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?

Character development throughout the series was always brief, i dont really find any of the other characters memorable and it feels like it uses shock factor too much in bad tastes to toot

The plot was pretty interesting and made me read till the end, the story does pass by somewhat fast and it loses some touch, the one thing that I did get emotionally invested though was the relationship between Shiro and Ganta everything else was lackluster.

Shiro. Like with Inori from Guilty crown(though that was much less enjoyable overall), when I think of Deadman Wonderland I remember Shiro.

To get more in depth, this manga also gave me the first (I think also the only ever still now) character who I saw as sexually frustrated/in the need of being satisfied in that manner and with her being as beautiful as she is(far from just phsyically), in my mind being the volunteer at it. Weird to type out? One dude on MAL blocked me becuase of having said that in a conversation with him. My first conversation on MAL, and he did that.
Manga updates seems to be a lot better, less elitist pricks who can't discern subjectivity, and the referenced type of kids who follow in their steps.
The character I'm talking about is Yoh's sister.
I love her character, and now that I think of her after having since gotten to know of Asuka, I realise that the way my liking for her had developed is similar to the reason why I developed love for Asuka Langley(who is my favourite person that doesn't exist).
Just as Asuka's, her mental state was to me utterly fitting, believable, relatable, and I wanted to be there for her.

But okay now..
If a story does to me what Shiro's presence did in this story, I'll be satisfied.
I hope the Woodpecker is happy now.

Ok so it was compelling at start, but later on the first chapters, it was nothing but your typical grotesque shounen. Impossibly naive MC who lacks character development despite everything he's been through, the stereotypes, and its unrealistic.

Just a sick unnecessary torture manga. I've read and loved manga like Death Note, Gantz and Mirai Nikki where they share in the Strategic Minds or Game of Death genre, but this doesn't get me excited like they did. This just feels silly by comparison. It just feels completely and wholeheartedly fake and unrealistic. I don't feel or care about the characters, and I hope they all die.

Truthfully, I got as far as when they punish Crow for losing the battle (ch. 11). I wasn't feeling it before then, definitely wasn't feeling it now.
Why would he be excited to fight if he knew he had the potential to lose a body part? Why was he be hoping to some extent to lose the fight? Why did he have all his body parts before battling the kid even though he's clearly not the strongest person. He never lost a fight before? Really?!
Most manga's ask that you humor them and believe one or two concepts. This one just kept asking that I humor them consistently and throw logic out the window. Nah. I'm good.

I used to rate this 10/10. I thought this was quite refreshing but after awhile the series was just disappointing with the typical shounen scenes. The last 10 chapters I put off for years till now. The very end was eh. Better than the result of the final battle though. I was rolling my eyes so much at that cliche.

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

I'm not completely done with the manga yet, but from where I am at right now, I am quite satisfied with the manga. But DANG THE CLIFFHANGERS!

This story's protagonist falls dead into the altruistic-main-lead category, and tries to save everyone through NAKAMA POWERRR. (<---the one part that annoyed me greatly) But in the end, he is often saved by the main girl, who has more power than one may think.

Long story short: good story, interesting, i need to get back to reading. smile
If I'm not back by next week to update my review, then you'll know that the manga did not live up to my expectations and was not worth my time.

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.

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.
