Wow, I couldn't think of anything better. Seriously, that was great.
So, What do you think is on the other side?

That was a nice ending, which tied everything up and also let us have one last glimpse at all the characters.

I really need to re-read the series, though, as I still feel somewhat disconnected from what is going on after the hiatus.

Great ending, all said.

We got a nice epilogue at the end. This last chapter was really well written, however I didn't really get the manga's message.

"Facing irrationality doesn't mean not feeling fear, but rather possessing eyes that gaze upon fear." ~ by Mangastream

This message kinda feels a little bit dumb. I just can't see how this reflects on our real life or the real world.

Please help me understand!

Not quite understood by myself either. But something along the lines of;
If you're just able to see something irrational, which brings fear, doesn't mean you don't fear it, you are just able to see it.

Don't know if that gives you an idea. But I still can't figure out either.
So, What do you think is on the other side?

"The scars remain and they may be deep, but they have a future worth living." ~from a MangaHere visitor

This pretty much sums up how I feel about the ending. One of the best mangas I've read and an excellent ending...or should I say beginning?

I'm so happy this is how it ended. it was lovely seeing everyone and what they were doing afterwards. Ganta sure has grown a bit. Looks more mature now. Definitely one of the best manga out there. Was great the whole way through. Very satisfying ending. Looking forward to buying all the volumes again when they come out in english next year :D

I interpreted it as, when you encounter something in life that doesn't make sense, don't fear it. Instead, accept it as reality with a brave heart.

Beautiful ending to a well-written story. Love seeing the characters and how much they've grown. Going to miss reading this. Many thanks to Kataoka-sensei and Kondou-sensei.

I agree as well. I was a little late on posting my response though, so I hope you don't mind if I put my two cents in...
I interpreted as, "When faced with what seems to be the impossible, it's okay to be afraid. What matters most is overcoming that fear by facing it headstrong."
Basically, even though our struggles can bring fear and self-doubt, we have to push through to achieve what we want & what we believe is right ("rational"). We cannot turn a blind eye to fear, for our trials cannot be truly overcome without accepting it first.
Hope this helps a little more.

I really wasn't expecting both of them to survive.
Too sad that this manga is over.
I was quite a good read. I really enjoyed it.

Ending seemed somewhat ambiguous to me but it was overall a good run. Shiro wakes up as well :3

>Will you listen to how the song goes on?

Magical question there. 7/10.

I seem to have a somewhat different view than everybody thus far. I think the series as a whole is outstanding and a something I will read again from start to finish in the future. However, I did not like this final chapter.

It felt rushed and inconclusive--paling in comparison to the chapter before. I would have liked more details on what they are all doing now, especially Ganta and Shiro. I got what was going on for most of the characters, though maybe just a dialogue box with added details would have been really satisfying. Most frustratingly, when I get to the most important characters I see a cryptic prisonesque hospital and lots of art shot pages where the story could have been advancing the story. After the end to their battle and all the build up there wasn't even dialogue between the two and I'm not sure where exactly Shiro even was. It was like oh she's in a coma maybe, but maybe not she's opened up her eyes. And now she has to decide if she wants to hear the rest of the song? Live the rest of their lives?

Overall the series was great, but I really hate being left with question marks. Things don't feel concluded at all like that. Maybe they will eventually do a special chapter or a follow up side series like Mirai Nikki Redial and fill in the blanks/give more details. That would be awesome and I would definitely buy it.

Dunno if it deserves an 8 or a 9, will need to reread the whole thing, the hiatus hurts.

That smile.

A big thank you for Kataoka and Kondou for creating a great manga that I thoroughly enjoyed reading. I won't deny that the hiatus didn't hurt the reading experience but it was unavoidable and considering the pressure they must have felt, the quality of the chapters post hiatus was incredible.

Honestly, I think it's remarkable that both Kataoka and Kondou were able to deliver such an ending (including the last couple of chapters) after the hiatus, especially considering that Kataoka delivered a baby and had to take care of her son while writing the rest of the story.

This manga ended much more happily than I think a lot of people were expecting. This was the first manga I have ever read and enjoyed reading it from beginning to ending. Like others, I do hope a 2nd season will be made but I think it'll only come out in the U.S. since it was a big hit on Toonami. If a 2nd season does happen, I personally hope the anime will try to elaborate on the ending more. I think the ending was a bit rushed and could've been a bit better but I still enjoyed the ending.

