Wow, that's a nice OP. And yeah, like most manga readers have said, they totally skipped a significant character .__. Oh well, they probably can't get to that arc in just 12 episodes anyway (unless they decide to have sequels)

Great Episode. I can't decide if I want to go find out what Shiro is on the internet and spoil it for myself or if I should wait. I REALLY want to know KNOW!

since it is only 12 show i'm not really suprised that they already skipping character and plot lines still i'm a little disapointed because azumi was a important side character in the manga....

Anpan anpan anpan! Ah, that was horrible. Ah, blood blood blood.

Man, Shiro is awesome. I am really really tempted to cosplay her, she looks so rad. Hmm.

Ah, this show is excellent.

Visiting that park and seeing attractions, it might be fun for some. But for those who understand the reality, it might be horrific.

OMG, this can't be done by Manglobe, animation was awful o.o

...

dog race and Ganta's emotions was portrayed very bad in this episode.

So damn creepy. This could easily be a horror movie, shit. I don't know why people would pay to watch stuff like that, but it seems like they think it's special effects. Shiro was bloody awesome too.

As for the cut character, I'm sure it must be disappointing for you guys but keep in mind this is only 12 eps. Also, such shows rarely get sequels. Maybe this way, they'll have more time to wrap up the arc they want to animate neatly.

I don't think it was better than the first but still very good. I expected that those games wouldn't be some innocent safe staff but they really are a killing machine considering only 1 or two persons survive at the end.
I'm kind of wondering how the hell aren't they running out of prisoners like that? If just one game kills 50 or something then what the hell?

Shiro really went out of her way to protect him but i wonder if she has some brain damage with the way she acts all the time. She didn't seem to care at all if he will save her or not while she was falling to her death and no matter what, she always react in that happy smiley way.

omg, that opening, love it, nuff' said.

so this was a fairly good episode but like everyone already said: it sucks that they messed with the storyline and erased an entire character(Azami), hopefully they will find a way to intruduce her later.

and I think this is going to get really rushed, like they'll try and squese in the entire storyline in 12 episodes (wich sounds kinda impossible), cuz right now it doesn't look like we'll get a second season.

btw it's just a feeling but I think they'll be skiping more characters -.-

I want to see less censorship and less manga plot deviation. I know those are both far off dreams since it's only going to be 12 episodes and they don't want to get sued or anything, but they should start thinking about a second season and release an uncensored version )':

On a brighter note, WHO'S EXCITED TO SEE MY BBY SENJI NEXT SATURDAY? AWWW YEAH

It seems like they censored what happened if you fell in the pit. It's obvious, but gorey gore is violent. ;D

I'm guessing Ganta will survive in the next day somehow though.

That place is sick! And I wonder how many died of those who didn't reach the final goal? It seemed pretty painful even if they survived.

The show hasn't bored me yet, so I'm still looking forward to what comes next.

The Censors are not that bad, is not like they are covering the whole screen... they darken a little bit the scene but is not as it completely out view (like some scenes of HotD).
Anyways good episode but I'm a little worried as it shown as a 12 episodes anime... hopefully this wont have some kinda of rush/slap-together ending ^^
huh?

Nice OP
It was a bit boring the next ep should be better. Finally, Block G.

But where is Azami? OK. You can let go now but later she is necessary. I can't imagine the Anime without her ...

WTF, how can people think that poeple getting shot and bleeding and being cut in half be a freaking 'special effect'??! Even if it was a special effect, i would not enjoy watching people end up like that. Well, the anime has a setting of a fked up world. So yea.
I am enjoying how the story goes and how much Ganta is tiring to live.

Hmm okay I loved the OP and the music all around, its one of this animes strong suits

While I am slightly disappointed that they skipped through some moments in the manga, I suppose its necessary for the anime to get anywhere in the limited episodes they have.

Azami is really important though so I hope they find a different way to introduce her.

Also I liked how they expanded on the past of the big thug guy, being a 6-time gold medal fighter, and beating up an actress...makes more sense as to why he was feared other than his size.

My thoughts exactly! I really hope it doesn't actually end at episode 12
4/5 for this episode.

I;m now officially worried. The episode was pretty good but anyone who's read the manga knows they essentially just wrote Azami out of the plotline in their attempt to get to the more hardcore stuff faster.

It's gonna make it awkward as hell to do a Season 2(provided the series sells) since she's half the damn reason for one of the story arcs....

On another note, damn that opening song is epic.
Definitely.. taking Azami away form this episode is going to make it hard to make her important later... i mean she is an important character and a catalyst for the series wth >_<

DW is a privately owned attraction so they probably buy out prisoners from the government or they have deals with the government to house all the prisoners. A total monopoly.

Disappointing that they removed Azami. It most likely means Manglobe doesn't intend to animate anything up to her arc and beyond and goes for an original ending.

If anybody has seen the lolcopter B rated movie Gamer with Gerard Butler, it's almost the same exact concept. In that movie, convicts are placed into a realtime FPS where citizens buy one of these convicts and control them as their "avatar".

in WWE, the audience/tv viewers knew those wrestlers are actors and just using fake bloods. i guess DMW writer got that from them. (im not really good at explaining things so try to comprehend what i said) but DMW is just too extreme, maybe because its ahead of us, it is a sci-fi anime after alll

The OP was awesome. Rewatched it a few times even.

Hope the anime isn't ruined by there being only 12 episodes as its one of my favourites this season.

I'd honestly be happy if they found some way to get around her part completely. Like, they could

I'm actually glad that they decided to completely cut Azami. All she ever was was that stupid unnecessary character that mangaka and anime writers put in simply to be "the other girl." They always put them in just to be better able to manipulate the "romance" between the male main lead and the female main lead. In my opinion, having a support character to force drama for that purpose is just annoying and lazy. If they need to resort to that, then they're better off just removing any hint of romantic feelings between the mains.

As for this episode, I'm a little concerned on how they're going to fit any of the plot in if they spend an entire episode on just the obstacle course.

The op is great, and, speaking of the op, I'm looking forward to seeing Minatsuki.


It looks like they also included a minor spoiler for her.

I'm 100% sure it's going to be ruined by the anime original ending. Such a sad thing, the orignal content was so good, could have been adapted so nicely.

I really hope they won't.

Either they are going to rush the plot in the next episodes to fit the whole series in 12 episodes which is really just stupid(the pace is good at the moment) or they are really going for an original ending...
(major spoiler)


But oh well could mean anything.

meh.

Deviation-fest from manga already started this early on. We didn't see Azami. We didn't see Ganta snapping and fighting back. We didn't see Ganta's ingenuity at figuring out the pattern of the game.

I am disappoint.

I think its better if you read the manga completely before commenting about these kind of things.

anyway, i'm not going to hope for anything anymore, i'll just wait to see what are they going to do with this series....

I actually kind of agree though. Or well, more like, I totally approve of removing Azami.
If they do something to compensate for what she brings to the plot. And I can think of a few ways they might get that to work without having to ever introduce her.

well yeah, of course i can think of a few ways that they don't have to introduce crow, minatsuki, etc., but that wouldn't be right would it? even if it was an epic alternative story.
actually i don't really care about it being right or wrong, i jut got pissed that he started writing off the story as annoying and lazy without reading it completely.
