    Supernatural prison

    Genre: Supernatural, Action, Drama Length: 12 episodes + OVA "Ganta is the only survivor after a mysterious man in red slaughters a classroom full of teenagers. He's framed for the carnage, sentenced to die, and locked away in the most twisted prison ever built: Deadman Wonderland. And then it gets worse. At Deadman Wonderland, convicts are forced into brutal deathmatches for the amusement of the masses, the cheers of the crowd drowning out the screams of the dismembered. Even when Ganta befriends Shiro, an unusual female inmate, his dark fate crushes all hope – until he discovers the strange ability to wield his spilled blood as a weapon. Ganta learns his new skill might be related to the murderous man in red and uncovers disturbing secrets that could expose those who stole his freedom. He's determined to see justice served – but first he'll have to fight for his life in a prison that holds a million ways to die." Deadman Wonderland is a decent series that gained attention in America after Cartoon Network aired it on the Toonami animation block when it was reincarnated back in 2012. I caught the first 2 episodes, but never got around to watching the rest. The series is filled to the brim with blood, gore, and action. The English dialogue is pretty racy as well. It does an excellent job with the shock factor. You just know someone is about to die, but it can be a little hard to predict how it's going to happen. Sadly, the series is quite rushed and a ton of knowledge is never made known. There also isn't really a true ending. Red Man remains a mystery, sort of. What relation does Shiro and Ganta have? Don't want to spoil any of the ending, but it pops up just as many questions and doesn't really answer anything. It leave tons of room for a 2nd season, but I haven't seen anything in the works, yet. I enjoyed the series overall even with the rushed ending and lingering questions. My brother was also a fan and admitted that he was a little confused with the entire thing. This is a great value on a pretty good series. Pick it up!

    Not the whole story

    This is censored but it's the only version available to buy in the U.S. It is as uncensored as Japan was able to allow it to be. I don't care to give a review of the show itself because that's not what the review asks for but please know if you've never seen this before, it is not the whole story. It will seem confusing. Unfortunately they are not making anymore seasons as far as I know so this is it. If you want to understand, you NEED to read the entire manga. The show leaves off around volume 4 of the manga. The first time I watched this when it was on toonami I didn't understand it. But then I read the manga and low and behold, it all makes sense. If you love it as much as I do, read the manga. It's worth it and it goes deeper into Shiro's back story. Which is pretty much what this is all about.

    It's really sad this show didn't do well in Japan so there might have been more episodes because it's really good, violent, engaging, and beautifully animated, deadman wonderland is a must have for anime fans.

    Deadman Wonderland is really good. It is one of the bloddiest and most violent anime series ever. It has some pretty strong language, but not as strong as the language in the Black Lagoon series.
