What is it about?
It looked like it would be a normal day for Ganta Igarashi and his classmates—they were preparing to go on a class field trip to a certain prison amusement park called Deadman Wonderland, where the convicts perform dangerous acts for the onlookers’ amusement. However, Ganta’s life is quickly turned upside down when his whole class gets massacred by a mysterious man in red. Framed for the incident and sentenced to death, Ganta is sent to the very jail he was supposed to visit.
But Ganta’s nightmare is only just beginning.
The young protagonist is thrown into a world of sadistic inmates and enigmatic powers, to live in constant fear of the lethal collar placed around his neck that is slowed only by winning in the prison’s deathly games. Ganta must bet his life to survive in a ruthless place where it isn’t always easy to tell friend from foe, all while trying to find the mysterious “Red Man” and clear his name, in Deadman Wonderland.
What did I think about it?
You have read the summary but still don’t understand what it is about? Don’t worry about it! I have seen it and I still don’t understand. This anime is all over the place. Starts at a high school, goes to some kind of weird murder prison where you have to eat candy to survive, but then it gets even weirder because they can make weapons out of blood???
This was just not my thing. There was too much going on at the same time. For me the story didn’t make any sense. I would have like to see the whole prison story, that sounded good, but the whole dead games things with supernatural weapons was too much. Also the art wasn’t my thing, I didn’t like the drawings that much so that didn’t help either.
If you want to be completely confused you should watch this one, otherwise there are far better anime.
