I dont get a part of the ending:

SOO Shiro is still in a prison after the coma ? So she can't be free after all ? I think behind the bars again is even worse for her than death.

This ending was alright even if kinda cliche, as for the rest of the manga, I dunno, I feel like there were some things I didn't read properly or I missed some of the messages it was trying to convey. I think I will need to reread this more slowly in the future. As for now it's a 7/10, I liked it especially the art.

Well she did kill a lot of people. No matter the circumstances her actions killed thousands if not millions. I'm pretty sure Japan isn't going to just ignore that.

Sure she could bust out if she wanted to, but then she can live as a fugitive. At least she gets to stay alive and spend time with the person she loves. That's more than a lot of characters got out of this story.

I saw a picture of Shiro last night and now I'm done with the manga. And in fact I was so interested I made an account here just to post this. Despite the Necro I still do want to hear if anyone still have anything left unsaid about this manga.

So first this part I do feel is a bit unfortunate. But you have to consider this is a really dark manga. The author gave it a sushine everywhere kind of ending, which didn't quite feel right. Though I personally love a happy ending it would just seem too out of character for the author to end completely perfect.

Also having Shiro in prison isn't as bad as it may seem. A big part of her misfortune was her loneliness, but now that they're both alive and conscious they will no doubt spend a lot of their time together even if it's within bars.

Moreover if you really want to go nuts on this, Crow still have his power, breaking her out of that prison will be easier than teaching Shiro how to cook.

So overall prison or not, it's pretty much a completely happy ending, since every possible good thing that can happen happened, while the least significant bad thing happened that can easily be "fixed" in an limitless number of ways.

Personally i give it a 10/10. I love cute crazy chicks. Minatsuki is also extremely loveable.

Woot I feel much better about the prison thing now that I can verbalize it in words. I am a sucker for happy endings.

And there we go, finished vol. 13, it was short yet entertaining journey, I think the ending is so good considering how dark the series is, I was hopping Ganta doesn't kill Shiro and that what happened, that was traumatizing me throughout the entire series, it was just wrong if they try to actually kill each other, we got that, and lots of cool stuff like what's happening with the other deadmen, their daily routine. Ganta was so cheerful unlike him, he used to be sad all the time, yet he looks in good shape, I was afraid he would not get used to normal life giving the fact his life turned upside down.

I'll give this series 7 out of 10 since it is really short and felt like a rush, maybe because I read it in 3 days, I should've slowed down a little bit, I was planning on reading a vol. per day, I read like 6 today lol, We don't have lots of characters, only the main 2 characters; Ganta and Shiro, I couldn't feel the presence of the other characters apart from Crow, the rest were just unimportant to me, like seriously we only got to see some of their backstories near the end.

Looking forward to Kataoka Jinsei's next Manga.

This is one of the many examples of how to end a series right. It tied up all lose ends while give the characters a content ending without it feeling mushy or cheesy. My only question is how did shiro end up getting so badly hurt? And how is Ganta not as badly hurt as she is? Idk it could be right in front of me but I just can't figure it out

Just finished this. It was a great Manga, the ending I needed some time to think about, but I think its a good one. I liked seeing everyone, even though Crow was really the only character to make an impression besides Toto and his "sister".

What I haven't seen on this thread is the fact that Ganta lost is branch of sin, since he was the "cure" I can only assume Shiro did too, maybe that is why she is in the Coma. She was kind of grown around the nanomachines and their abilities. So I guess if you take them away her regeneration wouldn't work, and the battle with Ganta damaged both of them.

It is open ended, which leaves room for the imagination which is always ... a catch 22. I want to know more, but I think if they gave more it would have ruined the series.

Poor Shiro got the bad end of the stick. But it's probably the best way the manga could have ended at that point. There was no way Shiro could just get away with everything like nothing happened, and there was no way Ganta would have let that happen either. They both have to share their burden forever. But Shiro is still the most unfortunate one. The ending is drawn so that we won't think too much of the unfortunate implications of this setting, but it's ok, nobody was expecting a happy ending anyway; it just wouldn't have fit.

It's pretty much a happy ending in all respects. The prison is something that can be easily fixed: they're super-humans, after all.

It's a story of guilt and redemption, breaking out of prison would make absolutely no sense for Shiro; as I said Ganta wouldn't let it happen.

Damn, what an ending, Shiro is in prison (in a coma? - probably sedated)
It was nice seeing how everyone moved on after the events, Minatsuki going to school :D

Deadman Wonderland was actually the reason I started reading manga as I was really unsatisfied with how the anime just ended (which is fair considering the sales)
It wasn't the clearest on some points as we didn't know a few things untill later on but it was a really good story.
The fights were amazing, the gore was just right, I could feel the relationship between Shiro and Ganta just by reading.

So I'm guessing Shiro woke up from the coma, probably just to tease an open ending.

Shiro is one of my favourite characters still, started from the anime and still favourite after the manga.

9/10

Thought I'd never say this, but for once I think I enjoyed the anime more than the manga. I like how more detailed the manga got but I enjoyed the ride with the anime.

I really wanted both of the to die, it just made sense that way, instead of being cliché.

So good to see the other characters found themselves once again.

Deadman Wonderland still has to be one of my top favorite mangas.

The author is brilliant, Smokin' Parade is even more of a thrill read.

The one thing I hated was the fact that even while leaving Shiro and Ganta's ending open and ambiguous (which is bad enough, being such an overused and terrible way to end a story to begin with) They had to throw in the fact that there are bars on her room's window without explaining anything more! Meaning that it could very well be that she may not actually be free now. Even though it's probably just a precaution because of the fact that she hasn't been awake yet and they don't know how she'll react and such.. But still, did they really have to show that if they were going to leave it open?

