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

the story is lame, the characters are boring, everything seems bland, except...

for yuno, this insane girl, is obsessively in love with the protagonist and her insanity is not typical goofy shonen crap. Its crazy, people are constantly dying due to her lack of morals.

seriously, if she ever dies in this series... i would stop reading it since this character is the only thing that makes this story stand out from the rest.

i freakin hate that main character yuki... all he can do is hide behind yuno and then get mad at her.. and when he was fightin the 7ths, he didnt even help out. damn he deserve to die.. also, hes a god damn moron... totally.... i mean.... he cant do a thing and dont listen to others and dont believe in yuno..

yuno is awesome, totally my love for this manga... man, she should just kill yuki once and for all... it pisses me off with yuki bein alive..

overall, this manga pwns... and since yuno is awesome, it deserve a 10.

The premise is ridiculous but as you get sucked into Mirai Nikki's world, you will find it to be far more enjoyable than some diary mobile phones would make it seem to be.

Yuuki is your average loser, nothing worth noting about him. Yuno on the other hand is about the incarnation of the ultimate Yandere. She seems like a nice girl but she's a complete psycho, her love goes as far as chaining Yuuki to a chair so she wouldn't lose him to someone else, even if he can't stay conscious. She's reasonably smart and powerful though, just obsessed with the protagonist to go as far as killing friends of his just to be with him or to keep him from sustaining even the slightest injuries.

Overall the story won't blow you away (so far), but it's definitely one of the more enjoyable mangas I've read lately.

I've just kept reading through newest releases so hope for discover the main female character, Yuno, is good or bad. Maybe the truth is that she really has mental problem, her crazy thought about love, or else she has some bigger plan from the start. Hope she will change. but that is what make Future Diary is interesting, leading character doesn't show nice feeling for reader from begin/

wow, extremely interesting idea.
On another note, yuno is so hardcore, most interesting female lead ever, regardless of media. i wish my girlfriend was crazy like that and wielded axes at scrubs

When i first looked at this manga i didn't almost read but when i started i couldn't stop and went through it in a day, thats how hooked you will get. The plot is awesome and twisted and will catch you of by surprise, one of the best pshcyological manga other than Death Note i have enjoyed. It's a great read, i recommend you start reading.

{I'm so addicted to this series so i have to download raw into my collection... Don't know why u ppl have to compare it with Death note, they'r completely different.

Is there a girl swinging the axe around in Death note? come on!!!

Oh, Sakae Esuno's artwork improved a lot since his last series, too.

I agree! -__-

in this manga there isn't a notebook that kill people, nor a super-genius that is trying to save the world.

This is a great little manga. Other posters are right that it's sort of like Death Note, in that an ordinary object is turned into a powerful weapon, and there's a lot of second-guessing, deceit, and an element of psychological thriller. But there's one thing this series has that Death Note doesn't: Mirai Nikki doesn't rely on its protagonists being impossibly smart or making insanely complicated plans that just somehow work when the plot needs them to.

Oh, and of course it's got Yuno, who is simultaneously cute, frightening beyond words, and one of the best characters of any manga series. Even if this descends into Death Note levels of mediocrity, I will keep reading to see what happens to Yuno.

PS: boomstick doesn't know what he's talking about. The date given at the beginning of each chapter makes it clear this story is taking place over the span of a few months at most, not years.

I can see where people think it might be like death note, in the way that the people need to find each, ect, but it reminds me a little more of a combo of Liar Game (where a person who is really superior in the game protects someone who sucks at it, but has really good morals) and maybe Anne Freaks.
I really like it though. Its pretty violent, but not too gruesome. I don't really think the plans and way people think is as indepth as Liar Game or Death Note, but it still good in its own way, and has good amount of characters and interesting story.

one word: awesome! never have i read a manga where the lead female is a psychopathic, axe weilding stalker intent on killing anything that tries to harm her 'beloved'. A truly sick and twisted love... and i just love it!!

Totally unpredictable and a must read.
