Besides the suspense, both are well animated.  There will be blood, and survival is a must.  I expect D.W. fans to become HOTD fans aswell as long they mind a little bloodshed now and again. Must see.

Both Deadman Wonderland and Shadow Star Narutaru focus on what happens when people receive supernatural powers they should never have received, and what happens when people try to exploit each other utilizing these powers. Told through the perspective of coming-to-age, Deadman Wonderland and Shadow Star Narutaru explore how adolescents must struggle in a world where adults left them behind.

Without focusing on gore, sex or supernatural horror, these both Phantom ~Requiem for the Phantom~ and Deadman Wonderland put an average human being into an unspeakable world of darkness where only their inner will to survive prevails.

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?

Beyond the Boundary

Beyond the Boundary

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.
