Deadman Wonderland is a Japanese anime series that was first broadcasted in 2011. It was produced by the Japanese animation studio Manglobe and is based on the manga series of the same name, written by Jinsei Kataoka and illustrated by Kazuma Kondou. The anime is licensed for distribution in North America by the anime licensing company FUNimation, and it features the voice talents of Monica Rial, Romi Park, and Greg Ayres.

The story of Deadman Wonderland is set in the near future, after a massive earthquake has destroyed most of Tokyo and has left it submerged underwater. The disaster created a new prison called Deadman Wonderland, a facility that is both a tourist attraction and a place where prisoners are forced to fight for their survival. The prison is run by an organization called the Public Safety Bureau, and they use the prisoners' blood as a commodity to power their machines and to conduct experiments.

The main character of the show is Ganta Igarashi, a young boy who is falsely accused of murdering his entire classroom, and he is sent to Deadman Wonderland to serve a life sentence. Ganta is an innocent and kind-hearted person who struggles to survive in the prison and also to clear his name. He soon discovers that he possesses a strange power that allows him to control his own blood and to use it as a weapon. This ability is known as the Branch of Sin, and it is shared by other inmates in the prison. The Branch of Sin users are forced to fight in brutal gladiator-style battles against each other, in front of an audience of tourists who watch the fights for entertainment.

As Ganta navigates through the dangerous life in the prison, he learns more about the dark secrets of Deadman Wonderland and the true nature of the Branch of Sin. He meets other inmates who become his friends and allies, such as Shiro, a strange and enigmatic girl who seems to have a special connection to Ganta. Shiro is also known as the Wretched Egg, a powerful and terrifying Branch of Sin user who is feared by everyone in the prison.

The story of Deadman Wonderland is intense and violent, with lots of action and suspense. The show explores themes of justice, corruption, and the meaning of freedom. The characters are well developed and complex, with their own motivations and backstories. The animation is stunning, with vivid colors and detailed character designs. The soundtrack is also impressive, with a mix of rock and electronic music that fits the tone of the show perfectly.

The voice acting in Deadman Wonderland is top-notch, with each actor bringing nuance and emotion to their respective characters. Monica Rial portrays Shiro with a perfect balance of innocence and madness, while Romi Park captures the brooding intensity of Ganta. Greg Ayres adds humor and levity to the show as the flamboyant Branch of Sin user, Nagi Kengamine.

Overall, Deadman Wonderland is a thrilling anime series with a gripping plot and memorable characters. It is a must-watch for fans of action and suspense, and it will keep you on the edge of your seat until the very end. While it is not for the faint of heart, those who are willing to brave the violence will be rewarded with an unforgettable story that challenges their perceptions of justice and freedom.

Deadman Wonderland is a series that is currently running and has 1 seasons (13 episodes). The series first aired on April 17, 2011.
