Manga Announces Deadman Wonderland For Summer

Manga UK has tweeted the news that the distributor has picked up the horror/action series Deadman Wonderland for a UK release.

Ganta Igarashi is the sole survivor of a brutal massacre that wipes out his entire class at middle school, perpetrated by a blood-soaked figure who implants a strange crystal in Ganta's chest.

Unfortunately, Ganta is both the only survivor and the only witness to the attack. In a rushed trial, he is convicted of the slaughter and sentenced to death.

Ganta is sent to Deadman Wonderland, a privately run prison where the inmates are forced to perform in cruel entertainments for the amusement of the paying public.

If they refuse to participate, they are denied the antidote to the poison being constantly pumped into their bodies by the collars they have to wear.

Ganta must fight for his survival in this twisted carnival of horrors even as he tries to find the man responsible for the deaths of his classmates.

He finds a potential ally in a mysterious albino girl called Shiro who lives inside the prison.

Deadman Wonderland is adapted from the manga by Kazuma Kondou and Jinsei Kataoka, the creators of Eureka Seven.

Manga UK will release the series on DVD and Blu-ray in July 2013.

The show will be 3-discs on DVD with an RRP of £29.99 and on Blu-ray will be 2-discs with an RRP of £34.99.
