Stand Alone or Series: 2nd book in the Deadman Wonderland
Rating: 4.5/5 stars
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.
