    An anime worth watching!!!
    I've watched The Future Diary when I first started getting into the anime scene. This anime further my addiction into anime. How did it do that? By being dang good. In addition to being a f***** up anime to that I would compare something like Akame Ga Kill or even Angel Beats. This anime will leave you wanting more just like those two anime I have just listed. Do yourself a favor and watch it.

    This series will bend you mind and make you love a psycho... :)
    This show is well known to have one of the most obsessed psychopath girlfriends in anime to-date. Her volume dial is always at 11. Willing to kill anyone that gets between her and her man. While technically not the main character she drowns out everyone else all the way through this roller coaster of murderous intent. Always leaving you in a constant state of "WTF just happened!", gripping the ...

    F**ked Up (In A Good Way)
    Note: This review is based on the entire show of "The Future Diary/Mirai Nikki." I watched the entire show on Hulu a month prior to this review, so I did not use illegal streaming. I wanted to clear that up since I am making a detailed review so soon after the show was released on Crunchyroll.

    I watched The Future Diary after skimming through Hulu. At the time, a month before writing this ...

    The Definition of Yandere
    If you don't know what the term above means, it was popularized by this anime and School Days. The difference between this and Schools Days is Future Diary (aka: Mirai Nikki) is actually a good show.

    It's one of those classics that all anime fans need to watch. It's referenced a lot in other anime and has played an impactful role for the anime medium as a whole.

    I didn't fall in love with ...

    Only one decent character
    The entire series relies far too heavily on yandere-chan. Everyone else is trash, static, and forgettable. Convenient plot devices abound, and half of the more emotion-laden content seems added just for cringe factor. Save your time and watch something else.

    Interesting plot and characters
    Some anime are fun to watch because they provide a nice, fun, uplifting blend of action, romance, and comedy that just leaves a warm, happy feeling. This is not one of those anime, yet it's still one of my all-time favorites. Why?

    The premise of dairies which predict the future is somewhat innovative, but that alone would not be enough to tell a story this good. Where Future Diary really ...

    Do Not Be Mislead!!!!!!!
    Do not let how the title sounds throw you off, this anime is nothing that you would expect but in a very amazing way. If you enjoy a deep dark twisted story with a lot of action and being mind f****d well then this show is a must for you. I REPEAT, YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT WATCH IT RIGHT NOW.

    Twisted in a good way
    On par with Danganronpa for making you ask why. This anime falls in line with several other really good shows (Btoom!, Danganronpa, Akame Ga Kill, etc.). It does a very good job of getting you attached to the characters and letting you know what makes them tick, how they feel, and makes the cast feel varied and semi-realistic. The story line of the show, also, does a very good job of pushing ...

    Freaking Epic as Hell
    This one really was way out of my comfort zone (I really like Shoujo). That being said, this was freaking epic. The animation is great. There is some seriously messed up stuff that will have you questioning how you would handle things in said situation. There are is also a very twisted but real romance in this one. I really recommend it to everyone. I have seen it multiple times and find it ...

    One of My Favorite Anime.....Finally on Crunchyroll! (Now we prey for K-On! to be on here...)
    I first watched this anime YEARS ago. I watched it over again and watched the OVA (unfortunately not on Crunchyroll) right after and I cannot tell you how much I LOVE this show. I own it on DVD (anime in the USA is super expensive on DVD so realize how important this is to me). Seriously....it's a must watch! I'm so glad it's finally on Crunchyroll so I can rewatch for the maybe 5th or 6th time ...