Im happy for the good ending, but I expected a bit better ending for the main cast.
The rest of the crew are trying to continue their lives normaly, whitout using their branches of sin... The two main characters are both alive, but Shiro is imprisoned and she was in coma for some time... She is always behind the bars :'(
I knew that the end was going to surprise me, as every plot twist of this manga always did, but this time it done it in the wrong direction.
I wanted to see Ganta and Shiro togeather in some isolated house after 5-10 years, looking at each other and smiling, laughing their ass off, eating loads of candies, remembering old traumas and crying tears of joy for the second chance they got. Maybe some kisses would be nice too :D
Yeah, that would be the the end they deserved after the hell they gone through, but at the end, nobody ever gets what they deserved... Dooh :p
Art should be left alone by those unenlightened, raw and uncensored as it is, because enough refinement was already done by it's creator, in it's creation.

Pretty good ending but would have liked some main cast interaction and a little more detail on what everyone was up to & definitely 2-3 more panels on what happened after Ganta see's Shiro wake up.

But funny how everyone seems to like the happy ending here, while in Gantz

That is exactly what I was thinking. It was a good chapter but it just didn't feel complete.

I'm pretty satisfied with this ending. I don't think a huge epilogue was needed, although it would have been nice if it was explained how they survived the explosion. That's my only issue.

Its over! Damn reading this made me realize how many years have passed I mean this started in 2008! That's before I even knew you could download anime. I was 16 then just a teenager! I still have the memories though, I named my mangafox account (back when I still used mangafox) after the chapter "Bloodthirsty majesty" because it sounded cool. The chapters with the Owl and his gang along with the clash of scar chain vs the anti-branch of sin guys (including Ganta's friend the snake girl) gave me some many emotions back then.

I think this is also the first manga that I knew the source material of before it got a anime adaptation. Although the anime didn't get far I still liked it especially the OP.

Man this was such a great manga. It had a crazy and survival game premise and executed it perfectly I remember feeling Ganta's hopelessness back then. And also his courage when he became stronger. I guess they revealed to everyone that Ganta was innocent? When I first started this my main question was how they are gonna clear that up for him. Looks like a happy end for everyone who survived this crazy ride.

Overall 10/10 becuase this manga hit me DEAD CENTER

And so it ends. It was a very good ending.
Gets a 8/10 from me.
Shiro is one of my top characters easily... Not so much for Ganta, though.
All in all, it had a lot of good moments and some okay ones too.
And yes, the Hiatus hurt a bit.

I'm glad it had a happy ending after all the shit Ganta & co had to go through, but at the same time, I feel it shouldn't have had such an ending. Gawd, conflicted. I was expecting a depressing ending where Shiro & Ganta both die. But I guess it's nice to have something that isn't so sad.

Makina's back on her feet! That made meh happeh. Minatsuki learning to be a vet, Chaplin in theater, the old man as a teacher. It was all nice.

Some of the things revolving around Rinichiro fell rather flat throughout the series, and I was hoping for more info between the last two chapters, but overall, it was still good. Oh, and I was hoping there was a timeskip of around 10-so years, but this is when I was expecting Ganta & Shiro to have died. In any event, 8/10.

I am also satisified with this ending. Overall, Deadman Wonderland was a pretty good manga. It had some flaws but was great nonetheless. I was really looking forward to every chapter. Still I don't think it deserves an 8 or a 9. To my mind, it's a solid 7.

Wow way happier than I expected it to end. I assumed it was going to be super bittersweet. It felt a little rushed right around the hiatus and until it's return and finish. I guess it's hard to be a mother and do this type of work maybe.

I am impressed, was going to give it a 7/10, but I think because it wrapped up so well I am going to bump it up.

Never mind I was searching for the wrong chapter number.


Ughh I can't believe it ended, I'm gonna miss it so much, never would have I thought after finishing the anime that this manga would be so epic. The impeccable art, the setting, the likable and interesting cast, the amazing action scenes, the character development and depth it was all so good and handled so well. Big props to the author, well done. Even though I think the ending could have been better it was still good so I can't give this less than a 9.

9/10 Also Shiro added to favorites. I love her.

Ending was rather satisfying. I liked how it showed us an aftermath, and what the other characters are doing after the events at Deadman Wonderland.
I'll give this series an 8/10 (maybe a 9).
