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?

This manga has a very good and unpredictable plotline. The various characters each evolve throughout the story and some of them are even unknowingly connected to each other one way or another. Very interesting and a good read.

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.

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

great plot and everything at the start...
but now all this seem's kinda over used...
usually shounen manga would be like this:
*some initial question's...
*solve this question...but this answer lead to more questions...
*new arc...go to step 1
and its like this...

but kinda solved some, almost none questions...
but i think the mangaka never had ideas to continue this manga after arc 1...
so...he hasnt new questions to lead us by...
and with this...this new arc... is mainly an filler...leading to nothing...and making us bored

Its so weird... I love it. Its so violent, and misleading sometimes, that you really start to understand him. When he finally gets to the point of thinking he can survive in there without too much psychological damage, something messed up happens again.
The art is really nice too, I think

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.

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.

It's a question of transience

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.
