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

      Zatch Bell doesn't get mentioned much, and not many people actually seem to remember it.
      I personally never cared for Zatch Bell. The reason is because of how over the top it is, and the main character (Zatch) is pretty annoying, and there's also a lot of annoying characters in it too. Also the anime just has too much humor in it, since the humor ruins many moments that are supposed to be serious.

      Just started the Netflix series, Castlevania and I have to say I'm pretty hooked. I'm really picky when it comes to American anime and most I don't care for because they are down right boring as heck. I finally reached season two, episode 5 last night. The only real issue for me on the series is the fact that the seasons are so dang short. Season one literally only has 4 episodes, ugh.
      So does anyone else watch the series? What do you think of it?

      And if you haven't seen it by chance.... do that.
