Welcome again to Otaku Friday. This week we bring you Deadman Wonderland! (Cue Rock Music Here!) okay now that your all set lets get started with today's deadly sin Deadman Wonderland.
So, What's It About?!
A massive anomaly ravaged Japan's mainland and destroyed most of Tokyo, sinking three-quarters of the city into the ocean. Ten years later, the story shifts to Ganta Igarashi, a seemingly ordinary student attending Nagano Prefecture's middle school. As an escapee, a survivor of the great earthquake, Ganta has no memories of the tragedy and has lived a normal life. This all changes when a strange person covered in blood and crimson armor floats through his classroom windows. Grinning madly, the 'Red Man' massacres Ganta's entire class but instead of killing him, embeds a red crystal shard in Ganta's chest. Within days of the massacre, Ganta is subjected to a kangaroo court as a suspect and is sentenced to death at Deadman Wonderland, a prison that doubles as a theme park.
* This story is fantastic, a middle school student blamed for the massacre of an entire class then sentenced to a crazy facility that uses criminals as scapegoats in a family theme park... if this doesn't already catch your attention well I have nothing more to say.
I watched the anime and read the manga and this is really just so amazing, Deadman Wonderland makes you experience a roller-coaster of emotions and just makes you want to stay all day at home and read! The story was so well written the characters were all so fascinating and different there was not one character that didn't have a kick ass backstory! The art was also enchanting and gory that I stayed minutes taking in it all in. Deadman Wonderland is truly great forever a favorite. As for the manga I am a bit disappointed many main characters from the manga where missing due to the 13 episode count and really had no closure. If you really want to enjoy Deadman Wonderland to its full potential read the manga you wont regret it.
