It looked like it would be a normal day for Ganta Igarashi and his classmates—they were preparing to go on a class field trip to a certain prison amusement park called Deadman Wonderland, where the convicts perform dangerous acts for the onlookers' amusement. However, Ganta's life is quickly turned upside down when his whole class gets massacred by a mysterious man in red. Framed for the incident and sentenced to death, Ganta is sent to the very jail he was supposed to visit.

But Ganta's nightmare is only just beginning.

The young protagonist is thrown into a world of sadistic inmates and enigmatic powers, to live in constant fear of the lethal collar placed around his neck that is slowed only by winning in the prison's deathly games. Ganta must bet his life to survive in a ruthless place where it isn't always easy to tell friend from foe, all while trying to find the mysterious "Red Man" and clear his name, in Deadman Wonderland.

Deadman Wonderland adapts the first 5 volumes of Kazuma Kondou's and Jinsei Kataoka's manga series of the same name. Some characters from the manga were not featured in the anime, notably the then minor character Azami Midou and the gay crossdressing character Masaru Sukegawa.

So, you're telling me we've got a prison that doubles as an amusement park? Sign me up—oh wait, maybe not actually sign me up, that place is nuts! "Deadman Wonderland" throws you into this wild ride, and just when you're buckled in, it goes off the rails... and not entirely in the way the manga did.

Look, if you're a die-hard fan of the manga, brace yourself. The anime takes some, let's say, "creative detours." It's like ordering a pepperoni pizza and getting one with pineapple. Some of you might love the surprise, while others... not so much.

That said, as its own beast, the anime is ...

Mixed Feelings
Unfortunately, my experience watching Deadman Wonderland was not very satisfactory. Overall, I found the anime weak and disappointing, with a quite annoying protagonist who didn't add much to the plot. Additionally, the main girl was often sexualized in an unpleasant way, which bothered me quite a bit.

Although the premise of the story is interesting, the overall development of the anime left much to be desired. It was difficult for me to emotionally connect with most of the characters and their journeys.

However, I must say that Senji Kyomasa and Nagi were the only characters that really caught my attention. Their unique personalities and well-crafted motivations kept ...

Deadman wonderland, the amazing first season of a series that would never be. Chained to mediocrity not by its art, characters, or plot but by its lack of continuation. Leaving the viewer wanting so much more yet painfully asking "that's it!?"

Deadman wonderland is quite an interesting and entertaining anime. An anime with lots of promise for the road ahead. Its characters are portrayed very well, being dynamic with conflict and exciting yet with much mystery as to their full motivations and backstory. The story is captivating and entertaining to watch unfold, yet also holds an air of mystery as to how the story will end, ...
