Review by

Didn't live up to my expectations of Vol. 1 but still good. This volume closes in on Ganta and the white haired girl as they find out the one who killed Ganta's classmates is hidden in the prison somewhere. Rather than finding him, they meet someone else and Ganta learns more about the "deadmen" and what is going on inside the prison. I think this volume focused in on the main characters too soon, as I felt like I hadn't got a handle on the environment yet. The amusement park was hardly mentioned and none of the other inmates were involved in the story. I would have preferred getting to know the society better before closing in on the politics of the plot. However, this is still an awesome dystopian theme and I'm hoping the third volume will pull everything together better for me. I love the characters!

Review by

This is the second book in the Deadman Wonderland. I absolutely loved it! These books are so strange and just so intriguing. Ganta is recovering from the ordeals of book 1. When he finds out the Red Man is kept in Ward G, he begs Shiro to take him there. While in the mysterious Ward G Ganta finds out the true reason this place is called Deadman Wonderland. As a results of an impromtu battle in Ward G, Ganta finds himself fighting in the Carnival of Corpses.In this book Ganta starts to unravel the secrets of Deadman Wonderland, including what/who is really kept in Ward G. We also learn more about Shiro and get to see her truly kick butt in some scenes.I really loved all the interesting revelations in this story. There is a lot of dark humor in here as well which I really enjoyed. There is also a ton of action, which was well done and fun to read about.These mangas are very well drawn as well. My only complaint is that this manga suffers from giant-boob syndrome (all the women in here have absolutely ginormous breasts that are completely improbable).Overall an incredibly well done horror-action-dystopian themed manga. I really loved it and can’t wait to read the next one in the series. This is a very gory and somewhat disturbing manga, that has some fascinating characters and a really interesting setting. I would recommend to those who like action-packed manga with a horror/dystopian theme to it.
