FUNimation Entertainment Brings Deadman Wonderland to DVD in North America writes: "Flower Mound, TX (July 1, 2011) - FUNimation(R) Entertainment today announced that it will distribute the futuristic action anime "Deadman Wonderland" in North America in 2012. In an agreement with Kadokawa Shoten Co., Ltd., FUNimation will have the home entertainment, broadcast, digital and merchandise rights for the 12-episode series ending its Japanese broadcast run this month.

An adaptation of Jinsei Kataoka and Kazuma Kondou's Deadman Wonderland manga, the dark story is set after the destruction of most of Tokyo by an earthquake and centers on Ganta Igarashi, a middle school student framed for the murder of his classmates. Igarashi is sentenced to Deadman Wonderland, a bizarre brutal and bloody privately operated prison that is one part incarceration and one part public spectacle – a thoroughly twisted tourist destination!

The series is animated by Manglobe and directed by Koichi Hatsumi.

FUNimation will stream the series via this year."

No word yet, but if they are smart they'll release it on Blu-ray if they want my money :)

Thank goodness for Funimation. If not we'd still be sharing copied tapes in the US.

Just just hope they bring this to Blu-ray. Such a new series should be a treat to watch in HD.
