The Future Diary

  • AKA: Mirai Nikki, 未来日記
  • Aired: 10/08/2011
  • Episodes: 26

Lonely high school student, Yukiteru Amano, spends his days writing a diary on his cellphone, while conversing with his two seemingly imaginary friends Deus Ex Machina, who is the god of time and space, and Murmur, the god's servant. Revealing himself to be an actual entity, Deus grants Yukiteru a "Random Diary," which shows highly descriptive entries based on the future and forces him into a bloody battle royale with 11 other holders of similarly powerful future diaries.

With the last person standing designated as the new god of time and space, Yukiteru must find and kill the other 11 in order to survive. He reluctantly teams up with his obsessive stalker Yuno Gasai (who also possesses such a diary), and she takes it upon herself to ensure his safety. But there's more to the girl than meets the eye, as she might have other plans for her unrequited love...

It's actually one of my favorite anime of all time. Let's start with the not-so-typical-romance between the two main characters which I'm pretty sure any anime viewers who wants to step out from the safe romance side would like. A not so brave boy with a lot of pure luck and a simple overly obsess girl is not your typical anime couple. Side characters in the anime also have interesting side stories which also develops as the anime continues and can pretty much entertain those viewers whose not into the romance between the main characters. Plot wise it's actually a winner. It's all about having future diaries which tells different futures and how these people possessing future diaries will survive in a game they have no choice but to submit to. The anime is totally psychological with a hint of romance. The plot twists are very unpredictable and somewhat mind boggling. I think this anime paved the way for Yanderes, their twisted personalities and how they face unrequited love.

A very good anime indeed, Mirai Nikki presents us with Yukiteru Amano who has a phone that can predict the future along with Yuno Gasai as they survive and decide who'll be the next successor of Deus Ex Machina..

8/10

      Hi everyone,
      Please help me track down an anime I saw as kid. Certainly I don't remember the title, but I remember some of the plot and what the characters looked like. It was a sci-fi. I remember it was about a princess (I presume she was) being abducted and our heroes travel on a space ship to rescue her. The main male protagonist was thin, wore blue jeans, green T-shirt, carried a knife, among the rest of the rescuers there were 2 other guys, one wearing glasses, grey trousers, white T-shirt, was extremely fearful. Also there was a fat guy who most likely wore a green T-shirt, very fearful too. Also they had a robot teammate accompanying them.
      There was a scene where our rescuers reach something resembling a shaft, with blue walls. A descent into the cave. They start climb it down. As they look down, it’s descending into darkness, while when they look up, there’s a bright light above. Then they end up inside an underground cave.
      The only villain I remember was the Cyclops in the cave, this one scared me a lot as a kid. I remember there's a part where the princess is shown chained in the cave and the Cyclops was sleeping beside her/guarding. As the heroes are walking the cave, Pink Floyd's "Time" is playing (I remember that part was very scary back then).
      That's all I manage to remember, the easiest way to identify this would be the cyclops and Pink Floyd's "Time". It was a wonderful anime from what I remember.
      Somebody please help me find this. I absolutely loved it as a kid.
      Thanks in advance so much.

      What makes an anime an anime and no longer a cartoon? Like Avatar the last air bender isn’t considered an actual anime, but I think it has the qualities to be one
