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

Just finished it. Definitely too fast.

I found it enjoyable and the premise is interesting, but... ISN'T IT TOO FAST?

I like fast-paced stories a lot, but this is just too much. Characters get introduced into the story at blinding speed and they get killed off almost just as fast. It's just too fast for me to appreciate the characters. To make things worse, character development isn't impressive, either. Pretty much the entire manga is focused on Yuno's character, and Yuki's character is only fleshed out in the latter half. The other characters pretty much get fleshed out just before they die.

The plot also seems jumpy, and the speed at which the story is told isn't helping the cohesion one bit. And as someone mentioned earlier, deus ex machinas are aplenty, especially at the closing chapters. It would have been okay if the deus exes were limited to the future diaries, but... yeah.

In the end, I think that Mirai Nikki is a tad too overrated. You might be able to overlook the flaws if you enjoy your standard shounen fare, but if you're looking for something a bit more mature (no, gore, nudity and sex does not make a manga mature) this isn't it.

But hey, props to Esuno Sakae for making me read this to the end.

Man this manga was EXCELLENT! It has it all! The plot was so new, so unpredictable, so riveting. I loved reading it - it was so much fun to read. Not cliche in the slightest , so refreshing. A truly great manga about time manipulation. I know people gave this manga lower scores because Yukki was seen as a "wimp" but I feel that everyone has this messed up notion that the protagonist should be some unrealistic amazing person who gets stronger with every battle and has guts and wisdom oozing out every orifice of his body. Yukki was BELIEVABLE. That's what I loved about him and all the other characters of this manga. Even in such a made up world, they're motivations and their stories were unique and enjoying to watch. If Yukki was the protagonist everyone wanted, this manga might have turned into a boring cliche shounen piece of crap. Thanks to the mangaka for producing this manga in such a great way, it was a really good read. x)

I was surprised it turned out much better than I expected. Its fairly light and is a really fast read which I liked.

Like other reviewers have mentioned Yuno is a pretty awesome character. Yandere characters are often presented either as a bit goofy and unhinged or completely psychotic. Yuno is occasionally funny but is mainly scary psychotic and strangely sympathetic. You end up rooting for Yuno, which is a pretty awesome achievement by the author. As you can see by other reviewers comments, everyone loves Yuno.

I think Yuki gets unfairly bashed by some reviewers. He's not a wuss 100% of the time, more like 75% of the time lol. 1st in his defense he's a pretty lonely kid, who's never had friends and comes from a broken home. His folks are never around, so he's never had a role model for bravery. He only knows how to protect himself by not being involved and living in his fantasy world. This is how his character was written, if you are looking for a character that constantly betters himself then read Kenichi (HSDK), if you want continuous powerups against bigger and badder bosses then read Dragonball or Bleach. Yuki is a flawed and immature character (he's a kid not even in High School) that sometimes acts bravely and other times acts cowardly. He sometimes makes mistakes and bad decisions and sometimes good ones. 2nd he's not always a wimp. He takes down some major characters himself, rescues Yuno, and even shoots some people. 3rd and most importantly what some don't realize is that if Yuki was a badass he wouldn't need Yuno! If he was stronger he might not want her around and Yuno wouldn't have a chance to shine. I mean part of what's hilarious here is that
Spoiler (highlight to view)
the guy has to keep around and rely on his psychotic stalker!
It wouldn't happen if Yuki was too strong willed of a character and it would change the relationship and role of Yuno.

My complaints about this manga is that there are some weaknesses in character motivations and backgrounds. Really the strongest fleshed out characters are Yuki and Yuno. Some of the other characters are thin and not well developed. Some situations are glossed over or rushed thru and there are a few plot holes.

As I was reading this I thought the Manga might be a 7 or 7.5, but it got better especially towards the end with some twists raising my final score. The very final end was a bit of typical shonen ending which I didn't think they needed and maybe took a bit away from everything. All that said I think the final 10-15 chapters were pretty strong and raised my score to an 8. I recommend it.

wow. After reading I can say that the end sure wrapped things up (if not too well) for Yuki. It was honestly way more than he deserved. Why wasn't I selected instead to be the 1st, if he qualified. lol
That was the first manga I've read with such an unbelievably spineless crybaby protagonist, though arguably you could almost say Yuno was the main character seeing as how I endured till the end for her.
I hated Yuki. Stupid wimp. He was cool for a total of 2 chapters max. Yuno on the other hand was a much more interesting character. Damn it... this series had potential but just wasn't carried out too well to make a solid manga. I want to rate high, but Esuno put me through Yuki's bullshit a;ldkhga;ldskhfpoweiu
The romance and paradoxical stuff could've made an awesome manga, but I guess "silly" was more of what Esuno was going for... :/

that YUKITERU is so f**king annoying - he cries every 2-3 pages .... WTH with a main character like him - it's just so annoying.
Other than that, it's an interesting story. I'm only at chapter 5 right now so maybe that'll change *and i'm giving this series a try about 4-5 more chapters or so because I do hope the main male char like Yukiteru will get better or else i'll stop this series just because I couldn't stand him crying every single minute.
Right you can say it's refreshing blah blah but even as loser as other main character in other harem series they don't cry every single 2 pages. T_T" I'm not expecting him to be very strong or anything but at least keep his tears don't overflow like some crybaby like Nobita in Doraemon. Urgh

This is one of the few mangas I completed without getting bored at all. I usually don't like mangas with much dialog instead I'm more into mangas which you see more of the action than read it. But this manga greatly have both of it, it has action and much dialog which is perfect for me.

I loved the idea of having a future diary to survive on, in a survive game.
Spoiler (highlight to view)
And how desperate everyone was and how they formed alliance and there after betray each others.

I totally love the characters, and even if the main character Yukiteru is a wimp, so is he perfect as the main character in just this version of manga. The heroine Yuno is totally wonderful! I seriously love yanderes, which makes me a fan of Yuno too. Then there are more characters too, but it will spoil everything if I write about those too.

Could have been done a bit better, but it's still amazing. Good luck if you're just picking it up, I reckon this is one of those that are better being read monthly as they are released.

Good action, compounded by a good plot. The characters are a bit odd, but you gotta remember that they were chosen for not being normal (what kind of normal person would be any good as god?)

Also, I recommend that if you read this, you should read mirai nikki mosaic when you get past around the halfway mark. It fleshes out one of the characters. It's not essential, but it adds a lil more depth without slowing down the main series.

This is... very strange. None of the characters or the story make sense. It could've been done so much better. But I'm still reading it because I like some aspects of it. Finding out where Yuno and Amano will end up... and such...

Mirai Nikki plays with one of media's most used device: diaries. These diaries shows the future as seen and interpreted by the owner. Scary, huh? Not enough? Let's make it that if your diary is destroyed you die too. More? OK, so let's have twelve people kill each other by using those diaries. You become God if you ever win. Still lousy? How about that psychotic girlfriend of yours isn't who you think she is.....

A mix of horror and drama. Death Note meets Gantz in this action thriller that will change your views of that small phone you carry around....

Hey! You got a message! Make sure it ain't your last!
