Ok, whether or not there will be a 2nd season of "Deadman Wonderland" or not, one thing is sure, this OVA is what it is said it is, very obvious that this OVA is simply a prequel spin-off of the original anime and it focuses on Senji Kiyomasa's past, just the plot alone is good enough to such point that this OVA has a potential to be a full length anime in terms a prequel from the original "Deadman Wonderland" anime , so for the story I'll give it a "Good" rating of 7.

For the art, well, since the art used is the read more

I do allude a bit to the quality (though not the content directly) of the main series' ending in this review.

Right from the beginning I had a strong suspicion that nothing good would come from watching this OVA. The original series was just disappointing, after all. Of course, I didn't realize when I started watching that it was called "Red Knife Wielder," which would have pretty much let me know that it would do nothing to actually tie up any lose ends left in the original series. Worse than not completing anything that was started in the series, it didn't even provide read more

Deadman Wonderland was an alright anime overall sure it did its job where it need to but I feel that it fell kinda short. Deadman Wonderland OVA however does quite a lot for the one episode that it is. This revolves around the bad ass character Crow and his pre-Deadman existence which was kind of skimmed over in the manga but was non-exsistant in the anime.

I won't go into detail but there's quiet a bit of character development not just for him but for the few people around him that kinda mattered but only in the OVA. The story was the best part if read more

This is a mini-review since it's roughly 30 minutes long, and there are some minor spoilers.

There's not a lot to say about this one. It's a short OVA that focuses mostly on Senji and his days as a police officer before he got sent to Deadman Wonderland. It reveals some backstory, but it doesn't solve the underlying problem of Deadman's story being criminally incomplete. It's backstory and nothing else. It's got some of Deadman's trademark action, yes, and it's always fun, but this OVA isn't much at all.
