Yukiteru "Yuki" Amano is a loner who never really interacts with people and prefers writing a diary on his cell phone with his imaginary friends Deus Ex Machina, the God of Time and Space, and Muru Muru, Deus's servant.
However, Yuki soon learns that Deus is real when he makes Yuki participate in a battle royal with eleven other people. Within this "Diary Game," the contestants are given special diaries that can predict the future, with each diary having unique features that gives them both advantages and disadvantages.
The rules of the game are simple: the contestants have 90 days to find and kill all the other contestants, and the last one standing will become the new God of Time and Space

Honestly I don't even know why I read it. I wish I could take back all that time I spent reading it. I mean sure it had it's amazing moments but what I was annoyed about was
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
the fact that main characters did random and pointless things while running away from danger. I mean really, is there not a better time to kiss or propose somebody? Like don't even get me started on how stupid that was.
And another thing, the characters emotions aren't even displayed properly. I mean, at one point yukki goes like " I have to save my friends." And then when convenient, he kills them?! Like Bro get your priorities straight. And yuno. Oh damn. I'll have such a long lists of complains for her that it's pointless writing about. Yeah she's supposed to be a Yandere but she should stay one till the end.

And the end? Oh man. I haven't seen crap like that in ages.

On the whole, it was sad and good and had lots of potential. LOTS. But all of that was wasted.

You can go ahead and read this manga if you like eccentric characters, useless explanations and whole lot of killing. But be warned, it's a crazy story about crazy people.

He's my favorite character. And I really like a lot of the other characters too. But i didn't really like either of the main ones. Yuno was too scary for me and the other boy was.... eh.

I love the story because Yuno is the reason why Mirai Nikki is created......
I hate Yukiteru Amano cuz' he's not just ugly as if he possessed a body of a 12 yr old child....I REALLY LOOK DOWN ON HIM! WHY DID YUNO FALL IN LOVE HIM .Yuno is a blind bat!!

I'm giving it a 9. I don't really have any type of review other then I read this manga at least 3 times and followed it from the very beginning. I have to say for some reason I do love it a lot. It's not even the best manga out there but I can't seem to give it an 8 and I feel like if I give it a 10 I would be giving it a lot more credit than what it's worth. I recommend it to anyone

Fairly decent, despite plot holes galore, sudden iddqd-style levelups passed off as "character development", general disregard for most piles of corpses left behind despite police and wannabe-detective characters present & highly interested in occasional random incidents, and occasional half-hearted attempts to use hints of sexual abuse as fanservice

...most of the series is carried entirely on the thin shoulders of one literally axe-crazy stalker girl. Everything else is rather unoriginal.

I'm watching MN anime and I have mixed feelings; the hype about Mirai Nikki(from one person) is a let down I actually thought everything will be a death note-like psychological where I'm pulled in from the very first episode, sadly that's not the case, everything is anti-climatic they never built on nothing I feel that Yuno (and other characters), alone just carried the series that's why I'm like should I read the the manga.

Some people have posted that they read this manga before it was popular, which is why it irritates them that people think it's not good - what a load of rubbish. Reading something before someone else doesn't give you sole rights to everyone's opinion. People will think it's good, because the idea is really good. Yuno is a well-written character with a wicked back-story; Aru is just completely cool; Ninth is bad-ass as can be; Seventh are a decent couple and have values that are non-existent throughout the rest of the story... On the other hand, people will slate it and think it's awful, because, despite how much the 'fans' disagree, there are so many pointless actions that could have been avoided; the main character is a pathetic, miserable, contradictory, waste-of-space, heart-wrenchingly disgusting sack of sh*t who should never have been introduced to the story in the first place. Having to see his face in this story makes me sad, and makes me want to burn the pages he's on. Amano Yukiteru is worthless and doesn't have a clue as to what he's doing. He whimpers, he cries, he butchers his friends and then tells Yuno not to kill Aru? Not to kill her past self? Despite the fact that he's just slain people he's allegedly considered his 'first friends', just because of what? Siding with Yuno despite the amount of screwed up sh*t she's done to him? What a mess... and then there's the people who see all of his ridiculously absurd antics and still try to help him as if he's the only 'savior' despite the fact that everyone else has more chance of getting things done than he does? Why is this 'main character must be 'THE ONE'' trip always so over-enforced? Frankly, it's sickening. The person who created the Mirai Nikki storyline should be heralded as a genius. The person who created the character Amano Yukiteru and all subsequent interactions and causalities relating to him show shrivel in a corner in shame and not return until they've found a way to right this calamitous wrong. Read Maoh: Juvenile Remix - that's a REAL psychological series with a REAL story and REAL main character.

This is one of those mangas that you can't tell if you like or dislike which is not surprising in psychological mangas. At some points you'll hate everyone, then you'll start liking them again, then you'll wonder why the hell you're still reading this, then you'll realize it's pretty good.

It's definitely interesting, unpredictable and a total mind-f*ck, but damn, it was hard to get through sometimes. Not because it's bad but at some points I felt like this just wasn't for me.

I think something has to be wrong with you if you truly enjoyed this from the bottom of your heart it was depressing, sick, and totally f*cked up, but if you don't appreciate how well-writting and absolutely crazy this story is than you are even more damaged, mate. Brilliantly psychotic. A "good" read. Give it a try, you'll be a good way...maybe.

This will be amongst my top ten mangas of all time. To be honest, I thought it was going to be "Horror manga where everyone dies every other chapter" and it kinda was. But let me go into detail a bit before you judge this manga.

We have Yuuki, our standard protagonist. Throughout the manga his personality is quite consistent, it changes realistically (for the most part) after a traumatic event and he also has his flaws, making me angry when he made bad decisions and rooting for him during life threatening situations. This is what a story is SUPPOSED to do. It makes you empathisize with the characters and this manga pulled it off perfectly.

Then there's Yuno. I can't really make any judgements about her because I haven't really read a whole lot of yandere manga, but I'm pretty sure she fits that description well.She's psychotic and extremely cute when she doesn't "break". Quite honestly, she's my favorite character in the entire story. There's a couple twists and turns with her character, which truely surprised me.

The story itself was excellent, although I quite frequently got lost. It seems the author doesn't know how to do transitions well, because I kept thinking I missed reading critical information. It explains things really well, it's just that I got disoriented. In hindsight it's not that big a problem.

The ending tricked me! It was surprising and I loved it.
