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

with only 59ch, you can finish this roller coaster ride less than 5hours, and that's the best way to consume this manga. plot wise it is good, generally the sequence of events are understandable. however, if you like to sweat the small stuff you will not like this manga. theres a lot of unrealistic happening (within the frame of the manga's reality) such as 14 years old be very very good handling guns and knives without training, or bombers able to set up bombs so easily without anyone noticing. but regardless, the plot is good. i love the characters and the star of this series is of course the yandere yuno. she basically pull this series to a better and greater level of enjoyment through her obsession and craziness. yuki is a cry baby that spill tears in every panel but he have a certain 'shounentistic' charm with his ideal world vision and friendship declaration. the twist at the end is also surprising and make you sit up. and the ending is also fairly good.

all in all, this manga is definitely for anyone who like crazy characters and survival games. but for people who dont like unrealistic stuff (ie able to walk with severe blood loss....) give this a miss beacause theres a lot of stuff that just dont mesh.

A great reading.
The characters are interesting. With Yuno and Akise being both pretty amazing. And I liked Mao and Hinata. They both are so cute.
The plot is great, suspenful, a truly exiting and enjoyable ride!
And the end... well, its good. Maybe its not the ending that I wanted, but its good.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
I would wanted some MaoxHinata scene in the end... *pouts*
And of course, with Deus Ex Machine as a character. What kind of ending where you expecting? =D

If you want a entretaining, quite dark lecture, go and read. I loved every moment of it.

'Cuz you gotta be smoking something. Am I the only one who hated Yuno? It took me a few chapters to start rooting for that "frickin' prostitute" to die already.

MN is... flawed. I've heard a few people compare it to Death Note. It's a looooooot easier to read than DN, though. But it's not as intelligent/thought-out. It had a couple of interesting turns, but it was a pretty standard execution with an original idea. Don't regret reading it; will probably never re-read it.

Especially not since that phallus-gulping male entertainer is in it. HOW CAN YOU ROOT FOR SOMEONE THAT INSANE? Gasai Yuno should've commited suicide in chapter 1; a fitting, pathetic end for a pathetic, insane crybaby.

(Props to the mangaka for making a thoroughly unenjoyable character. It might sound counterintuitive, but it actually means he did good.)

the plot of the story was really good and the ending but , to tell the truth I'm actually gross out of some part. Mostly that yuno sign what a creepier. Still i only like 9 anyway and that other guy. So i really didn't care about the main characters.♥

The romance is FANTASTIC! Better than any shoujo out there.

The plot was really quite standard. It's a typical shounen manga, with one exception: the heroine. I love Yuno, her insanity and her obsessive love. The beautiful (albeit twisted) romance in this manga makes all other shoujo manga romances pale in comparison with this one. Sure Yukiteru doesn't deserve the brilliant Yuno, but in the end her love was requited. That's what counts.

Since the romance was so fantastic, I'll rate it 10/10. Also a 10/10 for Yuno's sociopathy.

I didn't really ask for happy ending seriously. Author just stopped going any further after 1st world Yuno dies before Yukki. Because at this point in time both parties didn't have any regrets at all but yeah it was sad to see Yuki wandering through space for 10.000 years with sadness in his heart without Yuno. But following storylines become so far-fetched like Yuno friggin destroying that ball with her hammer. If that was the case then they should have done this from beggining rather than going through so many trouble, anyways. In short if you are looking for manga where yandere character shines then imo it is best manga and Yuno is the best yandere character you ever ask for. I only enjoyed this manga because Yuno was there as main character. I still think Yukki is still coward and still haven't manned up yet in my eyes. Too bad Yuno had crush on that kind of loser. I would be here for her all time but anyways. Also Uryuu Miene is my second favorite character. She is one hell of strong female character in this story and has most sad background and past. I'm still in confusion and can't pick up wheter my favorite character is Uryuu and Yuno. If you like the Uryuu then I'm sure you will enjoy the side story as well. Oh by the way why do I get this felling everytime I see Akise and he making me remember Kouru from Evangelion? He was also so cool character. I would be even gar for him if there was someone like him in the real life. Jokes aside it was good read but medicore. You shouldn't get your hopes up but I'm sure its going to be really popular series since its also animated recently on TV. And Yuno will be my eternal waifu for sure and Uryuu. FLYIN BABIES FTW!

Hmmm.....I don't like. This genre is not right for me. I felt like I was reading Elfen Lied, where everyone is super cute and happy, and the next moment super cute and psychotic (which scares the crap out of me). So if you don't want to read stuff like that, drop this instantly before you regret it.

The story starts off With Amano Yukiteru, who have a difficult time making friends and thinks himself a bystander as he writes stuff that happens around him in his cellphone diary. His imaginary friend, Deus Ex Machina, who is apparently is the Lord of Time and Space, decided to help him out by giving "the future" to him. Apparently, thinking this was a joke since there's no way his imaginary friend is actually real, he decided to brush if off until his diary began recording future events. He was suddenly thrust in a game along with 11 other participates, and forced to compete for the title of Deus's successor and become god.

And so....the chapter starts off weird. So I was thinking to myself, "Ok, it'll get better later on." It did not get better for me. Yuno Gasai, the main character's love interest (or more of a stalker) is just plain crazy. She's cute and then the next moment, she's psychotic a crybaby like everyone say. I don't know if he did mature later on in the story or he became kinda psychotic as well. Other characters is ok compare to them and you'll grow to like them. There is also 2 other side volumes dedicated to the side characters' stories.

Story pacing is fast. There is no fillers so it keep the audience's attention at all time.

I enjoyed the story. But I know for sure I'm not rereading this again 'cause this genre doesn't fit well for me. However, I will rate this high because of the storyline and how well it was done.

Lovable yandere

Psychological insight into the protagonists' mind was not quite satisfying for me, but given the targeted audience it was more than acceptable. It was truly painful to watch Yukiteru's behavior, mainly his naivety, and I could not stand Yuno suffering because of that. I am glad he matured a little and became a tolerable character (though he surely took his time).
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
I would not say it directly connects to maturity, yet I was truly happy when he started killing his friends, be it rightfully or not.
Because I did not care about anything besides Yuno living (she IS the main character, who needs Yukiteru anyway... well, yes, Yuno).

Story was relatively good, with unexpected twists, but I cannot find much value in it without the yandere girl, as she was (in my eyes) driving force of this series.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Though I started to like the 9th later in the story.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
I quite of expected that Yukiteru will be the only one (or one of a few) to survive (unfortunately), so as saddened as I was, I found myself waiting for Yuno's death. But a happy end? Yes, it is great that Yuno survived and seems to be really happy, however I cannot help but feel that the happy end was somehow... forced and unfitting? That is right - too many dead people came back to life.

Imo this is a rlly good read.... most ppl find it pretty confusing cuz there seems to be a lot of details especially at the end(dont want to spoil anything), so you shouldn't stop reading cuz it gets confusing, this manga is probably one of the best reads yet and has a lot of suspense. The Yandere gets pretty hectic too ^^
