- Actor Allusion:
- For Tsunenaga Tamaki: Four Eyes, Zero Soul? check. Experimenting on people? Check. Relius Clover, anyone?
- Exclusive to the English dub, J. Michael Tatum plays Nagi Kengamine who performs Sebastian's bow in episode 7. Another instance of Casting Gag in the dub.
- Also exclusive to the English dub, Genkaku's an Ax-Crazy Psycho for Hire under duties to kill superpowered people kept inside a prison and is voiced by Jason Douglas, who also voiced another such character.
- Keep Circulating the Tapes: 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:
- Real Song Theme Tune: The opening is a variation of Fade's "Black Hearts and Dollar Signs" called "One Reason".
- Also, the ending theme "Shiny Shiny" by Nirgilis.
- 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.
