Made a search but it seems there is no thread for this anime/manga... =O So here it is, want to know if you guys have watch/read it and what you think.

Warning: This anime is rated Age 17+ it seems, it's not a cute anime for kids ^^ It contains a lot of murders, blood, nudity and is twisted in many ways. You are warned =P

Manga cover:

Is it a love anime? A funny anime? Don't let some images fool you!...



...because it gets bloody and crazy
Spoiler:





Let's try to avoid major spoilers in the discussion or use the spoiler tag Happy

I heard about it some time ago like it was a bit similar to Death Note so I finally decided to check it and I watched the anime recently. Have to admit I expected a much more "normal" story but it got quickly twisted. I think the story could have been better at some point by using the diaries powers but most of the time it was pretty easy/boring. I think the story could have been much "smarter" but nonetheless using the cellphones to tell the future is a very intersting concept.

The main character is... well honestly I found him annoying most of the times, never can make up his mind and is weak or maybe it's just me. Of course it's part of the story and his personality ^^ Then there is...
Spoiler:
Yuno... Yeah... Well let's just say I didn't expect what was coming with her lol  Scared  Scared . An interesting character to say the least! My thoughts about her always went to "awww she is adorable!" to "omfg kill that crazy psychopath ffs!"... "awww she can be so nice"... "don't trust her she is crazzzzzzzzzzy"... "wow that's sexy why must she be such a psycho"... ^^  White Flag But in the end she is what made the story and it was interesting

The others characters were good too, lots of surprises.

What surprised me the most is the end, not sure exactly...
Spoiler:
when things start to get out of hand but I was expecting a much more "normal" ending and not this crazy snowball effect with dimensions travel and all but I was a pleasant surprise, it gave the whole story a deeper meaning and was not just the kill fest with a winner in the end. I mean obviously Deus is the god of space and time but I wasn't expecting world 1, 2, 3 ^^

Murmur is awesome  LOL 



All in all it was a lot of fun and liked it, did not regret watch it even if I still wonder how they can come up with such twisted things lol

The OP/ED songs are good and suit the anime well IMO. Here they are if you want to check them, OP 1, OP 2 then ED 1, ED 2:









Anyway just wanted to see if some people have seen it and what they think ^_^

To finish a funny meme I found while searching some images lol. Only funny if you know the meme and watch Mirai Nikki obviously =P :

Mirai Nikki! this was quite famous back then - 2011 I think.. until SAO came along.. (SAO SUCKS IMO - over hyped piece of ****)

anyway, watched it back then and got hooked because of the unique characters, story and ofcourse YUNO - the yandere queen. at first I was creeped out by her but as time goes on I've grown to like her - mainly because of her clingy persona, devotion to the protagonist and her common sense. when you think about it every antagonist is far worst than her.

and that plot twist at the end.. who knew? xD

I didn't watch Mirai Nikki, I read the manga so I don't know how similar/different it is from the anime :>

This IS the manga read if anyone wants to know what a yandere is.  It has a good plot, interesting characters and oh my- gore everywhere. But the protagonist is such a coward D; Yuki got on my nerves too just because he wouldn't do anything! Mirai Nikki is one of those mangas you have to read until the end to fully understand what's going and why it's going on; but as Crei said before, that plot twist though xD

Just out of curiosity,
Spoiler:
Did anyone else feel sorry for Yuno?

I don't know about the manga/anime difference just watched the anime but I guess they must mainly be the same, I don't see how or why they would change important things in such a story. Maybe the anime is less gory?

About your question:

Spoiler:
I did sometimes of course but it's hard to feel sorry when the crazy Yuno kicks in ^^ But yeah when you see her in the cage and all it's difficult not to :/

I watched this anime a month ago. The idea for the story was really good however I haven't received what I expected. I struggled watching it. Mainly the fact that I didn't like the main characters. Yuno isn't pretty for me. From the first episode I didn't like her anymore... Yuki is a loser. When he started kill, I like him Wink After all, I recommend, because it is unusual anime. I won't compare, because I don't know a similar title. 

Fav character: Minene Uryuu, because she fight to the end of your case. She don't give to anyone.

I've watched this anime like a year ago, and it was really fun? idk how should I say it.

but to be honest, I just hate how weak Yuki is I mean he'll even panic just even holding a gun. Orz and of course, who would have thought Akise is......... if you know what I mean, I didn't expected that one, I used to have a crush on him :3


but surely I like Uryuu and of course Yuno <3 if the ring on her eyes changes be aware Tongue

and too much plot twists that sometimes it will take time to absorb it all stress

and the ending it was really really a twist, you wouldn't expect it at all.

I never read the manga, but I see the anime complete.
At the first I think the anime will be more... well... just action but not really bloody or deadly... But I like it so much, I never liked the protagonist, but a lot of charas are really cool.... Yuno, Minene, MuruMuru, Akise......
The story of Yuno makes me surpise a lot xD And the ending was so unexpected and chaotic XD

It s a quite good anime. Yuno's existence makes all of the blood looks like roses.
