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.”

After hunting down Tamaki, the Wretched Egg appears in front of Ganta, and he finally learns that it is Shiro behind the mask. Standing before the court, his heart torn between wanting revenge for his slaughtered classmates and not wanting to hurt the person he still cares for, Ganta’s sentence is reversed. Still on the brink of despair, Ganta decides to put an end to everything, and then…


The group is finally out of Deadman Wonderland. They’re free! And they have no idea how to live a normal life. Some are in normal prison now, and some are trying to get jobs. Ganta is supposed to be in school, but he’s just depressed right now. It is definitely weird seeing them in a normal setting, and depressing to see how badly they fit in.
And then, of course, they make a plan to get back into Deadman Wonderland, because they have to fight the Wretched Egg. And at this point, no one but Ganta knows that Wretched Egg is actually Shiro.
Ugh, I’m so upset about that still. I love Shiro so much, and right now she’s being pushed to the back so her second personality, Wretched Egg, can take over. And all Wretched Egg wants to do is kill, particularly Ganta. And they love each other so much! It's heartbreaking to see them like this.
We meet a new character in this volume, who has a past with Rinichiro (the one leading the Wretched Egg around), which sounds similar to what’s happening with Shiro. We also get a huge revelation about how Deadman Wonderland works, as well as something about Ganta’s mother.
There’s just so much terror happening here, and more to come, of course.
I’m excited for the next one.
