Hey guys! So today’s post is going to be the first anime I’m reviewing! How cool is that?! Since it is the first post in this new section, I’ve decided to talk about Deadman Wonderland, the anime I’ve recently viewed and was recommended by my boyfriend.
What is it about?
Ganta, the sole survivor of the brutal murder of his entire class, is framed and ends up falsely convicted for it. During the massacre, the real killer embeds a red crystal in him.
Ganta is sent to a privately owned prison which has a rather different and perverted take on incarceration. It entertains the masses by performing dangerous games in exchange for privileges.
Every inmate he encounters has their own goals, survival being the main one, and it is now up to him to survive this and maybe even prove his innocence.
I won’t spoil the story, since it is important to find everything out in the end, otherwise there wouldn’t be this part of mystery that keeps you wondering WHY? and HOW? or WHO? most of the time.
I love the evolution of the characters as the story goes on. Ganta enters the prison scared to death and traumatised by the recent events that sent him there. You can see he is innocent from the first chapter, and that makes you see him still as a little boy. I mean… 14 years old and he enters that prison… Damn…
By the end of the story, you can see how tough he has become, how many things he has learned and you can still see his values and motivations, which make him a credible character.
We then have Shiro, the lovely girl that keeps yelling Ganta! every time she sees him and protects him almost in an innocent way.
I won’t be telling you anything else about her! As you will see that she becomes an intriguing character, so you’ll want to find out about her on your own.
That’s it for today! Hopefully this post motivates you to watch this anime if you haven’t watched it yet!
See you in the next post!
