Shiro is Ganta's sister.
Either biological or adopted.
- Apparently not, in both ways. For one thing, Ganta almost certainly lived away from Shiro throughout his childhood, even if he did constantly visit her, so adoption isn't likely. Ganta's mom bought Shiro as a baby, and Shiro was fostered at the medical center, which disproves it on both counts.
Deadman Wonderland is an SCP Containment site
The prisoners are D-Class
. The candy? Its SCP-500. Also, the entire park is built to contain the being responsible for The Devastation of Tokyo
Or as it is better known Prisoner 682
(The Dharma Initiative
may or may not be involved.)
The Director is Shiro and/or Ganta's father/grandfather.
Why else would they have the same unitard and extensive surgical scars?
- This might explain why Tamaki and Ganta have such similar hair styles. Also, the Director commented on how Ganta "has the Igarashi blood (or something similar) in him" after the Woodpecker vs. Hummingbird fight.
- The director basically adopted Shiro after Ganta's mother's death, so kind of. As for Ganta's father? It's extremely doubtful. Hagire's relationship with Sorae was strictly professional at best, though they might have been friends before Sorae's Heel Realization.
He's keeping an eye on his son/grandson and his "organ donors."
Ganta's mother is the anonymous bettor at the Carnival Corpse matches.
Just because Ganta's been living as an orphan dosen't mean his biological parents are dead. However
, it's also possible that...
In the flashback at the beginning of the manga she's seen playing the piano and crying, because she knows that the Applied Phlebotinum
is about to react and cause both the earthquake and a whole lot of trouble for some soon-to-be superhumans. She probably feels that the approaching disaster is her fault, much like Dr. Hineman from Minority Report
feels responsible for imprisoning the precogs.
- Chapter 53: She committed suicide after finishing the Mother Goose System. Jossed because this happened shortly after the Great Tokyo Earthquake, so this was close.
Shiro and the Director are the recipients of the forfeited organs of the Carneval Corpse losers.
Just look at all those scars! The two haven't displayed their powers because The Director is bedridden while Shiro—-
Senji personally knew Toto Sakigami before his disappearance
Senji knew exactly what Toto was doing when he licked Senji's blood, and he said that it 'hadn't been long enough' since they had last seen each other. Toto or more specifically, Hagire
also calls Senji 'old buddy' in the English dub. This implies that Senji didn't just know Toto by his rather terrifying
reputation in the Carnival Corpse, and had some kind of a history with him. It's doubtful that they had a Carnival Corpse match against one another, though, since Senji doesn't have any signs of a previous Penalty Game, and it was known that Toto was undefeated, meaning he would have beaten him if they did.
Shiro is not a Deadman, she's something else.
If she did have "Branch of Sin" powers either naturally or implanted via the Blood Diamonds or transferred from the harvested organs, they would have manifested during the Dog Race when she was being Ganta's human shield; also, Shiro seems to have made a guard tower which did not appear to have any explosives inside blow up. BoS powers are edge/point weapons: Senji and Minatsuki use them as blades, Ganta as bullets. There hasn't been any scene yet where they're used as explosives
. Still, perhaps—
- Nagi's Owl's Eyeballs explode. Seen here. So Shiro could very well be a Deadman with an explosive move.
- Shiro is the Red Man. The Red Man is a Deadman. By way of the transitive property, Shiro is a Deadman.
- Completely Jossed in the last two chapters, where she uses Deadman powers while not being the Red Man.
- Shiro's Branch of Sin didn't activate during the race because until recently, the power was completely tied to her Wretched Egg personality.
There are different aspects to Branch of Sin powers.
guy is proof that BoS powers can be used in ways other then "blood blades/whips/bullets"; besides, we've only seen four Deadmen (out of at least a dozen or a score) use their powers, sooo—
Shiro is a Deadman, she's just never been injured before.
Her powers are never shown "on camera," only the results
. It's assumed she lived in the same sort of highly secure area as the Director, or perhaps she's been drugged for a long time and was released to look after Ganta. Since she's never used her powers before, they didn't come out when she got injured during the Dog Race.
- Jossed BIG time. Under that bodysuit? A whole bunch of scars. She's also been dismembered before.
