After a fight for his life, he manages to overpower the girl, learning that he is to be trained as a Phantom - an assassin for the Inferno organization. He is also given a new name: Zwei. For three months, Zwei is trained by the girl in the arts of assassination until he has just one final test: to kill a living human being.
Japan has reclaimed its former glory under the guidance of Kings, charismatic individuals wielding incredible powers. But now, one of the Red King's vassals has been murdered, and a viral video shows the killer's confession at the scene. He is one Yashiro Isana, claiming to be the Colorless King; and he is now a wanted man - not only to the Red King's faction, but also the Blues charged with keeping the peace. He is even sought by Kuroh Yatogami, a knight of the former Colorless King sworn to slay any unworthy successor. Only, the subject of their struggle, "Shiro", is a nondescript young man living an unremarkable life in an island academy, and seems to have no recollection of killing anyone. To keep his life, Shiro must prove his innocence; but what is the truth behind his mysterious past, and what will be the outcome of this confrontation of Kings?
I watched k and I loved it so much then someone recommended DW for me then I watched the first ep and I thought it seems familiar and when I thought anout it ....
a boy who is framed of a crime he didn't commit and there is a video as a proof and also a mysterious girl appears helping him ...
then I thought wow I'm gonna like this :)
Kimimaro Yoga could use a break. At nineteen years old, he's not only a student at Heisei College of Economics, he's also a part time employee and flat out broke. So when an eerie man offers the boy a special ATM card and an exorbitant amount of cash, Kimimaro gives in to temptation – but there's a catch. In exchange for his good fortune, Kimimaro's very future is put at stake, held as collateral by the Bank of Midas and tied to the amount of yen in his bank account. In addition, he must participate in a special battle every week in the mysterious 'Financial District' – a battle where losing against one's opponent can mean bankruptcy, a fate that carries an unthinkable cost in the normal world...
While C is very colorful and involves battles with sentiant helpers, Deadman has carnaval corpse, where the two people fight. Also the main two characters are similar, at least in the part the guy cant get a break and he has a happy and strong girl at his side during his story.
In a world where supernatural beings known as youmu are hunted by Spirit World Warriors, Akihito lives an eventful life. He’s a half-breed from a human mother and a youmu father, and is immortal - a fact that saves his life on a regular basis, for his bespectacled classmate Mirai can’t seem to stop stabbing him in the chest. She’s a Spirit World Warrior with the power to control her blood, which she manifests into a sword; and with low self esteem about her abilities to hunt youmu, Mirai constantly uses Akihito as target practice. In hopes of being left alone, Akihito must now help Mirai gain confidence to take down sinister youmu.
If you liked the manipulation of blood as a weapon in Beyond the Boundary then Deadman Wonderland is a must watch. both these shows are EXTREMELY emotional and will have you bawling your eyes out! Deadman Wonderland is more shounen and Beyond the Boundary is more shoujo but.. if for some bizzare reason your first thought after finishing the beyond the boundary series was "Kuriyama's power was pretty cool..." watch Deadman Wonderland.
The foundation of alchemy is based on the law of equivalent exchange; you cannot produce something from nothing. As such, alchemy is bound by one taboo - human transmutation. Four years ago two young brothers, Edward and Alphonse Elric, broke this taboo when they tried to resurrect their dead mother. During the process Al's body disintegrated and Ed lost his leg. In a desperate attempt to prevent his brother from disappearing completely, Ed sacrificed one of his arms so he could affix Al's soul to a suit of armor. When his missing limbs are replaced by auto mail parts, Ed bears the name of the Fullmetal Alchemist - the youngest ever State Alchemist and dog of the military. Now, alongside his brother, Ed uses his status within the military to attempt to find any way that he can return their bodies back to their original state.
If you liked Deadman Wonderland or FMA:Brotherhood, you would like the other because they both have a young, male protagonist being pushed to the limit physically, mentally, and emotionally. They are both textbook shounen. Ed and Ganta are both haunted by deaths in their pasts (both were helpless to stop their loved one(s) from dying), and they both must go on a dangerous journey full of action in order to overcome that past. There are some major differences - otherwise it wouldn't be fun! Who wants to watch the same story in a different anime? - like Ganta's prison being a literal prison while Ed's prison is more of a leash from the military.
--I like to compare Branch of Sin to alchemy...Both are a skill that one must train to get better with, both are bad you-know-what, both have an interesting source, both can be improved greatly or even sometimes evolved into a whole new level... When describing Branch of Sin to a friend, I even called it "a kind of blood alchemy" to help her understand.--
The biggest difference is the lengths. :( Deadman Wonderland is good if you have FMA withdrawls after finsihing the series. Fullmetal Alchemist is good if you liked Deadman Wonderland but want something longer and carried more by characters than by events.
