It’s been a decade, but fans still want Deadman Wonderland Season 2 to be released. It is thriller anime based on manga with the same name. The series is written by Kazuma Kondou and illustrated by Jinsei Kataoka.
The fans love it because of the storyline, the characters, and the gore aspect in Deadman Wonderland. The anime adaptation is produced by Manglobe and listed with 12 episodes. While there are some differences between the manga and the anime, the first season of Deadmen Wonderland is still a fun series to watch.
There are tons of reasons fans want the sequel, and here is everything we know about Deadman Wonderland Season 2.
Will ther be Deadman Wonderland Season 2?
Unfortunately for us, the possibility of Deadman Wonderland Season 2 is pretty low. This is because Manglobe, the studio which produced the first season, went bankrupt in 2015 because of enormous debt, around 350 million yen. However, we can lose all hope.
Manglobe is gone now, but we have chances that another studio will pick it up from the dead. It is not a new thing that an animation studio takes over another studio project. So, we need to wait if there is a studio interested in bringing back the Deadman Wonderland series.
You don’t need to be worried about the lack of material for Deadman Wonderland Season 2 because there is plenty of content to cover. The manga ended some time ago, but the anime only adapts the first 14 chapters. Total there are 58 chapters which compiled into 13 volumes. Therefore, there are around 44 chapters that can be adapted for the sequel.
The first installment finished with an open end and not an original one. It will make it easier for a new studio to continue what Manglobe had done.
So, never say never to Deadman Wonderland Season 2.
Deadman Wonderland Season 2 Release Date
From the possibilities above, we can clearly say that there is no release date for Deadman Wonderland Season 2. Don’t expect so much, but don’t lose hope too.
Just like we said before, we can only wait for another studio to pick the series up. Manglobe did a great job starting the series, but they are gone now. A good production company is needed to revive Deadman Wonderland. Sadly, we can be picky, so if some company wants to produce the second season, we have to support them no matter what.
Plot of Deadman Wonderland
Deadman Wonderland is a prison built after a powerful earthquake nearly destroyed Tokyo. It also has functioned as a theme park, with prisoners from all over Japan becoming its main attraction. However, behind the scene, there are real horrors that take place within.
Ganta Igarashi is our protagonist here. He is a middle school student who has lived a normal life after the great earthquake. Ganta’s life changes drastically since Red Man, a mysterious masked murderer, comes to his school and kills all of his classmates, leaving him as the sole survivor.
When he awakes in the hospital, Ganta is falsely convicted as the murderer behind the massacre, thus making him one of the prisoners in Deadman Wonderland. There, he meets with a mysterious girl called Shiro, who claims to be his childhood friend. It is the beginning of the nightmare for Ganta.
Romi Park is the voice behind Ganta, while Hana Kanazawa plays Shiro. Additional cast includes Masayuki Katou (Overlord), Iori Nomizu (Date a Live), Daisuke Ono (Black Butler), and Yuki Kaji (Attack on Titan).
Besides the television series, there is also OVA titled Deadman Wonderland: The Red Knife Wielder. It tells the story of how Kiyomasa Senji, a police officer, becomes a prisoner in Deadman Wonderland.
