Prison. It's a place that, as a child, you were told was full of the bad people. However, while that statement is correct, it's also wrong. The chances of someone being innocent is 4%. That might not seem like much but it is estimated that 1,320 defendants executed since 1977 were innocent. So that would mean that Deadman Wonderland in Cell Block G, most of them did nothing wrong.
One of those people are who innocent is Igarashi, Ganta. Ganta is one of these Deadmen who have the ability to control their blood as "another limb". He uses this power to survive in
this hell hole amusement park. It's violence and blood fill this show head to toe. It seems to just try to appeal to those "Edge Lords" of anime.
Story. Since the show is only 12 episodes long and we probably (80% sure) won't get Season 2, as it didn't do that well in Japan, it wouldn't be able to expand as much as it most likely wanted to. Since the anime covered 20 chapters and the manga is 45 chapters. We only saw the first arc. Afterwards we are still left with many questions like "What is the Mother Goose System?" and "What IS Shiro?".
Art. The Art is covered with a lot of blood and violence. I'm not saying the blood isn't well-drawn. It's just a bit over the top. Other than that, I don't really have any other criticisms about the art.
Sound. The OST (Original SoundTrack) is jam packed to the brim with many different songs. Every time you hear a song it's probably the first time you've heard it. The opening song isn't really to my tastes but I can still appreciate the hard work and dedication it took to create the OST.
Ganta's a bit of a wimp. He's whinny (tolerable though) and even though he does grow out of that phase, Shiro is still best grill. Talking of Shiro, Ganta does care for Shiro and needs her to protect him sometimes.
Shiro is REALLY interesting. She is funny, important and downright creepy when she sings the lullaby. She wan't to protect Ganta as he is Shiro's friend.
My enjoyment of the show was high. It did dip down every now and then but other than that, It kept a smile on my face as I witnessed murder. How lovely.
