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

      I just noticed that the Humble store is currently selling a light novel/book bundle with a bunch of Kodansha's "Monogatari" stuff by Nisio Ishin (aka "NisiOisiN").  If you're a Bake/Nise/Etc fan you might want to check it out.
       
      (Not sure if this is quite the right category for this topic but I didn't see a light-novel category sooo... <plunk>)

      you know how hunter x hunter has a way of making the fights super technical and SMART as well as filled with super natural things and super powers? I'm trying to find an anime like that but i havent been able to!
      Growing up, Naruto gave me similar vibes, the fights also had depth and intellect and strategies within strategies all being explained while they tell you what the characters are thinking. 
      Most fighting animes dont have that and thats mainly why i LOVE hunter x hunter so much. If anyone knows any similar animes please share! unh

      I have watched: One piece, Naruto, Boruto, Dragon Ball, dragon Ball super, demon slayer, sword art online, one punch man, attack on Titans, seven deadly sins, and Fullmetal alchemist.
      Thank you for your help.
