Shiro News

Shiro is a anime/manga character in the Deadman Wonderland franchise
| |

Hey everyone, welcome to the Toonami's discussion thread for Deadman Wonderland. I know it's a bit late, but I wanted to keep the hype and the momentum that Toonami and Richie Branson left high as possible in this community.

For those who are new to the Deadman Wonderland franchise, here's a synopsis written by the Anime Vice wiki editors.

The Tokyo Quake. A devastating disaster that left the city in ruins, and is the setting of our sordid tale.

The Deadman Wonderland. A prison where only the worst of the worst go. But Ganta Igarashi has found himself falsely accused of murder and sent to this terrifying prison. Afraid for his life, Ganta discovers that he is a " Deadman", a person who can manipulate their own blood as a form of attack. Now, Ganta and his new friend Shiro must find a way out of the prison, or else fall victim to the sadistic Director and his diabolical plans.

Questions for Discussion

I'm just adding these to promote the discussion.

  • What do you guys and gals feel about the dub? What characters' voices were good and what were bad?
  • Do you feel that Toonami did a good job in airing Deadman Wonderland?

I'm going put my thoughts into this spoiler box and comment later.

Pros:

It was a hell of roller coaster ride. Lots of tension, violence, and profanity. I could have sworn it had a lot of bleeps. It was funny at some times.

I remember Minatsuki had a lot of bleeps when she shares what really happened in the past. I love her voice acting.

Crow and Owl's dub voice are cool.

Cons:

Due to the dubbing, Ganta's voice actor makes it hard to take him seriously. I haven't watch the sub yet, but I have seen some clips. Shiro's dub voice is okay, but she does sound innocent and eerie when she sings in the sub version.

Like most violent anime shows, there is a lot of censorship. What they do is make some areas black. During the first episode and Crow's first fight with Ganta, it's really hard see. In Ganta's first meeting with Crow, it's hard to enjoy the action when everything is too damn dark.

Thank you everyone for sharing your thoughts.

Notes: I usually record Adult Swim on my VHS tapes since I usually wiki edit late on Saturdays. Since May of 2012, I recorded Deadman Wonderland up to Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood. I'll start up a discussion thread for Casshern Sins but not for Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood.

Kadokawa Promotes Lollipop Chainsaw with Highschool of the Dead

Imagine my surprise as I was browsing for pictures of Saeko Busujima that I stumbled on this illustration by Shouji Sato, artist on HIGHSCHOOL OF THE DEAD, of the star of LOLLIPOP CHAINSAW, Juliet Starling, along with Saeko and Rei Miyamoto, two of the stars from H.O.T.D..

Highschool of the Dead x Lollipop Chainsaw by Shouji Sato

I was originally pretty confused about this cross promotion. Other than they are both about chopping zombies up. I didn't see any other connection. I know Dragon Age magazine, where H.O.T.D. is originally serialized, loves to put Saeko and Rei on the covers despite the series being on hiatus. It wasn't until I paid more attention to the LOLLIPOP CHAINSAW trailer that it all fell into place. H.O.T.D. is published by Kadokawa. LOLLIPOP CHAINSAW is being published by Kadokawa Games.

Oh yeah, if you didn't know, That's the living-disembodied head of Juliet Starling boyfriend, Nick, tied to her belt. It all makes more sense once you realize this is another Suda 51 project. You can check out a trailer for the game here:

[UPDATE]

A big thanks to user DrifterInGreen for jogging my memory that I saw pictures a while ago for alternate costume options for Juliet that include both Saeko and Rei. A little further digging led me to even more anime based costumes for Juliet. The list I could find includes Haruna from IS THIS A ZOMBIE?, Shiro from DEADMAN WONDERLAND, and Chisusa Manyu from MANYU HIKEN-CHO. What bothers me though is that I've yet to be able to confirm if these costumes will be available outside of the Japanese version.

HIGHSCHOOL OF THE DEAD is currently being published in the U.S. by Yen Press and the first six volumes are currently available to buy. LOLLIPOP CHAINSAW will be coming to the XBox 360 and PS3 this June.
