Can't wait until my favorite character in DW debuts. Somewhat disappointed that this episode was a bit different from the manga but as long as my favorite character eventually shows up, I'll keep watching. I hope her voice sounds awesome as well~

Wow, I definitely would have to agree with Ganta in wondering why so many people would enjoy watching that crap. I never hated Shiro or anything, but I thought that it was awesome how she did all those things to protect Ganta. :U

Might have to start the manga after the anime ends.

I guess this is another reason why you shouldn't make anime after manga....cause even though anime alone would stand good , because of everyone reading the manga beforehand they would all say it's ''crap compared to manga'' and so on...

I can agree with this, im normally the person who hates on people who bitch about manga and light novel comparisons. This is actually one of the first manga that ive really read since Yu Yu Hakusho (my first and that was a loooong time ago)

I guess i've come to have a deeper understanding of both sides. But regardless of whether its true to the manga, I am definitely excited about this show! Even if the anime isnt my favorite the manga will always be.

And Goddamn that OP sequence was a beast

Aight, I'm pretty sure I'm gonna drop this show. No introduction of said character and the censor of the gore...

This show hardly feels like Deadman Wonderland.

I'm most likely gonna wait til this shows over, and then check it out again.

Wow. This show is super dark, to the point where I can't see any good coming out of Ganta's ventures. I'm getting darkness induced apathy... Seriously, I just don't care anymore.

Is the audience that stupid to believe the graphic deaths in front of them are special effects??? Also, is Shiro like Stewie (Family Guy) or something? Its like the characters selectively take notice of her.

Awesome OP is Awesome. What an episode. People watching that race take place are insane. 'Special Effects?' I guess they got their money's worth out of that. >.> With inmates screaming blood cries. Whoa, why are people surprised it took Ganta so long to notice what Shiro did? It may have been obvious to us the viewers, but all he knows is that whole race they are trying to kill all the inmates. Ganta didn't have time to notice what she was doing, since he was trying to keep himself alive and only had time to think about till she was about to fall off that platform.

Would you imbeciles stop comparing it to the manga? Is there a law somehwere that says it has to be 100% true to the manga? No, so shut up. Seesh... so they wrote one charatcer out, big deal. It's not like they can't introduce her later. And they moved one scene from the caffeteria to the field, again, big whoop. If you don't like it, don't watch it, but stop throwing a fit, nobody cares about your whining. Worry if there's no Azami when RedMan gets ahead of her. Then we can talk.

Are you sure we shouldn't call you the imbecile? Cause its pretty funny, you don't care about whining when you go out of your way to address the manga readers. >.> Why are you complaining about people having an opinion? No anime doesn't have to be 100% true its original source, since they are anime originals out there. Though to some people like myself if there is a source, we would love it to follow it faithfully. I don't see why I can't be disappointed in that. No disappointment doesn't = I hate the show or the ep. They may have taken out a scene I wanted to see, but I still find this episode to be very good. Though I probably would have called it a master piece if they included that scene in. :P

Dat Opening.


I'm pretty bummed that they cut out Azumi, but hopefully it's for a good reason. Regardless, I liked this episode. Not the best, but not bad enough that I'll drop it anytime soon. I just can't wait for Senji to appear. Seeing him animated will proooobably blow my socks off.

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.
was just gonna say *wtf they completely skipped Azami! now i'm wondering when there gonna put her in Other then that i still i'm enjoying the hell of it.

This is one of those times where the manga seriously outdoes the anime... replacing one character with another entirely? I mean come on...blah. I think I'll just end up dropping this if dumb changes and cuts like that keep happening. Turns it into an "alternate reality" rather then an adaption of its manga counterpart imho. Azami is just..awesome, how could they remove her from all that. (I miss Azami D: )

WOW the opening song was horrible, the art and animation of the OP where great but the song didn't fit. As for the episode I prefer the first episode, but still it was entertaining despite the whole butchering in the storyline. I was expecting this adaptation to be 100% or at least 99.9% faithful to the manga, guess I was wrong there. But so far the 2 episodes have been enjoyable, in some way, waiting for Crow to appear.

The OP is fucking amazing but I'd wish they stuck with the manga... Seriously... The episode was kind of lame if you ask me, compared to the manga and all.

Fuck I was expecting so much from this 'cause I loved the manga so much! T_T 12 episodes: they're going for an anime ending probably, they're rushing everything and didn't introduce some characthers so it has to be.

The little pictures are the end, oh my! Oh my!

Wow! That was rough! A good rough, but rough nonetheless. I don't even read the manga and noticed a lot of censorship, but I still "enjoyed" the episode. It's just... damn. If you could think of a horrible way to die then it looks like they threw it in the race.

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)

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.

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 )':

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.
