Mirai Nikki.

Plot-
Yukiteru has always been rejecting any offers to go with friends, and he just keeps writing a diary on his cell phone. He has an imaginary friend, a god called Deus Ex Machina. However, Deus now wants to play a game with Yukiteru, a game of survival. There are 12 contestants, Yukiteru is one of them. The winner of the survival game will become the next Deus Ex Machina. In order to win the game, the contestants must use their diaries to eliminate one another. For Yukiteru to survive, he must team up with another diary holder, a girl by the name of Yuno.

Each player is assigned a number based on the order that Deus modified his or her diary. The diaries now record the future in the same manner their future selves would have written down events that have already happened. The only exception to this rule is when the holder reaches a DEAD END. Each diary varies in properties & functions depending on the holder's personality, occupation and/or lifestyle. All the diaries have their shortcomings, some moreso than others. And because the diaries are written from the perspective of the holder's future self, the future can still be misinterpreted and the diary entries can then turn out to be inaccurate. Each of the diaries have become the diary holder's future. So if it is destroyed, so too is the holder's future.

Characters
-

Amano and the 11 other diary holders.

1.[Amano Yukiteru]
Amano Yukiteru sees his own life as if he were a bystander. His "No Difference" diary reflects that attitude. In a detached, neutral tone, the diary records the future changes in his surroundings every couple of minutes. This gives Yukiteru timely, detailed entries of the future around him and is perhaps the one of the most accurate diaries revealed so far. Its major flaw is that nothing short of a DEAD END will make the diary record anything about Yukiteru himself.

Despite his severe lack of social skills, Yukiteru, nicknamed Yuki, is a fairly normal middle schooler who has gotten in way over his head in Deus's survival game. He has been marked by Deus as the one who has triggered impossible events and great changes to occur in the future. For that same reason, he is also viewed by the other diary holders as being the most likely to win the game, and is therefore the most dangerous player who must be taken out. Yukiteru possesses remarkable accuracy in throwing darts, which he practices every morning with several dartboards in his room. He prefers to eliminate the other holders by destroying their diaries utilizing his darts instead of using the simpler method of outright killing them with sharp, pointy objects; possibly because he is one of the few people who is actually sane.


2. [Gasai Yuno]
Gasai Yuno is obsessively in love with Yukiteru, as one can safely guess from just the simple name of her future diary. Yukiteru's condition and actions are recorded every ten minutes in her "Yukiteru" diary, it also provides small commentary made by Yuno in some of the entries. Its most obvious weakness is that it does not show Yuno's future at all -- her condition, situation, or surroundings — unless it somehow involves Yuki. Working with Yukiteru's "No Difference" diary, however, covers both of their diaries' individual flaws; as it has been said the two make for a perfect combo.

Smart, beautiful and diligent — those who don't truly know Gasai Yuno would simply see the model student role she plays while at school. She is secretly obsessed with Yukiteru and would do anything within her power to assist him. She can be quite clingy and is highly fond of stalking him. When obstacles arise that either endangers Yukki's life or threatens their relationship, her thoughts turn murderous and she lets nothing get in the way of her path. Yuno is also able to quickly analyze and adept to unexpected situations that may arise, and she puts thoughts into action without hesitation, performing what needs to be done without ever losing her nerves. These traits make her one of the strongest players in Deus's game, despite having one of the weakest diaries for providing self survival aid. And while Yukiteru is credited for triggering the greatest shift in future occurrences, Yuno is the one who has created the largest influence in those events. Yuno tends to carry around a boxcutter with her at all times, though she will make use of other weaponry such as kitchen knives, hatchets, etc, when required.

3. [Hiyamama Takao]
Hiyamama Takao is a teacher in Yuki's school and is the serial killer reported within its vicinity. Not much is known about Takao character-wise, since the man was only given four lines of dialogue in the series, all related with finding and being surprised by Yukiteru. His "Killer" diary records the location of his next intented victim. It is a handy diary if one knew the true identity of the other diary holders and wishes to take the offensive in the game, but it does little in the way of anything else.

4.[Kurusu Keigo]
Kurusu Keigo is a police officer, so it follows with reason that his diary relates to his work. The "Investigation" diary gives Keigo information of future crimes and activities committed anywhere within the prefecture he is assigned to. Whether or not this means his diary can record events that will happen simultaneously in different locations is still up in the air. Its major flaw is a location issue; his diary is rendered useless at predicting anywhere outside his patrolling district.

5. [Houjou Reisuke]
Houjou Reisuke is a seemingly harmless 4 year old child. Accompanied by some drawings, his "Super Vision" diary is a coloring book that gives a small summary of the activities he will perform for the day. However, not only is there a large time gap between the entries, the diary only shows three of them per day: morning, noon and night. It does have a certain advantage of giving Reisuke all three entries at the same time, which allows him ample time to carefully plot his next move.

6.[Kasugano Tsubaki]
Kasugano Tsubaki is a maiden and figurehead of the Onukata religion. Her "Thousand League Eyes" diary is unlike the other diaries, as it is a scroll, rather than a cell phone. As its name would suggest, it is able to report the future of all her followers; allowing her to gain some form of mind control over them. Unlike Yukiteru's diary, it is not limited to just her surroundings, but also sees far events, such as seeing the events Yuki had accomplished a great distance away from where she resides. Her diary can also record near events; the short-term future that will occur after only a few seconds away from the present. This provides Tsubaki with massive amounts of information to work with. However, it can pose as a hindrance in times where a situation changes constantly or when she needs to react quickly.

8. [has yet to make an appearance]

9. [Uryuu Minene]
Uryuu Minene is a terrorist bomber. Like the Fourth, her "Escape" diary goes along with the type of profession she is involved in. Whenever Minene faces a dire situation, the diary will chart out the best course of actions she can take in order to get out of a tight spot. Based on the function of her diary, it might even help reduce the chances of her receiving a DEAD END, and it is probably one of the best diaries to have in Deus's game of survival. The diary's only shortcoming is that there are some circumstances where the odds are too heavily stacked against Minene to the point where the diary won't be able to secure an escape route for her.

10. [??????]
This man loves and values his dogs more than himself, as shown when he cooked them steak, meat sauce, and 30 year old wine for dinner, while he himself was content with eating cup ramen. He possesses the "Rearing" diary, which allows him to check on the status of his beloved dogs as well as controlling them in squads via voice commands. The dogs can be controlled to chase and kill people. The diary's weakness seems to be issuing the order of chasing multiple targets, which would require greater concentration in herding the dogs and would also leave the user vulnerable to attack as the holder would be alone.

11. [has yet to make an appearance]

12. [Hirasaka Yomotsu]
Hirasaka Yomotsu is a blind man who makes use of a tape recorder that he dubs the "Justice" diary, where it records the wrong-doings of future events he thinks need correcting. It's a pretty misleading name since Yomotsu considers the evil deeds committed by a religion cult as much of an injustice as finding random trash on the floor. His diary's actual functions are actually similar to the Sixth's "Thousand League Eyes," but rather it's the "Thousand League Hearing." He is able to create illusions using hypnosis granted by his diary. While trying to kill himself and Yukiteru, Yuno, and Tsubaki through the use of a bomb, Yuno manages to stop Yomotsu and he ends up killing only himself as the bomb explodes.

Its a great manga. I like the bomber. i dont know why but i prefer her to win!
oh yes, do u think there would be an anime to this?
P.S Is Yuno taller than Yuki? Some scences show he is taller. Or is it just the "camera" angle or Yuno just happened to bend her knees a little?
