RightStuf Synopsis:

The residents of G Ward have won their battle with the Ko Unit, but have been badly injured by the intense fighting. Meanwhile, Ganta gathers what strength he has left and joins Makina. Together they head for the top level of Deadman Wonderland to attempt to deliver the Endae Faust - the Final Fist - that will put an end to the insane plans of promoter Tamaki. But what they find waiting for them may lead to even more despair...
Story by Jinsei Kataoka and Art by Kazuma Kondou.


There’s a big showdown in this volume, leading to an end of one arc and a start of another. The group is possibly, maybe actually out of the prison/amusement park? I think it’s true this time? Only there are a couple more deaths, including one that makes this possible. But then Shiro’s other side is revealed to Ganta.
Shiro has another personality, the one that started all this I think. And it’s terrible, because it’s so obvious the Shiro we all (read: I, that I) love isn’t in there right now. And it’s crushing, after the last volume, because of her relationship with Ganta, to see that she’s the one who ruined him.
It’s clearly not over yet, there’s more horror to come. Only some of it might be in the real world now. Ugh, I’m so excited and so dreading what comes next.
