Toonami's Return: Deadman Wonderland First Impressions

DualShock Nexus: It's been 10 years since Toonami aired, and as we matured, so did the shows in the new lineup. Deadman Wonderland is here and I'm going to be giving you my first impressions. Before we begin, let's just say my jaw dropped.

I'm glad this guy is enjoying Deadman Wonderland, but he's a little late to the party.

WillGuitarGuy1971d ago

I know I'm a couple years late, but If it wasn't for Toonami's return I would've never seen this show. :)

Tuxedo_Mask1971d ago

I'm glad they chose to air it then. Maybe if it gains enough popularity through Toonami they'll make a second season.


it's impossible for a 2nd season the way they did the show, many key characters were taken out for some odd reason since they imply a lot of supporting changes in ganta. the only way it's to do a re-do for it to make more sense and follow the manga story line perfectly.

Treezy5041971d ago

I'm a little late as well, but isn't this the first time they air the English dub?

Tuxedo_Mask1971d ago

Yeah, but you could have watched the subbed version awhile back on Crunchyroll. I think it isn't available anymore though, so it was a good decision for Toonami to air it. Although since I first watched the subbed version I prefer it over the dubbed.

Treezy5041971d ago

@Tuxedo Ahhh thanks man and I completely understand why you would prefer the original. It is a very captivating story though. Do you know if the Manga is translated in English? I think I'll pick it up after it ends on Toonami.

wishingW3L1971d ago (Edited 1971d ago )

the only way to explain the story of this anime is by saying that it is "weird" because that's what it is.

Wonderland is a prison that harbor all the most dangerous criminals. But how dangerous are the criminals in that world? You already seen the first episode, Gunta killed all his classmates and that's what got him in there. That's how bad the crime has to be for you to end up in that prison.

But Wonderland is more than just a prison, there are dangerous secrets behind it all. And the way they deal with the inmates (the special ones) is quite disturbing. Soon Gunta will discover things about himself and some really crazy stuff will happen.

The story is no masterpiece nor one of the best in the last few years but is still a good one. And the action is gooooooddd (and disturbing).

Since Funimation picked up the license, they got the simulcast rights as well, so all twelve episodes are still available to watch subbed on both their website and Hulu.


i just have a little rant about the show. why couldn't they just follow what was on the manga to begin with instead of taking out characters that make a change on the main guy. no wonder the show got low sells because of that.

Same as WillGuitarGuy and Treezy.

A friend of mine saw it a long while ago and I never did get around to it... Liked what I saw though and I intend to keep up with it.

I loved then voice actor I feel like ive martured as a. Anime lover. And. An I already seen the. Sub. Version it just gets better. And I love tom

koga881971d ago

I can't possibly take the main character's voice actor seriously. He's the same guy who voiced Tomoki from Heaven's Lost Property. Wouldn't be too much of an issue if his voice was even slightly different. So sounds like a sad and dramatic Tomoki. I kept waiting for a big breasted angel to fly in and give him some wishes.

WillGuitarGuy1971d ago

What size? G?

(See what I did there? I...I ha...ha...I'll stop now)

Lord_Sloth1971d ago

And Vash The Stampede and Nero from DMC are voiced by a Power Ranger. His voice isn't different either and I can take him seriously.

slaton241971d ago

who is also ichigo from bleach

RockmanII71970d ago

and Lelouch from Code Geass

Shadonic1971d ago

Tengan toppa gurren laggen would of bolted toonami into Cartoon natwork until the end of time.

Deadpool6161971d ago (Edited 1971d ago )

Gurren Laggen...that show is something a good way. The new Toonami is working with limited funding right now. So once it picks up, they'll add more. :)

Tony-Red-Grave1971d ago (Edited 1971d ago )

i personally hope they add gundam00. That and gurren laggen is what had me watching anime again on sci fi

edit: grammer nazi fixed me
