Manga Entertainment UK has today announced, via their official Twitter account, that the supernatural action thriller ‘Deadman Wonderland’ will be released onto Blu-ray (and DVD) in July 2013.

Deadman Wonderland tells the tale of Ganta, who is the only survivor after a mysterious man in red slaughters a classroom full of teenagers. He s framed for the carnage, sentenced to die, and locked away in the most twisted prison ever built: Deadman Wonderland.

At Deadman Wonderland, convicts are forced into brutal deathmatches for the amusement of the masses, the cheers of the crowd drowning out the screams of the dismembered. Even when Ganta befriends Shiro, an unusual female inmate, his dark fate crushes all hope until he discovers the strange ability to wield his spilled blood as a weapon. Ganta learns his new skill might be related to the murderous man in red and uncovers disturbing secrets that could expose those who stole his freedom. He’s determined to see justice served – but first he’ll have to fight for his life in a prison that holds a million ways to die.

Deadman Wonderland has previously been released in both America and Australia, however it was never released on Blu-ray, only on DVD, making this a nice surprise for UK blu-ray fans such as ourselves.

[UPDATE]

Manga Entertainment UK have confirmed, yet again via Twitter, that the Deadman Wonderland Blu-ray will be released as a complete collection, featuring all 12 episodes of the TV Series as well as the Final OVA Episode. The Blu-ray release will have a SRP of £34.99 and it will feature all of the episode of 2 Blu-ray Discs.

An exact release date for the Blu-ray will be announced in the coming months, but at the moment its slated for a July 2013 release window.
