"Young Ganta’s ordinary life is rent asunder when a monstrous being he calls “the Red Man” slaughters his entire class and all of his friends. Falsely accused of the murders, Ganta’s sentenced to the amusement park of horrors known as Deadman Wonderland, where the condemned battle each other in front of paying audiences. But as ghastly as Deadman Wonderland is on the surface, it’s even worse underneath, as Ganta finds he has powers which are of special interest to the sadists who pull the levers behind the scenes.
The violence, bloodshed, gore, and torment quotient of this show makes for supremely uncomfortable viewing. Matters aren’t helped by the way a disturbing amount of the torment is focused on children."
