As Ganta and his classmates plan for a school field trip to Deadman Wonderland, a privately owned prison which functions as an amusement park, a mysterious red man appears killing the entire class and thrusts a red stone into Ganta's chest. As the lone survivor, Ganta is accused of mass murder, with fabricated evidence, and sent to Deadman Wonderland where he is to be executed. As the higher ups plot to kill him in an 'accident', Ganta meets Shiro who manages to understand him. When the two were being bullied, an explosion causes debris to fall on them, but Ganta's will to keep on living to kill the red man activates the powers implanted in him, giving him the ability to use his blood to protect himself and Shiro.
