Deadman Wonderland - Anime Quick Review


First published at 06:08 UTC on January 19th, 2018.

Accused of killing his entire class #Ganta is sentenced to the death-spectacle prison known as Deadman Wonderland.
After watching the one season of the anime #I looked up some spoilers of the manga. It explains a bit more and has a bit more development #but I stand by my opinion of the anime. Ganta and Shirow's relationship is clumsily cobbled together. As it's important to the show #I can't recommend this one. It had potential #though.

Deadman Wonderland

It can't figure out what kind of anime it wants to be.
It starts out as a grisly gameshow.
Then it's a fighting tournament.
Then it's a prison escape drama.
And there's supernatural powers.
The anime explains little and leaves lots of story threads dangling.
Shirow's a neat annoying character #but her friendship with the protagonist Ganta is written flimsily.

Deadman Wonderland

Seriously #how can she have her run of the entire prison and yet no one seems to recognize her.

'Till next time later.
