1 "Death Row Inmate" April 17, 2011 May 26, 2012
As Ganta Igarashi and his classmates plan for a class trip to Deadman Wonderland, a privately owned prison that also serves as an amusement park, a mysterious "Red Man" appears, killing his entire class and thrusting a red stone into Ganta's chest. Being the only survivor out of the entire class, Ganta is charged with mass murder and, due to the overwhelming and doctored evidence against him with no way to prove his innocence, he is sentenced to death and sent to Deadman Wonderland's prison. As some of the higher ups plot to kill Ganta in an "accident", Ganta meets a strange white-haired girl named Shiro, who manages to read his heart and understand him. When a bunch of bullies start attacking Ganta and Shiro, an explosion causes a large object to fall towards Ganta. However, Ganta's desire to keep living so he can kill the Red Man activates the powers that were implanted in him, allowing him to control his blood to save himself as well as Shiro.
2 "Antidote (Candy)" April 24, 2011 June 2, 2012
Ganta learns from a fellow inmate, Yō Takami, that in order to have a decent meal in the prison, he needs to earn "cast points". He learns of a "dog race" in which he can win a big prize, which he and Shiro decide to enter. In the locker room, they encounter a fierce inmate named Kazumasa Kouzuji who drives fear into the others until Makina, the prison warden, silences him. Ganta soon learns that in order to avoid being killed by a poison, he needs to eat an antidote known as "candy", which was secretly stolen from his bag by Yō the other day. Ganta realizes that in order to survive, he needs to win the race in order to purchase a new one, but he soon learns the course is littered with actual death traps. Thanks in part to Shiro's innocent manner, Ganta and Shiro make it to the final stage against Kasumasa, where they have to hold onto a ball and avoid falling into a spike pit. Ganta decides to stand up to Kazumasa, who eventually falls to his death. In the closing moments of the round, Ganta is forced to sacrifice the ball, and the prize money, in order to keep Shiro from falling and keep their promise of eating the runner up prize together.
3 "G Block" May 1, 2011 June 9, 2012
Put in charge of observing him by the promoter Tsunenaga Tamaki, Yō gives Ganta a piece of candy so he can keep living, unaware that Yō is putting him in his debt. Meanwhile, the Red Man, now known as the Wretched Egg, breaks loose and appears before Ganta. Then, Ganta tries attacking the Wretched Egg using his own abilities, but the Wretched Egg escapes not long before Ganta falls unconscious. After waking up, Ganta hears from the other witnesses that they keep the Wretched Egg locked up in the G-Block of the prison, so he and Shiro head towards there. Deeming him dangerous, Makina puts the facility on lock-down and sends a fierce security robot after Ganta. As it approaches them, Ganta and Yō follow Shiro into a secret passage leading to the G-Block. As Shiro confronts the robot, it is destroyed by the arrival of another inmate with the same powers as Ganta.

Senji tries to attack Ganta again, but finds himself weak against Shiro before a special unit appears, tranquilizing Ganta and Senji and taking Shiro and Yō to an empty corridor. As Ganta is examined, he comes face to face with Tamaki who reveals he rigged Ganta's jury verdict to get him sent to Deadman Wonderland before revealing Ganta will face off against Senji in a battle the next day, tempting him with the prospect of coming face to face with the Wretched Egg.

After Ganta recovers from his victory, he is horrified to find that Senji is forced to have one of his eyes removed as a result of losing.

When the match begins, Minatsuki's personality changes completely and attacks with her whip-like Branch of Sin, revealing she had manipulated him into taking an injury prior to the match. However, Yō appears, revealing Minatsuki to be his little sister, saying that he plans to gain enough cast points to buy her freedom before entering the arena.
