First impressions – Deadman Wonderland

20 Apr

What is this Anime about?
That was not entirely clear in the first episode. From what I could gather (between all the gore, blood, and violance) is that Deadman Wonderland is a prison/jail/amusement park. The facility is located in what was Tokyo (most of it was taken out in an earthquake ten years ago) and the amusement park side is built, staffed, and basically run by the prisoners. The goal of this facility is to try and bring revenue and people back in to Tokyo. This is where we as the viewer come in. There is a class that is going to take a trip up there and Igarashi Ganta is watching a little informational clip about the park. when his friends come in he puts it away and talks with them about how they should have gone over seas for their class trip. When the bell for class rings Igarashi Ganta starts hearing a song that he belived he had hear before but could not place it. he looks to the window to find the source of the song and sees a man hovering (there in the third floor) just outside. everyone else in the class realises and this is about the time all hell breaks loose. Things happen and everyone in the class ends up dieing with the exception of Igarashi Ganta. when he comes to at the hospital he is greeted by cops and charged with the mass murder of his class. After going through a trial he is sent to Deadman Wonderland and sentenced to death. I’m going to stop here because I don’t want to ruin the entire episode. ^_^

OP:(no animation yet…will update when it comes out)


Where is it heading?
to a place that is pure violence…or at least i hope so ^_^

My opinion starting out
I fell in love with this the moment people started dieing ^_^ I love crazy, violent anime and you can bet that I will be following this to the end.

Rating so far
While yes crazy violent anime has been done and super power-esc anime have been done this seemed refreshing and different for some reason so I am giving it a 4 out of 5.
(this score is based on how original the anime is starting, 1 means that is is way to over played, 3 means that it has some originality to it but it’s sticking to what is safe. 5 means that the anime is starting off with a completely original idea. )

So what do you think? The only way to make these posts better is if you tell us what we can improve upon so please leave a comment to help us get better (^。^)
