Goodreads Synopsis:

Framed for the brutal murders of his classmates by the mysterious Red Man, middle school student Ganta Igarashi finds himself sentenced to death and sent to the bizarre and fatal theme park/prison that has risen from the ruins of the Great Tokyo Earthquake—a hell on earth known as “Deadman Wonderland.”

Despite the loss of their leader, Scar Chain manages to defeat the Undertakers and escape, but Ganta and Shiro stay to fight on. Tamaki, the insane mastermind of Deadman Wonderland, initiates his next plan—the development and deployment of the Ninben, artificially created Deadmen, and Ganta’s friend Azami is one of his first test subjects!


So apparently they’re all still inside the prison, for some reason? I’m not really sure why? Because I thought they were getting out? What's wrong with them?
And then the prison spins the truth around to make the deadmen look horrible (of course, though not actually hard to do), and then makes the fights even more horrible and publicized.
Everything’s just horrible in this series. It's just terrible. I've resigned myself to it.
It’s revealed that Ganta is even more powerful than everyone realized, of course. And then he’s a huge jerk to Shiro for no reason, isolating himself even more, and now I really hate him. Ganta’s just undeserving of Shiro’s affection.
Everything is just going bad now, for everyone. (Was it ever going good?) All the deadmen are screwed. Ganta is a jerk and I’m not surprised that everyone turned on him, but I have no idea what he’s going to do next. I feel bad for Shiro, but don’t know how her revealing is going to go. 
The next one should be horrible in a good-ish way, I’m sure, like always.
