    @EganTheVile1: Are you talking about One Reason? That was the Japanese opening. I was really surprised when I was watching Wonderland when it first came out. All they did for the Toonami run was cut down a 4:30 song from a 1:30 opening to a :30 one

    I was talking about the 30 second English language Deadman theme that I can not believe some hack band got paid for, and continues to get paid for, geeez, I am glad I never judge an anime based on it's opening theme otherwise I might have turned away from DW based on that mess. But if your saying a longer, and better version exists, I may hold my judgement until I hear that version.

    Actually they reworded the song for Deadman Wonderland. So take a 5 minute song, re-write lyrics for a 90 second anime intro, then cut that down to 30 seconds for the American dub. (The song was ALWAYS in English though.)
