Igarashi Ganta, an ordinary student attending Nagano Prefecture's middle school, is an escapee, a survivor of the great earthquake. But he has no memories of the tragedy and has lived a normal life. This all changes when a strange person covered in blood and crimson armor floats through his classroom windows. Grinning madly, the Red Man massacres Ganta's entire class but instead of killing him, embeds a red crystal shard in Ganta's chest. Within days of the massacre, Ganta is declared the sole suspect. Following a quick trial, he is sentenced to death and incarcerated in Deadman Wonderland, a massive theme park like prison. Due to the heinous nature of Ganta's 'crime', he has to live out his imprisonment under Deadman Wonderland's 'Death Sentence'. A lethal poison is constantly injected into his bloodstream through a collar he wears, but it can be neutralized by consuming a peculiar candy-like medicine every three days, which can be acquired through various activities in the prison. In order to gather Cast Points, the prison's currency, an inmate has to perform in the facility's lethal games and survive. Fortunately for Ganta, he is aided by a mysterious girl named Shiro, who apparently knows Ganta. While trying to survive as an inmate on death row, Ganta becomes obsessed with the 'Red Man' and tries to find him so he could clear his name. In a bizarre twist, Ganta begins to develop the ability to manipulate his own blood, turning it into a weapon. Unbeknownst to him, Ganta has become one of the prison's 'Deadmen', a segregated group of prisoners possessing the Branches of Sin which makes them capable of controlling their blood. After his ability is discovered, Ganta is forced to participate in brutal gladiatorial death matches, known as Carnival Corpse. In his struggle, Ganta befriends some of those he fought off in the arena. With their help Ganta continues his quest to uncover the identity of the Red Man and the dark secrets the prison authorities are hiding.
