Deadman Wonderland continues this week surpassing it’s excellent display last week. In episode two, Ganta learns a bit more about how the crazy theme park prison, Deadman Wonderland, works. We learn that in order for death-row inmates to survive, they need to eat a special candy which acts as an antidote every three days. They need the antidote because their prisoner collar is injecting them slowly and constantly with poison. Ganta lost his first piece of candy when Yoh tripped into him in episode one.
I’m thinking, Yoh is a deceiving bastard like a few select others in Deadman Wonderland. Meanwhile, there are also few insiders, or knowledgeable characters who are merely watching or enjoying time pass but are good characters, like the G-cups guard or Shiro. That previous sentence is mainly my thoughts, but Yoh is clearly seen partaking in some suspicious activity.
I’ve also mentioned this before for episode one, but it’s so much more prominent in episode two I’ve got to say it again. The visuals are a stunning, fast-paced, fluid and vivid, motion-filled display of awesome. Each scene packs so much vitality and life, it’s beyond any anime ever has or possibly even ever will contain. This is backed by the seemingly anatomically distinct, diverse, and accurate facial expressions the characters portray throughout the episode.
That might be a pretty deep statement for a single anime series, but this one is just noticeably above the rest.
