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

Story skips all over the place, main character is unlikable, and the female protagonist, while more interesting than the main character, is overrated in other comments.

The real thriller

Imo, this is a much compelling thriller than death note. The psychological factors are there, but with less dialogue and more action.

After reading some comments here, it's kinda true that the main reason that this series is so exciting is just because of one, mysterious and deep character. However, I'd say that the character is so damn good and that's sufficient to make this manga a worth read.

Highly recommended by me, a Death Note fan

The world is filled with good Ideas for the different mediums society presents to us.

The premise of Mirai Nikki seems ideal for a manga format, Highschool kids with powers that can predict the future from various prespectives and they have to kill everyone in order to "win" the "game".

It's a nice freshening idea but the author is to stuck to the rules imposed by the genres it follows and clearly doesn't know how to handle the potential of its own idea.

The story is meshed with the typical love story and one sided characters, predictable plot twists and the visual information is nothing more than poor. The author could explore the psychological side of each character and make it more of a mental manga like death note but no..he drives himself constantly into mindless action scenes that seem so forced from the beginning.

The main character is a cheap imitation of Shinji Ikari but with no background or charisma to be so.
The only trump of the manga is Gasai Yunno a character so insane, so unpredictable, so pragmatic that is just fun watching her make the weirdest (but best) decisions in the worst situations.

I love this series. The plot is interesting and of course, what made Mirai Nikki differents, is the characters ( Come on, what kind of heroine is Yuno! ^____^ ) I especially love Yuno - really unpredictable (look in ch 24 oh myy it was a real shock!) and i like Yuki too. I see that he's not going to be a loser forever, so there's a development in the plot. And it reminds me of Death Note too, i mean how the Yuki use Yuno to protect him but at least Yuki didn't go too far as Raito did. Hope to read the continuation soon ^^

its a bit crazy but thats the point that makes me can't stop reading it.

Well I put this in the "anyone reading this forum but it goes unseen so here it is again.........Yuki's gotten cool now so don't hate him (cough)o0james0o(cough)

Ok Mirai Nikki
Normally first impressions are important and this didnt jump out at me but i wanted to carry on reading it. So i did and everyone who has read i knows that in the beginning of the story Yuki is an absolute p*ssy who cried and hid alot of the time with no self confidence. He didn't take the game seriously and his naivity puts him in serious danger and most probably would be dead if not for our next main character being Yuno.
She is the single reason why Yuki is alive. While being traumatized by an unloved childhood when she decides to protect Yuki because of her undying love for him she's serious. Willingly able to kill anyone who might be a threat to Yuki or their possibilty of getting "tied together" on the 28th of july 20XX. But she expresses her love in the strangest way by going to extremes such as
Spoiler (highlight to view)
chaining up Yuki to keep him safe.
Her quick thinking and quick doing style make her formidable.

Spoiler (highlight to view)
My point being that lots of people hate Yuki cos he was a whimp BUT in the presently most recent chapter "36" after discovering that both of his parents have been killed he snaps and kills about 4 people and as he appears in the last few pages he looks cool swearing to become the god. I believe that Yuki has now become a "man" so to speak and has left his p*ssy attitude behind him.

I don't know about you but i'm really looking forward to the next chapter and if you haven't read this or started and stopped please give it a chance because its everything i could have ever hoped for in a manga.

10/10 read it

I Thought This is the Best of Years Manga

I started reading this title since last year. I left off at chapter 23 and thought it was quite a happy ending, not expecting it to continue because I never pay attention to the text "Next Diary: The Blank". After one year, I am completely addicted to this and read it over and over again so many times. Suggest everyone should at least read it up to chapter 36. If this get licensed by Tokyopop then I am willing to purchase it, but it might take them a long time to even release the first volume in the United States. Man, so slow.

Yuno is the best character in Mirai Nikki, her insanity is top notch and makes Mirai Nikki so much fun to read. At one point of reading Mirai Nikki I consciously wished to have a girl like Yuno at my side...and still do. She's just so awesome. Hope to read more chapters soon. smile
