Trivia: Deadman Wonderland
The following are Trivial facts relating to Deadman Wonderland.
  • Keep Circulating The Manga: Not many people knew about the manga when it came out, and due to poor sales, was canceled after five volumes when Tokyopop restructured, which canon-wise is roughly the same time the anime wrapped up. Unfortunate, considering that when the revived Toonami showcased the anime upon its re-launch, interest in the series soared, forcing those wanting to see what happens next to resort to scanlations.
  • Name's the Same: Mockingbird's voice actor. No, that's not THE Ryan Reynolds.
  • Playing Against Type: Leah Clark as the foul-mouthed Cute and Psycho Minatsuki in the dub.
    • Everyone is hilariously coarse in the English dub, including many voice actors who typically don't stray into that area.
    • Eric Vale as Tamaki is a partial example. While Eric is no stranger to the Smug Snake roles - Kimblee and Sakyou come to mind - he's still better-known for playing heroic roles, like Trunks, America, and Sanji.
  • Series Hiatus: The manga underwent one in 2012, due to the author's pregnancy.
  • Sleeper Hit: Deadman did not do very well in its original Japanese run, and FUNimation picked it up for a cheap buck. When it was announced that [adult swim] would be reviving Toonami as an anime-only block for late-night TV on Saturdays, FUNimation and Williams Street struck a deal to give Deadman a premiere-only run, airing episodes 1 through 12 as a promotion for the DVD release. While the first week's episodes weren't anything special, by week two the series ratings began to rival those of Bleach, with later episodes breaking a million viewers.
