I loved this anime. It is one of my favourites, tied with Death Note and Kuroshitsuji. The storyline is amazing. Most of the characters are extremely well-developed, going into their dreary pasts. It is extremely violent, but the violence corresponds with the storyline and isn't just thrown in there. This is a plus for me, since I appreciate violent series. It put me through a rollercoaster, killing off one favourite character after the next in the most gruesome ways possible. This anime takes huge twist towards the end, changing the atmosphere of the anime completely. I didn't necessarily like the change, since it lightened the dark series I'd come to love.
As a naturally morbid person, I found myself cheering for characters when they started killing people or defending themselves, because I was so into the show. I did root for a lot of people to die, encouraging other characters to kill them when they had the chance. It was kind of like watching a very deadly sport. You choose your favourite team, and they either win or get eliminated. That may sound demented, but this is a demented show. Again, the ending was a bit cheery, but besides that, I found this to be a delightfully dark, twisted, and violent anime.
I've never been so disinterested watching an anime in my whole life. Afar from the bad character development and overall interactions between them, the whole show just felt unrealistic and unauthentic to me. One of those examples Is the death occurance of Yuki's loved ones and major characters around him following the raction to their deaths. The whole execution of scenes was just awful. I'm not even gonna get into personality of the characters which left me with a massive headache.
For me,the only highlight of the show was when Akise kissed Yuki tbh.There are a few characters which had interesting characteristics and backgrounds in my opinion but that was washed away with the dumb storyline.
Overall the plot of the show is very interesting. Thats the only reason I'm giving it a 2 out of 10.
My anime reviews are always simple, short and straight-forward and is 100% spoilers-free.

Mirai Nikki or The Future Diary is a masterpiece. The action, drama, horror, mystery, romance are all blended into a single entity. Mirai Nikki takes the the horror and psychological genres into a whole new level. Mirai Nikki is worth your time, patience, electric bills, laptop batteries and your brain cells. Make sure that your brain are still intact and still sane after watching such insanity and epic wooping action scenes.
I don't even know what exactly made me watch this series. It was fresh shit back then and submitted description was giving me idea its some high school romance with some diaries involved. I was thinking not bad, I want to watch some easy stuff. OH HELL I NEVER BEEN SO WRONG. Although I was seeking completelly different genre, I was absorbed by bestiality of this series. After I finished watching I couldnt help it and went to read the rest of story, because series is pretty much cut before anything gets propperly settled. Nikki Mirai series makes me wonder why mindfuck is not a legit genre yet. I do not want to spoil and to talk in general about this series is not going to give you any other impression than its some generic nonsence. Manga explains every damn thing and it will leave you breathless.
Best Anime Out there just go and watch this
