this hasn't been locked yet?

anywho, its really good. of the survival style anime, this is the one that brought the theme to popularity anime wise.

if its the only anime you are going to watch, don't think it is worth it. but its was one of the best series during the broadcast period.

The first 18 or so episodes are complete garbage and then everything after that is great.

It's entertaining but if you think too hard about it you'll notice plenty of plotholes and problems. You know those shows that are a good watch when you want to just sit back and enjoy some entertainment after a long day; you don't want to think or anything? This is one of those shows.

The pure enjoyment I had with this show was from its crazy combo of Gore, fighting, the high stakes and once you find out what is going on and how purely insane Yano is. And the OVA really does nothing to explain anything. The ending in the show is still gives you all you need to know. I would say turn off your brain... grab the popcorn and enjoy the ride. Its in my top anime just for how its plays out and the pacing.

One of my favorite. Unlike a lot of people, I actually like the Main Character (Yukki), he's a little more realistic, and not that generic, super powerful, emotionless, badass, dude, which a lot of shows have.

How good is Mirai Nikki!? HOW GOOD IS MIRAI NIKKI!?

Alright here is how good Mirai Nikki is. Imagine the best anime you have ever seen. Now imagine an anime even better. That anime is not Mirai Nikki, however, Mirai Nikki exists somewhere between that anime, and the worst anime you have ever seen. In other words, it's decent.

The characters of Mirai Niki aren't that great or believable, so the anime isn't character driven really. It's a plot driven anime. And it does that REALLY well. But I am one of those people who believes character driven anime is the best of the best. Once you watch it once, you will probably never feel compelled to watch it again. I still recommend it though.

Don't waste your time watching this utter garbage.

Want an anime with a psychopath? A series that is a superb psychological thriller? Check out Monster. Excellent series.

I liked the manga for the first 5 volumes and stayed buying it until Tokyo Pop collapsed just because I didn't like not finishing a collection. At least Viz is picking it back up, but it'll be a long while waiting (and I'm not sure if they only got it back just for digital or not) =/.

I'd assume the anime gets a bit boring and predictable. I find it pretty hilarious remembering the start of the manga. In the first few chapters I saw people predicting the general ending the creator would go and it turned out pretty sure (apparently). The art style is nice and Yuno Gasai is pretty iconic. May as well watch if you need some yandere in your collection.

It's good fun. I wouldn't say great because there are so many plot holes and character issues, but I always thought it was incredibly fun to watch. Sit back, don't think, enjoy. Like Valvrave.

Bingo. Plot driven animes are really great some times even if they are full of wholes just for the ride. Future Diary had that in spades that the plot was very much dragging you along but its fun to just be along for the ride.

I could not finish it tbh. I was just tired of the psycho bitch and crybaby MC. I just read spoilers and shit to find out what happens at the end.
