Deadman Wonderland Ep 2: Sweet Bean Bread~!

I am rather surprised; while this show can be considered ‘gory’ to some people, it is actually quite light on the gore level if I do say so myself.

That and it is only the second episode… and thank whatever is watching over me that my school never had marathons like that O_O

*being held back by inner sanity from revealing spoilers*

The main plot behind this episode is that Ganta must endure a ‘Dog Race’ of sorts in order to earn cast points -currency in the prison for prisoners- to purchase a candy.

What is a candy?

I’m glad you asked there Billy boy: a candy is a small dosage of an antidote death row prisoners must take every 3 days in order to stay alive.

What happens if they don’t?

Well, Billy; if they go three days without eating a candy a poison, which is slowly being injected into them, will finally be too much for the body to take and kill them. That’s why this ‘candy’ is an antidote.

But why do they gotta take the candy?

This is death row Billy, logic is not needed here! *whacks Billy*

SHE IS SOOOOOO CUTE *noms on her face of sweet cuteness*

*ahem* anyways, Ganta ends up joining in the dog race along with his friend from last episode, Shirou, ignoring the threats that he was being given by the supposed ‘champion’ of the dog race and lo an behold; PEOPLE ARE DYING. The hurdles which they must overcome are rather gruesome and downright inhumane if this were not an anime.

Hmmm really? I thought the blood would of at least told us that much... and their mangled bodies

We see that Ganta is able to over come them, all with the help of Shirou, who prevents him from dying every step of the way… however, the ‘champion’ has also managed to survive aswell.

It is down to the last hurdle, a game of keep away until the timer runs out; and the timers are platforms which will disappear under your feet and you will fall down to your very spiky and I’m quite sure, painful, death.

*stares* I know what you really are

For the majority of the time Ganta has the ball, but at some point loses it with it being taken by Shirou. The champion also goes after the ball/ kill Ganta so that he won’t get the ball but the floor disappears underneath him; thus resulting in his skewery death.

OH COME ON! YOU TOTALLY COULD HAVE CAUGHT BOTH OF THEM!

Now Ganta has two options; get the ball and win so that he can get the points for the candy, or save a falling to her spiky death Shirou. Personally, I would want the money to save my ass, but Ganta is a nice guy and decides to save Shirou instead; accepting the fact that he is going to die tomorrow.

I hope your funeral procession is a pretty one with sunshine, sparkles and rainbows on fire…

RAINBOWS ARE ON FIAH BECAUSE YOU ARE SOOOOO ADORABLE!!!

PLOT

NO THIS DOES NOT MEAN THAT I AM DISLIKING THE SERIES; IT IS STILL BADASS

BUT IT IS SLOW!!

It is staying rather true to the manga if I had to say, but for me, I like animes that have a quick plot; it does in the sense that we at least know the two basic ideas in the series – prove innocence and get candy so I don’t die- but I just wish it would go just a tiny bit faster.

And the gore.

Where is the gore people?

I was expecting OCEANS of blood and guts here and all I’m getting is minute puddles here and there *sigh* I hate censorship thingies; what time does this series actually air at in Japan, don’t tell me when the little kiddies are still awake. *headdesks*

It better get bloody

I want blood

    I believe this was bloody enough (The literal way). If this was more bloodier ( a word I made), then I believe this will be kind of scary since humans do not have a lot of blood in them. P.S. Japanese kids LOVE blood

      I get what you are saying about there being realistic amounts of blood, but in comparison to the manga, this is literally just a puddle ._. I know Japanese kids love blood (I loved blood too as a child X3), but there are still censorship laws depending on what time an anime airs at during the day in Japan; the later at night it gets, the more blood there will be/ more graphic material. This is also why I am waiting for the episodes to continue on, when the material gets more intense; hopefully then there will be lots of blood (and not just blood, but entrails too X3 (don’t judge me oAo;;; ))

      MAKING UP YOUR OWN WORDS IS AWESOME *thumbs up*
