Hmmm... it's got potential to become a rather interesting series if it plays its' cards right. Will it be able to breath life into a bunch of cliches or will it turn into yet another dragged-out serialisation? So far, the direction of this series seems to swing from 1 direction to another.

What I really liked: the protagonist and some of the characters, the craziness of this manga(on the level of certain other mangaka), the art(character designs, the mecha designs and even part of the prison levels were kinda cool), that it's grim and gritty yet dosed with a pinch of light-heartedness so things are fairly balanced, the secrets everyone seems to hold and how almost everyone really struggles to form some sort of power relation with one another, the twists and mysteries, etc.

What I really disliked: the amount of cast members(important and lesser members, those who've appeared and those who haven't) which will likely mean limited characterisation or even recycled characters and dragged-out tournament fights unless the manga creators can get it right(tough if you're trying to go for a mostly fighting manga unless you veer from that direction or can handle it). And too much random stuff in every odd chapter instead of building on the plot, character and action layers bit by bit and that the rapid pacing in the earlier chapters is starting to slow a darn lot.

So, I'll probably pick up this series again in a while's time to see if it crash-landed or headed for a round of smooth sailing. And it's worth checking out just for the fun of it.

I mean this manga is violent, but I didn't think it was overly violent. A violence towards an artistic aesthetic extent. Obviously, they'll be cliche's and certain things unexplained... this is, fiction, after all (to those bashing the manga already) and the girl poppin' here and there just adds to her air of mystery (which is what the manga artists clearly intended). I found the story to be elaborately developed but in a good sense, for their was little lack of confusion. So far, it's all a matter of taste... and I find this story to be more than just a futuristic retelling of gladiator's killing another; there's an essence of an allegory to symbolize humanity, maybe? or maybe I'm reading too much into it. But give it a try if this is your thing, you'll enjoy it!--- even if it is cliche in the world of sci fi manga.

read all 12 chapters at once........ Man, this manga is FUCKED UP, and I LOVE it. As I read further, my "this is sick" reactions became increasingly common. But that's good, because I love the blood, the twisted-ness of the characters, AND the girls with multiple-personality disorder.

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.

It seems like the series could develop either way. The current mysteries and twists (see chapter 11) aren't ones that tend toward longevity. If it can't break 10 volumes, it's unfortunate.

Really awesome~ Seriously

Chapter 11. Seriously man, this manga's really awesome thus far. I won't be criticizing all the plot holes, randomness, clicheness that people mentioned below since the story's still progressing. But so far man, I think its really awesome, I'm not even gonna lie. But i wonder, the title's Deadman wonderland (name of the prison), I wonder if they'll gonna be able to get out of prison. If they do, then it'll be interesting and the author can expand the story. If not, then I'm expecting the end of this manga by volume 4-5.

Anyway, its really cool manga, awesome plot twists, awesome fights, everything. Give it a try.

"Bro, you make me not wanna read this. I started it but after the first chapter I felt like stopping already. A girl comes out of nowhere and just like that...blah blah blah...How can people do that? Im tired of those stories...unexplained things just happen at random...a gril poof appears and then the story begins...I feel like I'm watching aladin and the genie...the genie comes out at random tiems and saves him..."

Pretty much my sentiments.

As of chapter 11, the story's a truckload of cliches, randomness, and pointless violence so I can't quite understand why so many readers seem to be enthusiastic about it. At the moment, the only characters whom I've found interesting were Senji, Minatsuki, and Yoh/You(?).

I could say that the situation will occur not only in 4 walls of the prison but also toward the world as well. More story develops and he will break the prison to the outside world. Like Eureka Seven, first the main character is only a punk kid who know nothing but ends up becoming a hero saving the world.
