Deadman Wonderland 9 by Jinsei Kataoka, Kazuma Kondou

Deadman Wonderland 9 closes the first story arc and sets the stage for the next step in the story. There is a huge reveal at the end, devastating to Ganta, but also closure (for the moment) for quite a few of the characters. As always, the story remains tightly focused on the action as many fight for their lives or die grisly deaths.


Story: Makina is making her final move on Tamaki – and in the middle of the battle are all the ninben and deadmen prisoners. It will all come to a head – but will Makina or Tamaki stand triumphant? Or will everyone lose?

The twists at the end were a long time coming but definitely worth the wait. Quite a few loose ends were picked up but several new riddles have now emerged. And though we have an ending to this 9 volume story arc, the promise of something quite different to come is all the more intriguing. Reviewed from an advance reader copy provided by the publisher.
