Mirai Nikki

The most recent anime I've watched is Mirai Nikki, which means "future diary" in English. I can't remember where I first heard of it, but I think it was one of those suggestions down the bottom of the page when I watched Death Note. Anyway, I got the anime off my friend and I found a chance to watch it. It was...pretty amazing. I thought I wouldn't like the art style or the story... but strangely the art was tolerable and I didn't mind the story.

The plot in general is about this boy who writes a diary with his phone, and one day his phone writes his diary for him, in advance, telling him what happens into the future. He can then base his actions on known outcomes to then change that future into something that benefits him. Then it turns out that he's not the only one with a future diary, and there are 12 diary users in total. I think the selling point of the whole plot was that they diary users had to kill each other, and the last man standing gets to become the God of Time and Space.

For the love of Anime

These past few weeks, I've been indulging myself with different genres of anime. I can tell you that my old self has gotten me again. This was me way back when I was still in elementary)">

So let me get to the point. I will be posting my top 5 anime that I've been watching recently. I'm not a spoiler, so don't budge. I'll be just stating my own opinion on each series. Now here it goes.

Dat Rainbow (It'sh Sho Intenshe!!)

This is from Bakemonogatari, right?And did y'all spot the Double Rainbow reference?If not, I'm disappointed.And you probably didn't spot the Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei references a few posts back either, or the Oreimo ones, or the Kuroshitsuji ones.If that's the case, I'll be horribly disappointed in worldwide youth culture.Ya gotta be able to handle hard-core references!!It's practically a requirement!


Mirai Nikki

Mirai Nikki (lit. Future Diary) is the pinnacle of twisted Anime by far and was one of the most notable Anime titles to air in 2011. This spiral of madness has a runtime of 26 episodes and is rated "R" for reasons that I will get to later on. I did a mistake of recommending this to a good friend of mine, , without watching it since I thought it had an interesting premise from all the reviews and screenshots that I came across in my daily surfings of the internet. I have never regretted recommending anything before this. Ever.

Anime Mondays #29

Let's not talk about the time we didn't have, let's just talk about the time we have, shall we?Life has been pretty crazy.Two weeks ago, I was having one of the greatest concert experiences I have ever had, and last weekend I was at Comicon where I discovered the joys of wearing a Pikachu costume.Lots of Ash, even a Team Rocket, but Pokemon?There weren't a whole lot, if any.It was stupid fun, but I only went for Saturday and Sunday, and I feel like I could have used the other two days to get the full experience.Anyway, we're here to talk about anime, and it's not a lot, but I tried.Also, this post has a surprise inside, so you know what to do!

All images are from , and there are spoilers listed up to the episodes below!

Future Diary First Impressions

I am taking a break my Endless 8 marathon to bring you my first impressions of Future Diary. Even though many have praised the series, it is that time again. Time to prove that I have an opinion of my own. I must warn you: my reaction is not as good as my peers, and I have often been looked at askew for going against the grain. Still, I feel I need to speak my piece, no matter what others may think.

First 5 and a half minutes, and I'm totally lost. The opening scene has this Yuki kid OD-ing on cyanide, and this Yuno girl looking him over. The theme song feels like some sort of maniacal Hans Zimmer piece, and there is an alarming amount of black, white, and red.
