Synopsis

Two years after the catastrophic tidal wave that swept over Japan, police officer Kiyomasa Senji is trying to make the world a safer place. Using his Branch of Sin powers, he stops criminals in whatever ways he can. After rescuing a boy named Izuru Tsukiyoshi from a gang called Goreless Peace, the conflict between Kiyomasa and his adversaries heats up rapidly, to the point of being explosive.

Offering a glimpse into the past of the future Deadman, the story follows Senji, helping to further develop the reasoning that drives his actions later in life.

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

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.

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

I technically have this rated a tick or so higher than the full series, though that's less due to any particular strength displayed by by this, and more to the disappointing ineptitude of the series. I probably wouldn't have even bothered watching it if I knew it wasn't officially a part of the first series (it's added on digital platforms—itunes, anyway—as a 13th episode). Which probably describes why most people (now, anyway) watch this: They don't realize the series ended with episode 12. (Pro-tip: If your viewers don't know the series is over, you've probably fumbled the narrative.)
