The Great Tokyo Earthquake. Ten years ago, it destroyed lives as it tore buildings asunder. Among those who lived through the disaster was Ganta Igarashi, now a middle school student finally getting a footing in his own life... that is, until the day the 'Red Man' appears at his school and turns his world upside down again. Ganta's entire class is brutally murdered, and although innocent of the crime, Ganta is sentenced to death and sent to the bizarre prison known as 'Deadman Wonderland.' There, a brutal game of survival begins, where Ganta must discover the truth behind his classmates' murder.
Can Ganta break out of Deadman Wonderland... or will it break him first?

Deadman has it's shinning moments but pathos creeps in. Framed for a crime he didn’t commit… this twisted view of future where criminals work for their stay in execution might be right up some right-wing ideaology but this take leaves a bitter taste in the mouth.
I trust this wll make some kind of sense at some point.
Same as Glenn said but also Deathnote v. 2.0 minus the book maybe?
quite watchable for so fatalistic a premise.
This looks like moderately compelling (and fairly gory) psychodrama, with emphasis on the "psycho". Pretty high on the sadism scale; not to be watched right before bedtime.