See S-Cry-Ed, Static Shock
!, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
The underlying reason to all of the above is "because it's Seinen".
The warden is actually Shiro and possibly Toto's father
She called the old head of deadmen wonderland grandpa and the original warden was Tamaki's father after all. Toto and Shiro are also both insane albinos that freely wander the prison.
- Jossed in both cases. Though, he was Shiro's adopted father. In Toto's case... you could say, in a way, he IS Toto. And Toto is stated to have been an orphan, who only had his older sister to take care of him.
Makina is the (biological or foster) mother of Ganta and Shiro.
That is all.
- I dunno. The woman in that picture doesn't have Makina's Gag Boobs.
- Jossed. See: Above. Makina isn't dead, but I admit, they DO look similar.
Both love violence, both seem to be extremely well-built, both have the same spiked-up hair and eyepatch... well, you get the idea.
That is all.
Senji's coin is double side
That's how it always comes up lizard side up.
- Confirmed, but only in the Anime. In the OVA, the lizard coin is Domon's, Senji's old boss on the police force. He uses the coin flip to trick Senji into doing the early morning patrol, until Senji snatches the coin and realizes it is double sided.
- Confirmed in the manga as of Chapter 54, too.
The reasons the members of Scar Chain are in jail in the first place are…
The court that convicted Ganta is part of whatever conspiracy is going on.
Despite how well set up Ganta was, there are some glaring inconsistencies in the prosecution's case, to the point that no impartial court could have convicted him. Namely, how did he manage to commit this crime? 29 students and one teacher can't hold off one scrawny kid? And what happened to the weapon? Ganta was so injured that he passed out and woke up in the hospital, leaving him no time to hide the weapon, but none was found on him, either. The windows were blown in, indicating forced entry and necessitating that for Ganta to have been responsible, he'd have had to place a bomb outside the window, set it off while he was in the classroom, use the resulting commotion to slice up anyone the bomb left alive, and hide the weapon before he passed out from his own injuries. An impartial court doesn't convict someone simply because they appear to be the only one with access when the means to commit the crime are so obviously lacking. The only conclusion I can draw is that the court is part of the conspiracy, and the media is just eating it up, partly for ratings and partly because they don't want to believe the truth.
- However, they also exonerated him later in the manga after Deadman Wonderland was shut down once the truth got out.
Genta ends up a broken, scared and pathetic wuss on the inside.
During the course of the series, Ganta develops a kind of split personality. While on the surface, he seems like such a determinator, inside, however, he remains the same weak and cowardly Ganta he was when he entered Deadman Wonderland, unable to cope with all Deadman Wonderland throws at him.
Every Deadman has a split-personality.
It is impossible to maintain one's sanity in Deadman Wonderland, especially in Carnival Corpse. Developing a split personality is a survival technique needed to avoid dying or becoming completely insane under the intense physical and psychological danger.
Because it's so obvious.
Chapter 56 ends on a Cliff Hanger
as, after a neat Flash Back
to their former daily lives, Ganta and Shiro
both close in for the finishing blow. Now, until Chapter 57 comes out, readers are left to wonder who will survive and how. So, who will be your winner?
*The final chapter reveals both Ganta and Shiro survived, but the blast left Shiro in a coma, she wakes up in the end though. Oh, and this also takes place years later seeing as how Ganta is all grown up.
- Ganta and Shiro are going to be Together in Death: Given that Ganta's powers are killing him and that Shiro wishes to die, it seems like a logical, if twisted and heart-wrenching, outcome for the battle. Not to mention that the author has not held any punches regarding killing important characters up to this point...
- Turns out Shiro doesn't actually want to die. She just wants to live a normal lifeand be happy with Ganta, but feels she doesn't deserve that and should die for everything's she's done. Ganta basically says to screw everything. Even if neither he nor Shiro herself can forgive her for what she's done, he loves her all the same, good and bad, and that it's alright for her to love him. They may or may not be dead as of the end of chapter 56.2, what with their blood diamonds shattering and causing a huge explosion, but at this point that doesn't really matter. In life or in death, at least we know they will be together forever.
