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 like this manga alote it has good character development and deals with dark theme( i like dark manga..well dark anything really). the only thing about this is that is similar to another manga and i hope it has a better ending than that one. over all it's pretty cool and their is an anime coming out in 2011

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.

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 used to drop Deadman Wonderland. I forgot the reason why, and didn't understand myself back then. This piece is enthralling.

The story gets interesting very early with obvious dark theme. At some points the story gets brighter, but you won't see that long; it will turn dark again after that for sure, except for one point in the story. Despite strange sudden changes of personalities, overall story is an uphill.

The is fast paced, sometimes a bit too fast for me. Flashbacks are wisely shown to keep readers attached even stickier. One thing that annoys me a bit is the 'sudden' twist with the real boss debut. Some periods of the story, especially the beautiful ending, are highly emotive. The length of the story is neither too long nor too short.

The plot is not that unpredictable; it's not like we cannot guess who that guy actually is and such. It still is, however, hard to guess about some important points. What I don't really like are the reasons of villains' wrongdoings. It's just, well, somewhat weak. You don't get a lot of explanation, but it gives that just at sufficient amount.

Some characters are so real; some are not, though all are intended to be. The fact doesn't bother me much anyway, because my mind puts all attention on the intriguing story.

The art suits the story so well. Kondou Kazama's art is full of darkness and extreme expression. The coloured pages are impressive.

To sum up, Deadman Wonderland is... surely breathtaking.

It's a really good manga. The art is nice, and it's not all about violence. The characters are likeable and it starts off in a confusing way, but it makes you want to read more to see whats going to happen.

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.

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.