The only thing worse is that people seem ok with this because of "everything she's done." It's like, WTF? did you people even read the same story as I did? And we're talking about a little girl here, a child!

The only person who needs to be forgiven, and arguably maybe should be.. Is Ganta's mother. She was basically "saved" from the dark side through all that happened. She started out as pretty much a full on monster like Hagire, but gained back her humanity and conscience because of this.. starting with giving birth to her child and ending with Shiro. Though it is kind of hard for me to forgive her for doing that to her son (and shiro), by killing herself, even if it was to try to help Shiro. I always feel that way when this type of issue/story point comes up. mothers killing themselves, even for what seem like good reasons. (But at least it's not as bad or as extreme as shinji ikari's mother's "plan"... just wtf at that.. :'( *puke* )

Still can't get over that girl (which I totally forgot her name's death) but I still feel the best way to end was a double kill. I mean all the things ''Shirou'' did, all the suffering she brought upon the other characters and Ganta's friends death can't be forgiven by just being in a coma then opening your eyes in the last page, and since it was Ganta's fault to begin with that all these things happened, it would make sense that he die with her, that way they can be together and atone for their sins.

It can easily be forgiven, and has been pretty clearly, with everything that's happened. And if you really want to get into it, there's nothing that either needs to be forgiven for. A death ending for either or both of them wouldn't only have been horrible and stupid, but pointless as well.

Wait, what is Ganta's fault?? O_o

Get away,... get away with WHAT?! She was a small child, raised from infancy as a LAB EXPERIMENT! Her whole life has been nothing but pain worse than what most people would call sever torture, more than it would take to kill a normal person! She had no family, lost her only friend, as well as the woman who was like a mother to her.. At one point SHE WAS DISSECTED piece by piece while FULLY CONSCIOUS! Plus, on top of all that, and the only thing that really matters here, she was and still IS a child! Now to be fair, it's probably only temporary though. As for Ganta "not letting her get away" I have to ask again, get away with what? I really don't think he would give a shit anyway at this point. (not with her and everything he knows now at the very least)

And you know.. I don't see people saying this about all the other chars that "got away." pretty much everyone had blood on their hands here.

A happy ending is pretty much the only thing that fit here.. With the horrors they all went through..

Calling something cliché is such an overused thing. Not to mention cliché =/= makes less sense. Nor is a happy ending such in the first place! (people don't even understand the term) I mean, I can't even... why would anyone want an ending like that ever anyway, let alone in a series like this.. with what all the chars went through!

Ganta gave a shit, actually. He said it himself, he said that he completely understood what she went through, and that he basically loves her, but still can't forgive her for what she did, and can't forgive himself at the same time. We know that she is a sympathetic character who didn't deserve any of this, but she still has to face her responsibilities. For example, would a parent of a child she killed be just fine with her being free? The idea here for me is that, no matter what your circumstances are, you still own your actions and choices, and you have to live with their consequences.

While I am a huge fan of happy endings, I am an even bigger fan of endings that fit with the overall theme of the story, whether they're tragic or not. And this one did.

It's been a while since I've read such a nice manga.

I didn't agree with all of the events that happened, but the story had me on the edge of my seat, and I enjoyed reading Ganta and Shiro's story. Lovely character development. Good resolution of the plot, and a satisfying ending.

Glad to have read this.
I have to remember to remember these:

"There's no shame in falling down... true shame is to not stand up again!"

"Aah? Of course I won't miss!"

"My blood tastes like Iron."

"Run through the tape in life! Never give up! Run through the tape!"

Ganta would've wanted Shiro to see the sun, she's been stuck in a cell her whole life, it would absolutely make sense, and I'm sure that's the eventual outcome if she isn't released within a year or so. It's pretty much a happy ending in all respects.

Gotta admit, that wasn't a satisfying ending to me. Expected something more bitter-sweet. Not that I would be instantly in love with it, if everyone just died, but the way it ended left no real impression on me :x

Overall it was an okay read, nothing special. Easily the best thing about this manga is the artstyle - it's beautiful, character-designs are great (not counting MC, for some weird reason he looks like shit), and the volume covers/color pages inside are a real piece of art. Shiro is just hnnng~, such a cutie!

Sadly, the plot was like from any other mediocre shounen, just filled with more blood, gore, and weird, edgy themes. Nothing impactful or meaningful. The setting itself was hard to accept as "possible", but that's one thing - after the last chapter I'm supposed to believe that within just a few years people started doubting what DW's real purpose was, or that they forgot it was even a thing? Sure xD There are SOME limits to my suspension of disbelief, even in sci-fi manga like this one.

I guess reading it wasn't a waste of time or anything, I just wish I enjoyed it a bit more. Still, I totally love Shiro, she deserves better story! 6/10

So we get a happy ending. Not that I complain as I am a fan of happy endings. But this makes their battle with all the build up pointless. Shiro wanted Ganta to kill her, but she was attacking him too. That didn't make sense.
There were way too many over the top characters and I could not take some of them seriously. This was a shounen series with most of the clichés executed poorly. The blood is just a bait to make it look like a mature show.
I came to read this due to the anime leaving things off and knew what to expect. The story pretty much goes along the same route as established initially. But I still think anime was better because the action scenes in this manga are hard to follow. The chapters near the end of the manga improved in storytelling and I liked the backstory of Shiro more than - say, Guilty crown's characters. Overall 5/10.
