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?

the ending had me bawling my eyes out, so friggin sad. this manga would have been perfect if only it didn't go overly shounen with the nakama and saving everyone shtick, but as it is, i think it is great. there are no excessive chapters and it didn't go long winded and all over the place, the length is just right. most of the characters are a bit too simplistic and dang, loads of crazy blood-thirsty guys here and their 'rationalization' for killing is wonky, but all in all, they are just a vehicle for the story of these two young people so i can forgive it. this reminds me of mirai nikki, both are great shounen.

I really liked this manga, caught up with it in one go, although the anime was quite disappointing, I couldn't stand watching it after 2 episodes.
Regardless of that, this manga is not for the lighthearted, the action, suspense, gore, this manga has tons of it, but it's worth the read

the manga didn't impress me by its STYLE ( a style that can be seen in so many other series ) but I liked the anime a lot better! those who aren't impressed by the style of the manga should watch anime!
It's been a long time I've found an interesting anime like this.

All of the ones that say "boringggggg"
I mean, look at the dates! THEY'RE FROM A YEAR AGO! (ok, one from this year >:l)!!
C: The manga has SERIOUSLY picked up since then, and GAHH in the latest chapters, I was so surprised! This manga is amazing, and it has it's own unique plot line.
I am a girl, and I have this thing agaisnt shounen. I don't know why, but mostly, they involve stupid idiotic, insensitve yet attractive people as the leads. I don't like reading stuff like that.

BUT THIS, Ganta is amazing. His feelings are so realistic, and his personality's REAL. I always hated how shounen had such stupid main leads for no reason. Ganta may not be the brightest person, but atleast you understand why, because it's his nature to be a good guy (or so I think). AKA, I think he's so nice that he's a bit stupid. But not OVERLY STUPID.

I'm bad at explaining. XD
ANyway, I wanted to stay THIS and Ao no futsumashi are what dragged me into the Shounen realm, and I'm so glad they did!!!
I love this manga, and it's so unique and it keeps giving me new ideas, feelings, and excitment with each chapter I read.

It is a must read.

Have fun reading!!!~

*Great art
*great Plot
*Great Characters
*I've cried alot (REALLY TOUCHING)

NOW have fun reading ! xD

Also, the plot line is unpredictable. I was like
" OH PSH, that's gonna happen, and this is that person =.=!! BLEH"
but then I read on...

That experience keeps happening to me over and over again xD
And I'm so glad it does. I love it when I read something that is beyond my judgement! SO EXCITING )

- - - - - -


I now love Shounen. C:

From what I said above, it made it seem actionless.


biggrin It never slows down for a bit, so you're like "bleh...nothings happening"

But don't read if you don't like blood. o.o
Nah, even then, READ XD
I mean, seriously. It's not like it's COLORED or anything. O.O think of it as water .

...I'm not making my point.

IT"S TOUCHING (aka, it actually CONNECTS to you, not some plain manga csmile

So ya.

Read. c: (plus, watch anime after reading.) Anime's ruin manga experiences, >:c but are fine to watch after you've read it XD that's my belief, anyway.

I have to say, I am currently in love with this manga. It's my favorite shounen as of right now. Deadman Wonderland is an awesome manga! It has a great plot, set of characters, and the artwork is GORGEOUS! biggrin You can see all the details and effort put into each character, background, and scene (especially the fight scenes). This manga is definitely not for the faint of heart. The themes in the manga are very mature and cruel, having to do with the inhumane side of mankind. The way all the characters and Ganta are treated is absolutely terrible and hell probably can't emphasize the extreme cruelty. Also there is A LOT, I repeat, A LOT of blood and gore. If you aren't used to seeing this kind of stuff, I'd recommend you not read this unless you seriously think you can handle it. At first I was thinking this was going to be another extremely long, mainstream series but I was wrong and I'm glad I was. There is a perfect amount of time for character and plot development without the story dragging on and on. There are plot twists and many secrets that leave you wanting more. I've realized that this manga is actually really psychological, and I love that, so no wonder I've fallen so hard for this manga! Definitly read this if you want an unpredictable, psychological, not slow paced, action packed thriller! One of the best new mangas I think smile

Honestly, when I first saw this manga, I had doubts about how good it was. But after reading it, I came to love this manga. The beginning has a slow start, but after that it get very good. There's betrayal, lies, and enticing plot twists. I give this a solid 9.5/10

This manga has nice art, which makes up for the poor plot and character development...somewhat. I feel that the plot is underwhelming, and personalites of characters change so quickly and's hard to comprehend (look at Crow, for instance.)

I don't feel any emotional connections with the characters, except when Ganta does something stupid and immature and I want to bash him over the head with my dining table.
The beginning was good, and it looked like it had alot of potential. But the whole thing... I feel like the story could have been told better, somehow.

Artwork is really the only thing that is keeping me from quitting this already.

Looking for a stupid manga? Look no further then this. The plot is idiotic, the characters are totally predictable. About the only thing this manga has going for it is the art. I read the first volume, then skipped to the 8th, and didn't feel like I had missed a single thing. If you're looking for a well drawn, story that makes you dumber just by looking at it, you can't do better then this one. If you're looking for anything else, keep looking, you won't find it in this idiotic manga.
