Deadman Wonderland
Manga: (2007 – Ongoing)
Anime: (April 17, 2011 – July 3, 2011)
OVA: Red Knife Wielder
Maturity: 17+ (note the anime/manga is rather gory)

Deadman Wonderland is a manga series written by Jinsei Kataoka, and illustrated Kazuma Kondou, they also did Eureka Seven. The manga was later turned into a 12 episode anime as well as a 27min OVA.
The story follows a middle school student name Ganta Igarashi who gets blamed for slaughtering is class mates as well as his best friends, while it really was the “red man”. After an unfair trial, Ganta is sentenced to death and is incarcerated to in an old theme park called Deadman’s Wonderland. While doing time, he develops the ability to his own blood as a weapon known as Branches of Sin. He is eventually separated from the normal criminals and moved to where people with the same type of abilities. They are then paired up and forced to fight each other in brutal death matches called Carnival Corpse.  (The OVA outlines the back story of Senji which also appears briefly later in the manga.)

What I like:
-          The story like is original
-          Full of action
-          Plot twists
-          Goes where many anime haven’t

What I don’t like?
-          12 episodes…. You got to be kidding me smh...
-          Anime leaves you wanting more (also give you the WTF feeling)

***What it needs ***
-          A Reboot like the Full Metal Alchemist got. It could have been way better if they went into more detail and in some cases a different direction.  The anime only went about half way through.

***Note most anime that i post are hosted on the Website Anime Shippuuden, which has a lot of popup ads. I recommend using Mozilla Firefox with Ad blocker installed or use another browser with a ad blocker or pop up ad blocker installed. I will be looking around for another site that host animes that you can what for free with less or no ads***

    1. At first I didn't really care for it. Then I watched "Stand alone complex " and now I don't know why I didn't like it.
