5.0 out of 5 stars Creepy Japanese Dystopia 28 Mar 2014
Off to a fantastic start. This is creepy, unsettling, horrific Japanese dystopia at its finest. Add in a paranormal element and everything you could want is here. Deadman Wonderland is a most unique world; an amusement park built on top of a privatized prison, the park is run by the inmates and the death row inmates are especially heinously controlled and made to participate is events (games) which result in life or death. A little like "Hunger Games" only more violent. While futuristic and dystopian the story easily crosses over into horror. Numerous cast members are introduced in this first volume but the focus is on the main two characters, Ganta wrongfully imprisoned on death row for a massacre he did not commit and Shiro, a strange girl with white hair who befriends him. Awesome new series! I love this kind of stuff!

5.0 out of 5 stars This Is One Manga I'm Keeping My Eye On 28 May 2014
DEADMAN WONDERLAND (2007-2013), which ran for 58 chapters, centers on Ganta Igarashi, an middle-school student who had survived a powerful earthquake which destroyed nearly all of Tokyo long ago (which he has no memories of). His peaceful life is ruined when all of his classmates are murdered by a mysterious person known as the Red Man. The only survivor, poor Ganta is wrongfully found guilty and is sentenced to Deadman Wonderland, a private-owned penal facility which is disguised as a tourist attraction.

While serving his sentence, Ganta meets several other inmates that are weird and strange, the most notable being Shiro, an albino girl who claims that Ganta is her friend, and would become his closest ally in this saga. Ganta will have to go to great lengths to clear his name, find out who Red Man is, and the truth about Deadman Wonderland...and it ain't going to be an easy journey for him.

DEADMAN WONDERLAND contains some dark and scary moments that may be unsuitable for the weak-minded or the faint-hearted. But this is one cool manga to read. It was adapted into an anime series three years ago, but it only adapted the first twenty-one chapters in the manga, and I don't think they will be adapting the remaining thirty-seven chapters into animated form. The manga was first published into English by Tokyopop, who only got to released the first five volumes before they went defunct. Happily, Viz Media picked up the rights to DEADMAN WONDERLAND, so hopefully we'll get to see all thirteen volumes in bookstores over the coming years.

DEADMAN WONDERLAND is recommended to all manga readers alike.

5.0 out of 5 stars Welcome to wonderland 12 Aug 2010
By Lawliet
First Review.. here goes:
When I first read Deadman Wonderland it was online and I quickly caught the chapters up to date. I thought it was so good and engaging that it deserved to shine in my shelves at home. So I bought the two first volumes of the manga and I can honestly tell you that I do not regret it.
The book starts of with us meeting a boy named Ganta who seems to live an ordinary life. But that is until a mysterious man appears and kills his whole class. Now Ganta is claimed to have murdered his friends and classmates, and thus the story really begins. He's sent to a public prison-facility called "Deadman Wonderland" where the most dangerous of prisoners in Japan are gathered. There, a brutal game of survival begins, where Ganta must discover the very dark secret hidden deep within the walls of "Deadman Wonderland".
Being a long-time anime and mangafan, I found Deadman Wonderland to really stand out from the rest of the crowd. I think it's because of its originality and high-quality drawings. I would recommend this manga to all of you out there over the age of 15, who likes an action-filled, gory storyline with lots of surprises. If you like series such as AirGear and Tasogare Otome x Amnesia, I think you will enjoy this series just as much as do!
