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.”

Ganta and Senji head deep inside Deadman Wonderland to locate the “chorus blocks,” which are the key to unraveling Wretched Egg’s mystery. However, Toto Sakagami appears, and Ganta is captured trying to protect Senji. Meanwhile, Makina discovers Ganta’s mother’s diary, which contains Ganta and Shiro’s shocking past!


How can this series be so cruel to me, every single time? How? Why? It just hurts so much every time.
Toto captures Ganta, and we see what he’s really planning. What he wants to do with Ganta. And from that, we get to see what really happened with Ganta and Shiro as kids. And it’s terrible.
Poor, poor Shiro. Toto is behind it all, and he’s horrible. Ganta’s mother is the reason, but she at least felt bad and wanted to stop. It’s just terrible what they did to Shiro, what she has to experience, and it’s no surprise she is the way she is because of it, with two personalities. But it also shows Ganta what really happened, what he saw, and why he forgot her.
The cliffhanger has me excited, and I can’t wait to see how this series ends. I expect more deaths, or at least more violence. It was terrible and graphic and gross in this volume. They’re terrible to each other. And I just want Shiro to have a happy ending at this point.
