MAIN CHARACTERS:

 


GANTA IGARASHI – THE WOODPECKER

Ganta Igarashi is an ordinary high school boy, but that all changes when a mysterious red man flies into his classroom’s window and kills all his classmates and friends. The red man then plants a red diamond into Ganta’s chest. Ganta is framed for the death of his classmates and is sentenced to prison. He is transferred to Deadman Wonderland a privately owned prison which serves as an amusement park where the inmates are the show.
While at Deadman Wonderland, Ganta is faced with many brutal inmates. He meets a cheerful prisoner named Shiro who becomes his friend. Ganta soon finds out that the red diamond planted in him gives him power which is called Branch Of Sin. Ganta’s branch of sin he develops is called The Ganta Gun.

Ganta and Shiro end up in G ward where there are other Deadmen with the Branch of Sin.

Ganta is then put to the test to fight the other Deadmen to the death at the carnival corpse, while trying to escape to prove his innocence.


SHIRO- WRETCHED EGG 
Shiro is a bubbly and clumsy girl that is also an inmate at Deadman Wonderland. She is a childhood friend of Ganta even though he doesn’t remember. As a child she was experimented on by Ganta’s mother Sorae Igarashi and her adopted father Hagire Rinichirō. The experiments were used to heighten a person’s immune system and created the first deadman which is Shiro.

Throughout the series you see her protecting Ganta. She tries to assist in Ganta escaping so he can prove himself innocent.

SPOILER:

Later in the series, we find out that Shiro has a split personality which is called wretched egg. We find out that she has extreme powers and she is the red man that Ganta saw kill his classmates.

Senji is a former police officer. He is the first deadman that Ganta runs into at Deadman Wonderland. He is extremely strong. Renji’s branch of sin is called Crow Claw. He uses his branch of sin during the carnival corpse battles. He later becomes close to Ganta and trains him to use his branch of sin to perfect his Ganta Gun.

YŌ TAKAMI
Takami is an inmate at Deadman Wonderland. He comes off as friendly and nice but he is actually a scheming person. He is a spy in the prison and exchanges information for prison goods. He steals other inmates’ goods when he has the opportunity. He becomes friends with Ganta and heads with him to the G ward. (Spoiler) There he finds out that his younger sister Minatsuki Takami is a deadman.

MY REVIEW
Now I started reading this manga because the anime never got picked up for a second season. (I will not rant😒😒) So I took it upon myself to find out what happens next. OMG, all I can say is why wasn’t this popular is Japan. I mean the story is just amazing in the manga series.
The different characters and the development of the main characters and their growth is just so amazing. I like when you read about a character growing and understanding themselves. There are so many great characters and they all have some kind of crazy personality and emotions. I love that this series takes you back to the character’s pasts to understand why they are mentally insane. Just perfect for me.
The action on the pages pops out, I mean I feel like it’s actually happening when I read this. It keeps you on the edge of your seat.
The plot just perfect and it all makes since. From the past connecting everyone in the future. Just amazing.
I really do recommend reading this manga, especially if you saw the anime and need to know what happens. (If you haven’t watched the anime I say please do so hahah)

Thanks for reading 🤓🤓🤓

    I too read the manga, after it became apparent that they wouldn’t be animating anymore episodes. The series isn’t that long so it is a shame that they left the anime unfinished. Deadman Wonderland has great action and some surprising twists. Squeamish readers may want to avoid it though because the penalty for losing a fight can be gory.

    I really wished they had finished the story in the anime. I was really into the series and then it just stopped. Still, I haven’t felt the need to pick up the manga – I’m not huge on reading manga.

    I see this everywhere in the uk, but nobody talks about it =/ which is very strange, i even asked a freind of mine if he was interested and he said “not really”. to me it looks like a manga which is very good but the anime adaption wont have the same feeling (mind you though i have not read or seen it, so it might be a excellent manga along with an excellent anime)
