Bravo animé! What a way to smash clichés! Girlfriends have been mostly shy moé doting creatures or tsunderé types or aggressive combat experts. However, you could always tell whether they were the good guys or bad guys, whether to root for them or not. This show however defies that trend by giving the protagonist a heroine from whom he has as much to fear as to love. She is "crazy about him" quite literally. Only rarely is she a doting girlfriend. At other times a liability and at other times she is in "full-on psycho mode" and those are the times when she shines. Should Yuki stay with her or ditch her? That's what Yuki and the viewer will keep asking himself.Read more ›
The plot synopsis by itself should be more than enough to get you interested if you are into survival game stories as it is undeniably one of the most original, and has the most potential. The rules are simple. There are 12 people who were manic diary keepers all competing in a game of last-man-standing with the prize being the throne of god. To make things interesting, god has given these people's diaries the ability to tell them the future as if their diary entries were already written. This makes for some truly nail biting battles as people are constantly trying to avoid death as they use whatever information their diaries can give them about the future to escape death, and exploit any lack of information of other people's diaries to pin them down and finish them off.
That is just the beginning however. Yuki, the first person to receive one of these future diaries, is rather timid and introverted. Most definitely not suited to playing a survival game, even though as an introvert he would fill his diary with whatever things he saw happen around him, making his diary the most broad and useful. So, he must team up with his psychotic stalker Yuno Gasai, who is the most enchantingly insane character that I have ever had the pleasure of witnessing. Unlike Yuki, Yuno's killer instincts are razor sharp, and she has the brutality to follow through on it. However, Yuno's diary also leaves her incredibly vulnerable.Read more ›
Those who are coming into this expecting a series about a cute little girl with pink hair that does silly things, are going to find themselves disappointed. A true successor to Death Note, minus the disappointing second act, Future Diary, aka Mirai Nikki, is a darker, more emotional, and more thought provoking story than one would think at first glance.
The anime centers around two characters, Amano Yukiteru and Gasai Yuno, who are caught up in a high stakes game of life or death. Deus ex Machina, the God of the Future Diary universe, is dying, and he's set up a game to determine who will take his place. Each of the 12 contestants is given a 'future diary' that, as the name implies, predicts future events and records them as diary entries, each in a slightly different way. The goal of the game is for each contestant to kill the other 11, and the last man (or woman) standing is the winner.
The great thing about Future Diary is that it gives you a little bit of everything, and holds it together well. The show has a great mix of romance, suspense, comedy, drama, and even horror. It will make you laugh, it will make you cry, it even has a straight up shonen, super saiyan beat down towards the end.
The characters as well, are one of the places that the series excels at. Even the villains or characters that you hate, will absolutely make you fall in love with them by the end.Read more ›
