My Thoughts:

I give Deadman Wonderland (Essentials) an A.

Deadman Wonderland is a bizarre and twisted road down the life of a young man going through things that many would consider nightmare fuel. The main character Ganta is a student who gets framed for the death of his entire class and is sent to a correctional facility styled like a theme park that entertains visitors with deadly obstacle courses that can potential kill our protagonist.

Deadman Wonderland definitely has gruesome and gasp worthy moments that make this memorable from start to finish. The deeper plot underneath gives this show the extra push from being just a gore museum to a full blown amusement park of emotions.
